Day 3 @ Macau - The Venetian Macao

Along the way back from Ruins of St. Paul's, we went to look for the souvenir.

One of the famous souvenir shop there. You actually can try out all of the products they are selling includes the dried meat (肉干). My dad brought a lot of dried meat. But we already finished makan it before departing from Macau. :D

We passed through a fish ball stall where many people queue up for buying it. So we bought some to eat. The taste was just so-so.

The street crowded with people and many souvenir shops available here.

A-Ma Temple. We took the public bus down to here. We didn’t go into the temple though as you can see the picture there was full of people.

This milk custard (炖奶) was nice.

Evening, before we went to visit The Venetian Macau, we took a short trip in Fisherman’s Wharf (渔人码头) where next to the Macau-HK Ferry Terminal. The Fisherman’s Wharf is the first theme park in Macau. All the stores and restaurants within here are builds in the style of different world seaport like Cape Town, Amsterdam and Venice. It has three major themes which is Dynasty Wharf, East Meets West and Legend Wharf.

This was part of Dynasty Wharf.

Alright, we got to take shutter bus to The Venetian Macau.

For your information, The Venetian Macau is a Renaissance Venice-themed luxury hotel and casino resort in Macau. It is reproduced on its sister casino resort – The Venetian in Las Vegas. The Venetian Macau is the largest single structure hotel building in Asia and the fourth-largest building in the world. Its casino is currently the largest in the world as well.

We had the dinner at The Venetian food court.


This building was huge. I was unable to get the full shoot of this building even mounted with a wide angel lens unless you stand far away.

Day 3 @ Macau - Ruins of St. Paul's & Mount Fortress

This morning we went to eat Macau’s famous food which was the Portuguese egg tart. The café was located the street behind of our guesthouse we stayed. Besides of the tart, they have various kinds of sandwich and drinks. Most of the officers like to come over here took away their breakfast.

It was fresh, warm and delicious. I ate two to three pieces continually. Any nice Portuguese egg tart available in KL? I want to makan leh.....

You can pick any filling you want into your sandwich.

This one was nice too.

Third floor of this building was the guesthouse we stayed.

The place we had the Portuguese egg tart called Magret's Café & Nata. Every single Portuguese egg tart costs MOP5.50.

Day 2 @ ZhuHai - 圆明新园 (New Yuan Ming Palace)

The New Yuan Ming Palace would be the last place to go for our tour package. Among all the sightseeing that we went through the whole day, this place was the most interesting one. Here was the shooting location of the popular China drama “My Fair Princess (还珠格格)” as well.

Here is little information about New Yuan Ming Palace that I get it from internet.

The New Yuan Ming Palace is a reproduction of the imperial Yuan Ming Yuan in Beijing, one of the favorite gardens of the late emperors of the Qing dynasty. It was burnt down and completely destroyed by British and French troops in 1860. The New Yuan Ming Palace was built as a reminder of the glory and the bitter history of ancient China and has been set up as a patriotism education site.

The entrance fee was RMB60 (for night season only).

For the night season ticket after 6pm only can got into there. We been there early and felt little bit hungry. So we bought this makan.

Cold weather with sweet potato....nice!


New Yuan Ming Palace

This is maltose. The shape is special but I wonder how to eat it.

We had the dinner inside the New Yuan Ming Palace.

It was super big portion. Can I say China man like to eat rice? Haha...

We still have little time left, so just walk around.

Phoenix, made by Chinese traditional meal set. Can’t see it clearly?

I really admired how they join it together.

Again, amazing handwork they have. The material was same with that phoenix.

Family photo. Hehe...

Night view was much nicer.

Emperor’s seat

That’s all for the ZhuHai one day trip.
