Not about me this time: Nostalgic Trip to Cardiff

This weekend Uncle and Auntie De completed their 2 week tour around the UK starting from Wrexham, to Southampton, Coventry, Stratford Upon Avon, Essex, Cardiff then finally back to Wrexham. They seemed to really enjoy themselves, especially in Cardiff. The inbox of my phone today has been completely spammed from Auntie De's picture messages so I decided to pay Uncle and Auntie De a tribute and post her pictures on a tabblo:

Tabblo: Uncle and Auntie De

Pictures
Top: The new Borders & Starbucks in Llantrisant, where Uncle & Auntie De used to stay. Show's how much Llantrisant has changed.

Tenkaichi:
A Japanese noodle bar where we often rendesvous. We all have our favourites. Uncle De loves the bento box (so do I), but my favourite is the Sea Food Ramen. Mmmmmm.

The singing guy:
We used to always see this guy singing at the town centre. And he's still singing it seems.

House:
Our house, full of memories .... sigh. Sarah was brought up there. And friends used to visit EVERY weekend. For finals, we met up there for our study group.

Bottom:
Poor, tired Safiya. Hope she enjoyed visiting the place where Auntie De carried Emyr.

Looks fun!! Wish we were there too!

By the way, I learnt a bit (ok la, 3 words..) of Hokkien at work.. and 'Ho Fun' means "Oh! serabutnya kepala otak ku!!!" or " Arghh! Frustnya!".. Tak tau la owner restaurant tu deliberately named the restaurant that way..

eh.. I bukan ke the name of the restaurant "Riveside Cantonese"... 'ho fun' tu dtg dr mana? Pls, correct me if I am wrong, bcoz I think was talking nonsense in my previous comment..

tak sangka mamat tu ada lagi kan? heehee.. guna microfone hijau dia tu. tapi betul, kan, rain or shine, mesti ada je mamat tu. masa tu tgh nyanyi lagu frank sinatra.
