Macao Trip Day 2
It's time to continue my Macao (Macau) Trip Day 2 travelogue. After I blogged about my Macao Trip Day 1, a lot of readers PM me on Facebook asking where did I visit and which restaurant is suitable for food hunting. Actually you can find all the info here in my blog post. I try my best to collect all the info for you guys. Hopefully you guys enjoy reading and don't forget to copy all the info for your reference.


View from Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16
View from my room @ Softel Macau at Ponte 16
Ta-da! I woke up early in the morning and when I open my curtain, I can see this beautiful sea view of Zhuhai. Yes, the sea is actually the border between Macao and Zhuhai.

Basically there are many facilities at Sofitel Hotel. They provides gym room, swimming pool, spa and many more. We have our buffet as breakfast. Outside view is beautiful as well.

Macao Open Top Bus
Macao Open Top Bus
This is my third time to experience the Macao open top bus. The first time was Australia, second time at Hong Kong and third time is Macao. The experience is great as you can visit many places at one time. In addition, the weather is a little cold (14 degree celsius) so I have no problem for that. You can just raise your hand whenever you want to stop, the driver will know and stop for you.


Leitaria I Son (義顺牛奶)
Leitaria I Son (顺牛奶)
Leitaria I Son 牛奶公司(also known as Yee Shun Milk Company) is a legendary steamed milk pudding establishment from Macao. Obviously, steamed milk pudding is their signature dish in the house. Although I'm not a fan of milk, but I decided to give it a try.

Steam Milk Pudding & Red Bean Steam Egg
Steam Milk Pudding & Red Bean Steam Egg
Most of the bloggers decided to try their signature dish, I tasted a little, really smooth and taste nice. For me, I go for Red Bean Steam Egg and it actually taste not bad. The egg is so "eggy" if you can get what I means. You can find several branches in Macao.

We then head to Studio City Macao (新濠影滙). For your info, Studio City is a hotel and casino resort in Cotai, Macao.

Come and enjoy a truly unforgettable experience on one of the world's most iconic attractions - Golden Reel. Born from an epic Hollywood-inspired tale of two asteroids careering through Studio City's main facade and leaving a perfect "8" shaped hole, Golden Reel is a panoramic spectacle that promises to thrill, amaze and take your breath away as you travel around a figure-8 track high above the resort.

After several entertainment, we have our lunch at Cafe Litoral (海湾咖啡屋). It is a Macanese cuisine. This is my first time to taste a Portuguese foods and before that I have no idea what it will look like. At Cafe Litoral, you can taste the authentic Macanese foods. What we have here are prawn, crab, fish, chicken, lamb and many more. We enjoy the meal here and I personally strongly recommend you guys to come here give it a try!

Ruins of St.Paul's (大三巴牌坊)
Ruins of St.Paul's (大三巴牌坊)
I think I no need further introduce the popular tourist attraction in Macao. Most of the people saying if you haven't visit Ruins of St.Paul's, that means you haven't visit Macao yet. The Ruins of St.Paul's are the ruins of a 16th-century complex in Santo Antonio, Macau.



If you don't wish to take some mainstream photo that you can find everwhere on social media platform, maybe you can try what I did - Visit this place at night time to for different view. There are less people visiting this place at night time.

Me and Squall decided to have our high tea at SAB Cafe Macaense which is located just nearby the Adream Workshop 3D. Their pastries are actually not bad.

明记碟仔糕 (Traditional Chinese Cake)
明记碟仔糕 (Traditional Chinese Cake)
When we passed by we saw this 碟仔糕 (traditional Chinese cake) looks so attractive so we drop by to have a look. The uncle (owner) saying he have did this for more than 30 years! I only try this type of cake in normal temperature in Malaysia but this is the cold version. So we bought the coconut and yellow split peas flavour and they taste good!

LCM (澳门葡式辣鱼店)
LCM (澳门葡式辣鱼店)
Do you know sardines are actually one of the famous souvenir in Macao? We step in a sardines shop called LCM (澳门葡式辣鱼店) and I'm so surprised when I saw their packaging. The packaging is so creative and colourful. Really worth to bought some as souvenirs!


I took some photo by myself before we freshen up and head to Macao Food Festival. Staying alone in the room is fabulous! I can do whatever I want.

The 16th Macao Food Festival was convened at Sai Van Lake Square from 11th to 27th November 2016. There are over hundreds of local food merchants will participate in events to bring out the unique food culture of Macao. As you can see from the photo in the middle, I'm the reporter at that night. This is my first time as a reporter and I'm so nervous. We have a short interview session with the organiser.

This year, the Organising Committee has gathered 120 local restaurants and invited 26 food and beverage merchants from Malaysia to join the event. A Malaysian Village will be built at the lower level of Sai Van Lake Square, in which the participants will present the authentic Malaysian delicacies and give the residents and tourists an extraordinary experience.
