I left Liverpool as a poor international student, with very little money at my disposal (probably because I used most of it on booze). Anyhow, this time I returned as a tourist who had enough budget to try out new things. One of the regrets I had, I guess, was not having explored some of the restaurants on Bold Street. This Uncle Sam was one of them. I guess I chose this one, to reminisce two dear friends of mine whose names were, coincidentally, both Sam.
當年在利物浦過著一整年的窮學生生活。如果真要說遺憾，大概就是當年沒能有足夠的經費到處品嘗Bold Street上的美味吧！（經費不足也可能是因為都花在酒上面了*溜*）所以這次回去，雖然也不算富裕，但至少是個經費足夠的旅客。這次就可以嚐嚐不同的東西囉。我想我會選擇這間Uncle Sam，也剛好是因為當年伴我留學的兩位好友剛好都叫Sam。想說來這裡可以想想他們～

The riot that happened a while ago shocked a lot of people (obviously including me). It was shocking because it was quite unexpected. It was even more shocking that the riots spread to elsewhere, and of all places - Liverpool! At the time, I was just about to start writing the next series of my 2010 travel log - on Liverpool. The riots confused me. I didn't know how to start writing. That's why I'm only starting to post my Liverpool journals now. I wonder how things are now. But let's put that feeling aside, and take a look at how tranquil the place can be. How serene and friendly the place was during my visit in 2010.

This was a pub recommended by a friend of mine. When knowing I was heading to Leeds, it was the first thing that she recommended, knowing how I love pubs. When I got to Leeds, I realised that this was very close to where my host's place was. Of course I was not going to miss out on this.

This is supposed to be an article about my try out of Gunnar Digital Performance Eyewear. But along with a review of the product, I'd also like to share with you some other thoughts, since this is my first blogger product try out.

Cath Kidston had probably been popular long before I took notice of it. We walked by the shop during our walk home. And as I was in need of a bag to stuff some of my things, I knew I had to buy one. If I had to buy a bag anyway, I'd rather it be a good quality bag, instead of wasting my money on some crappy bag.

After returning from York, my friend and I met up at the station, and we decided to eat out. It was the only meal we ate out. The rest of the meals, well, you probably remember (or not) were cooked by me. She took me to this Italian restaurant, recommended to her by a mutual friend of ours. Since it was 'recommended', I expected nothing to go wrong.

Very cozy-looking entrance to the cafe. 看起來就很舒適的大門。
I had not been here before. This was yet another place I found through the internet. I was meeting two of my former students, and had to pick a place for us to spend some quality time together. When I saw this place on the net, I thought it would be the perfect place for a quiet chat, light meal or snack, and most importantly, playtime with kitties. Yes, there are kitties here in the cafe.

CAPT meets for Sunday brunch once a month. I first heard about CAPT from a friend of a friend. I was a bit reluctant at first, because I know how these things can turn out to be like. But I thought, it didn't hurt to give it a try. So I went, and had a really good time meeting new people. My first CAPT lunch was in May. This article is about my second CAPT brunch.

One Friday afternoon, I suddenly felt the urge to have some Japanese sashimi rice. But there weren't any decent Japanese restaurants near the work place, so I grabbed two of my friends to explore one that we have never been to.
