For this trip to UK, we had planned that we may do a bit of travelling...but depending on d outcome of the viva of course. So...since I need to do some corrections, especially on d questionnaire part (that I didn't bring along with me to UK), we decided to jengok Spain kejap. And of course, Elyas sekeluarga pun decided utk to come along with us...d more d merrier.

So, early this morning, Muzamil transported us to East Midland Airport (EMA) in his limo...thanks a lot br. M. By d way, it was Tasya's 1st ever historical event la tuhh. We safely arrived in Madrid b4 1 pm and headed to Avis for our car. Unfortunately d Zafira (since they were 6 of us) was not available but I insisted on it n one was sourced from another terminal...legaaa. So, based on d map(s) that we got, off to downtown Madrid we went. At first, we were quite suprised that the ct was quite sunyi but then only we realised that it was their siesta time and it is also a Sunday. So we drove around n stopped at Parque del Retiro for our picnic lunch.

Afterwards, we just had a leisure drive along a few of Madrid's thoroughfares and visited Plaza de Toros (tempat for bull fighting - man vs bull) as well as Real Madrid's Bernabeu Stadium (Beckham n rest of d galaticos tgh siesta kott masa we all dtg). Later we headed to our hotel in Parla, located right outside Madrid. It was interesting to observe this mainly residential area as a lot of considerations were given to d pedestrians...with walkways (equipped with various amenities) between d vehicular lanes and d many restrictions imposed on d vehicular traffic (narrow street, speed bumps, one-way street, restricted n limited parking areas).

By d way, if u r familiar with the Spanish word 'ole', we learned that this word was derived from d word 'Allah'...way back then when Muslims were a force to be reckoned with in Spain.

Here we all posing kejap in Parque del Retiro...

One of d souvenir stalls at Plaza del Toros...we found out later souvenirs at these type of stalls were cheaper than d shops at other places...rugi gak coz we all nyopping sikit je

Snapping fotos while driving...if I am not mistaken this is along Gran Via

Posing jap dgn Elyas...outside Realcafe of Bernabeu Stadium. We also visited d gift shop, which looked like it was run by of d items are quite pricey...there4 we all just window shopping je la
