And this time, here I am.. London, England, United Kingdom.
Two days before fly to Paris, partner was suggesting to book the flight to London. He always claim that he is not much into travelling however both Paris & London, he is the one that suggested for this. This is what I am getting don’t understand with man. LOL. And I was like we didn’t even fly yet to Paris & now we already booked the ticket to London for the next month.
To shorten the story, we booked the ticket to London & the trip is on my birthday. So yes, I was celebrating my 26th birthday in London
We flew from Prague to London Luton Airport on 18th June 2014 & we were there for 4 nights. London is a big city, should spend more time there actually. Lucky me, before I went London, I was asking about the tips in London from my teammate which are British Guys. There are about 5 British guys in my team so it makes my trip easier.
We are in London, England!
First day; Good Morning London. Actually I’m not a big fan on London but this time is exception. It’s just because of my birthday & because of the cheap flights & also invitation from partner. So I walked from area Victoria Station to Palace of Westminster, Westminster Bridge, St. James Park, Buckingham Palace, Wellington Arch, Piccadilly, & we had lunch at Nando’s Regent Street. I’m so happy to get Nando’s this time as they don’t have it in Prague.
St. James Park
After lunch, we continue our walk to National Art Gallery which is free entry & also to Trafalgar Square. Next, we had some rest at Whitehall Gardens & also we walked to riverside & sit around Cleopatra’s Needle.
National Art Gallery, Trafalgar Square
We had a very nice dinner which is Burger & Lobster not far from Green Park. It was a perfect dinner! It’s 20 pounds each.
Second day; We went to Madame Tussauds the wax museum. It was amazing to see those celebrities & it looks real. I think this is my first wax museum visit. Before this I was just watching in TV, magazines & just couldn’t believe that finally I’m here. Yay!
Madame Tussauds with the celebrities
In the afternoon, we went for lunch at Malaysian Hall & from there, we took a walk in Hyde Park. It is very huge & I really like it especially with the lake. We feed the pigeons with bread & it was so nice surrounded by them.
Next; This is what I was waiting for long time. Finally I could enter Harrods, Knightsbridge London! And of course my main purpose is to buy some handbags. Lucky me, partner bought me a handbag for my birthday. Thank you Sayang
I also managed to get another shopping bag from Harrods & also another cute bag from Ted Baker which is the shop just outside Harrods. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time to shop a lot & partner already warned me not to spend time a lot in shopping mall. Sobs.
We also had some nice hi-tea at The Tea Room in Harrods. The price is just too much, What to do; This is London! LOL
Third day; 21st June 2014. Hey, it’s my birthday! I am officially 26! Yay! First time in my life celebrating my birthday outside of country that I was born. It’s amazing experience as I was expecting to celebrate my birthday this time just in Prague however I got it more.
I’m a birthday girl in London
To have a romantic birthday celebration (not so romantic maybe) we went for London Eye River Cruise on Thames River. With this, we managed to see the London city around the riverside.
We were lucky at that time the Tower Bridge is opens. We could see clearly how the Tower Bridge looks like when it’s open for the ships to cross.
We get back to the port & we had English lunch around Trafalgar Square. It’s a birthday lunch actually. LOL. Just a simple lunch however it’s not about the lunch. It’s all about your birthday! Hehe.
Birthday lunch with a piece of cake
After lunch, we went to Oxford Street to see what’s there. It was too many people & so crowded. People are just crazy with shopping. Glad that I could see, experiencing it & be on Oxford Street so that I know how it feels & how it looks like. Of course there was a lot of sales. Everywhere & it’s very long street!
Next, we went to Tower Bridge & cross the bridge. Being on Tower Bridge feels like my trip to London is complete! Hehe. It’s a must right to visit Tower bridge? Hehe.
Me on Tower Bridge, London
That’s all about my trip in London. Thank you to another half that was behave nicely as a travel partner. When you travel with partner, it test you a lot. From here, you will know whether you could be with him/her or not.
Hidup di perantauan jauh dari Malaysia memang macam ini. Nak makan apa-apa yang Malaysian/Asian, kena masak sendiri. Jangan mimpi lah keluar depan rumah ada nasi lemak. Tak payah berharap. Maka di sebabkan tahu kalau tak masak sendiri memang takkan dapat makan; maka dengan rajinnya masak nasi lemak sendiri. Sekarang ni nasi lemak tu hujung jari je. Kehkehkeh.
Masa kat Malaysia dulu tak pernah buat nasi lemak sendiri. Pernah buat pun mummy ada sama. Dengan berdikarinya diri ini kali ni maka terhasil nasi lemak yang memang tip top. Hehe. Bukan sekali dua je tapi dah berpuluh kali buat nasi lemak secara sendiri. Siap bawa bekal pergi office you know!
Bukan setakat tu, kali ni siap buat ayam goreng berempah & jemput kawan-kawan. Diaorang pun suka. Bukan Malaysian friends tapi European friends actually. Pun layan nasi lemak. Resipi ayam berempah adalah resipi google. Main campak je pun rasa ayam berempah.
Sila menjamu mata dengan kepakaran nasi lemak ayam berempah kali ini.
Last time kat Paris we had the chance to try French Crepes. So on 6th June 2014, after balik from Paris, partner was suggesting to go for crepes kat I.P. Pavlova. Actually I tak berapa ingat restaurant ni kat mana tapi memang tak jauh la dari I.P. Pavlova.
Crepes ni tak lah sesedap macam kat Paris itu hari. Dan ini vegetarian salty crepes. Maklum lah kadang-kadang kan perasan Vegetarian. LOL
Selepas beberapa hari balik from Paris, tiba-tiba asyik nak makan burger. Setiap hari pun nak burger. Tak kisahla tak makan nasi pun, burger je yang nak. LOL. Tak tahu kenapa, tapi mungkin sebab masa kat Paris banyak tengok kedai burger best-best sampai terkilan tak dapat try burger sana. Padahal burger bukan typical French food pun kan.
Di sebabkan terlalu nak burger, maka partner bawa la pergi satu kedai burger kat Prague ni kat Římská street. Boleh jalan from Muzeum punya station metro.
Burger dia rasa macam.. OK sorry tak ingat macam mana. But acceptable kiranya.
Enjoy your meal!
After makan burger, I went for ice cream Angelato near Wenceslas Square.
Hello & Hi! I should greet people nicely right? Haven’t update my blog for almost 3 months. And where have I been? What happened to me? Calm down guys. I am still alive, fine, healthy but not wealthy yet. It’s just that I was so busy, really busy, super busy that I don’t have even a minute to touch my blog. Not at all. And now, I will try to catch as fast as I can to update all these things in 3 months.
By the way, I went for holiday in Paris on 21st May 2014 until 24th May 2014. Not so long, just 3 nights there & please be informed that Paris is so expensive!
Anyway, this is our first holiday together. Quite challenging I would say as we are still in the phase of getting to know each other & at that time it’s not even 2 months been together.
I will try my best to update about Paris & I hope I still remember what I’ve been through. Usually I remember what happens during holiday because I am so happy + excited during holiday. I’m glad that I’m sitting near French team in office, so I was asking them a lot about Paris & that’s make my holiday easier. LOL. Of course you have to search by yourself as well actually.
Paris, France.. One of my dream place since I was teenagers. I was dreaming to go with someone special one day. One fine day, my dreams came true. I just couldn’t believe it.
Pont Alexandre III
For the first night we stayed in Avenir Hotel near Montmartre & the nights after that we stayed in Touring Hotel which is the nearest metro station is Cadet. Such a nice hotel!
We’ve been walking a lot around Paris & of course I don’t have energy to upload hundreds of photos here in blog. Of course I will choose the nicest one. That’s the trick!
Paris is huge however it’s nice just to have random walk & of course sometimes you need to rely on map as well. You will see nice old buildings with the touch of typical French concept. I really like it! Yes Europe is about the same with old buildings however there is still something slightly different. So don’t waste your money to take metro. LOL
The landmark of Paris is Eiffel Tower. The first thing people will think about Paris is about it’s romantic city & the Eiffel Tower. Your trip is not complete without visit to Eiffel Tower.
Eiffel, I’m really in Love with this guy
And here I am. It’s really tall & huge. I feel like in a dream seeing Eiffel Tower finally with my own eyes. I am over excited; isn’t it? LOL.
Next; we went to the top of Eiffel Tower. Thank you partner for the gift of this Eiffel Tower trip. Yes, you should go up to the third floor to see the view of Paris city.
View from Eiffel Tower
After that we had dinner around the Eiffel Tower. And we went to the other place for visit. Here we are, Notre Dame de Paris.
The next day, we walked from the Palais Garnier as partner would like to go to Apple Store, Opera. After that we walked to Hard Rock Cafe as it is not really far & next we just walk until we reached The Louvre. We just hang around there as I am not really interested to visit museum. LOL.
We had some stop & rest at Tuileries Garden just in front of Louvre. We continue our walk along the riverside & we had nice Indian lunch near Pompidou Centre.
Again, we just continue our journey & we went to the shopping street with branded & super expensive brands. Some of the things is just out of my mind when I see the price tag. LOL. Who the hell is buying all these stuffs? Lucky you
We also had the chance to try these expensive macarons, Ladurée
Let’s see how romantic the scenery of Eiffel Tower during night. With the lights blinking & so on. You will feel it when you are in front of the tower.
Me & Petr; Nicest man I’ve ever had..
The last day we are in Paris, we went to Sacré-Cœur Basilica. We just walked from the hotel that we were staying as it’s not far at all however this is on top of the hill so you need more energy to climb up.
Goodbye Paris & see you again probably..
Wait for the next coming entry from me
16th May 2014..
Friday routine dinner with the partner as usual..
Venue: Národní Kavárna at Národní Třída
Had some risotto, Grilled salmon & blueberry pancakes

Tuesday, 13th May 2014. Happy Birthday to my bestfriend, Kristina :)
Had a mini celebration with my girlfriends & also my partner. Thank you partner for joining us
We went to Mexican Restaurant – Cantina in Újezd, Prague.
The Girls & The Foods
The portion is quite big however I was really satisfied with this place. SuperB Mexican Foods
Hey hey.. I’m glad that I am part of UK & Ireland team in DHL. Although there is a lot of work, need to communicate with British & Irish which is quite hard to understand their accent in the beginning & consist lots of guys in my team however, I am really happy to be part of the team.
We are busy & we don’t really have the chance to spend time, talk to each other & some of us are sitting far to each other. LOL.
And we decided for the team outing in Klub Blanice which is about 15mins walk from our office.
9th May 2014 – Had fun time with them on Friday evening. Usually on Friday evening I spend time with my partner however sometimes it’s nice to spend time with the team members & do something different. LOL
Here some of us.. They are nice, friendly & I never ever feel awkward when mixing with them
One single weekend ~ 4th May 2014. LOL. As my partner wasn’t in Prague, so that’s why I call it as single weekend.
Was spending time with my good friend, Kristina & she brought me to one new place which is an island on Vltava River, Střelecký Ostrov. We were walking around the island, sitting on bench while having some girls talk with the nice view of around that.
After that, she brought me to one of the French cafe which is Le Carrousel in Národní. We had a very nice pancake with bananas & nutella.
Girls talk is always nice LOL
Craving for Thai foods? Here we go !
Been here in Prague for several months, finally manage to stop by at this place. Actually I always pass by this place since it is exactly at Vyšehrad metro station. But never stop by to have some foods here.
Finally, during my training holiday, 30th April 2014 – Wednesday, was planning to have lunch with partner. We decided to have lunch here.
So I had Pad Thai as I was really craving for it. Quite nice but cannot beat the one that in Thailand. LOL. What do I expect? Thai foods in Europe won’t be the same in Thailand right?
