So today gonna continue with the Third chapter of Day Trip in Blackpool, UK. I'm quite happy that readers love what have I written about Blackpool previously. :)
First of all, I would say shopping in Blackpool was good compared with all those crowds at the outlets in Liverpool City. A calm destination for shopping and shops for quality goodies and non the less the bargain. I bought most of my gifts (clothes/ tops) for my family most of it were from there! Primark, Top Shop, Dorothy Perkins et cetera.
- My newly bought (Back then in Year 2008) Jacket from Miss Selfridge, Blackpool -
I love it and it take care of me when I was studying in UK back then and I still keep them until today... but keep it in my drawer. :P The weather in Malaysia is not suitable for such jacket, anyway I'm gonna take it out before I forget and :D bring it on my next trip in March 2012! :)
Along the street of various outlets, we walked by an animated characters outlet - I didn't noticed the shop's name but those Marvel, Pixar's characters and other interesting characters just caught our eyes. We went in there and asked the nice gentlemen for permission to snap a few photographs and he said YES! :) Never ask, never know ;) All of us was happy and taking photos around and look around.
- Cheshire Cat from "Alice in Wonderland" and Sulley from "Monster Inc." -
- King Kong with :/ with Barbie and Superman behind -
- Spiderman -
My head was singing "Spiderman Spiderman... or Spiderpig Spiderpig by the Simpson, if you could recall.
- Stuart from "Stuart Little" -
- I never come across this character before -
Besides those, I saw character from "Star War", the Baby from "Family Guy" and so much more.
That's all for our little tour inside there. :) And thank you for the nice gentleman to let us snapping photographs there without purchasing anythings! In a matter of facts, I normally found games outlets in Malaysia selling more on Japanese animation say, characters like Arale, Ranma, One Piece, sexy Japanese animation miniatures and others which differentiate with what I have found in UK. Preference counts anyway.
- The Simpson Family -
So yea~ I "met" the Simpson and his family while watching the public walk by (like a TV screen) through the glass window of the outlet. :D Nothing could stop me to take photo with it before we headed to the next visiting place!
- Street for shopping and foods -
Walking between those shops and streets, I'm just loving those people and what I saw. Everything look nice in UK. Anyway, we did bought souvenirs too! I love to collect key chains and fridge magnets to add on to my mom's refrigerator, even until now which my mom bought few from her China trip.
- Next destination -
Drizzling rain went heavier while we were on our way, we did stop by at Subway to grab a drink and continued our walk to the well known Park of Blackpool.
Finally.... after all those walking....
- Stanley Park -
Say "Hello" to Stanley Park!
Finally we arrived happily at Stanley Park after a long walking distance (a really long one) to the recommended park of Black Pool. Way back then, as a students, all the things we could do was to budget ourselves and by foot we walked here and there. Once in a while, I look back all the photographs, they just amazed me with our strong determination towards... travel. :)
Visiting to Stanley Park will be the next write up on Blackpool. Stay tuned. :)
Friends who are reading this, how are you lately?
p/s : I was searching for images without me, but not much of such photos in my album. :( So... hopefully you won't get bored with my face. :P *blush*
