This was the second site of the day; it was a 20 min walk from the hospital with the second trusty printed out Google map in my hand. On the way over I saw a tea shop so I went in, I very quickly realised they didn’t speak any of the Queens so I pointed at a picture of what was a cold tea drink. On leaving with my tea in a bag (don’t know why it was in a bag) I realised I had come away with bloody cold milk with added bloody sugar! I didn't drink much of that, the gag reflex made sure of it!

I found this site on flickr and thought it could be quite good, and I loved it. Again I don’t have any info on it but it's been mostly empty for some time, just a couple of units are still used including a food hall. In the basement it was full of old arcade machines covered in dust, and 2 units in the far corner still used. I walked past to see a guy on his own running some sort of karaoke bar, He just sat there the whole time belting out some tunes for me to explore by. It was very surreal and slightly sad.

Here is the video from Instagram I made down there so you can hear the guy singing away, quality ain't great as it's off the mobile

That's cracking mate. Enjoyed the write up too, a few karaoke classics and a bag of tea to explore by, brilliant haha (y)

I'd have done the same with the data-charge-dodging google maps printout too lol. Good stuff :)

I know I really messed up with the milk, every sip I wanted to be sick. But it was so hot I still drank half of it. haha

The site was awesome, just ashame couldn't get on the upper floors.
