Lunch in the fast lane

Yesterday I fancied a plate of greasy spoon fare as I wasn’t going to be eating until late in the evening. The first place I thought of was an old favourite, Ferrari’s which is next to Smithfield Meat Market. Don’t go if you fancy a friendly chat with the waiting staff but if it’s some cheap filling food (with a Chinese bias) you’re after at any hour of the day you’ll be at the right place! Sweet and sour pork noodles and a cup of tea for £6 was my choice but vegetarian options are also available. P

Who, me stressed?

Here’s a nice way to destress towards the end of the week without resorting to the bottle opener. Taking place at Shoe Lane Library just off Fleet Street EC4A 3JR fortnightly, Dragon Cafe in the City have a variety of things to take your mind off your worries. I didn’t realise I was stressed until I asked the man doing the 15 minute massage to “hurry it up a bit as I have to get back to work”. Sometimes we can’t see these things but Dragon Cafe in the City can and try to do something about it! P

A little way different

Here’s something a little different which takes place in a couple of months time on a Saturday in south London. For the past few years we’ve covered the seminars of Sifu Rose Oliver who regularly visits London from Shanghai (Post here.) This year she is over on Saturday 4th August  from 10:00am to 5.00pm at a venue to be confirmed in Crofton Park/Honor Oak Park.

The seminars suit all styles of Tai chi and it doesn’t matter how much experience you have (if any.) It’s at a great price (£40/£50 for the day which is cheap compared to other seminars) and taught in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, suitable for any level of practitioner from beginner upwards (or even if you’re just interested in the art and want to see what it’s all about.) To book a place please drop Rose a line at roseinchina2006@yahoo.co.uk #Roseoliverdoubledragon
