Another view of Macau

Tou tou koi copy
My grandparent's favourite Chinese restaurant in Macau
As promised, here is a look back at some snaps from the other side of Macau. Away from the casino culture in my last Macau post, there is the old town. Here you'll find Senado Square, home to lots of tourist spots like St. Pauls ruins (see this post) and lots of interesting side streets. We always stop and buy bags of snacks from famous Macaunese bakeries Choi Heung Yuen and Koi Kei. It's a routine stop  before we catch our ferry back to HK, but I still love taking photos around here. I love the charm of the older buildings and the feeling of stepping back in time.

Salted preserved fish -  a popular gift item!
Macau street snacks
A typical street seller's stall selling lots of handmade almond cookies and candy. 
Yummy Portuguese egg tarts.
This is by far my favourite photo. During editing, I accidentally turned this photo black and white and I am so glad I did. It makes for such an interesting photo.

Old town Macau is awesome.


  1. Love your turquoise shorts! And those egg tarts... yummmm....

  2. Definitely have to agree with u on loving the charm of older buildings! There's so much character that can't be replaced which also makes it mysterious :)

  3. Ohh my gosh, the egg tarts! You have a way of capturing photos that make me hungry. :) Macau looks lovely through your eyes!

  4. Beautiful photos, darling Winnie!

  5. Yes, I love the black and white photo too! This side of Macau looks so... real. Stupid way to describe it, I know, but it looks really lovely and livable instead of the other, bit pompous, side of it.
