My friend Shahrul Yani can't meet me because she got classes, but her husband picked us from the bus station and bring to their house.

After get rest for a while, we went to nearby town, Headington to get our lunch while waiting for Yani finished her class. Unfortunately, Yani can't bring us anywhere because she got a site visit...lastly we decided to go to London by ourself.
