#MyTravelBlog: The Eastern Venetian and Historical City - Macau, Part 2

I thought it was the weather change that caused me to feel a little sick on the first day, but I never thought that the fever will get worse. My fever get a little high in the morning, ate medicine and get breakfast at Mcdonald's. I decided to follow the group since my parents had spent so much money on the hotels and air tickets, and also I want to explore the Macau city too.

We get a bus from the hotel and stop at one station for interchange and finally arrive at our destination. Hotels in Macau provide free shuttle bus for the visitors to travel around the city, how convenient it is! For your information, Macau is divided into 2 islands, just like Hong Kong. I didn't know that until I saw the large map of Macau. 

One of the best Portuguese tarts cafe in Macau. Too bad I didn't get to take a picture of the tarts but don't worry, you'll get to see it in the video. Despite of their very bossy boss at the counter, their Portuguese tarts are really good, with crunchiness on the outer skin and the extravagant egg scent on the inside.

Along the street, there's a few coffee shops and we had our brunch there. I remember there's one coffee shop that serve the best fried rice just right beside this cafe!

I can't believe I get to see trishaws in Macau. I thought these only exist in Penang and Malacca!

Look at that lobby and the architecture of the building! This is Grand Lisboa Hotel by Stanley Ho, one of the millionaires (or billionaires) in Macau and Hong Kong and he owns the largest casino in Macau. 

Streets in Macau particularly look like the streets in Hong Kong, with tons of people walking and the road are very small. 

The architecture of the church there are so pretty and most of them are Catholics.


Found this cardboard while I was resting in front of one of the shops along the streets because my fever got high after a number of "ba gua" food testing. Fyi, along the streets up to St. Paulo, there will be tons of shops selling Macau specialty and there's food testing for every product, especially the "ba gua".

K.O. after taking this picture and I felt very cold even with 3 layers of jackets on and it was raining at that time. I went into Hui Lao San, one of the dessert shop and ordered 龟苓膏 and hope that the fever get better but it didn't. My legs get so cold and had to buy the wool sweatpants to wear on the spot (also because my leggings are too thin). But my fever doesn't seem to get any better after the 龟苓膏 and medicine so I had no choice but to go back to the hotel and have a good rest with my dad. 

Here's the second part of the video, a short one!
