Whoops

Went to Glasgow (again?!) for the weekend, this time I stayed 2 nights! To say it was enjoyable is an understatement. To be honest, Glasgow somehow suits me better (in a way) than Edinburgh, probably because I'm a city-kid from young. All the traffic, both human and vehicles, the number of high street shops, the vibrant environment on a Saturday afternoon, and the sheer size of the city.

The main point of going there was for Radiance, a biennial celebration which forms part of Glasgow's Winterfest. Not good, the exhibits were in spocks of buildings spread out throughout the eastern part of the city centre, we went to 3 of them out of a dozen or so and decided to screw the rest and go to George Square instead.

George Square is in stark contrast to the previous buildings that we visited. Sigh, it's times like this I wish the camera on my phone was not 1.3M and that my old camera was still working. With the month-long Winterfest celebrations going on, it's been converted into a funfair themed square smelling of Angus beef, German sausages and deep fried donuts. Aberdeen Angus is simply the best, omg just the thought of it makes me salivate. I don't quite understand this but there are German Christmas markets in both Glasgow's Argyle Street and Edinburgh's The Mound by the National Galleries in their month-long pre-Christmas season.

One thing to note is that the Glaswegian accent is deep, way deeper than the mild Edinburghian and Fife accent. and I took time trying to comprehend it.

Well, that was the height of my stay there, apart from suddenly overcoming a recent 8-month slump in DotA by improving my overall skills and control, and watching one of the most kickass movies of all time.. American Gangster!

Anyway, I'm starving, so I'm going out to get a pizza and microchips now. Plus, I've got a backlog of posts waiting to be put up. So, keep an eye out for this space!
