UK Trip : Day 6
trying to finish up my UK posts ASAP because my first exams of the year are coming up in 3 weeks ! D:
breakfast at the Victoria Station !! my guilty pleasure – chocolate cookies T___T went to the station to take a bus to our destination of the day – Oxford !!! (which by the way is not in London , i repeat NOT in London … Oxford is like another city altogether)
OMG OMG OMG OMG LOOK WHAT I SAW AT THE BUS STATION !!!! CAN I JUST GO ON THIS BUS INSTEAD T____T !!!
*camwhores with the bus i never got to go on* :( SOMEDAY I WILL COME BACK AND GO FOR THE HARRY POTTER TOUR WITH FELLOW POTTERHEADS , FULL STOP .
while waiting for the correct bus to board , aka the OxfordTube …
camwhore on the bus !! love the bus because THERE IS FREE WIFI !!! free wifi is quite uncommon in UK … i mean wifi is common but they always want you to pay for it zzz ..
and here we are at lovely little Oxford !! also home of the ever so famous …
OXFORD UNIVERSITY HOODIES !!1!!!111! and of course Oxford University :p seriously though , how many of the people who own them ACTUALLY go/went to Oxford University ?
first stop , Christ Church ; which is a college as well as a cathedral church ! :D
photo with my mom’s friend and her husband who we were staying with ! umm as usual , my mom doesn’t want her face on my blog :p
photos of me outside the church !! HAHA SPOT MY MOM’S FRIENDS AT THE BACK . had to pay £5 just to visit the church … which wasn’t worth it at all because there wasn’t much to see … but i guess all things are expensive in UK :S
had to go in alone because the adults didn’t want to pay to go in T___T
inside the church ..
NOW FOR THE MAIN REASON WHY I WAS WILLING TO PAY AROUND RM25 JUST TO VISIT A CHURCH :
these stairs !!! yup , the stairs !!! and if you’re scratching your head now puzzling over what’s so special about a flight of stairs … let me show you .
the stairs in Hogwarts were inspired by the stairs in Christ Church !!! and if you think that’s all , take a look below !
does this dining hall seem familiar to you ? :p
the super famous Great Hall in Hogwarts was also inspired by it !!! unfortunately the Great Hall in which all the actors were filmed in was a REPLICA of the dining hall in Christ Church … thus i didn’t see their real filming location (in the studio) , only the one that inspired it …
asked a nice elderly woman to help me snap these photos ! :)
pretty pretty architecture *o*
and a map of the cathedral !
in the courtyard !! walking on the grass was not allowed for some reason whatsoever …
Harry Potter merchandise in the souvenir shop !! the Hedwig plush is way too cute *w*
back to the streets after that ! still had some time left before i needed to meet the others so i walked around …
went to the Oxford Covered Market ! lots of quaint little shops there …
chanced upon this cake shop !! can i work there T___T
lunch alone then went off to meet the rest !!!
my mom’s friends went on a walking tour so me and my mom just went around looking at museums to waste time …
The History of Science Museum ! boring boring boring .. the only thing i found interesting was a blackboard with Einstein’s handwriting and equations … so much science and maths i don’t understand a single thing of what he wrote HAHAHA
and the Ashmolean Museum … which focuses more on Roman and Greek history … and has lots of naked statues … with very small ding-dongs … if you know what i mean … #ididn’tmeantolookatit #butseriously #sosmall
hey look a parthenon in an Acropolis ! oh , the things we learn in Sejarah …
more pictures of me with some old English buildings …
and then it was time to go home !
check out these cool Cadbury ice-creams man … i wanted to try one so badly but i was too full to eat anything at that point T___T
phew ! finally done with this post , see you guys soon ! only 4/5 more posts to blog about my UK trip , hope you’re not sick of it yet ! D:
