Macau Magic Trip: Shop & Fun

Welcome to Macau! And this is the Church of Sao Paulo, the most famous landmark in Macau.
Apart of the magic performance (and food), we spent the rest of the time going around in the city. I didn't manage to go to HK as planned earlier due to some reasons, but nevertheless, we had really good time in Macau!

One of the places that you must visit is the Venetian Resort-Casino. An extremely luxury resort owned by the Las Vegas Sands corporation - it's the largest single structure hotel building in Asia and the fourth largest building in the world!

The design is very artistic and you'd just non-stop taking pictures once you step in. It's almost like you just walked in an art gallery!

In fact we have taken countless of pics - the place is just too nice!

The Grand Canal Shoppes. More than 350 renowned stores under one blue sky - The sky is an artificial one, nice right? ;)

If not because of the local brands are there, you'd really think that you're located in Venice!

And one thing I must mention about this grand resort (since too many pics can't be uploaded), pls MUST have a look at the making of Venetian Macau. It's really a masterpiece by group hardwork, and you'll be amazed by how the blue sky is made!

We also went to the so-called "souvenir street".

Most tourists will buy this as souvenir. Quality pastry. And here I really have to apologize to my dear friends (esp the department mates) - here I really couldn't find any special souvenir to bring back pls forgive my empty-handedness ;(

The famous Macau porkchop bun. Not bad - but can't buy and bring back M'sia hehe.

And another best thing, I finally met up Jeff! My good friend in magic - and I havn't seen him ever since he left to Macau. Had a dinner, catching-up and the card jamming session. To those who can't remember him, he's the one I mentioned in my post "simply the best".

MGM Grand is another attraction in Macau but we didn't go during the daytime. We went a few times to its Lion's bar, one of the best clubs according to my local friend.

The live band performance there is really good.

And in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of China, the Grande Praca has been transformed into a must-see attraction, the Panda Carnival!  
Finally, a group pic with the big Panda! =)
And this is the last post of my Macau trip - really had a wonderful journey!
Thanks to all other performers and, hope can have chance to work with you all again! Take care!
