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.

  2. Great idea to post a list at the bottom of each post. I might steal that idea! Those pictures are gorgeous. Wow, what a cool display!

  3. Dazzling pics Raj n yes there is a beginners luck for some reason. I won 60 aussie $ and lost it all too :D


  4. The pictures are dazzling. I'very never won anything at gambling :-(. Such a pity, that.

  5. Such amazing buildings and wonderful night lights add to the charm. Winning at a casino, so cool!

  13. Beautiful. I love all the lights.

  14. I feel for you :) I had gambled a little in Genting, Malaysia, but it was just for the experience, lost the meager amount happily. Love the lights, great architecture too.

  15. I am enjoying the pictures on this blog Rajlakshmi. Thanks for sharing and keep them coming :)


  16. The picture are fantabulous Raj..!! And beginners luck, it always works and then takes away everything :(
    But it's always a fun experience right?


  17. Wow!!!! Look at all the lights! Lovely pics

  18. Awe! Those buildings are magnificent. :)

  19. Stunning pics and seeing your husband's clueless expression made me giggle! :P
    Sad that you lost the money. Aww..!

  20. Quite some casino that! Lucky you :)

  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.


  23. Wow! you brought memories of Macau back :) Good one :)

  24. What a beautiful place Macau is :) Great pictures and a wonderful post!

  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!


I absolutely love reading comments, so don't be shy ... write something down :)
