來到11月，澳門的繽紛璀璨彷彿被一股速度與動感熱潮包圍著，說的就是萬眾期待的“ 太陽城集團第65屆澳門格蘭披治大賽車” ，於11月15至18日期間隆重舉行。作為賽車狂熱份子的我Kenta及美女Samantha，當然不會錯過；難得美女相伴，我早已安排好一系列節目，與她一起從早到晚享受澳門每一個精彩時刻。
Macau in November is embraced by a dynamic passion as Suncity Group 65th Macau Grand Prix will be held from 15 to 18 November.Samantha and I, Kenta, are both auto racing fanatics and cannot wait to witness these splendid moments in Macau.
假如賽車是速度與膽識的比拼，那麼愛情就是細心與耐性的堅持，要奪得美人歸，為她細心準備節目，適當的時候送她一個驚喜，絕對不可或缺！在炎夏攀上燈塔、在擁擠的街頭上與她忘我起舞，是賽車手該有的意志，也是男子求愛應有的風度與魄力！從熱血沸騰的賽道轉移至濃情蜜意的小巷，戀愛巷位於大三巴街和大三巴右街之間，名字是來源於其葡文名稱Travessa da Paixão，“ Paixão ”可解釋為迷戀和激情。因為戀愛巷美麗、浪漫而神秘，這裡曾成為電影《伊莎貝拉》的取景地，還出版了以其名字為名的繪本小說《戀愛巷》等作品。以上種種原因吸引了不少情侶、準情侶慕名而來，希望在這僅長50米的小巷中，成就一生一世的約定。

While racing is a competition of speed and courage, love is how you win with tenderness and patience. A right arrangement and a special surprise at the perfect timing are indispensable to truly get a beauty’s heart. A visit to the lighthouse or a dance with her in the crowded street can show a real man’s will and demeanor, just like a racing driver. Let’s move from the race track to the romantic lane. Travessa da Paixão, a tranquil and sweet alley named under the Portuguese word “Paixão” which stands for obsession and passion. It is near the Ruins of St. Paul’s and has been used as a shooting spot for the movie “Isabella” while an illustrated fiction is also published under the same name of “Travessa da Paixão”. Many couples have been attracted to make a lifelong promise in this short alley of 50 meters.

Encountering Stars at Studio City
As the renowned sleepless city in Asia, Macau is always fancy. If cars are racing on the road, a Ferris wheel at a hotel is not impossible. Studio City’s stunning Art-Deco facade features an iconic figure-8 Ferris wheel “Golden Reel” which straddles the resort’s two-tower hotel at a height of some 130 meters. It was inspired by the asteroids shooting through a Gotham City building in the movie “Batman” . The 17 spacious Steampunkthemed cabins present passengers with a memorable 18-minute ride where you can enjoy the breathtaking view of Macau and Hengqin. Moreover,the hotel also offers Batman Dark Flight, a Warner Bros. Batman-themed action-packed 4D motion ride which allows you to battle through the explosive action and heart-stopping gunfire on the streets of Gotham City and race around the streets in a high-speed car chase. Step out of the movie set of your dreams and shop like a star at The Boulevard at Studio City, the wonderland of premier brands and boutiques with a 30,000 sq. m. retail mecca.

除了11月的大賽車，澳門美高梅每年10月舉行的德國啤酒節也是我跟Samantha絕對不會錯過的盛事，適逢今年踏入10周年，啤酒節特別移師到美獅美高梅一樓平台舉行，提供更大的活動場地，呈獻更濃厚的巴伐利亞節日氣氛。Samamtha告訴我，過去9年的啤酒盛會原來合共已吸引近13萬人次入場，當中我最喜愛的德國傳統豬手及燒雞累積近4萬公斤! 而啤酒消耗更超過12萬公升。置身於經典的巨型藍白設計帳篷、在傳統的木製長桌椅上品嚐冰凍的啤酒和特色德國燒肉佳餚，全情投入啤酒節的狂歡與熱鬧氣氛之中，簡直是人生一大樂事!今年，我跟Samantha同樣喜愛不已的表演團隊Högl Fun樂隊亦會再度從慕尼黑遠道而來，以載歌載舞的方式將現場氣氛推至最高點。美酒當前豈能沒佳餚作伴？在今年公佈的“ 世界50最佳餐廳”名單中，Mauro Colagreco的Mirazur餐廳與津村光晴的Maido 餐廳在排名榜上分別位列第3及第7位。兩位世界級名廚分別在美獅美高梅主理“ 盛焰”及“ 雅吉”，令美獅美高梅成為全球唯一邀得兩名十大“ 世界50最佳餐廳”星廚坐鎮的綜合度假酒店。Samantha喜愛的“ 盛焰”採用由專人從世界各地首屈一指的農場精挑細選的上乘肉類，配以經典佳釀，品嚐頂級扒類及美酒的必然之選。至於我則較喜歡“ 雅吉”的大膽創新佳餚，秘製刺身及壽司吧則讓我可以近距離觀賞大廚即席炮製海鮮料理。
Gastronomic Journey at MGM COTAI
Apart from the exciting Grand Prix in November, the annual Oktoberfest Macau at MGM in October is something Samantha and I would definitely not miss. This year the 10th anniversary event has been relocated to the Roof Terrace of MGM COTAI on its first floor, providing sufficient space to celebrate the Bavarian festive ambience. Samantha told me that in the past nine years Oktoberfest has attracted nearly 130,000 visitors, and about 40,000 kg German traditional pork knuckle and roast chicken together with more than 120,000 liters of beer have be consumed. It is a pure enjoyment to taste the frozen beer and special German roast dishes on traditional wooden tables and chairs at the classic giant blue and white tents.

喜歡賽車除了因為刺激，同樣愛上跟大夥兒一起暢飲的熱鬧過程，因此總相約好友來到位於石排灣馬路毗鄰的Bottles餐廳酒吧，佔地兩層的Bottles環境設計時尚摩登，感覺彷如置身曼克頓街頭的酒吧般閒適愜意，三五知己無論把酒言歡或在美式桌球台上一較高下也能樂透半天。除了舒服的環境氣氛，Bottles的優質餐飲美食同樣令人印象深刻，大廚更會隨季節與節日調整餐單，務求以合時及創意兼備的美食給客人送上驚喜，好像我最愛的馬來西亞沙嗲串及必飲推介Lychee Rose及Passion Fruit Mojito絕對是透心涼之選。於美酒佳餚及輕快音樂襯托下，絕對是充實一天的完美結束，期待明天的精彩賽事。
Nightlife at Bottles
In addition to the excitement of car racing, we always like to meet our friends at the Bottles near Estrada de Seac Pai Van. The two-storey building has a modern interior design and creates a comfortable atmosphere similar to the bars of Manhattan. Don’t hesitate to try the American style pool table with friends or spend your time on drinking to cheer up the day. Furthermore,Bottles impresses us with its quality food and drinks. The chef adjusts the menu according to different seasons and surprises guests with creative cuisine. My favorite Malaysian satay, Lychee Rose and Passion Fruit Mojito are definitely the best choice for every season. Enjoying the tasty wine and light music in the bar, it is no doubt a perfect end to a full day.
