Where Have We Been?

lets travel the world together...


My boyfriend Michael has been visiting Hong Kong for the last 2 weeks and we have been busy trying to cram in a whole bunch of touristy activities before he has to go back to Orlando (that is, if I let him go back...). Bare with me here cause a lot of this will just be pictures and a list of what we have done, since a lot of it I have done previously, and I don't want to bore you with the details all over again. 

So February 4 after work, I picked up this handsome fella from the Hong Kong airport. We had popeyes chicken and then took the taxi back to Tin Shui Wai. Needless to say, I was very excited to see him!

The next day I had my contract meeting with entertainment to find out if I was going to be offered another 6 month contract to stay in Hong Kong, or finish out my contract and head home in March. I was extremely fortunate to be offered to stay, and signed my contract on the spot. Mike was also very excited for me and cooked me a celebratory dinner (which included mashed potatoes! A rare find here!)

The next day, I had the day off and we finally got to do some sight seeing in HK. We kept ourselves busy by doing the Star Ferry Tour, Avenue of Stars, we found this super cute bookstore called Flow, saw the TST Light show, and went to the night market.

He has been adapting pretty well I think. I am also really proud of him for branching out and trying new things, like bubble waffles and using chopsticks for almost every meal.

There was one day when heading to the chiropractor, we stumbled upon this festival in a temple. I bought this precious little keychain with lucky pinwheels on it. 


That night we went to a very famous place called Tim Ho Wan for dim sum (little dumplings). They are known for their BBQ Pork Buns, which while there, we defiantly got our fair share of.

I have been AM shifts a lot this week so that I am able to still work, but then leave early so Mike and I can go on our adventures. The only down side is that the weather since Mike got here has been terrible. It has been extremely cold and rainy literally thee whole time. Mike jokes that the sun does not exist in HK. Regardless, we have been trying to make the best out of it. We went to Discovery Bay to encourage some fellow GM cast members participating in the craft bizarre there. Of course, when in DBay, you have to take advantage of the situation and have Mexican food (since one of the three Mexican restaurants in Hong Kong is there). Mike also fell in love with Pacific Coffee Company, and now points them out every time we see one.
Mike got to come to the park and see my show (4 times in a row...oops.) and it was freezing. We tried to ride some rides and get in some Disney time in before my shows.
So the science Museum in Hong Kong has a dinosaur exhibit right now and I have been wanting to go and check it out. Wednesdays for some museums here are free, and although the science museum was free, the dinosaur exhibit was not. Sad face. But we had fun at the science museum anyways.
The Charlie Brown cafe was right down the road from the museum, so of course we had to pay it a little visit.

Mike has really enjoyed the market places here, and we went to the king of the HK markets here, Mongkok. Mike made out like a bandit with so many things.


One of our final adventures for this week has been venturing out to see the Big Buddha. It was cold and rainy, but we did it!

For Valentines Day we went to Macau, but that is going to be a whole different blog post because there is too much to add. Yesterday was the final day of Chinese New Year. To cap it off tonight there is a Lantern Festival in the park near our house tonight. 

Till then, here are some pictures from the latest GM shows as usual....
