UK Trip : Oxford Street and Marble Arch

 We arrived in London at around 7.30am local time. Upon checking in at Premier's Inn,where we stayed for 3 nights, we immediately started our discover London 'adventure' *wink*. We stayed near the King Cross St. Pancras train station (about 5 min walk from our hotel).

Our first destination was Oxford Street. Oxford Street is home to major department stores and numerous brands' flagship stores, as well as hundreds of smaller shops. It is the major shopping street in central London, though not the most expensive or fashionable, and part of a larger shopping district with Regent Street, Bond Street and other smaller nearby streets.

Kids were excited as they experienced their first Tube ride there (well it was the first time for me, hubby and my sisters too). My sisters were in awe as we reached there. All fimiliar brands back home are here. With a long list in their hands (form friends and colleagues) they shop from door to door.

What did I buy? Well...I bought some souvenirs from a souvenir stall there. Yup! 1st day there and I was buying souvenirs already hahaha. It was at a good price too. Bought some quality key chains, fridge magnets...hmm..the typical souvenirs :). They were sold at 5pounds for 5 or 1.25p for 1. I was glad I bought them there because after that, I could not find any other shop in London or outside of London that sells key chains that cheap. They were all sold at 10pound for 5 or 4 pcs at other places.

We went back to the hotel at around 4pm. It was still bright. Sun sets at 9pm in Summer. however most shops closes at 6pm. But there were a few that closes at 9pm. Kids were flat by the time we got back. We ate kebabs we bought for lunch and soon after that, all were asleep. Woke them up at 12am for some snacks and dinner then force them to go to bed again so they can be fresh and fully recharge the next morning.It was kind of hard at first. Though it was 12am in London, in Malaysia it was 8am, LOL. Alhamdulillah, kids adjusted to the time difference fast.

On the second day, we took a tour around London City on the Big Bus Tour. We started our tour at Marble Arch. We experienced some showers during the tour. Made a few stops along the tour at a few London's famous landmarks and tourist spots..such as the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and went to Sealife as well.

UK Trip : The journey to

After a long hiatus, I'm finally back :). Will be writting on our recent holiday spent in the UK :). At least, there will be something to read back on when all sweet memories in my head are being clouded with other stuffs ;).

Alhamdulillah..for the rezeki given by Him..we all get to set foot to the land of Great Britain.It was long planned by my mom. Cancelled once, three years back. Finally, last May, it was finally realised. We spent about a week there. Along with my family for the trip were my mom, and my two sisters.

We went with Etihad Airlines. The journey from KL to London took us 7 hours from KLIA to Abu Dhabi and another 7 hours from Abu Dhabi to London. With 3 hours of transit time at Abu Dhabi International Airport in between.

Update : Hafiy's birthday

I'm backkkk!!!
Wow! After a loooonnng hiatus, I finally decided to keep this blog active again (well, that's the plan). This blog was neglected because I was kind of a little (a LOT actually) biased towards my other blog, Itsy Doodles. And later, when Itsy Doodles Shop was created, I totally left this blog unattended huhuhu.

So..back to the title post, Hafiy's birthday was on the 5th of this month (it's still January people). He turned F.O.U.R . We decided to treat him at Baskin Robbins for ice-cream. 

We had a great time. The birthday boy enjoyed his ice-cream till his last scoop. To read more on Hafiy's birthday post here.

This took place last week during the school break. I will not write much cause I'm sure many other bloggers have pretty much blogged about this event. The differences between my post and theirs are, the pictures here ada kita orang dan tak ada dia orang. Hehehe...
