Cardiff, UK Trip [Part 4]

14 March 2012, Wednesday

Fourth day at Cardiff, and we stayed at the city area since my sister had only classes in the morning and we could spend some time with her after.


Early in the morning mum and I took a walk around the Cardiff Musuem.



The museum was just like any usual museum, with a little bit more interesting things to watch and explore. They were having the "Queen's Photos Exhibition" while were there, which showed a series of photos of Queen Elizabeth throughout her life. Too bad no photos were allowed.

I'm touching the oldest rock in the world!

Say Hi!

UK's Maggie Mee look weird....




Headed back to the hotel for lunch after that, met up with my sister, and we took a walk to Cardiff Castle, which happened to be right in the center of the city.






Once again we were given the audio guide to listen to. Quite a convenient thing that provided enough information for tourists.


The sister!




Only picture of me and mum throughout the whole trip! Behind us is the main castle.

The Royal are wealthy people!


Having a nice sister-sister moment!

Spend this whole day shopping around Cardiff, and spending time with my sister. Most brands are much more cheaper in UK, and their fashion is like two months ahead of Malaysia! Also we had to buy souvenirs!

I bought like a few dresses, some jewelry, and a pair of boots! The boots were like only RM50, such a bargain for good quality! 


Cute stuff everywhere!

Last day at UK!

Sky isn't even bright yet><

Had to wake up early in the morning to get an early bus ride to London. Once again it was a 3-hours trip where our butt never left the seat. It was harder to sleep during the ride, since, well, we just woke up.


Heathrow Aiport, London


 We got stuck here for quite some time, since mum packed the jam we bought in our hand luggage, and we did not know that jam was considered as a liquid item, so we didn't put it separately in the other plastic bag. We had to wait for someone to come look through our luggage and check to see what triggered the alarm.


The security were so strict, I even had to take off my boots and go through it bare footed! Good thing we were three hours early!




Etihad again!

Somehow the trip back home was rather unbearable for me. Could have been the leg space, could have been because I couldn't change our seats to window seats, or just the fact that I wasn't in my pyjamas this time.


By the time we flew pass India I wanted to scream and kick my legs and arms as much as I could. They felt so stiff, and the guy sitting next to me wasn't really a small sized person.


But the food was still great. And I had a lot of sitcoms and US dramas to get me through.


Dinner/Lunch?

Had breakfast sometime around midnight @@

Since we were flying back to Malaysia, and moving through time zones, by the time we got back to Malaysia, despite it being only a 14 hour flight, it was already Saturday evening Malaysia time.



And there we were, back to Malaysia safely. An eight-day trip that was an eye-opening experience. It was great to experience the different weather of another country, and Cardiff was a more greener city with less high building and more parks and plants.


Traveling is fun. =)


The END!

  2. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
