Having dozed earlier last night, we had all the time that morning for a little walk around the St. Pauls Ruins and Koi Kei Bakery in Macau – The only standing Portuguese figure.
The weather was nothing short of muggy.
So we hopped into a bus and took a ride down to Senado square. Walking up the alley, full of distracting shops and fancy food.
The road to the other side of Macau where all the casino lighting rests during the day, is connected via a bridge. The view from exactly this location is a far cry from that in the evening.
Bang opposite the Senado square is the lovely Senado building. Green doors and windows accompany rows of flower pots. Dainty wall lamps in auburn setting in the backdrop of blue motifs ~ such eye candy.
If we were to have a home as big, this rustic updo would be just the brief.
This little box loggia already made us feel at home.
But clinging was the best we could do.
A little further down, is where we really had to come. It was a beehive of tourists.
Ruins of St. Pauls, Macau is the best known landmark around here. Built by the Portuguese in 17th century, it withstood several earthquakes and now stands with support of rods behind the structure.
The themes of scriptures and status within the ruins remain true to religious stories.
The steps of the ruins led our sight straight to Koi Kei, a darling bakery in Macau and HongKong.
Fascinated by the bags carried by every alternate passerby that mentioned specialized in peanut candy, we made a beeline for it.
The rush speaks for itself. The season of Autumn in Macau has a special significance of Spring Moon Cakes. Bakes are passed around to friends and family.
A crackling little place full of almond cookies, chocolates, candies and sweet dreams.
Our basket was filling faster than we thought. The smell of bake wafted endlessly.
Our booty contained almond cookies, peanut candies, the little gift boxes and happy smiles by the time we walked out.
