    • Heh! Well, I lost a lot of photos coz I can’t seem to find my dSLR card but this is the abridged version of what happened. πŸ˜‰

  1. Oh dear. You get sea sick? Any possibility of sitting in the open? That way, you will not get sea sick…but if it’s here in Sarawak on a fine day and the journey is long, you’ll end up looking like a cooked lobster – red, sunbuirnt. LOL!!!

    • I usually don’t get sea sick, but for some reason I felt like throwing up that day.

      I guess it’s too much sun. It was very hot when we went. πŸ™‚

      The ferry was quite fast though. πŸ˜€

    • Well, close enough for government work. πŸ˜‰

      Macau is really nice coz of the cultural heritage mix and history. I’ll do a proper post on it soon, this is just a lark I did about the thing I now dismiss as the “Macau affair” but which I’m still paying for now. T_T

  2. we pretty did the same thing. except that i didn’t puke! first thing i did when i was on board, armed with the paper bag and dozed off. haha it works. for me and my friend! phew

    • I usually don’t puke too. I don’t know what was wrong with me that day.

      I couldn’t eat the pork chop buns coz I had nausea from heatstroke. It got better though.

      Yeah, it’s good that they provide sick bags eh? πŸ˜€

  3. HB, guess the ferry ride was kind of rough on you. Some time I felt seasick riding the ferry to east bay in San Francisco depend on the weather. Pork chop bun is good and I did enjoy African chicken well known in Macau.

    • Nope, I’m fine with the sea. *shows sea legs

      I even go deep sea fishing (but always come back with horrible sunburns after a couple of days out at sea).

      However, I was really sick that day, not sure why. Yup, the pork chop bun is good eh. It cheered me up somewhat after that trip to the casino. πŸ™‚

    • Haha! I’m going to quit gambling. I’m serious. I won’t step into a casino and bet anymore.

      Macau was my last casino sojourn. Gotta keep the savings up for important stuff in life. πŸ˜€
