Poole, United Kingdom (by Dhanie)

i wake up early today because i slept early last nite. the first place that i went is at the kitchen... i dunno why i went there first. im not hungry at all but i jz wanted to go there.. then i saw my aunt was preparing the food in the kitchen. then i asked her why she put the food in the tupperwear. then she said that we are going fer a picnic at Poole or Bournemouth, UK. It is located 3 hours from London. So i went upstairs (3th floor) to get ready. The first place that we went is at Poole park. it was very beautiful park because the grass is very nice. the view is beautiful but the beach did not attract meat all... we have a picnic the park. after about 1 hour (act im not so sure bout the time), we went to the Poole Quay which is not far from the park. this place is beautiful. there were lots of boats there. many tourist was having their holiday there. the most things that attract me at UK is the car and dogs. we can see many sports cars and very2 cute dogs here. at first, im afraid of dogs but now im not afraid of it. it is because there are so many dogs here and the dogs here did not disturb u like Malaysia dogs. one funny situation that happened to me that day was when i and my cousin, Sarah went to the Poole beach. there was a small cute white dog came to us. then i quckly run away frm the dog. the dog went to his/her owner back. then i came back to the place that i sat jznow, then the dog's owner asked me ' r you afraid of the small dog?' then i said 'yes'. he laughed at me. i smile back at was alr 5pm.. so we have to go back home. but b4 that we went to bournemouth 1st to see the view there. u know what, Bournemouth is much more better and beautiful place than Poole. the beach was so beautiful. there were lots of people there. we didnt stop by there bcoz we have to go home early to pray. we kinda frustrated because we went to the wrong place. we should go to Bournemouth 1st before Poole because Bournemouth is a very beautiful place compare to Poole. my uncle said that 'its ok, we will go there again next time'.you can see photos here ;

Dhanie's first time travelling alone

Kring..... its not d bell or the fone ringing but its the alarm.. it was 5.30am alr. i have to wake up early today because my flight is at 9.50am... i have to get ready to go to LCCT before 7am because i have to be at the airport 2 hours before my departure time. I dun really know how to explain bout my feeling that time.. i felt excited but a bit sad to be far away from my family. i never be far away from them before this. i never travel alone for a long period. this is my first time experience to be on my feet. I felt nervous too because i dun noe anybody there and im not feeling well dat day.
Everything goes fine. i get to know some new friends in the flight. they r Malaysian too. They also travel alone like me. so we plan to walk together when we reach the Stanted Airport UK. My aunt waited for me at the Stanted Airport UK. i arrived there at 4.30-5 pm (UK time) or 11.30-12pm (Malaysia time). it takes about 14 hours journey.
Talking about the 14 hours journey, i have a very bored time on the plane.. the seat is quite small and not so comfortable for a long journey. there are 8 seats in a role and i sat in the middle ofthe role. there are 4 seats in the middle of the role. luckily, there was only 2 people sat there.. it was me and a british lady. She's always keep smiling at me and it makes me feel more comfortable to seat beside her. After 6 hours journey, i started to feel miserable. i dunno what to do. so i bought the 'movies service' there. we have to paid RM30 if we want to watch the movies. im not satiesfied with the movies service because there are only 5 movies and a few hit songs that were provided in the player. many of the songs in the player was not for my age. there are a lot of 70's n 80's songs which i dun even know or hear the artist's name. but i belasah je bcoz it is much more better than not listening or watching anything rite? hahaha.
