Visit to our new housing area and The Story of Stuff

Yesterday was more of a relax Sunday, just lazying around. In the afternoon we decided to take a walk around our soon-to-be neighbourhood area..

Part of the neighbouring area. It's a quiet residential area. Feels so safe and calm to be walking down the streets. i've yet found where the parks are..harap2 ada..boleh main pagi2 dgn adam..

Adam finally allowed us to put a hat on him. but only when it's cold..bila masuk somewhere warm he takes it off..pandai anak mommy..

Our apartment building! it turns out it's just a few mins walk from Edgware, where all the halal butchers and grocers are, alhamdulillah..tesco and a local organic shop are just around the corner..big motivations for me to cook wholesome meals from scratch! insyaAllah..
i am really happy with our decision to live in this area, instead of in central london, where everything is so busy and chaotic and the apartments are tiny! hopefully everything goes well so we can move in on wednesday :)

in other news, adam learned to take off his own shirt yesterday. but you can tell from his expression he was getting impatient at the amount of work it took to take off one's shirt..hehe..
Very important to share this - have you all seen The Story of Stuff?
pls watch it! sangat menginsafkan...i really2 want to work at simplifying and going green as much as possible after watching it...

Hi Aida,

I hope you and your family are doing well in London. I have been silently reading your blog and enjoying your updates about UK. Keep em coming ;)

However, I really have to thank you for alerting us and sharing about The Story of Stuff. It is really an eye opener.

I am going to do an entry about it in my blog soon. Thank you too for working on simplifying your lives. You are indeed an inspiration to me and I will definitely start simplifying too =)
