At the moment I wrote this, I’m at St James’s Park, London. Waiting for the Changing Guard Ceremony at the Buckingham Palace. I don’t know how the expressed myself. I don’t know how to thank to AirAsia that make my wish come true. I never thought that one day, ONE fine day, that I’ll be in London. Oh dear …..it is a wonderful feeling.
I, together with my husband, flew from LCCT to Stansted, London on 19th March, 2009 at 4.20 pm (local time). My heart pounding as this is the first time we will be going to London. Our dream destination. All the way to London, not to mentioned its 14 hours long journey….we had a pleasant journey. We talk, we ate, and we watch movies from the E-player. The E-player helps a lottt. Then, the Captain announced, we will land in Stansted in a few minutes. Once the captain says ” we already safely landed in Stansted, London” Oh My God.Oh My God. I’m in London! I’m in London. I asked my husband to pinch me a bit. Just to make sure that I’m not dreaming, and I’m NOT.
We passed the immigration without any hassles. It just go smoothly and nice. The officer, Alan, is so nice and warm. He asked 5 question :-
1) is it your first time in London ?
2) how long you’ll be in London?
3) after that what u do ?
4) can i see your return ticket?
5) where will you stay in London?
There. it’s done. no worries okay. once we get out from the airport to catch our bus to central London, we freezed. Its so cold. Then by Easybus, we off to Victoria Station.
In London, we walk..walk…walk..and walk again.I think that is the best way to feel like London people. Oh, not to mentioned how sufficient the underground tube and the buses. I did not faced any trouble while in London. The people are so warm. Just asked them how and where to go, and they will explain and show the easiest way. We went to see the changing guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace, the Big Ben, Tower Bridge, ride the spectacular London Eye, went to Stanford Bridge – Chelsea Stadium, to Camden Town-just to experience the 4 flea markets. Hey…you can get what ever you want in Camden and its cheap too.
Stanford bridge – Chelsea Stadium
For those who crawling for branded item, must not to forget the Oxford Street. It will make your feet screwed up! Trust me. With Selfridges, Primark, Clarkes, Gap and many more. Just prepared your loaded pocket and your credit card as well.
For Muslims, a lot of halal foods in London. There’s one at King Cross/St Pancras Station, Leicester Square, Bayswater and others. The food is huge!
Today, is my last day in London. Its quite sad as i have to leave tomorrow morning. I have a lovely stay in London. I love the city. I love the weather. I love St. James’s Park.
To AirAsia, Thank You. Thank you so much for making my dreams do come true. Now, I believe, ” Everyone Can Fly”.
