GOODBYE 2010


A couple of days and we will witness the new year inshallah. Big changes Happened in Last year the good and the Bad. No one can ever have a whole year of perfection but weeall have the responsibility to make the choice for our  years to shine with the good memories or the bad ones even if good things are less still its up to U .

when It comes to where I've been el7mdella I've been to many Places. some were planned to have fun others to have sometime away :

1-March 2010: 3omra

7-December 2010: 3omra again ;)

this goes to where I've been each place has its memories , el7mdela didn't regret going to any.

What Idid? enjoyed every Beautiful moment that passes by me.
I laugh like I have no worries or pain I love the way that I will lose who I love just to make sure they know how much I love them .Even the saddest moments had me for a long time during this year bs el7mdela bfthl allah I'm always Back no matter what I have much things to appreciate in my Life, We all do ! HOPE is ur Rope never let go.

look at the things eli etshofoon enha lazm tkoon 3ndekum by default ! mthl elbeet el akel el sherb elahal o elra7a o el3afia o el7oriya ! those things make me fight for what I want o what I am .I did all the things that I wish to do at the right place and the right moment. I always do my best to get what I want with the thought that what meant to happen will happen so one day when I look back I'll be always proud of what I Did.

Learn..... this word reflects  what we go through everyday every moment by living so when it comes to what I've learned, by experiences you learn the good and the bad ;)

I've Learned that I should miss the People I love... miss them everyday and live with it .

I've learned that it is never to late for anything ! lama 7a6eet tqweemi ;P

I've learned ena ( ma a9abak ma kan li yokh6eok o ma akh6a'ak ma kana li yo9ebok). 7a6a hl klaam 3yooniii min aq3ad leen ard anam ! it gives me power to go on & survive ;)

I've learned to never ever give up NEVER EVER! because one day I will look back & I don't want to say the Word What If ! so do whatever you can do to make things right o get what u desire b3d el etikaal 3la allah.

I've learned to seize the moment and take chances & experience new food new cultures new things to do !

I've learned that no body is worth my tears, and the one who is won't make me cry.

I've learned that Being Happy Doesn't mean everything is perfect .NO ! it means that U decided to see Beyond Imperfections.

I've learned that I didn't know how strong I am until being strong is the Only choice I have !

I've learned to say I Love U to all the ppl that I love in my life whenever I feel like saying it I don't keep it I say it with a big Hug ;) They Deserve to know !

Much Much more waaayed t3alamt stuff

But I will Never forget the ppl who cause me pain and hurt I will never forget what I got in exchange from them. A big Thank you to them ! I realized
that many ppl deserve their place in my heart. Keep the ppl who will make your heart go on and get rid of those who cause you pain. Be with the one who U deserve and deserves U.

you will be Always on My Mind for those who made their choices
to leave from my life and those who left without a choice.

When I look back I can find that there is much of What I love !

Macau to Hong kong a Bumpy Ride !

The Vomit Bag on Board :P but we didn't use it :P

  It was different and new for me !moving from a place to a place by a Ferry! making the decision while I was plannning the the trip was hard !

Ididn't know what kind of Ferry I'm going to book ! all I know is that I have to move from Macau to Hong Kong by a Ferry. Is it safe ? well I depended on travelers opinions from the internet on which Ferry company should we take. I made my options but I didnt book from here, Since I found out that ferries leave every 15 min starting from 7am to 7pm daily from Macau to Hong Kong & Vice Versa.

The Venetian Macau (our Hotel) were kind enough to have free bus trasportation to New World First Ferry Services. Its a couple of minutes away from the hotel. But you should put in in mind that Hong Kong  consists of two Islands, so remember when you book your ticket you should know in which part are you staying.

That's My ticket from Macau To Kowloon(Hong Kong).



Some Information you need to know :

- Regarding the reservation, once I arrived to our hotel in Macau I asked if I should book our tickets from now(the moment of the arrival) since we were planning to leave to Hong Kong on a weekend so the tickets might be sold out. Well, It turns that its ok , we left the hotel with no concern because we can get on board of any ferry we want since there is one leaving to Hong Kong every 15 min. we arrived at the Ferry Terminal then we booked the next one that is leaving.

- Its approximately one hour ride from Macau to Hong Kong. What's funny is that their Ferry terminal is like an airport :P you should get your passports stamped.

-The ticket is 155HKD ( 6KD) per person .
- They Charge for the big luggages I dont remember how much but I think  20HKD. the ticket and the luggage extra charge was very resonable.

- Its a bumpy Ride :P that was in april 2009 elb7ar kan eshway mooy fa be careful sea sick ppl ;) everybody around were vomitting bs el7mdela the 4 of us were enjoying o el ferry etroo7 fooq o t7t ;)

- Help your self ! it means mako a7ad esheel lejna6! u r responsible for your luggages you take them in the ferry and out of the ferry so make sure to limit your carry on's ;) wraakum kaad o tyerer jnaa6 ;P

- the Ferry was a high class one ;) leather purple chairs and clean.
- The Link to the Ferry Company http://www.nwff.com.hk/.

Enjoying el Scene eli kela thbaaab o gheem ;)

Macau....Baby Its The Future Las Vegas -part 2

  
The Wynn Hotel in Macau ! The same as the One in Vegas


Are you considering Macau your next destination? then there is many places not to miss.

First you have to check my previous post, it will tell you where to stay in Macau and how to get to Macau :) seems like there is a lot to discover.
 I stayed there for three nights and I think it was enough.

Besides attending the spectacular Cirque Du Soliel show Zaia(Check my previous Post). We had to leave the shopping for a while and see what's out there:) the weather in April 2009 was cloudy and little rainy but it was ok with cool breeze. It’s the perfect weather to tour around for me.
And one more thing to consider before going there Macau is still under construction but you will see once you are there that Macau is going to a bright future!

Now What to do:

1- Macau Fisherman's Wharf:



  If you stay at The Venetian Macau Hotel you will get a free drop off to many places! Like for example if you want to visit the Fisherman's Wharf ask the reception for the free bus that will take you to The Sands Hotel. Once you are there the Fisherman's Wharf is gonna be across the street! So save some money:).
At Fisherman's Wharf you can enjoy Shopping, dining & some fun , just check it out   http://www.fishermanswharf.com.mo/eng/ 

2- Museums: from their Guide Book, They have many museums for museums lovers;) I didn't have the chance to visit any but if you are intrested you can visit TheMaritime Museumwhich is like a ship moored at the entrance of the inner Harbour.Also The Museum of Macau that has been built inside the foundation of the Monte Fort.

3- The Historic Centre of Macau: Just ask the taxi to take you there you will love it! if you like discovering churches and Historic places .

4-Senado Square: Macau's Main Square: Go there at night.


Mac Macau ;P


The FREE Buses from The Ventian Hotel Macau ! that takes you to some places

Sands Hotel Macau



Fisherman's Wharf Macau


Free Preformance show in  hotel ;) just go around hotels and discover


The Wynn Macau it has a shopping Center inside with worldwide brands ! Don't miss it


I relized that I didn't see a lot in Macau ! All I did is Shopping but it was worth it :P  for sure I'll go there again.However, remember when you are there you have to walk and discover the place around its the best thing to do which will help you discover new things,specially inside hotels visit all the famous hotels have a coffee at their cafe or wonder in the lobby.

From Macau To Hong Kong soon By a Ferry it was a trip hard to forget LOOL that's what's coming up next inshallah :) 7aq elnas eli y7boon eloya o el Adventure ;)
