Petronas Twin Tower, Malaysia - 17th September 2007

By: spicebunny

I took Majed on a wander during the night with my boyfriend to Petronas Twin Towers or also known as KLCC to the residents in Kuala Lumpur and nearby areas.


Opening the door to head outside.


Outside of KLCC...


Mosque outside KLCC. People were looking at Majed and giggled, but Majed being a brave orang-utan, ignore everyone and told me to take good shots of him.


Inside KLCC with all the decoration.


On the ground floor, and looking at the middle with all the other decoration where usually they have exhibitions. This time, there were musician playing after I took photo of Majed ... so hmmm.


Majed is not talking much because he was a little tired and he was worried for my little sister who was sick.  :(

Zheleznodorozhny, Russia - 2nd December 2007

By: kristl

Today we stayed in the town Zheleznodorozhny where Kristl actually lives. This town is not far from Moscow (1/2 hour driving) and it's name means "The Railroad Town" :)

We went to walk to a park and saw many pigeons there. They followed us cause the thought that we'll feed them  :D


There was a feedbox just near the place we met the pigeons.


I tried to tell them about it but they did not want to hear me :(



Then we found a very nice place where the setting sun made the snow and the trees look wonderful!!!


And the most important!!! Today I managed to fulfil a mission!!! We did experience snow with Purple Bun who had such a mission too!! I am so happy!!!

Zheleznodorozhny, Russia - 3rd December 2007

By: kristl

Today we stayed at home cause the weather was awful :( On the weekends it was quite cold, but sunny, now it is +2 and it's almost raining..

When we were taking breakfast, Kristl told us a bit about some food she is used to eat in the morning :)


Here are:
glacé curd cake with chocolad and nuts, very tasty :))
condensed milk with kakao ;) Can be eaten with bread, but is very tasty without bread too :))


Then Kristl decided to write some New Year cards and we could see how the Russian New Year cards look like. Kristl explained us that they do not celebrate Christmas as we do. They celebrate the New Year on 31th Dec - 1st Jan. Christmas is on 7th Jan, but this is only a religious holiday. So our Christmas is their New Year :) Can you see Santa here? It's not Santa!!)) It's "Grandfather Frost", the one who gives the New Year presents ;)


Then Bumba found a greeting card with a very nice girl. She is called Snow Maiden ("Snegurochka"), she is granddaughter of Grandfather Frost and she allways comes with him :)

Moscow, Russia - 5th December 2007

By: kristl

Today we went for a walk to the Moscow Centre and I could see myself many famous buildings!

Here you can see State Historical Museum. And behind me you can see the Nikolskaya Tower of Kremlin.



Here's Kazan Cathedral that is situated on the Red Square:


And here's the Red Square! You can also see the Spasskaya Tower (with chiming clock), the Senate Tower, Lenin's Mausoleum near it, skating-rink and New Year Tree.



Here are Iberian Gate and Chapel, the entrance to the Red Square:


And here's the most famous shopping centre in Moscow - GUM (Main Universal Store)!


This is the skating-rink organized by GUM on the Red Square ;)


The New Year Tree on the Red Square!


Saint Basil's Cathedral - one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Moscow!



View from the Red Square:


Then we went to the main library in Russia - Russian State Library! And here's Dostoevsky Monumet in front of it:


There was a New Year Tree near the library and sparrows sat in its brances :)) I found it strage..


I saw a picture of a cat near the Tree. Kristl told that it is a very famous cat from Russian cartoons, he's called Leopold and his motto is "Let's live in peace and friendship!". I liked him!


On the other side there was a dog and a cat playing guitar. They appeared to be Matroskin the Cat and Sharik the dog from another famous cartoon - Three from Prostokvashino.


Then we went to the International Post Office cause Bertold was leaving to Oregon, USA. Have a nice trip, Bertold!

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 30th January 2008

By: ondrejliska

Hi! Yesterday I arrived to Prague, the capital of Czechia. Soon I will visit the city center. (I've heard they have two castles in this city. That's amazing!  ;) )

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 9th February 2008

By: ondrejliska

I have been in Prague for over a week, but I still didn't visit the city center. My host just keeps saying "I have to study for the exams", "On Monday I must know everything about Measure Theory" etc.

Today I tried to understand at least something from his notes, but I wasn't successful.

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 13th February 2008

By: ondrejliska

On Wednesday, we finally decided to go somewhere. But the weather and light conditions weren't ideal for taking pictures, so the only usable photos were those taken at Luka Metro station. (Metro = subway, underground, tube)

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 15th February 2008

By: ondrejliska

Friday was one of my first sunny days in Prague, so I asked Ondřej to take me to Prague Castle.

For some reason, castles are usually built on hills, and Prague castle is not an exception. Therefore we had to climb a lot of steps, but the view was certainly worth it.




But what's this? Why aren't they letting people in?

And why are so many wireless trucks here?


Oh, today must be the Presidential Election... What a pity! I'll have to come another day.


Here you can see the Presidential Banner.

It seems that not everybody is happy with the way of electing a new president.

We also went to Malostranské náměstí (Lesser Town Square), where I saw St. Nicholas Church, maybe the most beautiful Baroque building in Prague.

On our way home, we went past St. Gabriel Church. It has quite interesting history - it originally belonged to the Order of Saint Benedict, but today it belongs to Czech Post.

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 29th February 2008

By: ondrejliska

Two days ago, I met someone really interesting - Small Fry, a fish toyvoyager.

He didn't know how to play chess, so today I taught him. Czech language has quite remarkable names for chess pieces:

pawn ... pěšec (= foot-soldier, infanteer)
knight ... jezdec (= cavalier)
bishop ... střelec (= shooter, archer)
rook ... věž (= tower)
queen ... dáma (= lady)
king ... král (= king)




This soup is called bramboračka. Yummy!

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 8th March 2008

By: ondrejliska

On Saturday, Small Fry and I set out for the Prague Castle. Last time I had been quite unsuccessful, so I hoped we would be a bit luckier.

Everything seemed all right - people going through the gate, no wireless trucks, no demonstrating bears... and the Castle Guards standing motionless in their booths.

This is me on the Second and the Third Court.


This is the "Cathedral of St. Vitus, Adalbert and Wenceslas" (usually called just "Saint Vitus's Cathedral"). It took almost 600 years to build it!


This isn't just an ordinary knight killing an ordinary snake - it's Saint George killing the Serpent.

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 9th March 2008

By: ondrejliska

When the Middle Ages ended and Modern Times began, castles became kind of obsolete, so they have three posibilities what to turn into: mansions, fortresses, or ruins.

Prague Castle turned into a mansion or palace complex, so the other castle in Prague - Vyšehrad (literally High Castle) turned into a fortress, or maybe a hill fort.

Let's enter!

St Peter and St Paul's Church is one of Vyšehrad's dominants.


A sculpture by Josef Václav Myslbek depicts Přemysl and Libuše,  alleged founders of Přemyslides dynasty (which died off in male tail in 1306, but its descendants ruled Czech lands until 1918).

Wow! A 3D map!

Tomorrow I'l have to leave Prague - I'm going to Switzerland!
