Hello to Josephine !
She arrived at Manchester on 18th December 2010 noon. And her first meal was at Nandos, which costs only £3.20 per person. Thank you Ying for the free whole chicken coupon! Ying.. you must have spent a lot in Nandos to get the coupon 😀 thank you! Look at how delicious the chicken is! We ordered spicy chicken 😀
Here’s a blurry group picture of us (psst, not a very good photographer :P)
left from front: Ying, Jake, Josephine, me ; right from front: Li Shan, Looh Zhen, Chia Khuan and Caroline
There are more pictures of Josephine and I, but they are all in Josephine’s camera 🙂 Surprisingly, I can’t remember what we did on the first day.
For the second day, the weather was beautiful.
We went to visit the Manchester Museum. It was free admission,but I heard that they will be charging for entrance fee next year. It was my first time entering the museum, and if I wasn’t mentally exhausted, I would enjoy more of it. A few displays caught my eyes: butterflies and crystals!
A picture of me with giant T-rex! I think it’s T-rex. Is it not? Well, why don’t you come to Manchester museum and see if it’s true ? 😛
After the museum tour at Oxford Street, we head off to John Ryland Library at Deansgate. It was almost a half hour walk, and we stopped by at Archies for a milkshake.
I got Archie’s milkshake and Josephine got Million Dollar Shake. Both had ferrero rocher chocolate and a tint of strawberry flavour in it.
We’ve been to John Ryland Library millions of time, so I didn’t take any pictures of it. In fact we’ve just visited the library in end of November when Looh Zhen’s friends came for a visit. Ha Siaw Hui and Yang Ming 🙂
Oh wait, I found a picture in John Ryland’s library:
That night, we had a farewell dinner for Li Shan. She came to Manchester for a semester, and it’s amazing how fast three months can be. We went to Arndale to get her a gift: a bear. She looooved it. Our gift was an odd combination of three different bears: a Boofle bag, a Me to You card and the bear below.
The last picture made me laugh a little. It feels like Li Shan and sis wanted to take a picture of just the two of them, and four of us just cut in. 😛
Bye bye Li Shan! We’ll miss you dearly ❤ Thank you for the nutella too! I wish we took more pictures together 🙂
P.s. it’s not that I am biased for not writing much for Li shan, I kept getting distracted watching Black Swan with Caroline and Belinda (It’s christmas eve!)
One of the many pictures we take at Weston Hall
