I realised I haven't been blogging since the end of July, and I have accumulated so much to share with y'all.
So currently, I am enjoying my one-month-long semester break. It's not a super long break, but definitely not a short one either.
For those who haven't already known, I went to Hong Kong for a short vacation with my uni friends from 31st July until 4th August. Basically, it's been a hectic week for me right after I came back from my trip. I went to Mid Valley to meet some clients and collect my birthday door gifts on the 5th. Then, I attended Jay Chou's concert on the 6th. The next day, 7th August, was my birthday!! Then, on the 8th, I hanged out with a friend from Penang, basically drove all day. Then today (9th August), I went to an ATV ride to shoot for my upcoming collab video with Jxhia.
Now as I'm writing down all the events, I realised that I haven't had a proper stay-in day to laze and do nothing at all since I came back from my trip! (Mind you, I'm not complaining at all actually hahaha!)
It just excites me so much when I see my schedule is filled with different activities and events heh!!
So, how was Hong Kong?
Well, traveling with my uni friends was a hell load of fun. We had so much good food in Hong Kong! However, the weather was pretty bad and inconsistent during our journey. It was extremely hot during the first 2 days of our trip. Unfortunately, a signal 3 typhoon hit us when we were in Disneyland and we had no choice but to leave Disneyland in the afternoon. Although we did manage to go on 2 roller coaster rides, we didn't get to catch any shows, parades or firework performance, which was really dejecting! On the other days, the drizzles just go on and on, so we had to carry an umbrella everywhere we went.
It was my 3rd time traveling to Hong Kong, and to be honest, I don't think I will ever revisit this country - at least not in the near future. The main reason is due to the people there: their manners / attitude. Not intending to offend anyone, I feel like they could have been more polite and nicer. My friends (who do not speak Cantonese at all) constantly felt like they got jeered by the locals. There was once when my friend was buying the shuttle bus tickets, but she spoke Mandarin to the lady behind the counter. So as to double confirm whether the shuttle bus is the right one, I asked the lady again in Cantonese. And her response was: Haven't I already told you?? Ask so many times for what!
I was like, we're tourists and we just wanted to double confirm. She could have spoken in a more polite manner?
Not only that, we also had bad experiences with some of the waitresses. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I feel like the way they speak is a little too straightforward and sometimes, sarcastic? But, mind you, I'm not saying that everyone in Hong Kong is rude, I have friends in Hong Kong and they are very helpful and friendly. Perhaps this is really a common thing in Hong Kong and we just had to adapt to their "culture".
Anyway, here are some of the pictures that I have taken in Hong Kong!
