Macau: City of Dreams

My health hit its all-semester-low when I woke up between Stephan and Chanrith, or Chanrith and Carson… I don’t remember. Breakfast/lunch came in little cages of delight from a dimsum restaurant down the street. The weather turned against us during our meal, so making our way back to the hotel was almost lethal. I hid under Bell’s tiny laced umbrella, protecting our cameras while drenching in rain and tire splash. It sucks to having no umbrella.

Our 14-person group occupied pretty much an entire shuttle to the City of Dreams. Again, we were greeted by the friendly mermaid, topless this time. Resisting my urge to lose more money, I went to Flame Bar adjacent to the Poker lounge. I ordered a “White Zombie”, not knowing what it was other than that it included “Rum More, Rum Mango, Pineapple, Cream, and Black Magic”. That last part sounded so sick.

The bartender made the drink in front of me, mixing in Captain Morgan, Barcardi Gold, Barcardi 151, Jose Cuervo, and a bunch of other mixers and freshly-cut fruits. She then poured the drink over rocks in a volcano bowl, and did a little “voila” gesture while putting in two straws. I guess that was the black magic part. Look how big that thing was! White Zombie tasted nothing like its ingredients. I am pretty sure at least 40% of it was alcohol, yet it tasted only 10% alcoholic. The fruits probably countered the smell and taste. Nevertheless, I was drunk off my mind after finish drinking; it definitely cured my hangover, though.

Oh yeah, the volcano is flaming. I had to keep my hair from getting burned while drinking even with a straw. Sick. They don’t call this Flame Bar for no reason.
