A Trip to China - Part 7

The seventh day, 29th August, 2008, Friday.

As stated in our tour schedule list, we had "Dim Sum" (点心) as our breakfast. Yup, Hong Kong's Dim Sum is always delicious. After that, we went to a few places that selling gold, silver, candies, and etc.

Next, we had our lunch at 12pm something, and went to the harbour at 1pm something. At 2.30pm, the ship departed from Hong Kong to Macau, which takes 1 hour. Well, the ship or ferry just like sitting in a aeroplane. You have your own seat number and very comfortable as well... =D

Inside of the ship or ferry

Hmmm... Well, I spent that 1 hour just to sleep since we all were so tired and not enough sleep. At 3.30pm, we had arrived to Macau. Next, we had the city tour in Macau.

Here are the photos that I took when visiting the places... =D

The entrance of A-Ma Temple

Sands Casino (金沙)

Too bad I can't take a better photo of this. We walked around in the Sands Casino there about half an hour, and continue to the next destination, which is very near to Sands Casino.

The Golden Lotus Square (盛世莲花广场)
(I don't know the real English name of this place)

The Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral

Closer view of The Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral

Another view of The Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral

Opposite of The Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral

Next, we walked along the street that is opposite to The Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral, to have our dinner since it was around 6pm already. After dinner, we went to our bus, and here I took some photos on my way to the bus... =D

A view the post office from the place where we had our dinner

Pos Office

After the bus, we had arrived to our hotel called Best Western. Hmmm.... This hotel is good. The room and toilet look comfortable as well... =D

So after check in, we rest for a while and continue again to another casino. First we went to a very high class hotel to see the Lucky Tree at 9pm.

(I don't know what is the name of the hotel)

Opposite of the hotel
It's beautiful, isn't it?

After that, we went to the second hotel, and went into their casino. Again, I don't know the name of the hotel... =.=ll

We went from the first hotel to the second hotel by walk. And I took some photos of beautiful buildings here, but I only post up 1 photo here since most of the photos are blur. =.=ll

A beautiful buidling again

Ok, the third place was The Venetian Macau Resort Hotel. Two words for me to describe the hotel, huge and beautiful. Well, they have a very big casino, a place for you to shopping, and a place for you to eat... =D

Anyway, I took some photos there... Enjoy... XD

The street in the Ventian Macau Resort Hotel

A small clock tower
(It's not a clock tower actually... =.=ll)

Food court

I think it's another food court if I'm not wrong.

After walking around, we felt hungry and had our supper there. My sister and I ordered 2 bowls of ramen, which cost HK$ 20++ each, from a Japanese stall... =D

Seafood Ramen

Beef Ramen

My both sisters shared the Seafood Ramen, and my brother and I shared the Beef Ramen. It's delicious... =D

After supper at 11.40pm, we went into the casino. At 12am something, we went out from the casino and back to our hotel by taxi. Before we went back, we saw something beautiful there...

One of the exist to east entrance

The golden ball
(Not sure the real name of this)

Closer view of the golden ball

Ok, after back to our hotel, we took our shower and slept at 1am something again...
So, that's it for the seventh day.


The eighth day, 30th August, 2008, Saturday.

Nothing much for the eighth day. We wake up at 7am, and had our buffet style breakfast in the hotel at 7.45am. At 8.30am, the bus brought us to Macau airport since our flight to Kuching was at 10.35am. At 10.35am, it's time to say good bye to Macau.

Say good bye to Macau in the flight

So, the trip to Kuching takes 4 hours again, and we arrived to Kuching at 2.20pm. Within that 4 hours, all of us had became a dead fish, and most of us slept the whole 4 hours.

Ok, that's the end of my trip to China.
Anyway, I'm looking forward another trip next time.
Thank you for reading... =D

A Trip to China - Part 6

The sixth day, 28 August, 2008, Thursday.

We wake up at 7am something, and went to had our breakfast at 8.30am, together with my cousin. Around 9am, we went back to our hotel and meet the other group members. After that, we went to Ocean Park.

We arrived to Ocean Park around 10am something.

The entrance of Ocean Park

The very first thing that we did in Ocean Park was the see the real Panda.
Oh my cat... They are cute... >.>ll

And after that, we continue to another part of Ocean Park by cable car. Before we arrive to the cable car station, I took some photos here... =D

The Pandas: Look, someone is taking photo of us!

Kung Fu Panda

When we were in the cable car to another part of Ocean Park, I took some photos here. But too bad, most of them are ugly. So, I only post up 1 here... =.=llxx

The view from the cable car

Next, we went to 2 aquariums. The first aquarium we visited was nothing much. In the second aquarium, there are a lot of fish inside, and it has 3 floors. And here are the photos... =D

The first floor

The second floor

Too bad, I didn't take the third floor there. Haha...
Around 12pm, we played the roller coaster, sea rover, and "jump off from building" (跳楼, Tiao Lou). Er... I would say the roller coaster has nothing much to us, and so the sea rover. But the Tiao Lou is fun... XD

We only took about 1 hour to finish them all. After that, we went to shopping, see any souvenir to buy or not. Next, we watched the Dolphin show at 2pm.

Haha... The dolphins are cute... =D
But my phone camera didn't manage to take a better photo in the show since my seat was far away from the stage... =.=ll
Ok, the view from the seat at the Dolphin show.

The view from the seat of Dolphin show

The show takes half an hour if I'm not wrong. So we went to the back door of the Ocean Park and hanging around the shop there at the back door. At 3.30pm, our bus had came and brought us to hotel.

Around 4pm, we arrived to our hotel. So, we decided to take a shower and rest for a while. At 6pm, my sister's Hong Kong friend brought us to have dinner. Thanks for your dinner, Vanny... =D

And after that, we went to street shopping again. Too bad, I didn't buy any clothes that is fashion enough because I don't dare to wear them in Kuching. Also, most of the beautiful clothes there are expensive, except for the discount one. So I didn't buy any clothes that is fashion enough... =.=ll

When we were street shopping, my sister's friend brought us to buy a drink. Hmmm... I forget what is the name of the drink already. But it's Mango flavour, and like pudding drink... Lol...
Anyway, it tastes good, and costs HK$20 for 1 cup and HK$30 for 2 cups, if I'm not wrong... =D

The mango flavour pudding drink

So, we back to our hotel by taxi at 12am something, and slept at 1am something... Lol...
Ok, that's it for the sixth day.
To be continue on the seventh day and the eighth day. =D

A Trip to China - Part 5

The fifth day, 27th August, 2008, Wednesday.

We wake up at 7am something and went to have our breakfast, together with one of my cousin who was working in Hong Kong for few days. At 9am something, we went back to our hotel and wait for the other to start our trip today.
The first place that we visited was Ngong Ping Village (
昂坪市集). The main purpose to Ngong Ping Village is to see the Tian Tan Buddha Statue (天坛大佛). We went there by underground. About 10am something, we arrived to Ngong Ping cable car's station. We bought the tickets, which cost HK$ 88 per person.

After that, we ride the cable car to Ngong Ping Village... =D
Well, it takes about 15 minutes to the village from the cable car station. It's far, isn't it?
Here are some photos that I took in the cable car.

We didn't go up there since the weather was extremely hot. Also, we thought that entrance fee is needed to go up there. So we decided not to go up and go back to the cable car station. But after came back to the cable car station, someone told us that it's free to Tian Tan Buddha Statue up there... =.=ll

On the way to the cable car station, we stopped at a few shops. We looked around there and bought some candies. At 1.30pm, we meet our tour guard and went back to the first cable car station.

Before we go to our next destination, we went to have our lunch ourselves nearby. My cousin brought us to Delifrance... =D

So, don't get so near when you watch the parade in Hong Kong Disneyland next time, or else you'll get wet... (I got myself wet there..) =.=ll

After that, we went to watch the 4D movie. Wow... The 4D movie is cool, and the sound effects inside were dam nice... =D

Next, we went to Jungle River Cruise. The driver of the boat was funny and always talk about lame joke. The driver always scare us... =.=ll
