Hi there!

This September, there were a lot of activities that I've done with my family. We went sightseeing because Mama, Cuna, Uncle Aie and Safiyyah came to Scotland to visit Nadhrah and her family at Dundee before they fly back to Malaysia for good so after they visited them, they all (including Nadhrah and her family) came to visit us in Glasgow.

Falkirk wheels

On the 21st of September, we went to Falkirk to see the Falkirk Wheel and also The Kelpies, the 2 statues of horses' heads. At the Falkirk Wheel, there were lots of activities you can do there. There was also a huge playground and you know us, the kids, we went straight to the playground when we arrived. There was a tall and huge slide a the playground. We want to ride that slide when we arrived but unfortunely, we had to take care of Safiyyah and Mawar. I don't mind taking care of Safiyyah because I've done a lot of babysitting with my little cousins. Back in Malaysia, I helped Cuna and Che Ah take care of Safiyyah and Eizaz so I don't really mind if mommy or my aunties ask me to take care of those little ones.

Ok ok, back to the story. So we played with Safiyyah and Mawar. Nadhrah was really frustrated that she didn't get to play at the slide and then Dadda said that we can go to the slide and he will take care of Safiyyah and Mawar. We were so excited that we got to go on the highest slide there! Safiyyah wanted to follow me to the slide so I asked Cuna if Safiyyah could follow me on the slide. Cuna allowed so I brought Safiyyah to the slide. There were 2 slides there. 1 is smaller than the other one. I brought Safiyyah to the smaller one first and she liked it so I took her to the bigger one next. I was surprised that Safiyyah was really brave. She climbed to the top and she wanted to go again after sliding down! I was really happy that I could have fun with her and at the same time she could have fun with me.

After we've done playing, we went to eat at the cafe near by. We had pizza. It was not halal there, so we ordered plain ones without meat. We ordered 2 kinds of pizzas, the margarita and the other one with  mushrooms. Beside the cafe, there was one more activity that the kids could enjoy. It's called 'Bungee Trampoline' where the kids will put on a bungee trampoline harness hooked on several bungee ropes. Those ropes were attached to some poles or bars reaching an average of 15 feet above the trampoline. As the kids jumped higher and higher the ropes moved up the poles allowing the kids to jump even higher and allowing them to do some tricks like flips and other cool tricks. We wanted to try it but it was kind of expensive if we were to convert to Malaysian money (Ringgit Malaysia).

Lunch - Pizzas!

After we're done eating, we went to The Kelpies where there were 2 statues of horses' heads. We were thinking of walking to that place but it would have taken us 1 hour and 30 minutes (4 miles) for us to get there. So instead of walking we decided to drive there. Once we arrived, we had ice cream! We took pictures, played tag and more. After a long day at Falkirk and Kelpies, we went to Cuna's Air BnB. It was so beautiful and spacious. We had early dinner there and we, the kids, played hide and seek because the place was so big!

The next day, it was our turn (my family) to take them jalan-jalan Glasgow! Early morning that day, we showered as fast as we can because Cuna and the others wanted to come to our house first before going jalan-jalan. They drove to our area so they wanted to leave the car at our house. Ayahde didn't join because Mawar had a fever but Nadhrah wanted to join so Cuna went to pick up Nadhrah at Uncle Kolget's (Ayahde's friend) house, where they were staying while in Glasgow and it was near to Cuna's house. They hung out at our place until zohor before we went out.

After all of us have performed our zohor prayers,  we went to The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and also The Kelvin Hall Museum. After that, we went to Sauchie Hall Street to have an early dinner. We didn't have lunch cause we were trying to cover Glasgow as much as we could. We had dinner at Wagah Grill House with Aunty Natasha (Dadda's friend) and also Uncle Aaron (our lanlord) and his family. Ayahde, Chede and Mawar also joined us for dinner so it was a full house! After everyone has done eating, it was time to go home.
