MACAU THE LAST MINUTE.
so. let me start from the end.
aina, minji, hyesoo, minyoung, carmen and i were calmly boarding bus no. 32 to our hong kong ferry terminal from macau at around 10pm. assuming we’d reach the terminal at exactly 10.30pm.
well, fuck no that didn’t happen. at 10.25pm, we start flipping shit. started asking fellow passengers on board where the fuck is the terminal in bad cantonese and some chinese and mixed engrish.
we ended up at the main bus station… and we were panicking. having mild heart attacks. the passengers were saying “you’ll never be able to get 2 taxis at the same time….”
we flag down one cab in 2 minutes after we got off the bus. and i stole it from a guy BWAHHAHAHA. i was like “PLEASE, WE NEED THIS CAB. OUR FERRY’S LEAVING IN 15 MINUTES” and… yep. at first we were like screaming at the cab driver saying “6 PEOPLE! PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE OUR FERRY’S LEAVING!” he firmly said no. minji shoved me, carmen and minyoung into the cab and said “you guys get their first!!!!”
we got to the ferry terminal. OH RIGHT. BTW. HONG KONG TELEPHONE SERVICE DOESN’T APPLY TO MACAU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! as we got off the cab, we stood at the taxi stand area waiting for minji, hyesoo and aina to pop out. we waited for 15 minutes…. then 30 minutes… then we were thinking some things like “maybe they took the bus after all… maybe it really IS hard to flag a cab…” 45 minutes go by… we’re like “fuck..THEY MUST HAVE GOTTEN INTO AN ACCIDENT” we start flipping shit. all of us realizing that our phones don’t work, carmen remembers that aina’s phone has service.
while minyoung stood outside creeping on every cab that drove by, me and carmen started flagging down people for their cell phones. 1st guy: I HAVE NO CELL PHONE. stupid pinnochio. 2nd guy: use the pay phone. 3rd guy: use the pay phone. FUCK MAN. STOP BEING SO FUCKING STINGY -______________- 4th guy: me and carmen run outside, and approached this guy. all three of us were on the verge of tears… and this guy gave us his phone!!! we frantically call aina praying that she’d pick up. ***AT THIS POINT: we didn’t really care if we had to pay for extra fare ticket [BUTTTTTTTTT, the people at turbo jet were very sympathetic, they didn’t charge extra and kept letting us delay the time of our ticket. from 10.45 to 11.45]***
WE HEAR AN ANSWERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and aina and minji and hyesoo were apparently on the fucking ferry already. i took over the phone from carmen and started cussing. for like.. 1 minute straight of like vulgarity. and hung up.
as we were running through the terminal, minyoung the sweet girl, was cussing too. she was like “NOW is the appropriate time to use ‘chuuluu shibal seki’!” lol. we were soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo pissed at them. we were thinking “WE SHOULD ALWAYS WAIT FOR OUR GROUP OF PEOPLE NO MATTER WHAT!!!”
then, we cooled down and laughed it off.
we finally reach hong kong… and all our anger went away immediately.
the GENERAL RULE: WAIT FOR OTHERS, unless it’s an airplane, or something unrefundable lol. or when cell phones don’t work.
meh. it wasn’t really the highlight of the day. and i just started my period this morning. my tummy hurt like during the middle of the day, but due to aina’s panacea japanese medicine, it really didn’t hurt after a while.
what we did:
1. visit st. paul’s ruin.
2. ate egg tarts
3. ate western food at this rude-ass cafe. the woman called us “cheee-sing” which means crazy in cantonese. we left the cafe saying “FUCK YOUUUU” in a singing tone, and she probably thought we said thank you -___-
4. went to the venetian hotel :)
5. WENT GAMBLING. first played blackjack, then slot machines.
5.5. me and aina both won a lot in the beginning [BWAHHAHA, only like 50 hkd] and then we lost it all because we’re gambling addicts -___-
5.7. oh right. i have check marked all of my vices. alcohol, smoking, and gambling.
6. bought some converses because i have no sneakers here in hk :)
7. ate ‘macau’s famous pork chop noodle’ at the venetian food court.
8. took lots of pictures
9. last but not least… the ending.
10. oh right: the very very beginning of our journey was interesting through the customs part. and NOTE TO ALL FUTURE HKU STUDENTS WITH STUDENT VISAS: WE ARE HONG KONG PERMANENT RESIDENTSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!! fuck yes. line cutting.
