Strawberry and chocolate

Summer means to enjoy as many types of fruit as I want!

'British strawberry' is one of them.
The cutest ever!

This is the way I always eat strawberries. 
I usually buy strawberries from the fresh market.
£1.00 per basket
*but below are not British strawberries, judging based on their shape.

...and this is my favourite chocolate spread.
Cadbury Crunchy Spread
sold at £2.00 each... £1.50 during sales.

Sometimes, I do eat strawberries with oriental pickled fruits.
They taste good together.

Hitchin Lavender Hertfordshire

My housemates and I drove all the way from Birmingham
to Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
We took almost 3 hours to reach this place
because we got lost and had to reroute the GPS many times..LOL.

The entrance fee of Hitchin Lavender is only GBP4.50
and you can cut as many lavender stalks as you want
to fill your brown paper bag.
You'll be given that bag and a pair of scissors
at the main entrance of the field.

There is a picnic area where you can relax.
You can eat your lunch while enjoying
a majestic purple view in front of you,
together with a pleasant scent of lavender.

These pictures will never do justice to what I saw.
But I do hope you enjoy them.
At least you can imagine how pretty the place is
and start planning your visit.

I can still imagine the smell of this field.
Well, you know the lavender fragrance of your car perfume right?
It is almost like that, but only this one is mixed with grass smell...LOL.
Very hot summer, indeed.

There is a sunflower field next to it.
But you cannot pick the sunflowers.

There is a cafeteria where you can buy food and drinks.

There are other facilities such as toilets and souvenir shop too.
I was looking for fridge magnets as I love to collect them.
Unfortunately, they do not sell fridge magnets here.
However, there are jute shopping bags, lavender scented products etc.
with the printed name of this place 'Hitchin Lavender'.

Again... I went back with a great smile.
See how I did to dry these lavender flowers.

Bye now.

Tewin Apple Orchard

My housemates and I went there on 12 August 2016.
It is located at 1, Upper Green, Tewin in Hertfordshire.
It was so fascinating to see apple trees.
There are toooo many types of apples here!
Although those apples were not fully ripe yet....
they looked gorgeous on their branches.
I am fully satisfied.

While we were there,
we dropped by at Tewin Village.
It is believed to be one of the nicest villages in the UK too.
I think, it really is nice, indeed.

It was indeed one of the hottest summer day ever!
We stopped at the shop to buy some drinks.
The shop owner is so lovely too.
I can say, people here are very friendly.

I think you should visit here.
I mean, if you happen to be on the way to somewhere.
We visited Tewin only after we enjoyed
Tewin is only 30 minutes away from there.
Both places are majestic.
We then left Hertfordshire with a smile!

Bye now.

Sugar-sprinkled tomato

I really love Korean sugar-sprinkled sliced tomato.
It is very easy to prepare.
Simply slice your tomato, and sprinkle on each slice,
depending on how sweet you want it to be.
I don't usually sprinkle much,
just enough to cover to lift its taste.
