Nope.. it's not Malaysia.. it's Doha yet again! .. we've always talk about going back to Doha, live a happy life and maybe even grow old there.. (like they gonna allow it?! haha). And.. err.. sorry folks to dissapoint you on your 'hope' for adik Myra! thee hee hee..
And I can't actually believe that it's happening so fast.. in a month time! (at least for Aizal that is). I didn't even go for fruit picking yet! huwaaaa!!!
But there's a tiny bit of a hiccups, going there would mean, i have to give up my so-called career and dedicate meself on house chores, etc2? I'm sure I'll go crazy sitting around the house, talking to my german toddler, but ain't it cute?! Isn't it any mother's dream? To ALWAYS be there for her little one? To always be the one who feed 'em, bathe 'em, soothe 'em.. and teach 'em many many wisdoms??! (haha). I could choose to work, obviously.. but after my last experience with the 'personal assistant', I quite hate it, and NOT and COULDN't even consider it again, EVER! Orang lain cakap senang.. there's your mother, or your Ibu.. they could help surely? of coz they would.. but i don't want to! it's their turn to rest now.. and there are nursery and stuff.. yup.. THAT, would be a better option, but not now.. now is MY time with her, now is MY time to give it all out..is it too much to ask? hee.. ape aku merepek da...
On the other hands, Should I stay or should I go to Malaysia until my beloved hubby settled-in with his RP? There are plenty of things that I wanna do while 'holiday-ing' in London.. and so far, I've strike 6 out of 10.. My greedy self said stay, so I can finished it all, but my other half said go to Malaysia, it'll be less stressful with all your family around (is it?).. hurm..

After only few snap of the building, we head toward Wenceslas Square, which actually the first place we went to when we first arrive Prague in hope to find 'Hallal Fast Food restaurant' yang die gembar-gemburkan. But pusing punye pusing, tak jumpe jugak.. From the direction that I got from the internet, it says turn left, but according to Dr K, turn right, and he himself said Czech people usually gave the wrong direction between right & left, which they often easily get confused.. hehe klaka gak fact ni, but anyway, memang takde rezeki nak try that halal restaurant.. blasah makan ape yang ade jela..
So, that's that.. our journey was over, we said goodbye to Prague..and head off home to London with yet another bag of sweet memories.

But after breakfast, the sky starts to clear out.. no more snow, just some dripping rain which has taken away most of the white scenery. Alhamdulillah.. so we then proceed with our second day itinerary, to go to Prague Castle area, and walking down to Mala Strana or Lesser Town.
Today is a bit struggling, we had been on and off from one tram to another, but couldn’t get to number 22 nor 23 (which is the most popular tram number that’ll take you to most of the must-see tourist spot. But.. it’s ok.. no biggy.. an extra walk would just be another mini-exercise to release all the tense in our body. ;)
When we finally reached the Prague Castle area, tengah sedap snap snap photo came an unfamiliar voice from behind us, in Malay! Gosh.. ade jugak orang melayu kat sini.. hehehe.. He turns out to be a medic student there for the past 3 years, and was out and about with his girlfriend (also a medic student there, and apparently best student in their Uni, salute salute!) and his girlfriend’s parents who came for their 3rd annual visit to Prague. They were very friendly, and mostly enjoy the company of lil Myra.. Myra lagiiila suke kalau ade orang layan.
Nak dipendekkan cerite, this kind Dr (who by the way speaks Czech AND German), invited us to join them for the tour, so he can help to show us around! We were really moved by his kind gesture, so decided to follow. As we walk down the hill side towards Mala Strana, the Dr girlfriend’s mother then scream ‘Apple Strudels!!! Let’s eat!’. So that’s how we ended up joining them for a nice hot creamy chocolada drink with freshly baked Apple Strudels –said to be a must try in Czech and some other surrounding Europe country as their specialties.. which is not even close to the so-called apple studels kat KL Central (as she put it). I’m not that into food-critics sort-of-thing, so blasah je.. sedap tak sedap blakang crite. After 2 hours of chit chatting and makan-makaning, the Uncle offer to pay. Siap nak blanjer tuu.. dah la baru je kenal, siap ajak jalan skali.. hmmm.. segannye! You see, good kind-hearted people does exist, and we are among those who are lucky enough to have meet not one, but four of them- all warm and kind and some more down-to-earth. An experience, that we will live to tell.
Some shots that I took while jay-walking on Charles Bridge
Coming out of the restaurant, the girlfriend and his parents need to part ways, they are heading to their hotel to get ready for their dinner. But dengan baik hatinye the Dr still insist of showing us around. So, jalan la kiteorang crossing Charles Bridges, where we could find lots of stalls selling arts, performer and the mesmerizing view of the Vltava river. Sampai letih dah nak ambek gambar.. memang cantekla Prague ni.. Sirius!
On our way to Dancing House, tibe-tibe hujan batu turun then tukar jadi hujan lebat... so, sebab kesian dah kat Dr tu.. yang tak pasal-pasal lak kene basah lencun, I said we think this is enough for the day, we’ll catch Dancing house tomorrow.. hoping for a better weather.
So.. that’s some of the highlights of Day 2, meeting a new friend out of the blue while enjoying the spectacular view (minus the rain of coz)..
To be continue…
It was a last minute plan, we’ve been contemplating between several destination, but we are dead broke.. and yet is desperately in need of a break. After few considerations of places to go to,.. Prague comes as the cheapest one.. (amazing huh?)
We flew first class.. (wait.. that’s not right..), we flew with easyjet, a low cost airline just like airasia.. The journey was amazingly smooth, with an experience captain that kept entertaining us with his ‘magical endeavour’. So, kalau2 sape2 yang teringin to explore Europe, on a cheaper budget like us, try easyjet.. it is in deed easy, cheap but remarkably convenient and clean (note: avoid ryanair! hehe)
Arriving in Prague to a sunny bright city, we had a smile, bigger than the plane, even for Myra (no kidding). Since we are under a really really tight budget, we’ve decided to use the public transport to the hotel, which surprisingly easy, despite all label and announcement made in Czech. For the whole trip, we took 3 days pass that cost us 330 Kc= 11pound, lebih kurang laa.. And the best part is, you validate the pass once when you board your bus from the airport, then just walk like donno throughout your journey with tram/metro or bus all over the city for the whole 3 days. Mmg best.. dieorg percaye je kat rakyat jelate.. takde nak bubuh gate2 like in tube, or lrt.. so men boarding je la.. ikut naseb, kalau kene tahan, takde tiket kne la bayar saman.. And another great thing that I like about their transportation is, it is so spacious, and very stroller-friendly. Bleh taruk 10 prams.. and you won’t have a problem.. unlike here :(
From the cheap cost of our hotel, I thought it’s gonna be horror-like room in some unknown neighbourhood where gangsta are running around with guns. But I was wrong yet again. The hotel apartment is clean, big and tidy. We were given 1 small apartment, complete with a separate living room, double bed and separate shower and private loo, and the surrounding was not too bad at all.. easily accessible by the tram system. Not bad for a 15pound a nite stay.. Fyuohh..lege
So, day 1 was not so hard after all, Prague had exceeded my expectation from many angle; from its public transportation to the accommodation, and to its beautiful magnifico buildings and scenery all across town. I’m in love…
Up: Charles Bridge at nite
Left: Prague Castle, Right: Some interesting statue
Later that night, we brave ourselves to go to Karlův most or Charles Bridge area where people been suggesting to go to, to capture some amazing shots of the bridge at nite. From the bridge foot area it is just 5 minutes walk to Staroměstské náměstí or the Old Town Square, where more beautiful well-plan buildings are standing next to each other, including the most talk-about Prague Orloj or Astronomical clock tower.

It has been sunny and clear these past 2 days. I hope it stays like this for another 3.. please please.. let London stay 'normal' as it is.. just so we can go and have our break.. ;)
A selfish wish.. I know. But I'm so looking forward for tomorrow. Have been too stressful at work, need to release all the toxins tots n all, so I can come back with a big fat smile and with a happy-clean mind to start work yet again.
But look at the weather forecast.. how weird it is that a cloudy monday followed by a heavy snow Tuesday then Sunny shine Wednesday!!! hurm.. maybe I should pay more attention to global warming issue now. **sigh**
