A travel in Macau - Day2

05.Sept.2008 It rained hard that night. Thank you Lord the rain stopped in the morning. We left the hotel at 8:30 and we continued our travel in Macau.

Ko Wah hotel

We walked straight to Largo de Senado. This place is better at night- with the entertaining lights and less people of course. But hey, it's still good to take our pictures here!

These are the bunnies im talking about. This City Hall is across Senado.

One of my concerns with only us travelling is WHO IS GONNA TAKE OUR PICTURES! I like couple pictures more than solo.. Well, we are prepared for that.. Taadadan - A Tripod!

while making the set up


Senado View


After taking enough pictures at Largo de Senado, we searched for Ruins of St.Paul - a 10 minute walk away. Whew, the place is crowded. Many tourists are there! Pagalingan nalang humanap ng angle at timing to have a very good view of the place.

The weather is very hot. I guess it's very evident with our oily faces. We got hungry so we ate some street food near the ruins. We ate yummy seafood balls and watermelon juice. 40MOP. (1MOP=P6.00)

We decided to go back to the hotel because it was nearly lunchtime. We already packed our things because our next destinations are near the Macau Ferry Terminal and it's more convenient that we have our backpacks with us than to return to the hotel again.

Jeric left a Jeepney toy which he bought in Kultura Megamall and gave it to the hotel receptionists. We may not undertand each other but our smiles are enough to tell that we are both thankful.

The plan really is to eat something special that lunch. However Jeric was fascinated with the Hello Kitty Collection of McDonals. So OK, McDonals it is! Meals plus the Kitty cost 67MOP.

After a heavy lunch, we went to Avenida Lisboa because buses to Macau Tower are there.

Casino Lisboa

Too bad we cant find the correct bus stop with the correct bus number so we took the taxi instead. Taxi fare from Avenia Lisboa to Macau Tower is 30MOP.

Welcome to Macau Tower Convention an Entertainment Centre. Entrance here is 85MOP. There's not much people in here. Sakto lang!

And of course how can we not play our favorite arcade game- Dance Dance Maniax. Tokens are 10MOP/10pcs.

Then we went to the elevator which took us to the TOP- at 61st floor! The elevator can accomodate up to 30 persons i think.


Finally we are on top. You can see here Taipa Island, Macau Peninsula, and the bridge connecting them. Very nice view. Macau Tower is very well constructed as well. There are many activities to do here, like movies, bungee jump, etc.


Impressive building

And this one.. Ang hirap ng shot na to. We want to show that the floor is made of glass! You can really step here and see everything below 61 floors! OMG!

amazing - the floor is made of glass.


After enjoying the view, we decided to go to our next destination - The Grand Prix and Wine Museum. It's only a bus ride away from the tower. Bus fare is 2.50MOP each.

Welcome to Grand Prix and Wine Museum! Entrance is 10MOP each. Btw, receptionists are Pinays!

Actually, there are many fascinating cars here. Mejo mahirap lang magpicture at natamad na magsetup ng tripod.. And this museum features a Pinoy racer. His picture, car, and story are showcased here. The name is Doy Laurel.

We just went out GrandPrix and transferred to Wine Museum. How wines are made, history, blah blah. Boring so nagkulitan lang kame dito.

no reaction


wine cemetery?


Well, that's it for Macau. We rode a bus to Macau Ferry Terminal. We are now going to HongKong. Turbo Jet ticket costs HK$142 each. (HK$1=P6.00) Just a 1hour ferry ride away.


tickets to HK

Now in HK, we realized that we took the wrong ferry. It took us to Shun Tak terminal (HongKong Island). We should have taken the ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon Island). So we took the MTR from Central Station going to Admiralty station (Chai Wan line) then transferred to Tsim Sha Tsui. Fare is HK$8.50. Trains are very fast, as well as the escalators. Impressive!

Eto na ulit ang ligaw moments namen. There are 7 exits! Which one will we choose? Super walkathon. As in. We are so tired ang hungry! haha We dont have the street of the guesthouse we are looking for. Luckily a fine pregnant woman helped us. She called the directory and really gave us clear instructions. Thank you dear!

We stayed in Chung King Mansion, 36-44 Nathan Road, Kowloon Hong Kong. Uhm, OK naman but the environment is not. No comment. Btw, price is HK$560/2nights. Ask Jeric for this if you have questions. I really dont know the rate.

Btw, we bought these shirts at Pambansang Tshirt back in Manila.

Moving on, he promised that we'll have a good dinner in HK. Yey! We settled for a Japanese resto. We ordered rice meals, tempura, tofu something, california maki and some soda. The bill is HK$200.

The crews in that resto got fond of us. Jeric's charms. Best in acting again because the waitresses who assisted us cant understand English. After some time we noticed that there 4 waitresses are always around our table watching us. Aliw kayo samen? They also gave me a fork, and some free ice cream!

dinner date in HK

We strolled in Kowloon after having a very heavy dinner. The place is so crowded. There are lots of Indians and Black Americans, and lots of Asians too.

We decided to go back to the guest house, btw the caretaker is a Pinay!

End of day 2.


Watch out for more exciting pictures on day 3..
