Happy Birthday Zahin!


Alhamdulillah, today is along Zahin's big day. She turns 8 years old already..what a big girl! ^_^ Since mommy and babah had things come up today, we didn't go celebrate. After all it's on a weekday and along Zahin has to go to school.

Talking about school, yes along Zahin already got a place at a new school, Mayville Primary School.  ;) Alhamdulillah again. She just started last monday. I wish you have a lovely time though it might only be until November.

Anyway, when mommy asked whether she want to celebrate her birthday with her new friends or not, she quickly say no and said she didn't want to tell it's her birthday today. But mommy knows actually she's still shy. Hihi.

Along Zahin was in her new uniform on her first day at Mayville Primary School. Angah amik aura dulu ye..:D

Along Zahin and adik Zafri at the playground just nearby the school. Along Zahin good at consoling her baby brother now..hopefully, she will be a good sister forever..amin!

Actually, we've already celebrated along Zahin's birthday as earlier as last saturday..hihi. Coincidently, a friend also wanted to celebrate her daughter's birthday as we joined it's a double celebration.. Yeay! ^_^

Since it was kinda adhoc for us, we just went to Cake Box to buy a birthday cake. That means we didn't get a chance to customized the cake. 

But luckily, there was a Frozen cake left and after gave some thinking i decided to buy it anyway..because the lil sister, Iris really insisted to buy the Frozen cake for her big sister's birthday..she almost made a scene at the cake shop..haih sabo je la hihi..

The birthday girls, Zahin and Nuha. Nuha turned 4 years old last saturday. Happy birthday you two! May Allah bless you always! amin..:)

Tadaaaa, Elsa and Anna Frozen cake. Not only it's 'Frozen' but it was yummilicious!! Credit to angah Iris, thank you dear, such a nice and sweet sister you you wanted to give the best for your Along. :))

As a die hard fan of My Little Pony, along Zahin just asked for this for her birthday gift. RAINBOW DASH!! hihi along, already had the smaller one before.  How i wished you should have asked something else you know but anyway, it's your birthday, so you can pick anything that you wish. ;)

As always, Mommy, Babah, Angah and Adik love you so much, along Zahin though you're not as easy to handle (manja sgt) hihi. We will always be praying for you every second and every breath wherever you are.. Be a good and solehah girl, shaa Allah. 

Last but not least, may you grow wisely, beautifully (esp on akhlak ;)) and successfully in this world and hereafter. We shall try our best to shower you with all the best, love and happiness and guide you to the right shaa Allah. May Allah bless you always, my dear! Mmuahhh. :)

Mommy :x

Hampton Court Palace, London


Recently a good friend kindly gave us his company corporate season pass which includes five free tickets to Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and the Banquet House. How lovely!

The admission fee per person for all the places is quite pricey actually, so we were over the moon and kindly accepted the offer! ^^ (Jazakumullah Bro S and his wife, Sis I :))

It's hard to decide when all of the above are in the wishlist but finally we decided to visit Hampton Court Palace! Heheh.

The palace is located in West London and we headed there by car on last saturday. And the weather was good too!

Our free tickets ;)

Can't wait to tour the palace!

just outside of King Henry Viii's kitchen :)

bumped into one of the royal highness (i guess! :P)

lucky enough to try on the cloaks of the Tudors and it's free of charge as well...;)

the girls were listening to the audio and they really enjoyed the tour :)

a brutal mamarazi :P hihi

The Tudors cooking..;)

Lastly, indeed the 'Rezeki' comes when you have least expected it. Alhamdulillah..

Kensington Gardens


It has been already few times we took kids to Kensington Gardens. Reason being, it is the nearest park within walking distance from Imperial College London and also Bayswater. Not only the kids love going there,  but we adults love it too. :D

So from the previous post, after taking pictures at Royal Albert Hall, me and Zafri crossed the busy road towards Queen's Gate, Kensington Gardens. But worry not, we only crossed when the traffic light turn green for pedestrian. ;D

Queen's Gate, Kensington Gardens. 

Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens from afar

Yay, i'm free now 

A nice cafe to eat sandwich and have a drink for a short break
It was such a big relief for me when entering the park. It was much more peaceful. Hehe. And i quickly released Zafri from his stroller because i knew it was already safe for him to walk and run around the area. And FYI, actually cycling is not allowed in the park for safety reason. So thoughtful, right? 

Hi i'm here, Doggie! :P

I wanna dance on the grass, Mommy..:P

Can we go there, Mommy? :)

Kensington Gardens at the end of Winter..most of trees were still leafless..but the view was still beautiful, subhanallah. :)

Come quickly, mommy..:P

Kensington Palace ;)

My dream came true when i saw Kensington Palace in front of my eyes. If we were lucky, we might bump into Kate Middleton and Prince George. :P 

But in my dreams only! hehe. Since there are benches provided along the path so i thought to rest our feet for a while. But my active boy would not let me, he wanted to have a walk again. Tsk! 

Amik gambar dulu

friendly girl vs anti-social boy :P

Let's go mommy

Ok, take my picture now :D

Welcome to Kensington Palace, mommy . Ngeee...Lol

the back of the palace

visitor's entrance
At first, i thought to visit Kensington Palace and entered from the visitor's entrance with other visitors. But then Zafri ran off and went outside the palace. So i just gave in, i was sure that he would be boring inside and i would not enjoyed touring the palace if he got cranky and made a scene. So i kinda missed it. Well, maybe next shaa Allah. :)

sedapnya dia lepak kt luar ni

Kensington Palace front

the compound of the palace is so neat and well-kept :)
Kensington Palace is the former home of  late Princess Diana and now is a royal residence of  Prince Willian and Kate Middleton as well as Prince George ;)

A Statue of Queen Victoria

Round Pound in front of Kensington Palace. :)
One more place in Kensington Gardens that i always wanted to go and see was Round Pound. But unfortunately the fence was built around it, a little bit frustrated there but there must be a reason behind it like a safety issue so i tried to chill back. :P 

Since by that time we were already hungry so we took out our snack like chocolates and juice and that's enough to give us some energy before taking a proper lunch. :)

Anyway, we went near to the fence to take pictures of the birds and ducks in the pond and on the ground. They were so many of them and they were gorgeous. :)

Hello Gorgeous!

Pretty birds 

my happy boy!
happy and good mood sampai tolong tolak stroller seniri. hehe

so lively and so lovely

Daffodils starting to bloom is a sign that Spring will be arrived soon. .wonderful!! ^^

That's all for now. Wassalam...
