Liverpool and Albert Docks

Ahoy ahoy and touched down at Manchester Airport.

Well, Manchester is not our first destination.

Manchester Airport Train Station

We need to get to Liverpool Lime Street Train Station first and settle down with the luggageSSSS.

Since we arrived Liverpool early on a lovely Sunday morning, we all decided to have a walk around town.

In front of 'Dunno What Name' Museum :D

To get to know the surroundings.

Radio City Tower

And the shopping centres!! LoL



And Apple Store for you mac's freaks!


And Liverpool Official Club Store!



We marked down the shops and we'll be back later for the shoppings.

First thing first, we did not fly all the way to UK for shopping.

We need to get dressed for my sister's convocation for the next day.

The best stylist doing at her very best :D




The convocation took place in one of the oldest cathedral in Liverpool city.


We were there quite early and not many people arrived yet.


FYI, it was never a free entrance into the convocation event. So my partner and I have a little bit of photoshoot around the area.

After approximately 1 hour later, its time for the most important moment for a group of graduates.

To fling the convocation hat up high as if you don't need it anymore!!

Throw Throw Throw!

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate my sister and her uni-mates for graduating! 

Best of luck to the future ahead of you.



That's that. And this has marked the beginning of our holiday/adventure/tour.

The next place we headed to the day after the convocation is Albert Dock's

The dock is a very beautiful place to visit with a lot of museums and exhibitions.

Most of them are free entrance unless stated otherwise.

You guys do know that there are many talented music artist came from Liverpool yea?

For example, Paul McCartney.

'The Yellow Submarine' by the BEATLES!


Believe it or not. They do have a yellow submarine. 

On the road.


And in the water.

I then realiased its a amphibious vehicle.


It reminds me of the Hovercraft in the Command and Conquer series. :P

Enjoy the rest of the photos while we were in Albert Docks.
