Third day

The last day of our 3-day vacation in HK was dedicated for shopping! And a quick tour at the Avenue of Stars before heading back to the airport. Too bad we weren’t able to visit the Avenue of Stars at night. It has the awesome view of the city lights.

I’m very glad my travel buddies enjoyed our stint in HK. I did too!

My happiest place in the happiest place

Winnie the Pooh!

Hello Pooh!

Need I say more? Yes, I have an undying love for Winnie The Pooh since I was a kid.

Every stuff I have, it should be Pooh.

I guess it’s because of Pooh’s very hug-gable features.

Magical Place

Gavin @ Disneyland

Gavin has achieved his dream. And may I say he dislikes his haircut here.

The whole place brought me back to my childhood. It is, indeed, one of the happiest place on earth.

The Golden Mickey

More than anything, I enjoyed the shows because it does not consume much energy from me – one thing I was not able to bring to this trip.

The night lights in Disneyland.

I was in all smiles while watching this musical fireworks show.

Life is beautiful in this place.

And all you could do is just smile.

Wanderlust

My love for Macau

I indeed have a crave for travels.

I live by this quote:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark TwainMacau

What I love about Macau is the unison of different cultures.

I will definitely go back. I only had 4 hours to wander around. It’s too sort and definitely not enough.

See you again soon.

Travelogue: The Introduction

Last March, I had a short vacation in Macau and HK with mom and Gavin. It would just be a usual vacation if not for this catch: Mom and I have the worst sense of direction. We’re going to a foreign country with a kid.

It wasn’t supposed to be just mom and I. The travel didn’t match with my sisters and Pops’ schedule. The flight was already booked so Mom and I decided to pushed through because of Gavin. He’s in the age where he’s asking why his nephew has been to Disneyland and he hasn’t.

My second sister, who travels a lot, made a customized map for me. It was a map for dummies which is perfect for me. Everything was detailed.

After three days, we have survived without getting lost in two countries. I have made myself proud. Kudos to me! And thanks so much to my sister.

But there are two fail things.

(1) When we were in Macau, our last stop was the Ruins of St Paul Cathedral. I thought we have reached it when I saw this:

Ruins of St Paul Cathedral

It was at night. I thought this is only a facade. My reaction was: Why did they paint it?

I showed the photo to my sisters then they started laughing. Fail. But at least I have another reason to go back. Right?

(2) I don’t have any good photos. I’m getting weak lately. Because I’m always tired and I don’t get enough sleep. My body is not strong enough for my lifestyle now. So that. I’m always tired and out of breathe. The whole trip, of course, includes walking… lots of walking. I wasn’t prepared for it.

My sisters told me that the photos I took looks like it was just taken using a point and shoot camera by a normal photography-illiterate person. That hurts. But it’s okay. I agree!

So there, I will do better soon.

(:
