Shenzhen 2-day trip with my girls - Day 1


As my friend Becky is working in Shangri-La, we got discount booking the hotel in Futian. It is the first time for me living in a 5 stars hotel in Shenzhen instead of at massage centre!

Headed to Dongmen and did some shopping first. Then took the train to 購物公園 coz we were having dinner at 巴蜀風月.

Address: 福田中心區福華三路星河國際大厦2樓西側 (near COCO Park)
It mainly provides Sichuan cuisine which is really fantastic. We ordered 7 dishes and It only cost us RMB350!

My Birthday Trip to Langkawi Day 6


It was the last day of the trip. Didn't have much time coz we had to catch the flight in the afternoon. So we just hanged around the hotel and ate some food. All the food stores were within walking distance from Tune Hotel. If you are too lazy, you may also take the free shuttle in town (CAT).

Pick up at hotel
Langkawi Pulau Payar Marine Park Tour
Back to hotel and wash up

Flea Market near Bayview Hotel

Woke up early today again coz we went for a diving trip at Pulau Payar for the whole day.

It was like around RM$90/ person only... Stupid us...

Had breakfast at hotel. Then, there was a coach picking us up to the pier. We prepared some bread to feed the fish there by putting them in water bottles.

Buffet dinner @Renaissance

Since we found that we exchanged more money than we expected, we decided to have buffet dinner tonight.

Then we went to the reception and asked the staff to help us made an appointment. The staff in Abloom was rally helpful. We asked whether they could give us a ride using tuk tuk as well. (but actually it only took 3 minutes from the hotel to the BTS station!)

Wanna try a cafe in Sai king for a long time. Was attracted by this little cafe because the decorations made it alive and full of joy. Took a train to Hang Hau MTR Station first then minibus number 11A and got off outside Sai Kung Sportsground. Walked around the pier and there were many people going on a boat trip. There were many stalls with people selling boat tickets to Hong Kong Geopark. Wanna go there but we didn't have enough time.
