Pick You Later | LC-A+ RL | Lomo Earl Grey 100
Having quite the obsession with the reality show American Pickers featuring a pair of professional pickers, Mike and Frank.
Pickers basically buzz around buying a whole load of junk/old stuffs/antiques and sell them to collectors for a profit. Singaporeans would probably label them as a bunch of karung guni men.
Anyhoo one of the common items they keep buying are old and rare signs, with the porcelain ones selling up to $500!
This sign will probably need to wait and simmer for another good 50 years before you can get any substantial dough out of it.
Back with a stab at positivity.

Finally! Ending the trip on a high with the derby match between Man United and Man City. With United on the verge of snatching the title back from City, this could be the match to drive the final nail into City’s coffin. Furthermore, this was my first ever live United match. So excited I could die!

We didn’t realise it then, but it was to be Sir Alex Ferguson’s last season in charge. Glad I was able to see his team in the flesh at least once, in his last Manchester derby no less.
LomoTravels: Reminiscing London + Manchester Day 4 / Of Tower of London, Spitalfields and Sunday UpMarket
This is gonna be a short one. As our trip was winding down, we either a) developed holiday fatigue, b) were too immersed in our activities or c) both a) and b) which resulted in us taking less and less photos.
After rushing through breakfast for the past few days, we had abit more time with the hotel buffet spread as the Tower of London opened at 10 on Sundays. Got our tickets with ease which were inclusive of a group tour (which ran at half hourly intervals) led by a Yeoman Warder. Also known as Beefeaters, the Yeoman Warders have been the guardians of the Tower since way back.

Although a huge crowd was gathering at the entrance where the guided tour was going to start, it didn’t deterred us from waiting it out. Spent a few minutes hanging around and taking snaps of the surrounding.
LomoTravels: Reminiscing London + Manchester Day 3 / Of Palace of Westminster and St Paul’s Cathedral
It’s the weekend! Not that we really care when we’re overseas, but the Palace of Westminster aka Houses of Parliament is only opened for tours on Saturdays during off peak season.
Had to rush through breakfast and adjust our planned travel route (scheduled closures of train stations are quite common) before reaching slightly later than our scheduled admission time.

After going through the inevitable security check there was still abit of distance to cover before entering the palace. From there we got a good view of Elizabeth Tower which is best known for the bell it houses – the Big Ben.

If the title didn’t make it clear enough for you, this post is all about football and Manchester United. So if you’re a hater, I would advise you to stay away.
If you have been an avid follower, you might have read about how my love affair with United started. As a kid, I have always dreamed about visiting Old Trafford and even stepping onto the pitch for the Red Devils.
I have finally realised the former! As for the latter, let’s just say I’ll be making myself available once Rooney is off.
