Can you believe it’s August already?! Summer is already starting to fly by! Maybe it’s because there have been so many events and things to do that time just seems to be eventfully passing by. Well, August is not going to be any different – in fact, it seems like this month is even more chock-full of stuff to do. Being the mega resort powerhouse that it is, Galaxy Macau has numerous quality dining promotions to check out over the next few weeks.
The first of these is all about Huaiyang cuisine, which is one of the four major national fares of China. It’s a prestigious and time-honored cuisine that emphasizes the original flavor of the ingredients. To coincide with Malaysia’s independence day held at the end of the month, Galaxy Macau is also bringing the annual Malaysian Food Festival back to Macau for the seventh year in a row, and they’ve arranged a special buffet just for this which will take place throughout most of August. It’s not all food though – there is also the World Animation Festival featuring 14 films this month, plus the prominent Wushu Masters Challenge 2018, which is a full-contact Chinese martial art.
So there is plenty to fill your calender this month – next time someone tells you Macau is boring and has nothing on, tell them it’s fake news. 📰🎭👺📝
Have a good August!
