Macau: East Meets West

Here are some pics from my trip to Macau and Hong Kong over the holidays......

This is the Senado. At night. It's the Old Portuguese quarter of Macau and town center.

We had a celebrity sighting, Jay Cuenca (I don't really know him but they said he's an up and coming actor in the Philippines). That's Yaya (Nanny) Jona with him in the pic.

Check out the Disney Line of the Hongkong MTR system!!!!

The Ruins of St. Paul church which was built in the 1600's by the Japanese Christian exiles under the supervision of a Jesuit, Carlo Spinola. Only the facade remains from a fire in 1835. The backside of the church is now a museum and the facade has been the symbol of Macau

The Library

Take a look at the Portuguese tiles!!!!

The Senado square and it's old buildings

Tiles act as cobblestones in this quarter. I don't know why but this part reminds me of Las Ramblas in Barcelona.
