UK Trip : Day 9
aaaaaa one week away from exam ! *dies* :S trying to cram as much as i can into my brain but really form 5 is tough because we have to finish all the syllabus by June and then its trial exams after trial exams … and then the real one . ugh .
here’s UK day 9 !!! a few more blog posts and i’m done with my trip documentary HAHAHHA SO PLS BEAR WITH ME I KNOW ITS BORING T___T
walked to Quayside to see the Greyshead Millenium Bridge ! omg as if the weather wasn’t cold enough , the wind by the quay was SO DAMN STRONG AND FREEZING COLD . quickly took some pictures and hurried to the nearest shelter HAHAHA , which was the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art , located at the other side of the bridge !
brunching in BALTIC’s little cafe ! my first time trying Eggs Benedict after watching so many mouth-watering episodes of 4 seasons Masterchef <3 it was pretty meh to be honest … :( not a good one for a first try .
hahaha this is what the judges always do when they wanna check the perfectness of the poached egg ! #masterchefhere
then went around the museum just to avoid the cold outside :S not supposed to take photos but i sneaked a picture ! :p
also went to the top of the building to see the view
THE VIEW IS SO PRETTY !!!! can i live in UK forever , minus the freaking cold weather of course :(
Sage Gateshead is situated super near BALTIC so we went there to have a look too ! there wasn’t much to see , considering it’s just a place for concerts to be held
and then off to St. Mary’s church ! initially we just wanted to look around and waste a bit of time but they had a free lunchtime concert so we stayed to watch .
the free lunchtime concert – some quartet from some school … i can’t remember what school but they were pretty good !!! loved the fact that they even played some modern songs like Viva La Vida to keep it interesting :D
went back to the hotel to rest after that ! OOTD :p
and in the evening my brother came over to bring us to his campus to have a look !went into his hostel and boy , it was small
in my brother’s messy little room ! :S kinda makes me excited though , i can’t wait to have my own little dorm in the future :DDD
took a bus to Tynemouth , where my brother’s (sort of) foster parents came to pick us up and we had dinner at their house !
here’s my brother’s set of foster parents ! (and my mom as usual haha) technically they aren’t his foster parents , but they met in church and he goes to their house for lunch all the time . they took care of my brother a lot , so they’re kind of but not officially his foster parents ? hahaha . anyway the food they served was amaaaaazing and they’re super nice people T___T they even fetched us back to the city centre !!
so hopefully someday when i go overseas to study abroad alone , i’d be fortunate enough to meet kind and good people like my brother did :D
