And finally, some photos taken at the end of the evening. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening. Hopefully, next year, the other Bruneian students will be able to make it to the event. After all, when one is far from home, it's always nice to get together every so often. :) Anyway, even if this is belated:
- HAPPY 23rd NATIONAL DAY -
Here are some classical types of ice cream servings you can order... ... but then, since it's an Italian establishment, you can also order pizza and spagetti made from ice cream, fruits, chocolate, etc. The spagetti actually looks like it has real pasta, haha! Man, it makes me want to immediately jump on a plane back to Berlin just to have my pistazien ice cream! :(
Sansoucci was originally the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. Photo 2 shows the south facing garden facade, while Photo 3 is of the central bow of the garden facade, which is decorated with carved figures of Atlas and Caryatids.
If you take the route right of the garden facade, you'll come across a stream shown in Photo 4. You can see the so-called Chinese House in the distance. Photo 5 is a close-up of this building.
Photo 6 is just a bit of messing around. Justina's idea. So which shadow is mine, hehe? ;)
Photo 7 is one taken with almost everyone who went on the trip, people missing from the photo are Adek (Auntie Zaiton's son) who's taking the photo, and Junaidi and Danny, who drove us to Park Sansoucci. (Left to right: Justina, Maresa, Auntie Zaiton, Liana, my mum, Erika (in buggy), Christinah, my dad, Long-Long, me, Andy)
So there you have it, the last photo for this series. For those thinking of coming over to visit Berlin (hinting at Liza, Siti, June and Meela!), hope these photos give you something to look forward to!!! :)
Since visitors are not allowed to take photos using a flash, the quality of the photos are not as good as we'd like them to be. Therefore, I'm only going to show you the photos of the first amazing piece of history you see in this museum - the Pergamon Altar! It is an original-size reconstruction using parts transported from the original excavation sites - Photos 2-4. Thanks to Long-Long (a.k.a. Nazim) for POSING in the photos! POSER!!!Hahaha! ;P

Another part of the demolished wall which is a must-see is the East Side Gallery. I was told that the artwork on these walls are changed once a year. Justina and I decided to leave our own "artwork" (more like graffiti) on behalf of ourselves and our respective families, hehe - Photos 2-4.
