Macau, China 澳门之旅 : This is Macau Hot Spots!! (Day Trip)

Macau Part 2 - Day Trip at The City of Macau 
木偶餐厅 Cozinha Pinocchio 
顺牛奶 Yee Shun Dairy Company
大聖豬扒包皇 Tea Plus
大三巴牌坊 St. Paul's Ruins
議事亭前地 Senado Square

A short walk from The Venetian (澳门威尼斯人) and we arrived at the busy area of Macau, The Senado Square and other tourist spots, non the less, we hunt for local food too!


- Gorgeous Staircase -


- Lunch at Cozinha Pinocchio 木偶餐厅 @ Taipa 氹仔-

First meal at their well known Portuguese restaurant which already exist since 300 or 400 years ago. The dishes were inspired by the Chinese cuisine to suit the local taste.


- Inside the Cozinha Pinocchio -

Most of the designs in Macau are well designed and I love the cozy restaurant there.


- Of What We Had -

Tasty Portuguese meal.

After our lunch, we hired a cab and headed to Senado Square. Just a reminder, it is a must to visit their famous bakery - 鉅記 Koi Kei Bakery. However, to make our trip easier/ lighter while having fun in Macau, it is not necessary to buy all the cookies from there, because we could find the same cookies from Hong Kong too!


- At Senado Square -

I love Macau. The unique and authentic Portuguese architecture designs which well kept until today.

Tina brought us to the original well known steam milk's 燉奶 outlet in Macau too!


- 義顺牛奶 (Yee Shun Dairy Company) -

Indulging the best steam milk in town and perhaps the whole world!!


- 姜汁双皮燉奶 -

Double Skin Ginger Steam Milk definitely the best dessert I ever had, I come across the instant Ginger Steam Milk at the supermarket, but it was not that tasty compared to the original one from Macau. I miss that taste so so much!


- Shopping Paradise @ Senado Square -

Beautiful street. :) And I took one of the best street photography here too!


- The famous Pork Bun in Macau 大三巴猪扒包 @ 大聖豬扒包皇 Tea Plus -

It is a must to try the famous pork bun in Macau. We have visited St. Paul's Pork Bun outlet, however we were too full to eat them. I tried the Portuguese egg tarts in fact. I heard comments from friends that it wasn't the best one, but at least i tried it right?? Non the less, this shop was being screened on famous Korean TV series too!


- Portuguese Egg Tarts -


- Random Shot -

Interesting shop i have come across. Their crafts is amazing.

So we ARRIVED AT ONE OF THE WORLD HERITAGE SITE!!


- 大三巴牌坊 St. Paul's Ruins -

" The Ruins of St. Paul's (Portuguese: Ruínas de São Paulo, Chinese: 大三巴牌坊; pinyin: Dàsānbā Páifāng) 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. In 2005, they were officially enlisted as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Historic Centre of Macau. " - Wikipedia

Perfect place for pre-wedding photography. :)



- 議事亭前地 Senado Square -

" The Senado Square, or Senate Square, is a paved area in the centre of the former Portuguese colony of Macau, enclosed by the buildings of the Leal Senado, the General Post Office, and St. Dominic’s Church." - Wikipedia

Very happening Senado Square during our visit, we did saw a group of elderly were having silent protesting.

So, that's the end of this entry and my Macau trip!

Till we meet again MACAU! You are such a beauty!

Be Casually Stylish with #AdidasNEO Label! #AdidasMY

 Hey! How's everyone doing on this weekend? :)

So, my last weekend was great with shopping spree made for me, #Saturdate and Chloe at #AdidasNEO.

A short description with AdidasNeo, it is a teen-inspired line features a multitude of colours, styles and designs suited for today’s fashionable youth while still maintaining the brand’s original inspiration in sports fashion.


- At Adidas Neo Store -

Definitely colourful and vibrant with all the casual design by Adidas Neo. Definitely suits for everyone who are young in heart!
And, shhh~ I love to wear colourful attires and they always thought I'm younger than my actual age! There's a TIP for you to look young! :)


- Denim (FB) -

I did have a look on some denim pieces and it was nice, especially on man! Love the man's denim series.


- Sneaker Wedges (FB) -

In fashion style now a days!

Was eying on sneaker from their fb timeline the other day and will go and have a look at their outlets when this arrived! I could be taller yet casually stylish with such footwear!

Even though it's designed for the younger generation, those who love trendy casual fashion could check out Adidas Neo designs too and the price is reasonable as well!! I browsed through their online store in a glance here, and they have a range of designs that caught my eye.
I think I gonna end here before I became long winded with the experience I had with them!

And before I end, gonna show you a photo that I took with #Gomez series!

Authentic Sabah Delicacies by Mango Garden Restaurant, Rumah Terbalik, Tamparuli

Being invited together with THP for food tasting at Mango Garden Restaurant during one Saturday.

 To refresh a bit of our memory, Mango Garden Restaurant is located at the same location as Rumah Terbalik (The first Upside Down House in SEA), so maybe a light meal after visiting Rumah Terbalik?


- The Outdoor -

Guests might opt for outdoor to have their meal.


- The Interior -

Lovely design for a family and friends gathering.

Quiet restaurant and food was wonderful if you love Malay/ local cuisine.

So here are some of the dishes that we had the other day. :) For the first time I had TUHAU! A local Kadazan delicacy, very tempting.



- Of What We Had -

Generous amount of serving to us. In fact, overall they served very nice meal and there are one or two local delicacies that I'm not really liked it. The way they prepared the brinjal was a bit unacceptable for my taste buds.


- Fried Inked Squids -


- TUHAU! -

Tuhau is a kind of marinated ginger and it acts like appetizer as well.


- Our dessert -

Banana served with dried coconut and brown sugar. Nice combination as they said, the banana might be "too young" to be eaten as it was a bit hard, but with the combination of brown sugar, it blends well.


- The Menu -

According to the owner of Mango Garden Restaurant, they are serving organic vegetables (moreover plant by them too) and even planted some of the spices as well.


- Little Garden -

So, we will be expecting to have organic vegetables when time goes by.

Definitely a good idea to beautiful and adding points to the Rumah Terbalik opened for public.


- The Entrance of Mango Garden Restaurant -

If there's friends asking me where to seek for local delicacies for a change, Mango Garden Restaurant would be the first choice! Comfortable dining in with nice food.

Sweet Tooth by Lucky Bean (幸运豆甜品坊) @ Lintas, KK!

Them : Where you wanna go at a night/ evening like this?
Me : Lucky Bean for sweet tooth?? ;P
Them : :/ Again?

 It seems like I have been visiting Lucky Bean almost once every forth week.

 

- At one corner -

I do love Lucky Bean's concept, whereby their cozy environment is designed with hand drawn (a.k.a. graffiti) at parts of the way, it's just lovely for couples or family and friends to have a good chat with cup of drink or a bowl of dessert.


- Pudding -

Winnie The Pooh's pudding.


- Desserts -

Pricing definitely reasonable/ slightly cheaper compared with franchised desserts outlets. Cozy environment that I could chat for hours with finger foods as well.


- Dessert -

A bowl of cold grass jelly dessert anyone? They so serve milky tea as well, which I normally had.

:) Finally some rain on these hot weather! You should go and have a try at Lucky Bean. Such a lovely spot to hang out at!

Hong Kong Part 13 -  尖沙咀 (Tsim Tsa Tsui), 九龙 (Kowloon)
Macau Part 1 - 澳门威尼斯人 (The Venetian)

Prepared ourselves and waited for our HK relative to arrive at Tsim Tsa Tsui MRT station on that morning!

Definitely looking forward on our day trip to Macau. :)

But FIRST! We gonna have our breakfast before going to the port!


- Breakfast at 澳门茶餐厅 (Macau Restaurant) -

Polo Bun was huge and it was a simple breakfast that I love and normally have.

And what I realised during HK trip was, Hong Kee normally have quite a special breakfast which combine pasta with soup as breakfast!


- Ticket from HK to Macau -

HK$151 ride for our ferry at 9.30am. And unfortunately, we didn't realised that the tickets the seller gave to us was return tickets on 15th March, 2012, luckily the custom let us back to HK on the 14th, although our tickets were wrong.

One hour ferry ride was on schedule and I met uncivilized China men again!! Pushing from behind and just "shoot" them loudly in the end. Don't play play with outsider. (^_^)


- Macau -

Tina (Our HK relative) brought us to ride the bus provided by The Venetian and we arrived at The Venetian for a short shopping spree and photography as well!

Dad very happy with the Macau trip, definitely loving Macau, a place inspired by Portuguese culture.

Macau, such a developed place with buildings and casinos. In fact, people normally come here for their casinos!


- Inside The Venetian -

Here are some of The Venetian pictures that I took! Do enjoy them! :)
