Today was an interesting day. The trip started with a taxi right from the airport to the Ferry terminal. When my father and I got there, we had some breakfast at the ferry terminal. The breakfast was pretty good. After breakfast, we bought our ferry tickets to Macau, however, they only had first class tickets to Macau for the 10 am trip. We were able to get on standby on the 9 am ferry. We eventually got on to the 9am ferry. The ferry ride was very interesting. It was alot different for the Washington’s ferry system. Since we got the first class ticket, we thought it was going to be something amazing. Well, we found out that there was very little difference in the first class seats except for a soda and a cup of noodle. It was pretty funny, on the entire ferry, my dad and I were the only one with a soda and a cup of noodle soup. 🙂 When we finally arrived, it was super hot!!! much hotter than Seattle. After a short bus ride, we arrived at Taipa and got to the conference area… and then that was when I realized my presentation segment has already started. They changed the time and I’ve missed that announcement. But the good news was that I was able to present and I was able to have some really good discussion with some excellent researchers around the world.
After a wonderful day of presentations, the conference’s banquet was amazing!!! Oh the food… take a look below!!! and I have to say the services here in Macau is just amazing. I’ve got to come back here sometime. After dinner, my dad and I hang out at the hotel lounge and listened to some really amazing chinese fusion jazz.
