Rit-Carlton OZONE Bar // Best View in Hong Kong (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

After a long day shopping at Sha Tin & TST, Steph and I headed to the well-known OZONE Bar at Ritz-Carlton, for a night of drinks and glam. It was also Steph's birthday that day so we had to get out for some drinks right!

This shot is one of my favorite photos from that night capturing the light and interior design of the bar itself. There were no tables outside and so we had to get a table inside. With tables there is a minimum you must spend, which is HK$1000, which is not bad if you have a group of people.

We ordered the Foie gras with dried figs and port wine. This was really rich in flavour and really delicious. 

Steph ordered the Rose Bubble Martini, which is made from sake, rose tea, lychee, cucumber and ozone bubble air. The drink was light and delicious, perfect to have if you want something refreshing and light.
I ordered the Dragontini, which is made from vodka, raspberry liquer, raspberry, yuzu and basil foam. This was more flavourful and thicker consistency compared to the Rose Bubble Martini. 

We also ordered some mini wagyu beef burgers, rustic french fries with cheese and black truffle and cripsy seaweed calamari. The fries were the best truffle fries I've ever had! I highly recommend ordering them if you're there! 

When we moved to the outer bar area, we could see the beautiful city lights of Hong Kong. This is honestly one of the best views I've seen in Hong Kong and I highly recommend going for a drink, so you can see this amazing view! 

After a good night of eating and drinking, we headed back home and enjoyed the rest of the night chilling and watching TV. 

Only a sleep away until I head off to New Zealand. I'm not sure about the wifi there so I will try to update my blog if I can,otherwise my instagram for sure!
Anyways back to work for me!!!!

Shangri-La High Tea // Kawaii in Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

After shopping in Sha Tin, we made our way down to Tsim Sha Tsui (TST)for some more shopping and lunch. 

We saw this massive Gundam hanging from the ceiling, which was pretty impressive, so I took a photo of it and with it. 

We then made our way to Shangri-La hotel, for high tea. We were craving for some sweets. 

The food from the high tea selection was not bad, but I wouldn't say the best high tea I've ever had. However presentation wise, it's pretty cute~

We were also given complimentary sorbets as they made some for the summer~

Eating the scones and cakes weren't enough to fill us up, so Steph and I ordered a burger and fries to share. We actually started craving burgers when the customer next to us ordered one. The burgers just smell and taste so good! 

Here is our cute little photo from our high-tea-turned-into-burger-eating-session photo.

As we continued to shop around TST, and I took Steph to the side to show her one of the best views of the horizon. The sun was setting and the colours were just beautiful! 

 We took a selfie to remember the view and our trip~

Then we went to a nearby Ghibli shop, which sold many merchandises from Japan! Although, the prices are much more costly than the Japan prices. 

They also have the neko-bus there too~ So took a photo with it! The Ghibli Museum in Japan does have this neko bus too, in the children play pen area though~

Look at these cute figurines! All ghibli characters~

And we cannot forget about Mr. Totoro, himself! Big and cuddly! After looking at all the merchandises at the store, we moved towards the end of the plaza, near the ferry terminal. 

There are open floor shops there which sell various items, such as clothes, merchandises, accessories, bags, stationary, etc. I saw a figurine of Stitch so I took a photo of it~ He is so cute~!
Been super busy today running around for all my last minute purchases and exchange some money for New Zealand. I was planning to film, but so many things had to be done, so I don't think I will be getting any videos up for the next 2-3 weeks. *sighs*
Oh well! I'll try and get some blog posts up instead!!

Back in Hong Kong // Minion craze in Sha Tin (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

As our plane from Japan hit Hong Kong in the evening, we headed back to our place and slept peacefully to gain strength for a next full day in Hong Kong. 

In the morning we did half a day worth of shopping in Sha Tin! Once we arrived at New Town Plaza, there was minion statues everywhere!

I believe the minion movie was soon-to air or was airing so the promotion of the minion movie was quite high!! 

Each statue is the adventures that the minion Kevin, Stewart and Bob went through to find their new leader!

Started off with the cave times and all~ 

Look how excited Kevin is with his fire, whereas Stewart is just like to toast!

This one was pretty cute~~

After all the photo taking and shopping in Sha Tin we moved onto our next destination for lunch. We decided we wanted high tea so I will share the photo's and the experience with your guys in another post! 

Hope you guys enjoyed all the cute photo's of most of the minion statues that I took with~ It was really hard to get these photo's because you'd have to jump in as soon as someone is done and also you might get photo-bombing kids because their parents just push them into the photo
Anyways, only 30 minutes will Chinese New Years and here I am blogging away while drinking a large glass of white wine!!!

Universal Studios Japan (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚* // Last night in Japan Summer 2015 (。•́︿•̀。)

On our final full day in Japan, Steph and I headed off to Universal Studio. We left our place quite early in the morning and we rushed to get the ticketing for the Harry Potter site. It was super hot that day so as we lined up under the sun, we used out hand towels to shelter our faces. 

The first ride we did was the JAWS ride. Can you see the fin!! The tour was in Japanese so if you're unable to understand it is still okay! You can pretty much guess what is happening anyway~

 So many people and new restaurants and cafe around the place. The cafes and restaurants were mostly One Piece themed, I believe there was a movie or something coming out during that time. 

 Can you see the marine sign too! Super busy busy day!

 As we moved along to our next ride, we saw the minions performing! So we had to stop by and watch!! Look how cute they are. 

 As we turned around we saw the minion buns! So both Steph and myself bought one bun each and a drink to refresh ourselves. 

Look how cute this bun is!! Inside is filled with anko (red bean paste!), it was surprising quite nice~ 

Too cute to eat, but we are hungry so bye bye minion buns! 

Next, we headed towards Hogsmead! It definitely is a bit off seeing the snowy scene of Hogsmead in summer. 

And there is the express Hogwart train! There were also performers, re-enacting the scene where two other wizarding schools come to Hogwarts. 

 In summer they also have butter beer, but frozen!! Which actually taste much better than the hot one (because it gets way to sweet!!). 
Steph and I got a frozen butter beer each, in a normal cup, since I didn't really needed the souvenir cup anyway. 

After the performance and butter beer stop, Steph and I quickly moved towards the Hogwarts castle to line up for the main attraction there. During my winter trip I didn't go because the wait was 3 hours long and it was raining too. 

Since we came early we should be able to avoid such a long queue right...NOP! No matter how early you are there will still be a queue, it says 3 hours (again). However, we lined up for about 1hr 45min, which is still a long wait but the ride was quite fun! It is really interesting how the took scenes from the Harry Potter movie and popped it into the ride itself. 

 Next we moved onto the souvenir shops! I found Fluffy the 3-headed dog headpiece! Look how big it is!! It also comes in a mini version too~

My hero~ Spider Man is one of the heroes that my boyfriend likes. So kiss kiss and make him jelly~ (He didn't get jelly at all, infact he wanted to hold Spider Man too!). 

Next I tried on Luffy's sun hat! HELLO!!!! 

For lunch we went to the Pirate restaurant by the younger version of Luffy's brother? Usually theme park foods are not that great, but this was actually really good! Really impressed with the quality and flavors!!!

We literally stayed at Universal Studio's till the end. We caught a glimpse of their night float show. 

Look how pretty this peacock float is!!

 Whose dress are the birds making???

 After the night float parade it was time to head back. Until next time!!!

Once we got back to Shinsaibashi, we went to have dinner at the same place, Isomarusuisan, for dinner again!

First off we ordered ourselves beer and cider! The refreshing feeling from drinking, after a long day is just wonderful. 

 Moving onto the seafood, we ordered clams, squid, salmon sashimi (Steph's favorite!). 

We also got their seafood salad, which has salmon, tuna, squid and seaweed in it!! Super light and refreshing to have during the summer. 

 Got some tofu too! It was smooth and delicious! 

And of course, the famous miso crabs!! Super good good good stuff! I had two of these for myself!!! My cholesterol level just shot up the roof that night! 

After dinner, we went to Don Quijote which is opened 24 hours in Osaka! So of course there was quite a lot of tourist buying like crazy and we shopped until 2am. 

I guess the reason why we shopped so late was because we were also fooling around with the stuff there too! There is so much to see, observe, try and buy at Don Quijote which is why I highly recommend dedicating a few hours to get through all the levels in the shop! 

Once we finished shopping we headed back to our apartment and started the huge task of packing everything! We packed until 4:30am in the morning so we slept in the following day for a bit. We then headed back out to Osaka to do some last minute shopping and visited places we wanted to see before heading to the airport. We then took the plane back to Hong Kong. 
It was an amazing trip I cannot wait to come back again! Hope you guys enjoyed reading all my adventures in Japan during the summer last year! Next up is to finish off my Hong Kong adventures before I blog about my more recent trips!! 

I finished packing most my stuff for New Zealand today, the only things I need to pack away are my chargers, camera & laptop. I'm also super excited for Chinese New Year Eve as I will be spending it with my relatives! YAY!! 
If you do celebrate the Lunar new year how are you guys spending Chinese New Year Eve this year??
