13 JANUARY • Last day in Hong Kong. I have never been to the HONG KONG HISTORY MUSEUM from all my trips to this country. So my brother brought me and YH to this wonderful place. Its huge really huge! So big that they can even built a to scale "pau" hill (包山) in the museum.... I was so impressed. To learn more about this 包山, read from this website.
13 JANUARY • This is my last day in Hong Kong but I didn't wake up early to go breakfast with YH cos I was really really tired. YH wanted to challenge himself to go out by himself. He can only speak English and Japanese...so so so I was a little skeptical about him going out alone. But since he is an independant person, I shouldn't worry too much. In the end, he came back with an interesting experience he had while trying to make the waiter in a restaurant understand what he wanted to order for breakfast...Practically its' chicken talking to a duck"....I can imagine the scenerio...hahahahaha, I told YH, it was a good experience...for him, of course.
11 JANUARY • Shopping with my sister-in-law. She brought me to this shop that gives very good discount on branded clothes. I didn't intend to shop in this trip but saw a nice and ideal jacket to get for JH's belated Birthday. Then I also bought a dress and a bag for myself. Good buy really good buy.
10 JANUARY • YH and me went to a supermarket. Sorry we were still in Hong Kong. What were 2 tourists doing in a supermarket? shopping of course, we busy piling up our trolley with instant packet macaroni. So funny....And we really bought a lot cos only Hong Kong carries this. We really bought a lot...no joke...

1 JANUARY • What did I do on New year 2010? Stay in Singapore? No way, my friends and I made a short trip to Malacca again. The last time we went, we didn't get a chance to try the chicken rice so this time round we swear to ourselves we will not miss it again. So so so, we ordered a half chicken and many many rice balls. Ummmmm...wow, it's really yummy, surprisingly, the rice balls taste really good even for someone like Ms M who is never a rice fan, ate more than her usual portion of rice in the meal. Wooooooo...I don't mind eating that again...Shall we, my friends?
