Macao/Macau, China! Before I went here I did not know anything about this place, honestly and I wasn’t expecting anything grand there. But I was wrong. Macau was fab! Okay, let me start the story:
|Ferry ticket to Macau|
The first trip was 8:00am and we were determined to catch the first trip kaso medyo na-late kami ng 10 minutes. Medyo naligaw kami papunta sa China Ferry Terminal. We just traveled on foot along the Harbour City. We caught the second trip which is 30 minutes later lang naman from the first one.
This was actually my first time to ride a ferry. And because of lack of sleep, I got nauseous that I actually grabbed this vomit bag from the front seat but thank heavens I didn’t get to use it.
Pero 30 minutes din akong parang zombie na parang hinahalukay ng mga maligno ang sikmura.
It wasn’t fun at all! My first ferry ride was a disaster. When we got off the ferry finally, feeling ko I just escaped from hell. But the ferry was clean and organized, it’s just that nauseous feeling during the trip that I despised.
|Thank heavens the ferry ride ordeal was over. Hehe.|
|And Macau welcomed us|
|At the Fisherman’s Wharf|
|With Ate Agnes|
|This is the spot where Jan Di and Jun Pyo talked|
|City Of Dreams|
|Their Almond Cookies are addictive|
|You won’t get lost with these very stylish road signs|
|Ruins of St. Paul Cathedral|
Amongst all the spots that I’d seen, this one is my favorite. Ruins of St. Paul looked so beautiful! I have penchant with ruins. Hihingalin ka sa pag-akyat tapos biglang pagpasok mo walang walls! haha. Sa harap lang pala may nakatayong structure. Kaya nga ruins! hehe.

We were so exhausted from the all day walk so we decided to make the Grand Lisboa our last stop. This hotel was amazing! Excellent architecture!

What I love about Macau: Free transportation. The Venetian. Senado Square. St. Paul Ruins. Almond Cookies.
What I don’t like about Macau: Grumpy people (especially that sour-faced salesman who sells Almond Cookies). Ferry terminal’s verrrry dirty comfort room.
Will I consider returning? YES! I would like to stay here for two nights in my return.
