Sydney, Australia (14 – 21 May 2018) – Day 3

16 May 2018: Today, we were on the road trip from Sydney to Wollongong. I did not know that Australia has such beautiful beaches. The sea is so blue, the wave is so strong (no wonder they like to surf). The sun is bright and hot but the cold wind literally blew the hotness away. The sand is clean, by the way Australian really took care of their environment! Salute!

Helensburgh, Australia

I was so excited that I forgot to take photo of the beautiful view and had to put this photo of me with the view instead.

Siem Reap, Cambodia (Soul Searching) 22-Nov-2017 – Day 01

Not like any other trip before, this was a spiritual trip for me. Trying to get back to reality of life before it took away my senses.

Day 01 – Landed in Siem Reap airport. Taking a tut-tut ride is at least one-time MUST in Cambodia. Experiencing tasting the dust on our face and mouth.

Tips While you are booking your hotel online, you can asked for the hotel to arrange pick-up. you can save about US$5 here!

20171121_151722

Tut-tut

If you ask me about ONE advise, I would say be cautious of  what you eat. Please be very cautious of the food consumed, especially those street foods. It might look delicious but the hygiene are questionable. Bring along some medicine just in case you contracted food poisoning.

If it is not getting any better, please go to the “reputable” hospital. Don’t think about the money you are going to save.

Shell marinate with salt and chili

This kind of old fashion market hardly can be found in the city. Most likely, next 30 years these kind of markets will no longer existed.

La Plantation, Kampot, Cambodia (11-06-2016)

If you like nature, you should visit pepper farm; La Plantation in Kampot, Cambodia. It is about three hours drives from Phnom Penh to Kampot. The road can be bumpy.

20160611_132956

They do have a guide who speak good English to tell you about organic pepper farm.

20160611_134252

That’s me enjoying the view of pepper farm.

Disneyland, Hong Kong 4 Days 3 Nights (Day 2) – Part 1 (02-May-2015)

Beautiful morning to start… 26th floor Hyatt Regency

20150502_071126a

Trying the breakfast at the hotel.. so so only.. about RM100 per pax (not worth it unless you’re a big eater)

20150502_085602a

Looking for direction to get to Disneyland…

20150502_094728a

Check out the hanger.. Woo Hoo.. I am on  the right track.

20150502_102010a

For those who said that Disneyland is only for kids, all I can tell you is “you’re wrong..!”

Going to Disney like going back to time, being a kid again.

Hong Kong 4 Days 3 Nights (Day 1) – Dinner

Check into the hotel, it was around 9.00pm and still haven’t got my dinner. I went down and check out the restaurant but it is all high-class food. I asked the staff where can I have dinner beside in the hotel, she told me I can have it at Sha Tin.

I was worried that the MTR will stop but she told me it will operates until mid-night. Sound good, I walked to the MTR station and hop-in the train.

And I was rounding looking for dinner, the places were packed with people and then I settle down with a restaurant called “Bene Italian”…

Most of the food in the menu were sold out, so I had to try the food less favorite but still it is good.

20150501_212114a

The pasta was so yummy…

20150501_212814a

Seafood salad (ok only..) the squid is not that fresh.

20150501_212821a

20150501_213859a

The dessert were superb…

20150501_215058a

My approval that the pasta, drink and dessert were god good!

20150501_215136a

Tooth-pick with style…

20150501_220038a

It is located in Sha Tin, ground-floor. Highly recommended.

Here is the address: Shop 103A, 1/F, New Town Plaza Phase 1, 18 Sha Tin Centre Street, Sha Tin

**The food in HK is not cheap, per meal is about HK100 (RM50).
