A day out.


At Trafalgar square, was sunny and nice.

Covent Garden.

How handsome!!!!

Concert....everything for money!!

Last couple of days I had very nice times with friends who decided to gather from different places: Spain, Manchester, Birmingham, and of course London. Saying that; we spent very nice times in walking visits from Covent Garden to Trafalgar Square ending in Westminster area and London eye, topping that up by having entertaining lunch at one of resturants in Knightsbridge. While walking and feet aching I got a call...sounded a bit weird initialy then I realised it was a friend who I did not see for 4 years, he used to be my senior at work. Oh It was astonshing surprise to me really, after how are you and what did you do, we agreed to meet up with his family and kids.

Happy birthday Tala

Not after long...I had to be off to my place....It's the birthday of Tala, my neighbour's daughter who is 11. I think Tala felt like we are going to prepare something at some point ...but none was of sure. However, I was late for preparations, for this reason, my part was to bring the strawberries with me that we need to use with the chocolate fountain, actually we needed 6 packs. As I arrived Tesco and guess what..I found the strawberry section empty...That shocked me, I was already running late and need strawberries...asked one of the staff who answered in a robot way...sorry, we ran out of them, come tomorrow....I gazed at him and said and in firm language....I can not go home without strawberry. He just smiled and said..Ok, try Sainsbury...I was running late ..went to Sainsbury...took me like 15 minutes to reach there...Hurry up hurry up ....get 6 packs...went home to find friends prepared the rest..Tala came afterwards and was surprised( or at least showed herself as)...everybody sang...Happy Birthday To you, Happy birthday To Tala..lots of food, funn , games. The best bit was the Pasta parcil where one of the kids had to dance a monkey dance. My God how that 5 year old Haya danced really as a monkey was so funny to the death.
After the birthday party ended I went home thinking of my busy day..Alhamdullah for having friends, I do not think I could afford life without them really.

London is so nice when you do the tourists stuff.

the child hitting the Pinata with the wooden spoon is not blind folded :o)
who smashed it at the end? did you manage to get any of the sweets?

Hi Anglo:

We sort of helped kids to smash the Pinata, some of them were so young, we had our part as well but I think Gaberiella or Trad done it at the end...LOL, It was so hard for them alone..the little kid called Kenndy..his mum did not give permission to put his full photo which I do not know why ....He was soooo cute, I saw his tears when the Pasta Parcil turns females presents for him as he had to give them to his sister.
Of course I had my sweets, I was so full....
