while waiting for time to meet up for dinner I thought might as well type post some photos up. i think gone are the days where people blog but i feel it's good to be doing it. at least I can keep track of what I did in case some months felt as tho' they went unnoticed at the end of the year but most times it serves as a reminder on how to get around when I'm overseas. All the train stops and what not. wish i did a better one coz the last time at Frankfurt i realize there wasn't any mentions about the train stop nearest to da'hotel..
random photos coz when i have a camera with me i do nothing interesting and when I don't, I come across new places and photo worthy stuffs.

was too bored and didn't know what to do I ended up at boy's work place waiting for him to end OT. 9pm.. after countless rounds of Match It on viwawa.

For awhile I've been comparing Mac air with other Windows laptop in the market but i didn't wanna get it becoz I found it user unfriendly. on top of that I've always hear my sis complaining about her's hanging and safari crashing.
so i decided to list down what i like about mac mentally.
- it's 2 fingers scroll n'zoom
- slim and light weight
- reasonable battery life
- screen resolutions
which seems to be available on every other laptops these days. I was sold when I saw Asus Zenbook.

prior to making payment, a salesman introduced me Vaio which is lighter, has longer battery life and uses SSD but it wasn't worth the price I'm asked to pay. when i approached another salesman he told me Vaio was bought over and will cease from the market in near future.
am glad i asked another person.
guess i have shallow finger print. sometimes the touch pad don't response when i'm trying to scroll. even when I'm scanning my thumb to cross customs I need to push my thumb down otherwise i'll have to wait for a few more seconds.
apart from the exterior, what i liked best is it's touch screen function. i literally "Wah!" in Best Denki when the salesman did a demo on how to use Windows 8 via the screen. there's a lot of touch screen devices nowadays but i forgot it exists on laptops too.
it's touch screen capability has proven to be very convenient when for some reasons i can't reach part of the screen using touch pad coz I'm always sitting on the bed when I'm outstation. it just felt safer to sit on a bed than a chair.
i don't run demanding programs/ games, all i do is watch movies and skype etc the basic things. i've never felt it turn warm at all and the most amazing thing, i don't even know where's my speaker but it's very clear and seems to come from the bottom.

after telling boy i blogged he proceeded to
spamming sending me 27 photos he took with his phone via whatsapp n'thanks to the horrible weather, I'm in my room with blogger.com and BFF on messenger. we're reminiscing about school days, how we had this thing called OHP then visualizer etc and there was this only-i-found-him-cute guy always coming to our class to borrow the former.
on our way to Tim Ho Wan on a beautiful breezy morning.
BBQ char siew bun
chinese sausage w/ chicken and rice
white turnip cake
am hungryyyyy X.X
wolfberries osmanthus jelly
the HKD$28 for a dozen egg tarts.
random dessert night
shrimp wanton noodle soup
this is part of the reason why i insisted in going to hongkong, i wanted boy to try the noodles. don't know what they added inside but its so so gooood!!
the bump was worst than turbulence; boy told me he had a mini heart attack when the ferry felt like it flew above sea level. thankfully i had no idea what happened.

it's 10:10am in London now. been trying to go back to sleep for the past 3 hours or so but my body recognizes it's evening in singapore even tho' i slept late last night.
on our last day we took a ferry from hong kong to Macau, to be honest, we were pretty lost. there wasn't a proper sign or directory to tell us where to go so we joined a random queue which turned out to be a shuttle bus to The Venetian.
i was searching for the glitz and glamour amongst the grey airport while waiting for the bus. y'know how movies portray macau to be?
The Venetian ^^had some trouble looking for food so we ended up at their food court which was in my opinion, pricey, compared to HongKong. when we were making payment I realized we can use HKD as well coz it's 1:1.
before we made a "killing" in the casino
lucky us won $30 from baccarat! felt it was amazing we didn't lose any.
macau style lok lok
super excited and were in awe when the aunty pushed away a tray in front of her to reveal a pot of bubbling hot oil but we made our order and was too late to change.
warm vitasoy from vending machine
can we have it in singapore too?!
ferry back to hongkong
happy valentine's day xoxo
