MY TRIP TO LONDON || 11TH TO 13TH OCTOBER 2019

Hi there.

                So, I have been telling you all about my September activities in my previous posts. Now, I'm going to tell you about my October activities.

On 11th October my family and I went to London. We went to London because of Dadda's Chevening orientation. It was held at Excel London so we had the opportunity to follow him. From Elderpark, we took a bus and went straight to the central train station. We met Dadda there after his class and took the 12:30 p.m. train.

We arrived in London at about 5:30p.m. From the station, we went to the underground station and from there, we went to Barking. At Barking, we stayed at the Bank Hotel. The room was really cosy!

Our dinner the 1st night in London, just in front of the hotel. We did not expect the serving to be this huge!

The next day, Dadda woke up early because he had to attend the orientation. So, there were only me, Idzhar, Aysha and Mommy left at the hotel. After Zohor prayers, we went to explore Barking. First, we went to the Saturday market right in front of our hotel. Then, we went to Boots pharmacy across the road to buy Aysha's diapers. After that, we went to a nearby mall. The mall was not that big  but there was a supermarket so we bought some snacks to be eaten in the room. After shopping, we went to get some drinks at Costa Coffee that was just around the corner from our hotel. We went back to the hotel to perform our Asar prayers before meeting Dadda and the other Malaysian Chevening scholars at a restaurant for dinner.

The next day, we packed our bags and headed to Liverpool street. We went there by train. There, we stayed at Travelodge hotel near the station. On the way there, we stopped over at Canary Wharf to see Dadda's friend from university days, Uncle Jonathan. He and Dadda both went to Warwick University years ago and he stayed on and is now working in London. He's married and has a baby boy. We had lunch with him and his family at an Italian restaurant on the ground floor of his apartment. That night, we went for dinner at Melur, one of Malaysian restaurants that is owned and run by a Malaysian. We met more of Dadda's friends from boarding school. Mommy's friend, Aunty Azah, who's staying in London at the moment with her husband also joined us there. We had a lovely dinner that night. We finally got to eat Malaysian food!

The next day, we checked out from the hotel and headed straight to the train station to go back to Glasgow. We checked into another hotel for the 2nd night because Dadda wanted to be nearer to the station to make it easier for us to travel to the station.

So that's all about my London trip. It was a short and sweet trip as we got to see our friends along the way too, in addition to Dadda attending his orientation.

Till my next post!

Bye!
