From Krakow to Romania!! Took a train from Krakow to Wien then fly from Wien to Bucharest (Buchuresti) the capital city of Romania. A different place to travel as Romania used to be a communist country. Had their first election in 1990 and now its the wild east of Eastern Europe. Bucharest eclectic architecture is a mix of histortical and Communist-era and modern. The city's elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned the nickname Paris of the East (they even have the tower!). Although many of the building and districts in the historic centre were damaged by earthquakes and Nicolae Ceausescu's program of systematization have survived till today. Its definitely a different city compared to the rest of the capital cities I have been before.

This is the biggest concentration campu built by Nazi during the World War II. This undeniably the highlight of our trip as this is my first time visiting such a camp. Aushwitz is situated outside Krakow and it took us an hour and half on a bus journey there. There is about one million men, women and children of many nations (mainly Jews) perished here between June 1941 and January 1945. The whole complex that we visited were either murdered (gas chamber etc), starved or worked to death. This is definitely very different to the places that I have visited before. It will made you think and look at life at a different perspective.

This is our trip to Eastern Europe which covers Poland and Romania. Krakow is the second biggest city in Poland. This medieval city is known as cultural capital of Poland with a strong sense of identity. The medieval market square, Cloth Hall, Wawel Castle are the main attractions. We even managed to go for visit to Aushwitz-Birkenau concentration camp (which i will do a separate page) as this is the highlight of our trip. The other main attraction nearby to Krakow is the Salt mine (which is Unesco heritage site). Joining us (me and Mijoe) for this trip is Eli (my ACCA classmate back home). She will also be joining our LA trip in Oct. Here's to our first trip together. Voila!

Mum and dad is finally here!!! They're supposed to come last Raya to visit but had to postpone cos grandma's ill. At last, they arrived in Manchester and was quite worried cos they're not a frequent traveller. Of course mum's luggage is full of food for me, the only child who's living on her own in a country which is so different than back home. Luckily Easter holidays was around and managed to brought them to London, Oxford, Stoke-on-Trent for Royal Doulton and Birmingham. The wather was pretty cold for them but at least they managed to get a lil taste of my so called English life. Cheers!!

The weekend trip in York to visit this famous historic walled city in North Yorkshire. I went there to meet up with Sham, my old friend from SRK Marian Convent, Ipoh. This is an overdue appointment that i had put on hold due to the other commitments since I moved over to Manchester. Finally managed to meet up! We chat about the good old times and catching up on the 15 years life since we left primary school. How times had gone by and deep down inside we are still the same person. Its definitely good to meet up with people from the past...reminds me where I came from, the path that I have chosen to be where I am today. Thanks Shamila for the lovely weekend!
