around UK we go #3

helllo assalamualaikum

yes to those reading, including future me, just in case your in the mood to reminisce these old memories, this will be the last post regarding my experience in UK. even just writing it feels as sad as  leaving that country itself. i enjoyed myself too much there that i was so so so disappointed in leaving, but i did not have the chance to indulge long in these melancholic emotions coz i sped directly to class after arriving in Malaysia. now that i think about it, i really miss it. I went to hong kong when i was 16, but leaving that country i was sad, but i thought of Hong Kong as a really great place to visit. However, London is completely different, it made me feel, that i want to live there, i have to try living there, not for the rest of my life or anything but u know, the feeling of comfort that u get until u can think about living there, that's the feeling, that was exactly what i felt, like i could live there comfortably. it was so easy, everything seems easy. I'm in love, with that country, yes i am  

so back to the real story. after returning from Paris, i think we had about two days or maybe three, i can't recall, left in London before heading back. so guess what ? it's shopping time for me. hahahahaha. But before shopping i did manage to visit one last place. MADAME TUSSAUD. yess this is a must place to visit when ur in LONDON, i mean really it's almost as good as disneyland [okay, i'm joking] but the thing is, it is such a feast to the eye. A really joyful experience indeed. Because it’s madame tussaud’s, words won’t do it any justice so let the pictures handle all the describing required okay ?

REMINDER : these are not real people, so if I stand too close, please don’t judge me. Hahaha. I just had to stand close.

and these pictures are only few of the many people there, too much to put here.

and that's it, i don't have much to say except, it was worth a visit, really exciting to see these people be made into dolls that look oh so real.

so that's about it,  really hope to be able to get there once again.

around UK + paris we go #2

Hello assalamulaikum

Finally, it's been ages since i last updated. Well let's put the blame on my beloved course PHARMACY, don't get me wrong, i love it, but i really don't know how i manage my time when the semester starts, suddenly i'm on holiday, hahahah

Anyways, i've been meaning to continue this story, this experinece of mine finally being able to reach europe. Based on my memory i'll try my best to dig what i went thru early september last year.

so finally we arrived in London after a few pit-stops in edinburgh, liverpool and amesbury. when we arrived we were all tired and mushed up so we just retired for the night at tune hotel somewhere near oxford street. The next day was shopping day ! we went to a place called Bicester village where you can find loads of branded outlets there.So i didn't really shop, those who shop are only those who already had intended to buy something, and people who have money of course, kah kah kah. To get there we took a train from king cross train station. yess people, the exact station in harry potter ! i got so excited that day. hehe

 king cross !

too pretty to be just a shopping place eh ?

And came the next day, when we, took a train and went to the land of eiffel tower, PARIS~ wowweeeeee. honestly, we stayed at ibis budget hotel nowhere near the city. So, that area is not as pretty as my mind hve been picturing all these while. Actually it was a bit scary to me, and there was not much to see around there. the pretty places are those near tourist attraction, basically the city areas lah. Anyways we went around the next day, and some of the places we went were, Eiffel tower of course, Gar de Leon ( i'm not sure how to spell) and also The Louvre. I think i'll let the pictures describe everything.

 the top !

 Gar de Leon

 beca modern !


 budak ni excited lebihhhhh, hahaha

underground orchestra, just lovely,

wokayhh, so that was paris, the thing about paris is, it has so many types of trains. everytime i get on one, it's different from the ones before. there is even a double decker train. i really think KTM has to change to these kind of trains. and yeahh, about the people they are really friendly, everyone is saying BONJOUR that i have to force myself to learn how to say it properly just so that i could say it back. Food, is good, especially the bread. They make excellent bread, i can eat it just like that and be happy. I really wanted to taste their pastry but we were not sure if it was halal or not. Sometimes we just eat at arab restaurants, and by the way, there are a lot of those, so no worries bout food if u ever travel to paris. i mean not only paris, even london and liverpool and scotland has a lot of halal foods to eat.

and then, we returned to london once more. and as i am tired i will continue again in the nearest future inshaAllah.
