Hanging out with papad..

Arch of Constantine

In front of Colosseum.. we decided to take a guided tour and pay an extra of 8 euros just so we didnt hv to queue for the entry ticket... the queue to get in was wayyyy tooo longggg so what did we do?? pay extra lol

I bet Sonia was wondering what on earth shes looking at hahahha

Too hottttt.... Too biggggg was among her fav words on this trip!

Imagine how long has this building been standing and how strong the construction was back then... simply awesome... and the floor... ceilings - all using marble tiles - so said the tour guide of cos!

This photo was taken fm the hop on and hop off bus that takes us around Rome.. u pay like 17 euros for a 24hrs pass.. View towards St Peter's Square and the Vatican.

St Peter's Square with the Obelisco Vaticano..

This square has the largest number of visitors in the world!

The Tiber River - with the San Giovanni dei Fiorentini Church

Area Sacra - 4 old temples discovered during excavation in the 1920s

HUGE in real life... Piazza Venezia - Romans refer to it as a wedding cake bec of the shape and colour...

Oh my goodness... I really really love bruschetta .. cud hv this for brekkie, lunch and dinner lol

Papa smitten by the Italian sales girl.. got all our souvenirs fm her shop only to find out that we paid too much for the colosseum miniature hehehe

Just like in any other country.. thats how chestnuts are roasted except in sg u see Apek roasting it hahaha... oh the chestnuts.. they are humongous!

Trevi Fountain

The only city where u can see nun and priest every where u look...

.... and also McDonalds.. they are everywhere!

Circus Maximus - sports field... used during the Roman time- still being used now... it cud hold during its time almost 380 thousand visitors!

Dont leave home without Papad ey...

Look at her... u cannot loose sight of this girl... shes super independent and wud just walk and run... not good when ur in some malls or supermarket.. especially if ur overseas

Well ok.. I've done my homework... I finally edit the captions hehhe

Small and petite bila stand next to my hb but in Italy i sama height with the rest hahahah... Sonia tinggi for her age.. follow papa's genes... oh bila u say like that i teringat ape bapak mertua ku kata bef kita kawin... (i tulis dalam bahasa ok...banyak spy) "Rima kau ni terlalu kontot untuk anak aku" ahhhh tuuu dia orang Austria bila berkata.. sungguh power one... dia lupa perfume yg mahal selalu comes in small bottles kah kah kah
