The last few weeks in Brighton have been so lovely - but sadly it's getting cold and cloudy again though...
We took a little walk and sat around at Royal Pavilion, and sometimes listening to him playing a bit of piano at Brighton Station :)
Isn't it so adorable that there is this cute piano sitting inside the station, and it even says "Please Play Me"? :)
It was so amazing how many people stopped by and listened to his music!
He does play amazingly beautiful even with this quite out of tune piano, you know :)

I hope this upcoming week will be another wonderful one for everyone!
And yes, I will have to cook much healthier with more greens :D

n.b. From next week, I might not be able to upload new posts as frequent as I used to since I'll have to live in a cave full of books for my work...:D But as I've got so many ideas that I want to share with you, I will try my best to write as much as I can - around twice-three times a week, so please bear with me :)

Cheers!
