Visit to Liverpool- 2 darling wives

F.I.N.A.L.L.Y end of term!!!!had a day off before the last day of term, so went off to Liverpool to visit my two darling wives who both happen to study in Liverpool.

after a 2 hours train ride, i was welcomed by Pig Wife Linh with this welcome sign=) Linh just had a Lasik operation in Vietnam over the summer. Looks prettier without her glassses=)
then Linh brought me on a city tour around city centre. Liverpool is the Capital of European Culture in 2008 so alot of constructions are underway to gear the city to serve this role. There were lots of red brick building, building that has a historical feel to it. And my first impression was that Liverpool os very clean and tidy, didnt really see any dirty backlanes, everything just looked so new and pristine.
thank you linh for taking time off your lecture to accompany me around. really happy to see you after so long.

and there were lots of roman-themed architecture. This picture was taken near the cluster of musuems and concert halls.
Linh leaning over a giant platter of a full english breakfast? nah, it was a model in the kids section of the world museum. i wonder why did we end up in the kids sections.
meet up with Luke after his lecture. Then went over to Vivien's place. haha, both my wives became prettier over the summer! Vivien changed her specs and highlighted her hair red~looks hip and younger ( though in fact she is older than me, but she loves to emphatise that i look more ah ma standing next to her*grimace*)

and she made me dinner~burger with lamb,cheese,onion, mushroom,tomato, omg it was absoulutely delicious and i was so full. arent both my wives the sweetest friends in the world=)

check out vivien's new uber cool dark red guitar, it even has an inbuild tuner! she played my favourite 五月天's <<温柔>>had a nice chat over dinner, she showed me the pictures from her recent trip to Sweden, i got a tiny cute little ship, an orange lock and key and a disposable camera as souvenir~

and it was time to say goodbye. i will definitely visit liverpool again next year~

Curry Night Out- M group social

Went out for my first M group social event a couple of weeks ago. M group is just like a small class of 15 students who have their small group teaching sessions, student led discussions, anatomy sessions together.
i've always wanted to try the british curry, so was really really excited when our M group rep announced that we're heading for a curry house near the university. i've asked my ang mor friends what curry dish would they recommend. There's this Paneer thing i would love to try, curry with CHEESE CUBE, hmm, hmmmmm
all the girls in my M group

we had papadum first - indian crackers with mango chutney. the mint raita dipping sauce was absoultely tasty! it's mint sauce mixed with yoghurt.

onion bhaji- typical starter to a british indian meal. deep fried onion seasoned with chili powder, coriander. my classmates went " oh my god ing, ur not taking pictures of the starters!!"the naan bread was humongous. really regret not ordering one ( i very kiamsiap lar, intended to save money but in the end we split the cost evenly....) tried some from Ross, could instantly taste the difference between freshly served naan and the ones u get from Tesco.

i tried cooking tikka masala and rogan josh myself. so opt for a Balti curry with lamb tikka and spinach that night. not spicy at all ( what da ya expect, ang mor cannot stand spicy food, and i am an anak timur whose tastebud is spoiled by nasi kandar) nevertheless it was quite a nice meal, loved the mushy spinach. *flex biceps and sings i'm popeye the sailor man poot poot*

Birmingham is famous for its Balti dishes introduced by the Kashmiri population ( from Pakistan?) Balti refers to the round bottomed wok that the curry is served in. There's even a Balti Triangle somewhere in the city, and yesh, i am going to hunt that area down to satisfy my tastebud.

there's even a Malaya curry on the menu but just cant be bothered to try least i get a major letdown.

we head for a pub after the meal and everyone bought a drink and laucnh straight into a drinking game. at the point where i eventually lost, my classmates exclaimed in utter surprise :" ing you dont have a drink?" then everyone started pouring portions of their drinks into an empty glass concocting a cocktail. haha that nearly scared the shit out of me, but luckily i didnt have to down that. left early because i really dont know my alchohol tolerance level.
