After a brief trip to the hospital again for follow-up check-ups, we then proceeded to Solaire! :D
This hotel has been around for quite some time already, though new, and it’s just now that we checked it out since Jonas heard that the poker games here could be quite good! :)
So we dressed up fancy (woot, woot!) and then we headed over here. And boy, this was really a casino hotel! The whole lobby was a casino floor, and Jonas said that this was exactly how hotels were in Macau :)))
While Jonas was on his games, I took time going around and observing all these people who were mostly old, obviously spending all their pension LOL on roulette games, etc. Damn, legit gamblers!
I don’t refer to Jonas as one of these people though, because these people could have a ‘problem’ of addiction, but Jonas on the other hand does a more calculated game, that uses skills. And he always knows his limits, and I trust his judgement, so yeah. I’m not really worried about him :P
Anyways, in between, since Solaire provides shuttle service, I took a brief trip to MOA which was just beside it and then bought a book: The Book Thief! Due to good reviews that I read online.
And when I got back, I was planning on reading it while Jonas played his game, but apparently, he wouldn’t stay longer since there were no PLO (Pot Limit Omaha) games.
So, we went to dinner instead! We went to this Japanese place: Yakumi and their food was great! We especially loved their wagyu plate. Gaaaahd, it was like sex. LOL :))))))
After dinner, before we went home, we saw this live band playing and checked it out… They were singing ballroom songs! And it was amazing since some old people were on front, dancing along with it! HAHA! It seemed like a regular thing since some of these couples were really prepared: dance steps, costumes, and all :))) haha! We had fun staying and watching these people while enjoying the good music from the band <3
Overall, you can say that we had a really great night! Jonas also had a good time playing poker, and won a bit ;) So, horray!
