Day 360/365

Pousada de São Tiago

Don’t point at me! >u< People say that there is the smallest chapel with no more than 10 seats in this fortress hotel. Where is that chapel?

Pousada de São Tiago: was originally a fortress built by the Portuguese in the early 17th century to defend Macau against hostile European nations and local pirates, then after many years it was transformed into a Portuguese style hotel known today as Pousada de São Tiago.

Day 338/365

St. Joseph's Church

Information from the Historic Centre of Macao: “At the St. Joseph’s Seminary and Church. The Seminary was established in 1728 and the Church that is part of this complex was built in 1758. St. Joseph’s Seminary, together with the old College of St. Paul’s, formed the Jesuits’ base in Macao, for the missionary work that they would implement in China, Japan and around the region.The Church has a dome that measures 12.5 metres in diameter and rises 19 metres above the ground. It is decorated with two rows of 16 clerestories which enable natural lighting and ventilation. One of Macao’s most precious religious relics, a piece of bone from the arm of St. Francis Xavier, the first Jesuit missionary in the Far East, that formerly belonged to the collection of the old Church of Mater Dei (present St. Paul’s Ruins) is kept in one of the side altars inside this Church. St. Joseph’s Church, together with the Ruins of St. Paul’s, are two very rare examples of Baroque architecture in China.”

Tea Culture House

How much do you like drinking tea? I like drinking green tea, especially Dragon Well and Ti Kuan Yin, as they have a long list of health and beauty benefits! 😀 Two cups a day or four cups per week is just fine for me, cause I find they could upset my stomach if I drink it too much. In this photo, we are at the Macau Tea Culture House, located next to Lou Lim Ieoc Garden, on Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida. Opened to public since the year of 2005, and it is considered the first and the only one tea culture museum in Macau. 😀

Day 311/365

Nan Van Lake

Due to the development of the city, I’m afraid that many scenery, including this scenery of the Penha Church, will be very different soon. The tall building right behind the church is one of those  “scenery destroyer”. >.<
