Malaysia - China Friendship Park@Kuching

Location : Jalan Song ,Kuching,Sarawak.

FrienshipPark was jointly created between Malaysia and China in view of the long history of diplomatic ties which dated back 30 years. Malaysia and China relations go back many centuries,stretching back to the time of the Malaccan Sultanate in the 15th century.

Parameswara was the first Malaccan Sultan to have traveled to China and to have had an audience with the Chinese Emperor.The Royal marriage of Hang Li Po,a Chinese Princess to Sultan Mansor Shah of Malacca further connected relation,as did the peaceful visit of Admiral Zheng He toMalacca.

Wynn and Lisboa Casinos in Macau

Wynn Casino wholly owned by Wynn Resorts USA opened its doors in 2006 . Picture was taken not long after its opening. (Top Pic -Golden Tree of Prosperity)

The Performance Lake.

Intrigue performance of sound, lightings cum fire and water.

The Lisboa Hotel and Casino was opened in the 1970's by the infamous casino tycoon, Stanley Ho. Much of it has gone through many rennovations to keep up with the times.

In light of stiffed competition faced by casinos in Macau like the Wynn Casino, Lisboa embarked on the opening of the Grand Lisboa Casino in early 2007.

Picture was taken in 2007 which was half-completed at that time.

Do pay a visit when you there.....its a magnificent sight you may regret not to visit!!
