Light Me Up

i flew to macau twice this week, back to back. yesterday, was a night flight there. just beside the terminal, stood the hyatt hotel, hard rock, and crown hotel. they had colourful lights from top to bottom. the lights were coordinated.

it was quite a sight watching the three buildings changing colour from yellow to orange to red to blue to green, from left to right, then up to down like drizzling down the ceiling.

how cool is that? coordinated technicolour. and behind them stood the infamous venetian macau majestically. the temperature at macau was 11degrees. when the service door was open for disembarkation, i could feel the cold air gush into the cockpit. brrrrrrrr.....

the whole atmosphere was incredible. the sight, the cold air, sadly i was all alone in the cockpit settling the paperwork. i don't get to enjoy night stops, but i think certain moments are best enjoyed for the shortest period, else they'll go basi.

what a life :)

the sister was worried about IvanTheTerrible going to school and buying food at the canteen since ITT doesn't know how to handle money. on the second day of school, she gave him 2 one ringgit notes, and some coins just in case (in addition to packed food). when he returned, she asked him, "did you buy anything?". shocked with his reply though, because he came back home without a cent on him. alas, he has been introduced to the wonderful experience of money spending.

just for comparisons, my mom gave me 50cents to spend in primary 1. inflation, perhaps?

:P

anonymous: identify please, thank you. plus, you confusing me, have you been there too? or have you fallen in love with the scenery just because of my description? (you're comment very mysterious, tsk tsk) and yes, it does look like a nice place to visit at night. i don't know about activities though, whether it'll suit you're liking. BUT for a momentary sight, its worth the trip :)
