Hubby and I went on an intensive 3D2N trip with a few Uni friends to Macau and Hong Kong back in Sep. It was basically a EAT and
GAMBLE PLAY trip, and unfortunately we didn't shop much due to time constraint. Food was indeed the highlight and we went to many makan places that were really impressionable. So I'm going to focus a lot on food for this update with lots of yummy-looking photos to whet your appetite :p
We took an early morning flight via Tigerair and reached Macau in the late morning. Our friends actually departed a day ahead of us and so we took a free shuttle bus to meet them at the hotel. As it was still too early for us to check-in, we decided to head off to Rua Do Chunha 官也街 for lunch. It was also a little early for lunch, so we walked around and went into a little cafe for some luncheon meat and egg sandwiches 餐蛋治. Oooh, I love luncheon meat and egg sandwiches from HK, they are just so yummy! Forgot to take photos in my frenzy to gooble down the sandwiches.
Deep-fried calamari. The calamari was fried to a perfect crisp and tasted so good with its chewy (not tough) texture. The dipping sauce was a little salty and sour, great combination!
After the satisfying lunch, we went casino-hopping and finally settled down at Wynn for Texas Hold'em Poker. Couldn't remember how long we played at the table, but by the time we realised, it was already past 8pm and we hadn't even checked in yet. Haha.
Finally after the sumptious dinner, we headed back to our hotel, Hard Rock Hotel Macau to check in. But after washing up, we went back to Wynn Casino for more Texas Poker. Haha. Yes, we were crazy as it was already close to midnight. Well, since we were leaving for Hong Kong island the next day, we just had to maximise our time!
After check-out, we took a free shuttle bus to the ferry terminal bound for Hong Kong - our next leg of the trip. Had these scrumptious Portuguese egg tarts for brunch on board the ferry :p
The next post, I'll cover the Hong Kong leg of the trip, which was basically FOOD, FOOD and more FOOD. LOL :p Stay tuned!
