Japan Trip 18-19June 2013

7 Jul

Hello peeps!

I went to Japan last month, although it was only for two days, it was a great experience for me, Japan is really a nice country to visit ^_^

But too bad, I only had two daysย off , otherwise I would have go into other areas as well.


The view while I was on the train, there are lots of greenery in Japan, air is good as well.


I went to Daiso, the biggest one in Tokyo, Ken brought me there, so I have no idea where was I , but nvm, because it was really big and I really spent lotsa time just shopping in Daiso, 5 storeys OMG ๐Ÿ˜›



The crow in Japan is abit overwhelming for me, maybe perhaps I’m a country bumpkin, LOL, never seen such a big crow in my life, wahahahahahahahahaha ~


Daiso is so big, there are lifts and escalators in the whole building, which is the Daiso building.


Camwhore while I was in the lift , hehehehehe, nv changed my habits~


I know this is unglam, but nvm , it served as a memory for me hehehe


I went crazy when I saw lots of fooooooooooooooooooooooodies in Daiso, it’s just toooooooo awesome ~


Saw this machine which reminded me of my teenage years and childhood where Neoprints are just very trendy and popular~


It was just fated for me to go Delta? I don’t know, since I had to deliver stuffs to Delta DL622, which is from Singapore to Narita, little did I know it is actually the only flight from Delta out from SG~


The lift in Japan is cool, with space and wheelchair friendly facilities


Vending machines are found everywhere in Japan’s metro station, you can drink or eat in the station, despite there is aircon~( info was provide by Ken chan ) And the best thing is, the train is still much cleaner than SG, although SG’s train can’t eat or drink ๐Ÿ˜›


The ticket is small, paper like ticket but is a “smart ticket”, because the machines can open with that Hehehehehehehehe, I know I sound stupid, but one thing I agree with Luca is, Travel is the only thing you buy which makes you richer ^_^


Super confused by the map system in Japan, but nevertheless, it is not difficult if you see carefully, it comes with a Japanese Chinese characters and lucky for me, I can comprehend something out of that ๐Ÿ˜›



Ken told me this above was a typical Japanese meal combination


I had curry cutlet, although simple, but I can feel the thoughtfulness and the sincerity through Japanese food


Recycling instructions in my hostel


Guesthouse is clean, owners are friendly, lots of foreigners to interact , even met a Malay girl from Malaysia, was quite fun to travel and have different experiences


Parking is everywhere


This is the day @ 4am in Japan, was quite surprised it was so bright already~


I was walking down the whole street as though it was my Grandpa’s street, and the whole street was soooooooooo clean!~ It was really cooling in Japan although the temperature is 28 degrees celcius.


Shops are everywhere inside the train station



Pudding was so soft and smooth~ OMG


My boarding pass, I’m so happy lah~


A Japan AH Beng LOL





My Lunch in Narita









I thought this was an ATM but apparently this is not ^_^



Never thought I would have the chance to enjoy this view, but thanks to Delta, it was possible ^_^




Xiao Ka’s white lover chocolate



I bumped into Roy in airport





And the last but most exciting happenings~

To meet Ken, he happend to travel to Japan with his parents on Delta flight wahahahahahahaha~ I MISS HIM SO MUCH ^_^


That’s about it for my short trip to Japan, shall update on another new travel experience soon ^_^

Hong Kong Day 5

12 May

Hello peeps, I’m guilty of not updating my blog about my trip.. But I guess, I’ll have no chance to go for such a “long” trip in the near future, and although, I’m back for about a month..

As I’ve mentioned before, life goes on and also, there’s just something wrong with my laptop that I can’t upload my photos till today..

But yeah~ I know its lots of excuses and blah blah blah~ But nvm, here goes my day 5 in Hong Kong ๐Ÿ™‚

My day started with me going to Prince Edward MTR station to take train to Chuen Sha Wan station..

At the MTR in Hong Kong, it was real rare to find people standing on both sides of escalator, coz HK people are famous for being efficient, everything just happened in a breeze~ Perhaps this place wasn’t a CBD area which explains why people can do this ๐Ÿ™‚

This is one unique sign that I saw in Hong Kong, which also showed the cultural side of HK with street stalls anywhere..

Hehehehehe~ This logo was my first curiosity about visiting friends in Hong Kong.. I met my HK friends in ITE in 2009 and since then we kept in contact, then I went HK with school and I ran away.. sorry Ken ๐Ÿ˜› Anyway, this is Haking Wong VTC( vocational training center)

The basketball court in Haking Wong, I got SO EXCITED when I saw this~ The sight reminds me of a “standard” school bb court whenever I watch some HK TVB drama~ OMGOMG~

Hahahahahaha~ Yeeki gave me a look when I was so freaking excited and then, I’m actually visiting her, because I wana see how a school in HK look like ๐Ÿ™‚

We went to have lunch/ Brunch in the school cafe, supposed to be true lunch, but Yeeki lazy lah~ She late for school, so in the end, we walked to her school together ๐Ÿ˜›

My Menu was salted fish with steamed meat pancake and ICE MILKTEA~ It was just awesome to drink milktea in HK, its just damn damn awesome, I had mine everyday :O

Yeeki’s menu was steamed egg and veggie with rice, and… MILKTEA~ THANK YOU Yeeki for your lunch treat ๐Ÿ™‚

Btw, food is real cheap in school cafe, how I wish it’s like that in SG

The staff room reminds me of a secondary school setting in SG.. But anyways, while I was eating with Yeeki, her teacher came over and chatted with us because she saw a weird looking overexposed toastie (which was me lah, dress too little in cold weather) And this teacher came to know that I intended to study in HK and I came over to observe, so she told me SG have ITE which is similar to VTC

Later on , I followed Yeeki up to her class, had to “beg” her to allow me lah, coz she felt so “Malu”, it was 5th floor if I’m not wrong, lucky got lift, if not , I so fat with an injured leg confirm cannot tahan de lor~

I promised Yeeki that I will just follow her to see how her class look like then I will leave.. But her classmates are so nice, they invited me into the class~! LOL~ I can’t believe my luck lah~

So I came in , and I saw the lecturer, and then .. I was thinking.. If I should try my luck… so I went on, I opened my big fat mouth and asked for permission to stay in for a class, no loss if I was rejected ๐Ÿ˜›
And I got my wish fulfilled ๐Ÿ˜€

Some shots of the class:

At the end of class, I took pictures with the very nice lecturer~ LOL~ At first he was asking me which school am I from? Then I replied that I’m from Singapore~ I’m YEEKI’s FRIEND~ hahahahahha~! He was saying that if I sit in, Yeeki’s attendance will be given to me.. hahahahhahahahahaa!

Nevertheless, thank you teacher for letting me to sit in ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you Yeeki for all the “Paisehsssssssssss”, maybe I embarrassed you, but you’ve not dumped me ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m really glad I managed to re-contact you after you went back to HK, and I’m really happy to see u again~!
We parted after the class because Yeeki had to go for another lecture by a “fierce” lady lecturer, I don’t wana try my luck with a lady LOL

My look for the day, never failed to camwhore~

I left to explore the school alone and saw some activities students do in their free time :

The retail outlet is for students to gain experiences working in the school, just like ITE’s Reel work ๐Ÿ™‚

Hong Kong’s fishes! Something that amazed me, was that, not only most people are cramped in HK, even fishes too~ These are real huge, I was literally “afraid” of them when they opened their mouth.. OMG.. and they’re all in the small “pond like fish tank”..

Just beside the school, there’s a tall tall flat

Hair services are cheap in Hong Kong due to competitiveness

After school visit, I walked to the MTR staion and on the way observed the happenings around me ๐Ÿ™‚

Seemed like basketball is a fav sports among students

Hong Kong specially has this program to help school dropouts teenagers to find jobs, train them with subsidies, an effort to maintain the society ๐Ÿ™‚

I took this photo not because of the caution message, was because of the black Chinese words, “West Kowloon police” , hahahahaha! You must be wondering why~
I was super excited because I always saw in TVB dramas that police always come from “West Kowloon outlet” LOL~ Silly Toastie~

This one looks like City Sq in SG

Just happened I saw an ambulance going off to “save a fire”, and it reminded me of “Lie Huo Xiong Xin”, hahahahahaha~ Lots of TVB dreams came true for me~

Next, I went to the doctor to get my dressing done, the wound was too disgusting, and the doctor in Queen Mary Hospital did a bad job to glue it back.. Yes, he said he used glue.. And the worst thing was, he didn’t even ask me back to follow up, the nurse told me to keep my dressing for 15 days then it will heal.. hahaha~ The 2nd day, the wound burst open le lor~ Blood seeped through my thick 5cm bandage.. I was practically limping around~

Doctor Tam Yiu Pun used this on my wound

After that I went to roam around while waiting to meet Wincy, and saw this jewellery outlet, which was shown in the TVB show~ wahahaha

Went to Temple street for dinner, at Da Pai Dang= roadside stall
This is an authentic way to eat in HK, but me, beside being excited about foodiessssssss~

I kept asking Wincy where are the Hooligans in HK? It’s supposed to be like the movies, “Gu Huo Zai”, hahahaha! It was all TV n Movies which made up HK to me ๐Ÿ˜›

On our way to find food, we walked past this authentic oldies pawn shop which is going to extinct~

Next; Foodies:

My darling~

We choose one by the roadside to get the authentic feel ๐Ÿ˜›

“Bi Feng Tang chao Xie” = Something stir fried crab

Master Wincy showing tourist Toastie how to “clean your chopsticks”

Claypot eggplant minced meat

Authentic way to wash your glass, and the tea is FREE~

Roast “pigeon” if I’m not wrong, dipped with salt n pepper, awesomeness

Stir Fried Lettuce, so sua gu, first time eating them

I was so sua gu, and I walked to this signage and stand there observing, while people gave me strange stares~

On a closer look, she look like Christina LOL

Wincy and me became crazy and chat n chat non stop, since she told me there’s not much Singaporeans around her, so we started to do crazy things while queue-ing up for famous dessert here, Harrison was so paiseh lah!

Then suddenly , I went opposite to take photo of Li Bing Bing, omg, so pretty n fair!

Out of boredom, Wincy and me acted like bitches n kampung people, talking loudly n laughing, while Harrison wanted to dig a hole and hide himself~

Finally we got into the small small small shop: TADAH~

Harrison Gor Gor!

Toastie with a LOL face ๐Ÿ˜›

Master Wincy!

Our lovely foodies~

Nata De coco Something! Awesome MAX

Heavenly Durian Sago ice cream!


Mango skin wrap something! FREAKING NICE! OMG!

We left for some drinks after dessert and saw this group of youngsters doing hiphop, HK is indeed a vibrant place~

Walked past this bridge, famous for “Da Xiao Ren”, cursing evil people with paper dolls and smacking them with wooden clogs, wahahaha! Drama fan again ~


Drinks in Lan Kwai Fong!

There’s an event and place was flooded with lotsa people..

Crazy people too~
But because of my serious injuries, and there’s lots of glass bottles rolling down the slope~

While waiting for Harrison to get us a drink, we took photos and while doing that, there’s a crazy woman came to us and started talking and dragging us to go drink with her, I thought she’s Wincy’s friend LOL
Awhile later, she went and drunk talk with other drunk people LOL

So.. We went to Tsui Wah:


Buses in HK are 24 hours operating, and while waiting for bus, I kicked my injured toe and screamed in public.. HAIZ!! So pain! FML

Thank you guys for sending me back despite the late hours, XIEXIENI!

Last photo for my long fat day:


Day 4 in Hong Kong

26 Mar

Well, till this date, I’m looking more like a HK ppl because my Cantonese is getting better ๐Ÿ™‚

My day started with Lunch with Lao Niang, we had our food in Meixin Restaurant

We had char siew rice and the charsiew in HK is awesome, its thick and fragrant

Beside the restaurant, we saw a traditional biscuit shop, which had this interesting lotus biscuit, its really to eat biscuits in Hong Kong

The private clinics in Hong Kong is very different from SG, most of them are situated in a building, I have to take lift up to search. Because my wound was bleeding profusely till it seep through the thick bandage and stained my sandals, so I had to search for a doctor to clean my wound..

We went into this tiny lift and there are some aunties talking about people saying that the lift is small, but nobody said that they are fat, and she was saying that luckily lao niang and me moved in, if not they can’t squeeze into the lift ๐Ÿ˜›

This was my look for the day

After doctor, I went to shop at Tong Choi St, there are lots of things to buy this is my favorite…

No matter how painful my wound was, curry fishball never failed to delight me ๐Ÿ™‚

I saw this interesting specs and bought it, although I felt retarded, but it was fun

An overview of the street, always filled with people

After lots of shopping, my makeup was still intact thanks to the cold weather ๐Ÿ™‚

We went to have smelly beancurd at the nearby street

When coming back, we saw this Sun Hotel which I was supposed to book it, but the hotel people hung up my call and thus, I’m back in Metropark Hotel Mongkok

I decided that I wanna explore HK, so we went on any bus and had a ride , till don’t know where ๐Ÿ˜›

While I was in the bus , this was what I love to do

We went cross the sea tunnel and don’t know go where ๐Ÿ˜›

Finally, the bus stopped at this place where they are lots of Caucasian

We walked and saw this tram in the middle of nowhere, so I just board it and roamed around

The interior of the tram looked like this

I thought this looked like “ShopNSave” and yes, indeed it is!

I want to watch these movies

Went pass this and thought it was quite crazy to walk up these stairsssssss

This sign gave me a suddenly thought of some other things in Hokkien

We stopped at North point and went into a cafe and had our dinner :

Food and drinks in HK are so awesome that….. :

I know my face very qian bian ๐Ÿ˜›

In the end , we were lost, so I used my lousy Cantonese to ask for directions and went back by MTR

This is a special sign in HK

After a long day of searching for doctors and roaming- This ended our day ๐Ÿ™‚

A day to remember-HK day 3

24 Mar

Helooosss I’m back ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my transit day from Macau to Hong Kong

My day started with breakfast in hotel with Lao Niang

We went to the ferry terminal to purchase our ferry ticket to Hong Kong, this overview of the terminal resembles the one to Batam somehow

My overall feeling of Macau is a gracious city, people are nice and friendly~

I took turbojet back to HK

But on my way back…

I got into an accident, the connector between the land and ferry moved when I was about to cross over, the metal came to my toe and rammed over~ My toe “split” at the side and the whole nail had to be removed..T_T

The staff at turbojet wasn’t helpful, the first one who saw me in this state asked me, which ferry am I from, when I was just outside their ferry!
My toe was bleeding so badly that it left a pool of blood on the floor, I was so afraid my toe would be gone..

Nv expected that the first time I sat on a wheelchair because the pain was so bad, I can’t walk..

The guy in black is a staff from Turbojet, their manager promised me that they would settle the medical fees and asked me to keep my receipts.. So I went to an ambulance and was sent to Queen Mary Hospital..

I was being told that Queen Mary Hospital was the best government hospital in Hong Kong, but when I went there, my toe was still bleeding and they made me wait for 4 hours! Nobody attended and stop my bleeding.. They left me to bleed for 4hours before the doctor came T_T

Wincy knew about my accident and came to the hospital to fetch me, in the hospital, the doctor simply used glue to glue back my toe, I was given 4 jabs at the small area to stop my pain, so that he can remove my nail.. But, in the end, the 4 jabs are so painful, yet they don’t work, and I was given panadol and left the hospital with a wrapped toe only.. It was such a shame about these treatment, where they didn’t ask me to follow up also, the bleeding nv stopped also..
Anyway, Wincy brought me to a cafe for lunch + dinner
The bun was awesome!

We had noodles soup with some beef pasta, it was damn awesome lah! Milktea too!

Thank you Wincy ๐Ÿ™‚

We walked around Mongkok, there are performances and then…

I saw this awesome ice cream! Its a must try and my favorite, this was just like two yrs ago, when I came at this date and had the same ice cream..

But this time, Harrison is here, and he bought me the ice cream ๐Ÿ˜›

I can camwhore for 3 pax

I wanted to buy eyebrow shaver before the shop closes but I was eating ice cream and can’t enter the shop, so Harrison went in and bought for me, SO SWEET ๐Ÿ™‚

A typical HK street which don’t know why, quite amazes me

They bought fried intestine for me, actually I don’t eat them de, but I was willing to give it a try, anyway since I’ve already had so much lol things happening le

Amazingly, it was damn nice!

We went to Xu Liu Shan later on to have dessert and it was nice, we three were talking craps but it was real fun ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a pity that my day was wasted in HK but at the same time, I really experienced life.. Buy travel insurance whenever you travel ๐Ÿ™‚

Macau Day 2

20 Mar

Hello guys!
Today is my 2nd day in Macau. In fact, maybe is 1st day in Macau. I actually booked the hotel in Taipa, which is another island beside the maini Macau island, but yet is considered in Macau LOL.

My day started with having breakfast with Lao Niang at the hotel ๐Ÿ˜€

This was what I ate ๐Ÿ™‚

This was the view outside my hotel and we took the bus to the Macau main island

A random view while in the bus, I find it very nice, its not like some shitty view

The interior of the bus resembles Singapore’s bus, but the difference is that, the bus is damn damn damn fast! You’ll most probably fall down if you didn’t hold on to the pole or something, but its damn nice lah! It’s like MRT, because it will have an announcement on which bus stop has it arrived to.

Some Camwhoring photos:

We went to a biscuit shop which sells Bah Kua as well, in Macau, there are lots of such shops around, which made me wonder if their Bah Kua is really that good?
And yes~ I bought it and it really TASTE GOOD ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m not a fan of almond biscuits, but I actually bought them from this shop, COZ ITS DAMN AWESOME!

We went to some places and took some photos, Macau really has the very very nice buildings, nice place, and its really something that calms me down no matter how hectic my mood feels ~

Jiao Bin when you camwhore in the sun ๐Ÿ˜€

We went into the alley to shop and walk around, this shop is specially selling handmade beading bags, the uncle in the picture is the one who made all these exquisite bags, and its priced at 2k+ HKD for some of the bags because it’s handmade ๐Ÿ™‚

We walked past a traditional wet market in Macau and I saw this, price list for all the foods, recommended price guidelines, not bad eh ?

Close up of the pricing

Macau people needs to go market too~ The interior looks like SG but with a nicer weather and awesome people! ๐Ÿ˜€

Traditional handmade almond biscuits that taste real awesome! OMG~ Seriously must dabao go back!

We bought Portuguese egg tart and its damn awesome~! Smooth and not too sweet, fragrant~!
We stood at a small alley and ate them as our shopping bags were too heavy~
While eating, I saw many students walking around, it’s weekday and they had to go school ๐Ÿ™‚



I told Lao Niang, I’m going to approach any student and take a photo of an authentic Macau Student!~
I Succeededdddddddddddd~ OMG~ The guy initially got a shock but he’s friendly and gladly accepted my “invitation” ๐Ÿ˜€
YEAH! And I spoke to him using my lousy Cantonese ๐Ÿ˜€

We happened to walk past this Jap shop selling Kitty stuffs, and Lao Niang told me if Mido saw this tee, she will go crazy~ So tadah!~

Next, we went to Yu Yan Ma Tau ~

This hotel is damn nice ~

Even the toilet is so nice ๐Ÿ˜€

I started again , with my skimpy dressing in a cold country , its awesome to freeze yourself, and also, the weather is best for chilling, so I “unwrapped” myself ๐Ÿ˜€

For a moment, I thought I was in MBS

Here are some photos of the buildings around Macau, I practically walk around the “whole” island ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought of Bitch…

Bitch will be very happy to come here and take photos~

We walked up a bridge and crossed to another building in search for food ๐Ÿ˜€

Our dinner’s venue

Our Menu:

Old Cucumber soup

Thai style bah chor rice

Wanton mee add fishballs~ I suddenly remembered I’m in Macau, because I wanted to ask for dry noodles, but realized that the way to eat it is in soup ๐Ÿ˜€

Pan Fried carrot cake

Double boiled milk ~

Money in HK comes from these 3 banks (from the shopkeeper who told me )
China bank, HSBC and Standard chartered~
I told her that money in Singapore doesn’t come from a certain bank, then she was shocked and asked me where did money came from then? Our “Grandfather” lor~ LOL

We roamed around and saw Macau Polytechnic~ I was damn excited, but the building is enclosed~ How I suddenly wished it’s Republic Poly concept then I can walk in..
But I was damn curious, and die die wanna go in.. So I approached a guy who just came out of the school and asked him if outsiders can go in.. He say, it’s not open to public but nobody would stop you from going in.. So I just went in.. the guard was looking at me and starring because I wore dress in cold day, but I acted as though its a normal routine and he never said anything~

Facilities in the school: (peek)

I walked out and saw an ancient public phone~

I called Cindy and talked awhile and the line was cut off -_-”

Walked past Metro Park hotel Macau, we are going to check in that in HK ๐Ÿ˜€

I bought Gong Cha there, HKD 20 for large cup with jelly and stuffs, nice~

This looks interesting to me, but there’s people guarding at the main door, too bad, otherwise I’ll sneak in ๐Ÿ˜€

We decided to take bus back to our hotel and while walking and searching for the right bus stop, we saw these:

That’s it for now~ Later going to check out and go to HK main island ~


Taipa Day 1

19 Mar

Today is the day I came to Hong Kong and then to Macau.

I arrived in HK airport, no makeup, wearing sleeveless and shorts. But I don’t feel cold at all. Although its quite strange for me to be the only one wearing like that, but I don’t care ๐Ÿ˜›


An overview of the airport thingy~

Chinese Ad

The Octopus card essential for transport ๐Ÿ™‚

I called a few friends and I was quite surprised that Pighead sounded so man on phone… perhaps it was so long since I chatted with him on phone, so LOL

The view from train towards town and arriving at Central, which is different from the TV shows that I watched LOL

In the ferry to Macau, it was a tired journey, walking with 4inches wedges and carrying the luggage, damn heavy, about 30kg, all inside, majority, Kaya, Pandan cake and Yakult + Bah Kut Teh LOL

We took a taxi to this place, which resembles Malacca with the Portuguese feel

I recognised this guy who is a food expert in HK ๐Ÿ™‚

The street view, it was awesome, cool air, artistic feel..


I saw a stall selling sausages and….

Pork Chop Bun~!~
Pighead no.1 told me must go and eat, and I DID IT~!~!

We went to this authentic Portuguese cafe or something for our dinner~

The interior of the place is quite homely yet special for me ~

Foodies and drinks for the nite~

Apple cocktail~

Irish Coffee~

Dessert, bread pudding and something else I forgot, but its an ice cream thingy~

Fried Pork Knuckle~

Travel mate, Lao Niang and Rila ๐Ÿ˜€

Charming dark alley, I was too mesmerized by the charm, I suddenly fell down on the road and brushed my knee on the road surface T_T

This is a charming alley stairs as well ๐Ÿ˜€

Postbox in Macau

We walked into a souvenir shop in Taipa and know this owner, Marco, he’s so nice!

He let us access his wifi and helped us with walking around and even send us to some shopping center ๐Ÿ˜€ He’s a Shanghainese who grew up in Macau and studied in Taiwan University! And he knows who is Namewee! AWESOME!

Marco and us parted here ๐Ÿ˜€

And we went here for shopping~

I love cold weather~ Makeup don’t smudge !

The interior of the shopping place feels like Genting~

Saw this at one of the shops, interesting, and convincing! Cotton Candy~

That’s it for now, tomorrow going to the “real Macau” island to explore~ ๐Ÿ˜€

Bon Voyage~

18 Mar
