So as you guys know, I was MIA during December as I was traveling with some of my closest friends on leavers to Hong Kong & Singapore.
I guess the term "leavers" is more of an Australian idea, which is basically when "leavers" (aka. year 12 students) go with their friends to places after their final exams. Usually most people travel with their friends interstate, overseas, on road trips or (for those who live in W.A) "down south" to areas like Dunsborough or Margret River.
For our group of friends, we planned our leavers trip to go to Hong Kong & Singapore on the 1st December!
haha The planning it's self was a little stressful & we made sure that we had all agreed on everything & that our parents were alright with our plans, before buying our tickets & booking our accommodation super early.
I'll be mainly sharing photos rather than our stories with you guys - so be prepared for the photo post!
I think you guys will be able to recognise who my friends are, but just in case - I'll put names in the first few photos~
We met up at the airport at around 3:30am to check in & catch our flight together. It was super exciting for all of us to be traveling together as we've never travelled with friends & without adult supervision before!
We left Perth at around 6:40am & reached Hong Kong at 6:50pm. It was a whole day spent travelling!

Photos from our Singapore stop-over. We ended up only having enough time to grab some lunch before we had to get ready for our next flight.
The cute little Peko Milky power bank honestly was such a life saver during my whole trip! Without it, my phone would have died around mid-day and my camera (aka. my life) wouldn't have lasted the day!
We woke up early to pick up our tickets for the MAMA concert which was tonight then we headed out to the Arygle centre & Ladies market to do some shopping. I really regret not buying more!!!
MAMA was AMAZING!!!! I can't believe I managed to see so many k-pop idols live!!!
My friends and I went crazy & we cheered super loudly - but the people around us were....not as hyped? I'm not sure how to describe it...but I know for sure that my friends & I had an amazing time!
After the concert we rushed to catch the last train back to our apartment. Ryan was so sweet, he bought us a cake incase we were hungry when we got home from the concert. We didn't end up falling asleep until after 2am...
Another day of shopping & exploring!
I had less than 6 hours sleep - but the excitement of our day ahead of us was my fuel for energy.
First stop was at City Plaza - where I discovered Muji. omg I love everything about Muji! Their stationary, furniture, food etc.!!
The shopping complex had some christmas decorations on display~
In collaboration with Earth Doll
I'm wearing the gorgeous Maddie Open Back Marble Slab Romper paired with a gray coat I got from Hong Kong. I absolutely loved this romper because it was super comfortable, the material was nice & it had a marble print! I got it from a Singapore based store called Earth Doll - they sell a lot of nice clothing at reasonable prices (most items are less than $20!).
Lately I've been loving marble print~ It's really pretty!
I've been looking for it on wrapping paper, notebooks & I also saw it as a shopping bag when I was in Singapore.
After shopping a little, we headed to find a Hello Kitty cafe. ♡
I am obsessed with Hello Kitty!!! I was super excited to visit the store!!
We ordered a few drinks & a cake to share. The place was (to be honest) over-priced - but it was a nice experience to visit the cafe & take lots of photos~
I got my hot-chocolate with a princess kitty!
yay!! I had never been to disney land before, but it was so much fun!!! ^^
Most of the day was lots of fun, but there was this couple who had our mood slightly dampened...
This couple from India completely cut the que for one of the rides & feigned ignorance! They pretended that they were waiting for a non existant friend and just cut the que?! what the frekkin heck?!!?!
And these people were adults! They should know better and have the manners and decency to que up like everyone else. Bloody hell.
The fireworks at the end of the day were beautiful~
Macau!! We headed to Macau but little did we know we picked the wrong day for Macau...
First we went to the Venetian Hotel and then we planned to visit the St. Peters Cathedral - but when we were about to head to the St. Peters Cathedral, all the roads in that area were closed!!! what?!!? haha so we sadly called it a day and headed home.
We traveled & walked quite far in the morning in attempts to try out this Hong Kong style breakfast...it turned out to be really bad & the lady even ripped us off!!
I ordered kaya n butter toast but instead I got condensed milk. Joyce had it worse..she ordered a pork chop bun - which ended up being a piece of plain toast...
We later headed for Lantau island!
The que just to buy tickets took us over 2 hours, but we bought tickets for the crystal cabin~
It was actually Hello Kitty themed when we were there!! (YASSS!!!)
haha even Tracy ended up using my power bank when we were at Lantau Island!
One thing that I've realised after my trip was that my instagram feed became a page where you needed sunglasses to view it! ... ahah I got a little carried away with the exposure settings....
Part II will be up soon!
