Your Ideal 5D4N Itinerary To Hong Kong & Macau

– Day 1 –

The Venetian Macao Main Lobby

The Venetian Macao Main Lobby

Earlier this year, my family and I went to Macau and Hong Kong for 5 days 4 nights. On the first day, we went directly to Macau for a night at The Venetian Macao. It is better for you to travel to Macau first before exploring Hong Kong as you tend to buy more stuff in Hong Kong. It will be a hassle if you move about with a full luggage.

I’m surprised! Quite a lot of people everywhere in the hotel. Couldn’t get a clear shot of the lobby. 

Love my boots from Ecco. Pretty! Felt so shag cause not only we had to travel from Singapore to Hong Kong, we still had to take a ferry to Macau.

The Venetian Macao

The Venetian Macao

‘Xiao’ grand! 

A family shot.  I really liked the interior of the lift. HAHAHA LOL

The Venetian Macao Hotel Room

The Venetian Macao Hotel Room

The room was really spacious and cozy! Very comfortable.

The Venetian Macao Hotel Room

 The Venetian Macao Resort is quite well-known for their lavish Italian interior design. Since you are in Macau, why choose another hotel?

There was even a separate dressing table! I remembered my sister assumed that I enjoy sitting there and dry my hair because she saw me doing it. LOL

Love the details of the marble countertop. 

We quickly headed out to Senado Square to explore the city. We took the bus and was surprisingly easy to navigate there. Transportation was affordable too!

Senado Square

Senado Square

As usual, there were a lot of tourists. 

European-styled buildings and the beautiful pathway.

We got to explore the Macau’s historical and cultural heritage as there were many well-preserved old buildings there.

Tai Lei Loi Kei - Macau Pork Chop

大利来记猪扒包 Tai Lei Loi Kei – Macau Pork Chop Bun

When I was in Macau, I know I got to try out Tai Lei Loi Kei’s Famous Macau Pork Chop Bun 大利来记猪扒包 . When you walk along Senado Square, there is a signage that will lead you to a small alley to the shop. A burger cost me almost SGD8, not cheap but I still got to try it out.

 猪扒菠萝包 Macau Pork Chop Bo Luo Bun

猪扒菠萝包 Macau Pork Chop Bo Luo Bun

The portion of the meat was quite huge, at least for me! I love Bo Luo Bun (Polo or Pineapple Bread), so I ordered Bo Luo Bun 猪扒菠萝包 instead of the original one. Nevertheless, it was good! The sweetness comes from the bun complements well with the savory pork chop.

大三巴牌坊 Ruins of St. Paul's

大三巴牌坊 Ruins of St. Paul’s

Ruins of St Paul 大三巴牌坊 is one of Macau’s best landmarks though it was left nothing but just a facade of the church.

We decided to rest while before heading to Street of Happiness.

Largo do Senado is Rua da Felicidade (Street of Happiness)

Largo do Senado is Rua da Felicidade (Street of Happiness)

We roamed around the Macau and decided to have our dinner along the Street of Happiness. It was a quick 10-minute walk from Senado Square. There, you could find traditional Chinese-style buildings. This area was used to be a red-light district for gambling and opium smoking until the late 1940s. Having said that, the street was still full of vibrant red, unlike any other streets in Macau.

添發碗仔翅美食

添發碗仔翅美食

I was told that this shark fin eatery (添發碗仔翅美食) is very popular, often with long queues! We chop-chop ran in when we saw there were tables available. The boss promptly took our orders just as we set.

Shark Fin Soup

Shark Fin Soup

 There was shark fin in it, though I feel that they could give a little more. Despite that, the soup was flavorful and delicious. You gotta try this when you go to Macau, ya!

The Venetian Macao Shopping Mall - Sands Shoppes

The Venetian Macao Shopping Mall – Sands Shoppes

It was getting late so we head back to Sands Shoppes to shop around. The shopping mall, which is located inside the hotel is like a small town itself. With lots of high-end shops and restaurants for you to check it out.

– Day 2 –

Walkway Travelator from The Venetian to Old Taipa Village

Walkway Travelator from The Venetian to Old Taipa Village

On the second day, we decided to visit Old Taipa Village. Getting there from The Venetian was easy. Just get out from The Venetian’s West Lobby and walk towards the Galaxy. Just before you cross the street, you will see a long linkway travelator that will take you directly to the Old Taipa Village.

Old Taipa Village

Old Taipa Village

It was a nice neighbourhood environment. Very relaxing, and quiet. We wandered around and there were many small shops and eat houses.

Old Taipa Village

Cafe Vong Kei at Old Taipa Village

Cafe Vong Kei at Old Taipa Village

We settled ourselves into a small eatery named Cafe Vong Kei for breakfast. It was crowded, full of locals coming in for their usual morning meals.

Cafe Vong Kei

Cafe Vong Kei

It was really small and squeezy! Yet, I really like the atmosphere, partly due to the fact that the place was clean and well-maintained.

Cafe Vong Kei Menu

Cafe Vong Kei Menu

 Menus in Macau and Hong Kong are usually written only in Traditional Chinese. Even I myself can’t understand and I had trouble ordering. But, luckily my sister could as she used to read Taiwanese edition of Japanese comics. So do bear that in mind when travelling there!

Polo Bun and Coffee at Cafe Vong Kei

Polo Bun and Coffee at Cafe Vong Kei

As you guys know by now, I am a big fan of Bo Luo Bun (Polo or Pineapple Bread). The lady sliced the bun into half horizontally, then sandwiched with a big slab of salted butter. Lovely!

Polo Bun at Cafe Vong Kei

Polo Bun at Cafe Vong Kei

This is the kind of breakfast I would look forward to every morning. Simple and buttery. Yum!

I feel that their Bo Luo Bun is totally different than you would get in Singapore. Ours lack flavors and is often too sweet. Their Bo Luo Bun has a right amount of sweetness to it and is very buttery.

公仔面 Instant Noodles at Cafe Vong Kei

公仔面 Instant Noodles at Cafe Vong Kei

Instant Noodles 公仔面, their usual breakfast.

Main Street at Old Taipa Village

Main Street at Old Taipa Village

After our breakfast, we got to tour around Old Taipa Village. You do get that vintage feel around that area. And I felt more relaxing walking around there as compared to just casinos and hotels.

It is also a good place for you to get your souvenir! 

Outside of The Venetian Macao

After we finished exploring around the village, we head back to our hotel resort for some photo shots before checking out to depart to our next destination, Hong Kong.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong

We reached the mainland of Hong Kong in the late afternoon. It was really easy to navigate there as our hotel was just beside the port. Nevertheless, it was also very easy to take their MTR to move about.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong

Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon

Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon

Since we stayed in Jordan, we decided to roam around Temple Street as it was located just nearby. Temple Street is known for their night market. I personally feel that you only need to visit either one of them (Temple Street or Women’s Street) as both streets sell almost the same things. 

Another thing you should take note is their soaring high prices! A counterfeit shoe will cost you more than SGD60. Unless you really want, I don’t recommend you to get anything there.

Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon

Temple Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon

麥奀雲吞麵世家 Mak Noodles

麥奀雲吞麵世家 Mak Noodles

We decided to have Wonton Mee for dinner. Also located in Jordan, Mak Noodles (麥奀雲吞麵世家) are famous for their shrimp-only wontons as compared to meat and freshly made duck-egg noodles.

麥奀雲吞麵世家 Mak Noodles

麥奀雲吞麵世家 Mak Noodles

People go Hong Kong to have Wonton Noodles in soup. So be sure to order that! 

– Day 3 –

Hung Lee restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui

Hung Lee restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui

We head off to Hung lee Restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui, about 15 minutes walk from out hotel. Their congee has a very sticky and smooth texture, which was why my father was desperately trying to bring us here back as he came here the other time. It’s considered one of the best congee in town.

Congee Hung Lee restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui

Congee Hung Lee restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui

Congee for breakfast, what’s better? Remember to order it with 油条 (Fried Dough)!

Prawn Chee Cheong Fun Hung Lee restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui

Prawn Chee Cheong Fun Hung Lee restaurant at Tsim Sha Tsui

I also ordered Prawn Chee Cheong Fun. It was okay, nothing special. They have a wide range of selection on their menu, so you could try other stuff too!

Do wary on the final bill as I was charged more! I’m not sure if they were being dishonest or just pure carelessness.

Peak Tram

Peak Tram

After breakfast, we travelled down to MTR Central station to take the Peak Tram. The Tram is one of the unique emblems of Hong Kong. You got to visit when you’re here.

The Peak Tram

The Peak Tram

You do have to queue to take the tram. But, it was fairly quick.

The Peak Galleria

The Peak Galleria

You will be transit to The Peak Galleria upon arriving. There are lots of restaurants you could find there. Other than that, you could have a panoramic view across the Hong Kong at their Sky Terrace.  However, I couldn’t get a good shot of the view as it was foggy.

Tai Cheong Bakery Egg Tart

Tai Cheong Bakery Egg Tart

I was craving for Egg Tart and got myself with a Tai Cheong Bakery Egg Tart.

Mount Austin Road

Mount Austin Road

We took a nature walk along Mount Austin Road. Just beside The Peak Galleria, it was quite delightful to stroll around. As you can see what I’m saying, it was quite foggy.

Mount Austin Road

Mysterious background, uh!

Wellington Street

Thereafter, we went to Wellington Street for our lunch.

蓮香樓 Lin Heung Tea House

蓮香樓 Lin Heung Tea House

You must expect traditional Dim Sum with time-honoured Tea House experience when dining at 蓮香樓 Lin Heung Tea House! Waiters that will always be too busy to entertain you, the old-style dim sum on a trolley and loud environment.

We were intimidated as we did not know how to and what to order. Luckily, there was an old uncle who was nice enough to guide us along. Certainly feels very Hong Kongese here!

蓮香樓 Lin Heung Tea House Dim Sum

蓮香樓 Lin Heung Tea House Dim Sum

Very traditional array of dim sum. They have great brewed soup with rice here. Do try them out!

 

Hong Kong

Hong Kong

For the rest of the day, we just shopped around the streets. 

Ladies' Market

Ladies’ Market

We went to Ladies’ Market which sells almost the same things as Temple Street. Honestly, nothing excites me here.

新之城 Mong Kok New Town Mall

新之城 Mong Kok New Town Mall

新之城 Mong Kok New Town Mall is like Hong Kong’s version of Singapore’s Bugis Street. Great for ladies to shop there! For guys, don’t bother going if you are looking for clothes here. I have walked the whole mall and there was only 1 store that sells our clothes.

 We went into a random eatery for dinner. I couldn’t remember what store was it it wasn’t fabulous anyway.

7-11 at Hong Kong

7-11 at Hong Kong

Subsequently, my sister and I had some quick snacks at 7-11.

Curry Fish Balls

Curry Fish Balls

Their curry Fish Balls is way different from us. Smaller in size and more bouncy as compared to the balls you find in Singapore. I also like the fact that their gravy was thicker. Though, it was quite salty.

Hui Lau Shan

Hui Lau Shan

We were also feeling for something sweet so we decided to visit Hui Lau Shan, Hong Kong’s Chinese Dessert. There are multiple stores in Hong Kong so you could try it out almost everywhere there!

Mango Dessert Hui Lau Shan

Mango Dessert Hui Lau Shan

Not as good as raved! The ice cream was a little too icy. Though I like the  glutinous rice balls, I wished it would be slightly softer. But, I enjoyed the pureed mango juice.

Hong Kong

– Day 4 –

Australia Dairy Company 澳洲牛奶公司

French ToastAustralia Dairy Company 澳洲牛奶公司

What’s for breakfast on the third day? We took a trip down to Australia Dairy Company 澳洲牛奶公司 to try out their famous scrambled eggs and french toast.

My first time having french toast with golden syrup. What a pleasant combination!

Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled Eggs Australia Dairy Company 澳洲牛奶公司

Their scrambled eggs were really well made! I love that it was not too creamy, yet not too rubbery and dry.

It is often packed full with people and service ain’t that good! We can’t really decide what we want as we can’t really read well and was given a black face by the waiter. Then, I was knocked by them when walking towards the exit after the meal as they were rushing back and forth. Yeap, terrible! 

Citygate Outlets

Citygate Outlets

Next, we dropped by Citygate Outlets to shop and browse around. My parents ain’t really interested so we quickly depart to our next venue

Bus Stop to

Bus Stop to Big Buddha

We took the bus to Big Buddha. I was told by my sister that it is a more affordable way to go there.

Big Buddha

Big Buddha

I was really excited to see the large Buddha statue. But, the weather was really misty and I could not catch a good view.

Big Buddha

Big Buddha

Nevertheless, you should still visit Big Buddha to take a look. (It was just the period I went that was foggy)

Big Buddha

You do have to climb 288 steps to get to the top.

Afterwards, we wandered around the area and had our vegetarian lunch there.

– Day 5 –

Tao Heung

Tao Heung

It was our last day and our flight back to Singapore was scheduled in the evening. We decided to have our dim sum breakfast here in Tao Heung. It was located in Tsim Sha Tsui, near my hotel so we just walked.

Tao Heung

Tao Heung

One of the more affordable dim sum restaurant I had in Hong Kong. Yet, they are still one of the most I had.

Tao Heung

Their breakfast menu is even more pocket-friendly. Great place to check it out. Look at their Siew Mai, one whole prawn on the top as a garnish!

Perfect Fluffy Pancakes

Pancakes

Delightful light and fluffy Pancakes. So perfect!

Pancakes

This recipe is a little unconventional. I separated egg yolk and egg white and whisked the egg white with sugar until stiff peaks. This actually helps the pancakes to be light and fluffy.Pancakes

Picture perfect. I actually like to go with a slab of Butter,  drizzle of Maple Syrup, some Berries and a dollop of Greek Yogurt. But, in this case, I did not use any Greek Yogurt for photoshoot wise.

Flavour Flings Cafe @ Hougang Ave 1

Flavour Flings

Flavour Flings

Looking for a neighbourhood cafe around your area? Flavour Flings Cafe is well-known for their Salted Egg Yolk Croissants and is also halal certified. Conveniently located in Hougang Avenue 1, Flavor Flings is back with a new special menu! 

Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta

Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta

Firstly, we got to try Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta. A delicious Garlic Bruschetta infused with White Truffle oil, top it off with Mushroom Caviar, Tomato Cubes, Parmesan Cheese and Spring Onions. Truffle lovers will sure to find this satisfying as the flavor is very strong and aromatic! I find that the Bruschetta was very well made. Highly recommended to try it out!

Salted Egg Yolk Fries

Salted Egg Yolk Fries

For some lovely bites, we got their Salted Egg Yolk Fries. Drizzled with their in-house Salted Egg Yolk Sauce, the fries were also topped with their fragrant Buttered Cereals. I wasn’t expecting the buttery cereals, but it goes really well with the sauce! It reminds me of Cereal Butter Prawns.

Fling's Noodles V.2.0

Fling’s Noodles V.2.0

Next up, Fling’s Noodles Version 2.0. They have updated their signature Fling’s Noodle. Instead of Spaghetti, they use Fettuccine. Which, I prefer as the garlicky White Cream that is also infused with White Truffle Oil can now better cling onto the pasta. Rich and creamy. Yum! 

Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae

Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae

As for dessert, we got to try out Vanilla and Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream Sundae. I find that the Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream was a little icy. Yet, the sweet-scented Vanilla Ice Cream was palatable.

Creme Brulee

Lastly, it was one of my favorite, Creme Brulee. I love the fact that Flavour Flings had used a wider, shorter ramekins instead of the taller and smaller ones. This mean that there will be more caramelized sugar topping as the surface area will be larger! The cold custard cream isn’t too jelat and goes really well with the warm sweet caramelized sugar.

All in all, I really enjoyed being there in Flavour Flings. The ambiance was warm and cozy. Food was decent and satisfying. The place will be great for an impromptu casual meet-up with family and friends as it is around my around, Hougang/Kovan.

If you are looking for a café that has no GST and no service charge. Caffe Pralet is the place to go. Caffe Pralet has a history of 10 years here in Eng Hoon Street. The founder Julie Koh, opened a baking school and café here 10 years ago to showcase the culinary side of her.

Today, they have revamped their menu and has a wide range of fusion food.

Hei Bi Aglio Olio

Hei Bi Aglio Olio

I got to try out their Hei Bi Aglio Olio. If you don’t know what Hei Bi is, it’s basically dried small shrimps that have a very pungent smell to it. It was my first time trying out such an exotic combination, certainly very original. Hei Bi-lovers will sure to be pleased!

Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce

Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce

I love their Chicken Chop with Satay Sauce. I feel that the idea of putting them together is brilliant. The satay sauce was indo-inspired. Therefore, creamy and full of flavour. Yet, it doesn’t overpower the whole dish as it comes with a refreshing cucumber ah-cha and sour cream.

Paprika Fries

Paprika Fries

Be sure to also try out their Paprika Fries! I was told by the Head Chef that they had actually made their own secret blend of seasonings. Delish!

CaffePralet Cakes

CaffePralet Cakes

I was quite astonished that they have a wide selection of cakes and pastry. Everything is made in-house from the baking school beside the café. I got to try out their Gula Melaka Cake, Chocolate Cake, and Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

Though I was told that the Red Velvet Cake uses Beet Root, I personally feel that it was a little dry and can be further improved. Nevertheless, the other cakes were very satisfying and delectable.

Chocolate Cake and Gula Melaka Cake

Chocolate Cake and Gula Melaka Cake

The rich layered Chocolate Cake comes with a chocolate sponge, followed by mousse and hazelnut praline, finishing off with a chocolate glaze and gold flakes. I love the crunch of the hazelnut praline with the deep rich chocolate mousse. Total indulgence.

Gula Melaka Cake

Gula Melaka Cake

Coconut-lovers, you should totally try out their Gula Melaka Cake. It got to be my favourite. The layered cake comes with toasted sweet coconut at the bottom, Gula Melaka-flavoured cheese mousse and Pandan sponge. Brings me back to the days where my mum got me Oneh-Oneh every week when I was young.

First Gavia Booth @ SUTD 2016

It was my first Gavia booth. Nevertheless, everything went well. I’m happy that the response turned out well and everything was sold out at the end of the event.

Gavia Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins, Banana Chocolate Muffins, and Orange Cranberry Almond Muffins. These are some of my favorite sugar-free recipes. A lovely lady bought a Lemon Blueberry Muffins to try and instantly love it! She ordered 40 muffins in one goal. 

To receive such support from people like her, I really appreciate it. 

Apple Cakes

I’m really happy that I could finally use some of my cake stands.

Honestly, it was hard work, I didn’t expect working to be so hard at all. During that period, I actually did not get to sleep well at all. Other than juggling my usual errands, I had to pick up extra ingredients for the booth, transport stuff, mass baking, prepare packagings, and cleaning up here and there.

I had to end my end around 3 AM and get up at 6 AM to prepare to get ready to the event venue.  The event started at 8 AM and all the way till 6 PM. Which I have to pack and clean up afterward. There will be always be walking by asking for more information etc, I recalled that I did not get have my lunch all the way until 4 PM. I got home around 8 PM, showered and rest. Then get ready for the following day till 3 AM again. 

Luckily, it was only a 2-day event. Yet, I am happy that I participated because more people can know about Gavia and I can gain experience from it. Not only that, I met many new friends!
