MY TRIP TO EDINBURGH|SEPTEMBER


Hi there.

I wrote this earlier in September but I forgot to post it so here it is.

Nadhrah has gone back to Malaysia (I will miss you and the other cousins) but Cuna, Uncle Aie, Mama and Safiyyah were still in UK but they are at Edinburgh so we decided to visit them before they fly back. Dadda rented a Suzuki this time. It's just a small car that can fit us all. Hehe... We actually didn't want to sleep there but we think we will be late so we just took some clothes and put in a bag and went. We arrived there about 1 or 2 p.m.


Ayahde, Cik De, Nadhrah & Mawar came to our apartment before they left. Said our farewells in front of our apartment.

On the way to Edinburgh. The weather was nice.

First, we went to The Royal Botanic Garden. That place was huge. There, we took a lot of pretty pictures and we also bumped into some Malaysian Chevening Scholars that Dadda had contacted. After we're done, we went to a hotel that Mommy had booked last minute. Although the hotel was small, it was so beautiful. Mommy was so happy because the hotel was right in front of the student house where Mommy, Tok Mama and Pak Su stayed for a while when Tok Mama was studying in Edinburgh years ago. After that, we went to dinner at Nandos in a mall near Cuna's air BnB. We ate, talked and had a lot of free botttomless yogurt that comes with the kids' meal.  After that, we went to Cuna's BnB.

Nando's at Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre where we had dinner.

The next day was the day that Cuna and the others went back to Malaysia so we went to meet them again before they went to the airport. Before we went to meet them, we went around Edinburgh. We went to the house Mommy and Tok Mama stayed a long time ago. After that, we went to Mommy and Pak Su's school. Then we went to meet Cuna and the others at Edinburgh Waverley Train Station Mall. We ate lunch at Chopstix Noodle Bar. It was so good! After we're done eating, we went shopping!!!

Tok Mama's university, not her department though, hehe...

It was an Open Day weekend in Edinburgh so we got to go into McEwan's Hall, where students from Edinburgh University have their graduation ceremony.

Our last meal together before they went back to Malaysia - Lunch at Chopstix at Waverly Mall.

With Mama, Dadda's mom, on the way to the carpark.

We stopped by at Aunty Jill's apartment to say hi and for CuNa to return the car seat she borrowed for Safiyyah during their Scotland trip. We also said our goodbyes to each other here as we all went our separate ways.


After that, it's time to go home. My family and I went back to Glasgow. Cuna, Uncle Aie, Saifyyah and Mama went back to Malaysia (Bye guys! We will miss you!)

So that's all for now. Till my next post.
Bye.

It's Been A While...

Okay, okay... I know... it has been a while... In fact, this is my 1st post for this year! The fact is that my schedule is increasingly busy nowadays, I don't even have time to watch TV except in the mornings over breakfast! Anyway, let me just do a recap on what's been happening in my life in the past few months.

Well, firstly, the bibik we had for the past 2 years has finally gone back to her hometown in Indonesia. She came to help mommy and dadda take care of my brother, Idzhar and I 2 years ago and have been very helpful with the whole family. She wanted to extend her stay with us but her husband wanted her to go back and help their daughter at their food stall.

So since January, when she left us, Idzhar has been attending school with me at CIC. I have to tell you that he's adjusting pretty well with school life and I'm very proud of him. I'll be attending primary school next year and I hope that Idzhar will be fine being in school by himself without having me looking out for him like now.

Another exciting news is Pak Su Ami and Aunty Kynaz had a baby boy so I now have a cousin brother. That means that I have another brother to take care of too. His name is Syed Aaron Suffyan and he is such a chubby baby boy! He was born on the 30th of December so he'll be turning 1 in a few months' time.

That's me teaching Aaron how to do a selfie :)

Anyway, just wait for my next post that's coming real soon... I'm gonna tell you what happened during my birthday month. Do you remember what month it is? 

Will be back soon! Promise.
