SHAKESPEARE'S BIRTH PLACE
Friday, July 11, 2014





So now I'm out of school for 2 months and I don't quite know what to do with that. Hehe. But, it is sooooo incredibly awesome to stay at home, berkuntum and just doing NOTHING. Hehe.

And it is amazing to see photos of myself from working days back in Malaysia. It literally feels like a whole lifetime ago. Well, student life is also hard, I NEVER expected it not to be. It is hard physically and emotionally but I'm getting there, inshaaAllah.





Now, I only have one hour before I leave my lappy to prepare for sahur and then zzzz. Hehe. So a quick one, just a little update, we went to Stratford Upon Avon few days ago and that was our first trip during Ramadhan. But it turned out to be an enjoyable visit, surprisingly. Loved it.

Stratford Upon Avon is a little town with many well preserved houses and cottages, just an easy 30 minutes train journey from Birmingham Moor Street station (5£ for return tickets). And it is a bit difficult to miss Shakespeare in Stratford because it is best known as the birth place and home of William Shakespeare. This is the place where he was born and spent his early years where his father ran a business. Thanks to the super informative guides for the explanations! Hehe.








The Shakespeare's garden is in full bloom now, and it is just so lovely. I have taken hundreds of photos of this section and I just can't get enough of the flowers hehe. Lawa. 





Haih, beautiful house with wonderful garden, I want! Hehe. Just picture perfect and my personal favorite. 





Hehe ni pulak pose menangisi takdir. Hahaha. Thanks for wiping my tears away, Romeo. Gitew. Anyway they have the actors to perform some readings from Shakespeare's play on request and apparently when they were asking me if I have any request, I can only think of Romeo and Juliet! Hahaha tu je yang ahkak tahu dik oi.








But first, let us take a selfieeee! Gittew. So finally, our first trip together hiks. #anokkelatedibirminghae. Penat nak melayan orang yang obses dengan diri sendiri ni uols! Hahaha. So, I uploaded our picture on FB and since all of us used to work in EY before, my caption was "Ex-EYians reunited in Stratford Upon Avon! Do we miss our job? Hell NO!" Haaa kau tak pijak tanah kan caption. Then suddenly the Partner of the firm pergi LIKE pic itu. Hahaha. Pengsan. I want my job back please! Hehe.  

Hmm, I'll be going to Manchester in few hours, till later.
