Mommy in Macau: Five Favorites this Week

dscf3176

Every week is different. It feels like everything goes by so fast when it seems like last week was as equally hectic as the current one. With the vacuum cleaner on my left hand and navigating Instagram on the right hand, I have mastered the art of #SuperMOM or getting there at least. Whew!

I want to document everything we’ve done every week so that I can look back at this blog and be reminded of great wonderful memories of our stay in Macau.

  • Discovering Kingship Japanese Restaurant the other night was like discovering microwave for the very first time in history. It’s unbelievable that we haven’t visited this Japanese restaurant in Taipa, when it’s two blocks away from our house. We ordered five items from the menu (Salad, Edamame, Pork Tonkatsu, Salmon California Maki and Prawn cakes). All in huge portions that filled our tummies! Our bill was around MOP $330* for two adults and a toddler. We dusted our plates clean and that’s the best compliment a restaurant could ever receive from a customer. Screen Shot 2016-11-25 at 3.30.11 PM.png
  • I’m a bit of a primitive person when it comes to shopping. I like the feeling of strolling in the shops, feeling the materials and putting it on before I pay. But this week, I braved the unbelievable and shopped online at zalorahk.com. I am utterly in love with my new dress so cheers to my first purchase and to many more. Thank you for my $100 shopping voucher too! DSCF3188 copy.jpg
  • Meeting Eddie McDougall of Discovery Channel’s The Flying Winemaker is a completely different amazing story that happened at Sky 21 Bar in AIA (thanks to livelovemacau.com) but it was the breathtaking view that made me come back again to sample their afternoon tea set with my favorite person in the whole world – Princess Clare. The delightful afternoon tea was around MOP $200- MOP $250. We had the chamomile tea and orange squash juice. My memory is a bit hazy on the exact prize but I’m pretty sure there was a 10% service charge as with all dining outlets in the city. Coming from Dubai with no tax or additional service charges, it still feels pretty strange.
  • I might be late in tasting the famous Porkchop Bun of Macau at Taipa Village and I do regret not discovering it earlier than I should have had. So – I have made a mental note to tell everyone I meet who comes to Macau to definitely have a taste of it!
  • It’s been raining the whole week and I have come to realize that hot soup and warm hugs are the best things about this beautiful weather. It’s strange how I seem to have missed the rain after almost eight years in Dubai. There’s just something very nostalgic about the raindrops and the cool breeze. dscf3164
