S.E.E. Macau Day 2: Venetian – City of Dreams – Statue of Guan Yin 觀音雕像 – Wong Chi Kei 黃枝記粥麵

Posted on April 4, 2011


continues from S.E.E. Macau Day 2: Cheung Kei 祥記麵家 – Tai Lei Lok Kei 大利來記咖啡室 – Mok Yi Kei 莫義記 – San Hou Lei 新好利咖啡餅店.

With our full tummies, we decided that we needed a walk rather than a ride so we had a good 20-30 minutes’ walk from Rua do Cunha to the The Venetian, a luxurious casino and hotel resort.

Being here again reminded me of my one-night stay 3 years back. The huge Victorian themed suite with  large bathroom that I totally adore 😀 Nothing much have changed, for the casino and resort, still the same gorgeous interior except there seemed to be much less people this time around. Could be because of the newly built City of Dreams just right opposite – our next stop! 😉

We were there to catch the Dragon’s Treasure show, which turned out to be great! Bear in mind that you’ll have to be there early to obtain your passes.

Snippets of the Dragon’s Treasure show. The 10-minutes’ show is a 4-D experience, shown in a dome-shaped hall. You’ll definitely be amazed by this 🙂

Another attraction of City of Dreams is its Vquarium, a mesmerizing virtual aquarium. After exploring City Of Dreams, we decided it’s time to head back to Macau City.

Some beautiful night shots of City of Dreams and Venetian before we left…

We took the free shuttle bus from City of Dreams to the Ferry Terminal and from the Ferry Terminal, we walked to Avenida Sun Yat-Sen for a stroll. Walking along the avenue is one of the best ways to get a glimpse of Macau Penisula night view.

The Friendship Bridge and…

the Statue of Guan Yin 觀音雕像 are among some significant landmarks along Avenida Sun Yat-Sen. Unfortunately for us, the avenue is having some restoration work so some areas are blocked or closed up hence we couldn’t see the Macau Tower from the avenue. By the end of the avenue, our tummies reminded us that we needed food 😛 So, we caught Bus No. 8 (MOP3.5/RM1.4) back to Senado Square for our late dinner.

One of the alleys at Senado Square. Late dinner once again is at Wong Chi Kei‘s, the same restaurant we went to on our first day in Macau.

Season Vegetables with Oyster Sauce (MOP23/RM9.2). I usually don’t eat the stems though they are packed most with fibre because they’re usually hard and slightly bitter but these are soft and sweet 🙂

Deep Fried Wonton (MOP25/RM10) for a small portion. This dish is one of their specialties. The wontons come in large piece of fried skin with filling in the middle. Something different than what you would expect of fried wonton. Crispy and best served dipped with the special sauce provided or my personal favourite, dunk it in the soup for awhile and eat 🙂

The Shrimp Dumplings with Noodles in Soup (MOP26/RM10.4). Their dumplings are as good as their wontons. Large and packed with minced meat with shrimps, accompanied with warm springy egg noodles. Hmmmm…. 😀

BBQ Pork Noodles in Soup ‘Char Siew Wonton Mee” (MOP20/RM8). The broth is the same – aromatic and clear but the BBQ pork, more commonly known as ‘char siew’ is nothing to shout about.

Once again, a satisfying meal at Wong Chi Kei before we call it a night 😀
