Macau: Day 26

Ever see Chungking Express?

Shopping for a new camera.

Dim Sum! Is Hong Kong not the home of dim sum?

more Tie Guan Ying

what to eat?

what to eat?

so beautiful...

Char Sui Bao. No better than in Hong Kong

Hong Kong - Macau Ferry Terminal

Ferry to Macau

Leaving Hong Kong (English Colony)

Entering Macau (Portuguese Colony)

They built an artificial volcano. That doesn't even work. insane.

Lobby of the Grand Lisboa Casino

Floor at the Grand Lisboa - ninja photography.

Largo do Senado / Senado Square
Edificio do Lead Senado / "Leal Senado" Building

Correios General Post Office

The restaurant Zhang shushu wanted to take us to was closed for renovations.

So we found another one...

yum, but Zhang shushu says the other place is better.

Fresh OJ

Igreja de San Domingos / St. Dominic's Church

Rua Do Cunha? Da San Bai in Chinese. It's the road that goes up to...

Ruinas de Sao Paulo / Ruins of St. Paul's Church

This is the big landmark site of Macau. The facade of an old burnt down Cathedral.

Grand Lisboa Casino from afar. It's a pretty ridiculous building.

Fortaleza do Monte / Fort Mount

In front of the museum at the top of Fort Mount

Assassin's Creed anyone?

Back down Rua do Cunha (?)

Mmmm... Macau pork sliders.

Residential Alley

Pasteis de Nata / Portugese Egg Tart

Everywhere you go, ladies shoving beef jerky in your face with tongs.

Milk Tea Boba @ Cafe E.S. Kimo

The library?

Ponte de Sai Van

Macau Tower

The Venetian in Macau

Maria (who studies Venetian Renaissance art) says the only thing they got right was these floor tiles.

A replica of the Campanile / Bell Tower in Venice. Two stories too short and not the same base.

Crazy construction going on all over the island

Another sloppy replica of Ponte di Rialto

Still cool to see, insane they made all this. The Venetian in Macau is the 2nd largest building in the world after the Boeing Building where they make airplanes.

Indoors, David's friend has a Brazilian restaurant here but Zhang shushu had a Portuguese restaurant he wanted to take us to.

random lady singing opera in window.

Manchester United Store? I didn't see a Liverpool store.

Back outside at night time


Ma loves short ribs.

Lamb chops

Coconut juice

Casino madness @ the Rio

I see you

You see me

Casino insanity at the Casino Lisboa

And finally casino madsanity at the Grand Lisboa Casino

Zhang shushu says there are 5 million light bulbs in the lower base. Madsanity.

Not Sparta

Heh. We went to the same bubble tea place in Macau (http://bp2.blogger.com/_bmlpCbfRTYs/RpbyTv5kgnI/AAAAAAAABSY/c8Z5IfK0iRM/s1600-h/2007-05-17-00-22-23-Gabe.jpg), but we got slushies instead because it was so hot in May.
