We were on our way to the HSBC Mount Pleasant branch to open our bank accounts, and 1 of the cathedrals is just nearby, so we decided to drop by as well.
The full name of the cathedral is:
Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Liverpool
Most people call it Metropolitan Cathedral, to save the hassle..
I'm not going to go into the history of the cathedral, u can just google for it, if u're even interested. But, something worth taking note of is that, this wasn't the original design for the cathedral.
But then, World War 2 hit, and after that, the cost went spiralling up, and another cheaper design was needed, hence the design now..
Let's just give u a few random photos inside the cathedral...
Maintaining the cathedral is no easy feat. It requires alot of manpower, and financial power..
We spent alot of time in the cathedral, until we almost forgot our main reason coming out today. Ok, let's go to the bank shall we?
Our university is the Liverpool John Moores University, not the same. Like our uni, this University of Liverpool is scattered throughout the city, and it's an old university. Our uni was a polytech or college until like 20 or 30 years ago, so its relatively new. There's another university in Liverpool, called the Liverpool Hope University, also scattered across the city.
They have separate machines for Information, Cash Deposit, Cheque Deposit and Cash Withdrawal.
If I have to describe one thing that is different between banks here and banks in Malaysia,
There were alot of us, some of us were done earlier, so we decided to go outside to look around.
Oh ya, learned this from my friends who have been staying in the UK. Here, we refer to the Pakistanis as 啊叉 Ah Cha, not sure why, but that's just it..
Not a very eventful day, but that's just it...
