Tian Tan, Lantau’s Big Buddha

The other day, my fella and I checked out one of the coolest things that we’ve done here, thus far.  We headed to Lantau, which is an island of Hong Kong.  I had been looking forward to this day trip for a while.  It did not disappoint.

Stanley, Hong Kong

Maritime Museum

The other day we cruised over to Stanley, which is on the southern part of Hong Kong.  Stanley is one of the higher class areas that I’ve been to.  In life in general.  I’m talking about unreal looking mansions and high rises that you can buy multiple floors to live on.  Multi-million dollar properties in US Dollars.  We clearly didn’t go on some sort of Parade of Homes tour, like my dad and I used to do when I was younger, but I’ve read enough design blogs to know what is the what.  That would have been awesome though.  If there is an Hong Kong version of that, I will be there, living vicariously through the extravagant home decor of others.

Macau, Asia’s Vegas

Last week we took a day trip over to Macau (or Macao)  which apparently nicknamed the “Las Vegas of Asia”.  I’ve never been to Las Vegas.  I’m not sure why people are so surprised when I say that, because I am not much of a gambler.  Then they follow it up with, “Nicole, you would love the food.” Good point.  I do love food.

I love food to the point that I’m going to do a separate post on the food we brought back from Macau, so follow the link to hear about the non-food related highlights of the Macau trip.
