*snort* It seems that almost everyone at home is sick *snort*. The worst part of it would be that we still can't open up the windows thanks to the insanely cold weather outside, still. Which is why I haven't updated the blog for a couple of days, most of the time all I want to do is just lay down on the bed wrapped in my comforter; something that I am probably gona end up doing in a bit.
When Mak and Abah got to London, husband first decided that he would play tourist guide but seeing as how we got defeated by the kinda miserable weather when we were there (rain and cold winds) Abah opted for taking the proper tourist way out. We got on the hop-on-hop-off busses. Which although really, for the love of God, makes us look like some noob tourists it actually prevented us from spending too much time underground taking the tube. So we did get to see the heart of London and then some. To get on the bus itself we had to collect the tickets and wait at the appointed place which was a few steps away from Trafalgar Square. Anyone who has ever played Monopoli would know how 'valuable' this spot is in the game! ;)
Oh and how can I not mention how many Hindi movies that have used this particular place as their backdrop? But the most memorable one would be this one from 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' (clicky clicky). You can sorta imagine me exclaiming 'Where are the pigeons?' in my high-pitched voice when we finally got there. It was as though all the Bollywood movies totally lied to us! But what happened was loads of people started feeding the pigeons at the square until those pigeons started getting rowdy and drunk on breadcrumbs. So no more encouraging bad bird behaviour!
It was fun to finally see this place in the flesh after so many movies and what not, that I imagined it to be bigger. And to all those kids who were happily terrorising the lion's head, I don't like you because I wanted to do that too! *jealous* Some other noob tourist moment maybe, hmmmmmph.
Hopefully more posts to come soon, unless I get swallowed whole by my comfy bed and duvet. Sekian, terima kasih! ;)
