We were in London few weeks ago to make Fahim's Malaysian passport and birth certificate. The weather was good when we started our journey from Stafford. Hubby drove our car to London this time because we weren't intend to sightseeing but just to do his passport. Hubby took two days off and we went to London on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For this time, we stayed at Travelodge Heathrow West Bound (zone 5) because of its easy access from the motorways (highway) and there were also free parking space for the guests. We did love the idea of staying here because after having Fahim, there are lots of things to think about when traveling. Now we have to think about his own luggage, his stuff and toys, his stroller and car seat, and also need to stop for nappy changing and feeding. Hence, traveling by our own car is the best option..so far. :p
We arrived at Travelodge Heathrow around 4pm, and after check in done, we went off to its nearest town to find where the tube station was, as the preparation to get the tube to London city tomorrow morning. We're also bought takeaways 'Dum Chicken and Lamb Beriyani' (forgot the restaurant name) and they're so yummeh! Here you can find lots of halal food around, thus finding halal food was so much easier.
This was his second time sleeping at hotel, and it was not the same when he was 2 months old last time. This time Fahim was a bit playful, curious (nak tawaf and korek2 celah2 headboard katil), and because of his curiousity la susah nak tido. Haish.. But we managed to put him down inside his travel cot (hotel's) in the end.
*takat ni je ai tulis pastu biar berlapok dalam draft. Hoi..apekes? Sudahnya aku lupa, ok2..aku belum nyanyuk jap nak try ingat balik*
On the next morning, we went to Malaysian Immigration Department (London) at Belgrave Square by tube all the way from Heathrow Wesbound station to Green Park. It was very easy to travel this way because no hassle to drive inside the zone 1 and what's more important was that it just took only 1 tube and no need to change from one train to another. And more excitedly, Fahim Zidane was also fascinated by his new ride-on-train experience. See his face..smiling and thrilled perhaps to see new surroundings. We brought his travel system too dan nasib baik 1 tiub je. Kalau kena turun naik tube memang leceh. Kalau naik tube senang carry Fahim dalam carrier sling je. Bolehlah time ni baru bape kilo, daddy pun senyum jek..cer sekarang? Mau patah pinggang!
~There were Changing of The Guards behind. :p
~Encik,ini dokumen saya dah siap isi. Bila boleh siap surat beranak saya?
Alhamdulillah,all the process didn't take too long and everything went well. We even had a good times sightseeing and walking at the Green Park, one of my fav places (and things to do) in London. The Park is big, beautiful, golden and leafy scenery as it was autumn that time. Squirrels were busy hoarding seeds and food for the upcoming winter.
This picture will forever reminds me of funny story. The squirrel actually was standing on the grass few steps from us, and we were sitting on the bench like this..
I was the one who 'suit..suit' whistling to that squirrel. Konon-konon "alolo tupai cute!"..Suddenly the 'cute tupai' went nearer..and nearer to us. Too near untill my hubby and I pon tetiba cuak dan terus bangun sebab tupai tu dah stared macam nak terkam. Seriously, takot!
Nasib baik 'tupai cute' tu blah..He p*ssed off maybe,ahh orang ni panggil tade makanan pon. Y_Y .Not very long after that, we saw two girls have been followed by a squirrel. And they ran away when suddenly the squirrel ran towards them. Hahaha!! Ok,for me that's horror kot.
Amaran: Sila jangan tertipu dengan kecomelan tupaii di mana2 park London.
Yes,it was his first autumn ever.. ahh..miss my botak lil' zidane. He was 5 mos i think. sorry,try hard to recall back.This is backdated entry,remember? -_-'
Yeay..it's my first autumn!
The next morning, after check out, we went to Kak Izu's house. Inilah first time bersua muka dengan blogger Ishamizu. Thanks for inviting us and the nice food too. Seronok dapat jumpa sebab dah lama borak dalam blog je kan..teehee..

Tun Abdul Razak Research Centre ni macam terletak kat kawasan farm yang santek gitu. Best tengok pemandangan. Sayang tak dapat stay lama-lama sebab hari dah makin gelap so kenalah teruskan perjalanan. We arrived home safely around 9pm.
