Back in December 2009, my brother (Shah) and I finally managed to go for the long awaited trip, that we have planned since October. That is to visit our sister (Zura) in Belgium, and have her to join and guide us there. We wanted it to be a siblings-affair, that all the decisions being made during the trip, were done together. In fact, this was our first international trip , without the presence of our beloved parents. We were dead excited!!! It was winter, and we thought it would be great to experience our first snow together (not to mention that our sis kept on posting photos of hers enjoying snow, via facebook prior to our visit).
And so we left Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Schiphol Airport (for transit) before continuing our journey with another 45 minutes trip from Schiphol to Brussels Airport. The first part of the trip took about 12 hours, and I have literally sat still, for that period of time.. LOL! We arrived at Schiphol at 6am and originally to have 2 hours gap before our connecting flight to Brussels.
This is one of the earliest photos snapped during our trip. My brother, Shah.
Schiphol Air Traffic Control Tower from our gate.
Then at around 8am, it was announced that our flight will be delayed for another 2 hours due to the heavy snow. I took the liberty to walk around the airport and guess what I found?
I was like, “Hey, Seriously… Is that question meant for me?”
I’m so in love with how minimalist the clock face is. Anyway, we thought that this would be the time for us to board our flight. Just to realize that our flight got delayed for another hour. I spent the final hour playing Tap Tap Revenge 3 on my iPhone. Sweet deal~ We finally board the airplane at around 11.30am, and set our foot on Brussels Airport at almost 1pm. My sister and her friend were waiting for us at the arrival hall, and we headed straight back to her crib. Owh, by this time, Shah’s friend, Azri came to joined us in Brussels. Well, he started his journey way earlier than us, ALONE!!!!
After lunch, My sister left for work and the three of us decided to visit a park nearby to experience the real -6°c..
and of course, it would be crazy not to snow slide when everyone does!!
This pretty much summarizes my first log of the trip. More travel logs and photos to follow suit. WHEE~!! For the time being, do leave me some comments aite?
