Today we spent the day in Belfast, shopping of course! Our little 'China Stroller' was put into action once again. We arrived in Cregagh at noon where we got a fish box from a little chip shop on the Cregagh Road. It was some delicious fish, chips and onion rings, I tell ye. It reminded me of the times when we used to get a 'meal-in-the-box' when we went to visit our Uncle G, Aunt D and Cousins on a Saturday night, the only difference was that this one didn't have the mushy peas or battered mushrooms! Another thing on the menu in that little chip shop was a battered Mars bar. One of the school girls ahead of me got one. Actually, over here almost all the Chinese restaurants serve battered and deep fried pineapple or bananas as a dessert. I might add that they are absolutely yummy! Somehow deep frying fruit doesn't seem nearly as gross as deep frying a Mars bar! After Cregagh we worked our way into the new and fabulous Victoria Square, which is right in the heart of the downtown shopping district. It is an amazing new state of the art outdoor shopping mall, although you wouldn't know it from the glass roof overhead, definitely a good idea for the rainy days! It also has an elevator that goes up to a viewing tower where you can see all over Belfast city. Lilah and I had a super day shopping with Nono and we ended it on a high note, in Nando's...mmm, yummy!
