This entry is the continuation from the previous post in which I told you about Villa D'Este.
After being mesmerised by the magnificent and beautiful fountains, we straight away went to Villa Adriana (The Hadrian's Villa).
The Villa Adriana which is also at Tivoli is an exceptional complex of classical buildings created in the 2nd century A.D. by the Roman emperor Hadrian.
It combines the best elements of the architectural heritage of Egypt, Greece and Rome in the form of an 'ideal city'.

There are many thermal baths that were used in ancient times.
We were very interested about the story behind the thermal bath.
(Rasa nerd lah juga pergi ke sana sini ikut je tour guide haha).
We ended our tour with Villa Adriana in a huge pool called Banquet Hall.
Our tour guide told us that during the ancient time, all VIPs ate in a private section and the waterfall acted as a curtain, so that people outside couldn’t see them clearly.
I bet this place was really luxurious hundreds years ago.
Sempat lagi terbayang acah acah princess then pakai gaun putih gerbang jalan kat tepi tepi hehe.
Najja and I decided to cook the ration that contained Malaysian food.
Before we cooked the rice and boiled the ration, we gave Caterina to try our traditional clothes.
Baju pinjam from sekolah haha.
Caterina was very excited and she kept saying that the clothes were very beautiful.

After that, we were quite ‘kelam-kabut’ as we didn’t know how to cook rice.
Dah form 4 pun tak reti masak lagi time tu ish ish ish budak-budak zaman sekarang apa nak jadi ni haha.
I tried to call our teachers, but there was no answer.
Luckily, our foster mom helped us to cook the rice.
We worried that they would hate our food, but fortunately, they seemed to like it.
Aldo loves to eat rice.
After eating rice, we served them with tom yam Maggi.
Last minute plan nak masak for them aiyo Maggi pun boleh -.- haha
Then, our mom took out an apple pie that she made specially for us.
Seriously, it was very delicious!
Sedap sangat sangat tak cukup makan 1 slice hehe.
Then we apologised to them in case they disliked what we cooked just now.
Yelah lagipun guna ration (makanan dah siap, just panaskan) je bukannya masak betul betul pun tsk tsk.
They said that it was very delicious and Aldo said that he would be very happy if we could cook for him everyday.
Our foster mom was very touched and she started to cry.
I couldn’t stand to see people cry so, I cried too.
|Tom yam Maggi pun jadi lah hehe|
|Strawberry with cream|
|Delicious and scrumptious apple pie for dessert!|
We were singing while Edoardo played the guitar.
Luca played the keyboard.
We also ate ice-creams and showed some cheerleading techniques and stunts to the Italians.
End of Day 4
