why honey'baby'moon : because we haven't got the chance to go for a real honeymoon since married. we did went for a mini honeymoon which was sponspored by his aunty in Tanjong Jara Resort, T'ganu after the wedding which was Best la, kata free! and 'baby' -because I was 4.5 months pregnant while on this vacation.. which I think after this, no more travelling until baby is a lil bit big =)
5.5.2010 : Dublin is one of the country affected with the volcanic-ash from Iceland-no fly zone during April-May which totally made us sgt worried if our flights were cancelled too. So even a few weeks before we did not really planned the trip n book hotels bcuz we might just postponed since there was so much of uncertainty...Sue pun asyik nak sleep n laptop allergic so i left everything to my husband to plan/book/manage everything for this trip. kinda giving him space to suprise me! =)
On the day itself, all flights are cancelled! except for those flights to fly to the U.S as we are going to the opposite way from the volcanic ash!. Alhamdullilah, we are definitely the lucky ones! last minute packing pulak tu. haha.
Day 1:after 6 hours from Dublin, we arrived JFK airport, excited sgt bcuz dah lama nak pergi US asyik postponed, I got my US visa dah 2 years ago, but finally arrived! so the first thing we saw was rows of rows of NYC yellow cabs..
day 2..post continue after a month!..if not this post will never be completed and only memories remains..
ok day 2, weather forecasted will be a stormy afternoon in manhattan, so we decided we better shop (excuse sbb tak sabar to go to the Woodbury Common), so off we went from morning after breakfast, walked a few blocks to get the bus. The bus fare cost $42 each for 45 minutes drive je. oh goshh mahal giler for 2 dah $84! but no other options..
over 220 shops, we spent 11 hours there..however dpt cover berapa percent jer, cuz tooo huge and we only picked n choose which shop je nak masuk. overall, mmg nak la nak pengsan cuz the prices are really cheap.. but not labels from europe like chanel, dior, d&g tak payah masuk 1. cuz very limited and i found it rather expensive. so the ones to go is coach, juicy, dkny..guess... hasil tangkapan 7 coach handbags and only 1 juicy! the rest are dresses, tops and jeans.. sgt hectic shopping we forgot to take photos! malam tu i couldnt move anymore, i went to bed straight after. we wish we could spend more time there, cuz barang baby tak sempat nak tgk pun!
so at last, we had the opportunity to see statue of liberty since small tgk kat tv je. the statue was actually a gift from french ppl, originally it was in bronze colour, due to sea salt/water, it turned green as we sees it today!
flew to Los Angeles, 6 hours flight..
day 5-day 8 : Los Angeles, California (next post)
day 9 - day 13 : Las Vegas, Nevada (next post)
Day 14: Back in New York after 5 hours flight from Las Vegas. As we arrived so early in the morning, we could not check-in the hotel not until 3 pm, so we went to our friend's apartment to pick up the bag and tumpang sekejap at the apartment until we can check-in our hotel yg ke-8 ni. His wife is very pleasant siap buatkan lunch for us.. thank you for the hospitality as we are so tired after 2 weeks holiday, at this stage nak balik rumah and rest. The weather was very wet and strong wind, we could not able to jalan jalan even we wanted so, so we rest for the whole day, malam kluar to get dinner, but it was raining heavily, we kluar sekejap je, anyway, we thought we had enough fun..the body needed to rest before our flight back to Dublin for 6 hours tomorrow..
back to Dublin...
alhamdullilah, everything went as smooth as planned, even better.. we glad we did the trips before i get soo big, and I think we are ready to have the baby, no more jalan for quite some time after this.. until baby besar skit =), insyaAllah.. i had a really great time during our honey'baby' moon, thank you to mr.hubby for being so brilliantly well jaga his pregnant wife, and keep her 'fine and happy' all the time during the trip.. ♥ him loadss...
