Half-Term Break: The Ice Rink at Natural History Museum

Assalamualaikum


When the girls saw the ice rink and other kids skating at Natural History museum, they got excited and completely forgot about going to Hyde Park. They instantly begged me to go for skating..Oh not again..and it was impossible girls! Kesian..but they did not have any skating experience..so it's a big no. But after they watched a few kids and adults fell off onto the ice they stopped begging me. Hehe..


The day was beautiful! It was pretty bright and sunny hence the place was crowded since it was school holiday. Due to the warm weather, the ice quickly melted and the rink was quite slippery so it's quite challenging for the skaters. Nonetheless, the number of skaters increased towards the evening and the place was happening!


For the tickets if i'm not mistaken, it was GBP8 for each child and GBP13 for each adult and can be bought at the ticket counter nearby. The price is still considered cheap at the moment because usually the price will go up during Christmas and Chrismas school holiday like in previous year. 


We just enjoyed watching other people skating. The girls still had fun though they did not have a chance to skate. Happy aje, dan seronok tengok the staffs skating while showing some ballerina skills. Had a good time indeed. Good girls, mummy love you two! ;)


Later, i'd treated them both a ride on a marry-go-around for being sporting. They both were thrilled! Hehe. Luckily, Zafri felt asleep! Sebab dia tak cukup tinggi, ketidak sure mengamuk nak naik jugak ikut Along and Angah huhu. 

Actually, children who are below the specifiied height could still go on a marry go around but must be accompanied by their parents. But in my case, nobody can keep an eye on our belongings if i had to joined in..tak pelah Zafri maybe next time plak..;))


Anyway the girls had fun riding on a marry-go-around. They moved so fast! It was hard to take their picture without being blurred. Haha. Anyway, I'd enjoyed taking their pictures and others. The picture below was my favourite! i just simply loved the clear blue sky and the magnificent building of Natural History museum. I miss both already..:'( (now the weather is already cold, dull and gloomy. Sejuk, brrr..!!)



We stayed there until Zafri awaked and Babah finished his work. Babah and Zafri also enjoyed the crowds. After having some chips and juice, we took bus to go to Bayswater to eat and pray at Malaysian Hall canteen. Afterwards we managed strolling at Kensington Gardens and played at Princess Diana Memorial Park until it closed.



Phewww, all have done in a day! It's so tiring but always satisfying..we really enjoyed ourselves..the most important thing that my kids were happy. Alhamdulillah. :)

Half-Term Break: V & A Museum

Assalamualaikum

Finally, we minus Babah managed to visit Victoria & Albert museum during half-term break last week. Babah did not joined us as he got to finish his experiment at the lab..poor Babah. Hopefully, Babah will finish it soon. Amin...!

Like other museums such as Natural History and British Science museum, V & A museum's admission is also free. Best, kan! So we did not want to miss visiting it.

At the entrance, we were given a pamphlete about children current activity held in the museum. There were quite number of activities that were interesting to join in.

First we decided to watch a children theatre as we have never experienced it before. It was only 25 minutes performance but it was more than enough. Kids cepat boring, kan? Almost at the end ramai dah main naik turun tangga theatre hall tu including my kids :D but the theatre was not bad at all. The performer pandai attract the kids' attention and made them participated as well ;)

After the theatre, we thought to have a lunch at a cafe inside the museum but we'd found the lunch hall on the way down to the cafe! So apalagi, buka bekallah weols. Jimat..hihihi. Mummy sempat solat zuhur lagi kt situ..alhamdulillah.

After lunchie, we visited the art and jewellery gallery but it's not too long. Zafri dah boring, ngantuk and start merengek tak nak duduk dalam stroller. Uncontrollable for me..so i decided to make a move and that's end of our museum tour that day.

In conclusion, V & A museum is the least attractive museum for kids. The art painting was too high for kids to see and the bare-naked scultures were too much for them. Zahin said the place was haunting, tu diaa. Dia dah la memang penakut macam mummy haha..so tak sesuai!

For adults, there are many to be seen and digested in this museum. Kene amik masa juga. Too bad i did not have a chance to see the royal bridal wedding dress and Islamic section. Huhu maybe next time with Babah plak or when the kids get older..in shaa Allah kalau ada rezeki dan panjang umur. Amin..! :))

Next, we planned to go to Hyde Park but we skipped it as soon as we saw the ice rink at Natural History Museum's compound. Wee! The girls squealed in delight and begged me to go there hihi.

Ok Will share about it in the next post..in shaa Allah.

Autumn 2014

Assalamualaikum

Autumn has been good so far. The view and surroundings are beautiful, masya Allah. The leaves already turned into a golden colour and scattered on the ground..subhanallah

It's a school holiday now. We spent most of the time at home while Babah has been busy at the lab. But two days ago, after Babah came back we all went to Victoria Park as it was sunny. So we did not want to miss it

The park looked so gorgeous with shades of colours hence we took pictures. Kids were also happily running and crunching on the leaves. What a precious moment..we're gonna miss Autumn soon

Lastly, hope you enjoy the pictures! :)




Ps. i had undergone a surgical management (lbh krg DnC) to remove tissue in my womb due to miscarriage thursday last week. According to doc, it's a short and safe surgery if there's no complication.

it would be just around 15 minutes and I'll be awaked after half an hour BUT I only woke up after 4 hours! Allahu Akbar...i lost words as soon as i looked at my watch. I hope it's taken as Kifarah for all the sins i've done before. Huhu Only Allah knows how thankful i am to be alived..*cry*

Salam Maal Hijrah 1436. May this new year brings goodness, happiness and success to all of us. Amin..

Weekend Getaway

Assalamualaikum

First of all thank you who have kindly wished, prayed and motivated me. I'm feeling much healthier physically and emotionally than before. I am truly touched with your kindness and I really appreciate all. May Allah bless you always dearies.:')

Anyway, our dearest Iris had requested to go on caravan holiday again before going back to Malaysia for good. So Babah had booked one for us at Ashcroft Coast Holiday Park in Kent last month through The Sun Holiday. ;)

Since Kent is just an hour away driving from London, we proceed with the plan as we promised the kids though I'm supposed to confine myself..

But for the sake of kids, we glad we made it. And i think it was much needed for me too. I longed for vacation :D

Most of the time i stayed inside the caravan while hubby took kids out to the indoor swimming pool, shop and playground even though it was raining. The kids had so much fun! :))

As for our caravan, all looked new except there was no TV hehe but we survived as we brought laptop! ;) And we slept in the living area because there was no heater as well in the room! ( not installed yet perhaps) but that's no a biggie.

The heater at the living area was functioning and we brought extra duvet too. It warm enough especially for me. Sapu minyak herbanika panas (NR), urut2 sket bg keluar angin, pakai socks and sweater dok dlm duvet. Tido, Heaven! :D

Finally, thank you so much Babah for this weekend getaway and who did almost everything from cooking, washing and cleaning up. You're the best, we love you so much! :x

Alhamdulillah...:)

Miscarriaged :'(

Assalamualaikum. Salam Jumaat..

I was surprised to know that i was pregnant again last month. It is a blessing and rezeki from Allah indeed. We were so happy and excited for the fourth child but it's only for a while..

Unfortunately I started bleeding last week on tuesday. I was worried but then assumed it's normal because i had placenta praevia during my 2nd pregnancy or maybe i was too active. I ran, i carried up Zafri, etc. i forgot that i was pregnant! :(

But on sunday night i had a bad bad cramp like a contraction below and i slept in pain then was bleeding badly with blood clot discharge at 4am. I was panic! I told the other half and he worried too.

so on monday morning we went to GP and the doctor straightly referred me to Queens hospital. Uh oh i could feel something was not right but i gathered myself back try to relax, be patient and redha on what will i found out soon.

The doctors did internal scan first and they said most probably i had miscarriaged. I was speechless..Then i was asked to come again two days later which was last wednesday to confirm it's misscarriage. And sadly yes i had miscarriaged at 8 weeks 5 days..:'(

I was frustrated, crushed and cried inside. Rupanya tak ada rezeki lagi nak dapat baby baru..sobs.

"Allah does not burden a soul beyond more than it can bear (2:286)"

It's true. And Allah knows best. We plan but His plan is above all.

All of us including our kids were sad over the loss..not saying that i already started shopping baby apparels since we are still here in London..sobs.

Sincerely, I was phobia to pregnant again after my third delivery experience but now with the miscarriage my phobia is getting worse..:(:(

Sorry Abang, i've tried my best even though i know you will never blame on me..and you just calmly accept His Qada' and Qadar. I love you more..

Ya Allah, ampuni dosa-dosaku. Amin..! :'(
