...Ciao Italia - Day 11 - Milano-Roma-Doha-M'sia

me n d interior work of NewUrbanFace
...u know what shop this is...
aaa...bye2 Roma...grazie
It is d last day for our Italian adventure n we've oredi booked our train to Roma in d afternoon. In d morning, we headed again to d city centre as I want to visit d Milan Tourist Information Centre as well as d Milan Urban Centre within d Galleria...d later was closed over d weekend. It was quite a pleasant suprise for me as on display r various proposed n on-going urban redevelopment projects within Milano. On top of that, we also took a short bus ride to d nearby Corso Buenos Aires for some last minit nyopping...huhu...utk raya kott.

After ceq-ing out of our hotel, we travelled south on Treno 9439 for about 5 hours to Roma Termini. It was suppose to be a 4.5-hour ride only but as stated earlier, d train service is 'susceptible' to delays. Nasib baik still have ample time b4 our flight. After another train ride n reaching Roma Fiumicino Aeroporto, d gate to d boarding hall was quite jam-packed...many passengers...but only 3 immigration counters...this is really Italian-style gamaknye...hhmm.

Our flight home was quite uneventful n we were in transit in Doha for 9 hours...nasib baik b'fast n lunch provided for...but limited to one outlet je...a d food choice is...not much choice...hihi. But still...alhamdullillah la kan...tak payah spent more utk ngunyah. Much later...alhamdullillah again...we were back home in tanah tumpah darah. Wow...from Milan to Roma to Doha to KLIA to Shah Alam within d span of about 33 hours...lotih den!

This is a display of NewUrbanFace within d Milano Assessore Turismo (Milan Tourist Information Centre), a take on interior work by Simone Micheli Architect.

n next stop is Milano's Urban Centre...nasib baik sempat gak jengok tempat ni...

a model of Milano's City Life project by Zaha Hadid n gang...

...information on many other projects proposed n some oredi implemented in d city...

Portello...I passed by this project while on a bus ride yesterday or d day b4...but didn't manage to records its images...but from the look of was almost completed. It used to be an industrial area...including factory for Alfa Romeo I read somewhere

a model for student housing...reminded me of residential hi-rise in Miami

one bus ride later n we r in d Corso Buenos Aires area...nyopping time...

d Benetton store with 70% saldi (sale la...apa lagi)...

Milanese going about their businesses on Corso Buenos Aires

many of d Milano's street r tree-lined...providing much needed shades for d hot summer months

After ceq-ing out of Una Hotel, we boarded this train to Roma Termini. It has 'stewardess' as well...selling drinks n lite snacks. D guy in black...a uni student from Holland...ok gak borak2 with least he can speak English...n he said that back home he is with d Green party (environmentalist la kott...bukan Pas).

some shots while on d train travelling thru Tuscany country...a hill top town...

...n one of d many farms along d rail tracks

later at Roma Fiumicino Aeroporto...n we were stuck as only limited immigration service is available

My Sayang last minute window shopping in d Aeroporto...jadi lahh...tapi tak beli apa2 pun...but sempat la pekena pre-flight dinner dulu

here we r in Doha...with a sun just rising. I was later told by one of d airport staff that no foto-ing allowed while on d tarmac...hhmm...macam2 la tok Arab nihh...

similar to d practice in dubai airport...Doha also offers lucky draw for a this case...a nice black CLS. N believe it or not...even in this shopping area foto-ing is a no no...go figure

aahhh....sejuk mata memandang...d familiar scenery of Klang Valley...home sweet home. Alhamdullillah for a great trip...hopefully dipanjangkan umur...dimurahkan rezki...n we should do this again...another destinations perhaps, insyaAllah
