.

Adik tersepit...

Bungkus... bungkus...

Dah siap...
.
Buat pengunjung setia, nampaknya kami tidak dapat bertemu anda di kota metropolitan ini pada April yg akan datang... kita jumpa di Malaysia sahaja, jika ada ketentuannya... oke??? :D
.
Kalau ada Country Rose yang indah,
Boleh lah display dalam almari,
Kalau ada silap dan salah,
Jangan disimpan di dalam hati.
.
Main badminton dalam gelanggang,
Janganlah smash tepat di dahi,
Kalau ada umur yang panjang,
Boleh lah kita berjumpa lagi.
.
Terima Kasih atas persahabatan yg terjalin, semoga ianya berkekalan walau sudah tidak terlihat di depan mata. Kami doakan semoga Allah kurniakan yang baik-baik sahaja untuk semua yang mengenali kami, juga kepada semua yang sudi mengunjungi blog ini... selamat maju jaya.

Selimut Salji

LA ni masa terasa begitu terhad...banyak beno urusan ni! hehehe... Nak tulis pepanjang pun tak dan... so for the time being... enjoy gambar2 pemandangan yg sempat kami rakamkan semasa turunnya snow bebaru ini... Main tangkap gitu-gitu ja sebab tak profesional. Kamera pun dah lapuk. Lense pun dah tak bleh tutup. Jatuh byk kali. Tapi cukuplah buat kenangan kami nanti. Buka mata jom tengok sesama....
.
Kerusi ini kedinginan menanti montot-montot insani untuk menghangatkannya kembali... hahahaaa.. :D
Ada macam rumah musim sejuk di bukit Cherakah suatu masa dulu dak...??
Sebahagian sungai ini airnya kebekuan... menanti hadir mentari adalah penyiksaannya...
Tasik di tengah Regent's Park ini kaku, melenyapkan kocakan air dipermukaan...
Snow yang menumpang singgah di dedaunan pepohon rotan...
Regent's Mosque... tersergam gah di bumi penjajah...
.
La dah tak snow lagi... suhu pun dan memanjat kembali. Bagusss... tidaklah lagi kami dibaluti kedinginan yang mengacah sum sum tulang....
.
Jumpa Laaagi...

Sudah Main Snow tu, Nanti Demam!

MASA kecik-kecik dulu biasalah sering di marahi emak atau ayah kalau suka sangat bermain hujan lama lama. Dah tu, masuk! ...nanti demam!!! gitu la lebih kurang... tapi aku sehingga hari ini masih belum berkesempatan nak memarahi anak atas sebab musabab yang sama, hehehee... sebab hujan di sini jarang2, dan kalau ada pun memang adik dan kakak akan terperap di rumah.
.
Kakak suka sangat penutup telinga tu... its pink, its my favourite colour, i think we should buy this daddy, katanya masa kat kedai... :D

Adik pula berbeza, tamau pakai snow cap, hat baju sejuk tu pun cukup payah nak suh dia pakai!
.
Dulu masa dok kat kuarters perak hydro dulu, kat bumbung ada pancur yang membawa air hujan ke tepi. Bila dia turun dah jadi macam air terjun. Deras sungguh. Fuhhh memang besss betoi lah mandi bawah pancur dari bumbung tu. Sejuk dan nyaman rasanya bila air tu menghempas ke ubun2 kepala kemudian melencunkan seluruh badan. Kat bahagian belakang rumah ada ruang terbuka, boleh juga mandi air hujan disitu atas lantai bersemen yang membolehkan aku sekali sekala sliding dengan begitu profesional sekali, hehehee.
.
Tmpt pejalan kaki awal-awal lagi sudah ditabur garam untuk mencairkan snow... kalau dak ramai la yg tergolek licin...
Kakak suka no tarik mafla adik... pastu dia kata: Daddy, adik is like a puppy! huhuhuuu... isk.
.
Sekarang ni dah tak macam dulu lagi. Terasa kita semakin fragile kepada perubahan cuaca. La ni payah sikit, mungkin climate change telah menyebabkan air hujan semakin berasid. Baru di siram hujan renyai, kepala dah pusing-pusing rasanya, pening. Atau mungkin antibodi dah tak sekuat dulu. Tahu dak negara maju adalah penyebab utama berlakunya climate change ni tetapi yang mendapat kesan paling teruk adalah penduduk dunia di negara-negara membangun seperti di Asia dan Afrika! Tak adil kan?
.
Mummy posing... belakang tu sungai yang dah membeku...
Lagi sekali... take two, action!
.
Kat London la seperti yang dah korang tau tengah di landa snow. Itu kawasan outer Londonlah yang lebatnya. Di central ni dapat juga sipi-sipi. Ada jugalah mummy bawa adik ngan kakak bergambar time aku keja. So masa hari sabtu lepas, lepas snow dah habis turun dan hampir cair kami pun pergilah ke Hyde Park di kawasan Serpentine mencari saki baki snow yang masih ada. Adik memula merungut sejuk, kakak oke sahaja. Kami siap-siap bawa biskut sebab tahu dalam cuaca yang sejuk begitu perut cepat bernyanyi! heheee...
.
Nyum nyum...
Football time...
.
Bila dah start main baling2 snowball, baru lah adik excited. Sampai dia pula yang lebihnya. Aku tak bawak glove so jari jemari yg mulus ini tersangatlah pedihnya menggenggam snow buat snowball untuk adik. Seronok tengok kakak dan adik berkejar2 dua beradik di situ sambil sesekali mummy dan daddy pun enterprame tak ingat! hahahaaa... Aku rasa kakak paling excited. Ya lah, sekarang ni kakak dah tak pergi ke nursery dia lagi, tu la dia boring dok rumah. Bila dapat keluar begini tentulah dia gembira.
.
Adik dan kakak on the snowball fight... hahahaa...

Main baseball guna snowball... :D
Kakak turn, and adik ready to kick the ball to mummy....
.
Sungai di Serpentine permukaannya beku. Kalau boleh rasa nak jalan sahaja di atasnya. Bila dah beku, aktiviti bersampan pun tak de. Sian burung2 dan itik2 yang sering bercanda dan bermandi manda di sungai itu. Frust mereka menunggu air di Serpentine ni mencair kembali. Peliknya ada juga pakcik tua berjogging dalam sejuk sejuk macam ni dengan hanya memakai seluar short! Fuhhh... power... power.... gila kebal pakcik tu, kena menuntut ni! hehehee...
.
Sungai di Serpentine yang dah beku lapisan atasnya...
Daddy amik seketui nak bawak balik buat Teh O Ais limau.. ahak.

Burung merpati banyak disini sebab ada mat salleh yang bermurah hati kasi makanan...
.
Sebab risau adik dan kakak demam, kitorang pun bergeraklah ke tempat lain pulak. Kakak masa ni dah mula merungut glove dia basah. Mana tak basah, dah pakai glove hat kait tu memang la, huhuhuu... adik ja masih excited lagi.
.
Dan ini gambar keluarga kami... macam tak kenal?? hahahaa.
.
Bila balik rumah dah boring semula. Tapi nasib masa pi kedai sukan haritu terdapat alatan mainan untuk musim summer yang di jual murah. Apa lagi, kami pun sebat lah roller blade untuk adik ngan kakak sorang satu.
.
Aktiviti terkini 2 beradik ni...
Kakak cepat dapat... adik susah nak balance!
.
Sapa nak roller blading time sejuk2 ni kan? Ahhh... lantak lah, pepandailah cari tempat nak berroller blading. Last last sekali roller blade dlm rumah saja lah... hehehee... lawak tengok adik dan kakak yang sungguh bersemangat. Sebenarnya dah bertahun2 aku yang nak try roller blading ni, tapi tak penah nak beli2. Kalau reti roller blading ni agaknya mesti boleh ice skating kan? Ye lah kot...
.
Sian adik asyik tergolek, hahahaaa...
Adik punya knee guard satu dia salah kasi, resit pulak dah buang so x bleh nak mintak ganti, huhuuu...
.
Tu lah dia nya. Ini lah aktiviti paling bes 2 beradik ni buat masa ni sementara menunggu cuaca kembali panas atau paling tidak pun suam suam kuku. So itu lah dia nya. Uik, panjang pulak entry-entry kali ni. Mood menulis aku dah mai semula ka? Sebelum melalut lebih lagi, baik aku stop dulu. Simpan sikit untuk lain kali, hahahaa...
.

So kita jumpa lagi...

Bye bye 2009, Welcome 2010

CHRISTMAS day itself was quite depressing. Zero public transport, shops were closed, theme parks were not operating, winter wonderland was shut. London was quiet and deserted. What more with the cold weather and the expected white Christmas at some parts of England ~ the one that they had been dreaming for more than ten years or so... some might find it fascinating and some were gutted since the snow had snapped their gas supply thus instead of enjoying the white christmas, they have to cuddle among each other to generate heat. Unfortunately Santa Claus did not send them portable heaters as their Christmas gifts, but lucky enough the government did! huhuuu...
.

Strolling at Green Park on Christmas day...

... lengang!
.
Sadly there was also an incident where a man died outside of his own house because he lost his key. I bet he must have consumed too much alcohol that flushed his brain down to the drain. He was still young, 35 years old. How stupid could he be to just stay outside his house overnight knowing that the cold weather would surely cut his skin like knife? He was found dead by his neighbour the very next morning. Should he was sober, he would have thought wisely and find himself a shelter.That is one of the many reasons why you are not allowed to drink alcohol, my friend, Huh... Take this as a reminder, occay!

.

Mana la 2 beradik nak pegi???

Tunggu bas...

Ooo... window shopping kat Harrods ropenyer...
.
And the Chistmas finally over, what came next was a boxing day. There were so... so many people (especially those with thick pockets) rushed to the famous designers outlets, queuing as early as 6-7 oclock in the morning (although the shops will only open at 9 or 10am) just to grab handbags, shoes, watches or what ever it is in their best interest for the biggest discounted sale prices. Was it worth it to battle the cold weather while queuing right in front of the outlet that early in the morning? I dont know, ask them. All these years we have been lulled by the enticing stories on how all the shops would generously slash their prices for only this one particular day, havent we?? mmm.... lets see.
.

Christmas tree at Swindon...

My 2 angles...
.
So after 4 years of refusal to get squeeze and squash by the crowd, we finally decided to go out early (our early is like 9 am!) on boxing day to Bicester Village... and oh wow, we found that the queues at certain famous outlet like Gucci and Burberry were already like rainbows, from one horizon end to the other... ops, I'm exaggerating, hahaaa... but yes they were long, a really-really long Q... but STILL we joined them for the sake of experiencing the boxing day spree, and after more than one hour queuing, when we finally allowed to get into the store, we were disappointed! The goods' prices were exactly like what we had discovered a week before Christmas! So where are the extra discounted prices? Therefore we felt that we have wasted our time queuing, boxing day is not a boxing day at all! Not for us. :(
.


See the Q??? Crazy!

More people at Bicester village...
.
But it was all right, we took it as our weekly outing, just to bring the kids and to let them enjoy the playground at the Village, the place where they normally forget how cold the temperature was. I bet Kakak and Adik could spend their time for hours ~ sliding, riding the sheep replica, jumping on the bla bla (i dont know what they call that), and running up and down the wooden bridges ~ if we did not call for a stop. It was a nice outing though, really. We met a lot of our fellow Malaysians, be it those who work and reside in England or those who came just for the purpose of visiting and holidaying. We saw many smiling faces that explained their overwhelming satisfaction ~ surely for getting what they have been eying for... but there were also one or two that pouting, and we would definitely be in the same boat of the latter! hahahaa...
.

The only playground at the village... kakak and adik could spend hours in this area should we not call for a stop!

Yeay... orang kita!
.
After boxing day, what is next? yeahhhh, New Year 2010... however, like other previous new years we did not celebrate it although there was an earlier intention to join the crowd to see the new year's fireworks. London Bridge and Westminster are the famous new year celebration spots. Instead we just spend our nite at our nice and warm living room and comforted our lazy butts on the 3 seater cozy sofa and watched some tv programme. Cant remember what it was. Once in a while adik and kakak would shout in excitement: whats that??? ~ everytime they heard the cracking sound in the sky. Unfortunately the beautiful splashing fireworks were not within our visual spectrum. Lucky there was utube that i can show adik and kakak what it was like. :D
.

Oxford Street...

Depan Selfridges...

Makan fries...
.
December and January will always come to us with birthday celebrations. Earlier was kakak's, and now its mummy's. No party, no balloons, just a simple homemade cake baked by the pretty birthday girl herself... with some effort from kakak that gave a simple yet beautiful decoration on the cake with colourful sprinkle. The final touch was to use and stick the recycle candles that lighted up brightly our dim living room. Then the birthday song was up in the air sang by one handsome young prince, ahak, and echoed by two adorable angles... That was all. Yet we hope that has made a memorable event for mummy and may all mummy's dreams and wishes would come true. We love you mummy and may Allah will always help and guide us in our daily life. And may successes and many happy returns would be bestowed upon you and our family here and hereafter. Insya Allah.
.

Adik kagum tengok lilin yg banyak... :D

Kakak happily sang birthday song for mummy...
.
And this week in early January 2010 snow comes again. Distrupted most of the public transport and warning was telecast across the country to only travel when vital. Schools were closed, and some use this extreme cold weather as an excuse not to go to work, brilliant! ... and London was gloomy again. Not many activities can take place and most would just be hibernating instead, hahaaa... but it did not effect our mood since we are truely and excitedly looking forward for a better and brighter 2010, insyaAllah...
.

Let it snow, let it snow...

Snow rahmat...
.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to wish a happy new year, and may 2010 be a year of prosperity and loads of happy returns... and this prayers are meant, just like what micheal jackson once cried for... for you and for me and for the entire human race! Tu dia....
.
Amiin...
