Brand new year, brand new start?
Spent new year's on board a plane back home from Macau. It was a good trip, and I reckon I've put on quite a bit of weight in the past 5 days. O.O!
Funnily enough, apart from stuffing ourselves with Chinese goodies, we didn't buy much. Didn't even manage to get any souvenirs of the non-edible variety. All we did was eat, sleep, buy snacks and drinks, visit tourist attractions etc.
The first 2 and a half days in Zhu Hai were great. Food was awesome, hotel rooms were spacious and comfy, took a lot of nice pictures... Macau was good too, though everything was much more expensive. They didn't have many tourists spots per se... but they had a lot of casinos. -.-
33 in total.
And Malaysia only has one.
The age limit over there is 18, so dad decided to bring me in one. The lady didn't believe I was 20 so I had to show her my ID. Grr... She was all: HAH? 20? Aiya you show me your ID la, later I get into trouble.
After I whipped out my IC (which, embarrassingly, had the photograph of me when I was 12), she took a solid 15 seconds to do the math (2010 minus 1990, hello???).
Didn't fancy it, to be honest. I don't see the point of sitting there pushing the button and hoping the pictures would match up. *rolls eyes* Of course, being in China, every Tom Dick and Harry was smoking, so I couldn't wait to get out of the place.
We went to the Venetian (Macau), which was a hotel, casino and shopping centre situated on a HUGE piece of land. These people should stop building huge-ass casinos and start making room for the citizens. Our tour guide was telling us how big the gap is between the rich and the poor. For want of a big fortune in a short space of time, the poor result to gambling. Hence, the poor get poorer, the rich get richer.
Pictures will be uploaded soon. =)
Went to Pavilion yesterday for lunch with the parents and sis. Bought another pair of Nine Went shoes (boots, actually). Hey, they were on 50% sale! As well as a nice laced top from FCUK, on 60% sale. Heehee.
Decided not to get anything from Macau cause everything was more expensive. Like, MUCH more expensive. The same boots from Nine West I bought from Pavilion were selling for 3 times the price in Macau!
Righto, I need to print that statement thing from Aeroline or I won't be able to get on that bus to Singapore tomorrow morning.
