in Dubai waiting for my next connecting flight back to Malaysia.

Dubai and Manchester airport have changed quite a bit since I last been to these places.

Now could you excuse me while I log into facebook to 'revive' my people in restaurant city..haha (only ppl who play this game in restaurant city would understand).

hopefully my facebook doesn't change into Arabic when I go back

Was in Birmingham over the weekend. Went to meet up with WL who I haven't seen for 2.5 years. The first thing he said to me when I saw him at the rail station was, 'wa Janice, 你瘦了' (and he proceeded to make some movements to indicate that my chin was sharper). Lol. Happy I was to hear that :P

Went to Cadbury World which was a total waste of money. Wouldn't dream of going there again. not ever. The place was overcrowded, the factory tour was dull and the 'cadabra' ride was so boring that all I did was took pictures with my friends instead of being 'memerised' by the surroundings.

I was so busy taking pictures until I din notice this signpost in the ride.

from wiki

How I wish there would be falling chocs then I could grab as much as I can and it will make the whole trip worth it.

The only highlight of the trip was towards the end when each of us were given free liquid dairy milk chocolate to top with one selected confectionery. I was also given a daily milk chocolate bar and caramel chocolate bar (255kcal and 225kcal respectively). at least the chocolates there have already cost a few pounds ad. So it wasn't a complete waste of money.

We went back to Birmingham city for lunch and the 三烧饭 I had was really good! My friend said it is comparable to 4 seasons in London o_O. I cant exactly remember how 4 seasons was like but the roast duck was indeed juicy and crispy. yumyum. too bad no picture of it. After that we walked around the city and finally settled down in starbucks to escape the summer heat.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself that day with the great company of WL and his friends and I'm sure that I went back to Leeds a few pounds heavier =( sigghhhhhhhhhhhhhh
