Sunset Goddess Manila’s Reminiscing Macau 2008 Series. Click here for the TRAVEL GUIDE.
After our thrilling adventure at the Macau Tower, we spent the afternoon of our third day in Macau shopping and seeing more of the sights in central Macau. I did most of my shopping for pasalubong in New Yaohan, which seemed to be the only department store in Macau. One quick thing on pasalubong—I’ve realized that it seems only we Filipinos have this in our language, i.e., gifts that we buy whenever we travel to give to family and friends when we get home. I’ve tried looking for an English word for it but “souvenirs” doesn’t quite encapsulate it. Yet one more uniquely Filipino word, which reflects our culture of close-knit family and friendship ties.
Anyway, I got my Shu Uemura eyelash curler in New Yaohan for half its selling price here in Rustan’s and mainly bought makeup brands for myself and for pasalubong, at prices cheaper than in the Philippines.
From Fisherman’s Wharf, we proceeded to have dinner in Tenmasa. Afterwards, we went hotel and casino hopping at Star World Hotel Macau, where we won money….
And then to MGM Grand Macau, where we lost some of the money we won earlier. Haha 🙂 If money weren’t an object, I would definitely stay at the MGM Grand if and when I go back to Macau. The lobby was so nice and colorful and we capped off the night simply sitting and enjoying its Grande Praca, a really nice way to spend our last night in Macau. Cheers!
