Hong Kong-Macau Trip 2017 + Highlight Vlog

Happy New Year!

It has been a long while since I’ve posted anything. It was quite a hectic period after my last post, it was the Christmas Holiday then New Year. Right after that we had a 3-weeks long vacation in Hong Kong, my hometown! Seeing my family right at the start of the New Year was surely refreshing and rejuvenating to the soul and heart. Mark and I have traveled around Hong Kong before so we tried to go to places we haven’t been before. I’ll list down places we’ve visited below.

 To make up for the time passed, I’ve made a Hong Kong -Macau Trip Highlight Video.

Enjoy!

Hamilton: An American Musical

October 6th, 2016

A super full on day with a lot of sparkling drinks.

First off, Liz and I first had lunch at Del Posto, a Michelin Star Restaurant. They gave a wonderful experience. They had a live pianist – that’s all the elegance right there!

It was an incredibly spacious restaurant. I believe they have about 3 floors – the main floor is where main dining area is along with the bar area on the far left. Then there’s a beautiful staircase leading to the mezzanine level for larger parties. Finally, there’s a lower level for the private dining rooms/events.

Onto the experience: We had their lunch prix fixe menu of about $50, in which I think is amazingly affordable. Unfortunately, I’m bad at remembering what I had – all I know is that it was delicious delicious delicious! I am definitely planning to visit again.

The geniuses behind the incredible restaurant are: Lidia Bastianich, Mario Batali, and Joe Bastianich. The experience was truly amazing! I highly recommend making a reservation to get your own wonderful experience, www.delposto.com

 

After that, we headed to the Richard Rogers Theatre by Subway. For a moment, we thought we were late when actually we were super early! So, we had a another dessert at Le Bernardin – another Michelin Star Restaurant. Again, I forgot what I had (Note to self: Write things down!)

Finally, we walked to the theatre and gosh there were so many people! This was my very first NYC Broadway Show so I have no clue how things work. Apparently, the people outside that waits in a long line are those who are waiting for any last minute cancellation tickets or those who are hoping that the characters would do a pop up greet? I don’t know – I could be 100% wrong.

Okay so Liz did her thing with getting tickets which was funny because we had to cut through so many lines. Then when we sat down, it took me a while to realise that we were sitting on the 5th row to the stage! – It was so close!! The show immediately started and everything just happened. I’m sure my jaw dropped all the way. To be honest, I had no idea who Alexander Hamilton was – he sure was and is important. He created the financial system that we use until today. The show was very educational and a must see!

 

I enjoyed every bit of it. I guess I can truly call myself a New Yorker now? Naaah. Haha.

Thank you for reading!
