Landrover2 The MotorExpo show in Canary Wharf this year is only half ful and does not spill out to Cabot Square like it did in the last few years. It is held earlier this year and thus suffers from the gushing winds and lashing rains all week too. The crowd seems to be a bit smaller this year. There is a noticeable trend of new hybrid cars from a number of manufacturers such as Lexus, Audi and Toyota. Honda, Renault and Peugeot are missing this year.  The highlight of the show is probably the Landrover stand at the back of Jubilee Place, which allows people to sign up and took an obstacle tour with their flagship model.

The body scanners are coming !

Bodyscanner1 Canary Wharf is getting a new body scanner following the successful trial at Paddington. Passengers will be expected to be tested at random to detect if they are carrying explosives or have been in contact with explosives.

I asked All Bar One's front man Nene , and he did not provide me with any more clarification into this matter than my muddled interpretation of the rules. Ah well, I guess I will have to try to book the kids' birthday party there next time, just to satisfy my curiosity.

If you have been to Wong Kei off Shaftsbury Ave, you will know it serves the best Chinese food in town, at the cheapest price too. This one unique experience is sadly lacking in Canary Wharf. However, collectively we could make it worthwhile for someone to pedal to the West End and come back with a bike full of good Chinese food for everyone. Any taker ?
