registered with a GP



A hospital is the last place we want to be, in such degree it should stay more comfortable for its visitors. Luckily there's a new open health centre just a walking distance to our house. Here, you must register with a doctor in the part of the city where you're living. Tapi tak boleh ambil ubat pula without appoinment, laa..

Aariz has developed fever last day, it is nearly winter, but Alhamdulillah sembuh the morning after. Nurse him all night,thanks breast milk the drops from heaven. I played my mum's musical box, Aariz likes it, somehow I think it brings the fever down.

Aariz jom tidur

Aariz naps several times before he actual landed to lalaland. If anyone of you know how to train a baby to sleep early, you're most welcome. Tonight just about the side lamp switched off at 10ish, he suddenly woke up and smiled. But I pretended I was asleep, hoping that he would continue to sleep on his own, but I surrendered at last. Couldn't resist his charm, the eyes, those cute little curious fingers..and pearl white teeth. I know I'm adoring him too much.

It's 12am now.

short visit BM&AG


Told you, I'm loving weekend even more. First, because of his tight monday to friday, 9 to 5 class schedule. Second, without EKC I'm less busy person right now.

So last weekend, we went out again to Bullring playing tourist haha. Kira tourist la baru sebulan kan duk sini. Lots of thing to do and see =) Remember the tourist pamphlets? Yes, not until we finished all the places. Now Bullring is a commercial area, shopping and leaisure complex..attractions, museums..Bukankah kita suka melepak tengok2 orang?


busker..
playing Human Nature- MJ. love love the song!

demonstrators

and..ehem, the weekender

and  Lover =)


The initial plan of outing was to visit the Birmingham meseum and art gallery, but we finished the visit less than the allocated time ..ntahlah macam biasa2 saja, not a big one tho.


outside the BM&AG




But spent much time at the cafe, Edwadian tea room. Nice cafe can view the exhibits up there

had hot choc ..Aariz liked it too. Aariz likes chocolate btw.

Last but not least, nak tempek jugakan a pic of yours truly, ..celebrate my new barrett hats I got from carboot sales at 70pents je.. Ok tak?

Foods I like : Cadbury





There's a shop named Poundland, where everything sells at a pound. Bought these at a pound each, except the fingers crunch 3 for 2pounds. Yeah nothing beats Cadbury.

Hmm the Cadbury World is somewhat around here, I think I wanna go =) Today we went out to Bullring, the city centre. Entry on that soon. And today I wore...

visit to Longleat


On monthly basis, daddy's school is organising trip to selected places - cheaper ticket coach and entrance fee.  We've checked out a few and straightly purchased two for this month hehe. So the first trip was Longleat safari, considering that Aariz would love to meet the animals. So on that day,  we woke up early, kesian Aariz mengantuk lagi. First time ni Aariz naik coach =)

Our coach departed promptly at 8:30, as scheduled sebab nak sampai awal. It was a daytrip jadi kenalah berbaloi. Knowing that it was a very long journey (for Aariz) risau juga dia meragam but the idea of packed lunch has saved us. When I saw a sign - 43km to Southampton, wow never thought it was that far! Nevertheless, the journey was taking us on a delightful stunning green scenery. And we passed via Bradford on Avon, at a moment a think I've left my heart in there. Cantik sangat, you can google if you want.

It was nearly three hours journey, Aariz had his nap as a preparation to explore hehe. Longleat has two main attractions, the safari and adventure park.







We began our day with trip around the safari in our coach - it was permitted to leave the coach and walk with giraffe and zebra, but we didn't. Because nobody did so pun..semua pun pusing2 dalam kereta je kan. While mummy and daddy sibuk tengok all those camels and ostriches bagai, Aariz macam biasa 'bird..bird'..suka betul dengan bird.

It was my first time ever seeing white wolves at the final part of the safari. And they were difficult to spot tapi bila dah nampak tu memang scary! I don't know, I mean, I just felt so.

So done with longleat safari, we moved on to the adventure park. Cruise and steam railway were among the most highlighted. The cruise trip took us around Half-Mile lake. Sea lions, hippo and Nico (a gorilla) live in there. Kesian Nico, still mourning over his dead wife. Sentimental pula gorilla kan.




On our Lady Lenka boat, the other one was Lady Bath. What a name =)



And other attractions were castles, maze,pet corner..but everything in here are nature based..





Daddy and Aariz unwind infront of home to the 7th Marquess of Bath, but very private, no photo!

 
One day trip to Longleat was worth the cost, except the bird show =( frankly boring, I should say. Oh please go and learn from Everland Korea team with first class bird show. The bird show should be Aariz's most favorite one.  But big thanks daddy for bringing us along on a beautiful day! Next is Bath.

what's inside a mansion house?


Hubby went to watch the game between Aston and Wigan without me. Alahai I so wanna go, tapi tak sesuailah bawa Aariz. When he came back home, I asked him about it and he replied alaa nothing much..biasa2 saja (nak ambil hati la tu), but still I have a little bit excitement whenever it means for football, or epl to be exact. So, he promised to bring me. 


tadaa..tu yang dibelakang

Just about 200 yards from the stadium was Aston Hall, the Jacobean-style mansion house. The day was planned for the mansion house sebenarnya, yang stadium tu singah2 je. 

I present you the Holtes mansion house..


 pergi  mana-mana mesti pegi tengok bunga (park) dulu



gate to the park

Ok frankly telling, I didn't give much attention to the notes. Biasakan melawat muzium ada nota-nota yang kena tampal tu. Until at home, I did some study about it and it was quite interesting. Long story short, the mansion was originally owned by Sir Thomas Holte, before sold to James Watt jr (Watt known for the steam engine, yes! ) and later was purchased by a private company for use as private park and museum. Sir Thomas was born from a wealthy, land-owning family. But he himself  did much to further his family fortune and the result was Aston Hall to reflect his wealth and status. Started built in 1618 and moved into in 1630, you do the math and now let's see what's inside a mansion house.




from wiki..I can't help not to copy paste the story. Classic but tragic.


Sir Thomas Holte married as his first wife Grace, daughter and co-heiress of William Bradbourne of Hough, Derbyshire, with whom he had fifteen children. Sir Thomas made use of his connections to secure his second son, Edward, a position in King Charles I's household. Whilst in London, Edward met and married Elizabeth King, daughter of John King, the incumbent Bishop of London. Unfortunately, Sir Thomas did not give his permission for the marriage, and never forgave his son for proceeding with the wedding regardless. Edward was entirely cut out from his inheritance, and despite pleas from the King himself, Sir Thomas never allowed reconciliation. After the death of the eldest son George in 1641, Edward was Sir Thomas' only remaining son. Sir Thomas re-married in short order Anne, the youngest daughter of Sir Edward Littleton of Pillaton Hall, and made great efforts to raise another son, so that Edward could be permanently cut out of the estate. Edward died on military service in 1643, having never returned to the family fold despite his several attempts. It was rumoured Sir Thomas locked up a daughter because she refused to marry her father's choice of husband. The story goes that she starved to death.

Sir Thomas' second wife was able to give him another son, but the boy did not survive past childhood, in common with nine of the children from Sir Thomas' first marriage. During his last days he was finally persuaded to leave Aston Hall and all his estates to Edwards's son Robert, his grandson, who would inherit the baronetcy. Sir Thomas was buried in Aston Church, survived only by his wife and daughter Grace.


What really inside a mansion house. hmmmm
I don't need such mansion, I just love my life!

What Aariz is up to now.

He probably has forgotten his mini playground at our home (Bangi), or it's always a playground if toys are around. Last 2 weeks the weather was good for car boot sales. We've been told by other parents that car boot sales are heaven for toys. And it really was. Love shopping mainan for Aariz!

Bought Leap Frog learning tablets, Fisher Price walker and books, at tip top conditions as if they've never been used. Aariz now walks steadily and luckily the walker can be converted to ride-on.

Aariz's favorite word is "nak"..maksudnya mahu makan hehe. His most wanted? Potato chips. Enjoy himself munching and watching his favorite, well none other than upin ipin (on youtube), or sometimes playing games on cbeebies (on bbc)



Aariz  loves the weather in here, selamba sejuk taknak pakai jaket. And being more friendly than ever. Habis semua orang ditegurnya,..on the street or wherever. Uncle gas pun suka Aariz.

when the sun shines brightly, let's do laundry!


with daddy beli ice cream


Allahuakbar!


Aariz likes doing chores, sapu gosok2 dan 'lipat' baju. And at night telling bedtime stories to mummy and fall asleep slowly. Oh Aariz!

a weird park near Washwood Heath

Before we come, I've been picturing a nice park just near our house. That was what I thought a housing area in UK would be. So, I asked my husband if he knows any. Yeah there's one but don't expect much, he warned me.

So off we went to check out the park. I should say a weird abandoned park. Swans/ducks welcomed us warmly, they must thought that we were going to feed them.  Scary tho. Not sure the park's name but it located at Washwood Heath, so it would be the name..In case someone else wants to google about the same park, hence this entry title hihi.

For the sake of an autumn pictures..







Harapnya you all tak kisah banyak sangat gambar, I do read my blog to refresh my memories =)
