Macau / Hong Kong Trip – Day 05

Took me a whole month to finish up my Hong Kong post it seems.
Too busy working and watching netflix, sleeping in and going out.

Our flight heading back home from Hong Kong was at 6pm so there was still time to walk around before we went off to airport.

#1 For starters, we had a buffet breakfast at Hotel Icon. The ambiance was really comfortable, there were only few people and selection of food was vary.

#2 Cakes.

#3 And breads.

#4 Smoked salmon and humus.

#5 Bicher Muesli in a jar, how cute.

#6 Dim sum’s a must in Hong Kong.

Breakfast at Hotel Icon was great, unlike Macau Sheraton’s breakfast.
If you have extra bucks to spend and extra space in your tummy, you might want to try their breakfast when you’re there.

#7 After our breakfast, we went all the way back to Central to eat my beef brisket noodle but turns out they aren’t open yet. :(

#8 We went to Duddell Street to check out gas powered street lamp and there’s only four left in Hong Kong, all located at Duddell street.

#9 How historical right?

#10 After a few snaps we went to the infamous Starbucks just a stairs away.

#11 Is this the coolest Starbucks or what?

‘In June 2009, Hong Kong retail design store G.O.D collaborated with Starbucks and created a store with a “Bing Sutt Corner” at their store on Duddell Street. It is a concept that fuses the retro bing sutt, a Hong Kong teahouse style with the contemporary look of a coffeehouse.’

#12 Old school Hong Kong style cafe.




#16 Love instax. :)

#17 Just showing off my floral shorts which I really like. Heh


#18 After getting Chai Latte from Starbucks we met up with Fatty’s sister again for a quick lunch near Hung Hom. This is Fatty’s fish-something-something-noodle.

#19 And this is my beef brisket which I super love because it was so goooood!

#20 Then there’s more eating. See, that’s how I claim the title of an eating monster. Rawr.

#21 Australia Dairy Co. is a really famous char chan teng.

#22 Didn’t get to try this though.

#23 Menu I cant seem to understand.

#24 This milk was good! But Hokkaido’s better, heh.

#25 Scramble egg that looks so simple yet very fulfilling and satisfying.

#26 Mine’s with ham.

#27 Milk tea with Fatty on the background enjoying our spaghetti.

#28 D: The amount of food we ate, my goodness.

That was kinda the last meal in Hong Kong before we leave except for a quick meal at the airport.

#29 That’s where I found out this is the best milk in the world but it was so expensive! HKD20 for one, pfft. Let me know if I can find it here in KL, I WANT IT!

#30 Ending my post with a picture of my luggage bag that I bought from Zhu Hai for only Rm90. That’s the best deal! :)

Hong Kong is a great place and it somehow feels close to heart because I’ve been watching TVB dramas almost all my life but it is also a very expensive place to go.
Don’t think I’ll be going back to Hong Kong anytime soon and now, where’s the next destination?

After serious calculation, total damage to my savings account is Rm4000. /dead

Macau / Hong Kong Trip – Day 04

You can’t blame me for taking this long to finish up my Hong Kong post, I’ve been working a lot I almost couldn’t catch up on my sleep.

We moved from 99 Bonham at Sheung Wan to Icon Hotel at East Tsim Tsa Tsui, another side of Hong Kong.
We choose Hotel Icon for aesthetic reason and also the distance between Belinda’s (Fatty’s sister) hostel and our hotel.

#1 Hotel Icon is a very new hotel built in 2011, founded and owned by Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

#2 Not only does it look nice and clean, Hotel Icon smells really good too.

#3 Vertical garden growing along walls that will make you stop, stare, and admire.


Service was A plus, friendly and helpful.

#5 We booked Icon 36 Harbour for RM980 including breakfast and they upgraded our room to Club 36 Harbour for us. :)

And here’s what you get if you book a Club 36 Harbour room :

*36 square metres *Satellite, i-cable and NOW TV channels *Twin or King bed *Blu-ray disc player *Complimentary in-room bar & snacks (replenished daily) *Nespresso coffee machine *Complimentary WiFi within hotel area *BOSE sound dock *WiFi phone with free local calls *3-in-1 printer *40” high definition flat screen TV *Complimentary digital newspapers and magazines on personal tablet or smartphone (Choose from 2,000+ newspapers and magazines)

Everything from the bar is free, including beers and snacks! They really know how to win their customer’s heart.

#6 Si Pendek.


#8 The only thing I dislike about Hotel Icon is their room carpet. That jigsaw carpet really really looks ugly to me. Not ugly meh?


#10 Mad love their toilet design!

It seems like a bad idea after all when Fatty created this interest in me to try out hotels because I will always end up saying ‘Next time our toilet we do it this way ah!’ or ‘I want our house to look this way next time.’
But of course, he cant really be bothered about all my next-times and I-wants.

#11 The best damn thing? Watching tv while bubble bathing!


#13 Room’s harbour view.

After checking out our room, we met up with Fatty’s sister for lunch.
We were supposed to have our lunch at Caprice, Four Seasons Hotel but turned out people who lives in Hong Kong do their lunch at a 3 Michelin star restaurant like it’s a kopitiam or something. It was fully booked on a Monday lunch time. Mmkay.

We were actually deciding between Caprice and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon because both were given 3 stars but since Caprice was full, we headed to the latter.

#14 There’s a distinguish difference between the two restaurants. L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon setting is more to casual and contemporary dining while Caprice has a grander setting.

#15 Complimentary bread, they were really cute and mini.

#16 Amuse bouche that whet my appetite.

#17 My main; lobster risotto.

#18 Really really good apricot dessert. I don’t normally go for dessert during fine dine unless it comes with a set and even if it does comes with a set, a rarely like it. This was different, it was really good with cinnamon and vanilla ice-cream without being too sweet. Just perfect.

Belinda and I ordered three course each while Fatty ordered four course.
Three course set lunch is price at HKD568 and four course is priced at HKD668. I think the bill came up to about Rm900+ for the three of us.
Although the food was good (as per all the fine dine I’ve tried), I sincerely do not think that what I was served that day deserve a three Michelin star. Bistro a Table was just as good, in my opinion.

After trying Hong Kong’s one Michelin star dim sum and now three Michelin star French fine dine, I’d say the Michelin star given to these Hong Kong restaurants cant really be trusted. I’d expect a 3 Michelin star to give me a wow factor but that wasn’t it.
Belinda went to her class after our lunch while Fatty and I went back to our hotel to enjoy the most out of it.

#19 Meet up again after that to eat MORE at Hung Hom area.

#20 Mammy pancake (kai tan zai) at Hung Hom, heard it’s famous among the students.


#22 It tasted really good and crispy, I sometimes crave for it.

#23 We then head over to a famous dumpling shop called 上海飽餃店 for some hot and steamy dumplings.

#24 Menu on the wall. It’s really nice to have a boyfriend who can read chinese or else I’ll be so lost.

#25 Scallion pancake, not quite my thing.

#26 Xiu long bao.

The ‘sang zin bao’ was really good but Fatty told me that day it wasn’t as good as the first time he tried it.
Sometimes we have our bad days don’t we.
I wanted to go to Avenue of Stars after our meal so off we went.

#27 Lots and lots of meat and the uncle asked Fatty if he’s visiting his mother in law and if he wants to add any dishes lol.

#28 Avenue of stars.

#29 I watched Symphony of Light while the two Tays waited for me cause they weren’t interested haha.


#31 Oh why so blur!

#32 Demonstrating how robot stands, haha. Awkward, awkward.

#33 The Tays.

#34 You just cant stay away from food when you’re in Hong Kong. Or in my case, I can never stay away from food wherever I am. Mak’s Noodle, famous for wantan mee.

#35 Oh hi there.

#36 Wantan mee with wantans hiding underneath the mee.

#37 Shrimp roe noodles or ha zi mee as the Hongkies call it.

Never had such an expensive wantan noodles, about Rm20 per bowl. T_T

#38 Last stop for the night at Aqua Spirit for drinks.


#40 Fatty’s drink and my Bailey which I shared with Belinda. I drank less than one third and passed it to her because I don’t want to get tipsy. Sometimes I wonder, why cant I drink? Why my body cannot tolerate alcohol pfft.

Macau / Hong Kong Trip – Day 03

Most of the time, people think we’re crazy for always choosing different hotels during our vacation instead of just one.
To them, it’s a hassle having to check in and out of hotels everyday and not to mention travelling from hotel A to hotel B with more than one luggage.
I know all these hassle can be quite a turn off but I’d say a little hassle is always worth it.

Besides visiting new countries and places, learning their culture, savoring local foods and what not, experiencing different hotel is one of the many things I look forward to.
Other than the good experience, staying in different hotels gave me a better idea on how I want my future house to be IF I’M LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE A HOUSE WHEREBY I CAN CONTROL THE WAY IT LOOKS.

On the third day, we moved from Mini Hotel at Central to 99 Bonham at Sheung Wan.

Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners envisioned a sculptural form for 99 Bonham, using sleek proportions that resemble the scale of an industrial design project. The monolithic glass façade and reflective tiles bring an almost abstract quality to the building, like that of a desirable object.

It was a very good stay equipped with high quality furniture that exudes a sense of elegance.
Shower amnesties were from Locitane, bed sheets from Frette, just perfect.
There are three different rooms to choose from, standard suite, premier suite and deluxe suite.

#1 I booked deluxe suite because it has the highest floor zone from Agoda and I was charged at Rm540 for a night. It was supposed to be Rm700+ but my Agoda rewards managed to give me a better price.

But my suggestion is this; just go for standard suite (the cheapest choice) because there isn’t a point staying on the highest floor zone without a good Hong Kong view. Might as well save some extra bucks.

#2 Dining area. 99 Bonham can make quite a perfect place for a honeymoon staycation.

#3 Bathroom with mirrors everywhere.

#4 Mirrorception.

#5 There are rooms with bathtub and there are rooms without and if you’re a bathtub freak like I am, you need to make your request.

#6 Kitchenette area with stove, microwave, mini fridge, and all the utensils you need.

#7 View from our room which totally explains why you don’t have to stay so high up.

After checking in 99 Bonham, we took MTR to Mongkok and waited for Foon and Victor at Langham Place.
Both of them went all the way back to Tung Chung after clubbing which is really really far away.

#8 We agreed on having dim sum and nothing attracted me more than this one Michelin star dim sum joint. (But meh.)

Tim Ho Wan has a few branches and only two were given one Michelin Star, the one at Mongkok and another one at Sham Sui Po.

#9 The one at Mongkok shifted to Olympus plaza. I’ve been hoping to go to a very old scool Hong Kong dim sum joint but turns out it was the total opposite.
There were long queues when we arrived, so we waited for about 20 minutes to half an hour.

#10 Hong Kong style ‘Loh Mai Kai’ which was huge!






#16 Fried lobak or ‘zin lobak gou’ which was the best because it was full with lobak.

Not that the dim sum we ate at Tim Ho Wan wasn’t good, quality wise it was really better than what I had in Malaysia (the cheap dim sums) but it really wasn’t THAT good that they deserve a one star from Michelin.
Fatty told me the dim sum joint he usually goes to was better and it’s the old school dim sum restaurant type that I wanted to go to. :(
Tim Ho Wan definitely is not the best so don’t bother trying and queuing up.

#17 After dim sum we went over to K11 Mall for Paul Lafayet.

#18 I mean how can I not try Paul Layefet’s creme brulee, they are so so goooooooooooood!

#19 We then rushed back to Sheung Wan for a tea break but it turned out to be another eating session. Classified is really famous among the gwailos as you can tell from the picture, and also among the hipster I assume.


#21 That’s where they store all their cheeses.

#22 Ordered ravioli, burger, and pizza to share among us four. Food was okay but I’d much rather keep my tummy space for some real Hong Kong food.

I cant remember the price but everything was expensive. A plate of this is for HKD88 and a plate for that is about HKD98 so you do the math.
After our early dinner we went our separate ways, so Fatty and I followed our itinerary to No.9 Central Pier.

#23 One of my Hong Kong’s trip highlight was Aqua Luna BUT THEY WEREN’T OPERATING ON THAT DAY BECAUSE THEY WERE BOOKED FOR ASTON MARTIN FUNCTION! Really screw this Aston Martin. A glimpse of Aqua Luna was the only thing I had, pfft.

Aqua Luna is a traditional hand built Chinese junk which has been restored and is now serving as a bar.
There are different packages offered by Aqua Luna.
One day unlimited pass from 12pm-5pm is HKD100 for adult and HKD80 for children.
For evening cruises starting from 5.30pm, ticket is price at HKD195 for adults and HKD155 for children.
The package that I initially picked was ‘Symphony of Lights Cruise’, priced at HKD260 for adults and HKD210 for children.

Symphony of Light Cruise starts sailing at 7.30 from Tsim Sha Tsui pier and other than enjoying the sailing, guest will get to enjoy Symphony of Light too, on a junk.
Imagine my disappointment.
Okay, keep it for next time and my Ngong Ping too which Fatty successfully talked me out of it.

#24 Took pictures at the pier and off we went.

#25 Walked around Sheung Wan area.

#26 And we came across TenRen!! OMG I miss TenRen ever since I came back from Melbourne.

#27 Walked all the way to tram stop because I requested Fatty to bring me for a tram ride.

#28 I actually quite like taking trams. Heh.

#29 Tram driver offered to take a picture for me. :)

#30 Love how old the tram looks.


#32 We both were really full but I wanted to try Butao Ramen so badly I didn’t care. There were 4 flavours to choose from and I picked Pesto Ramen. If Fatty weren’t that full he will go for original. He always likes his ramen in its most original flavour.

#33 That’s how you choose your ramen, flavour, with eggs or without, with seaweed or without and so on.

#34 Butao Ramen shifted to two streets away from it’s old location and it does look a lot like a ramen bar in Japan.


#36 Pesto ramen with two extra eggs.

#37 Eggs were cooked perfectly and the ramen was good too.

After eating, we headed to Mongkok for a walk before calling it a day.
We went to Ladies street and I was hoping to buy a thing or two home but it turned out to be too expensive.
About Rm100 for a bag at a place like pasar malam, that’s quite a joke. Haha.

#38 Love the horizontal street lights.

#39 For the male.

#40 Polo bun which I almost forgot to eat.

#41 Stuffed half a polo bun before going to bed with a very full tummy.

Macau / Hong Kong Trip – Day 02

The night before was a long day, I did my usual bathtub-thing and fall asleep on the bed later on while the guys went to casino.
The next day, we ate hotel’s buffet breakfast before heading out and to be frank their breakfast sucks.
So if you ever choose Sheraton as your hotel in Macau, stay away from their breakfast. I’d much rather pay and have much better food in Macau.

#1 The only bowl of noodle which can keep my mouth shut, not that it’s really good but the beef soup keeps my tummy warm.

I wasn’t in my best-est mood because I had food poisoning right before my trip (meh) and I wasn’t entirely recover when I was at Macau.
After breakfast we were on the move to the place I most look forwarded to, Macau Giant Panda Pavilion at Coloane.

#2 Panda!!! I was really excited and happy because that day was the first (and currently the only) time I saw a real panda right in front of me. I couldn’t contain my happiness, I just kept smiling and omg-ing cause panda is pretty irresistible.

If you’re planning for a Macau trip and you’ve never seen a real panda, this place is definitely a must go. Or a must go if you simply just love Panda.
My friend went to Ocean Park in Hong Kong and waited for the panda for an hour and all she could see was the cctv hahaha!
Kesian her.
Another reason why Macau Giant Panda Pavilion must be put in your itinerary is because the entrance fee is so cheap you can’t pass this by. It’s only MOP10 per entrance which is lesser than RM5. #saywhat!

I also heard that Malaysia is gonna loan two pandas from China and the entrance fee will be like Rm100+ and although I don’t know how true this is but I figured Rm5 for an entrance do me no harm.

#3 See!!!!! I literally died of it’s cuteness.

#4 I wish I could have the panda as my pet, then I can lay it on all day all night like a beanbag. :D

Here’s a little tip : The best time to visit according to my research is during morning because that’s when the panda eat their breakfast.
For the entire time, this panda was just eating and eating and munching on the bamboo leaves.

#5 If you come at another timing, I don’t know what you’ll get but probably this. Sleeping far far away.

There are a few more animals around like monkeys and all that which makes the MOP10 I paid even more worth it than it already is.
After ooh-ing and aah-ing over the pandas, we head back to Taipa and went over to Venetian.

#6 Venetian is really big and spacious but I wasn’t very much interested because first, I cant shop and second (I don’t know why) this somehow just kept reminding me of Genting’s First World.

Venetian was also themed on Venice which from what I remembered look nothing like Venice so…..
Big space, expensive shops, just really not my thing.
There’s one thing that impressed me though, the gondoliers were real (unlike the one in Genting) and they will serenade you with a song or two.

#7 Lord Stow’s was the reason as to why I want to go to Venetian.

#8 I so want one right now!!

Lord Stow’s is very famous for their Portuguese egg tart and once you take a bite, you can clearly see why there’s a queue right outside.
After Lord Stow’s we took a ferry to Hong Kong and that’s when shit happened.
Rain happened I mean.

#9 For the first night we booked Mini Hotel at Central (there’s two) and it sure does live up to it’s name, mini.
Of course, I’ve expected it to be that mini from the beginning, we only paid HKD550 (RM250).

#10 Mini Hotel’s waiting area.

#11 Though the room is very small but I like the idea that they put in effort into decorating their lounge area making it as comfortable as possible.

#12 It’s just nice.

#13 Stayed on the 10th floor.

#14 What you see here in the picture is the entire room, hahaha!

#14 This is mini-er than mini! I’m fine with small rooms since I’m very petite so the size of it doesn’t really bother me. If you’re big size or claustrophobic you might want to reconsider. And yes, the washroom/bathroom is covered only with glass aherm. I guess this will be fine for couples (let’s be real here) but if you’re travelling with your bff I don’t think glass-covered bathroom will make you feel comfortable.

Also if you look at the toilet bowl, you can’t sit on it and close the glass door unless you sit side way (which is what I did HAHA) BUT my fat boyfriend couldn’t sit side way so he did his ‘business’ without the door close while I was sleeping. I woke up suddenly prolly because of the smell and he gave me this innocent look and said ‘sorry sorry, I can’t close the door and I cant sit side way like you did. sorry’.
I wanted to kill him right then but thinking back now I feel like laughing at his reaction hahaha!

#15 Though small, the room has everything you need. There’s tv, hair dryer, and a boiler. Oh wait there’s also a safe underneath the bed.

#16 If you’re fatter than fatty, I suggest you not book Mini Hotel at Central because the shower area might not fit.

Mini Hotel at Central though small but the location make up for it. 3 minutes walk to Lan Kwai Fong, 5 minutes walk to The Peak Tram station, 10 minues walk to IFC, and 5 minutes car ride from Macau Ferry Terminal. How great is that?

#17 After settling down we headed to Sing Heung Yuen (勝香園), one of the very few dai pai dongs left in Hong Kong for a quick lunch.
Sing Heung Yuen is just right opposite the all time famouse Kau Kee beef noodle.

It was suppose to be an enjoyable walk from our hotel whereby I explore the streets of Hong Kong for the first time but it rained. Mtfk. Haha sorry for the rudeness but damn!

#18 The simplest tomato and beef noodle, HKD26. From what I’ve noticed, Hong Kong’s food portion is huge! Two person can definitely share a bowl.

#19 Crispy toast that turned out to be too crispy for my braces.

#20 Walked around Soho for a bit and I definitely like it there. Soho and Sheung Wan is love.

#21 Went into Abercrombie and Fitch to look at chandeliers and muscular guys. One minute I went in these guys were wearing their denim shirts and the next they weren’t wearing any shirts. I mean what kind of job is that, showing off muscles haha! But at least they look good, their muscles match their height and it’s not overdone. Guys who overdo it looks like they’re gonna tumble any minute lol.

#22 While walking towards The Peak Tram station.

Two way tram ticket to The Peak costs HKD75 (RM32) which is not expensive at all.
We went up on a Saturday night and the queue going up and coming down was long. I cant quite feel my legs then.

#23 I have a thing for trams.

#24 Since the weather isn’t at it’s best, I was afraid I couldn’t get a clear view from The Peak but thank God the view was quite clear that night.

#25 Super pale me and fatty. I wasn’t feeling too well, it was raining and The Peak was cold and windy due to the rain. Walking the whole day mostly under the rain didn’t help.

#26 Cold die. How am I suppose to go to a place with 0 degree Celsius.

#27 The boys and a umbrella from Circle K which is a very lousy umbrella I must say.

#28 Because it kept flipping and flipping it gets so annoying!

Had dinner at Tsui Wah after The Peak with Foon before the night really begins.

#29 Fatty’s champagne milk tea.

#30 Cutest cup ever for my nai cha.

#31 So I heard Tsui Wah have very good Hainanese chicken rice and when it comes to chicken rice, I can’t quite say no. But damn, it wasn’t half as good as what we have here in Malaysia.

Tsui Wah is overly price and the food was mediocre so don’t bother.

#32 Changed and headed to Lan Kwai Fong which to me is KL’s Changkat.


#34 As usual I was the only one who wasn’t drinking.

After one round of beers at Lan Kwai Fong, my man wanted to try Hong Kong’s club so off we went. We decided on the club called Play.
Clubbing in Hong Kong is extremely expensive! Cover charge is price at around HKD300 to HKD400 per person without drinks and a glass of alcohol costs about HKD100. Clubbing in Malaysia suddenly became so much cheaper.

#35 Play was pretty awesome. There were lots of pretty people there that night, most looked like models. The gwailos were all tall and handsome, Foon and I couldn’t stop staring.

#36 But my Fatty also not bad lah.

#37 So she said Play was the best club she went to in Hong Kong and it was really pretty good. I’d say a lot better than Butter Factory, so go figure.

I was having fun until I became too tired and cant wait to hit the sack.
It was a very very long day.

Macau / Hong Kong Trip – Day 01

There’s these two countries I actually never thought of going for a very long time, Hong Kong and Japan.
Hong Kong has always been giving me this ‘overly-crowded’ feeling (same goes to Tokyo) and not to mention overly priced.
For many years, Hong Kong just doesn’t interest me and I cant explain why. As for Japan, I just hate the idea that Japanese used to be cruel people during war time. I know right, but I cant help feeling that way lol.
This, my best friend knows best cause I’ve been that way since high school.

But my mindset changed as I grow and I just want to visit wherever and whenever I have the ability to.
Also since our friend Victor is at China, we planned a visit.

5 days, 4 nights and the first night was spent roaming Macau.
Instead of buying a return ticket to Hong Kong, I suggested that we buy two one way tickets.
So we arrived in Macau from Lcct and departed from Hong Kong to Lcct and that way, we get to save a little on the ferry by just buying a one-way ticket. Get to save about Rm70 per person, better than nothing. :)
Air tickets was about Rm600 per person all together and ferry from Macau to Hong Kong was included in our hotel package and to break it down, it’s HKD 162 for one way.

#1 Departed at 6.30am and reached Macau about 11am. The weather was really moody throughout my entire Macau/Hong Kong trip.

We actually planned to stay a night at Zhuhai, at Victor’s place but ended up booking a room at Macau instead.

#2 We booked Sheraton at Taipa for HKD 1700+ (RM750+) which includes two one way ferry ticket to Hong Kong and two buffet breakfast.

#3 Sheraton Hotel is the most affordable among the higher end hotels and since we wanted to stay around Taipa, there’s really not much hotel to choose from. Normal hotels will be charge at around RM400+ and to pay a little bit more for a far better hotel is totally worth it.

#4 Then there’s the pool.

After dealing with our luggages at hotel, we took a free shuttle bus to ‘Kuan Zap’ or known as the Macau border to cross over to Zhuhai.

One thing great about Macau is that they have free shuttle bus everywhere and if you’re not in a hurry, it is the best way of transportation if saving money is also your priority.
It took us about less than half an hour to cross the border and we met up Victor at Zhuhai Underground shopping mall which is right outside the border.

#5 Had our lunch at a random restaurant before our shopping begins.

I only ended up buying a trolley bag! :(
But oklah my trolley bag cost me about RM90 only, hehe.

#6 After all the borders crossing, checking in our room, we headed to Senado Square and along the way we entered this famous milk restaurant, Yishun milk company.

#7 Not quite use to the way their restaurant/cafe looks.

#8 Ordered Macau pork bun which I cant seem to enjoy due to my braces, the bread was too hard for me.

#9 ‘Ginger sauce bang milk’, direct translate HAHAHA. Fatty loves it but I find it weird.

So my mom finds it weird too and I thought, ‘aiyah she lousy don’t know how to enjoy’ but I guess it runs in the genes. Lol.

#10 Don’t know what they call this in English but this is ‘dan tan’ (MOP12) which is like our steam egg (jing sui dan) but instead of salty this tastes sweet. Damn weird for me also lah cause all my life I’ve been eating salty steam egg then suddenly you give me a bowl of ‘sweet steam egg’. -_-‘

#11 St. Dominic’s church.

Don’t know why my pictures so blur one lah! Don’t know it’s my camera, the editing app or my Iphone lah or 3 all together pfft!

I just realised that my camera don’t really have this anti-shake like my old Sony so it tends to be blur because my hands will shake! MEH!
Aiya also because of the editing app cause my apek Iphone prolly cannot save higher resolution pictures lah so now I cant wait for Apple to come out their newest Iphone already. Wait till my neck also long!

#12 Just look at the sky! T_T

#13 Ruins of St. Paul.

#14 We didn’t walk all the way up because time was running out. Also because I know there’s always a next time so never mind.

#15 The boys.

We were rushing because we needed to get back to Taipa by 7.30pm for House of Dancing Water show.

#16 Just the two of us because Victor watched it.

The cheapest ticket available is HKD580 (RM250)!
I read from Trip Advisor that it’s a must watch so I checked the price and after looking at the ridiculous price, I wasn’t planning to watch it.
But then Fatty’s father told us it’s a must watch, so oklor we watch lor.
RM250 is a-freaking-lot.

#17 House of Dancing Water was pretty impressive, they have a lot of machines and stuff coming out from below the ground but I didn’t quite understand the story line though. Should have read it beforehand.

#18 Then they have giraffe.




#22 This is the part where I like most.

#23 The performers were hanging and swining, they looked like they’re having lots of fun.

#24 This is the part Fatty loves the most, the bike flew so fast I couldn’t get to snap it in time. I enjoyed this a lot too, really exciting to watch.

If you have RM250 to spare, do watch because we really don’t get this type of quality show here in Malaysia.

#25 Macau at night.

After watching the show, Victor joined us and we went over to Ruo da Cunha, Taipa for supper.

#26 We went to Casa de Pasto de Seng Cheong restaurant for crab porridge, we ordered the small portion for MOP130. The porridge was quite addictive but the remaining two dishes were nothing to shout about.

#27 Fried frog.

#28 Lala.

I wish I could go to Ruo da Cunha during day time because there’s a lot of food around and a lot of things to see.
Next time, next time.

#29 Thank God I get to try Gelatina Mok Yi Kei just right before their closing time.

#30 One of their best seller, durian ice-cream. Right balance of sweetness and the durian flavour was really intense.

#31 Fatty’s serradura which is some kind of Portugese pudding which tasted really good too. Something I’ve never tried before.

#32 Them boys enjoying their dessert.

Before I went to Hong Kong, my friend warned me that Hongkies are rude people and that they will scold you or shoo you off base on her experience.
But from what I encountered was that Macanese are a lot scarrier. Not all, just a few but they’re just weird in their own way.
Hongkies treated me just fine.

Quick Post : Macau & Hong Kong

Here’re some pictures from Macau and Hong Kong while I (slowly) take my time to sort out the rest.

#1 While walking towards Ruins of St. Paul at Macau.

#2 I love the area around Senado Square, the buildings, the stairs, and the way their streets look.

#3 Ah peks and their birdies.

#4 Looking down from our hotel’s roof top at Sheung Wan, Hong Kong.

#5 Hollywood road.

#6 Saw quite a few ah sum and ah po pulling cardboard around.

#7 Vintage store at Soho, selling branded pre-loved stuff.

#8 Mini abalones drying up by the street.

#9 Hong Kong’s snack outside Langham and definitely not one of the best pfft.

#10 Fatty’s wet brogue (due to the rain) and my Minnie mouse stocking.

Oklah I try to at least finish up my Macau post by this weekend.
