Macau, China - 18th December 2007

By: tarepanda

Today we visited a tourist attraction called Fisherman's Wharf.  Its various sections are modeled after different cities, so it felt like we were on a mini tour of the world.

Behind us is the jetfoil we took to come to Macau.


Now we really feel like we are in China!


And now we are in Potala Palace in Tibet!


We have crossed the continent!


And here we are in New Orleans!

Macau, China - 19th December 2007

By: tarepanda

Today we went to a place called Venetian.  It's the largest casino and resort in the world and just opened a few months ago.  The decorations looks really grand and extravagant.


What a beautiful place it is!  We are too young to gamble but we walked around their indoor plaza.



They even have canals and a boat called gondola inside the building.  The steerman sings as the gondola floats down the canal.  The ceiling is painted to look like the sky.

Hong Kong, China - 20th December 2007

By: tarepanda

Wow it was a fun trip in Macau but now we are back in Hong Kong.  We are very excited when we find a box waiting for us.  I think I can recognize the voices.

"Hey is that SaruMaru?" I ask.

"Hurry up and open the box!" screams someone and when we finally get it opened, a really wild cat jumps out at us and really startles MaraJoy.  Turns out it's Budd.


We are really happy that all of us gather together.

Hong Kong, China - 23rd December 2007

By: tarepanda

I am so excited today we get to see more of Hong Kong. 

We take the newcomers on a walk on the promenade by the harbour.  We can see the buildings on Hong Kong island.


We are now on Avenue of Stars.


A statue of Bruce Lee.


We find the handprint for John Woo, the movie director.


We decide to take a group picture to celebrate our get together.

Hong Kong, China - 25th December 2007

By: tarepanda

Today we visited a Buddhist nunnery with Tarepanda and her mom.  Her mom was worried that the nunnery may be closed for the holiday but Tarepanda said that she can't imagine a Buddhist temple closing for a Christian holiday.  Indeed it was not.  :D

While the Chilan Nunnery is a relatively new building, it used architectural technique from the Tang Dynasty, around the 7th century.  It is an all wooden structure built without using one nail.  As Tang Dynasty is the period with heavy cultural exchange between China and Japan, this style of architecture is commonly found in Japanese Zen Buddhism temples.

This is the entrance (West Gate).



A watermill useful for grinding flour, though they are not really using it now.



This is a really beautiful lake with a lot of koi fishes in it.

Miami, Florida, USA - 8th January 2008

By: tarepanda

Well, we are back in Miami, with its nice, warm weather.  Today we go to a U-Pick field. 


Look!  A big scarecrow!


I am determined to help Tarepanda pick the best tomato.


Now on to some grape tomatoes for our salad.


After picking enough tomatoes, we go on to pick some strawberries. 


This one looks delicious!!  Well it is indeed nice and juicy!


Wow, little Mister_Right finds a whole bunch hiding under the leaves!

Look how many tomatoes we pick!


And the red, plump strawberries.  We eat a lot and make smoothie out of the rest.

Miami, Florida, USA - 12th January 2008

By: tarepanda

Tonight we go to the BookCrossing meetup, where booklovers gather together to talk about and swap books. There are a lot of TVs too.  Besides Trapito, Mommet, Budd, prince charming and Mister_Right, I also meet mittens and picado.


After the meeting, I bide farewell to my dear friends and go home with mommy Ppagano.  I have travelled quite a bit so I am really happy to see her again and get a bit of rest at home.
