... continue with my UK trip.

Day 3 in uk- 12.07.09 (Sunday).
After 2 hours of travel by train, we reached Birmingham (at 3.40pm) which is the second largest city in UK. The cooling and windy weather caused me keep on freezing when I stepped out from the train. The first impression I got toward Birmingham is I don't feel like I'm in UK because there are so many black people here. Seems like this is their country, a place that conquered by them. Frankly, I don't really like Birmingham and this place seems boring. But bf told me that Birmingham is shopping heaven.

Birmingham New Street Station

After we came out from the train station, we headed to the hotel we've booked. So that we can leave our luggage in the room and walked around the city.

Britannia Hotel
3 days 2 night - £92

Our Room - 3 single bed.
The room is quite small, we can't even walked properly after we "lay down" our luggage. But everything is fine in this room, especially it is CLEAN.

After that, we hunt for foods. I'm so hungry cause we haven't take lunch yet. Then I saw this sausage stall. So, I decided to buy a sausage to fill up my tummy first.

The staff will give you a bread with the sausage, then you could put any sauce that you like on the sausage. Bf added tomato sauce, mayonnaise and mustard. When I first ate the bread, I was like "yucks"... The mustard is so smelly and it is not the taste that I like. Sob.. But I still finished it cause I'm hungry and is not cheap though.

After we filled up our tummy with the bread, we walked around Birmingham city.

Not many people on the street because almost all the shops started closing around 5 or 6pm.

This is the Selfridges building. A very unique building.

St. Martin's Church - the only church I saw at here.

There we walked to China Town which quite near to the hotel we stayed.

Me and bf's mum started missed Malaysian food on the third day we at UK. So, we looking for a Chinese restaurant for our dinner.

This is the shop we had our dinner.

From the above 3 photos, their foods seem not bad right? But it taste really worst. Don't ever dine in this restaurant when you go to Birmingham.

Dinner that cost £25.80, not worth it. Really! I can cook much better then them. I wonder how they can survive in uk with those really tasteless foods. Even the tomyam I ate, it shows 4 chillies which means very very spicy but ended up, it taste like drinking water. Sigh...~~~~

Kinda disappointed with those foods I ate today included the sausage. I won't let those tasteless foods bring me down. After dinner, we walked around the city.

All shops are closed. Not even a single person you can see from my picture except the guard.

I was trying so hard to get up on the bull with the help from bf~

Summer at Birmigham.

I got myself 2 shirts from Zara which cost £3.99 each (around RM22), cheap right? You can't get this cheap in Malaysia.

Gonna end up my post with the flower I took in Birmingham.

Good night everyone.


next,
continue the journey
in Birmingham.
