A walk around Macau

Last year, when Panda and I went to Hong Kong, we also got a chance to swing by Macau! His mom had spent some time there as a child, so it was pretty special. I don’t remember much from the time I went myself, so it was good to visit again. Check out some of the random things we saw, starting with some guys feeding the sea creatures at the MGM Macau. I want to do that!!!

Over at the Wynn, we watched a random show about the Tree of Life. The ceiling opened up, a tree came out of the ground, and there was some epic music. After some storytelling, the tree went back down and the ceiling closed up again… I vaguely remember seeing this the first time I was there.

And I got to witness a lady making treats! It’s like a crepe cookie wrapped with dried pork and seaweed. What a strange combo.

Princesses of the MGM

When I went to Vegas for Christmas, we went to see David Copperfield at the MGM and came across these lovelies.  They aren’t in the best of shape for their kind, but they’re still fun to look at.  Where are the males?!  I was hoping to see some mane action, oh well.

She's just chillin' as people stand below her and gawk.

I'm sure they don't get as much exercise as the wild ones, which might explain why she kind of looks like a pig from here...

She's just stretching her aching muscles.

Aww look, she's a tree hugger!

The handlers mostly just hung out in there, occasionally handling the lionesses.

"Hey, you lookin' at me?"

This is what I call "walking all over each other." 😛
