every other time that i am not in lecture, not out buying grocery, or to the city,not eating or sleeping, i'll be in front of my baby, online-ing.favourite pastime as of now!
..or downloading series that i can get my hands onto. hooked on Project Runway and America's Next Top Model season 10 now.. and i'm watching So You Think You Can Dance finale right after this post! =) (i love Twitch and Mark!drools*)
..or indulging with my current addiction to these Bramley Apple Pies... gorgeously, wonderfully sweet, enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.
last night was officially the FIRST time i cooked at Belfast with absolutely very very minimal amount of help.. hehe. going to have to cook every day already, time to get used to that.
Strips of chicken with onions. added a cocktail of sauces into it.. haha. turned out not bad, edible =p
cabbage with carrots..can't get too wrong with vege.
green bean tong sui. thanks to jenghaw, tongsui master of the house for brewing it up for everyone after dinner.
don't the strawberries look pretty?? actually had to finish up the strawberries before they spoil. =p
and its been only a week.
that's where i'm going behind there! well, literally i'm not.. cos this is the main building and my lectures and CSU's won't be held here.. chis.
No sight of other human beings around, cos still summer break. all courses start mid september.. ding dong medicine must start earliest.. 25 august.. sien!!
This memorial in front of the university is dedicated to the university staff who sacrifced their lives for the war during 1939-1945
Attempting to cook. Stir fry vege and oven-baked trout and lamb with rice. No more food like these once my mum and uncle leaves..
Okok, i didn't do any of it alone. I was more of the sidekick actually. Haha!
My slightly defected room. Not for the claustraphobic. Room so small, that when i jus stretch my arm up, i'd already touch the ceiling and the front of the bed is blocking the drawers making them unopenable. No space even after trying to change positions of the furnitures..
Well, other than that..i'm satisfied. =)
ok, now my house from outside on Edinburg Street..which is just further down by few houses. every unit is quite narrow. has a small gate in front of each unit.
Elmwood Hall,in front of University Belfast. Was formerly a church, then it was leased to Ulster Ochestra, to become a concert hall. Belfast has many of these kind of buildings that pop out here and there. All the churches look like that. dam nice rite??
can see my uncle,mum and Patrick walking towards the Queen's Student Guidance Centre. Had to get confirmation of accomodation letter from them to open bank account, at Northern Bank. its one of the major banks here, other than Ulster Bank. quite ma fan.
University Road, which is further down from the university.. alot of pubs and clubs this road. that's where all the students go wild. haha. the students hostel is nearby only. there are also alot of restaurants and fast foods like kebabs and such. there's even chinese restaurants! they're everywhere seriously. along the shops, from time to time, some Emerald Restaurant will pop out.
LAVERY... apparently its a famous club here.
spotted this shop at university road.. caught my eye! its actually a piercing shop, if u can understand why.. =p
lo and behold!!! the myth is broken.. the legend is not true.. there's actually KFC in Belfast! and also Burger King.. Subway, DOMINO's, Pizza Hut, McD... there are quite a decent amount of fast foods here. alot of eating places as well, especially italian restaurants. but so PRICEY!! for us at least..
fish and chips. probably my first UK English meal? last night doesn't count cos we take away chinese food near my place wan. about 3.50 pounds. its alright, nothing too special. the fries were huge though. bigger than my middle finger, and the peas were fresh.
see the feris wheel??? its called the Eye of Belfast, supposedly when you're up there, can see all of Belfast. 6.50 pounds for one ride. didn't ride it though.
i was shocked! Tesco Metro in this kind of building??
most importantly, it was sale sale SALE!! hehe.. crazy discounts seriously, even for us is cheap. the famous place to shop, Primard (i think thats the spelling...) which is mostly where youngsters go for shopping. its a madhouse once you get in. even with four or five cashiers at a row, the queue line stretches 50 m long. i bought a long, white pants for 3 pounds imagine that!! and coats and jackets from as cheap as 10 pounds, nice ones probably 17 pounds. alot of large sizes leftover only though.. guess the smaller ones sold out. the extreme was right opposite, Marks and Spencer! where when u step in, u feel 30 years older straight away... seriously all old people wan. and its super pricey. only the underwear was cheap =.=
Belfast City Hall! majestic bulding. every corner of it was beautiful. sighs.
feeling all weird in my head, neck and abdomen already.. and the greatest news of all, MAS "displaced" our 4 luggages that we checked in, which they promised to strait away send to belfast for us. and... all my clothes are inside..books... toiletries, books...books..laptop battery charger.. so, i have a limit of usage of my laptop for now..
nuff' said. here are the pics..
just reached the london airport..can see the hustle and bustle of humans.
the amount of people taking this flight was unbelievably huge!200 3oo
people?apparently its a "jumbo plane".
yum!! chocolate dispenser! at a price of 2 pounds a bar!!
saw these chairs at one the london airport terminals.
those shoe-polishing chairs? wonder who are the patrons... looks creepy!
when we were in the tazi on the way to my house, got to look at streets and the town.. the buildings are old-looking and beautiful.. didn't take pictures as it was
dark.i'll just show my house pics ya.
this is the entrance door, going into a narrow corridor. notice the KELUAR sign up there? haha, can literally on it wan.
the entrance continues directly to the stairs. and on the right there are two doors, one to jay's room and the other to the living room and kitchen.
here is where the kitchen lies. definitely well-equipped. has most of what u need. and can u see the door there at the back? thats my room! =)
i like the living room couches.
so.. upstairs is lidet lor
and... here's proof that i already reach belfast.
ok.. cant write anymore. seriously feeling vertigo..nites! tomoro settle my luggage problem first thing morning. please oh please.. don't be gone forever, or for more than 1 week.
boxes are filled with my books that i want to bring there.. although been filtering and filtering,its still so heavY!!! and in the semi-giant luggage bag>the left one< stuffed with lotsa lotsa clothing...whilst the giant luggage bag sits comfortably with only minute amount of stuff in it..
And here are FEW items i purchased recently as well.. (there are more items,but i put in the bag already lar.. lazy to take out just for blogging..)
the cutest pair of socks that i had to get my hands on.. just rm8 in forever 21! cute right?was thinking whether the cashier keyed in wrongly, cos i thought the pricetag reads rm25.. just love love the cherries at the side! kawaiiiiii
thank u to someone who got me this bag.. muaks! >secret santa will never be revealed...kekeke< can't rid myself of my fondness to canvas and ruggard bags..though trend of leather bags is thrown at my face, tried to convert myself.. but the heart likeys what it likeyS! even my old momoe bag that's already dirty and torn and colour slightly fading, many has been telling me to just throw it and stop using it.. but i feel the bag just grew on me and became a part of me.
.and special request by angel to put my crocs in my blog (though she seen them already) supposedly to wear for hospital.. looks comfy? don't be deceived! devilish black crocodile! roar! my feet bruised already after wearing it whole day today walking around.. ish ish. probably have to soften the rubber more by wearing it more often? i hope so.. but socks definitely don't go with these.. =.=
okok .. just a hint who he is... he likes cabaret.
