On the first day of this year, I went to the London’s New Year’s Day Parade. There was more than 10,000 performers from across the continents participated in the 2-mile-route parade making this is the biggest event of its kind in the world.
The weather was too cold. Therefore, I couldn’t hold the camera properly. The temperature was below 5 °C. The position of the sun is too low. That was the main reason I couldn’t take clearer images because the main source of light was blocked by the buildings.
The night after Christmas, I was rushing from my home to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) (IATA: KUL, ICAO: WMKK) in Sepang, Malaysia to get a transit flight to Abu Dhabi International Airport with Airbus A340-600 by Etihad Airways.
The long tiring journey from Kuala Lumpur to Abu Dhabi took about 7 hours 20 minutes. The distance between these two cities is about 5,612 kilometers. There is nothing to see through out the window except the dark starry sky. I have spent most of my free time watching movies and playing games using the media player provided inside the cabin.

Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens provides many varieties of fauna such as squirrels, pigeons, robin, dunnocks, tits, butterflies, buzzard, Egyptian geese, white swan and black swan. You can hear the birds singing while you walk. It is a suitable place for peace of mind seeker. This place is very relaxing.

Firstly, I would like to say sorry because I abandoned this blog for quite long time. I didn’t update this blog about almost 3 months because I was too busy with meetings.
Secondly, I’m proudly to announce I will travel to Abu Dhabi for transit with Airbus A340-600 Etihad Airways departing from KLIA on Saturday morning (December 26, 2009). Just one day after the Christmas. After that I will fly to London Heathrow Airport. I’m going to stay at Hyde Park in London until next year. I cannot wait to feel the white snow. This year I’m going to celebrate New Year in Greenwich!
I promise starting from next year I will update this blog more frequently. Don’t forget to check my blog after New Year. See you all!
