More Thanh Words

"My name is Thanh and I'm a Blogger". Now that I have admitted to that, I can say that I'm a stereotypical "geeky" Engineer who enjoys sci-fi books and movies and into all things technological. I also love music and have a passion for FOOD. I'm a social person and like to talk to people. I hate people who are fake or overly aggressive. If you're also into some serious discussion, with a pinch of sarcasm and a dash of real emotion, then please read on.

Holiday Update Part 1

Here I am currently at Macau airport. I have about 10 minutes to write this post before my plane to Malaysia flies off. So here is a quick update so far of the holiday.

25th Dec

Arrive at Hong Kong at about 10pm. Takes about 40 minutes to get luggage since three flights all arrive at same time. Finally get to hotel to find they made a mistake and overbooked. End up with a crappy room where the whirring of the air conditioner and people walking around outside in the corridor means I can't sleep all night. The shared shower/toilet is atrocious so I skip a shower for that first night.

26th Dec

Hotel room is changed to a much better room and take a nice hot shower. Meet up with my travelling friend Paul's friend Charles. We go eat yum cha. Next we walk all around Wan Chai, Central, Admirality and Tsim Sa Chui and Charles shows us all these cool buildings since he's an architect. We go to the top of Victoria Peak and get a great view of Victoria Harbour. We also go into Madam Tussad's wax show and the wax figures of celebrities is so life like. I've seen some people who look more dead than those wax figurines. At night we eat at a great Japanese restaurant and then go to Victoria Harbour to watch the nightly light show. It is spectacular.

27th Dec

Paul and I head off to Ocean Park. It's got lots of rides as well as sea animals. I loved seeing the dolphins and seals, the shark and fishes in the acquarium. But most of all I loved the two pandas. They were actually awake. The rides were quite good too. For dinner we met up with Charles again for hot pot, which was delicious. I tried some smelly tofu afterwards and did that stink. For dessert we went to a specialised dessert place and I got mango and glutinous rice dessert.

28th Dec

Today Paul and I eat lunch and then start our trip to Macau. We catch the ferry and I hate boats, gives me headaches. Anyway we make it after a lot of waiting around to get tickets, go through customs, waiting for the bus etc. Now I am currently at the airport waiting for the plane to take me to Malaysia. It's nearly time to board so I will say bye and blog at the next available opportunity.
