Finally I am back from a backpacking trip to Manchester and Birmingham. Both locations had a rainy weather, that limits me from walking around. I hope you’d still enjoy these series.


The main reason I went to Manchester was to watch a charity football game called Soccer Aid. It was the English against the rest of the world – well, mostly celebrities. Sadly, my camera was not with me on that day to capture the moment. I do have it in my phone which I will post a.s.a.p.


Besides the Old Trafford, I did not manage to visit other interesting places due to my limited time constrains. From my 2 days 1 night experience in Manchester, it seems that the town is pretty quiet. Maybe it’s the rain?

One thing  I love about Manchester is this particular Dim Sum shop I went to. It’s so tasty yet cheap!


Birmingham, a beautiful place…for shopping! Unfortunately I had too much ‘trash’ to carry so there’s no space for shopping! All I did was walking around to explore the beauty of Birmingham!

One place that I visited which I thought was quite interesting, IKON.  I assume it’s like a gallery for independent artist to display their art?


Here they are, my “part-time” models for the trips. 😀


I am not sure what this river is called, but it’s beautiful.

It was my birthday yesterday and a group of us decided to go for lunch in London. We were supposed to take the early train but being typical Malaysians with a sleeping-more-than-needed hobby, we took the afternoon one instead. But no big deal anyway. When I mentioned “a group of us” i don’t mean only 2 of us (picture above), there were more of us but let’s just put it this way… pictures of them din’t come out too well. 😀


We went to this restaurant recommended by a friend called Hi Sushi Salsa if I’m not mistaken? Located somewhere around Camden Town. It’s a japanese buffet restaurant with very limited choices of food but that doesn’t stop them from filling your tummy! Taste great and it cost £14.80 per person excluding taxes. 😀

We walked around for abit after lunch before going to a pub to have a drink where we later had our dinner in Rasa Sayang chinatown. We couldn’t do much because almost 80% of shops in London where closed due to Easter if I’m not wrong. 😀


Not many photos were taken today though… I’ll be leaving for Scotland in about 3 hours time so hopefully I’ll bring back some decent pictures!!!! 😀
