Belated Birthday Seprais Party ke tidokkk?

It was supposed to be a belated birthday surprise party but a teeny-weeny blue bird accidentally spilled the beans earlier..Haha that was hilarious..Anyways it started with an event plan by my housemates, Darwin and Adam. They decided on celebrating Hakim's and my birthday which fall on 27th January and 12th February. It was a lil bit belated birthday party because everyone was busy with their exams and nothing could be planned earlier.

It was a small gathering with friends from Krefeld, Duisburg and Bochum that took place few days ago. They decided on having a Raclette birthday party..It was perfect! Oh I love Raclette! It's fun and exciting!
Oh to make things interesting, Darwin and Adam made a special cake for Hakim and I...Terharu sangat ok. But they did ask for my supervision though..haha..chomeyl je..

Enough with the talking, let's enjoy the pictures!

Selamat & Vanakkam Köln!

Köln a.k.a Cologne is like my second home in Germany. Even though there are other bigger cities such as Essen and Düsseldorf closer to my place to hang out and shop, I would still choose Köln as a place to have fun. One of the factors would be that I'm already familiar with the city. I did my preparation course for about 7 months in Köln and have been coming to this city countless number of times throughout the 3 years period I'm studying in Germany.

So I could actually be an intermediate tour guide for the city, Köln. From Kölner Dom to the Chocolate Museum, I've explored a number of places in between and know a bit about the insider tips on this city. Last week I went to Köln with Prabu to take him around and explore Germany's fourth-largest city. Two days after that, I went to the Cologne again with Darwin to meet up with Rumitha, her sister, Mithila and their cousin, Nivanyah. I had a good time and I bet they did too.Let's have a look at the pictures that we took!

Selamat Köln!
