Pictures of Birmingham in the Festive Xmasy Winter

This year i liked birmingham much much better than London…

The lights, the atmoshphere… much much better. I have a feeling that the stupid credit crunch in the UK has hit the lights in london badly, u can feel no festive spirit in them…

Anyways, for Asha’s lovers (like moi)… Ashas exists in Birmingham. it is more of a bar than a cosey restuarant and their idea of mild spices means order three bottle of water ane d a tub of yoghurt to soothe your taste buds. The portions are much more smaller than in Q8 and the popadamus and chutney complimentry starters are not so customary nor complimantery… but i liked the idea of having my favourite indian restuarant in Q8 just a train ride away.

In birmingham also there exists Cadbury World! if u havent paid them a visti… well, what are you waiting for? You walk in the factory and you smell the overwhelming heavenly scent of cadbury being wrapped all around you… mmmmmmmm i have no pix of it im afraid. My bad…

It is much more fun to shop at the Selfridges in Birmingham… it is more open and wide, more modern… the way selfridges of the future should be. and all the item there are untouched!!!

Let me share the pix now… nothing i type will equal what the pix will convey… keep in mind that i am so depressed now my tears wont dry… i just want to hob on the next train back…
