UK Trip : Day 11 and 12
LAST UK TRIP BLOG POST OMG AT LONG LAST HAHAHA . idk why i have a feeling you all are dead bored of my UK posts … therefore i apologize for being so draggy :((
on a side note , just finished my first exams of the year and my results are really satisfying so i’m grateful for that :D ok leggo !
last photo in Newcastle !! went to breakfast with my brother’s sort-of foster brother in the morning and flew back to London after that … it was also the day where there was a football match at Arsenal so the train was REALLY packed on the way home , but once the trained stopped at Arsenal , everyone got off and it was the first time a train had ever been so empty on this trip HAHAHHA
went to The Mall at Wood Green cos my mom insisted i needed a leather bag … ooookay mom
The Mall is very very very much like the Sg Wang / Times Square in KL … price-wise i mean . everything is dirt cheap there ! :o
so i finally got my first designer bag from TK-Maxx ! i wouldn’t say my family is rich but we are pretty well to do , however my parents aren’t the type that would spoil their kids with branded items because they want us to know the value of money … and i wouldn’t have got a designer bag if it wasn’t sold at TK Maxx (known for selling rejected branded items) . the original price of my bag was £269.90 , but i got it for £77.00 at TK Maxx ! the bag was in good conditions and i couldn’t find anything faulty with it so i was quite happy with my purchase ! :D
we were heading back to Malaysia the next day so i had to start packing :S oh noo …
my total haul after 11 days D: i swear it was at least 10kg !! okay maybe not haha
also this is where i slept for the most of my trip … on a makeshift bed made out of two comforters .. it isn’t the best of course , but it was good enough :)
Day 12 !! went for breakfast at The Gilpin’s Bell , another one of Weatherspoon’s restaurants (DID I MENTION HOW MUCH I LOVE WEATHERSPOON)
shared a final big english breakfast and greek yoghourt with fruits with le mom !! SOOOOO YUMMY NO REGRETS .
our flight was at night so we had some time to spend so we wen’t to King’s Cross St Pancras Station …
hello King’s Cross :D if you know me well enough , i bet you can already guess why i wanted to visit a train station LOLOL
for the iconic Platform 9 and 3/4 of course !!! hehehehehehhehe
lots of people lining up … the set-up is pretty fake actually since it wasn’t even on a platform … in fact it was OUTSIDE all the other platforms BUT WHO CARES IT’S HARRY POTTER :DDDD as you can see in the photo , they provided scarves as props for the people who visited !
and of course i picked my house scarf , Ravenclaw ! <3 <3 <3 hahah the sampat people working there pulled the scarf to make it seem like it’s flying :p
went to Oxford Street again after that because my mom STILL isn’t satisfied with her shopping *facepalms* so i went to H&M again !
gosh don’t the mannequins at H&M look like Ju-on ? imagine being one of the cleaners and cleaning up the place late at night as the clock strikes twelve , with no-one else in sight … HAHAHA OK LET’S NOT GO OFF TOPIC .
YOLO-ed and got myself a double-scoop ice-cream after that !! chocolate + cookies and cream ! no idea why my scoop of cookies and cream is placed so lopsidedly BUT IT WAS SO YUMMY ALL THE SAME . i looooove dairy products in the UK , so much better than Malaysia’s !!! i don’t care if it was winter , ice-cream time is anytime i have the opportunity ! :p
went to this tiny supermarket called Aldi on the way home ! they sell chocolate at an extremely cheap price so i had to go hahaha
haul of the day !!!
Skirt from F21 - £5
rose clips from H&M - £0.50 (SHOULD’VE GOTTEN MORE DAMMIT)
baking needs and chocolate - £5.30 SOOOO CHEAP I SWEAR . the fondant is sold at approximately £4.5 in Malaysia but at Aldi it was only £0.99 !! what !!!!
then it was time to pack and leave for the airport T_____T packing was REALLY hard for us cos me and my mom only came with 2 luggage bags … we bought another luggage bag while we were in UK but it STILL wasn’t enough FOL . anyway after much squashing and moving things around , finally we were done ! phew !
luggage filled with chocolate … im not kidding there is ONLY chocolates in this bag .
heheh also got my first designer perfume at the airport !! the original scent from Juicy Couture , only £50 and it comes with a free purse !
food on the plane !! i really really love being on planes , and plane food > all other food HAHAHHA .
also … this is how much i spent in total after 12 Days in UK :'(((( nvm it’s not my money HAHA .
next blog post will be a sum-up of ALL my hauls throughout this trip + unboxing my new perfume ! look forward to it ! <3
