Macau

it's our first time to Macau together and we are here to try their famous Portuguese egg tart, almond biscuits and to walk Senado Square, Yee shun milk pudding and Macau Pork chop bun! Plus also to see the famous Macau tower!

Wah! Macau also has loads of sweet meat along their streets for sale!




The Ruins of St Paul's Cathedral. The cathedral was built in 1602 and destroyed by fire in 1835. Only the southern stone façade remains today. Very iconic here in Macau.




we'll definitely be back here again since we only had about half day's time to walk around this place. There's still many places in Macau where we haven't visited yet!

first month in SZ!

HongKong Here we come!

 A day trip out from Shenzhen to HK...so we bought some items which are easy for us to bring back to Shenzhen...things i bought like stickers and stationery from MUJI which we can't find in Shenzhen.
 And of cos now that we are in HK, we must have some Dim Sum!!! Let's Yum Cha shall we?
 We ordered the usual...Glutinous rice, rice rolls, siew mai, har gao and Century Egg porridge.
after some shopping at Lai Chi Kok, we decided to rest our feet at Starbucks and have a game of Hangman...and WJ here looks very unconvinced with his answer!!! I think I'm giving him a hard time!!! hahaha...
 evening came and we visited avenue of the stars....
i hope he quits soon!
