Alhamdulillah, yesterday we have reached "The Honeymoon Destination", not Europe, not Maldives, not Bali.. but Johannesburg, South Africa. Although it might not sound romantic, but we're off for an adventure of our lives. Below I share some pics from our first day in Jo'burg.
The hotel where we stayed until tomorrow, dubbed "A little bit of old style in the heart of Sandton". Sandton is a CBD area of Jo'burg which houses some of the best shopping centres in Africa
The hotel's swimming pool, it's kinda too cold to swim. It's summer yet its 18 degrees
feeding the pigeons, you'll find some nice African birds instead
The old signboard
The Colony Cafe, reminiscing the British colonial era
This is all we can eat for breakfast..for now
and the hotel is connected with a nice little mall..
its called The Village Walk
this shop selling gemstones is owned by a Malaysian couple
African souvenir sold outside the hotel
Halal food isn't hard to find in South Africa
Even this pizza and sandwich outlet is Halal
World Cup 2010 heat can be felt here already
Ellis Park Stadium, I think the opening and finals will be held here
Say hello to Zakumi
