Russia in Ice @ Trafalgar Square

Posted by Picasa


This is just a preview of what's to come this week-end. Be prepared for a Russian invasion of Trafalgar Square this Saturday as there will be a Russian Winter Festival. I was on my way to work when I spotted this wonderful sculpture in ice and that was in the morning when it was still cold but by evening, it was already melting, what with spotlights in different colours training on it, changing the shades much to the delight of passers by.

So, this Saturday, if you are not doing anything , please head towards Trafalgar Square. I know someone will be there - blogger Pu1pu3 who is in town for a meeting. After meeting her at Benjys along the Strand and before the promised koayteow at Mawar Restaurant and a meeting with blogger Ewok, I took her to see the sculpture and how much more beautiful it is at night!

Kak Teh said...

Nur, u are very lucky!! I met someone - a Malaysian from Moscow at Heathrow two weeks ago - and she said it is sooooooooooo cold there. Thanks for visiting Nur.
AJ - yes, Art is still a regular there and I met him at Mawar solat prayers last Monday. Any message to kirim?

abdullahjones said...

pesan? err... entah. cuma jika ada masa terluang saya ingin melihat dia bernyanyi. mahu tahu jadualnya.

Kak Teh said...

Art biasanya menyanyi setiap hari ahad malam sabtu di mawar diiringi mofa. AJ sekarang di mana?

noni said...

errks... kak teh... this is so uncanny... i had a huge crush on art fadzil once upon a time and was just thinking about him earlier today. I wonder if he still remembers me... erks.. I wonder if he's still single... hehehe....

Kak Teh said...

nonie - he is single mingle - yes , that I know. Heheh - adapun gambar raya berdua dengan art. He is just like a brother to me and an older brother to my children. Will let him know.

I had to give a miss to icy Russia in Trafalgar square, no matter how tempting it looked. Had a Key, calling.

Hope you had a great time.

So we have met, but not proper. Was busy running around haritu, tak sempat nak sembang sembang.

Sejuk ? mai melawat tang ni, hangat amat amat sbb la ni tengah dok summer, sampai nak begetah badan, sebab peloh.
Pindah sini last Oct, husband attached with one of the Oz's company pulak. How long ? tatau lagi as we have 4 years visa. Busan busan balik la menetap ke Manchester semola.

Brrrrr..the ice scuplture photos gives me the chills..Could just imagine the wintry air over there. Its quite rainy here in Malaysia. Yesterday went for my trekking practice kat Bukit FRIM habis kasut jadi merah courtesy of the mud. Oh yes - I was also the source of food for multiple pacats.

pu1pu3: I agree with DITH you vogue dalam gambar! Must have been lovely to meet with KT. Had a read of your updates - bestnya!
