3d2n @LONDON

actually, to be exact, it was inly 2d2n stay @London, as we arrived at London around 10 pm on 28th March (Sunday)..the journey by train took 2 hours to reach St Pancras Int London from notts train station.

We stayed at Mabledon Hotel, which costs GBP130 for 2 nite stay..

First day, after breakfast, we took a tube to Hyde Park station to get to Msian High Comission.
After submitting the dox for attestation, we had to come back to the embassy to collect it at 3.30 pm the same day.
Sempat mkn and beli tapau masian food at mini cafe at the embassy. I had mihun goreng, tapau nasi lemak, while my hubby had nasi lemak and tapau nasi campur (lauk ayam+sayur)>>each meal cost GBP 3.50 ...

Then we jln2 at the Hyde Park,
bought tix to board the Hop On Hop Off bus which is meant for London tourists..the tour cost us GBP 24 for each adult, and the tix was valid for 24 hours...
it's worth paying for the tour as we managed to visit and see all the main attractions london tower, trafalgar square, buckingham palace, london eye, parliament, london aquarium, tower bridge


the best part, sempat jugak naik Thames River cruise << part of the hop on hop off bus package ;)

we had our dinner at one msian resturant >> Jom is ok...price pun boleh tahan :p

2nd day, jln2 sambil shopping at Oxford Street...

sempat lg naik bas hop on hop off tu..coz the tix that we bought was valid till 11 am

then balik to notts naik bas at victoria coach station...journey by bus took 3 and half hours from london to notts...sampai kat notts pukul 9 pm lebih...

i have uploaded more pics at my fb...kalau rajin feel free to peep yer ;)

London here we come!!

me have been busy preparing for our london short holiday...from sunday 28th March eve till Tuesday 30th March eve...

this is gonna be my 2nd time in london...first time when I went there in 2008, by univ tour bus..and me just went to oxford street<

so, me was pretty excited with this this time  me going together with my beloved hubby & kids...
actually the main reason of course to get attestation from malaysian high comission office...and the rest, of course for sight-seeing, and lil shopping i guess ;) initially, we plan to visit london for ariff's bday (15th April), or for my byday (28th April), but we have to make early trip to get the attestation done (which is somehow urgent)

so far, train ticket purchase is done, hotel booking is done, and coach(bus) tix purchase is done, all via online.
journey via train will take about 2 and half hours from nott to london, whereas by coach, it is around 3 hours.

we plan to take the hop-on-off london bus, which is catered for tourists to london...hopefully everything goes well as we wish and plan...

me will be updating my london holiday story once we come back ;)

Confessions from a new Dress-a-holic ;)

Lately, I've become very obsessed with dresses....

and....the obsession is aggravated by the fact that...
✿✿✿ ...there are simply myriad of lovely, gorgeous dresses selection here in UK ..welll.... spring/summer is coming lots of new dress collection available everywhere....and purchase is just few mouse clicks away....either online or even at the shop/boutique...

>>>becoz me is wearing tudung, of course when me put on my dress, me wear it with a pair of jeans...

why me have this 'dress-a-holic' syndrome....

other than the reason mentioned above..
♥♥♥ like dressing in dress coz it looks decent (it covers my big hips & butts)..

♥♥♥ ....& me believe it looks trendy, chic and stylish in dress :p :p

♥♥♥ me love taking pics...and since me & family planning to visit London soon (and France & Spain later), so me must have a collection of nice dress.... so that can snap nice pics with nice scenery in nice dress :p...what a reason :p :p

so far, me have managed to grab 4 dresses since me arrived here...and this one is the latest one....

me bought this one online ( love this Next brand,coz the design is nice ;) and the delivery is prompt too(if order today, tomorrow got it straightaway!)

and me can bet that this one won't be the last in the list ;)...

and me is delighted to know that my niece is also sharing the same dress-a-holic syndrome with me...she's a teenager after-all, so she is well justified to be stylish & trendy in dress ;)

Mommy and kids' day out >>> jalan2 @ city 21st March 2010

The weather has improved tremendously compared to the first time when we arrived it's pretty ok to go out and jalan2...and the best part, I dun have to wear my bulky winter coat anymore, except for the sweater which is still a must, since the temperature during daytime is now around 10 degree celsius.<< it was freezing zero degree couple of months ago...

bas lmbt sampai,so guna timer amik pic near the bus stop

Mr Hubby is working on weekends, so to avoid extreme dullness of staying at home, I took out my 2 kids for jalan2 @city >>naik bas!! and of course pushing my lil Ariff in the stroller while Zharfan walked...

In the city...
ada eye of nottingham, but unable to have  a ride yet coz me with stroller and 2 to come with Mr hubby lah klau nak naik benda ni...

after lots of walking and playing at indoor playground in one of the malls (Broadmarsh Shoppin Centre)...I let Zharfan to be in the stroller, and me carryiny Ariff in baby carrier...>>rasa mcm nak tercabut lutut carrying 8kg Ariff and pushing 14kg Zharfan in the stroller...and both fell asleep due to exhaustion..

some pics at playground

still, i got to walk to catch  a bus, and sempat lg window-shopping at Marks &Spencer, Primark, Boots, Next, and managed to grab a dress kaler purple/blue tiny floral pattern at Dorothy Perkins @Victoria Centre << sbb ada sale...
me posing in new zharfan tlg snap this pakai tudung pink sbb mls nak iron tudung kaler purple/blue :p
the dress was priced GBP 30 normal price, and reduced to GBP me bought one!!me dilanda wabak 'gile' beli dress to cure ni...

penat, yet puas ati lah :p
