My last company trip

You may feel confused as I just start working this month and how come I can be entitled for company trip? Ok, let me tell you, this entry is supposed to be posted 3 months ago.

For your information, I worked as a part-time project coordinator after resigning from the full time position on year 2006 to further my degree. So I was entitled for the last company trip even I was just a part-time staff because of my great contribution during my 3 years full-time employment since year 2004. *smug*

I was the chief planner of this trip. Because of the budget given was limited, we were only able to fly to Macau (again). This was my second time to Macau and the first time was also a company trip.

U can spot no changes on my look. I'm still the tiny girl with long straight hair. The only difference is the fine lines on my face and eyes are more visible now. Hmmm.... Maybe I didn't even have fine lines three years ago. *Sigh*

I want to throw my Estee Lauder, Clinique and Lancome skin care products and opt to botox or something that can yield fast and visible results plus complete wrinkle prevention! Ok, I'm just kidding. Botox is too dangerous for me though it's not very expensive. I had the impulse to try a Botox injection when I was in Taipei. (So you understand why there are so many "chun chicks" in Taiwan)

Back to the story. Before we departed to Hong Kong by turbojet, we visited a very beautiful place in Macau.

It was.............



Macau Fisherman's Wharf

Macau Fisherman's Wharf is just beside the ferry terminal and it features many attractions such as Vulcania, Aladdin's Fort, Aqua Romanis, Roman Amphitheatre and so on.




Pardon my pale look without makeup after 4 hours' flight



First attraction--- Tang Dynasty



Surprisingly, Christmas decorations were still on



War Game available here!



Is the gun real?



Who looks cuter?









Time to eat!!!!


We chose to dine in a Si Chuan restaurant. Scroll down to see what we ordered.



Here I come!



Pork with garlic paste and chili oil



Deep fried pork rib served with potatoes









This dinner was not cheap because one bowl of rice cost about RM3.80. However, all the dishes were very special to me and they really tasted above the average.



We didn't have enough time to take more photos because we got to catch the turbojet to Hong Kong. So we just "walked horse saw flower" and most importantly, took as many photos as we could.



Cape Town



Campo Maior



Roman Amphitheatre








Is this Fisherman's Wharf nice? I bet you would definitely say yes. Undoubtedly , Macau is not just the place for gambling and Portuguese tarts. And what's more? The entrance to Fisherman's Wharf is free of charge!!!!




Pictures taken in the turbojet. On my way to Hong Kong.............


Attention! Hong Kong's hottest spots and foods are on the way. Please be patient because all the foods (photos) are chilled in the fridge (computer) for too long time and I need some time to warm (photoshop) it because I've no microwave (internet) when I want to eat (blog).

Masking myself

A short update......

My ex boss bought me these things when he back from Taiwan for a short course.









Yes, it's my favourite made-in-japan eyemask from Lifecella! Yoohoo!!!! Enough for 2 months' supply.

Vibrant Taipei (Part 5)

Sorry for the lack of update. Been busy for work. Anyway, hope you all like the photos.

On the forth day of our stay in Taipei, we decided to explore some old towns by taking train at Taipei Main Station to hunt for good foods and breath-taking scene.


Taipei Station


Jin Gua Shi

Jin Gua Shi was a gold and copper mining town and now has become a famous scenic spot of Taipei County. But for me, it was a pretty boring place because there was nothing special other than the rainy day. This was the only rainy day during my trip. Imagine how we were going to go up to the mountain to watch the “Yin Yang Sea”.

Hard to imagine right?

I said no straight away without further consideration for climbing the mountain stairs because my right leg ached due to the extensive walking for the previous days.

We went to the Gold Ecological Park to explore those super-ordinary-museum-like buildings. It was quite a disappointing visit because this place was super uninteresting for me. It features exhibits on the development of Jinguashi's mining culture. If you like history, then probably you would be interested in exploring their gold mining age.



Ticket counter


The outlook of the buildings was not bad anyway.











You can hardly hear me to say this when i'm in Malaysia..."I hate rainy days"


This place is just like our Cameron Highlands.


Jiu Fen


Jiu Fen is well-known for their local snacks and delicacies. You would find many small old streets here with many stalls selling wide array of souvenirs and foods. It’s totally different from the hectic and sophisticated Taipei city.












Souvenirs!!!










Delicious local delicacies and snacks!!!!!












After having so much of foods, we decided to burn the calories by doing street-walking when we returned to Taipei city.




Coach, Louis Vuiton and many other branded fashion outlets are just a few steps away from my hotel.

But sadly, our plan was ruined finally. You know why? We ended up in patronising a famous noodle house.



Very different wantan



The sauce of this noodle tasted like peanut paste in salty version. But I didn’t really like it. Too weird!


Time to sleep!!!!! I'm going to Taipei again tonight..... (when I dream ok?)

Cheese More!



Just like many cheese-favouritees, cheesy delicacies are the “must-orders” whenever I dine in a restaurant, café or mamak stall. Obviously, this entry oozes out all the cheese goodness to satiate your appetite. If you are a fan of cheese, you will surely love the flavour and aroma of these creations!



Salad topped with cheese @ Pizza Uno





Cheesiest Nachos @ Vivo city cinema, Singapore






I love this nacho cheese sauce to death. Simply irresistible!



Stuffed crab with cheese @ Kensington




It tasted creamy and cheesy with a little bit of crab meat, but still a great appetizer that release a tapestry of taste in the mouth at first bite.



Mac 'n' Cheese Bites @TGI Friday’s







The golden-fried cheese balls were a blend of creamy cheese and macaroni. Served with a tantalizing marinara dip. Crispy yet cheesy!



Smoke Ham Focaccia @ Food & Tea Hong Kong Restaurant



The lightly toasted focaccia bread flavoured with herbs goes perfect with the mouth-watering cheese and ham in tomato paste



Double cheese speciality tako @ wow tako, Singapore






The ham and cheese tako balls topped with mayo and takoyaki sauce as well as my favourite bonito flakes. It's even better than those i tried in Taipei! Ichiban desho!



Are you hungry now?
