initally the cafe that we wanted to visit was closed on sunday as they want their staff over there to spend more time with their family (so thoughtful and nice right?!), but after knowing that we actually went down all the way just to visit the cafe, the boss (which is also our guide’s friend) decided to open up for us! serving us with cooling drinks, coffee and cakes! ;D

If you are visitng Tai O, do remember to drop by this cafe for a cup of coffee and some cakes while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the village ๐Ÿ˜‰ The name of the cafe is SOLO ๐Ÿ˜‰

was attracted to this stall that sells lots of toys, very vintage style and i loved it!

and this gotta be my favourite one.. You know other than planking, there is another new trend whereby pple takes pics of them floating in the air? I tried to take one and i think it turned out pretty nice!

Since we still have some time left before dinner, we visited the citygate outlet mall whereby you can find all those BIG brands outlet store over here. Example like Nike, Addidas, Puma, Espirit, Mango, Timberland, Armani Exchange and many more!!!

SO we went for a 2 hour shopping spree and i managed to grab a pair of shoes and 2 tees ๐Ÿ™‚ SUPER HAPPY !!!

We visited the discovery bay for dinner and only got to know that discovery bay is such a unique residential area. No cars are allowed in that area, only the shuttle buses. So the only transport the resident there can take is the shuttle bus and the ferry which runs 24 hours daily… quite cool huh?

IMG_0556.jpg

Pics turned out pretty decent under low-light conditions ๐Ÿ˜‰
