Weekends For The 30-Somethings In London

June 28, 2017
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

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

Flowers are in bloom, weather is (a bit) warmer and children have now gone out of their winter cocoon – yes, it’s now spring in London! I have now officially witnessed the four seasons of this city since I’ve moved here last August and I can’t say I have a favorite season as of yet. I’m still embracing the change of weather (and scenery) from the desert life of the Middle East. Spring

I Was Robbed During An Afternoon Tea in London.

March 25, 2017
I’m still a little bit shaken about what happened to me the other day. I’ll try my best to go through it with you as I want to warn everyone of this despicable event which I wouldn’t wish to happen to my worst enemy. Yes, I was robbed during an afternoon tea in London and the person who did it was the regally-dressed hotel staff. She came gliding to our table and handed me the bill, as soon as I o

Date Night In London | Sunday Jazz at Hideaway

March 22, 2017
Hideaway, Streatham, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com-505
“This area¬†looks dodgy!” The Greek Mister said what I was thinking since we left the bus stop on our way to Hideaway, a jazz and comedy club in Streatham, London. There was nothing wrong with the area, it was just a bit crowded with people mingling about on the side streets and piles of trash here and there. Lol. It was 12 noon on a Sunday, we booked a table at Hideaway for lunch time with a jazz enter

Unique London Tours | Murder Mile Walk -Less Walk, More Murder

Unique London Tours - Murder Mile Walk - PinayFlyingHigh.com-501
Six months after I’ve relocated to London, I’m still playing tourist and joining so many tours around the city. The thing is, London is interesting and beautiful on its own but a deeper look to it past its external facade lies so many interesting stories which for me makes this city all the more interesting(, gruesome) and beautiful. I’m obsessed with city tours specially here in London as there&#
