Europe Tour....

So... I am home after a 21days tour in Europe.We made up a group of 8 from Malaysia and met up with two more in London so it's 10 of us. Spend some time in London, and join 12days Europe tour together with others tourist, altogether we had 47 traveling in a bus with a tour guide and a bus driver  It was wonderful to meet people in all walks of life getting together and making the best out of it.  21 days to London, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Holland, Austria and Belgium, it's really tiring, morning call at 6am, only back to the hotel around dinner time  at 7.30pm, some days..were follow up with drinking session till the wee hr, tired right?  But fun....when international people get together.

Touch down Headthrow airport London on 1/6/12 at 8.30am, when for breakfast somewhere in London because our service apartment was not ready till 11am. With our baggage we went to the underground train station(metro) to our apartment which is  in Chinatown Soho after much finding and asking around we finally found out apartment it's a 3 storey apartment and I was located to the highest floor(faint), with the help of my room mate we manage to bring our baggage up. No regret though, because we had beautiful view and a big bathroom.
We were be in London for 3days.  So my first day in London...."London Eye, River Cruise, Tower Bridge and Oxford Street II",

  and 2nd day day was the wax museum of' ' Madame Tussand' took photo with the rich and famous, hahaha...  and did some shopping which some of our other members was crazy about especially "Branded Good"
3rd day, went to 'Royale Park' to celebrate the Queen's 25 Diamond Jubilee, didn't wait to see the Queen's wave because I'll be meeting my 2 cousins.

It's a must meeting up with my 2 cousins Liza and family, Ross and partner whom I have not seen for quite a long time especially Ross, think it's almost 20yrs ago the last I saw her. Had lunch and walking around in Soho Chinatown, it was really nice to meet up after such a long time.

We left London for Scotland Edinburgh by train.  my first sight of Edinburgh was breath was so beautiful fairytale like, beautiful bridges with castle everywhere it's so ancient glad I am there really no regrets.  Another high floor to our apartment, this time I only had my backpack with me so it's not so bad all most immediately after check in, we went for coffee down stair. A day tour for Edinburgh start the next day, we were introduce to many castle and university of Scotland, after the tour we are on our way to Glasgow another city of Scotland on our own. Will be here for a day only, so did nothing much except shopping again, and I must said there is a shoe shop sell 'flipflop' at a very good discount, I too bought some..... hehehe.
Back to London for 2night before we join the Europe tour, but before that we when to 'Blister Village' a brands' outlet, here... some of our group members when crazy,  I am not so interested in Branded stuff la, maybe to me it's just too expensive and I think it's not necessary, since I am there I might as well buy something affordable for myself so I bought a Bur berry overnight bag, not too expensive compare to those Parada, Channel, Gucci and so on, I am happy and I think it's really nice and practical. Everybody was smiling when we left the outlet.
And our Europe tour bus will pick us up after breakfast the next day at our France, Paris......

Inperfect ME

The last entry ends with a "but", will blog about it now. I first came back to Kluang 22yrs ago in 1990, incidentally my dad was sick, I started taking care of him. Sad to said he pass away a year latter, so I stay back to be with my mom and my young daughter than. Since mom pass her food stall to me, in all these years whenever my other sibling came back for holiday or festive season all welfare was on me, the food, the comfort, and I have to bear all cost. When during CNY it's about 23paxs for 4 to 5days, I am not complaining, love to have everybody home happy and jolly, cooking for them it's a pleasure when I watched them enjoying the food. But it's always not enough, in the pass 22yrs, every others CNY someone will pick on me to quarrel, I remember the first was(don't remember which year) birthday is on the 13th day of CNY on the lunar calendar, so we normally will either cooked at home or to a restaurant. This particular year my brother wanted to have the dinner at home because our family had quite a few young child so it's kind of inconvenient for children to ran about in the restaurant, as I pass the words around I was pickby my younger sister for insulting her children being naughty, was being scold so badly, we had a quarrel, this was the first. 2years latter, my elder sister scolded me for giving less angpow money to her children and more to the others. Even this I was pick and scolded on a CNY. Another 2years latter, on the 2nd day of CNY my younger sister and her husband came to the house and scolded my brother for some matter about her son, and when my brother explain, my sister and her hubby had no reason to fight him and was embarrass, they pick on me for hearing wrong and calling the wrong person out, you know.. her husband came to the extend of wanted to bash me and that was really really a very very bad one, because I had so many guests in my open house. Another 2years latter nothing happen because I had a heart attack on the 2nd day so no chance to pick on me. I survive 4 seizure Another 2years latter mom's passing on, and off course many happening like sharing mom's assets. And this year my favorite brother scolded me so badly because I scolded his grandson. He was the last person I can think of for picking on something is wrong with me... I had been thinking and wonder what's wrong with this family????? I felt I was and obstacle of the family never treated as one even though I had sacrifices so much trying so hard to keep the family together always doing the best for them, the comfort of the house never once complain, It's so sad that no one appreciate me. To think of it I must be the problem, if not why always me? So since I am the problem I might as well disappear, then life will be much better and happier for them, so I had decided to leave this house, and retired this year. Year of the Dragon 2012 will be my last year in my parent's house. I had done what I should have, taking care of my dad and mom when they are sick until they pass on, what else do I own them? And what have they done for my parent??? Nobody is perfect, I never consider myself as perfect, but at least I tried my best to be, maybe I tried too hard, or maybe I am really not a good person, too frank, unable to be superficial...... Whatever it is, life will be better for them without me....... Guess another chapter of my life will soon being.

Starting 2012

2011 was a happy year for me made many new friends, spent most of my time at the mountain, nothing fantastic happen just simple and doing things that I enjoy therefore it left me very little time for blogging also a very tired year for me. It started off with my missing Million in February which stress me out for 17days,
follow by my missing maid in September, the rest of the month till now is all "one leg kick" to all the work at home and I must said I am so damn lousy in housekeeping....haizzzzzzzzzzzzzz, really wish I can do better.
The year 2012 started off as a quiet count down in front of the TV with my new found little friend Wendy and Million, not that I don't have any invitation, I just want to stay home and enjoy the coziness of my home. I hope this year will brings me, family, daughter and son in law good health, good wealth and lots and lots of happiness, off course the same goes to You and your Family and to all my Friends too.
Hope to blog about the happening in 2011 in my next entry.
