I still haven't found the inspiration to blog about Europe. Not like I'd found any to start on my books yet. Tell me about it.

So this is another short post on my backpacking whereabouts after the Europe trip.

i) Manchester

The one and only regret I had in Manchester was not being able to visit Old Trafford. Thanks to the English Premier League that was going on. Sigh.

ii) Ireland

My very own perfect pint of Guinness!

Never liked it but it didn't taste too bad, contrary to the Malaysian one.

iii) Scotland

Highlands of Scotland.

It was autumn and our guide said that we were very lucky to have the sun.

Love this picture because it's exactly like a postcard (with me in it).

iv) Newcastle upon Tyne

v) London!

On the London Eye, with Big Ben in the background!

In Madame Tussauds, with Shrek :)

I've heard so much about London and was looking much forward to this place. BUT (there's always a 'but'), I.. don't.. really like this place. Everything was moving so quickly. The cars, the vans, the buses, the PEOPLE. Makes me wonder if these people ever slow down a pace in their lives.

But I never said I didn't like the shopping there, did I? :p

Told ya there's always a 'but'! ;)

Deepavali 2010

I know I should be updating about Europe but couldn't find the "mood" to do so. Blame it on laziness. :p

This is a short filler post on my Deepavali weekend. :)

I was a cowgirl in North America.


I was in Cameron Highlands!

With a big face super big flower.

If you guys remember, I once said that I was brought up by an Indian lady, whom I share the same birth date with. She is my second mummy and her family is like my family as well.

Anyways, after so many years of not spending Deepavali together, I followed them to Cameron Highlands for a few days.

Having a leeeeetle trouble going up the Boh Tea Farm.

We had a great time relaxing and walking around in the cool weather. :)

*Blows dust*

I think it's time for some update eh? ;)

Uni exams ended on 16th September and on that same night itself, I left my beloved home in Sheffield for Europe. Was in the continent for two weeks (17th - 30th); leaving footprints in seven countries during the period.

Average time spent in one country is about two days. -_-

You know how people go for food testing in a buffet during the first round to see which dish that they like the most? And then eat more of what they liked from the second round onwards? This Europe trip works exactly like that.

It's like a 'country testing' thing to see which countries that we liked. And then we have to fork out more money to go to those specific countries that we want to explore in depth in the future.

Anywayyyyyyyyy.. the seven countries are:

(You might find ugly and fat photos of me below but I'm still posting them up just because I'm kind. :p)

i) Belgium

Sightseeing in the city of Brussels.

ii) Netherlands (or better known as Holland)

With the three oldest (I think) windmills.


iii) Germany

Eating the famous German pork knuckles in a restaurant in Rhine Valley.

Not forgetting German beer in a local beer house in Munich!

iv) Austria

At Swarovski Crystal World in Innsbruck.

v) Italy

In Verona - touching Juliet's erm, boobies for luck in love life.

(Don't know why because the Romeo and Juliet story didn't have a good ending????)

(You might also recognize this statue if you'd watched Letters to Juliet.)

On a gondola ride in Venice.

Vatican City.

(Sigh super sunny and hot and sweaty that day but still had to put on my sweater in case the guards didn't let me in.)

Making a wish at the Fontana di Trevi, Rome.

Panoramic view of Florence from Michelangelo's Hill.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Milan, the city of fashion.

vi) Switzerland

Engelberg - Mount Titlis!

vii) France
Charmonix Mont-Blanc.

Paris Disneyland!

And of course, the wonderful Eiffel Tower.

So after "eating" the "Europe buffet", the "dishes" that I loved the most was.. Italy and France!

The Colosseum.


Eiffel Tower at night.

So beautiful, how could I not go there again??

I guess this post also works like the buffet thing? Detailed posts about each place will be done later on. Heee.
