Winter Wonderland 2015 | Photo Diary

Hello, everyone. Yesterday, my friends and I went to Winter Wonderland. It's a great place to experience British Christmas. The lights were alluring to the eyes; the food, well, I don't know about the food because I didn't have that much appetite; the drinks, well, I guess they were nice. I only had water! 

Nonetheless, there are varieties of boot at market where people sell churos, waffles, pancakes, and pretzels- most of the festive foods where available there. Chips, burgers, & sausages where also available. The drinks ranges from mulled wine, beer, hot chocolate and other festive drinks. Basically, mostly Christmas drinks and food is available there. It is Winter Wonderland, what can you say? 

There are also different entertainments, rides and you feel very festive with the different Christmas songs that are played on different areas. My friends and I had dinner at this cabin where they sell, fish & chips, and other stuff. I can’t remember what it’s called.  We then searched for churros. We also planned to go on the rides but we ended up not going because we were too full and we didn’t want to vomit while on the ride! Can you imagine that?

We bumped in to a lot of people and some of them where form the other parts of the globe. But it was a good day! I enjoyed it.

This was taken inside the The Ice Kingdom. The ticket for teen/adults was £10/pp. It was -8 degrees! It was colder than our refrigerator at home. BRRRR. There were different sculpted ice inside & an ice slide which my friends and I didn't experience because the queue was very long.

Swan Lake: The Birmingham Royal Ballet

Hello, everyone! Hope you're all doing well. It's been a week since I went to watch Swan Lake. The Birmingham Royal Ballet performed it at The Grand Opera House in Belfast. I can't tell you who the casts are because I don't have the book with me but I will tell you when I do.

I booked the ticket at the last minute because I didn't know about it. My friend Kaye posted it on Facebook and since I was going home (Northern Ireland) for the weekend, I thought, "I might as well watch it." I adore ballet and was I’ve only seen performance on the TV. 

I invited my cousin to watch it but he wasn't available so, I asked my brother to go with me. He wasn't keen about and but I dragged him with me! Haha. He described ballet as "hopping like rabbits."

It was a great night! It started at 7:30 pm and finished at around 10:30pm. 

I said on my social media post "[Act IV The lakeside] The music and the costumes used were impeccable. I love how they wore 19th Century Royal fashion on Acts 1 and 3 as their costumes. Everything was ingeniously designed; the gems and diamonds on their crowns twinkled like stars in the night sky, the gowns and capes draped on the floor seamlessly, the detailed sequins gleamed brightly and, the well-tailored tutus bloomed fully."

It allured my eyes and my ears. The art, the music, the beauty, and the feelings that were portrayed put me in awe. It was a memorable night!

I believe that is carrot cake and Venti Honey and Almond Hot Chocolate.
