Hong Kong Trip 2

We took a break from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and enjoyed a few days in Macao.

Macao is the mini-Las Vegas of Asia with all its casino's and apparently dodgey places... but I never got to explore that part :)  We stayed in the Venetian which is the largest hotel in Asia.  Really posh.  The hotel even has its own river - complete with Gondola and singer!

There's a lot of gambling in Macao and there'll be even more with more hotel/casinos being built.  I'm guessing in four or five years, the main Macao strip will rival Las Vegas.

Anh and I tried our luck playing "Sic Bo".  Its a really simple game to learn.  The dealer/casino/robot rolls three dice and you pretty much have to guess what comes up.  We played this the most and lost a bit of money the first night.  Thankfully my luck changed the second night so we ended up breaking even :)

But of course Anh and I cared little about gambling.

We cared more for the food!!

My Fat Burger
Our ferry food

Hmmm. New York style pizza.

This is how you do high tea!
