oh my goodness, time really flies and in a flash here i am back home typing this miserable post-holiday withdrawal entry. awwww.
went with marilyn to Hong Kong after the exams for a few days. n managed to squeeze in an impromptu trip to macau as well, took a one day break frm our shallow eating n shopping spree in hong kong for some more cultured heritage-visiting programmes in macau.
anyway though this trip is just the 2 of us (no other foreign friends made, no delegates, no intellectual exchanges at forums etc.), it was still a really fun trip. N havin been to hong kong plenty of times, marilyn n i really pretty much went around without our maps n we just amazingly find our way to all the places we wanna go haha. N though its not a new place to explore, it was still really fun and exciting. hunting down the value buys that played hide n seek with us, the yummy dim sums that one can never get sick off, n all the lovely imported cosmetics n skincare products at really low prices!! These aside, there was also all the random episodes which is just hilarious n pretty exciting, of which one i shall elaborate later on.
second time in macau, but this time i managed to visit some other places which i missed out the first time i went. so it was st paul's, this church, st dominic (i thk), this chinese style old mansion by this wealthy merchant ( it was so fun posing with the furnitures and parts of the house as if it was our home), and the really famous Hotel Resort Venetia (where the korean drama Boys over Flowers was shot). oh man.... Venetia was sooooo awesome. i had wanted to visit since the 1st time i went to macau. So taking the gondola ride was a dream come true. marilyn n i were so excited during the ride. it was like around 40 bucks for 10 mins :S Anyway it was fun fun fun and we had a portugese dinner. too bad we missed the egg tart though.
Last night in hong kong was also uber fun. after we shopped till we drop, we made our way down to lan kwai fong. man... that place is really awesome. love it. arghhh just dont like it here man. how can holland village compare to it?! Anyway we decided to try out this Russian bistro n we found out that russian food is actually very yummy!! and there's this freeze room (-20 degrees) where ppl can really go in n chill literally n we went in after our meals n drinks to chill as well before we leave. uber fun.
anyway so here comes the funny episode
. man... random things really just love entering into my life. so at the russian bar, marilyn n i were just chilling out with our drinks after our food when this guy from the next table suddenly just walked over and started a conversation with us. Goodness. All singaporean men out there, please learn from this guy. "Hi can i be your friend" really won't work, but learn frm the pick up master. That guy was just amazing man. He could carry on with the conversation when marilyn n i just kept answering his questions and nothing else. So he asked, we answered n we dont initiate anything else. n he went on n on with his qns and close-to-monologue dialogue. but ok lah, it was quite exciting in a way n fun. spice up life. n since he's not sooo weird n random (like mr starbucks) and he look pleasant, it was quite entertaining.
and guess wat? he claimed to be the brother of this guy from this band Super Junior M, which left marilyn n I wondering if it's true, though we had like 80% doubt.
mini photo journey. loads more on facebook! :)))
