Trip to Liverpool

Students' Union organized the trip to Liverpool, costing me £17 as I'm not a Gold Member (Member £15). At 6.45a.m., we all arrive Wearmouth Hall to board on Jim Hughes coach, then at 7.05a.m., the coach leaves...

On the way, some of us can't sleep very well thanks to the loudness of the speakers on for DVD.. a movie name Calcium Kid. DUH.... It's very bad.. boring.. even I only listen occasionally to the dialog and not watching. After that movie finish, another movie is up and I don't even remember the name already.. It's also a British movie.. and it also sucks like the first one... Only making lots of noise through the speakers above each and everyone of us...

With 20 minutes break half way, our journey took us nearly 4 hours. Arriving Liverpool at nearly 11a.m. at Albert Dock. Stopping at a place we didn't expected, we change our plan a bit. 18 people walking around the streets... hehe... Saw the Yellow Duckmarine when we just drop off the coach... the Duckmarine can go straightly into the water becoming a boat. Amphibious vehicle... but I forgotten to take picture of it cruising on water.. sigh~~

We went to Beatles Story at the first stop then continue walking down Albert Dock.
Walking down Albert Dock, the scenery is nice and the weather is nice... thank God for that. We then walk pass Maritime Museum then go into city....

Our next destination is China Town... but don't know why the whole China Town's shops are closed, only left one open. Might be because of the football match between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield stadium? and the one open is not a Liverpool supporter?? China Town in Liverpool seems quite sad... some shop lots are left there for so long that nobody cares... only someone like Jac would like to take photo with it...


We then had lunch at a buffet outside China Town.. costing us only £5.40 and it taste better than Panda Oriental Buffet in Sunderland, and cheaper as well... Sitting there for an hour, bursting our stomach, we then continue walk to the Anglican Cathedral. It's a magnificent piece of architecture and the view at the park down beside it is nice as well, with tombs around.. hehe...



The next stop is Metropolitan church which is new and modern. I like the lightings in the building.


After that we went to the Williamson Tunnels Heritage Center, but due to time constraints, we have to give up on the tour which we have to wait for 20 minutes and 40 minutes of visiting. After that we went to the St. George's Hall and took some photos of it... Not sure of what is it about... then art gallery... then we walk back to Albert Dock....



After that, it's 5p.m. and its our journey back to Sunderland....


Stupid Adrian ask Alvin to take photo of me sleeping... then Alvin is so stupid to listen to his orders to do so.. then.. that's the result of 2 stupid people's work.. my gorgeous sleeping photo... Anyway, thanks to Adrian who send me this photo before I finish writing this post.
