Parents Visit

My parents came up to Hong Kong to visit me 🙂
Since it was also the Japanese golden week (no we are not Japanese)

so we went to Macau for a day

We witnessed wedding shots

according to the guide, this is the house of the first/ second wife of Stanley ho

Love how some of the shop houses has its character

Ruins of St Paul


I decided to go and hunt for the Ice-shop where most of the tvb drama serials usually filmed when they went to Macau, and also as reccomended .. So i  found…

Ice shop

I tried the ice – I think i am not used to the taste and all .. I just threw it away .. It was not creamy enough for my liking..  hahaha .. I think its quite an acquired taste

triple flavoured ice

couldn’t wait to return to Hong Kong for my meal ..

Visit to the Venetian - New Casino


Next time i promise this is where I will go  … lol


First Macau Day Trip

Hello Macau!! Golden Lotus

So being the noobish .. I managed to bargain down with this trishaw old man to take me around Macau – well namely to Senardo Square as well as a tour around the casinos – Boy I was amazed He was able to cycle me as well as the way that He cycles on the main roads and roundabouts, its pretty admirable and if I were the car, it would be so hard to stay clear of him .. so anyway back to the sightseeing..

Marina Bay Sands - Macau branch

The grand Lisa Boa

Church behind Senado square

Literal Mobile libaray - What a super ingenius idea! Save on rent!

So, being the normal noob and of course greedy, I began the search for the famous Macau Pork Chop bun! I got lost around the small lanes and was pacing up and down in search for a famous one or one with long queues .. then i chanced upon …

Accordingly the infamous largest french loaf in Macau that created history

so i ended up

disappointed 😦 the pork chop was dry and boney and hard .. the bun so was so hard to bite through! I think it might have been like over toasted .. Its a miss! I wont return for it  ..

I also bought portugese eggtart back for some friends and colleagues to thank them for bringing me out for dinner ( but I personally am a bigger fan of the hong kong style egg tart)

So the day ended going back to Hong Kong in disappointment 😦

I bought the more expensive ticket back to Hong Kong because i got boat sick on the economy seat .. and it comes with a meal .. but also -_- mehsss

set meal - behhh
