Manchester becoming the best city in the UK!

Yay! My “Second Home” Made It To The Top!

My daughter, Wynne, shared this article with me. I didn’t know that my “second home” (See here for previous blog) is becoming the best city in the UK.

Am I glad? Yes and no.

Yes – it becomes famous, not only because of the two football clubs, namely Manchester United and Manchester City, but it has other well balanced attractions in history, arts, modern entertainment and cultures.

No – with the Malaysian ringgit earning capacity, it may be becoming too expensive for me to visit this city.

Anyway, congratulations Manchester, I am proud of your progress and development since I left you in 1987.

In fact some friends commented that we looked like actor and actress in a Korean drama 🙂 I don’t think so. Well, may be if we are not wearing glasses, we will be more “qualified”? Hahah……..What do you think?
