Trip started at 5 a.m. Train ride was as usual ok, i slept like i was dead. We went to Domodedovo airport via metro and van. The van fres are rather cheap, 100rub. The airport has been renovated very well, its very much bigger. The best part of leaving Moscow was there was no problem like last year(THANK GOD!!!) In the plane, i cudn’t eat the cold sandwich. I hv no idea y, i just felt nauseated(mengadekan, dahla org bagi makan je la!) Therefore my sandwich went to Teoh Kok Meng. We reached Tegal airport, Berlin and i tried to withdraw. Tapi tak boleh :(. I was so sad. I borrowed money from Sevvanthee.
That nite we ate for the very first time, CURRYWURST!
It was tepi jalan stall punya, n damn it was tasty. It was the best 1.80euro i spent.
By the way our hostel was really cekap. We loved it.

We had a nice walk this morning.All the way from our hostel to the Branderburg gate. We took pics and me, 7t n nava were spotting for the souvenier shops along the way. We went into one of the big shops n i found a very nice bag for Yasshni. I know she she is going to love it. I wasnt planning on getting any souveniers from Berlin cos i was here last year, but this bag is a MUST!!!
Today actually we will be splitting into 2 groups, Me, 7t n Nava one group then shari n kok meng the other. This is cos Shari has not been to Berlin yet n TKM is the loyal n faithful bf. WE girls on the other hand, were going to Sacchasenhausen trip. It was a former concentration camp. After having breakfast together we headed our separate ways.
The trip cost us 20 euros.The concentration camp for me was a important experience. We find out about how ppl hv suffered in the hands of their own countrymen. I did not cry but i felt really sad. Its horrifying even to hv to listen to what was done to the prisoners, imagine living thru it everyday till ur last breath.
I will write about it in another entry cos there are so many pics and stories to tell u. Before the trip, the tour guide asked us to buy for ourselves sum lunch but we didnt want anything cos we just had a good breakfast.
But as we exited the building i found my most frequently visited place in the whole wide world, McD. Nava said “Oh no, Maal dun go ok. we jus had b’fast. I know u love that place but dun go, ok, it will be hard to get u out” She was rite, i cant resist burgers, look at my size rite.
Anyways aftert the trip, we went back to the Gate. From there we went back to our hostel and at the same time revisited the bag shops. I bought for my sister that MUST HAVE bag, n 7t n Nava were on a shopping spree to buy themselves bags too. So i followed. Well these girls really can shop, thats one thing for sure. I can too when i want. Hehe pandai2x mengatakan orang sendiri pun satu.
After shopping we went back to the hostel. On the way there wr many Indian restaurant. A waiter from one of the restaurant said to us loudly “Desi ka khana, pardesi me khaiye(i hope my hindi is rite but i know he meant eat ur local food in a foreign country)” .
I just laughed but didnt answer him, i was just too lazy n not bothered. I wanted to tell him I m not ur “desi log” in hindi, but not nice oso kan. Cos at the end of the day i m not just Malaysian, i am still described as Malaysian Indian by my own ppl.
That nite all of us went out for dinner. I cried in silence wen i saw the price of the meals in the restaurant. Well the best way to forget ur sadness is by gossiping. Hehe we shared sumgreat gossips that day. Well its not everyday that u hv an expensive dinner filled with luscious gossips in Berlin with 5 of ur good frenz!
here are sum pics!
