Early in the morning and we’ve all gotten up excited for the day of the competition!!!
Even as just the blogger i was super hyped up for it lol!!!!
Had our breakfast at Cafe Marco in Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel! ^^
Check out the participants at breakfast as well :)
SO MUCH FOOOOOD :D
I took some yummy fried rice
Oatmeal Porridge with you tiao
Scrambled eggs and bacon strips
Portugese egg tarts, quiche and some nutella spread to eat ahahah
ALL of these food were for me!
Likewise, I texted Celeste for them to have a super good breakfast so that they didn’t have to waste much time eating later on during the competition’s allocated shopping time ^^
After breakfast while waiting for Celeste and Nicole to reach the lobby I went to the pretty toilet and couldn’t resist taking some pictures ahahah
MARCO POLO HONG KONG HOTEL’S TOILETS ALL SUPER NICE!
My run-able outfit just in case Celeste and Nicole are going to run or walk a lot during their shopping spree for the competition and I need to catch up!!! :p
EVEN THE WALKWAY BFORE THE TOILET IS SO PRETTY! :D
Celeste and Nicole has reached the hotel lobby with their personalized HKSS cropped tees!
It was originally a plain teeshirt. But with Celeste’s creativity, the entire outfit spiced up a lot more! :)
Preparing to head off to Harbour City, where the competition will be held!
Early morning and our Singapore team is all-ready for the cameras!!!! ^^
