Trip to Paris and London 2015 - Day 13 - London (Oxford Street and Harrods)

23 September 2015 (Wednesday)

It was our second last day in London *sobs*. We have covered alllll the places we wanted to cover so it was planned that today we were to spend time only at 2 places - Oxford Street and Harrods ₤_

In the morning my mom offered to take care of the 2Ks at the apartment and let us husband and wife do our shopping :) (I LOVE MY MOM SO VERY MUCH! ❤) coz the other day when we went to Oxford Street we had a hard time to shop having the 2Ks around at the same time. The in-laws pulak decided to go to the Camden Town. So that morning after breakfast mom+2Ks chilled at the apartment, me and hubs went to Oxford Street and in-laws went to Camden Town. We agreed to regroup at Harrods at noon.

Me-time for us! :)
Lunch - we had a takeaways from the restaurant below our apartment (tak ingat nama restaurant! But kat area situ memang banyak options pun in terms of halal food :)). After did our shopping, tapau the food, and we went back to the apartment to have lunch together with my mom and 2Ks. After dah settle semua then only we made our move to Harrods.

Beautiful lift!

The must-take picture when at Harrods :D
So impressive that they had a section specially made up in conjunction of the Hari Raya Aidil Adha. That's nice!
Laduree section was so spacious, empty and beautiful! So unlike the one in Paris.
So we (well, more like, me) had a repeat on the yummy macarons! :P (Ok fine, here's a confession. I accidentally have left the one we purchased at Champs Elysees the other day at our hotel fridge in Disneyland! *_* Not all as we have eaten some, I think ada 3-4 pieces left kot T_T)
Cravings satisfied :) Although the price in London is more ex than the one in Paris huhu..
I also bought the Walkers shortbread - the Princess Charlotte edition :)

Lepas dah settle kat Harrods, we, as in my little family have planned to bring 2Ks to Hamley's at the Oxford Street (kids need to shop too! hehe). And the 2 SiLs also wanted to have another go at Oxford Street. BiL and wife wanted to just jalan2 free and easy. The 2 mothers pulak said they rather stay at the apartment, packing and just resting. So all of us did just that. Berpecah la kami ikut haluan dan selera masing2 :)

Muka happy dapat masuk in their own world of heaven :) They made us promise to bring them to all the 5 levels. Haha. Hubs took that one big Hamley's bag and told the kids they can put whatever toys they wanted but in the end they were allowed to buy only 3 toys each. Aiyo not sure whether that's a wise move but hubs said the kids will learn some lessons from that - main one: they needed to know that they cannot have it all in life, gitu :D Aye aye husband!
With the royal families in Hamley's :)

Sampai terteleng2 kepala 2Ks tengok abah main kereta control tu. Hehe. The heeeeuge toy store is so hip and happening! The staff were all very kids-friendly and there were SO many toys! I wasn't sure how the heck the kids gonna choose just 3 toys from all the 5 levels filled with toys :D
It's time to take out all the toys from the bag for final selection! LOL.
Hubs probably said - "Choose wisely, kids".. :D
Kazim's negotiation skill.. HAHAHAHA :D The elder brother was more calm and composed (but who knows what went through his mind kan.. haha.. muka masam semacam je tu..:P)

Abah dah pening kepala dah tengok anak2 confused taktau nak pilih mana satu...
All's good in the end. Happy kids happy parents ♥ ♡ ♥ ♡ ♥ ♡

Lepas dah settle kat Hamley's, we continued jalan2 kat Oxford Street and did some more shopping before calling it a day. We had to go back to apartment coz there's packing needed to be done! Uwaaaaa masa ni tiba2 rasa gosh how come time passed by so fast... *sigh*
That night - sorting out 'kuih raya' sempena Hari Raya Haji besoknye. Hehe. The white chocolate & macademia is to-die-for!
Laying out alllll the items for hubs to pack. Hihi. That's his area of expertise so I left it all to him on how to fit everything into the luggage we had :)

Okie dokie, that's all for day 13. I wanted to include day 14 the finale into this entry as well but I thought our final day there deserves an entry of its own. So, till next!
