Hola guys Your goddess is back.
She survived the 4 days of work with 0 knowledge of Cantonese and her unyielding abhorrence for dim sum. This post gon be long, I spent alot of time editing and writing so y’all lil shits better read each and every word instead of just browsing photos. HAHAHAHA.
This is totally irrelevant to my trip but you know really, I love my VS luggage, passport cover and the fucking stupid bag that has no zip. Thank god my passport didn’t slip out this time round. Because the hotel room had a safe.
The rest of them were already in HK so I had to travel alone. And I loved every second of it. Geez, its so much more fun to be sitting on the plane and enjoying than working on the plane. I realized that I didn’t miss working on the plane, I just missed being on the plane. Hahaha.
It was a full load back and forth. I felt secretly happy I wasn’t the one working but okay la, I pity them. Running around looking flabbergasted and stuff.
I just have to voice out that this doesn’t look or taste like egg. I hope they do something about it :’D It tasted like some angsty chef added his semen into destarched mash potatoes. WHY DID I TAKE PHOTOS OF MY PLANE MEAL? BECAUSE I FUCKING LOVE EATING ON THE PLANE ITS SO ADORABLE LOOK AT THE TRAY AND ALL THE LITTLE CONTAINERS AND THAT LITTLE BREAD ROLL.
And so it begins I reached HK airport.
There are China people everywhere. Alot alot of people. Its congested. Jesus christ. What’s everyone here for?
YES I ACTUALLY TOOK THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT ON MY OWN OMG :O THE EXPRESS TRAIN!!!
I was waiting for the train WHEN I SAW THIS EXTREMELY CUTE GUY (He’s from sg too) AND LIKE WTF DAT FACE. DAT BODY. HEAVEN. I can only watch him from afar and mope because I don’t know him.
NOTICE ME PLZ. PLZ
Weeping on the train as well because there’s no free wifi. Unlike the one I took at KLIA. HAHAHA.
I took the cab from Kowloon to The Mira. Tbh I have only been to HK when I was very young so I don’t remember shit. But WHOA totally looks like those HK police drama scenes. Too bad la, I didn’t see Gu Tian Le.
I need to remind you guys again that I went there for work, so the highlight of the trip was actually the really stunning hotel and the pool facilities.
The Mira, Hong Kong. (5 stars)
FUCKING GORGEOUS ITS JUST OH SWEET CAMEL.
Even the water also must be in artistically sculpted plastic.
So erm in case we were all misunderstanding that I went for a shoot (I initially thought i was as well) But no actually my job was to man a booth and attend some rare coin and notes auction like 007 style.
I had to learn as much as I can about the Solids, Straights, VF, Gem, UNG, EPQ, whatevers in like a few short hours. This is Queen Elizabeth when she was young!
My first ever meal there was eaten in a hurry because I had to sit through an auction for Roger, one of the guys who requested for me to bid a particular coin for him.
It was quite delicious, but fucking expensive like the chicken made of gold or smth. BLOODY DRUNKEN CHICKEN COSTS ABOUT 18 SGD. ITS DAMN TINY OK.
To further demonstrate my road idiocy, I had to get to the place of the auction and exhibition (Holiday Inn) by foot. Something that really puzzles me is how the buildings in HK can look like they barely survived WWII and its right splat in the middle of their supposedly “Orchard” road.
Halfway through the auction I took a toilet break. Jesus fuck, I dozed off halfway. Luckily the Lot I wanted wasn’t in turn yet. Went to the toilet and realized I looked like shit. I was freezing bro. And not to mention everyone at the auction was either an old aunty or uncle and it was boring as fuck.
The auctioneer sounded like a sleep therapist and no sadly the coin Roger wanted far exceeded his budget. It was sold for 20k USD. AND THEN THE NEXT LOT I SAW THIS BLOODY COIN GOING FOR 100K USD WHAT THE FUCK WHY CANT YOU JUST GIVE ME THE MONEY.
Major said the coin is made of Gold, and there are only 21 of such coins minted at that particular time/era. And I wuz liek ok bb I’ma go find dat rich china guy who bought it.
THEN I HAD STEAMBOAT WITH THE BUNCH OF UNCLES AND AUNTY AND IT WAS HELLISH.
You know normally when we go for steamboat it’d be liek so awesome with lots of luncheon meat, beef, lamb, fat pork slices and Yuan Yang ( spicy + one chicken broth )
BUT THIS ONE NO. WE HAD CLEAR SOUP, WITH VEGETATION, FISH SLICES WITH BONES, LEAN PORK AND CHICKEN. THE VEGETABLES WERE PLACED IN FRONT OF ME AND YOU KNOW I AM SCARED OF GRASS.
And they were all talking about their prized notes collection whilst I was just forcing a smile and poking my food. I think even hospitals served more flavorful stuff. HA HA HA. SHHH. Don’t tell them.
The Blue Girl beer was good tho.
But okay it wasn’t so bad, before I had to man the booth the next day, Rick decided to show me around HK. We went to the Peak!
Took the extremely nerve wrecking tram up the mountain. It was almost a 90 degrees inclination upscale….
It was foggy as fuck, not sure if It was fresh mountain air or just smokey but terrible HK air.
Got to see their curious buses that run on the tracks and shit.
Had to do the afternoon shift for the booth, so there was time to dress nice nice, go for lunch (which was supposedly some famous dim sum) before the excruciating work begins.
Took the MTR to MongKok. The only time I have seen this is when I eat at the Wang Jiao restaurant in SG ;’D
THE FOOD WAS LIEK SO FANTASTIC. YOUR GODDESS WUZ REALLY EATING DIM SUM , BRO.
The 3 of us had this overly amazing roast Goose and it costed 30HKD lesser than the FUCKING OVERPRICED DRUNKEN CHICKEN. BIGGER PORTION TOO.
I had my chicken feet that was sprinkled with a copious amount of fried garlic. Its fucking awesome. Char siew pau was so soft and fluffy. They had har gao and all that shit which I really hated. so nope. no photos. HAHAHA. There’s ribs with taro too, Really soft and flavorful loh mai kai and I had my favorite Mango pomelo sago 😀
I ENDURED SITTING AT THE BOOTH AND TALKING TO AHPEKS FOR HOURS…… YAYYYYYY. Major took me on a tour around the rest of the place. I saw this fucking ancient China bank draft. You know, like those Cheena shows we always watch where the rich men will use this to pay for ridiculous shits.
I finally had time to go for dessert before going back to the hotel to literally die and sob on my bed. I only had Hui Lai Shan in JB with Z, I doubt Sg has it. I love their mango desserts.
Again, its fucking overpriced and it’s gigantic. I couldn’t finish it. Its like damn 21 sgd for this shit. DONT EAT THERE. DON’T EAT ANYTHING AT KOWLOON.
SO YES LET ME JUST TALK ABOUT THE WONDROUS HOTEL AGAIN THE POOL AND TOILET WAS SO DAMN AMAZING THAT I WOKE UP EARLY DESPITE KNOWING THERE’S THE FUCKING BOOTH TO WORK AT JUST TO SWIM.
Oh yeah. I love my bikini LOLOL. Sorry, the photos are pretty blurred because no photo-taking is allowed within the pool facility. I had to sneaky sneaky snap whichever I can.
There’s the steam bath and the sauna in the Ladies room. Which are both really lovely because its peaceful and there aren’t many rich taitais hanging around.
The other side of the lounge seats… there’s this beautiful little enclaved Jacuzzi. Everything was so gorgeous I spent way too much time just stoning in there.
A sneaky shot of the pool and Jacuzzi area outside. The water is freaking WARM and amazing so you don’t have to worry about swimming in freezing water in the mornings.
YES OMG. THERE IS THIS MAGICAL SWIMSUIT DRYER. you just place your wet bikini inside, close the lid, let it spin around for a few secs AND YOUR SWIMSUIT BECOMES FUCKING DRY.
LOLOLOL I KNOW IM A FUCKING NERD.
The dressing room was perfectly decorated and well decked with the necessities; Hair dryer, close-up mirrors, cotton pads, lotions, hair sprays etc.
😉 I know I look amazing. It’s just the lighting. HAHAHAHAHAHHA
I went to Temple St, Nan Ren Jie and Nu Ren Jie all in one night cuz there wasn’t enough time. >.>
There’s this whole stretch of tarot card / fortune telling booths along temple street.
Yes, your superstitious Goddess loves tarot card reading. I picked one random one which looked very gypsy and mythical.
I asked about love, and picked the shittiest cards ever. However I felt that the tarot card reader was sub standard la. Not trying to console myself. But really >.> Nothing compared to the very awesome reader that approached me 7 years ago.
This card reader was telling me “Oh my god, the love of your life is going to have an affair with another girl. And he doesn’t love you!!! Leave him!!!! ”
The parade for Good Friday was ongoing whilst I was listening to her warn me about dangerous men.
Yeap that’s some random dude dressing up as the crucified Jesus.
Anyway speaking of which. I was majorly disappointed because there isn’t really anything much to buy in HK. The streets all sell imitation goods which are like Bleh and a weird medley of antiques, paintings, made in china phone accessories and shit.
Went to “Da Pai Dang” Idk wtf is that in English because I didn’t even know where the fuck I was. So anyway it’s kinda like those roadside stalls you see in BKK and Taiwan selling fresh seafood and tze char, the likes.
It’s basically made to scam rich angmohs la. Rick and I spent about 500 HKD ( that’s about 80 bucks )
We had Salted fish fried rice, deep fried mantis shrimps with garlic, Stir fried Nai Bai, Bamboo clams and Spring onion + ginger frogs. Was average, in my opinion. I NEED TO GO BANGKOK.
But really, fucking expensive la, 80 Sgd…. >.> I rather use the money to buy avatars in dota 2. LOLLLLLLLLLLLL
Yes sorry. HI.
Hi. Its me talking about Mira again. The corridors are lovely. Just wanna let you know. HAHAHAHA.
Spent the few nights in my room finishing up my anime story on ipad. JESUS. TAKESHI IS SO HANDSOME RIGHT OMG. HE STRIPPED IN FRONT OF ME OMG PLS NOOOOOOO TAKESHI KUN.
Work was quite tiring and walking around and shit just wore me out. I didn’t go to LKF (Some clubbing district) Because the old men were, well…. Old men. They just go to bed at 9pm.
There’s nothing more fantastic than lying in your gigantic bed alone, with fluffy pillows and your ipad.
And in your soft bathrobe.
I was in heaven.
Had terrible (and expensive) duck noodles at the same cafe again because I went swimming and was running late for work.
Thank god Rick took me shopping around Habourcity area after work. Actually it was more like he went shopping and I watched in envy. We queued damn long outside Hermes. He bought some nonsensical overpriced leather cuff for like 2000 sgd.
And well yes… I got a bra… for like 26 sgd…. talk about difference in net worth. >.>
It’s overpriced la as usual. Every of the boutique shop there is more expensive than the branches in Sg. So… I guess its a good thing since I am saving money :’D
YES. I AM B 70. NOT A. IM NOT FLAT. THANKS GUYS.
Yes, a photo of my flight meal on the way back. Its braised beef with blanched vegs and YES REAL MASHED POTATOES, not eggs. The salad was terrifying. Some couscous shit with rock hard chicken.
My sweetest friend Dominic surprised me with this on board. AHHHH THE PUNS. I ate all the cheese and smiled like an idiot to myself.
NOTHING BEATS GOING HOME TO YOUR TWO BOYFRIENDS WAITING FOR YOU. YEAH.
We have reached the end of my super long and relatively boring post about my very “Fantastic” hk trip. :’D
Next up is Kuala Terrenganu. Erm. Well. Let’s see what we can do there except play dota in lanshops and eating ayam goreng all day long.
I love you guys! 😀
