Macau Holiday

I booked this trip earlier this year, taking advantage of the cheap airfares ($19.90). It was actually quite enjoyable with a good mix of sightseeing, shopping, gambling and eating. The rainy weather made sightseeing a little more challenging, but, we tried to duck into the shops for cover and shop until the rain went away.

Some of the highlights of my trip include eating Portuguese egg tarts at St Paul's ruins, playing the slots at The Venetian, see actual F1 race cars up close, afternoon tea consisting of Macao pork chop bun at Victoria Restaurant, buying first day covers at the old Macao Post Office, seeing the peacocks at Flora Garden, having green wine with authentic Portuguese food at Fisherman's Wharf, praying at the Ah Ma temple and obtained a copy of the old captain's notes (Its only available in Portuguese but hey! still makes a great souvenir).

I put myself on the wait list for the LV watercolour speedy before I went to Macao (I also put myself on the Singapore wait list). By the time I got there, they only had the Watercolour Papillion and Richard Prince's Jokes series (Heartbreak, Graduate & ManCrazy). I couldn't come back without a bag so I ended up with the Longchamp Le Pliage BD tote in rosee. Looking forward to using it on my next trip.
