The second stop of our bike tour is at this Michelin Guide 2017 eatery. The surrounding is pretty – on the Largo Eduardo Marques square, diagonally opposite (south of) from Uni of Macao across the water, next to colorful Chapel of St. Francis; runs by 3rd generation. Their famous stewed duck with tangerine peel (chenpi duck 陳皮鴨) only serves after 6 pm, unfortunately. The veggie and squid are yummy. The coconut cost HK$50 (about US$6.45), twice as much as in New York City.
The very first stop of our bike tour. Established in 1989, they claim the creator of the Egg Tart now famous throughout Asia. The tarts are fine. I think anything freshly out of wok/pot/oven, in general, tastes good. There isn’t a line when we get there. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have waited. It reminds me of Georgetown Cup cake bakery.
The yellow facade Chapel, baroque style St. Francis is the center of the Coloane (address: Rua do Caetano, Largo Eduardo Marques, Coloane). It’s built in 1928, facing the 1910 monument commemorating the local victory over pirates on Largo Eduardo Marques and the Shisanmen Waterway. The restaurant Chan Seng Kei where we’ve lunch is to the south side of the church and Largo Eduardo Marques square.
Our destination ends up at the Cheoc Van Beach (Bamboo Bay), on the South/East China Sea. It’s smaller and cleaner than the Hac Sa Beach 黑沙海灘 Baía de Hác Sá) on the east.
A water stage production that runs 90 minutes at resort/casino City of Dreams (新濠天地) in Cotai, south of Coloane. I enjoyed it, in spite of a rather sad day: went to two beaches and a water show but didn’t swim! It’s just so inhumane, unthinkable. And a fall from the biking adventure just adds salt to my injury.
The A section tickets cost HK$980 (abt US$126). In the mist of watering, there’s an act of motorcycling: it fits a circus but with a water production?
Needless to say, change is inevitable. As the local would say, since Macao is so tiny, you can’t get lost on the streets BUT you would inside the casinos. I’ll have to agree.
We don’t normally see them do ads in the USA but many would sell out elsewhere. Scarlett Johansson pitches for Huawei phones (in Shanghai) and Bradley Cooper who graduated from Georgetown in 1993 does Haagen Dazs ice cream (in Macau). Chinese market is increasingly important and powerful, commending the top talents. Matt Damon is starring in the Great Wall by Zhang Yimou, coming out Feb 2017. Dr. Strange has Hong Kong and Wang.
