KL-AMS-MEX-AMS-KL (Chapter One)


Ticket confirmed. Hotel confirmed. Travel advance confirmed.

But i still couldn't believe that I'd be flying to Mexico. Lived and worked there for a couple of weeks. I felt so grateful and excited. It's like one of a life time experience, right!

My mom cooked for me the most delicious sambal ikan bilis and kept in a quite big Tupperware (she scared that I akan kebuluran kat sana :)) while my fiance's dad lent me his luggage bag, travel adapter and also bought me a book titled MEXICO. Sweet.

I left Kuala Lumpur on 1st April 2006 at midnight. Since it was my first ever time leaving the country, agak lama pulak tu and very very very far..the whole family member, few uncles & aunties  and also fiance's family sent me at the airport (nasib baik tak satu kampung :p). 

When i met my 2 other colleagues at the check-in counter, they wondered what did i bring inside a huge sealed box next to my luggage beg. The answer was Maggie Mee. I imagined myself would eat them day and night, so if 30 over days times 2... 60 over packets of Maggie. Maunya tak sekotak??? dengan Nescafe 3 in 1 lagi.. sambal ikan bilis lagi.. =D 

Hai Ling and Ng LOLed at me.

"Nuurill, you wanna go a year meh?" 

"Hey! i first time ma... U ols can sedap-sedap eat chicken. I eat maggie chicken ok la kan!" :)

When I was about to leave the departure hall to the gate, everybody made a circle surrounded me to bit good bye. Confirmla i cried so much! Who knows that would be the last time I saw them. 

My mom whispered at my ear.

"Kak Yong kamu tu darah manis. Jaga diri baik-baik. Kamu jangan gatei dengan oghang sana walaupun hensem macam boipren maria mercedes tu. (hahaha!). Kamu jangan tinggei solat. Kamu doa banyok-banyok Allah lindung kamu"

I hugged my mom harder.

Hai Ling and Ng LOLed at me again. Ciss cake sungguh tau! :)

And then, next to my mom was my future husband. 
Hei confirmla tak peluk!!. :P 

We're speechless. 


"Take care"

But then i heard my mom's voice..

"Itu aje kamu cakap??"

Oh mamaKu (slap forehead). My fiance's mom smiled widely at us.

"Diorang malu tu kot Kak Ana"

Memang la malu. Tapi dalam hati gila tak malu ok! I siap doa sungguh-sungguh semua Allah panjangkan umur ku, safely return back home and dapat kahwin dengan dia. :) Ga-Alif-Ta-Alif-Lam.. haha. Yes, we're tentatively getting married in 2 months time.

At 11.45pm, i flied to Amsterdam via KLM. Segala doa baca.Seram sejuk badan. I didn't sleep at all for that 12 hours flight. Hai Ling who sat next to me was the other way around. She just woke up when the food came and the moment she finished her desserts, she ZzzzZZZZ. How easy! :)

The plan touched down Amsterdam at the very early morning of 2nd April 2006. At 18 degrees, It was very cold and i was almost frozen. :P We have 6 hours to visit the central before checking in the next 13 hours flight to Mexico City.

We took train from the Schiphol airport to Amsterdam Central. Along the way, I almost cried when i saw windmill here and there. Rasa macam tak percaya okeh! :P

It was raining cats and dogs when we reached the Central. First thing we did was to visit the Tourist Information Office. Here we were received the map of the city, interesting places, how to get there by tram and the tram schedule. Because of the rain, we didn't get much chance to visit many places but we promised each other that we gonna re-visit the city the next month when we returned from Mexico.

Owh Amsterdam is really a very beautiful place!!
Let me share some photos with you.


ps: Muka mu sunguh remaja, Nuurill.  X boleh blah. 

Ok let's get back a little bit more to Amsterdam. :P

Everyone in this world mostly knows that Tulips are the symbol of Holland. At every market in the Amsterdam Central you gonna find beribu-ribu lemon of tulips. Too Awesome!!! We hoped by the time we came down here again the next month, we could visit the Keukenhof, the world's largest Tulips garden. (We did and the place was Superb!! Will tell about it later k).

After 12 hours from KLIA to Amsterdam + 9 hours Transit in Amsterdam + another 13 hours from Amsterdam to Mexico City + 2 hours Transit in Mexico City + 1.5 hour from Mexico City to Guadalajara, I was finally arrived the destination and looked like a zombie.  

Syukur Ya Tuhan for such an opportunity given to me. My life and my career in Mexico bounded in such a wonderful memory. I couldn't be thankful enough.
