The Street Of Happiness
Finding this little street was a nice surprise for me. With it’s buildings with white wash walls and deep crimson red wooden shutters it felt like I was transported into a movie set. Hey there, Indie! Rua da Felicidade or Happiness Street derived it’s name from quite a colorful past. It was once part of Macau’s red light district and I guess many men found great...
That's A Jerk!
One of the “must-try” food in Macau is the meat jerky. They’re found almost everywhere in the island and they usually go side by side with the egg tarts. They come in different flavors and meat like pork roast or hot beef. Truthfully, I am not a big fan of this type of delicacy. They look like tocino (a cured pork dish in the Philippines) and I’m afraid it might...

Kumako365 jp said… Hi! :) Nice blog! And, it’s good to know you have visited Japan too. :) Nice to see you, I’m looking forward to your updates! Thanks so much! I’ve been to Japan a couple of times but I wasn’t into blogging or taking photos that much yet. Shame, I know! I’m actually going back this year. That’s my next trip update after Macau....
The Old Protestant Cemetery And Camoes Garden
Continuing on with our walking tour of Macau, we climb up the steep hills of concrete buildings towards the oldest garden in the island. The Camoes Garden is dedicated to Luis de Camoes, considered to be one of Portugal’s greatest poets. I find myself in the company of old people who converge in the garden to relax while playing their cards and do their exercises. There are even...
Cirque Du Soleil's ZAIA At The Venetian
I have always wanted to watch a Cirque du Soleil show and I was lucky enough to have been able to watch the show in Macau. Zaia is exclusive to The Venetian Macau but, of course, there are other Cirque du Soleil shows that you can catch in Las Vegas, New York, and Tokyo. There’s even a traveling show, Varekai, coming to Manila for the first time. I’m missing out...
Ask Me Anything!
Nina asked… Hi Lilia! I just wanna know what camera you’re using, aside from your DSLR. I love your photos by the way and I envy you. I wish I could travel as much as you do too. :) I love reading your blog ‘coz at least somehow I could get out of the country even in my mind. Hi Nina! I don’t have a DSLR. Yeah, I know right! I use a Canon G11 for my photo-taking needs....
Another Look At The Ruins
We were trying to look for a tapas bar just around the corner, but it turned out to be close for the day. Not craving for anything Chinese or Macanese, we headed up to the Golden Arch near Camoes Garden. Yeah, yeah, we caved.
Na Tcha Temple And The Old City Wall
Right beside the overwhelming Ruins of St. Paul is a tiny and unassuming temple dedicated to the Taoist protection deity, Na Tcha. This clearly shows the multicultural aspect that flourished in Macau during the occupation of the Portuguese. Another feature on this part of the tourist trail is the Old City Wall or what remains of it. It’s pretty boring to look at if...
