I travelled a long distance to get to Wing Yip! Well I took 2 buses just sitting there with my MP3 player on… It’s about an hour plus journey from where I live (but it depends on when the bus decides to come!). When I got off the 154 bus at Fiveways, I almost forgot the way to the place (only because I went via two different routes on two previous occasions!)…

Wing Yip is very different to China Town (well obviously). It’s everything rolled into one! One restaurant, one supermarket, a Chinese kawaii store, agencies / business centre upstairs and a parking lot (which I think is dangerous for pedestrians as there’s no pavement for us journey makers).

I went all the way to Wing Yip to try and find frozen prawn cheung fun – but they didn’t have any! T_T So disappointed at my misfortune. In the supermarket, there are aisles and aisles of food, and a warehouse like area where they sell all the bulky stuff…

But thankfully in the Chinese kawaii store New Times City they sell things that I was looking for!! (^_^)b
|New Times City Shop – I love it!!!|
|My USB fan for £4.50|
|Hello Kitty vacuum flask for £12.99 ^_^|
So not a complete disappointment by travelling all the way there! It’s a place where people around the deep south would travel to instead of going to China Town (and I travel there to go to the Chinese kawaii shop ^_^).
Buses: 119, 154, 157, 289 (Get off at Fiveways)
Nearest Station: Waddon Station

The kawaii shop is gone now I'm so sad! I loved it so much (╥﹏╥)
Oh no!! Really?!! Will need to find out where it went to… Haven't been there for a long time.
According to their website they are just closed for a holiday and will be open again on Aug 15th.http://www.newtimescity.co.uk/
Ah! That's good news. Thanks for sharing… didn't even know they had a website!
