Food onboard SQ airplane
Landed in Hong Kong AIrport

Today we were preparing to visit Hong Kong as we heard so many stories about there and those food being mentioned all the times. Now we decided to go and venture into those food and see for ourselves if it is like what we imagine to be. After making our way to Singapore Changi Airport, we visited the Butterflies Garden before going onboard the SQ flight.

After boarding and the flight took off in the air, we were being served for lunch. As you could see from the photographs, the food looked kind of delicious. Overall, our verdict for this trip on the plane, it was okay for the food onboard.

Upon arrival to Hong Kong, we went straight to our hotel taking A21 bus directly from the airport. Soon after we had settled in the hotel, we went to have our dinner at one of the shops. As you could viewed from the pictures, we found it to be quite normal meals and not that spectacular about it.

After strolling around the area, we went back to the hotel to rest for the next day’s activities.

Till we write again for our Day 2 experience in Hong Kong trip, we shall end here and if you had been to Hong Kong, please do share your comments of your trip. Once again, do have a great day ahead.

14 Oct experience in Auckland New Zealand

Today we decided to visit as many beaches in Auckland, New Zealand. It would be one of the kind experiences which normally we won’t be doing while on vacation. It was definitely one of our best exploration as we would be able to breath in some of the negative ions while experiencing the beauty of each visit. Ain’t that a beauty?

We had lots of fun and nice experiences while visiting some beaches in Auckland, New Zealand. These beaches were so clean and there were lots of seashells on the beaches but not allowed to pick as there were Signs showing that it would be an offend for picking those shells.

Once again we had completed the day visiting and hope that you have enjoyed viewing those photographs as well as videos. If you had been to Auckland, please do kindly share your comments so others can also benefit it. Thank you and do have a great day ahead!

10 Oct Auckland experience of sightseeing and food

White + Wong’s in Auckland, New Zealand

It was another fine weather day where we were out for shopping and sightseeing. Came to this place called White + Wong’s in Auckland, New Zealand to have our meals but one look and there were many people actually queuing up to enter the restaurant. Wow! Such a big crowd and it would take us at least an hour or more to wait for our turn. Guess we opt-out and went to another place to dine instead.

5 Oct in Auckland New Zealand holidays vacation

Waterfall at Hunua Falls
Hunua Falls

We set off to Hunua Falls as to breath in those negative ions which was said to be fresh and healthy to inhale. So we got up early this morning and took 2 hours drive from the Auckland home before reaching.

Information about Hunua Falls

After the Hunua Falls, we went to Maungakiekie One Tree Hill for some hiking. Though it was not that long journey but took us quite a bit of time to climb up to the top of the hill.

When we reached up to the top of the One Tree Hill, it was rather windy and cooling at a temperature of 15 degrees or so. Indeed was a nice beautiful day to have a hike up the hill top to enjoy the nice scenery and fresh air.

After all day walking, it was time to settle down and had a delicious meals at this restaurant. We took ourselves to some places to shop before returning back to our Auckland’s home. This day really drain us our energy with lots of walking but fortunately, the temperature was just right and cooling so we didn’t mind at all.

Well, again this end of the day in Auckland, New Zealand exploration and we will chat again another day. If you have anything to share about New Zealand, please give your comments below. Hope you too have an enjoyable day!

Thailand holiday vacation

Arrived in Bangkok and managed to drag our luggage all the way to our hotel that we booked numerous times in our vacation over those years. It seemed to be one of our best choice in selection for our vacation as we loved the environment and convenient location as well as the good services they provided during our stay.

Terminal 21

After we checked in our hotel, we went to Terminal 21 to have our meals. It was very convenient to walk to Terminal 21 from the hotel as it was just around 5 minutes stroll.

Pad Thai
Pad Thai

We ordered two different version of Pad Thai to try and turned out to be very tasty and nice. For all our trips in Thailand, we would ordered this particular dish as it was much tastier than those places we can get in Singapore. Somehow the taste is much better when you are getting it from Thailand itself. Maybe the seasoning they used for Thai people is different from those we get in Singapore.

Christmas Tree

We were there in late November 2019 and we could see that the streets were already filled with Christmas decoration.

Mango sticky rice

Another dessert that we would never miss will be the Mango Sticky Rice. It is always the delight to taste the freshly cut mango with the sticky rice. Though we tried making our own mango sticky rice here in Singapore, we still loved to get our mouth filled with it when we are in Thailand. It is something that we will never miss to try during all our visits in Bangkok.

This time at the MK Restaurant, the food overall was just okay unlike the last time we were here. Somehow the food wasn’t as nice as we had previously experience. Wondering why…

We continued shopping at Terminal 21.

Our trip lasted for 7 days as there were lots of shopping to buy stuffs as well as tasting different types of Thai food. There were lots of photo taking and we believe that you too will be able to enjoy yourself when you visit Thailand. We had lots of fun while having our vacation and also kind of relaxing as we were not in tight schedule since we were doing our own free and easy travel vacation unlike tour packages.

Of course if you book tour packages, you can covered more attraction sites but it would rather be kind of tight schedule. We loved to be travelling free and easy as we could control our timing as where we wish to visit without the stress.

Here are some more photographs before we end our trip in Bangkok. Unfortunately we cannot upload all since we took more than hundreds of photos during this trip.
