Offsite Discovery Project

Macau Offsite
November 20-22, 2008
My company had an offsite in Macau. I was appointed the organiser. We stayed at the Westin. We were divided into teams to explore Macau and had to report on the place and each other. Our team was assigned to visit the Lighthouse. Though I have been to Macau countless times, this place looks a little new to me. At least I don't remember the typhoon signs.

Lighthouse and Chapel 東望洋燈塔和小教堂
On the tallest mountain in Macau
I don't think these typhoon signal are still in use
集思會, 歎姜汁奶茶
雖然我成日來澳門, 但飲姜汁奶茶都係第一次, 吾錯, 值得推薦
Group discussion - enjoy a cup of ginger milk tea.
I have been to Macau for many times, but never tasted ginger milk tea.
It is nice, I shall recommend it.

A Petisqueira Lunch

葡國美食天地 - 名符其實, 好好食
Restaurante A Petisqueira - Taipa Island, Macau
November 21, 2008 - Friday

Don't know how my boss identify this little restaurant on Taipa Island. Very authentic Portuguese food, well done, nicely presented and not expensive at all. Inclusive of 10% service fee, we paid only HK$6,700 for the 28 of us. A very good deal comparing with the poor dinner at Fernando last night.

Tapa 葡國火腿香腸和芝士
睇樣你都會話靚, 人人都想食
Does this look beautiful and attractive ?
Paella (seafood rice) 海鮮飯
真係色香味齊, 材料豐富, 確是非一般海鮮飯, 值得回味
There are really lots of seafood inside. Very delicious.
Highly recommended
Grilled Chicken 燒鷄
Very nice. Better than the one of last night.
Pineapple with Port Wine 紅酒菠蘿
我食咗咁耐葡國餐, 這個都算新菜式, 認真吾錯
A new Portuguese dessert that I never taste before.
Very innovative and delicious.
Mixed Salad 什菜沙律
Only by looking at the photo,
you can tell this is far better done than the one we had last night.
出法去睇SHOW 前, 喺威斯叮食番個下午茶餐先.
炒蜆好食過昨晚果碟, 雖然都係有沙.
燒魚,燒排骨, 燒蝦和海鮮焗豆都好好味
甜品仲有egg pudding 和chocolate mousse
色香味全兼價廉物美, 是老闆的好介紹, 值得向大家推薦
The fried clams are much better done than Fernando's, though still with sands. Grilled fish, spare ribs, prawns and seafood white beans are all very good. Apart from pineapples, we also had egg pudding and chocolate mousse as our dessert. We all had our thumbs up. Full services of coffee and tea. A very well equipped restaurant with good and friendly services. Highly recommended.

Fernando Dinner

法蘭度- 名大於質
Restaurante Fernando - Coloane Island, Macau
November 20, 2008 - Thursday

Accept reservation only on weekdays. Take cash only - NO credit cards.

No matter what, we arrived soon before 7pm, but the restaurant was almost full. It was expensive, set dinner plus wine/drink, without service charge, still cost HK$9,700 for the 28 of us. Though expensive, however not impressive at all.

Charcoal-grilled Chicken 燒鷄
This is the only acceptable dish for the whole night
Charcoal-grilled Sea Bream 燒立魚
D 同事話條魚好重泥味, 但係我吾覺, 只算不錯不失
My colleagues said the fish had a heavy smell of mud
Oven-roasted Suckling Pig 燒乳豬
D 肉 '煤' 既, 好差 !
Rotten meat? Totally unacceptable
Fried Prawns with Garlic 葡式煎蝦
接近 '煤', 勉勉強強
Fairly acceptable, not impressive at all
Fernando's Style Green Salad 什菜沙律
Doesn't look impressive at all?
碟炒蜆更加慘不忍睹, 賣相甚差, 兼且有好多沙.
葡國芝士, (除咗我老闆, 冇人鍾意食)
Clams came with sand. Portuguese cheese - nobody like them, except my boss. Served only Expresso, not even a regular coffee. The whole menu had no dessert. I don't kown how they can be such a famous and expensive restaurant, however with lots of customers.
