The school is Forest Fields Primary & Nursery School
Going to school
At school with some friends
Betul ke ni sekolah kat UK, takde anak omputih pun???
Hehehe... believe it. That's forest field area.
Malaysian, Bangla, Paki, Cina, India.. semua ada...
These are some of the nice views at Carsington Water. *Test power camera skillls*
And guess what, Chris was definitely right. Quite positive it's gonna rain! At that time how I wish I'd postponed this to Sunday but it's too late now. Hentam je lah! Hujan pun sekejap je..tapi lebat lah jugak.. Nasib baik ada payung besar! Tent Mazrul+Syam. Dapat lah tumpang berteduh masa hujan hehehe... Mekasih jugak to Black+Su for their green and red gazebos, dapat makanan and tempat BBQ berteduh..
Menyediakan 'payung' sebelum hujan.....
Yang paling seronok? Of course anak-anak ler.. No matter rain or shine.
When the rain stop, we had a walk around the area. The weather was quite cold and windy. Snap more pictures, then back to the picnic site. Perut pun dah lapar balik so makan-makan again. By the time we finished makan, the sun starts to shine again. This time it's for real.. so we lepak2 ala2 sun bathing gitu hehehe...
Me and other half
Finally we left the site around 5pm feeling so tired and smelling like BBQ chicken.....

Ni lah bridge nyer. When we were on the bridge, we can feel it like shaking and moves up and down a bit - maybe to support all weights. At certain times, this bridge will be tilted up to give way to ships to pass by below. On the other end of the bridge, ada Sunday market. NOthing interesting pun. Nak beli sourvenir pun kedai tutup... So jalan2 a bit then balik.
On the way back, we drop by ANGEL OF THE NORTH. Tak tahu lah tempat apa ni, in the middle of nowhere, tapi nice lah untuk ambik gambar. Since adik is asleep, mama had to wait in the car while the rest went to take some picts with the angel...
Nampak tak dua kereta putih tu? The white MPV is ours - that's a Chrysler Voyager and Mercedes putih sebelah tu kereta 2N.
Pictures taken from inside and around the cathederal.
Then we walk to the town, dekat jer. Because it's a bank holiday so kedai semua tutup. So again.. we just posing2 a little bit. Town ni pedestrian safe zone, kereta tak boleh masuk. So the kids are safe to run around. Pictures around Durham town centre...

Mula-mula takut, lama-lama.....
E-fish. Stay still and they will come swimming to you. Once you try to step on them, they swim away...
Bought some souvenir on the way out and then that's it...Still raining when we came out so run quickly into the car. Stomach starts to grumble as it's already 12noon, so we picnic in the car je lah.. makan nasi goreng, and teh O panas.. hehehe... then start the journey again. Gendang gendut tali kecapi, kenyang perut tido mati lah apa lagi, hujan pulak tu! Kesian to driver lah kan??? At last after only 30 mins driving papa surrender, so we stop at one of the service area and everybody ZZZZZZ....The journey continues.. we head off to York Designer Outlet. Actually takde nak shopping apa2 pun, but since its on the way so we all singgah lah sekejap. As usual kat tempat2 shopping ni kalau tak jumpa melayu memang tak sah but to bumped into someone you know is something not always happen but it did! Jumpa Rini Asnida staf FKA UTM with her hubby,baby, mum and dad... She's doing her PhD at Leeds University. Leeds + Nottingham = jumpa kat York!
Finally we're really on the way to Durham. I'm zzzzz now, to be continue lah ekk..

The red bas we took from the park & ride
We park at Madingley Road park & ride and took a bas to Cambridge. The ticket cost £2.20 if you buy from the ticket machine or £2.50 if you buy it straight from the driver (aiyyoo.. itu macam ke? 30p masuk poket driver ke?)
In front of Trinity College
What so special about Cambridge? Nothing.. hehehe.. except it is home of one of the world's premier Universities... well the name speak for itself kan?? There are lots of bridges along River Cam hence how the name Cambridge come from (agaknya lah kot...).
The troop from Nottingham
Punting on the river Cam is one of the most popular attraction in Cambridge.. it is the most popular way (and relaxing too!) to see the famous bridges and colleges along river Cam. So we all pun went punting lah jugak. The tour takes about 45 minutes and lead by a chauffeurs who are also expert punters - they have to lah.. if not tak bergerak lah we all..(and they are probably the most brilliant chauffeurs in the world too cause they study in Cambridge hehehe...).
Punting on River Cam - ala ala kat Venice gitu...
Our hensem tour guide...
One of the college
After punting we jalan-jalan around Cambridge.. because it's Good Friday, there were events held at most of the popular colleges such as the Trinity college and Kings college so visitors were not allowed into college. Frust lah jugak... and then the weather was not on our side too, so we had to hurry.
Back at the park & ride, we had a quick car boot picnic, then drove home in the rain...
The next day we head off to Durham pulak. To be continue.....

Dora and Diego on their way to Gulliver Kingdom theme park. We have to pass this. One theme park per year only!
Interestingly, eventhough this town is small and location wise maybe a bit remote, but there are lots of bikers kat sini.. and not cikai bikers ok..
Tak tau motor apa nie...
Then we went to Heights of Abraham, one of the attraction here. You can either walk up the hill or took the cable car. Obviously it will cost you some £££ for the latter option (mana ada cable car free kan?) but we thought what the heck... this is gonna be our first and last visit anyway! For family of 5 (including Ika nasib baik dia kecik..save sikit) we have to pay £39 (return journey). Each car can fit max of 6 people, so just nice for us!
Gayat lah jugak so apa lagi, look straight ahead jer lah! Duduk diam2 jer. Hehehe.. tu lah dulu marah atuk sebab takut heights masa naik Empire State Building kat NY, sekarang ni mama plak gayat.. hehehe.. tu lah balasan. Ampun abah!
