Mission accomplised! heh.. London is 2 hours and a half away drive from Birmingham. Having that on mind and..erk kind of taking it for granted, we kept postponed London visit. Only in July we finally had our first trip to London (and had second visit the next 2 weeks) , to collect our milo stock at Malaysian Embassy. Our dear friend came to London, unfortunately we didn't get the chance to see her, and she brought our 9 kgs milo stock all the way from KL! Mahalnya milo oi haha.
We took National Express bus from Digbeth coach station, Birmingham city at 6ish am ( days start as early as 4 am in summer term) and arrived at Victoria coach station, London at 9: 30 am. Memang penat lah naik bus but it was kind of last minute decision so we missed out the train low fare. But the journey was fine, Aariz slept along the way and we experienced London morning traffic jam a bit.
sampai London, erk..haha
Victoria Coach Station area
Morning in London
Heading to Belgrave Square to find Malaysian Embassy..kind of tricky, maklumlah tak biasa London huhu. It was quite a walk from the coach station. Tapi oklah, we enjoyed the walk boleh la tengok2 apa yang patut..
We bumped into Malaysian, and we asked them the Embassy whereabouts. Malaysian kan baik dan peramah ^_^ they ushered us to the building..
This is inside the Malaysian Embassy. Oh rasa terharunya dah sampai! Malaysian building berdiri megah di kota London.. ( and of coz we can enjoy our Milo yey!)
We waited a bit until we met the person in charge, while I had a chat with the man with white shirt. He's Filipino, I assumed right from his accent. Ingatkan semua Malaysian kat sini. Malaysian memang baik dan generous.
