Visiting the Floating Village of Brockholes, England

Alhamdulillah ni dah trip kali kedua kitorang! Dan lagi best sebab empat hari weh! Trip dulu sehari je. Pastu paling best, lepas habis trip kitorang cuti wooo, sebab reading week haha. Apa ada hal reading week kitorang lecture sehari je dalam seminggu nak revise apa lah sangat haha. 

Dulu senior pernah cerita ambil senibina ni best sebab banyak field trip haha. Tapi tu je lah yang betul-betul best. 

Kitorang singgah Brockholes ni masa dalam perjalanan ke Glasgow. Lokasi dia dekat Junction 31, M6 Samlesbury, Preston. Haa, tau tak kat mana tu. Aku pun tak tau haha sebab jalan masuk nampak macam hutan je, tetiba dah sampai. Cuma hujan renyai-renyai masa kitorang sampai, so yeah. 

Terima lah gambar-gambar saya yang masih tak pandai adjust setting camera haha.

Nampak tak yang dia terapung? Erm, sebenarnya dia terapung. 

Haaa macamana dia terapung yang membuatkan saya teruja. Nanti saya cerita lebih lanjut.

Halloween in Sheffield, England.

I sort of experienced a Halloween night the other day. A festivity that happened every 31 October each year. 

Initially I actually have no plan that night (other than laying in my bed) lagipun aku rasa macam eh boleh ke sambut Halloween ni. But it turned out that my friend, Rubi, asked me if I wanted to do her Halloween make-up, which of course I am kinda excited to do it. Since the day I came to UK, I've already felt like its a waste if all along I didn't learn nor witness their culture. And by the way, I first talked to Rubi because I thought she's Malaysian. I guess I'm terrible in guessing people's identity, because she is actually from Peru haha, and I discovered that Perubian has a sawo matang skin like us as well. And thats basically how our friendship grew. And how I experienced a Halloween night.

We (as in me and my housemates) had some effort in following their culture too, that we were expecting kids to do some tricks or treats, and so, of course we prepared some candies with us. But amazingly and sadly, I met no kids at all!

And fyi, when I said I experienced a Halloween night, its just I went out to see the people and that's all haha. I felt like it was a Comic Fiesta event where everyone wear scary or ghostly costumes everywhere, and it was amazing because EVERYONE is cosplaying (including the folk at all shops).

Yes basically that is all how I felt Halloween is celebrated for = cosplay.

I sort of felt like an achievement too for going out that night because if its not halloween night, going out after 9pm at certain streets is sort of a no no for us girls here in the UK since there's danger of running into drunk people so urgh (esp on weekends).

Some random students we bumped across.

Yes, the event is in our very own Student Union.

I dont go in because I dont have the ticket? Sold out a month before October haha.

The result! Kinda!
