Hong Kong 2011- Day 6&7

15 Feb

Hi everyone,

It’s time for the last part of my Hongkong travel log 2011 😀

So while walking back to our hotel from avenue of stars on the previous night, we actually passed by the China-HK ferry terminal. It’s just so coincidental! So we headed in to get our tickets for the next day! There a couple of ferry carrier, I’ve read reviews from forum and bloggers so in the end we decided to take first ferry.

The next day morning, we woke up late inspite we wanted to have our breakfast here. So in the end, we take away and ate our breakfast on the way to the terminal

澳洲牛奶公司  Australia Dairy Company
Address: 47 Parkes Street, (Jordan) 佐敦白加士街47號地下
Opening Hours: Daily 730am to 11pm.
Directions: take exit C2 of Jordan MTR (right beside mak man kee noodles)
Famous for: Egg sandwich, Egg pudding, Milk tea

We were there around 8-ish and there was a slight queue.

We ordered the famous egg sandwich! 🙂

Ops, my apologises! was rushing that I forgot to take the picture of the sandwich so well to make up for it, here’s a picture of me & the sandwich 😛

Actually the sandwich were huge! we could have order just a portion to share instead of 2.

So we finally reach the terminal!

And awaiting to board the ferry
CAUTION: It’ll be good if you could carry sweets or plums up even though you had never had sea-sick before. I was feeling so uncomfortable throughout the ride especially the return ride. GOSH.

The ticket! 🙂 If ya heading with you friend, make sure you all check in together so the ticketing personnal will give you seats together. If not you’ll be on single seats!

Germaine & I

And then we finally reach after an hour or so ride. Everything was still alright but the immigration queue was absurdly long. We queued for half an hour before offically entering macau. There are actually mini tours that offered you and your friends (yes just you guys) so me & germaine was contemplating for quite some time for this 3hrs trip and in the end we decided we’ll go for it to try. Each of us paid HK$350 (s$58.30) for the 3 hours trip to the places we want (hmmm, kinda regret it now actually)

Note: For Macau, I would not have much information of the places (ie. address) so mostly would be pictures, Apologises!

The tour started with showing us the 3-4 casino side by side at the round a bout

and then we requested to go to Margaret’s Café e Nata (瑪嘉烈餅店) whom sells really good Portuguese egg tart

Please take note of the operating hours

Range of menu offered

The egg tart 🙂

Bought a few boxes back to Singapore! 🙂 If i didn’t remember wrongly, the egg tarts can last 5 days in the fridge 🙂

Next we were at sendao square

Portguese style Maccas!

In Macau, there are a lot of chapels, churches around as in the early days Macau was dominated by Portuguese, that’s the reason why Macau has many footprints of the Portuguese.

You can read up more of the history here: http://www.macautourism.gov.mo/en/info/info.php

First up St Joseph Seminary and Church
