More on Macau

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Helloooo everyone~!
Im having a quiet evening in writing and watching my favourite TVB show!
Ooooh ... happiness is spending some me-time alone without any distraction.
:)

Back to Macau, shall we?

But first, on a personal note - Thank you dear all very, very much with the kind comments on my pre-wedding photoshoot.
And I was initially alittle apprehensive of Malacca at first, but Im truly an old soul and I really loved the vintage feel of the town. I still love how retro everything was, and how a blast from the past those personal pictures looked.
So hopefully the professional ones will turn out fabulous! I do have faith in George! :D


Macau Day 2

We woke up bright and early for breakfast before we go sight-seeing!



Jungle Daddy Mummy.



Taking a taxi to Macau Cable Car!







Going up, up, up and away!









Walking up to Guia Fortress.

The Guia Fortress is a historical military fort, chapel, and lighthouse complex in the St. Lazarus Parish. The fort and chapel were constructed between 1622 and 1638, after an unsuccessful attempt by the Netherlands to capture Macau from Portugal.
The lighthouse was constructed between 1864 and 1865, the first western style lighthouse in east Asia or on the China coast. The complex was built upon the highest point on Macau, Guia Hill, and named after the same location. Today, the site is a tourist destination.












There was alot of walking!







But it was a lovely day.





Walking up to the Chapel.







After we came down...



We went to Macau's most popular icon.. !!!
Can u recognise this?



Ruins of St Paul.

The Ruins of St. Paul's refers to the ruins of a 16th century complex in Macau including of what was originally St. Paul's College and the Cathedral of St. Paul also known as "Mater Dei", a 17th century Portuguese cathedral dedicated to Saint Paul the Apostle.
Today, the ruins are one of Macau's most famous landmarks.






Sunshine.



Going into the museum.











From the top.





Every tourist will come here to take a pic or two!!
It was soooo crowded.







But seriously, how amazing is this.



Going to the walking street.



It was a HOT day!!! And I was dying for my fix of bubble tea!







But we had a mission.



Wong Chi Kei has the best handmade noodles in Macau!
Look at the looooong queue!



But the system is really cute here - due to the large number of customers, Wong Chi Kei gives out pieces of paper with numbers on them. And u wait for ur number to be called out before being led to a table.
Its hugely similar to our local Ding Tai Feng system : But there is no automated signboard or walkie-talkies used here , just good ol' hollering from the waitresses.
:)



I ish hungry now.









Wong Chi Kei
No.17 Largo do Senado, Macau


Walking around Senado Square.

Had to go Hotel Lisboa!!



Old and New.





Together.

Casino Lisboa is one of the most famous hotel casinos in Macau.
The casino is owned by the Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau (STDM), a Stanley Ho company. The original casino and the 12-storey round hotel tower were built in 1970 by Stanley Ho, Teddy Yip, Yip Hon and Henry Fok. A 270-room extension was added in 1991 for a total of 927 rooms. As of 2006, yet another extension, the Grand Lisboa, is being built next to the current complex.




Going back to the hotel.



Took a shower (coz it was burning!) and off to the lounge for a quick drink before we go for sight-seeing round 2.



Snacks and more.







Off to The Venetian!



Am I in Macau??









This is the foodcourt! So nice!



Shops.





U cant tell if its night or day.





Dinnertime in Taipa Village!



Their crab was really YUMMY.. !!!





Decided to go Hard Rock Hotel to take a look!





Rock Shop!



And then.. a supper ritual..



Last Day in Macau!

Lobby.



Pretend only.
I dunno how to play piano de! LOL!



We are going, going, going Macau Tower!



Macau Tower Convention & Entertainment Centre, also known as Macau Tower, - is a tower located in the former Portuguese colony of Macau. The tower measures 338 m (1,109 ft) in height from ground level to the highest point. An observation deck with panoramic views, restaurants, theaters, shopping malls and the Skywalk X, a thrilling walking tour around the outer rim.
It offers the best view of Macau and in recent years has been used for a variety of adventurous activities.






Nobody told me there was Hello Kitty everywhere in Macau Tower!



From the top.





Haha!





I think people bungee-jump here.. but I dun dare!
Ha!



Going back to Venetian for a quick lunch before we pack up and leave Macau!



Gondola ride!



Pork Chop Bun!
Soooo sinful but delicious!



Hello Macau Harbour! (again)



We took the ferry to HongKong Airport directly this time coz we are not staying over in HongKong but flying back to Singapore straight.



And then, something so familiar.

Hahahha but Im sure the material is good though.. :) So I guess u pay for wat u get sometimes. Hehehe.
And hmmm.. Im not sure wat powder Joie uses leh! Ok one day I ask her n tell u k! :D
I rem she used a 2-way cake kind of powder, very lasting but abit too thick for normal daily wear? Becoz its a photoshoot so I guess she needed to use something with more coverage.
But her skills r really good! I loved the makeup. :D

kat: Thank u kat. From the bottom of my heart.
It is a small world after all. :)

curious: Haha! U r very cute!!! But no, jungle boy is just plain jungle boy to me. :D

curious: Thats not true!!! I have been through difficult periods in my life! But I tend to be abit bimbotic la, dun think so much, take it easy and nothing is more impt than life itself.
