St Paul’s Ruins is possibly one of the most recognisable monuments from Macao that adorn many postcards and where first time visitors to Macao go for their “been there, done that” shot for social media. The façade has seen many iterations since the 17th century – it was first a college, then a church and […]

This coincides with the Chong Yeung Festival on […]

Also highlighting the unique festivals and events that take place annually in Macao. Stay tuned 😉   Well, it’s the time of the year again in Macao […]

liege waffles macao

This was one of our best kept secret when Liege finally got the waffles dough formula right. When we first tried them at the Broadway Macao food street earlier last year, it was often times inconsistent. We’ve had them both cold and freshly made. Some days great and others not so good.

There are Korean communities all over the world and they bring with them all these delicious sauces and foods. Macau has a […]

Rabbit Inflatable with Fireworks

This year, One Central has gorgeous lanterns designed by different artists to celebrate Lantern Festival. You won’t miss the cute colourful centre piece,  an 11 metre tall inflatable rabbit right on the water. You might remember Artist Carlos design at the Macao Pavillion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010. The piece is inspired by his childhood memories of […]

roger thomas wing lei palace

I am biased as I have to say that the decor at Wing Lei Palace is my favourite in Wynn Palace as it’s theme is green and gold, my favourite colour green so tastefully done, and peppered with tassels and art deco motifs. I was told however, there wasn’t any art deco inspiration behind the […]
