I never grew to be fond of Casinos, or Gambling towns. Maybe it’s because I had a bad start. I remember falling into a really bad mood in Vegas on my 21st birthday, when I planned the trip hoping to gamble. I remember locking my self in my room, angry over some argument with the girlfriend, and watched TV all day. That was pretty much it, ever since then, whenever I step into a casino, I head to the shops and restaurants, I look at the people on the gambling floor with a distain and bad taste in my mouth I can’t wash out of, then I just get bored. I don’t understand the people that’s willing to accept the game of chance when the chances are skewed so obviously towards the house, some people just have the money to burn I guess.
So Yes, I came to Macau not for gambling, but a little bit of market research the food. It’s smart on resorts to introduce other reasons to visit. Totally got me.
This place is a little overrated, The lobster’s a little over cooked, which is alarming. I did enjoy my steak and appetizer.
Hong Kong continues to impress, Work continues to keep me busy, I love this town. More updates to come.
So glad I’m in a airconditioned cab, which apparently is a foreign concept in Beijing.
This place is a great hangout place. It’s clean, small and cosy. Not to mention the food is fantastic as well.
Le Royal Meridien Again, This time I’ve got a gorgeous view of the Bund. Picture during the day after the jump.
Tucked away in a dim lit, uninviting office building somewhere around san li tun, I discovered this bar called “Glen” that does fantastic mix drinks, mostly martinis. The bottles made me wish I could drink like Draper that night.
Portfolio night Beijing. Nice to see the old office and ex-collegues / various bosses again.
