We went to Macau today, from Hong Kong. We boarded at Harbour City, Hong Kong, and it took about one hour. Ferries leave Kowloon Ferry Terminal about every half an hour, and it costs around 150 HKD. If you have a Visa card, they have some deal.

We went to New Lisboa, which is just beside the old Lisboa. Eh… Well, no photos to show for it. If you are gambling happy, Macau does try to lower the cost for you, and make it the most convenient thing to get to casinos. Most major casino-hotels offer free, frequent shuttle services to their casino-hotels from the ferry terminal, and the land border with China. We hit the jackpot machines. Moral of the story? Know when to quit! 😛

As we got back to Hong Kong pretty late, we had the buffet dinner at Royal Plaza Hotel. It runs from 5.30 pm to 1 am, and it was excellent. Although it was rather pricey at around 400 HKD (30% discount for hotel guests), they had some pretty good stuff, like oysters, and cheese-baked lobsters. I was very impressed by their dessert selection, which included a chocolate fondue! I was stuffed, and had to do quite a bit of work on the treadmill after that!
