Before anyone misinterprets the title, it’s actually cheers to the city – not the football club alright?
But admittedly, I did go for the stadium tour at Anfield – however that’s gonna be on another entry.
Here’s one interesting fact – when you thank someone in Liverpool, say “Cheers” instead of “Thank you”. The Liverpudlians rarely say “Thank you”.
Okay, so I was at Liverpool as well – where its famous icon is a lamb.
A lamb called Super Lamb Banana. What a name right?
Actually, there are many of them – in different versions. There is one with beard and glasses drawn to depict Liverpool Football Club’s manager.
They call it Baa-nitez! Baaaaa!
Besides that, the city even has weird decorations around, like this…
Old cases stacked together, forming a pile of… junks? More of a decoration I guess.
And among that pile, there is a old Mac case as well. Is that what they used to keep Macbooks in the olden days? I don’t know lah.
Anyway, here are some pictures taken of certain places in Liverpool.
St. George’s Hall.
The Liverpool Cathedral. It’s really one huge structure and it can be seen from almost every part of the city. Unfortunately there was a thick fog when I was around.
Here’s another view of the cathedral from afar. So distinctive.
Besides that cathedral, I also visited another one as well.
Although the Metropolitan Cathedral (kinda blurred by the fog) is not as massive as Liverpool Cathedral, its internal architecture is really unique.
Very beautifully designed, I must say. Perhaps it’s a more modern one.
Liverpool’s very own China Town. Unlike having dim sums at Manchester’s China Town, I didn’t try any Chinese cuisine here.
The Liverpool Eye as well.
Albert Dock is probably one of the famous sites on Liverpool. Initially I thought it was just an ordinary dock where ships and boats can only be seen.
But I was wrong.
In fact, there are many attractions located around that area. Museums and exhibitions in particular.
One example is the Merseyside Maritime Museum. In there, you’ll learn about different types of ships and how they are built. There’s a section dedicated specially for the famous Titanic too.
Then, the Beatles Story Exhibition. I didn’t enter it though – not really a Beatles fan.
There’s also a ride called Yellow Duck Marine that departs from Albert Dock every morning. The ride uses a special vehicle that can operate both on land and water.
Besides Albert Dock, I also managed to see the University of Liverpool.
This is the main building of the university. Doesn’t look like one right?
Anyway, moving around the city is quite convenient – since it isn’t that big. There are pedestrian pathways located almost everywhere.
If I’m not wrong, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes walk from different locations. Therefore, there’s no need for any public transportation in Liverpool city.
Oh yeah, as I was exploring the city, I saw some thing very familiar. Something that resembles a phrase widely used in Malaysia.
So Dato’ Seri Najib Razak, was 1Malaysia inspired by Liverpool?
Anyway, cheers for reading! =)
