I'm back from my 3 week holiday in London ! And right now it's 7:18 in the morning and I'm in my bed waiting for everyone to wake up so I can have breakfast. But by the looks of it, I'm gonna have to wait a few more house til everyone actually does. Jet lag is no one's friend.
London was amazing, of course. Couldn't have enjoyed myself more. Despite the cold and bitter weather, I had the best time there! So thankful to both my parents for everything. We don't often go for holidays abroad because it's super expensive and well, yeah, that's pretty much it. If we had all the money in the world, I'm pretty sure my dad would have brought us everywhere by now. But alas, money comes in the way and every year since we were 8, we'd spend our school holidays at home or to nearby local destinations (Penang, Langkawi, Singapore). So London was a big deal. It might not be for someone else because I mean, it seems to me that year by year most Malaysians opt for the UK for their winter holidays.
I felt bad for the money being spent (though I have the best grandparents in the WORLD who gave us some pocket money for our shopping) because let's face it, London's currency is absurdly mahal. Even food got to be so expensive!! And as much as you tell yourself to not convert everything everytime (because that'll just drive you around the bend), you can't help yourself but do it anyway.
So, if you're an avid traveler and go on a holiday every year abroad, please say thank you to your parents. It's the least you can do for everything they've spent throughout the trip. Not everyone is as rich to be taken on a nice holiday every year, y'know! :)
