Korean-American actor Daniel Henney visited Macau for a photoshoot with 1st Look Magazine [Kr]. The hunk has not starred in any Korean drama/movie in the past few years but still featured regularly in various Korean magazines.
Back from my Hong Kong & Macau trip on Wednesday night. It’s back to reality after eight days of travel and leisure… with abundance of backlogs to clear.
Hong Kong and Macau were awfully hazy, we only had half a day of blue sky over the trip. Not sure if it’s pollution or simply the weather… probably a combination of both. The temperature was around 15-20°C which suited me well though.
Had lots of good food, 4-5 meals a day… yet amazingly managed to lose two pounds because of the heavy walking. I think I might have covered more distance on foot in the past week than I would normally walk in 5-6 months.
The casino packed Macau was a bit of eye opener, while Hong Kong a shopping heaven with fashion and electronic items aplenty at competitive prices. Other than that it’s usual touristy stuff, nothing spectacular sightseeing wise.
Travel photos coming soon, and regular updates will resume as usual.
[Update] First post of Hong Kong – Wong Tai Sin Temple
Will be leaving to Hong Kong and Macau tonight. AFAIK the hotels I’m staying do not have free internet connection, so this blog is not likely to be updated in the next 8-9 days during the travel.
This will be my second visit to Hong Kong, you can check my 2007 trip if interested. It’s going to be my first visit to Macau – the Las Vegas of the East, or Asia, as some say.
Meanwhile, I’ve added a new featured stories category for this blog, which includes some of the most popular blog posts and a few of my personal favourites. Check that out if you are bored, or if you are pretty new to the site and have missed some of those interesting stuff in the past few months.
Stay tune for my Hong Kong & Macau travelogue, ciao :)
Chinese starlet Isabella Leong gave birth to a baby boy on April 26 in Toronto, Canada.
Isabella, 21, and HKG billionaire Richard Li, 42, started their relationship in March 2008. There were rumours in early 2009 that the actress was pregnant, but nobody took it seriously.
Come to think of it… it’s probably the main reason why her ex-agency EEG had softened over their contract dispute; the company must have realised about the fact (probably told by Richard) and was made to reach the settlement deal in November 2008. Image via Thestandard.
The baby’s name is Ethan Li Changzhi (loose translation). Best wishes.
The largest truffle found in Italy this year was sold for USD200,000 at a charity auction that was held simultaneously in Abu Dhabi, Macau, London and Rome on November 29.
Macau casino mogul Stanley Ho was the highest bidder for the 1.08-kg white truffle. The tycoon was also the highest bidder for last year’s largest truffle, a 1.5-kg piece that fetched a record $330,000.
Truffle is a precious ingredient in Italian and French gourmet for its pungent aroma and taste. White truffle is considered the best truffle; a kilogram of normal size white truffle could cost over $5000.
A total of $284,000 were raised from this auction event, with a few smaller truffles being sold as well. The money will be donated to selected charities in the cities that held the synchronised auction.
