18 January 2011

The very last year in my 20's.

As usual, birthdays are sinonym with dinners.. Hubby brought me to dinner, in-laws belanja lunch, and my parents threw me a BBQ birthday party. Makan aje..

As for the presents , banyak la pula tahun ni, from family & friends. Thank you so much! Love y'all! 
I am so grateful.

My fav ribs, a treat from him 

Free desert for birthday lady

Nothing is more meaningful than celebrating your day with your BFFs

And the best birthday gift ever was when me & hubby registered ourselves for performing Hajj on my birthdate. He said we have to go while we are still kuat , nanti dah tua tak larat nak buat macam2. We are ready for Labbaikallah humma labaiqq..InsyaAllah when the time comes

Every year is always a better and happier year for me. I am so blessed...

Stonehenge - Wiltshire , England

Not enough of London, we decided to go to Bath, UK on the 2nd day. 
The driver & our ride.

On the way to Bath, we dropped by Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This place is one of the many of English Heritages, whereby these stones are believed to be there because of many reasons. Even until now, they are uncertain of the actual purpose of  the existance of these stones. One of the reasons is believed to determine the time, over 2000 years ago.

Sapa nak beli poskad ni, 50 sen je satu
Though it looks sunny but the wind is cold

Carefully listening to the history
No, those were not handphones. We were carefully listening to the audio which were given to us on our way in. This explain clearly as we were told to press the number as we are in front of certain area, so that we can see clearly from the eyes of the researchers.

There are also an open farm beside this area. It's very huge and I was wondering didnt these sheeps get lost while eating the grass? 
Hantar kat Tony Roma's suruh masak lambchop sure sedap

Me spent a lot on coffee coz its so cold! Coffee & hot choco are my fav drink overthere

Though it looks sunny, but the weather is +- 6 degrees , which is cold, but still bearable compare to while we are in Europe.

I know it looks like just a stone to somebody or even me before we arrived. But as they are in front of my eyes, I was astonished by the history and in fact, how in the world these stones get themselves there? 

I'm starting to love English Heritages. There are hundreds of them in the UK. I made a silent promise to myself that I will tour all of them one day :)

London- Day 1

On the 16th of Nov, we flew to London via Doha and even the flight took us almost 24 hours plus the transit & we missed AidilAdha due to the exchange of time zone, we neglected all of that because we are too excited.
As soon as we reached London Heathrow Airport around 10.30pm local time, my cousin uncle fetched us at the airport to his mum's residence (my mum's aunty) at Isleworth, Hounslow, London. We stayed there throughout our stay in UK. My tok aunty has been the residence of United Kingdom for the past 38 years.

My cousin Yasmin, who's studied in Sunderland for a year, went back to our tok's house for holiday, very well versed in London show us around on the first day. The London Metro & buses are very 'friendly' I can say whereby we can understand the route & lines in a snap.

Waiting the bus near my tok's house

The travel card is quite expensive, which is 6.80 pounds (RM35) for a day card for a person, but the good thing is u don't have to buy any ticket anymore for a day and u can hop on to any public transport in London. Anyway, u can't translate every single thing in Ringgit as u will go crazy! U translate bila nak shopping je, but not makan & travelling cost. Anggap macam RM6.80..

Its my first time in London, so, tempat2 wajib kene pegi such as Oxford Street, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Westminster.

London Eye

Big Ben

 Petticoat Lane Market

We went to this market with the perception (from Internet) that we can get the cheap deal here. When we reached there, unfortunately a lot of the shops were closed and the things sold are not to my expectation, macam pasar malam. Of course, I didnt buy anything. Maybe because it's not Sunday.

Oxford Street

Personally I really like Oxford Street. The only thing that I don't like is because the number of people there. Its too many! You can see a different types of faces around here, as I guess London is among the highest city that received visitors every day.

Oxford Street, Look at the people!

Masa kat sini I called my buddy Aida, who's staying at London for the past 2 years (aida, kat sini la aku call ko) , didnt realize that your house was so near to Oxford Street! Tapi sorry aku tak sempat pun nak jumpa ko as my time is very limited (daytime ends at 4pm!) and I also bring a 'batalion', susahkan ko je nanti :) Anyway I guess u r busy too entertaining your lil sis kan..

I love cooking, but....

I enjoy cooking so much, it's just the matter of preparation & after cooking & eating. Agree?

I love to cook for my loved ones ; husband, family, friends. Its just the preparation that yikes me. When people said to my husband ' Waaa, dah sihat aa skang! '
and he goes 'Tula, my wife cook sedap sangat' Wowowo, tak kembang ke pungkuk2 anda kalau your hubby cakap camtu. Almost everytime org ckp dia nya badan dah naik dia ckp camtu. Me, die of smiling...

Ok, now, do you have this problem when u cook u will sweat a bit especially at the forehead, and your hair will smell like the chicken oil. I hate that I have to shampoo after everytime I cook. Sampai terfikir nak pakai shower cap pun ada masa masak. Kang aku pakai Chef Hat tu melampau la plak jiran sebelah tengok, macamla masak hebat2, padehal tengah goreng ayam je.

How la..

Singapore Trip

I've been very busy with work lately , that I rarely have time to update my stories.

By the time I have the time, I totally forgot what I wanna talk about.

Ok, phewhh... I just got back from a trip to Singapore for a potentially business trip. Yes, I 'carik' keje kat sana, meaning, wanna find the opportunities to do anything over there. Well, my passion is traveling, so this is part of my step to venture into travel while doing business.

I popped out the idea to my hubby and in an instant he agreed (he's the best, isn't he?) We went to Singapore on Sunday by car, and we parked our car sumwhere around Orchard Road, and breeze walking together and sometimes hop on to the MRT to go to the adjacent areas, while keeping our eyes open of the surrounding, sambil dating & macam-macam.

Here are some of the photos ;

Near Beach Road. Back view is the Eye of Singapore

We parked the car at this mall. Cathay, macam Cineleisure kat Mutiara Damansara.

Hubby sukaaaa sangat nak tengok movie kalau pergi tempat2. I was always against the idea coz bila tengok movie sure lah u dah tak jalan2 tgk scenery, unless u really have time to waste. Tapi esok nya tengok jugak, sebab at that time I was so exhausted of walking around Orchard Road, and a couple of hours of movie will refresh me a lil bit.

Oh ya, since I like to travel on budget with luxury (If you know what I mean) , Tune is the best choice! We spent like only RM55 per night for a double bed room and the mattress is super comfort plus the shower is so 'hujan lebat' type. Boleh bayangkan? That's all a travelers require after a long tiring day. A good sleep and a good shower. We stayed there for 2 nights while going in and out of Singapore for 2 days. I'm planning a next trip with my brothers and sisters to Universal Studios nanti :)
