Macau

IMG_1732

So here are some photos from my adventure in Macau. For those that were wondering, Macau is an island near Hong Kong that was a Portuguese colony for 400 years before returning to China in 1997. It’s main industry is gambling in their many casinos. They rake in more moolah than Las Vegas. Crazy. But you won’t see any photos of casinos here. I went for a wonder in the Taipa village to see traditional Portuguese architecture and Chinese temples/shrines. It was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of HK.

Hi Friends,

This post comes at you again from the early morning hours.

This morning I woke up with the grand plan of going to Macau for the day. (Nevermind that I planned on going on Sunday but the Grand Prix nixed that). So I was up bright and early when I realised that Macau is a different country and so I’d need my passport to go. Boooo! Because my passport was with the Chinese embassy getting my visa for the weekend travels.

So I rolled over and went back to sleep.

I gave up on the plan.

But then, mid-snooze, a new plan was born. I would go to the embassy and get my visa express and then hurry on my way to Macau.

So that’s what I did. It cost me like double, but it meant that I could salvage my Macau plans.

And it was a success! Thanks to the new plan I spent a lovely day in Macau!

And this is what I wore for my day as a tourist….

Happy Weekend Friends!

The Boy and I have been on a planning frenzy lately.

These past few days we’ve booked our trip to Spain and Morocco (for January), to Kaiping in China for next weekend (eep visas!) and tomorrow I’m going to Macau! It’s been BANANAS.

If you’ve been to any of these places I’d love to hear some tips. Also generally useful travel tips, like how to be safe or to save money are always welcome.

I’ve stolen The Boy’s university tote. Just ’cause I can.

I have to say that I’m mighty happy that it’s cooled down enough in HK to wear long sleeves. But I’m still wearing sandals so clearly it’s not actually cold yet. Boo.

In other wonderful news, on Monday I hand in my last assessment for passing the bar. I’m sooooo close to actually being a lawyer (assuming I pass – eep!). Wish me luck and have a great weekend!
