Macau: Yat Yuen



The night was still young. We decided to try our luck at Macau(Yat Yuen) Canidrome, the only greyhound racing in Asia.



Opposite Yat Yuen, there were some stone tables and chairs for the public. I noticed that Macau government had done a good job in this area. While the two macanese were playing chess, I finished my black sesame paste with glutinuos rice balls. Yum yum.



After paying MOP$10 for the admission fee, we spent quite some time understanding the game rules. The lady at the information counter was very friendly and patient. Each race started with the dog owner showing their dogs to the audience. At this time, we had to figure out which dog had the potential to win the race and placed our bet.


6 racing dogs




I bet MOP$10 on dog #4 for game #10. No photos for the racing part as we were not allowed to take photograph during the race.


Dog #1 won the race but I bet on dog #4. Sigh. Dog #1 and the owner walked proudly at the first position after the race.

We bet for 3 games and lost MOP$30. Obviously, luck was not at our side, so we decided to walk back to hotel.

Where did you have your black sesame paste with glutinuos rice ? It seemed delicious. I want to add in for my eating list for 2009 trip.
