UK Trip 2013: Cardiff

Wednesday 20 November 2013 – Friday 22 November 2013

We took the morning train from Paddington to Cardiff. Checked out from our apartment and we bid farewell to London.

Nak dijadikan cerita – we were having breakfast while waiting for our train tiba-tiba si Z vomited! He was sitting on his stroller and muntahkan segala isi alam. I rushed him to the nearest babyroom and started cleaning up. Bila dah siap semua, my family was already waiting for me to board on the train. We were running frantically to the coach and barely made it. Gosh! I hate to even recall that experience.

Nevertheless, the ride was a smooth one. I loved train rides in the UK. The scenery is breathtaking-ly beautiful. IY and Z behaved well. Tak ramai sangat orang dalam tu so Z happily jumped from one seat to another. London to Cardiff is only 2½ hours. Sekejap je dah sampai.

In Cardiff we “checked-in” my brother’s home. Oh how it felt so good to be in a home. Real home. Boleh masak basuh baju and lepak seperti sediakala. Best!

Z started to spike a temperature. IY was still so-so like a yo-yo. Sat demam sat kebah. Sat lompat sat baring. That night, Z went to 39.8C so we had to resort to the suppository. He was shivering and clinging to me all night long. Uwaaaa mommy felt so help-less.

The next day we decided to let go of our Cardiff city sightseeing and Cardiff castle tour. We figured the weather will be too cold for the kids to be outside. So the family went on the tour without us.

It was not easy asking him to "park" his car there!

I think we spent the least time outdoor in Cardiff. Banyak masa duduk rumah je. I really made sure the kids had enough food, enough sleep and rest at home. They stayed-in watching movies or playing with their toys or doing coloring activities. My brother has so many movie collections. Sampai nak muntah dah tengok cite minions. Even kalau keluar pun just for a few hours. By lunchtime, we are already home.
