Senado Square and The Venetian, Macau
Just because Macau is just one ferry away from HK, we thought of dropping by the place first before we roam around and explore HK. So, after leaving our things in the place we’re staying in, we hurriedly went out to check the schedule of the ferry rides.
Yes, we got lost at first. It’s really difficult for us to get directions from others since most people do not really speak and understand English unlike here in the Philippines. Good thing we have crossed paths with some fellow Filipinos and gave us the shortcuts. Teehee! :-)
It was 11am when we got there. We’re rooting for the 2pm ride so we decided to chow down first at a nearby restaurant, Cafe de Coral, since we were really pressed for time.
Ugh, my taste buds do not seem to like the foods! I felt like throwing up :( I ordered roasted beef with salted egg since I think this is the only thing I could feel like eating.
My sister, Janelle ordered something with curry rice, idk. I just hate the smell and its taste. She only had like three not-so-plentiful scoops of this!
Ellkkk! We ended up not finishing all our plates. Well, except for the two boys.
Moving on, we fortunately got the 1pm ride. So, it was like past 12nn already and we still have to go fall in line, pass by the immigration and fall in line all over again. We’re so dead meat! We found ourselves exhausted from running everywhere because we cannot afford to miss our trip. Yayy!
The ticket costs HKD 166 (ONE WAY)
So, after 1 and a half hour, we finally reached Macau just in time :-) It’s so beautiful! It has lots and lots of very, very big, well-constructed buildings. High-end stores are everywhere. You can’t see a single dirt along the streets.
You can tell how rich this place is. If only my eyes could take photos! Too bad I can’t post all the photos here.
What I also love about Macau is the bus rides are all for free! Yaayyy :-)
We headed first to Senado Square. My feet were really aching awfully!! It was the worst! Macau is the city of long walks! Lol.
The crooowd!! Anyway, what I really love about the Senado Square is not the stores, not even the ruins of St. Paul, but…. the free tastes!! Lol. Gossssh! It’s everywhere :-)
We also went to The Venetian to try on the Gondola ride.
The Gondola ride costs HKD 110 per head, I think? Not sure.
Before going back to HK, we ate at the “food court” of the place. Lol.
I ordered beef briskets with that effin veggie again. It was…
Ugh nasty! I thank God there’s Coke in Macau! I didn’t even get to finish half of my dish. No matter how much I tricked my taste buds, they can’t seem to like the foods :(
Anyway, finally we’re off to Hong Kong.
Good bye, Macau! See you next time! :-)
TIPS: Make sure you wear your most comfortable loafers, slippers or sneakers. Your feet will surely hurt triple time because of the long walks! Plus, move and walk quickly. Chinese people seem to be in so much hurry at all times. Lol.
