So what happened after the storm and during the long weekend? A trip to Macau! 😀 – Yup, I missed a supposed to be together night with my love and I haven’t seen him for a week. Plus, I missed two of my classes! Gaahh. Better make it worth my classes!
How are you supposed to feel threatened when the Bomb Sniffer is almost like a lost puppy in the rain?
My first sight of Macau. Macau Airport provides a Public Free Bus that’ll get you to every Hotel in Macau.
The lobby of our Hotel: Sheraton Macau Hotel.
Rm 2365 & 2369
My first Day Outfit.
By the way, Macau is much like Vegas. Their Hotels is also known for Big Guy’s Casino.
Now Time to Explore Macau. Macau has three Main Islands which are Tapia, Coloane and Macau. Just to give you a quick one, Tapia is where you”ll find Taipa Villagewhich are old Houses and a One Street Fleet Market and Small Parks. In Coloane, you’ll see the Panda Pavillion, Chinese Temple and the Coloane Square. And Finally, Macau Island is the main Tourist Island where you’ll see 25 of their Tourist Spots including the famous Macau Tower, Senado Square and the Ruins of Saint Paul.
How to get around Macau? Not easy. There’ll be a lot of walking. You can hop from Hotel to Hotel to avail the Free Bus that’ll get you to a certain point in the Island where a cluster of the Tourist Spots are. Or you can ride a Public Bus. But It’s not like in the Philippines where you can ride anywhere in Edsa. In Macau, there are only certain Bus stops on where you can wait and you have to press the button for your own stop.
From our Hotel, We went to the East Lobby where you’ll find Mcdonalds, rode a bus to Wynn Hotel and Across from that is yes, First Stop: Fisherman’s Wharf. Most of the Structures here are English Themed which is so pretty. Shopping Malls are from 10 am – 6 / 9:30 am
Restaurants are from 12 pm – 3 pm and 6 pm until dawn
The Rocks Hotel and the Afrikana Restaurant has the same owner.
The Afrikana is actually recommended by the Philippine Embassy. It’s more of a bar at night and it comes alive around 9 in the evening.

I typically blend in.

My Second Day Outfit
My Favorite Breakfast? Waffles with nutella an whipped cream paired with Bacon
Our First Breakfast Buffet in Macau
Feast Restaurant Buffet. – There are only a couple of Varieties considering it’s a Five Star Hotel. Most of the Food are just Chinese – not even the Yummy Ones. Aside from Chinese Cuisines, They only had Waffles, Pancakes and Cereals
A view of the Venetian Hotel
My tourist shot with the Beautiful Venetian.

At the famous Gondola Ride inside the Venetian Hotel
The famous skylike ceiling of the venetian.
A look at the other side!
It was nice to hear and see a Filipino working in the Gondola. The Gondola Ride costs 600 MOP which is Php 3,600 for a maximum of six persons.
The way to their Casino.
Either I was the photobomber or she was.
We took a bus to City of Dreams Hotel and from there, took a bus to Macau Tower. Macau Tower is the 10th tallest building in the world.
They have all sorts of activities. Bungee Jump which costs like 650 – 700 MOP, Skywalking costs around 500 MOP per person. I suggest you try the Bungee Jump if you’re not concerned with money. It’ll be one hell of an experience.
My realization: The things that we do to feel alive are the things that threaten our lives.
The heat eventually gets to you.

Leal Senado Building
St. Dominic Church at Senado Square
Ruins of Saint Paul – You will have to walk a long way pass through the Flea Market to get here. If you walk a little bit further, you’ll find Nacha Temple. In my case, it rained. So despite the effort, I wasn’t able to see it.
We’re back to our Hotel for Breakfast.
