I am quite lazy to start updating this blog. It has been months since last I wrote the post. These are some of the pictures that we took during our summer vacation.
Picnic at Hyde Park . Changing some money . Sleeping at the airport
Once we arrived at London, we rushed to the MSD to get something to eat. The food there was able to remind us a little bit on how Malaysian cuisine really taste. The Cendol Pulut with Ice was just… ohh.. Luckily there was no Tapai.. or else.. ohh..
The crews, excluding me..
Madrid was just a transit for us to go to the southern part of Spain. We just hang around the train station waiting for the train.
On the first night in spain, we listened to the Flamenco songs although at first I thought flamenco was all just about dancing. I even thought that the spelling was flamingo, which was same like the bird, flamingo . huhuhu.. I was amazed by the guitarist skills. His fingers moved very fast from one key to another like an F1 car speeding on a straight circuit. The Flamenco songs reminded me of one of M.Nasir’s songs, Andalusia. Cordoba is in Andalusia territory.
This Mosque Cathedral was once claimed to be a Christian Tample. After Muslim’s territory expanded to Spain, it was rebuilt to make it as a masjid. Then, Christian invaded and modify the masjid to make it as a cathedral. For more pictures and info click here.
The amazing thing about this masjid (in the past) was that the imam did not have to use a microphone to make sure that everyone in the extra large masjid hear his voice. The secret lies in the construction of the mimbar and the wall around it which enable the sound to echo to the whole masjid. I do not think any other masjid or any building nowadays has this kind of technology. I only witnessed this technology demonstrated at the Planetarium in KT or KL or somewhere in Malaysia, I am not really sure which one was that.
Just besides the Cathedral is the Alcazar Palace. The palace itself does not amaze me, but the garden in it does. It is very colourful and has variety in styles in term of range flowers and the arrangement of trees. We could not finish walking around the garden and castle but we were still satisfied to be in a cool and green place for a while. The boiling heat outside of the area was really killing. The temperature nearly reached 40’C (plymouth temperature is just around 17’C) @-@.
To be continued.. hopefully.. huhuhu
