I miss my daily life in Newcastle and I think this feeling wont fade away. There are two things that I miss the most of living in Newcastle; its serenity.. and its calm pace of life. I miss walking and running through the pedestrian path along the New Bridge Street in the morning to catch the morning class. I miss stopping by for a while in Bubble Cha to buy Jasmine Milk Tea before afternoon class. I miss entering the university’s Armstrong Building where most of my daily classes were taken place. I miss studying inside ARMB PC Cluster 2.96, listening to David Baines talking for hours about editing newspaper. I miss eating in Old Library Building canteen next to Armstrong building, eating a standard English breakfast for 4£ (also the cheapest proper meal there) with Marina in the canteen. I miss going to the city centre which is only located about 200 yards away from my university building, and seeing people walking around – selling flowers – selling fruits in the middle of city centre’s alleyway. I miss going to the Grainger Market just to buy a cup of Americano and enjoying it alone while listening to people’s chattering in the market. I miss walking slowly towards my flat unit at St Anns Close, walking slowly while enjoying the calmness of the city.
The calm and peaceful St Anns Close, the two floor flat building where I lived with Elvira and Irfan, my flatmate. It was St’s Anns Close view after raining, so peaceful..
This was view from my room in one morning during Spring. One of my favorite view. There were so many mornings where I started by staring at this view before finally taking a bath and going to campus.
This was view behind my room’s window pane… Ahh..I dont know how to express this feeling, but I do really miss this view and spot.
This is my flat building’s alleyway, so peaceful. Its not a favorite place for young student to live. This is a place where many elderly people are living. But me, vira and irfan were okay with it. Maybe because of the majority people who are living here are elderly, this flat is so peaceful. I will always miss this place.
This is a part of my university building. On the left side there is quadrangle, on the right side there is Armstrong building that I have mentioned earlier. This calm and peaceful view was university’s view during summer holiday, when most of students going away for vacation. But not for me, this time, I had three months intensive training with press association. Unlike others student who were mostly taking a vacation, I and my classmates had to go to the class everyday. I think I am going to write about my training days on my next blog post (hopefully).
A peaceful late Sunday afternoon at around Monument located in Newcastle’s city centre. The girl who brought white plastic bag was Elvira, my flatmate. On the weekend, we frequently walking around the city centre, going to Grainger market to buy groceries, or going to Hi You, an Asian shop where we could buy Asian food and Asian’s ingredients, even Tempe…we could find it there.
This is Grainger Market, my favorite place in Newcastle. I cant count how many times I bumped to this market, purposely or just spontaneously.. Yeah just because I love this market so much. Instead of going to the mall (Newcastle Eldon Square), that is located next to the market, I prefer going to this market really. The old and classic market where I could buy cheap and fresh vegetable and fruit and cofeee. How happy. The feeling of strolling around the Grainger Matket’s alley, I remember it clearly.
If I like you enough, I will definitely bring you to this coffee shop. This is my favorite coffee shop that I mentioned earlier before. I would be happy just by sitting here and enjoying a cup of Americano. The thing that makes like this coffee shop is the coffee taste is really good. I think Americano in Pumphrey is the best Americano so far that I have tasted. And also because the location is inside Grainger Market and that is just perfect (for me).
