Last Day @ London

I woke up this morning with the same feeling about a year ago when I was about to leave London. I was not ready to leave. I do not know why but I believe that there is still so much to do and places to see which might just be a personal preference. You may want to challenge me that I do not like my home country but you are wrong. I love Malaysia to bits and it is where I will always call home. I would eventually spend most of my life in Malaysia and it would be a struggle if I do not love my home country.

One of the key attractions I have for London might be because of the life I experienced there both as a student and when I first started working. Looking back, I have no doubt enjoyed my time but I would not relive those days again as that chapter of my life is over. If I were to get a chance to work there, I would not hesitate but it needs to be something different.

Kensington Palace

Me, Soon Shuen + Song Yia @ Kensington Palace

Enough of me spilling my personal feel on the subject matter. I accompanied the girls in the morning to Buckingham Palace to see changing of the guards before walking through Hyde Park to Kensington Palace. Shortly after we had Taza kebab on Queensway where I use to live. It was soon for me to make my way to the airport when we headed to service apartment to collect my luggage before boarding the Heathrow Express from Paddington.

The airport was as busy as usual and since the failure of the recent terrorist attacks, we were not allowed to bring water through the security checkpoints and certain liquid products such as gel were only allowed in small portions placed in a clear plastic bag that they provide.

After clearing security, I did some quick duty free shopping before boarding the 6.05 p.m MH0007 flight back to KL.
