Missing the point?

It’s another scorcher in London!
The sunshine is white-hot at midday. Mmmm… a heyday for ice cream vendors, huh?
I wish if I were sitting outside with a cup of frozen yogurt. However, I must get on with the order for my A/W collection. Ohhhh… this temperature is so not for handling woolies…

When I took Mr.B out for a walk this morning, I popped in at the corner shop nearby and bought a copy of Time Out. Hoping to find more information about any Olympic related events, I turned the page after page. And I was throughly disappointed.

The same as shopping in Marks & Spencer, I tend to be let down by Time Out time to time.
Instead of any practical information for The world’s biggest sporting event, the pages are filled with some lip service by their “famous London faces”, singing praises about the charm & the greatness of the city. Don’t take me in a wrong way. I love this city as well. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be putting up with it for twenty years. However, I am annoyed because, in my opinion, this week’s issue should have provided practical information for the visitors which I believe that the majority of them are here for London 2012. The useful information such as how to get around the venues or about the restrictions when visiting certain areas of London during the games… etc. Any of those are completely missing from the content. The editor is so missing the point. I want my money back! I was rather indignant while leafing through the copy. The editorial may argue that that kind of information is available from London 2012’s website and should be downloaded by the individuals accordingly. But, how about the people who don’t have any access to the web or a printer? Anyway, isn’t that the point of buying a copy of Time Out which is supposed to be the only listing magazine of London? For me, the issue only serves as a TV listing. So ANNOYING!

Anyway, Mr.B is not bothered about some minor celebs trumpeting rather superficially about their fab life in London…

He knows that he has his cushy life in here already. He is nodding off…
