Christmas 2013: Goodbye Hong Kong!

We spent our last day in Hong Kong to go shopping! To be completely honest, I find shopping in a foreign country very tedious. I compute everything quickly in my head, and doing so in the street market in Hong Kong provides more problems because some of the sellers actually held on to my jacket when I did not even touch anything or inquired for the price.

OOTD: Ukay jacket, Bubbles skater skirt, Hong Kong (no brand) tights, Charles & Keith sling bag, H&M bonnet/head cover, ALDO boots

We have been passing by the stall of Maxim’s Cakes in the subway so I decided to buy a small piece of every flavor I’d like to try.

Hello, gluttony!

I had to change into a different skirt in the middle of the day since my pink skirt got ripped. Sigh. #NewOOTD

image

Since we went shopping, we didn’t have a lot of photos that day.

Bought this necklace in one of the tiangge in Hong Kong!

image

More selfie photos!

image

We also bought soft ice cream (HK$ 8) from the ice cream truck even if it was 10 degrees outside!

I have already made plans with C to go on a Macau-Hong Kong trip sometime in the future! I really can’t wait! :)

Christmas 2013: Good night, Macau!

Our trip back to Hong Kong was scheduled for 10 PM, so we decided to roam around. I took a lot of photos.. of myself which I send to C whenever I get a wifi connection.

We found this food stall in another side street and ate again! It is also very cheap, so if you’re traveling on a budget, check side streets for local delights.

Christmas lights make a lot of views better!

The Postal Office at night.

image

We went inside one of the exhibits that contain some archaeological finds.

Finally, a nice family portrait!

image

Funny story, the security guy who took our family photo was also from the Philippines! He initially thought I was a foreigner. Haha!

image

Macau is so much better at night.

And no, we didn’t go shopping in this part of Macau. I’d probably have to work 120 hours a week to afford it!

Christmas 2013: Ruins of St. Paul’s

We finally found it!

The ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

See? I need a monopod.

The cathedral was ruined by a fire in the 1800s and the facade was restored.

The following would have been cute photos if those two strangers were not in the view.

It was getting late when we left. I love ‘em pretty lights.
