In Macau with Girlie

Guess who dropped by Hong Kong for a visit? Yep, my ever partner in crime, Girlieanne!  It’s nice to see a familiar face again.  Living in Hong Kong is great and the people I meet everyday is very interesting…but old friends from the place you grew up in can bring this type of warmth and comfort that new experiences, no matter how great they are, cannot give.

She stayed for five days.  We decided to visit Macau as it’s only a 1 hour or so boat ride away from Hong Kong.

The best milk pudding with red bean can be found in Literia I Son.  It’s a few paces away before reaching Senado Square.  It’s a must try.

Food was our first destination upon reaching Macau.  Hookay, it was like this.  It was a spur of the moment thing– the-going-to-Macau-decision.  We were supposed to go to China but we were late when we reached the Consulate office.  Going back in the afternoon means to get the visa the next day…so instead of waiting 24 hours to go to China, we decided to head to Macau ferry terminal.  When aboard the boat, we realized we know nothing about Macau.  What to do and where to go.  We were hungry because we skipped breakfast and by the time we reached Macau we were starving…and we went into the first restaurant that we thought served good food — judging by how many people are entering….and finding Literia I Son was lucky…deym lucky!

Largo de Senado is a public square in Macau that stretches up to 3,700 square meters.  It is known for it’s wavy patterns.  It is called Senado square because it is located in front of Leal Senado Building.

We visited the Leal Senado Building to see the Print Collection of Arthur M. Sackler

We were not allowed to take photos of the prints– oops.

Inside the building is a staircase that leads to an indoor garden…soo cool

Haha! At our school’s dimsum party, I snatched a small replica of that big fat chinese man there for Leon! It was just after Chinese New Year–maybe that’s why he is everywhere!

We bought dried meat and Girlie was happy to see the church of St. Domingo in Senado Square.

Of course we visited the casinos! @Grand Lisboa.  We were not allowed to take photos but …yeah… we did anyway

Ruins of St. Paul.  First Jesuit church in Macau.

Behind the catholic church ruins is a small temple…

Incense is everywhere…
