day 04 and 05 :) Istanbul '07 trip

Day 04

Hoho.. abah kelihatan comel

Syukri arrived yesterday..... and we took a taxi back to the hotel since the hotel's transport didn't go back to the Hotel after sending us to the Airport... so... we met Ali!!! Mr Taxi Driver....

Ini Mr Ali

He's a nice man.... a Fenarbahce's supporter, Muslim and he also gave us discount since we're Muslim. Hahaha..... instead of 38 Lira on the meter, he only asked for 30 Lira. Oww... rejeki rejeki!!!!

That morning.....

Somewhere near Spice Bazaar

We arrived at the Hotel.... Syukri needed some rest before we start our journey that evening. Syukri met all my family members.... around 6.30... we started our walk. We walked along the road to the Blue Mosque.... Syukri looked sooo excited yesterday... and his Camera was turned on throughout the journey....

Syukri cakap "Cerie seh budak kecik nie..."

Mak wit her new friends..

First destination.. a garden right before The Blue Mosque.... we took so many pictures yesterday and the garden was one of the places involved. Hurm..... sooo many funny pictures.. HHAA...

Day 05

Macam model betul lah.. HAHA

Yeeha.. Thanx Syukri!! huhu

We woke up late..... had breakfast around 8 o'clock and prepared ourselves for another journey today! Since mak, abah and Hafif were going to another place, Me, Syukri, Izzat and Afiq terpaksa berdikari berjalan jalan sendirian.....

Siap sedia nak breakfast dan pegi keluar!



Bukan main anak murid ngan cikgu nie...

And our first destination is........... The Blue Mosque again... hurm..... Syukri ni tak puas hati.... okaylah.... we spent about 3 hours only at the Blue Mosque okeh!!! Syukri ni suke sangat bergambar!!!!

From Blue Mosque.. after being entertained by a bunch of school kids, Izzat and Afiq decided to go back to the Hotel..... so left me and Syukri wondering around the city... just the two of us! ahA! Soo sweet~ we bought some rice (beras), and then went inside the Haghia Sofia.... owh I felt dissappointed when seeing The Haghia Sofia was under construction.. so.... sedih nye laaa.. benci! mengganggu!

Haghia Sofia...

After feelig a bit tired.... since my injured legs are not fully recovered and Syukri's camera gone out of batteries, we've decided to go back. After having our evening tea at Starbuck Istanbul... we headed back to the Hotel... eating Ayam Golek and est for a while.. waiting for tonight's agenda.

Day 002 :) Istanbul Trip

After being stranded in Dubai airport for 9 hours.... we finally took off for Istanbul! yeay!!.... we landed at Attaturk International Airport around 5 pm (Local time..)

First thing after we landed.. we rushed quickly to the Imigration! owh.. u dont wanna be in a long queue in Attaturk's imigration!! DOI.... hahaha... When we came out of the airport.. there's a man holding my dad's name.. "MR ROSHLI SYAM" haha.. lawak lawak... btol ke tu name ayah saye?? haha!...

Owh.. I remembered the same time I was on the same road last year.. from air port.. there was a big explosion at the air port... if u guys still remember laaa.... and I was right in front of the Exploded building yesterday when I had a grinned smile on my face... haha.. thinking of the tragedy.huhu....

We arrived at Inter Hotel Istanbul. Owh.. there are some changes in the hotel. some improvements.. cheywah.. bagus bagus.... Our rooms were on the first floor... room 102 and 103.

The restaurant.. where I met those 2 old men

Around 6pm... mak asked me to go and find some breads and mineral waters. So... I went out... wondering around Istanbul. owh FYI... in Istanbul.... every Sunday, all the shops are closed! even the Grand Bazaar closed on Sunday. Hmm.... susah nie.... but I kept on searching and looking for a grocery which is open on Sunday. Luckily there were 2 men in front of this Restaurant who were smoking. I asked them "ne rede dakkal??" haha meaning "mane kedai runcit berhampiran?" owh and they pointed me to a direction... I followed and founded one! whee!! thanx org tua!

6 pm.. Istanbul... dull kan??
