Hong Kong Style Diary
This is a random entry.
Sorry for being an incoherent blabber. ;p haha!
Day before the trip. Actually, night before the trip! :D
Slept over at Meh's house, which is like less than 15 minutes to the airport!
The sound of planes taking off is normal in their house! :D
Super excited! Watching Me-an packing up and waiting for Ana (who came from work and packed up that night too), I can't sleep!
Look at my big luggage, to think Geo booked me as Go Light! in Cebu Pac! :D (she's used to booking for domestic flights kasi! :D)
I wore a plain white men's shirt, tucked in my black cotton skirt with diagonal zipper details, and my gray librarian jacket. =) Accessorized with black Circles Bib from my online shop Anagon Collection--which my friends said was like a "Hidden Mickey" thing! :D
Plane with Meh, Ana, and Alli! :)
In HK! :D We have to ride a train from one airport to the next, where we will get our luggages! :D Super cool!
Still the same day! :D
No sleep, no rest----we went straight to Ocean Park! :D
Totally different from my Phil-habits!
I used SMALL BAG (I always lug around big bags for my meetups) and NO CELLPHONES! No effort at all! Hahahaha! I want a vacation, anyway! :)
Weather in HK is the same here in the Philippines!
It was super hot, that by the end of the day, I removed almost every layer of my outfit, from my jacket to my necklace, the tuck-in of my shirt----! I kid that I might end up with no clothes at all! :D hahahah!
Favorite! Natural HIGH! :D
My friends and I love souvenir shopping! :D Hahahaha! Kahit mahal! We always, think of our families! :)
Second Day: Disney Land!!! :D
I will always be a (Disney!) kid at heart! :)
When You Wish Upon a Star and Once Upon a Dream sent shivers to my spine! :) I love Disney!!!
...And DISNEY LAND is HEAVEN! :)
Space Mountain ROCKS! Hahhaha!
We rode this TWICE! :D
It's an indoor roller coaster, and it was super dark and coooold, we can't see the twists and turns!
I love to scare myself once in a while! ;D
I was looking for Peter Pan (what I am wearing--the big green oversized top layered with gray tank inside--is Peter-inspired!)....but atleast I met Captain Hook!!!!!! :D
Me when I saw Captain at a distance: "CAPTAIN! CAPTAIN!" Hahahah!
We will be back! :)
Time constraints prevented us from spending the night in Disney Land =( I really wanted to watch the fireworks with the famous Disney Castle. I can just imagine that When You Wish Upon a Star grandeur will be played, and then Mickey will come out from the Tower. WOW.. Sigh. Hehe ;-) Sorry got carried away! :)
Still on our second day, we went to HK's high-end shopping district! Not really to shop, but to just take pics, and pretend we were in New York or something. Haha! :D
I drooled all-over the bags and jewelries and clothes..! :D
But I don't mind not affording these things (for now! ;))...I have to say that what I wore that day only costs less than P200! :D SWEAR! (except for my Sanuk shoes and bag! ;)). Thanks to bargain hunting and Ukay shopping in the Philippines, I bagged a P100 bubble skirt, and a P30 (!!!!) floral blazer! LOVE! :)
Third day was spent in another country just a boat ride away: MACAU! :D
I love it that my passport was stamped thrice in just 4 days! ;-)
These pics were taken INDOORS!
We were in The Venetian...but we didnt really made our bets in their famous casinos.
But I was really tempted to! =D
Me-an took this pic before we left the hotel. Wearing the H&M shirt my ate bought for me from her Euro trip, paired with black liquid leggings I havent found the chance to wear in conservative-Pinas, and an anagon collection hippie band, and my cute de-shoelace shoes (because i seldom wear sneaks already, i find this cute ;p) Meh capped my Macau-look by being my make up artist! If only I can put my own liquid eyeliner :D I like that this made my tinie-tiny-eyes bigger! ;p
Macau is PICTURE PERFECT! :)
...Big thanks to Tamemeh's tripod for all the group pics! :D
Our fourth day AND last day was spent mostly for last minute shopping! But before that, we also went to a Wax Museum, which Meh (our researcher) said was the "top 1 tourist destination in HK".
After being over-dressed (and loving it, since i can only do this in a foreign country, where i act like a "tourista" haha)...I wore the Mickey Mouse tee I bought in Disney Land. =)
Back to airport, waiting for our flight (last flight! :)) Hay! :) =p
Ive actually read of the term "Fashion Bipolar" countless of times in fashion mags and blogs all-over...and I have to say that my HK-Macau style had been nothing but this. I went from being an over-dresser with skirts and loud prints, to sloppy dressing with my big tees and tsinelas. ;) I enjoy dressing up for trips even though it might mean over-packing, but when I met again with marj after the trip, she told me: "Sayo hindi ako nadissapoint!" (with my outfits). I remembered telling Ana during the trip, while we were dressing up, that dressing my best is "kailangan ko e!" Ana: Bakit naman?
Me: Eto na buhay ko e, yun pag tingin tingin ng Mango window display!
Oh, but more than the clothes, what made my HK vacation is my friends. :)
So maybe everytime I wear my zipper skirt, it will remind me of the plane ride to HK where I was seated next to Alli, and she commented on liking it...although it kept on sliding up haha.
And maybe my green sloppy top will remind me of my Disney trip, where the off-shoulder style became overly-off-shoulderS because of the Space Mountain killer-ride---and Ana kept on laughing on the picture that came out after the ride..where I looked harassed. Haha!
And then there's the "terno tops" of me and Me-an---white loose blouse for Macau-porma, both paired with black leggings and brown shoes as if we're getting ready for a dance number in the middle of the Venetian. Or The Sands. Haha!
One week later, and I am still HongKong-high! :)
Wait for me HongKong, I'll be back!
