From Macau to Hong Kong!

So~ After we left Venice (the fake one) we headed over for dinner at Macau. The dinner place was located near the airport and I do wonder why and then when we reached, I saw the sign saying it's a hotel o.O??? We actually went to a hotel near the airport to have dinner? LoL???

See the sign? No lies~ But hey this restaurant served AWESOME FOOD!!!!!! Ok at least they're like TEN TIMES BETTER than China's food. No food pic cos it was too nice that I gulped them all before remembering I need to take photos =.= Hmm...Probably we're more used to Canto food. Heeee~

And again the awesome Christmas decor~ Whylahhhhhhh Kuching's Christmas decor suck like shit compared to theirs???

See how amazingly and greatly and creatively they use up all the lights to beautify the decor? Learn from it people! We need better and much MUCH better decors here!!!

After the finally-good dinner, we rushed to catch the last ferry and off we went to Hong Kong!!!!!

The effing dizzyshit ferry that made me nearly vomited =.= F-the-ferry-L!!!!!!! I will never ever EVER take that ferry again!!!

Down from ferry, checked from immigration centre and we went straight to the hotel and crashed right away. LOL

The beautiful yet grand hotel! Damn just look at how big the room is! And the view is damn awesome (shit I should have taken a photo!!! cursed-self-cursed!)

And that's my bro requesting for a poser pic =.=

Tomorrow is the last day of February 2011. How time really fly~ Can I stop the clock please? Or wait! Maybe I should not stop it cos I'm looking forward to finish my course and then to fulfill my new dream =)

Welcome to Venice!

Let me bring you back to Venice!!! =D Yes yes I WENT TO VENICE!!! Which is located at Macau. Hahaha! The fawesome casino with amazing indoor Venetian city!!! =D

Hello Macau!

After we bid goodbye to China, we went off to the immigration center and cross over to Macau. At Macau, we were greeted by another tour guide. But we didn't stay at Macau for long. Just a half day trip. First we went to tour around and tour guide kept telling us stories about all the casinos and food and people and life in Macau. But all I tasted was bitterness. My heart was left at China......... =(

Ok before I drown you all with my sadness, let's just continue to my short post.

This is the first place we went at Macau. It's a shop that sells all sorts of tit bits and cookies and candies. Sadly tour guide did not bring us to buy the famous Portugese tart.

Mom bought some stuff and then we left.

A never-to-be-missed tourist spot! The St Paul Church!!! It was Christmas eve and therefore the mountains of human heads. It's so hard to get a nice spot for group photo so we snap as much as possible and this was the only one presentable. We were given only 20 minutes there so can't go down the stairs also. Seriously never ever go to St Paul Church during occasions. It's just jam packed!!!

I'll blog about my trip to Venice next weekend~ Chao!

Goodbye China, I'll be back!

Since I'm waiting for my video to be uploaded, might as well make a quick post. 

The last day I spent at China on my vacation was at Zhuhai. A town famous for its pearls. There's a legend behind this little town. Lazy to story about it cos I've got no photo of the landmark.

This is the bus that had been taking us for the whole 5 days. Sifu Sun was our driver and he's a very friendly man. One who doesn't talk much but helps alot.

A photo with 小朱 before we leave the hotel. Til we meet again!

The first place we went that morning after breakfast was this silk factory. They showed us how silk was made and they too sell alot of silk products. I only bought a set of chopsticks with silk cloth. Wanted to buy the panda soft toy but it's not worth it. So I didn't bring home any panda =( Anyone willing to sponsor me a panda soft toy?

Next we went to visit some Chinese physician. I hate this place! Ok I'm not gonna comment more. Leave it to you to find out why I hated this place so much.

Then we went for lunch at this exquisite looking restaurant.

And had the perfect dish!

Alright I'm running out of stories to tell. But I just wana say, China isn't as bad as I first thought before I went. Although many of the Chinese are rude and HYPER pb! I love the country, the place, the venue! I love the tourist attractions! Especially the cultural village and the zoo and the garden! They're just so awesome at these field.


Dr Sun Yat-Sen's Resident

Chinese New Year is officially over. Gotta roll back to normal work days no matter how much you hated it. But well, it's another start! So heads up peeps! Stay strong for year 2011!!! The best has yet to come!

Does anyone here knows who is the first president of China? Let me bring you back to history =D I'm a sucker in history subject in school but I think this vacation had taught me alot about China's history. I get to know who is the president, who is the patriot and who else is who. Some of you may say that this is boring but I think what's boring is just texts on books. Try going to a school where they bring you all over the historical place. I'll tell you it's fun!

I'm lazy to introduce much. If you want more info, you can always ask Google. Haha! Here is Dr Sun Yat Sen's house in Guangzhou when he was young. Man this house stood there for over 200 years!!!! He was a Chinese doctor who then known as the Founding Father of Republican China. 

You can still see his room, living room, kitchen and also a small clinic where he used to keep all the medicines. It's great how the Chinese maintained the house so well.

Photos are not allowed at many sections though. And we didn't get to enter the house. Just walking around it. Probably it's too old already. He built this house with a little western concept. The 'open window' concept as said by tour guide.

Here's a little story about Dr Sun Yat Sen. But you might prefer googling for it instead.

Next to his old residence, the Chinese then build a memorial hall. All of his history and family backgrounds are stated inside.

After we left Guangzhou, we headed over to the last town in China. A small little place called Zhuhai. It was the last night at China and the feeling wasn't that nice cos I'm gonna miss the place though there's some black dots around but there's just a reason for me to miss that place =)

We came to Art Restaurant in Zhuhai for dinner. This restaurant is very very VERY beautiful!!!!! There's always a reason behind every name aye?

AND THEN I FOUND A HUSKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which refused to look at my camera. It's huge!!! I didn't dare to go any closer because the owner said it's not so friendly towards strangers =/

After dinner, of course, was to head to another hotel at Zhuhai for the night off.

Quite a beautiful hotel but this hotel suck. There is wireless internet but you gotta pay for it. And all the other toiletries like toothbrush, toothpaste,shaver are not free! But it's not those that frust me. It's the internet thing! I want to online! The one and only thing that I NEED to have when I'm travelling is internet connection and yet I do not get them at this hotel. Urgh!

Ok forget about the frust. I still prefer Shenzhen's hotel =) Hotel Bonanza!!! The best of all hotels!

Bee Farm & Bao Mo Garden

Ok no matter how no mood I am to blog, I MUST BLOG TONIGHT! At least make one post. Else my blog will go RIP for one whole week again. 

So, yesterday was Valentine's Day. How did you celebrate yours? Receive roses and chocolates? Or some exquisite dinner at special hotel restaurant? I didn't celebrate mine this year. Not that I'm alone or what. But I had to 'date' my lecturer for 3 hours straight after work. And you will say 'Go after class lah!'. You try to work whole day and class for 3 hours. See you fall to bed or not.

Now, continue my vacation post. I know it's long and dreadful but HEY I still have tones of photos to post and there's a video which I still fail to upload into YouTube all thanks to Streamyx or should I say Slowmyx.

On the I-forgot-which-day-of-the-trip and I'm lazy to count back, we went to a bee farm after breakfast. It's located rather far away from city center. Well it's a farm. So what can you expect. It's not like someone can build a farm next to the skycrapper or the playground. 

The entrance of the bee farm. The farm is call 'Feng Xian Zhi'. And this is the only photo I posted. Cos the rest all are just bees. Never see bees kah you? Ish! =D

Next we moved onto lunch and then went to an awesome museum!

This place is called Bao Mo Garden. It's really huge and awesome like the Shenzhen Cultural Village and the Guangzhou Zoo. China is really huge and everything they have are like 10 times bigger wider larger than ours!

LOOK AT THEIR TOILETS!!!!!! Will you even believe that this is actually a toilet??? I almost bring back the walls and ceilings!

The specialty of this museum is their wax statue. But this one they kept it nicely behind glass wall. Can see cannot touch!

Why is it call a garden? Because there's a huge garden behind the indoor museum!!!

A walk to remember~

Nice or not? There's even lakes of fishes inside. Looks like our Friendship Park here.

And there's not only garden, THEY HAVE A ROSE GARDEN!!!!!! I fell in love with this place when I saw those colorful bed of roses~

Mom sniffling a white rose and she requested for this photo cos Rose is her Catholic name. Heeeeee~

Still got roundabout inside! wOOt!!! Oh that painting behind me, here's the story:

Try spot a half horse body and out of the thousands mini humans being drawn onto the painting, there's only one lady. =D They (I mean Chinese) actually HAND-PAINTED that whole painting! Just compare me and that painting and you will know how big is it.

Ok enough crap. Next post coming in on Saturday. Have a great weekday ahead~ It feels like Sunday today =.=

Guangzhou Pearl River Night Cruise

Alright! Back to business! Err I mean blog. =D I've been so busy lately. The work + school week started right after 4th day of CNY *yawn* And to be even more happy (maybe I should cos can eat chicken rice everyday) I'm gonna have class every single night from Monday to Friday for the whole February. Oh love my life or not?

And now that the roads are getting dug, traffics became more and more 'smooth'. I'm searching for alternative roads to get me from office to school. Argh!

Ok continue from previous post. I was at Guangzhou just 2 months ago! And I wana go back see panda again!!!!

So after we left the zoo and the uberly cute panda, tour guide brought us to shop around the streets of Guangzhou where I FINALLY FOUND MY BOOTS!!! I've been searching all over Shenzhen and Dongguan until I got so frustrated. Haha! I know I'm fussy. Hehehe =D

This is the main shopping street if you wana shop at Guangzhou. It's call Shangxiajiu street. One thing about this place is gotta take good care of your husband or bf or son. Cos they might get 'snatch away' by 'girls'. Haha! =P~

After the satisfied shopping, we went for dinner. No photos of food here cos it's not nice. LOL

Then after dinner we headed over to the awesome and history made (I think) night cruise! It's really rEAlly REALLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!! We gotta pay for this cruise trip but man it's just so sO SO WORTH IT!!! And tour guide said it's just for temporary. The government will close it down after don't know how long. Why close down worhh~~~ It's so nice =(

This is the cruise we're taking. Looks more like a ferry with windows. Can choose to sit inside or......

Get up to the deck and enjoy the scenery!!! Gotta brighten this photo cacatedly due to my AA batt all died. *(&*%&$%$&%*&*(&(^&^% And therefore this photo looks cacated. But don't focus on our face please. Focus on the lights on the buildings behind us!

THIS BRIDGE LIGHTS WILL CHANGE AFTER FEW SECONDS!!!! In fact all of their bridges can do that!

And even their buildings! This is something like the Opera House at Sydney. Something to do with musical also. It's so pretty lahhhhh!!!! How can I not fall in love with this place? =) Imagine it's Valentine's Day and you bring your Valentine on this cruise and have candlelight dinner overlooking all these beautifully lit up buildings and bridges and cruise~ Romantic kan???? Ok someone PLEASE FLY ME TO GUANGZHOU NOW so that I can celebrate my Valentine there tomorrow night! Hahahaha!

Last but not least, the PERFECTESTESTESTES photo of the whole awesome trip!!! I forgot what's this building for but doesn't it look so AWESOMELY AMAZINGLY GREATLY FANTASTICALLY BEAUTIFUL??????

Ok I better go find a China bf now so that I can go on this river cruise tomorrow night. Bye!

Guangzhou Zoological Garden

It's already the 3rd day of CNY and I'm feeling tired and a lil bored. It has always been the same. But well, it's gonna be different tomorrow! I manage to organize a primary school gathering again. This time we're gonna go visit around houses instead of just dinner at a place. I hope it's gonna go smoothly =)

Since I've got some time to kill while waiting for the bosses gang to arrive, gonna make a quick post about my trip. Hehehe =D I wonder how many more post to go. This one's gonna be more interesting. 14 photos. Enough to satisfy you all?

The morning at Guangzhou, we went to the zoo. Who will wanna miss the chance of visiting pandas when you're already at China right? =D It's not only a zoo to see land animals. There's also an ocean park inside.

The main entrance of the zoo. I do wonder why they call it zoological garden. There's no garden ler. Only animals. Haha!

Dolphins!!!!! These dolphins are made of roses!!!! Creative aren't they?

Guangzhou is represented by these 5 goats. There's a story behind but I forgot about it already =/ And Guangzhou was the place for some international games right? I couldn't remember either. Bad bad bad memory!!!

Then we came to the aquarium section. Lotsa fishes to see. Not interested. Hahaha! But something caught my attention.

Try guess how old is this turtle. Hehehehe =D Kena pun tak ada prize lah hor. Sendiri go buy ice-cream cukuplah tu~ This turtle is as huge as erm.....bigger than my car tire =O

Then we watch some shark show. Nothing much. Just human going in and swim with the sharks and then feed them. White fat sharks =.=

And then I found jaws =.= I think the shark doesn't even need to chew me. Just swallow. Hahahahaha! I've got nothing for it to chew also. All bones. LOL


Next was the ocean park show.

There's seals performing. They're so smart!!!!! These seals are imported from US.

There's also whale! Yes this is a whale. A tiny ones. But I think it looks more like dugong to me =.=

And of course, dolphins!!!!! Weeeeeeeeeee~~~ I love to watch these dolphins making their super awesome jump!!!

After the show, we went to the zoo for a walk~ It was a warm day but I wasn't at my best condition so I wore jacket =(

Raccoons!!!! Cute aren't they? I love their fur colors~

Kangaroo!!!! These kangaroo are so lazy =.= Actually I think we scared them away. And only left one here for me to take photo. Haha! The rest hopped into the shelter.

And here's to panda!!!!! I looked so tired =( And that panda didn't even bother to look to my camera =( Sad wehh!!! Even pandas don't wanna hirau me =(((

Ok after a few whistle and cat-calls, the other panda finally look at me. I mean my camera. Hehehe =D Cute kan? I want to hug them so much!!!!

After a long walk, we left for lunch~

Family photo with the roses dolphins~
