The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt

by MiMi in Art, Competition, Travel

While we were getting around in London, we noticed many artistic eggs distributed all over many places.. at first we thought it’s just a preparation for Easter, then we realized the metal plate below each egg which explained everything..

The story is that there are 209 eggs hidden across 12 Egg Zones across central London.. and in the competition’s website they have the maps of those 12 zones where you can use them to hunt and find all the 209 eggs..

 The first, second and third eggs we found them in Covent Garden

 This one was in Selfridges

These are in St. James’s Park

 This one is in Carnaby Street

 And this was also in Covent Garden

Whoever enters the competition might win The Diamond Jubilee Egg valued at over £100,000 by simply texting the keyword when they find an egg!

So what do you think.. should we participate? 😉

Real Food Market @Covent Garden

Thursday isn’t an ordinary day in Covent Garden.. it’s the day when even the largest appetites are satisfied with a mouth watering array of fresh food.. such as chickens, beefs, artisan cheeses, cupcakes, smoked fish, gourmet pies.. You name it 😉  We couldn’t resist not trying the well presented food in such atmosphere.. so I’ll take you to a small journey of what we tried 🙂

Spud . . now in London

Spud . . now in London

Spud is a luxury baked potato concept serving up British baked potatoes with your choice of tasty toppings. Choose from smoked Boston-style baked beans, game chilli con carne, Sicilan veg stew or just a generous pat of herb-rolled butter. Spud is serving coffee and pastries as breakfast, and spuds and salads for the whole day. They opened in 6 of July 2011, and they’re open for business now, but’ll be expanding their downstairs seating area in the next couple of weeks. Sounds interesting right? 😉 Gotta go to London to give it a try 😛
