MY VISIT TO DUNDEE | 13-15TH OF SEPTEMBER

Hi there!

So, I have been writing about my journey to Scotland on the previous post. Now, I'm going to tell you about my visit to Dundee.

We went to Dundee to visit my cousin Nadhrah and her family who is going to fly back to Malaysia at the end of September. Nadhrah and her family went to Dundee because last year, Ayahde (her father) had received the Chevening Scholarship too but he attended the University of St Andrews and they stayed in Dundee. I was so excited to meet my cousin, Nadhrah. Unfortunely, Nadhrah was at school when we arrived at her home but luckily, when Ayahde came home from the mosque,he asked me if I'd like to follow him to pick up Nadhrah from her school and I said yes! I was so excited to finally meet Nadhrah after a very long time.

When we arrived at Nadhrah's school, she was actually waiting under a tree. She was waiting for Ayahde to come. She was also waiting for her friend to come out from school. When she saw Ayahde from far she was curious because she thought there was a strange kid who was walking with her father. She couldn't recognise me so we walked until she could see us clearly. When she saw me, she was so excited that she ran towards me and hugged me. I hugged her back and she said that she hasn't seen me in ages and I laughed.

After we arrived at her house, we chat in her room. After we had lunch and everyone was ready, we went out to explore Dundee. Che De didn't follow us because she was heavily pregnant and wanted to rest.

Time to explore Dundee!

We went to V&A Dundee. That place was full of art. We also went to the Overgate Mall to eat at a restaurant called Chopstix Noodle Bar but unfortunely, that restaurant was closed so we went somewhere else outside the shopping mall. Before we went out of the shopping mall, we stopped by a candy shop. The candy shop had a wide variety of candies. It smelled so good! Nadhrah asked Ayahde if we could buy some candy to share and Ayahde said yes so we bought a  box of candy called 'Mike and Ike'. They tasted so good. We tried one piece each so we won't spoil our appetite because we are going to eat remember? So we went to finally eat at Fatburger near the mall.

The next day, we went to St. Andrews to play golf at the British Golf Museum. It was fun and a little bit windy so it was cold. After that, we ate at the cafe at the museum. The cafe's nachos were so good! We ate the whole thing even the cheese that stuck at the bottom of the bowl. After that, we went to the St. Andrews castle near the beach. We took pictures, play with the rocks and we even played hide and seek. After that, we went to an ice cream shop called Jannettas Gelateria. That place had a wide variety of ice cream flavours. There was even a Ferrero Rocher ice cream flavour. I ate the Oreo cream flavoured ice cream. It tasted really good. After a long day at St. Andrews, we went to Sizzlers for dinner, near the Dundee Central mosque.

The next day, we went to Dundee Law at the top of the hill to see the nice view of Dundee. From the top, we could see the whole of Dundee! It was freezing up there but still, it was beautiful. After that, we went to the Dundee Museum of Transportation. At the museum, we played the treasure hunt game that was provided for kids who visit. It was fun! We managed to get all the answers and we received a candy for each of us as a gift from the kakak at the counter. We also won things from a claw machine game that was placed next to the counter. The machine was full of little eggs surprise container (just the container). We had to use the claw to pick up the little eggs. It was all by luck. You either get more than 1 or just 1. We tried but we only got 1 but still we got a present. It was fun!

After that, we went to a castle. I can't remember what the castle's name was. In front of the castle, there was a playground. At the playground, there were lots of cool playing equipments, there was also a water play spot thingy (I don't know what it's called). We went there and Idzhar got all wet so we played somewhere else at the playground. At the playground, there was also a go-kart track, a mini golf course for kids and also a sandbox where you can play with sand and all the tractors or the equipment that you need at a working area. After we played at the playground, we went into the castle. Inside the castle, there was also activities for the kids on the 3rd level.

After that, we went to eat at an indian restaurant called Taza. The restaurant was a buffet kind of restaurant. It also had a chocolate fountain! I was so excited when I saw the chocolate fountain. We ate a lot at that place! They even had churros, candies, ice creams and more.

After that, it's time to go home.... my family and I had to go back to Glasgow.

I'm baaaack! ...And I have news.

Hi there!

            It's me Nadyne. Mommy has been writing my posts for me all these years but now we've decided that I should take over from mommy because I'm 11 years old! Ok ok, now i'm going to tell you about my journey to Scotland.



I went to Scotland because Dadda received the Chevening Scholarship for this year. I was so excited when I heard the news! At the same time, I was kinda sad to leave my friends and family. I know I can still communicate with them through Instagram and all the other social medias and I also know that I can still meet them next year but still, I really miss them!

So now, I'm going to tell you about my journey to Scotland. On the 8th of September, we went to the KL International Airport to board the plane to Glasgow. We went to Glasgow by the Emirates airline. Dadda will be doing his Masters degree at Strathclyde University in Glasgow. I was really excited on the plane. I also felt like this was a dream but is not! We arrived at the Glasgow International Airport at 7:30 pm. By then, I was so tired because it was 2.30am in Malaysia and we would already be fast asleep. The next day, on the 9th of September, we went to High Street to walk around the city and explore. We went to Primark, Tesco, gift shops and more. It was fun and the sun was out so the wind was extra cold. The next day, we did the same thing but this time, it was just me, Mommy, Idzhar and Aysha while Dadda went house-hunting. The next day, we did the same thing all over again. Hahaha!!! Well, I'm pretty sure that this week we would be doing the same thing over and over again.
