It’s been awhile since I last blog, so I thought a venue I can start blogging again is to review restaurants. To begin I will start with a restaurant I’ve been on 2 occasions: Harvester Lowry in Salford Quays, UK.
During my first visit in May 2012, we had a main course and a dessert. The main course was fairly average quality, but the dessert was terrible. Our sundae came melted and liquidity. When we confronted the manager to change it, the manager challenged and insulted our knowledge about how a sundae should be. In the end, we decided not to eat it and just pay the bill. At this point, the manager decided not to charge us for the sundae, which turned out to be a fair settlement.
Today, 23 Dec 2012, was our second visit; we thought we should give it a second chance. This round we only had main courses, and the service was as slow as ever, and the food was fairly average again, but the salad does not seem fresh. Furthermore, my partner complained her lamb was raw, which the waitress took it back to the kitchen for further cooking.
My verdict for Harvester Lowry in Salford Quays, UK in 2012 is as follows:
Cathedral Gardens in Manchester is a popular hang out for students and the locals. Looks like it is high time for the city council to replace the brown patches with fresh green grass.
Recently in the electronic consumers market, I realised 3D televisions seems to become more popular. I have to confess that I am not a fan of 3D television, but I do enjoy a good 3D movie. However, if you ask me to get a 3D television, currently I will say NO. Although 3D shows does give me that little more entertainment, but requiring me to wear that 3D glasses every time I want to watch a show is not practical and inconvenient. In short, I am lazy to wear the 3D glasses. YouGov.com reported that from their recent survey, 57% would watch more 3D movies if they did not have to wear 3D glasses. So I'm glad I'm not the odd one out.
I'm conducting a poll below to see how many of you will be interested to get a 3D television if money and space is not an issue, or may be you already have one.
I've been rushing pass this place every time I visit the University's Main Library. I never really stop to notice its surroundings; it is quite tranquil surprisingly. This time I did and see what I managed to capture! Grounds in front of John Rylands University Library, The University of Manchester.
Recently, I had been facing with constipation issues for the past few days. I remembered the last time I had this problem I had a cup of coffee and I managed to resolve the issue. So I tried it again today, and it really works! This is the second time this has happened to my system and I am amused by it. I would like to declare that I am not a regular coffee drinker, but I do consume coffee whenever I need it; such as when I need to burn the midnight oil, may be now even constipation!
I did some research on the Web about my problem and found that there are mixed opinions on this issue. Some suggest that you should avoid liquids containing caffeine - i.e., coffee or cola drinks. Others also reported the same experience that I do.
There is definitely a contradiction in suggestions from the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NDDIC) and the reports of Health effects of coffee on Wikipedia. So what is happening to my system? Why some others and me have these experiences, while some professional institution suggest differently? I would like to hear your views about this matter, and experiences you have with constipation and coffee, and if you are of a medical profession, I also would like to hear your input on this matter.
