My Dream at the City of Dreams

After our visit to The Venetian Macau, we headed to The City of Dreams which I forgot to ask my Macau-based friend why it was aptly named. Maybe, because of its dream-like beauty. Or maybe, because people who've gone there dream of going back there again. I'm one of them.

The City of Dreams is home to different high end shops and the famous Hard Rock Hotel Macau. Since our friend works there, we were able to chat with their bartenders and linger at their lounge.

Beautiful inverted drops adorn the ceilings.

Before you reach the Hard Rock Hotel, you will be greeted by this awesome drumstick relief.

A creatively thought of  Hard Rock mark.

We didn't taste these yummy treats. But I would love to!

The City of Dreams offers spectacular shows I would love my kids to watch! My former officemate who've watched The House of Dancing Water show told me it's just extraordinary. We watched the Dragon Treasure show and left asking ourselves, "How did they do that?!"

I like these water show so much.
I really enjoyed the City of Dreams, especially the Dragon Treasure show.

As for my dream of bringing Fred and the kids there, that would have to wait until we have saved enough money. For all the oohs and aahs and the feeding of visual appetite the City of Dreams offer, I believe it's money well spent.

Ay, talaga naman, pati ako napapa-ooh and ahh sa ganda ng City of Dreams! Kasing ganda nung lady dun sa VIP Waiting Lounge signage!
Drool pati ako sa tarts. Sarap! Kelan kaya ako makarating dyan? Wish ko lng!

Btw, Beth, nasama sa pag-delete yung comment mo sa Must see in Fuenteventura post ko. Wala na sya nung ni re-publish ko.

Ate Beng, if your plan to go to HK finally pushes through, you can take a ferry to Macau for a day tour. It's like hitting two birds with one stone, di ba? :)

Sarap ng tarts na yan, Ate Beng.

i've never had a good tart, or maybe my taste buds just don't like egg tarts. i loved the egg pies in PI though.

would love to hit macau and more of hk next time - god willing.

First time to see that city of dreams looks interesting the inverted droplets are so cute, nice shot by the way. I hope I can visit Macau someday, maybe when I retire hahaha

The photos look very good! I'm sure it looks even better in person. I wonder how many drum sticks were consumed for that piece of art?

Btw, I tagged you in a meme, I hope you won't mind :D

It's the start of Gabby and Sunday's vacation! And I'm back to the things that I always take for granted: reading and blogging. I've always looked forward to posting here but life has been a whirlwind for the past months. Gabby graduated from primary school and will be in high school this June. Yes, you read it right. I now have a high school kid. How time flies! I got so sick after that and was rushed to the ER and was given antibacterial medicines intravenously. But now, I'm back and raring to blog again.

Don't think that I don't like my job when I tell you that I took a leave of absence just to accompany my daughter to her field trip. I do love my job. But my daughter is growing up fast and I don't want to miss the chances of being with her on times she asks me to.

Ever read or heard about the famous deathbed regret quote? It says, “No man ever said on his deathbed, ‘I wish I had spent more time in the office.'” That thought reminds me to always have time for my family, no matter how busy I am at work. So on times I need to choose between being a mom and an office employee, I always choose the former. And I haven't regretted that choice since I started making it.

Let me be honest here. One of the reasons I went to that field trip was to check out places that aren't included in my must-go-to list here in Riyadh. I am so sure museums and exhibition centers are way below your list too, if they're there at all.

Almarai Dairy Farm and Factory Visit

Whenever I chat with my friend based in Abu Dhabi, I always ask her what she will cook for an upcoming occasion, and she would promptly send snapshots of dishes I only dream of cooking. And when I posted the photo of my husband and me on my Facebook account, with a short "A trip to Almarai Dairy Farm" caption, she later on commented that she and her partner like Almarai products especially the yoghurt and fresh milk. That's when I realized that although we're miles apart, my friend and I still have something in common: we enjoy the same brand of milk and juice drinks.
