Since the original plan to find the Malaysian Hall for our prayer and lunch time is not more valid upon leaving London Central Mosque, we just had to find available parking around the area. Putting our trust to the GPS was really annoying sometimes. We ended up in a very small dead-end space and it was really hard to make a u-turn or doing a reverse due to the long nature of the 9-seater...Argghhh
But Finally, berkat kesabaran, we found a parking spot, paid the fee and went for a souvenir hunting. Quite a few shops there. Once we have guaranteed the prices were almost the same, we stopped into one of the lucky shop!!
Outside the first souvenir shop that we went. I bought my sis and her husband a couple T-shirt here. This time, I didn't buy the same thing like t-shirts for everyone in the family. I bought anything that felt appropriate and nicer to each one of them.
Cembam bought a nice london sling bag which we managed to bargain from 20pound to 15pound. And another 2 of my sister-in-laws bought the same thing with different colours. The bag was nicely produced I could say.
Then we just set the GPS towards the castle. But we decided not to stop coz it's damn hard to find a parking. We just drove by, adore the scenery and headed to London Bridge. We didn't even stop for Big Ben. Just took a picture and continued driving.
So these are few pictures I managed to snap while driving or while stopping. Nice english style cityscape.
Fortunately, visitors is allowed to park their cars on the roadside of the bridge opposite the London
It was windy when we stepped out from the car. Xiyad terketar2, gigi berlaga2..hahaha. Quite a nice scenery from the bridge.
Jadi la masuk sekali sekala gambar..hehehe
Then dah puas menikmati pemandangan dari Bridge tu, kami bertolak keluar dari London City untuk ke hotel Travelodge yang dah ditempah oleh Acik. Amek jauh dr London City sebab murah skit.
Dah start jem masa ni...Tapi tak seteruk kat KL la. And kalu salah lane sebab tak pasti dek kerana GPS, tak sesusah KL. Sini, yang penting ko bagi signal. Once ko bagi signal InsyaAllah org blkg akan high beam kejap utk bgtu dia bagi ko laluan.Memang bagus.
Tapi depa strict bila kat roundabout. Sini byk roundabout. Highway panjangggg...nanti ada roundabout. Sebab UK prefer roundabout instead of flyover bertingkat2. So kat roundabout kena duduk lane betul. Kalu ko nk gi kul 12, 2nd exit..dok 2nd lane. Kalau nak ke kanan or kul 9, amek lane ke 3. Kalau lane 2 ko duduk, nk masuk kul 9..depa berenti gak brek tapi kena hon. And aku kena hon sekali je sepanjang drive kat UK sbb aku dok lane ke 2, tapi nak masuk 3rd exit. Waktu lain mmg depa tak hon. Trafik lite ijau, ko tak jalan..depa tak hon beb..
Aku drive malam tu tanpa lampu sebenarnya. Harapnya daylight assist light je. Aku tau aku tak bukak lampu..tapi aku tak tau mana nk ON. dh smpi hotel baru aku kodek2 and tau mana butang nak on kan lampu. Maaf la pengguna jalan London malam tu ye.
Travelodge ni antara hotel utk family yg aku leh rekemen. Selesa dan ruang yang cukup untk 4 orang satu bilik. Depa bagi nescafe sachet, ada cerek/heater disediakan..enough tuala. Rate dia 90pound untuk 2 bilik...
