there was a german(?) lady singing ala Lani Misalucha... wow!!

but then the weather is not cooperating with this trip... it was raining the whole day... so i decided to just stay in the Venetian

& played in the Casino
which is really the reason why im excited about this trip hehehehe =)

i played:

SIC BO, meaning dice pair, is an ancient Chinese game of chance played with three dice. The table is elaborately lighted and can sometimes be found in a special section of the casino reserved for Asian games.

It is a very simple game to play, for the object of the game is to either select the individual numbers, or a combination of the numbers, that will appear on the dice after they are shaken and rolled. The betting possibilities and their payoff amounts are depicted on the table layout by showing the faces of the dice in their many combinations. There are single die numbers, two of a kind, three of a kind, or combinations of any two or three of the dice.

info from here

at first i didn't understand the game so i just put my bet (min. bet is HKD50) on the #6, i won almost HKD 900 just by placing HKD50 on #6, i switch table whenever i lost a round, but the more i understood the game... the more i lost ='( pero grabe the people there are not hyper, as in very calm, even though their money is at stake, but i overheard from some mandarin speaking group that there are 2 guys in one of the Baccarat table that hasn't left the casino floor for 2days... grabe!!! jingle lang ang pahinga!!!

& Black Jack

but sadly after more than 6 hours playing... i lost =(

so to ease the pain (drama queen alert!!!) i went to McDonald's for dinner. now now now... pakibaba ang kilay... McDonald's outside Philippines has the best Grilled Chicken Burger (i wonder why they don't have it here & i always have it wherever im in HK or China)

Day 2 HK

Day 2 was meant for Central, TST & Causeway Bay & to help me plan everything out... i need the help of this

hk 360
when youre in hk, its super hard to ask around for directions, i remember i was in Cuaseway bay & it was raining hard, so i have a bit trouble navigating the map, i stop by a boutique & asked for direction to the nearest MTR, the SA told me that she didn't know where it was... HELLO? pano naman di nya alam? everyone uses it no!!! then as i walked, grabe as in 20 steps... MTR na pala.... so this map was super useful for this trip!!!

i saw LIGER through nitrolicious & check out her visit here

this tata baby bags were out of stock & has a long wait list

i think i saw a hk celebrity inside the store with her stylist. if i ever open up my own store, it would probably be like Liger... with super select labels & minimal pieces per collection.

Large size: HKD 3280
Medium size: HKD 2880
Smaller size: HKD 1780

now i did visit the COMME DES GARÇONS

pic via wallpaper
(check out more pix here) VM was super nice, simple, straight to the point, very minimalist... my only complain was the AC... i was drenched when i got in, but their AC was in 16c kaya super brrrr..... + they don't let shoes inside the Fitting Room, tapos the flooring was in cement, as in no wooden tiles kaya double brrrrrr...

but it was raining hard that i didn't take a pic anymore but it's super worth the visit... too bad that they don't have my size for the CDG x Converse shoe that i was looking for.


i stopped by a chinese restaurant in central for lunch & had super spicy shrimp curry & iced milk tea (when i say super spicy... as in naiyak ako sa anghang!!)
