Some of the best memories are made through reading a good book, viewing a majestic work of art but what’s more satisfying is by experiencing it together with your special someone, being in the moment that can be done through traveling, where you can appreciate God’s creation and enjoy a good food together, wrapped by the splendid, wonderful and beauty of God’s incredible works, seen in nature, architectural designs, ruins and many more.
Hi, I’m Ayeen and this is my 1st out of the country travel and tour experience with the love of my life and pleased to share and bring you to Macao with my heart-felt description and story about my quest, so Hop on, sit back and relax as you read along to my epic, fun and exciting venture.
“Our First Flight: Macao, Here We Come!”
Due to excitement, we arrived early at the airport; it was a hectic yet awesome experience. Our flight was even delayed for about an hour. My experience riding an airplane was really scary, my heart keeps beating so fast, gladly Carl, the love of my life was there to comfort me and make me laugh to replace my fears with excitement. He told me “Ayeen, Tingin ka sa labas.” As I look outside the window, I saw a beautiful landscape filled with dazzling lights, I was astonished and mesmerized by it, my heart’s fuss suddenly turned into a fluffy heart-warming feeling. It was so beautiful!.
After 1 hour and 30 minutes, I can see that we’re almost near our destination. The airport in Macao was a breath-taking view, up-above the sky; their airport is surrounded by the sea. Awesome~
As soon as we get-off the plane “Whooo” I felt the cold breeze rushing to me as it touches my skin down to my bones… “What a suiting feeling! So Refreshing… Whaaaaa”
At first, it was bearable, but as the night time approaches you’ll need someone to cuddle, perhaps a jacket to keep you warm, as we went out the airport and wait for the bus to pick us up, I was amazed by their bus; their bus is just like in the K-dramas and movies I’ve watched. I felt like I’m the goblin’s bride and my boyfriend is the goblin from the “Goblin” k-drama. As you ride the bus you’ll be placing coins inside a box-like container before finding your sit, they also have a USB socket where you can plug your phones just in case you’re running out of battery, Cool, Right? I also noticed that their bus stops have site indications which would be very helpful for the tourist you only have 10% chance of getting lost.
As we arrived the apartment we rent where we’ll be staying for 4 days and 3 nights. I was lost in my deep, deep thoughts, “How are going to fit in, hehehehe We are 10 but there’s only 1 room” One of our acquaintances exclaimed “Mamaya na lang natin problemahin, kumain muna tayo. ” We all agreed to her, so we looked for a nice place to eat dinner. This is the most epic part, the first restaurant we got into seems a nice place, they have fresh fish swimming in their aquarium and their dining table has a grill-like structure in the middle, however we can’t understand each other., there’s a language barrier, We even try to act-out what we would like to order but it’s just that they don’t understand English, it’s past 12 midnight already and we’re all starving, so we decided to look for another place to eat, that somehow understands English, gladly, we’ve found one I would like to apologize, I didn’t get the name of the restaurant, due to my hungry stomach.
The place was very welcoming as you enter the restaurant you’ll smell the savory flavors and spices that they use, that will surely stay on your nose, as we start to place our orders. Yes, there are still a bit of complications but not like the first one we went to. We act-out our orders if it’s pork, oink-oink, if it’s beef, moo-moo, or chicken, cock-a-doodle-doo. Good thing, I’ve saved a photo of a pig on my cellphone and pointed it to the corresponding menu to know if it’s pork, However, we don’t have other pictures like the cow and the chicken and we were really hungry, our stomachs were grumbling and we don’t have enough energy
to look for another place, Fortunately, one of our acquaintances got an idea, He asked the crew if they got Wi-Fi and yes they have, “wohoo” Wi-Fi saves us! He used the Google translator and Thank God! After an hour battling with the language barrier We finally placed our orders and they served them correctly, All our struggles where all worth it, the food were all delicious, My favorite dish was the spinach I never thought it could be so good, It was
steamed with their savory flavors and spice, served along with their delectable chicken and tea, “Yum… yum… yum” My tummy has never been that satisfied! After eating a scrumptious dinner, we head-back to our apartment. As we stroll around, We saw the Portuguese inspired apartments, building structures and the hazy lights from their posts which adds up to that magical and relaxing feeling, It was so magical! I get to feel the wind running through my hair, **You make want to grab that opportunity to hold hands with your special someone and get lost in the moment.
