Macau Day trip

August 29, 2017 Macau

Taking a day trip to Macau was so easy! We took the highspeed boat from Hong Kong to Macau. You have to bring your passport with you on this journey.

It takes about 1 hour to get there. We did not have to make a reservation in advance.

Once, we arrived in Macau, it was a quick line at the Passport Control and we took the bus to take us to the city centre. 

The buses in Macau are cheap and it runs frequently. We stopped at Senado Square. From there we started our walk to find the sites in Macau.
We stopped by St. Dominic's Church. I love that this church is painted yellow. I have never seen such a colourful church before.
After the church visit, we kept walking until we reached the Ruins of St. Paul. The church burned down and the only remains are the facade and the stairway. It is the most famous and most photographed landmark in Macau!

What I Ate: Hong Kong Part I

August 25, 2017 Hong Kong

One of the first breakfasts I had in Hong Kong was dim sum of course ;) It was so close to our hotel and I was hungry so we sat down and ordered a few items on the menu. What I loved the most was the pineapple buns. It was still hot and really delicious!
One of our friends took us out to a cafe for lunch. I was starving and decided their is nothing else I wanted to eat but good old fried rice! I love my rice and it was absolutely perfect! 
My boyfriend ordered noodles and our friend ordered this giant toast that was filled with cream sauce and seafood. He loved it!
And because I had a bit of sore throat, I ordered lemon tea ;)

Hong Kong Skyline

August 19, 2017 Kowloon Public Pier, Hong Kong

I'm back to share my trip from Hong Kong and Philippines last year.

It was my first time to visit Hong Kong and my boyfriend went there a few times already so he was my guide for this trip. We landed in the morning and by night time, he took me out to see the skyline of Hong Kong. We walked from Causeway Bay to the ferry terminal to take us to the Kowloon side. I can't forget the humidity in Hong Kong but the breeze was nice once we boarded the boat. Watching the skyscrapers illuminated with different colours was breathtaking!
Once we got to the Kowloon side, it was picture taking time.

I was really laid back on this trip and didn't cram a million things to do. This was just a few touristy things we did in HK, the rest of the time we spent wandering around with our friends or eating. It was perfect for me!

I didn't expect to love Hong Kong but I was completely charmed. The food alone is a reason for me to keep coming back there.

Life Update 4.0

August 17, 2017 Toronto, ON, Canada

Hello! hello! It's been a while of not updating my site. I've been really busy and time just got away from me before I went on vacation. 

I'm back from my trip from Greece and Cyprus. It was really fun but ohh sooo hot. I was melting while walking around. I got a tan from it without even trying. I can't complain because the weather in Toronto is so unpredictable and we get rain a couple of times a week.

This summer is going by too quickly. I can't believe it's mid-August already. I went to 2 weddings already. Had my friend Keiko visit me again in Toronto in July. And had a couple of barbecues with friends and family.

I hope to update more here and keep sharing. I have a back log of photos and stories from my trip to Asia last year.

I've been missing Asia lately but time will come again when I get to visit.

What have you been up to this summer? Let me know :)
