Sun Lin Faai Lok!

Quinton and I woke up pretty late seeing as we chilled with beers until 6 am, at around 2pm to try and catch Love & Other Drugs at the cinemas but it was such a fail because everything was booked out except the front row, and we really didn't want to let our eyes fry.
My bottle of medicine..

Accidentally, after paying out so many items of clothing from i.t department store, I ended up buying a throwover, high waisted pants and my first clutch. Quinton bought a female beanie but it doesn't look anything feminine. I absolutely love it though, its so adorable!

We went home and I started really feeling sick so I collapsed on Quinton's bed watching TV and took a nap. I felt much better but looked worse, but there's no excuses on New Year's Eve so I quickly got ready and rushed out.
1, 2, 3!

1, 2, 3, 4!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5!

Qton pretending to be drunk (he didn't have to pretend in 3 hours)

We went to Quinton's family friend's gathering! He has the coolest place! It's only the 4th floor but their place is the only one with this huge terrace to chill out in. I drank too much wine and counted down the welcome of 1/1/11!
I love Qton's family!

Gambling time for some of the adults

Few people called me from Australia and I was happy to hear their voices, the texts also made my night! The youthful group of us then moved to Wanchai to go to a Lounge and drink while we waited for LFK to calm down (as we knew it was going to be even more hectic than Christmas)

I'm as red as my lipstick now...

The girls all borrowed my lipstick! Btw, it was a Christmas gift from Dennis so thank you! Even random girls asked where it was from so all night I was like, "CHANEL Passions No. 14!" I should totally be an advertising Ambassador...

We all caught 2 taxis to LFK where there was tonnes of people spilling out on the streets. We stopped by this random bar where a group of inebriated Indians started dancing with us. Quinton bought a round of jelly shots (my first and last time trying) and handed them out to everyone including, the dancing Indians and 'pretty' girls that passed by!

Then there was this boy that locked eyes with me and I was thinking, "WOW he looks so familiar" and I went up to him and said hello and he confirmed with me that he was Kevin my internet friend! HOW CRAZY IS THAT? Like we don't talk that often but we were still like, WOOW WOWWO WOWOWOWW WOWW! Shows how much smaller the world really is.

Quinton and I said goodbye to the rest of the group to go to Beijing club - where Carson, 3#, Gus, Dave and Sio were partying it up! It was $70 entry fee to get inside (probably was a regrettable decision because we weren't there for long)
Biggest bottle I've ever seen!


Quinton wanted me to experience Hong Kong clubbing to show me why he never goes. I totally understand why, the air was suffocating and the ceilings were just a head away from mine, there was no opportunity to dance unless you just wanted to jump up and down. Even then, you probably could only slightly bop. We finally found their table and played games. It was about an hour that Quinton started passing out on the couch so I suggested we moved on home (FOR THE FIRST TIME I ACTUALLY OUTLASTED QUINTON THE GIANT).


We had the coolest taxi driver, who was so hilarious! Quinton told me that I can go to sleep because he had to make sure the taxi driver knew the way home. The taxi driver had to wake us up twice saying, "HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO" and I'd poke Quinton and be like, "QUINTON WAKE UP!" then fall back to sleep. So much for Quinton staying awake for directions...
The taxi driver HAHAHA

As soon as we got home, Quinton slept.

Happy New Year, I hope everyone's heads aren't as hungover as yours truly.

Long Island

So.. Quinton and I failed to wake up to go to Macau to gamble our time away. Instead we decided to catch a ferry to Long Island to adventure around.

Feeling less than 100%

Medicine tastes like crap..

Buying icecream

We first ate McDonalds to fuel our energies, and then I bought Chinese medicine because I caught a cold. It was so hot and bitter! But I did get to eat this Haw Candy that I ate as a child!
Stare at this closely.. misprinted and trippy right?

We caught the ferry and I felt sea sick so I slept for the entire hour on Quinton, killing his left arm. We arrived at Long Island and walked around for a while, eating a lot of snacks!

So Sick Lane

Grumpy Bum!

We then saw this tricycle with a shade tent thing where one person rides and the other sits and I begged Quinton to hire that one out instead of hiring out our individual bikes. He knew that that meant that he would be riding while I enjoyed the breeze most of the time but luckily I convinced him :)

Nice position..

Now strike a pose!

It was pretty scary at first but then it was a lot of fun! I had a personal chauffeur on the island and we rode towards Cheung Po Tsai Cave where this pirate once hid himself and treasure. We parked the bike and walked up the steep hill enjoying the views and also detouring sometimes to find better mountain top scenery.

Baby Titanic

We finally got to the cave and had no idea that we had to squeeze through tiny holes. Pirates must have been so tiny back in the days!

We then cruised around again, this time Quinton sitting while I lugged his fat bum back to the main area! Quinton then took over because I am obviously unfit and we rode to the beach, enjoyed the sea spray in our faces and returned the bike.

Looks like a dirty lense.. but its the sea spray!

This is the most lame picture ever, we both had no idea that we did the same pose, isn't that hilarious!?

Oh no the jumper swallowed me!

Hands up!

We then explored the night market, buying my childhood bubbles and sitting on a side bench while we made our head spins trying to make the biggest bubble while trying not to breathe in the toxic chemicals of the bubble. I won, of course!

Hehe I put saliva in it on purpose...

Saliva ball

We popped into this cafe that advertised jelly beer because we had half hour to waste before the ferry left, and we were totally pumped to try what jelly beer would be like - and to our disappointment it was pretty much just half frozen beer. L A M E !

I bought a carved sea shell necklace and we headed back to Hong Kong! We went to go have Indian and as we entered the vicinity where many Indian restaurants were gathered, Quinton got bombarded by 8 men handing him brochures convincing him to follow them to the 'best' one!

We had rogan josh, naan and tandoori chicken and the Indian man asked if I was half Indian half Chinese. I was like LOL NO!

There was also this other man that always looked at me and kept giving me the nod and smiling, and when I asked for the bill he decided to move from the kitchen and instead of the waiters, come give me the bill with the hugest, sleaziest grin on his face. Quinton couldn't stop laughing, and I couldn't stop thinking, "FML"
I look so weak..

Compared to Quinton's strike

We then made a quick stop to Kimberley Plaza so Quinton can say hello to friends then we caught the bus home. I got really lazy so Quinton piggy backed me while we walked and waited for a taxi. Due to my big bottom being in the way, we missed two taxis but got the third.

Now we're just chilling with Tsing Tao beers, pocky and I'm blogging :)
