A Mid Summer's Night Escapade

Just returned from a 1 week break - went to Macau - HK - Cruise to Xiamen and back to HK.

This trip brought back many memories, some pleasant, some not as pleasant. Still it was quite an enjoyable trip with many 1st times for me.

It's the (1) first time I took a flight out of our Changi Airport Terminal 3 (the return flight also landed on T3)

Also my (2) first visit to The Venetian - Macau.

The interior of which is very very beautiful and artistic. Makes one feel rich too.

My favourite photo

Heard that for next 2 months or so, just register a membership (FOC) with the Venetian and you can use the membership card to get a pair of Cotai Strip - ferry tickets to go to Hong Kong.

Of course no visit to Macau is complete without visiting the "Tai San Pa" - aka St Paul's Cathedral ruins.

However, it rained rather heavily the two days I spent at Macau......Did not really gamble - tho I did play the jackpot as I don't like the smoky environment of the casino. Still the casino in Venetian is so huge.....it's almost the size of 2 soccer field.

Bought some Macau tibits back for colleagues........not much shopping there....although there's still a Yaohan there, but I find Macau not not a good place to shop compared to Hongkong and the price in Macau is also more expensive.

At Senado Square in Macua, there was an exhibition of some miniatures of some of the sculptures relating to the Olympics.
