Last April, me and the three of my girl friends went to Macau for a much-deserved weekend trip. We didn’t have any itinerary and the hotel was booked the last minute. We even had our own misadventure trip during our first night there but i’d rather not disclose it here for now. Pilitin n’yo ako at sasabihin ko LOL
I am currently uploading some photos taken during that trip while playing the song ‘Tracking Treasure Down’ (thus the title). I remember falling in love with Macau after we stepped out of the plane. I fell deeply in love when we started walking through the tall buildings with real cool lights. They’re enchanting and the cold weather somewhat made me feel like i’m in Europe or somewhere else.
The next day, we had the opportunity to gallivant and my favorite destination is the City of Dreams. We were able to catch the Bubble Show and it was really amazing. While looking at the pictures now, it made me remember how i felt while the show was ongoing.
You know what? I felt like a child again when I entered the venue. My imagination as a young kid is a wild one. I even considered Bugs Bunny and Tweety Bird as my bestfriends LOL. Watching that show somewhat made me feel once again how i felt way back when i was a kid. I used to watch a lot of cartoons and fairy tales. There’s the protagonist, the antagonist, the leading man, the supporting characters and the story teller. What a fantasy land indeed.
When the show ended, I felt a bit sad. I am once again back to reality – the reality that i’ll be staying in Macau only for two nights and i will be going back to the Philippines to face the real world. Don’t you just wish sometimes that you’ll get stuck in that fantasy land forever? That will be boring though after a week 😛
I have a lot of draft posts prior to this one but i just felt the need to release my thoughts and publish this. Maybe I just miss Macau. I plan to go there again next year whether I am alone, with friends or with a partner (teehee). Traveling taught me a lot. Yes, you can learn more about a certain country’s culture and tourists spots through magazines and blogs, but first-hand experience is still different. Like in this one.
When I first heard of the Bubble Show, I didn’t really care much. For me, it’s ‘childish’ to watch such show. Well, yes it is, but i enjoyed it. Unleashing the inner kid in you at times is not that bad. It is something that can never be erased in us no matter how old we are.
NOTE: I will blog more about our Macau Trip soon at Senyorita.net. For the meantime, i’ll go back to bed and go to dreamland. Wake me up at 11:30AM as i need to process some papers for the fulfillment of my real-life dreams.
