The Penelope Dress Goes To Macau!


Based out of New York City and Canada, Cinny is the mommy to JR and Baby Pom. When not working or studying full time, she can be found working on Whirlwind of Surprises or cuddling with her hubby and playing with her dogs. She shines in the warm company of friends and family and  enjoys playing with her 3 little nephews.

When you visit Macau, there are a number of things you want to see and taste. One of these are the infamous pork chop buns. On one early, chilly morning, we did just that! Oh, but you can’t just go to any shop…you have to go to the shop that started it all located near the Galaxy Hotel. There are several options of pork chop buns or pork chop on noodles. However, we were so early that morning that we only had two choices so we ordered both to test it out.

You eat outdoors so the food tastes all the better, steaming hot. And trust me, it was boiling hot. I couldn’t even hold the bowl of noodles when it first got served. We had to borrow their metal trays to bring it outside. We kicked off the day with full and warm bellies, not that you could see mine, because my beautiful Penelope  dress  hid it all. I love Penelope dresses all the more though because there are pockets!


As we wandered around Macau, we came across this super neat museum…Macau’s Grand Prix Museum. What?! Yes, Macau has a Grand Prix and it has it’s 60th anniversary next year. With free admission, it’s worth checking out, especially for car fans, before our Afternoon Tea reservations at the Sky 360 Restaurant at the Macau Tower.

 I’ve been to the Macau Tower once before with the SO but we’ve never eaten up there. As you know from my previous trips, I have fallen in love with Afternoon Tea so this really was quite the pleasant surprise my dad planned. He didn’t even know I liked Afternoon Tea. There’s always some sort of dress code when you eat at these tower restaurants but I wasn’t worried. Karina Dresses always has me covered, whether I’m eating pork chop buns on the street or enjoying afternoon tea and views at top of a tower. You’ll be happy to know I wasn’t stopped at the door and told I couldn’t enter.


The food was just amazing…although it was a modified with Asian touches. I can only say it was well worth the money spent for a wonderful afternoon, spinning on the top of the world with my family and Karina.
