MACAU, SIGHTSEEING #3.

Hong Kong, Day 3 - Macau, Sightseeing #3.

As we come to almost the end of the sweet treats testing lane, we could see the famous sight or landmark of Macau.
At the far distance, there stood the Ruins of St. Paul Cathedral.

A sculpture with a love story? Just wondering.

It was very hot and most of the visitors, including us were keeping to the shade to avoid the sun.

We took a few photos, rested and none of us wanted to climb up the stairs. I wouldn't mind going up the steps but the blazing hot sun kept me from doing so.

And someone remembered something and was so thoughtful about it. While we were resting in the shade, these Portuguese egg tarts suddenly appeared right in front of us. All the sweet treats testing could not be compared to this inviting sight.

We gladly took one each, they were warm and freshly baked, and I took a bite. Hmmm...the pastry was crispy, so flaky and light, and the filling was so smooth and yummy! You must taste it to know what I am trying to describe. Lol! Our visit to Macau would not be complete without these Portuguese tarts.

Some of our friends wanted to visit the A Ma Temple (Ma Kok Miu). Some went to pray in the temple, the others were resting on the benches under the shady trees, trying to get some cat naps. I took an umbrella and went around taking photos.

The top of Macau tower towering over the tree tops.

A short distance from the temple - the Maritime Museum.

World Heritage write up on the historic centre of Macau.

Macau rich with buildings of western designs.

Side view facing the Maritime Museum.

Rickshaws having a rest under the big shady tree.

Here ended our one day Macau trip.

We took a bus to the Ferry Terminal to return to Hong Kong. Looking forward to a scrumptious dinner treat.

And let us not neglect our meeting together,

as some people do, but encourage one another,

especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.

(Hebrews 10:25, New Living Translation-NLT)

  6. What a lovely tour of Macau. Everything looks so beautiful and those Macau Portuguese egg tart looks so delicious. I think I'll try some. I have found a recipe on line for Macau Portuguese Egg Tart. You'll be able to make them yourself. They use puff pastry so what could be simpler!
    Too bad it was so hot in Macau. I bet a Fall or Spring trip would be wonderful. So good of you to take so many beautiful photos to share.
    Hugs,

  11. The cathedral ruin certainly catches my eye- and that's the first time I've heard of an egg tart. I'm so used to tarts as dessert sort of treats.
