My cousin came down to Brighton on Saturday, and it seemed like she took the rest of London with her as the streets were full of wanderers.
After poking around the North Laine with its always fascinating mix of shops (and people), we had a quick stop for lunch at the packed Dumb Waiter Experience.
We sat upstairs in its cheery stencilled room.
It's popular with kids.
I had a vege burger and she had a breakfast of egg, sausage, bacons, beans.
Every trip to Brighton must include the Royal Pavilion, but you've seen that already so here's more food pictures.
The window display at the Bar du Chocolat where we were part of the window entertainment for passersby as they watched us eat....
the slab of cake. One gran even knocked on the glass and played 'you eat the cake and you'll turn into a big fat slab yourself' charades with us.
The aftermath: we handled the monster quite well, I reckon.
Oh and ching brought CNY goodies with her, delivered from Singapore! Bah kwa, pork floss, love letters, my mum's home made peanut cookies and oddly, prawn rolls. Thanks everyone who helped in Operation CNY Loot.
