Wanderlust Tales : Casino #atozchallenge

Last Christmas I visited Macau for the first time and was instantly dazed by it's sky high buildings, glamour and glitz of the night life.

That's my husband, holding a map, trying to figure out which bus to board.
Infact, I felt like walking inside a video game. The stunning gizmo lights of Macau had left me speechless... with a gaping mouth my eyes traversed the legth and breath of these gorgeous architecture, bathing in colorful lights. The first thing I wanted to do when I stepped on Macau soil was to play in Casino ... all of them. But well, if only I had that kind of money :P But I did manage to play in three and visit a couple more.

Call it Beginners Luck, but I won 400 Hong Kong Dollars as soon as I played my first bet. It's another thing that I lost all of it in my consecutive bets.

  21. OMG Rajlakshmi - this is the very same place where I won a lot in slots at one go and then lost all of it in the successive attempts!! I should have left after the first win!! My luck in casinos is extremely bad :(

  22. Nice pics. Looks like you had a good time. The trick to remain a winner is to quit while you are ahead :) Thanks for the visit to my blog.

  27. Looks gorgeous! I visited Las Vegas a few times on business and always tried my luck on the slots... I won back enough of my original money to buy lunch! I've learned to place a limit on the amount I'm willing to spend... And when it's gone, it's gone! No dipping into the wallet for more! That way I have some fun and no lasting regrets! Lol!
