This morning, I was taken to a strawberry farm by Anne, my friend from my MARA College Banting days, who is also a superb cook. With us, there was a group of lecturers from Malaysia who are currently reading their postgraduate degrees in Loughborough and Nottingham. I'm the only one, which is NOT an academician.
After an hour in the strawberry farm, we went to a carboot sale in Gotham. As usual, I bought myself two novels, namely, The Da Vince Code (yeap, I've read this book, but at 10 pence each, I'm so tempted to read it... baby, one more time!) and No Safe Place by Richard North Patterson. This is my first time reading his.
We didn't stay long there, not because there's nothing to buy, but one of our friends, Fit, was so "carried away" to the extent, he even bought a candle holder! But it's a nice one, very huge and I personally think it's meant for a private garden or in a gazebo.
On our way to send Fit home, we stopped @Nottingham Uni for a casual picnic (ada ke picnic yang tak casual???). Oh, my... Anne made me one of my favourites i.e. lempeng with sambal sardin. She also cooked fried meehoon. Ad and the gang brought along karipap special and burgers while Nurul and Zai cooked for us nasi goreng.
While waiting for my coach, Harris has been so sweet and kind to bring me to his Uni for a brief tour and photo session. If I'm not mistaken, this is where Danny was supposed to go for his Master degree. Unfortunately... tak ada rezeki kot.
Millions thank you to Anne, Harris, Ad and the gang for your generous hospitality. And special thanks to Kak Pari and her friends for a lovely barbeque yesterday. Also, Anne, Ad, Fit and the gang for a wonderful dinner last night. Terima kasih daun keladi, jemputlah lagi...
And please do invite me for your next karaoke session. Fit (budak in the middle in the picture below), you really have a nice tone!
