We reached Portugal on Tuesday night. Left Seville after last minute shopping around 4pm and drove 2 hours to Tavira, a lil fishing village in Algarve. Portugal was really beautiful (as we did not actually think its going to be that beautiful, to be honest). The adventure in Portugal- saw pick pocket in action on the tram, cant find our way to the hostel, followed an uncle who drove us there..too fast too desperate, went into a no entry lane and managed to pull out before tram arrives and had to return the car earlier cos parking was just too difficult in Lisbon. The best experience-driving to the Cape St Vincent, the most south western point in Europe really makes my day..hehehe. The drove up to Lisbon for 6 hours on a dual carriage way..going past every lil village in Portugal. Lisbon is so lively! Cant believe we really had fun in Portugal. Obrigada..

Its second day of Eid and im flying off to Lisbon, Portugal. This is the most adventurous trip I had so far this year- drove left-hand for the first time, drove 5 hours from Lisbon-Seville, had to to reversed the car on the highway cos went to the wrong lane at tol, had a Bourne identity experience while driving down the narrow-cobbled street in Cordova and slept in the car for the first night cos the hostels were fully booked. But that is what travelling is all about..if not ill be like one of those typical tourist (no way!). Andalucia..southern of Spain which still has the remaining of the Islamic arts from the Moorish times. Flamenco, bull fight, tapas..all originates from Andalucia and now you can see it commercialized everywhere. We stayed in Seville for 3 nights and visited the Seville Cathedral (used to be a mosque, how sad), Plaza Espana, Alcazar, Plaze El Toros, watched flamenco, eat lots of tapas and full. Then had a day out to Cordova to visit the famous Mezquita. It was really nice and the weather is really hot!

This is the time when I can really say 'I love my job'. Was asked to replaced a girl to go to New Jersey to do an audit job in a week. Of course i said YES!. My 10 years visa proves to be really handy. I have even managed to asked my manager to give me a day extension so that i can visit New York for the second time. I have enjoyed my time there and surprisingly New York has not let me down. Definitely a city to visit for those who have never been there! Went shopping, met new friends and travelling all by myself. Kinda had a Carrie Bradshaw experience (despite unable to buy a pair of Manolos) Sad to say but travelling on business or work is definitely not as fun as travelling on your own (have to do reports etc). Anyway, Eid is coming and im off to Portugal. Gosh, I am excited cos have never celebrate Eid in overseas before. Selamat Hari Raya to everyone!

Berlin, Germany - You are leaving the American sector!

That's the sign board, read carefully please!
Berlin dome
Platz d Martz

That's the famous sign board in Berlin which separated the American and Russian army controlled area. Went to Berlin for 5 days from 8-12/9/2007. Got back from Swiss on 7/9, unpack and send Farah off. Then fly off with MJ to Berlin and came back to UK just in time for the fasting month. Checkpoint Charlie, Museum Island (check out Pergamon museum, its grand!), Olympia stadium (where Hitler gave his speech as well) and most importantly the shops are open till late night. Despite the country's catastrophe-strewn past, there is no denying the remarkable resilience of a nation that has come out from two world wars and 40 years of division of the East and West. It was remarkable!

This is our day out to Dresden, a beautiful city in Saxon, Germany. Beautifully built with baroque buildings in the old town along the Elbe river. Dresden was a city almost destroyed from bombing in World War 2 and it has been reconstructed again to what it is today. We took a train from Berlin to Dresden which is 3 hours away. The good thing in Germany is that on weekends the train rain is really cheap especially if you are travelling in a group. Return trip that we paid from Berlin -Dresden is Euro35 (its actually price for up to 6 people). What a bargain!
