TGIF: Life in Macau

tgif macao

Second day into the New Year and life in macau, no new resolutions, just staying focused, practising mindfulness and reducing my mad “jumping shrimp” tendency to multi-task on turbo.

Here’s a new series I’ll be putting together, I’ve spent some time with iMovies and really don’t use it enough and it’s such a great creative outlet to do so many things. The last time I made a short film in 48 hours that got featured on BBC Fast Track was well, nearly 5 years ago.

Having the luxury time off in December and not being able to sit still to rest, I was doing typography classes on Skillshare, serial reading Social Media trends and case studies to catch up on all the interesting nuggets that I otherwise never have enough time for in a day.

So, there’s been lots going on in Macau. I went to a Flamenco dance Utopia but found it more melancholic and depressing than cheerful and uplifting, I should have read up on it before, but headed out to the theatre is better than not – slim pickings here in Macau!

Here’s some of my favourite bits this week, walks in Coloane, eating lots, discovering new places and I just got a library card. More on navigating the system in my next posts coming up. Meantime, enjoy the first of many series of my Life in Macau. I haven’t got round to the arduous task of getting my driving licence converted and its been over 10 years since I last drove, so lots of bus taking and walking has been a great way to assimilate. If the husband allowed me to have a bicycle, I’d definitely be cycling, but it does feel like the people drive way more recklessly than in Beijing!
