Of Portuguese egg tarts and casinos- Part 2

The next day, I have succumbed to the temptations of MGM's casino. After lunch, I headed to the casino all by myself and tried my luck at the slot machines. I think I had beginner's luck for a moment.

The bonus rounds were my favourite. 

Seriously, I was shocked myself. Also I sent this picture to my dad so that he could buy lottery with whatever numbers from the ticket. And what do ya know? He managed to win a bit from it too. :)

We headed to the art exhibition after my lucky moments in the casino,

The real deal. I felt quite honored to be able to witness this famous painting in person.

After the exhibition, I went out exploring on my own. There's a lot of hotels with casinos in the vicinity so I guess if you're not lucky in one casino, you could always walk to the next one in another hotel. The casino guards were curious about my passport because they never seen a Malaysian passport before. Some even had to do a double take, I'm sorry if my passport picture looks completely different. :P

Went back to the room to get ready for dinner which was at MGM's Imperial Court for some Cantonese dishes to end our last night in Macau.

Fine dining Chinese cuisine is a first for me too!

Appetizer Combination
Yumz in the tumz.

Double-boiled whole South African Abalone with Matsutake mushroom
Would ya look at the size of that?! It was tender and juicy, while the soup was refreshing with hints of the mushroom flavour.

Live Green Crab Claw steamed with Winter melon, topped with rusalka hybrid caviar
Melt in your mouth awesomeness! 

Simmered Baby Cabbage with Bamboo Piths and Conpoy
A simple dish that's good to get your daily greens!

Poached chicken layered with Yunnan ham and vegetables in Abalone sauce
Smoothest chicken ever!

Braised Australian Spinach Egg Noodles with Shredded Roast Goose, Ginger and Spring Onion
Upgraded wantan mee with tender pieces of roast goose. Yums!!!

I think this was a bonus dish because it wasn't in the list. So pretty and the bunny is too cute to be eaten!

Turns out to be fluffy marshmallow!

Yellow Bean Pudding, Chilled Hawthorne and Milk Roll and, Boiled Ling Zhi with assorted fungus and Longan Tea
I guess you can say the best part of the entire course is the desserts!

Freshly cut seasonal fruits

It's so beautiful at night!

Even the walkway from MGM is colourful!

Ended my last night here with my last bath bomb! This one turns your bathwater purple with glitter! Don't worry you won't come out looking like Edward Cullen under the sun. You can always rinse your body with warm water before drying yourself.

Well, Macau has been interesting food wise and culture wise! I wish I had more time to travel around town more to try out the street food and Macanese cuisine. Also, I didn't have the chance to try out the bungy jump too. :(
