London Walks | Twickenham Riverside Walk

December 17, 2018
Twickenham Riverside Walk, London
It’s been months since I’ve written anything about my beloved London, life’s been hectic with work and I went on a few holidays too – not that I’m complaining. I honestly miss exploring London specially now since it’s too cold and gets dark quite early to do any explorations like before. The last walk that I’ve done in London was this – the beautiful Twickenham Rivers

Saying Thanks With A Bottle Of Whiskey

February 5, 2018
The Greek Mister celebrated his birthday a couple of days ago and I’ve always struggled on deciding what to give him for special occasions. He’s the simplest guy in the whole wide world – not into gadgets, not into clothes nor watches and definitely not into cars (not that I’d give him a car for his birthday, what is he? The King of England?) If there’s one thing he’s really very

August 16, 2017
London Eye, PinayFlyingHigh.com
Exactly one year ago today, The Greek Mister and myself took a flight out of the Middle East which was our home for 9 years to go to the greener pastures of London (quite literally). Whenever we’re reminded about it, we’ll both agree that it was the best decision we’ve ever made. Don’t get me wrong, we did enjoy our 9-year stint in the Middle East but the reality is, it’s not a forever

Weekends For The 30-Somethings In London

Hollyhock Cafe, Richmond, London, United Kingdom - pinayflyinghigh.com-109
London nightlife reminds me so much of how old I am right now. Going to the hip and happening places here on a weekend stresses me out if I’m being honest. The crowd, the noise and the drunk people trying to stand on their own two feet around me give me panic attacks. Many moons ago, I could pull an all-nighter dancing like there’s no tomorrow in a club somewhere in the lively city of Dubai. We’ll

The Eighth-Month of My Honeymoon Stage With London

June 24, 2017
Natural History Museum Ice Rink, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com
Has it been that long? That’s what my passport stamp says, that it has already been eight months when I left the desert life for good and started my adventures in the land of greener pastures (quite literally!). Eight months of living in bliss, it still feels so surreal to me. I know it might not mean a lot to some and it could somehow sound shallow but let me tell you my story.   When I was a kid living

Expat Life in London | EEA FM Residence Card Application

May 4, 2017
UK Residence card is the first thing one must do when moving to the UK as an expat. While the UK Home Office website offers a detailed information about the documents they require, there’s no clear step-by-step procedure as to how it’s done. I’ve searched every single UK immigration forums to see what needs to be done next which wasn’t very easy to do. So I thought I’d write about my o
