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….

non-nakedness in Taiwan

Let me just say that the shopping and fashion in Taiwan were awesome! On our first night The Boy and I dropped our bags at the hostel and headed out to the Shilin night markets. They don’t close till almost 2am! There were food stalls (but not much vegetarian food) as well as amazing and cheap shopping!

So this outfit was assisted by the addition of a brand new shirt and tights from Taipei.

And these photos were taken in front of the Maokong Gondola.

Don’t let that name fool you, it’s actually a cable car, it doesn’t go anywhere near the water. Super misleading.

But sadly to The Boy and mine’s disappointment when arrived early Monday morning at the Gondola is was closed for maintenance. So instead we took outfit photos and bought bubble tea. Love me some bubble tea!

Outfit details: Dress (worn as skirt) – Asos. Headband – ebay. Shirt and tights – Night markets. Shoes – Aerosoles (sooo comfy).

So this is my attempt at a practical, comfortable but still not hideous tourist outfit – do you think I pulled it off? Any tips for what to wear when you are a fashionable tourist?
