Day 240/365

St. Dominic's Church

Sending prayers to my mother, father, brother, sister, lover, all relatives, friends, flickers, blog buddies and coworkers. Also, to the people who I know and to those who I don’t know. Amen! (= . =)

St. Dominic’s Church: This church was established in 1587 by three Spanish Dominican priests who originally came from Acapulco, in Mexico. It was originally built in wood, hence its naming in Chinese as “Pan Cheong Tong” meaning “Church of Wooden Planks”. This church is connected to the Brotherhood of Our Lady of the Rosary. In 1929, this church integrated the worship of Our Lady of Fatima into its religious service, based on the account of the miraculous sighting that three shepherd children witnessed in Fatima, Portugal. After its establishment in Macao, the popular belief of Our Lady of Fatima expanded to Shiu-Hing, Timor, Philippines, Singapore, Malacca and other regions. St. Dominic’s Church maintains the tradition of organizing a procession through the city, held on 13th May every year. The insignia of the Dominicans is displayed on the pediment that crowns the building facade. The building has a typical Basilica plan and presents some BaroqueΒ  influences in the interior decorative elements. A three-storey high hell tower is located close to the sacristy area, where a small sacred art museum was installed during the restoration works of 1997.

Lou Ka Mansion

Lou Ka Mansion: This house built around 1889, was the residence of Lou Ka, a prominent Chinese businessman known for his banking enterprise. His contributions to charity works earned him high respect in the local community and in 1890, he was honored by the King of Portugal. The location of this old house is also a good testimony to the diverse social profile present in the center of the old “Christian City”, where this traditional Chinese residence stands near Senado Square and Cathedral Square. Although the house is typically Chinese in its general architectural structure, the decorative motifs also integrate subtle western and regional influences, including the application of thin films of mother-of-pear as glazing on the windows, integration of western style balustrades and the use of perforated wooden ceilings, similar to those found inside Macao’s churches, a technique that is also related to Macao’s tropical climate.

Day 226/365

Pousada de Coloane

One of the beauty of life is when we can stop and listen to the sound of silence. When I do this, all I hear in my mind is this song from LP: “… All I want to do is trade this life for something new…holding on to what I haven’t got…”

I hope you like this song too! πŸ˜€

“Waiting For The End”

[Mike:]
This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone and the violent rhythm
Though the words sound steady something empty’s within them
We say yeah with fists flying up in the air
Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there
Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and the fear
Until we dead it, forget it, let it all disappear

[Chester:]
Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It’s out of my control
Flying at the speed of light
Thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It’s hard to let you go

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got

Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn’t so

I know what it takes to move on
I know how it feels to lie
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got

[Mike:]
What was left when that fire was gone
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it’s like moving on
And I don’t even know what kind of things I said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead
So I’m picking up the pieces, now where to begin
The hardest part of ending is starting again

[Chester(till end):]
All I want to do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got
I’m holding on to what I haven’t got
I’m holding on to what I haven’t got

[Mike:]
This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone and the violent rhythm
Though the words sound steady something empty’s within them
We say yeah with fists flying up in the air
Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there
Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and the fear
Until we dead it, forget it let it all disappear
