Salam...kembara terakhir..sebelum pulang ke Malaysia keesokan harinya.
Bergambar kenangan di airbnb terakhir di Ballymena,Belfast..


Keluar & tinjau apa ada kat backyard

Cantik kawasan luar rumah
Ada pokok epal
Family pic
Bergerak pulang ke Dublin
Lady driver nak merasa bawak BMW
Seronok lah tew!

Sebelum tu...jom round2 Belfast City.Nampak satu perarakan keagamaan...we had no clues...tujuan perarakan ni...takpelah..ambik saja foto buat kenangan







Kemudian...kita berjalan ke Belfast City Hall...the stunning landmark of Northern Ireland

The hall’s primary use is for the city council to gather and discuss policies


Titanic Memorial Garden

It bears the names of all perished passengers of Titanic.Gambar from google

Kubah hijau - simbol kebanggaan Belfast





Titanic...our next destination
Sebenarnya,tempat ni merupakan muzium...boleh tengok pameran tentang sejarah shipmaking dan legasi perindustrian yang ditinggalkan oleh Harland & Wolff (shipbuilders)

3 out of 9 galleries showcase about Titanic Ship.

The World's Leading Tourist Attraction at the prestigious World Travel Awards in 2016

Kawasan bersebelahan Titanic Belfast

Kami cuma berlegar-legar di luar je..tak masuk sebab kekangan masa & kewangan (macam biasalah...hu hu)

Tiket masuk £18.50/adult.Kanak-kanak bawah 16 tahun £8/pax
Family 2A2C- £ 45

Kalau nak masuk ballroom area,kena ambik separate pakej dining dalam
£27.50- £ 33 /pax...aduyai!  Gambar from google 

Di sinilah tempatnya Titanic di design,dibina & dilancarkan perasmiannya pada 1912



Orang kata,kalau pergi Belfast,jangan lupa singgah di St George's Market



Macam pasar tani lah




Meneruskan perjalanan pulang ke Dublin.Selesai solat jama' Zuhur & Asar,kami naik bas seterusnya  menapak keluar ke city untuk lunch.

Memang kami tak naik kereta,memandangkan pada hari tersebut Pope St Francis arrived at Dublin for World Meeting of Families 2018.Ni memang international Catholic event that takes place every 3 years...dijangkakan lebih 1/2 juta pengikut (luar & dalam Ireland) akan turun ke Dublin. 


Lunch di Wok In

Restoren peberet budak2 RCSI


Makanan panas2 & pedas (ask for extreme hot!)




Dah kenyang,kami masuk ke Asian Market..cari groceries sikit...food ration yang dibawak dah habis.Jom tengok apa ada dalam ni

Makanan disusun mengikut countries in Asia

Of coz lah..kita cari kat Malaysia section



Brahim pon ada sini..harga dalam €1.50,oklah tu..lebih kurang harga kat Msia

Orang kaya je boleh makan nih...€14 sekilo!


Destinasi terakhir...Trinity College.

2 benda yang famous di Trinity College nih...1.Its old library yang menjadi inspirasi kepada Long Room dalam cerita Harry Potter 2. The Book of Kells

Ramai betul umat yang berkumpul kat Trinity College..the reason..ada ceremony  sempena kedatangan Pope ke Dublin

Gate depan ditutup...kecewa  tak dapat masuk!

Pas tu guard bagi tau...boleh masuk dari another entrance...yahoo!


Sebenarnya,kalau ada student Trinity...dia boleh bawa 2 guests masuk ke dalam kolej for free (tapi ada kuota berapa kali boleh bawak per year).Masa kami bercuti...semua kawan-kawan Bang Bil yang study kat Trinity ni tengah bercuti di Malaysia...so,kena bayarlah..

Beratur nak beli tiket

Tapi,disebabkan penjual tiket tu get spelled by Mama's (& Bang Bil's) charm...he allowed us to pay for family package je..Kid #1 & #2 considered as 'student Trinity' (for that day!).Alhamdulillah...rezeki.

Harga tiketWe paid family package je-28 Euro
Book of Kells ni dah dipamerkan di Old Library,Trinity College sejak pertengahan kurun ke 19 lagi.Sebenarnya,ia adalah naskah Bible yang terdiri dari 4 gospels.

Saiz buku 13" x 10 "- painfully handwritten and illustrated by monks

Jangan buang banyak masa kat sini...terlalu ramai yang datang tengok..macamla paham baca Latin..hi hi
The highlight of the tour..the Long Room,off course!

Harry Potter scene was never shot here...but the look of Hogwart's Library was inspired by this Old Library at Trinity.

The oldest and largest library in Ireland
Sangat cantik & impressive!

Buku-buku disusun mengikut saiz dan alphabet
Ada lebih kurang 200,000 old books!
Kawasan sekitar Trinity College.





Sebelum pulang ke rumah...singgah jap kat Chicken Hut,our favourite restaurant...kira macam KFC lah (sini takde KFC halal).




Kat Dublin ni,tak kira kita order single dish ke...ala cart ke..jumbo pack ke...memang akan dibagi 2 dipping sauce aje.Cuma hari tu...orang kedai tu suka tengok muka anak bongsu kami,dia bagi extra 5 dipping sauces...Alhamdulillah.Sos tomato yang peket-peket kecik memang ada dibekalkan..Sos cili ,memang tak de ya kat obersea..tu kat Malaysia jer!

The menu..

Last day kat airport...selepas pulangkan kereta sewa...lepak-lepak ..

Last air tangan mama (for  now)...nasi goreng sardin

It's time to say goodbye to Bang Bil!



Take care Bil...inshaa Allah kita jumpa lagi.

Ya Allah....jagakan dia untuk kami.Aminnnnn
