Bits & Pieces: Manchester, England
Manchester is the second largest urban area of the UK, and the world’s first industrialised city. This is clearly evident from their city’s architecture and huge Museum of Science and Industry (MoSI).
Unfortunately, Lucy and I didn’t have enough time to roam around the city (we were supposed to tour the Old Trafford, huhu) because we had a little car trouble. But given that UK’s night time starts at 9PM during the summer, we walked around the city even if most establishments are already close (We arrived in Manchester around 6PM). The look and feel of this city reminds me so much of Quiapo, but 100x cleaner and safer.
Budget Holidays to the UK
I’ve been doing this since January but I just want to make it “official” by writing it down. Given that I’m a lifestyle blogger and have no specific niche to focus on, I’ve come up with a way to still organize my entries. I will focus on one central theme per month. For example, November (2012) was focused on design, February (2013) for my Happiness Project, and August (2013) for beauty. This September, will focus on travel and my Big Blog Exchange experience.
This is my introduction. This entry will give you an idea how to travel UK without hurting your budget. Enjoy. :)
Photo Diary: Fall Out Boy Live!
A few weeks before I went to the concert, I asked people on Twitter how to bring my camera without getting caught. This is my first time to bring a DSLR inside a concert. I was worried because if the staff confiscated my camera, they will not be liable for any loss or damage. Just imagine my surprise when I saw a lot of kids were showing off their DSLR hours before the show even started.
Anyway! Let’s talk about Fall Out Boy and their recent concert. To set the record straight, I was never that big of fan before their hiatus. But when a music group goes on a break, chances are they’ll stay on a break for a decade or so. And their absence makes the heart grow fonder. ;)
CAUTION: This is a photo heavy post.
Faux Fur Fabric?
Do any of you know where to buy a faux fur in Manila? Something similar to my Hollister hoodie (photo above). And please don’t recommed Divisoria cause no one is willing to go there for my errands, lol. Thank you!
Bits & Pieces: Mary Arden’s Farm
Some shots I took when we visited the farmhouse that is owned by William Shakespeare’s mother, Mary. It’s been working farmhouse over the centuries.
