FuFu World Tour - Macau & Hongkong
27th - 30th June 2007
KL Sentral to LCCT, one way ticket is RM8, return ticket is RM13.
My ever first visit to LCCT in June 2007.
Same with those budget airlines airports in US and European countries.
Thought i could check-in myself, it's only for the domestic flights.
I was heading to Macao, peeps.
It's still early and i had yet eaten anything for lunch.
Sipping coffee with a chicken sandwich was a luxurious lunch for me.
Here i was going to be on board.
Like KLIA, you can get in the boarding area by these three auto gates.
Relatively, it's less people flying with Airasia two years ago.
I saw this amazing plane while walking to the plane flying to Macao.
Oh, this was the plane i ought to get on.
It's going to take off, so excited man!
Now everyone can fly - thanks to Airasia. *hugs*
Ouch, finally i could go to toilet.
Damn, the view was really stunning.
Flying above the South China Sea.
Who said the flight attendants of Airasia are all 'pork chop'?
The in-flight menu.
The most expensive nasi lemak kosong (RM7) i had ever had!
After the meal, Mr. Sun was going to set to the other side.
Another one hour to go.
Thanks god, we landed safely in Macao International Airport.
It's kinda blur, but anyway this is the airport.
My second visit to Macao.
First time was from Hongkong.
Waiting my luggage brought from Kuala Lumpur with AK52.
Hey guys, i came to the downtown already yeah.
Gotta look for my lodging first - Augusters.
MOP 50 for a bed/night. (picture taken the next day)
After putting down my luggage, i looked for food.
The time shown was 11pm, still full of customers.
My late dinner - wantan noodle and soy milk.
I would not miss exploring the city, of course.
Wow, the neon light lit up everywhere especially those casinos.
Macau's economy is based largely on tourism, much of it geared toward gambling. With the opening of the Sands Macau, the largest casino in the world as measured by total number of table games, in 2004 and Wynn Macau in 2006, gambling revenues from Macau's casinos were for the first time greater than those of Las Vegas strip, making Macau the highest volume gambling centre in the world. Below are the casinos located around the city centre.
The famous Lisboa Casino and Hotel.
The Diamond Casino.
The French Lourve Casino.
The President Casino.
The American Wynn Casino and Hotel.
The Grand Casino of Lisboa.
The new and the old Lisboa Casinos.
This was actually my second visit to Macau. Before going to Hong Kong, i walked around Largo do Senado and had brunch at a stall before walking to the ruins of Saint Paul's. What i had was chee cheong fun, (rice noodle roll, also translated as steamed rice roll) is a Cantonese dish, commonly served as a variety of dimsum. Sweet soy or spicy sauce is poured over upon serving.
I was staying here for a night.
I walked around the city centre - i forgot the name of the bridge.
The Macao Tower.
I was naturally guided to this stall.
Quickly i ordered and sat down waiting my breakfst.
The steamed rice roll with sweet and chili sauces and fresh soya milk.
Continued my city exploring after the breakfast.
The old Post Office.
The Largo do Senado.
Santa Case da Miscricordia.
The square is paved in traditional black and white Portuguese style.
Not to forget to have one delicious Portuguese egg tart.
The number one souvenir shop in Macao for jerkies and biscuits.
The Ruins de St. Paulo.
It's time to walk back and get ready for Hongkong.
Took the ferry back to Hongkong.
Gotta fill in the arrival card even though visa is not needed.
Yeah, finally i had arrived Hongkong.
You could surf the net for free inside the MTR station - cool.
The first thing to do - had a stick of curry fish ball - yummy.
Came to Wanchai and waited for German.
Met up my Xangan buddy finally. German is like a precious charm. True and loyal friend, you can count on this lady to be always right where you need her to be. I actually knew her almost three year ago (2006 June, i guess) and we met up couple of months later in Hong Kong and had a great times travelling with her friends as well to Macau, Lam Tsuen, Shatin, Hong Kong Disneyland, etc.
One of the streets at SOHO.
Well, she brought me to SOHO, the area consists of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, the art galleries and antique stores as well as residential housing.
The Stone grill - nope the next door's French restaurant.
I had a great and the most expensive dinner ever. The french course was way too good! Personally, i loved the melon ice cream the most. We then met up Ivan and had a drink together at Langham Place. The place where i got drunk and recorded during my first visit to Hongkong. Something sweet to reminisce now.
The French soup - very thick but acceptable.
The French salad - fresh salmon.
The French foie gras (goose liver) - first time for me.
The French melon ice cream was served half way the course.
The French beef steak - juicy and tender = great.
The French seafood spaghetti - the sauce was was too good.
The French choco cake and corn ice cream - choco matches corn well.
The French pumpkin pudding - best of the best.
German requested a picture with the desserts.
Last but no least, the French coffee.
We were satisfied with the gorgeous French course.
FuFu and German - 28/06/2007.
The dinner cost us HK$650. >"<
Thankfully, it was a treat from German. *arigato*
We later met up Ivan at Langham Place for a drink.
We had drink at the same place in 2006 too.
I, always got drunk easily even after a glass of drink.
German asked if i still remember the clip taken last year or not.
I will not forget. Definitely. Because i always watch the clip.
We indeed had a great time in 2006. Check out the clip of cutie FuFu.
I was drunk. They asked me for a birthday present for German.
Back to my hostel - the Dragon Hostel in Mongkok.
