Macau Trip

Only 5 words can describe my trip to Macau—A Series of Unfortunate Events. These events include one of my friend’s luggage got delayed and yet another friend lost her money at the hotel. Other than these mishaps, I do enjoy myself at Macau.

We spend around 3 nights at Macau, exploring the different casinos with a variety of  different Theme. My flight on board Singapore airline is a pleasant journey as I am being upgraded to the business class during the last half an hour of the flight. This is to ensure that the Singapore airline staff is able to identify us easily since my friend has reported that her luggage is not being tagged before it makes its way down the conveyor belt. The air-stewardess and the steward on board are quite polite and try their very best to help us.Thanks for your help, my friend sure appreciate it.

By the time that we have reached our Macau hotel, it’s already 6+ and the sky outside sure looks like 7. Although there isn’t a timing difference between Singapore and Macau, there is really a difference in the outcast of the sky. 6+ in Hong Kong looks like 7+ in Singapore and 7+ in Hong Kong looks like 8+ in Singapore.

After we have checked in to the hotel, we begin to make our way to the Macau Tower. Our intention is not to go up to the Tower but to explore the places around the area. Ain’t we lucky as it is the Macau Annual Food Fair

The next day, we make our way to Ruins of St. Paul's. This is definitely an iconice landmark to visit if you are in Macau.

Along the way, you will find many bakery shops. Among them, the most famous is Koi Kee. What I like a about the people of Macau is that they are rather polite and friendly. What’s more, you can also get to sample the biscuits before buying.

The next destination on our plan is to visit the various different Casinos. Among them are the Grand Lisbo Casino, Venetian Macau and Galaxy Hotel. Every Casino has their own individual show like the Dragon’s Treasure media show at the City of Dream. Most of these Shows require Admission Fee though. If you will like to see any of these shows, please do some research beforehand to have an idea of the respective shows offered by the different theme hotel.

As for Food wise, do try out the famous Portuguese Egg Tart and Macau Pork Chop Bun (豬扒包). My only regret is that I did not have the time to visit a  Macau Café to try out their Portuguese Food.
