Macau: Ruins of St. Paul's (大三巴牌坊) Senado Square and Monte Forte


Watching “武则天” while writing this actually doubled up the time I usually spend to come up with a blog post. Macau was lovely and I would love to share some of the places we visited on the next day of our arrival.

Macau: London Hotel and Shanghai Gold Dumplings


Macau Day 1: London Hotel and 上海金牌小龙
Our Macau trip was a free-and-easy one. There wasn't much planning involved prior landing our feet on this quaint and beautiful piece of historical land. Most friends suggested no planning is necessary as it's very convenient to get around the city by taking shuttle buses. Bus fares are cheap for frequent bus lines. 

We took ferry from Hong Kong to Macau at the Hong Kong–Macau Ferry Terminal. From there, we hopped on a bus (make sure you have the right amount of change to pay the bus fare) to reach our accommodation for the following few nights. We walked quite a fair bit not knowing there is actually a bus-stop right in front of Ole London Hotel (澳莱英京酒店).

山顶 The Peak Hong Kong


Hooray!!! We've finally came to the most anticipated day of the week again!

Happy FLYYYYYYYYYYDAY, peeps! It feels oh so awesome to eventually get to write up a blog post in the most peaceful and relaxing evening.

The main difference between our previous and most recent trip to The Peak 山顶 is that we took a double-decker bus instead of a tram this time. Different experience and more cost-saving of course! Mum and everyone were freaking out throughout the entire ride up the hill, so steep and windy we thought our bus might not survive one of the sharp corners. But we did survive somehow =p

Aberdeen Harbour (香港仔) Hong Kong


Dear all who are still following and reading my blog, thanks very very much for your continual support. Thank you for sticking around with me despite the fact that I rarely update my blog as frequent anymore. For those newcomers, I'm offering you my biggest and warmest bear hug. Welcome to my life, literally =)

I seem to be having wanderlust again lately, to someplace cold and relaxing I wish. Hong Kong was chilly in the month of November but I wouldn't say it was a relaxing trip, considering the fair amount of walking involved to travel around this well-developed, fast paced country. We intended to visit "南丫島" Lamma Island at first, however, due to time constraints and lack of preparation, we chose to came to "香港仔" Aberdeen Harbour instead.

Ngong Ping Village: Po Lin Monastery & Tian Tan Buddha


Here I am, sitting in front of my lappie, blogging about my HK trip on Valentine's Eve with Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" forever looping in the background. Can't complain much as Mr. Choo will be on his way flying back to this Bolehland tomorrow.

We revisited Ngong Ping Village this trip in favor of mum and the rest of our family. We somehow managed to explore Po Lin Monastery (宝莲禅寺) which initially known as "The Big Hut" (大茅蓬) and climbed 268 stairs to the Tian Tan Buddha Statue (天坛大佛). The consequence is, I overstretched my leg muscles for climbing too fast and ended up walking like a granny for the following days. You deserved it well, Christina! 真活该=(
