Explore the Beauty of Ipoh: MU Rooftop Bar and Gunung Lang Recreational Park

Haze is getting worse today with API (Air Pollution Index) spikes up to as high as 134. Sad to know that the reading has finally elevated from moderate to unhealthy range. Public is urged to minimize / avoid outdoor activities if possible. Most of the people around me are sick and I, myself feel uncomfortable in breathing as well. So peeps, do drink plenty of fluids and keep your mask on whenever exposed to the haze please. The last thing I want is seeing more people getting sick.

Now, my road trip to Ipoh continues...

Qing Xin Ling (清心岭) Leisure & Cultural Village Ipoh

We embarked on an unplanned trip to Ipoh just last weekend. It was a long weekend in celebration of the 58th Independence Day of our home country - Malaysia. I concerned a little bit at first as it was raining cats and dogs along the journey. The haze itself was bad enough I thought. But thankfully, miracle does happen and my prayer was answered. No more rain when we approached the old town of Ipoh. Tummies were well fed right before the walking and sweating begin.

Exploring Macau: Ou Mun Cafe and A-Ma Temple

Another month passed by, another post I write... Hey, wait a minute, it's been way beyond one month! Folks (sounding like my director *clear throat*), I promise to try my very best to come up with at least one post every fortnight as a commitment to myself, if time and my brain permit of course. Fingers crossed.

There were big and small trips in between since my visit to Macau and Hong Kong until now. I hope to conclude this one very soon so I may start writing about my next family trip to Sekinchan.

Out of the two mornings spent in Macau, Ou Mun Cafe (澳门咖啡) with a taste of portugal was the first we visited for breakfast. Click here for its Google Maps coordinates.

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 truly amazing. And right now, I'm about to show you some of the places we visited on the first day of our arrival. Such lovely weather to tour around the city.

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=(

Eco World Starlight New Year Concert (Live in Penang)
EcoWorld Starlight New Year Concert was a blast last night!!! Held at Penang International Convention and Exhibition Centre (SPICE) or formerly known as the Penang International Sports Arena (PISA).

You know what? It's not often you get free admission to see live performance by international celebrity like Wang Leehom 王力宏. Yes, totally, absolutely FOC!!! The event planning, stage design, lighting and everything else were a huge success. Thanks EcoWorld and all the sponsors for making it happen! There were also entertaining performance by Melody Tan 陈永馨 (The Voice China's finalist), Daniel Craven (world-class magician / illusionist) and Najwa Latif (Malaysian singer and teen idol).

Tai O Fishing Village (大澳) Hong Kong

Tai O (大澳) Hong Kong

Tai O is the oldest fishing village located on the western side of Lantau Island in Hong Kong. It was part of our schedule on day 2 to visit here before exploring Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery in Ngong Ping. Approximately 20-25 minutes bus ride back and forth between Ngong Ping and Tai O. We chose 1.30pm as our departure time.
