So adorable right?
The mask at Watsons are significantly cheaper than in SG
Serials to die for!

Some of the stuff I bought previously in Zhu Hai -- Oooo La la
(shouldn't have bought the red on at BLUSH. cost me a freaking SGD55. the rest cost only RMB 35 - 55!)

My new summer dress and Staccato shoes!

Yum cha @ Tung Chung. So much food for just the 2 of us!
Arriving at Lo Hu. the transport system is amazing. you can just take a MTR straight to Shenzhen!
A view of Shenzhen
Crossing the river to Shenzhen
Yummy Bamboo Clams. The garlic is oh so delicious

Giant Clams in Salt water (literally Salt water ok!)

The fish is oh-so fresh and the pork chop is excellent too!

The plan today was to go to Tung Chong for the outlets and then to Kwai Fong. But upon reaching Tung Chong, we were disappointed by the pricing. SO EX! Although they were outlets, and were slightly cheaper than the boutiques, after shopping in the States, you seriously dont think these discounts are justified! I mean one has to still pay SGD$40 for a Roxy skirt of SGD70 for a pair of Adidas shoes! In the states, I can get an Armani Tee for US5!!!! So after lunch (DIM SUM SLURP), we changed plans and decided to go Shenzhen instead. it was a long 1.5hour MTR ride. changing from the green line, then the orange line, to the green line, and then the blue line. We finally arrived at Lo Wu where the border was. Amazingly, despite the crowd, it was much more efficient at the custom. Many counters were open and it took us only a few minutes to cross over to Shenzhen! It's so convenient. But i tell u, the number of people simply gave me a headache. In fact, we went into this so-called mall, and was solicited by a young punk. he told us he can get us the best deals..kept asking us to go to this shop to see bags. then when i said i'm not interested in bags, and when he saw me looking at watches, he said he has watches too. More interesting was, his variety of products seems to get more n more when my darling saw some golf equipment, that young punk said he has golf stuff too! Oh come on! So hard sell! I hated it n it was giving me a headache. We went from L1 to L4 and he followed us throughout even though we went into some shops in an attempt to siam from him! But to no avail. finally we went into this shop and sat down and talk business. Ended up buying a bottega and Balenciaga and some Agnes B. Left after that coz time was running out. Din manage to go for foot massage. Sad :-(

Went back via the MTR and sat all the way to Tseun Wan. Took a shuttle back to the apartment and went for dinner at this interesting place in New Territories. It was interesting coz there's a stretch of shops selling fresh live seafood. u buy from there and bring it to the restauarant opposite and pay them for the cooking. It's like going to the market, pay for it, and bring it back home to cook. the food was good, though the place wasn't posh. Wasn't ex too, we had fish, delicious pepper and salt pork chop, giant clams, bamboo clams (the fellow left our lobster swimming in the tank thus we din want it anymore) and we had soup too. i think the bill was about HKD 200+. Strolled back to the apartment. Took approximately 20 mins. Relaxed and got ready for the next day.

The next day was the last day of our trip. Had to strategise well so as not to waste time. I wanted to buy my gucci wallet, thus had to check where it the most convenient place to get it. early that morning (well not tat early actually, @ 930am) we went to Cha chan ting @ Tseun wan to eat. So sad, i din get to eat the Pineapple bun! it was sold out!! gosh! had club sandwiches and that crispy bun again. YUM. Then we went to Kwai Fong where i bought a beautiful Summer dress. Once again, the freaking place wasn't fully open. it was already 1130am! when we were about to leave to catch the train back, at approximately noon, the shops then started opening one by one. My god, what's wrong with these ppl. THat place, I believe, would have more of what i was looking for. Not your typical THIS fashion stuff. Unique korean or things from States. Sweetie bought a gorgeous shirt from Black label. after discount cost around SGD40. With the GSS now on, I wonder if we can do better in Singapore? HMmmmm. We caught the 1230 shuttle bus and went back. at 150pm we were on the airport transfer on our way to catch our flight. Before leaving, I had to have a last bowl of Xu Liu Shan! Eating the collagen made me feel that my skin is more radiant and bouncy!haha. After checking in and clearing customs, within the next 5-10mins, I bought a Gucci wallet that cost HKD2490. Once again, i hope it's cheaper than Singapore. I believe so, since the things there are tax free. At least I save on the stupid GST. At 4pm, we boarded SQ 861 and were on our way back to home sweet home.

When we arrived home, we were shocked by a pungent smell! Our little pond was sooo murky i could barely see my 3 little goldfish! I think my MIL overfed them. sweetie scooped them up and cleaned the tank. Poor darling, it's so hot and we are so tired liaoz, still must do such menial tasks. Anyway, this morning, one of the little goldfish, blackie, didn't make it. It died. :-(
