Macau 2013, Part 1


It's this time of the year that I love to spend looking back over old holiday photos, reminiscing about the good times ......has it really been a couple of months since I was overseas??

We visited Macau earlier this year for a short day trip, marking my first ever trip overseas anywhere other than Hong Kong. And since it was such a short trip, we woke up crazy early to make the most of our day, (catching up on some sleep on the hour long boat ride) packing as much as we could into the hours we had, starting off some sight seeing at Guia Hill! To save us some walking uphill, we took the super short (and cheap!) cable car ride which takes you part of the way up- the whole ride takes about a minute!

Next stop is the obligatory Ruins of St Pauls.

Queues at Xiaoshanghai Guotie

...but not before we make our first food stop!!

We spy the queue at this little store in an alleyway, so we join to see what the fuss is about. It's a little shanghainese joint specializing mostly in dumplings and pork buns which is perfect as we really want to try Macau pork buns!

Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta Recipe

The uni semester has inevitably started despite my constant complaints that the holidays are way too short! I know, I won't be saying that in the future when I'm working full time, but I'll worry about that when the time comes :)

Meanwhile, I've been struggling to squeeze in some time for baking and blogging (hence the less frequent posts) as my stash of ingredients in the fridge and pantry edge dangerously close to their expiry date. My freezer is pretty much at full capacity now, with things like leftover pasta sheets from this recipe to use........for some later time (when I can get around to it!).
