February – March 2014

somewhere macau

Macau was a Portuguese colony. It consists of Macau peninsula (border with mainland China), Taipa island, and Coloane island. It’s very rich with history. You can see the unique combination between Portuguese and Chinese culture here. They even have the culture of the mixed race: Macanese.

You will see writings in both Portuguese and Chinese everywhere, but don't expect them to speak English!

A Walking Tour from Fisherman’s Wharf to Senado Square

So I took a bus to the Fisherman’s Wharf because I saw it looked classic and different. Well, basically this area looked newly built, but quite cozy place to hang out with friends or family. If you enjoy walking like me, feel free to follow the route I took and don’t forget your map!

The dancing fountain at Wynn. Quite nice show. I’d been here too many times that I know how many songs in total they have.

St. Paul ruins – the icon / most famous place in Macau. It was bombed, but somehow the front part of the church remains intact. There is a museum underneath it.

Hac sa beach

The most unforgettable moment for me was being around Indonesians so much here. I got to talk in my own language and eat Indonesian dishes. It felt at home. A friend gave me a brand new guitar at Hac sa beach. It was one of the most amazing things happened along my journey away from home. I was very welcomed and I always want to return the warmth to fellow travelers everywhere, no matter which nationality you have. As long as you’re sincere, we might cross paths and be friends🙂
