This is my fourth time in Manchester and every time I find myself short of time to steal a couple of hours and head towards the Lake District. Only diff this time around I had the digital camera and managed to hook up with AirAsia pilots Suresh and Kelvin which had me going to the clubs which I had long avoided.
Manchester as a city is fascinating as the classic buildings share space with tastefully designed glass and steel structures sometimes growing symbiotically together. Yeah and I didn't have time to shoot any of these new buildings for comparison.
So here's a quick look at my fourth tour of duty in the city of Manchester.
This was a 20 foot steel tiger that was lurking in the Tigetiger club in Printworks. Drinking anecdotes - When we ordered a bottle of vodka, we got stunned looks from the waitress. "Excuse me but I'll have to ask my manager.." Seems Mat Sallehs over there buy shots only. Also you can't order a Flaming Lamborghini because its a fire hazard!!!! Can see them living it up there..Also - they don't accept 50 pound notes in clubs- seems they're easily forged. And you can't wear football jerseys into clubs. Fair enough because of the fiercely clannish club loyalties that lie there.
