Honeymoon Part III - London

Read about Part I and II of our honeymoon here and here.

When we checked into our hotel, Ramada Encore, they had decorated our room with rose petals and swan-shaped towels! Comel gila! Ahhh the perks of being honeymooners... hehehe.

Our pre-decorated room in London

The hotel we stayed in was modern and decent, because in London most accommodation is expensive and the buildings are old.. the nearer to central London, the older and more expensive it is. So we stayed jauh sikit, in Zone 2. Tapi it was alright, coz the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the tube station and it takes 20 minutes to get to central London.

Some pics of our hotel:

Bathroom. Very basic, nothing fancy.

We did most of the touristy things in London. Tak sempat buat banyak bende, sebab limited days je and it was raining most of the time and it got dark quite early. I wanted to take a hop-on, hop-off bus tour macam we did in Barcelona but since it was raining all the time, we couldn't do that either.

Walking up and down Oxford Street

Famous red telephone booth & Big Ben

Trafalgar Square

We also went to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. This is where you go if you nak berangan ambik gambar with celebrities and famous people. Dead celebrities also can.. haha. Kita beratur dekat 2 jam ok just for tickets, SANGAT ramai orang. Bila dah masuk dalam pun, beratur lagi nak tengok the figures.. because it's just too crowded. 

The section that features the Twilight cast and Justin Bieber was the MOST crowded so we avoided that altogether. All the teenage girls were taking 100 different poses with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner -_-

Your Abah ni pulak ambik kesempatan pegang2 pinggang Beyonce la, Christina Aguilera lah... amboiii kemain.. nasib baik patung!

But for me... the highlight of London was going to the Emirates Stadium!! I watched the Arsenal v QPR game on the 27 October (Arsenal menang 1-0 yay!). We couldn't get tickets for your Abah sebab dah sold out atau terlalu mahal, so him being the sweetheart that he is, waited 3 hours for me! :') We also went on the Emirates Stadium Tour!

Outside the stadium

Players' changing room & the pitch

Menggila shopping inside the Armoury

So that concludes the highlights of our honeymoon.. travelling with your Abah is simply the best, he is good at directions and he is patient with me, but he's always punctual and on time which kadang2 buat I stress haha but it's a good thing. (: I will never forget this trip Inshallah, it was a dream come true for the both of us.

Now we can't wait to concentrate on expanding our family! ;)
