Us posing in front of the SuperLambanana (housemates - Brain + Cath + Peggy)
We saw this SuperLambanana on our arrival day, but didn't know what it was. Now we know, it is like, THE landmark for Liverpool! And it sits in front of our LJMU Avril Robarts Learning Centre, which in turn is just opposite our Marybone halls! Woohoo~!!
After seeing some photos Bing took the previous night, the group decides to start off by heading to the riverside as well..
Chrysler PT Cruiser in the parking lot. I think there's none in Malaysia roads... Very nice lorr, this car...
Just as we were about to head to the Three Gems, we noticed a certain signboard pointing in the opposite direction,
So off we went, in that direction...
Then we headed back to the Three Gems and Albert Dock..
It is said that Liverpool is called Liverpool because of these Liver birds. They used to fly around in the skies in the area, but have gone extinct since who-knows-when..
We decided to make life interesting. So we came up with this award presentation ceremony for the photography freaks in front of the back door of The Royal Liver Building..
We later found out every cities in the UK has these buses. But we never tried riding it at all. The reason..
It was RM7 to 1 pound back then, so it was RM35/student/ride. Think we'll stick to walking for our sightseeing after all..
It was at this time that me and Nick felt quite bored with constant camwhoring delays, so we decided to get ahead of the group and made our way to Albert Dock..
It's actually not a boat. It has wheels and can leave the water. We see them driven around Liverpool city as well. But it can also travel on water lah, obviously..
Our next stop, Chinatown. Heard that it is the oldest Chinatown in the UK, so anticipation was running high among us..
On the way, we saw many nice grafitti paintings on the walls of different buildings, so some of us decides to camwhore with them..
We were starting to get anxious until when we saw this,
Looks like we were on the right way after all..
But what I wanted to emphasize is this, road sign with Chinese words! Now I know we were getting real close!
To be honest, I felt it was quite a letdown... I mean, I was used to Chinatown being at least something like this,
But what we got is this,
To be fair, there's some other Chinese shops around the area, but the main Chinatown street was... kinda disappointing...
But heck, we're here already, let's take some photos la...
It was common sense that we wanna have some Chinese food since it's Chinatown, but all the restaurants seems closed for business at that time. It was like 3 or 4pm. Finally found 1 of them still open..
I forgot who took the photos of the food, or if anyone took photos of them.. Don't have them with me... arghh... nevermind la, whatever... nothing special la the Chinese food here... we get better Chinese food in Malaysia... seriously...
On our way back to Marybone after meal.. notice the building on the right side of the picture.. We will be going there alot in the coming semester hehehe :D
Well, that's all for this day 3...
