Afternoon Tea - The Terrace @ Pousada De São Tiago

I was recently asked to recommend a place for quality afternoon tea in Macau.  This was a tough question as I usually go to Hong Kong if I wanted a quality afternoon tea.  After searching my memory, Pousada De São Tiago came up... 
Pousada De São Tiago  was originally a fortress built by the Portuguese in the early 17th century to defend Macau against hostile European nations and local pirates, the Fortaleza de Barra was transformed into an enchanting Portuguese hotel known today.
I have not stayed at this hotel and I have only come for afternoon tea at the Terrace.  Nevertheless, I find the place very soothing and it's the first place I thought of if I wanted to go to somewhere quiet.  

(I have heard the hotel is very nice here too... I should have recommended this place to my friend when she asked me where she should stay...  maybe I should ask her if it's too late to change her reservation?)

Anyways, since a picture speaks a thousand words, here's some from my archives :)

Wuyuan, Canola Flower Trip (江西婺源。油菜花) (2)

Wuyuan, Wuyuan, where and how do I begin?  It's my first backpacking trip to rural China (with strangers).  I am grateful that my parents are very understanding and unlike the stereotypical Asian parents.  (Maybe they know I am so stubborn they know they can't stop me anyway?)  It's an eye opening experience and you have to have an open mind for everything because everything can be ridiculous and infuriating if you apply any international standards.

Dragon Palace (金龍軒) - Lunch

As mentioned in my other post, I am a regular at Dragon Palace, both for lunch (dim sum) and dinner (Cantonese cuisine).  Their dim sum is quite popular amongst the locals.  Consequently, it's always crowded during the weekends.

Day Trip - Macau

I am back from my vacation!!  There will be plenty of updating to do~~~ both trips (China + Japan) were awesome and I had tons of fun!  It will take me some time before I organized everything from these trips so please be patient.

In additional to all the traveling, I have been busy showing my friends from all over the world around my hometown lately.  One of the most frequently asked question I get is "what can you do in Macau if you don't want to go to the casinos?"  You may be surprised but there are lots of things you can do in Macau aside from gambling.  Read on for a day-trip packed with my favorite restaurants and point of interests that don't have anything to do with casinos.

The quaint town of Coloane

By the way, I re-joined Instagram again just so I could share with you my travel photos.  (It was the only thing that worked in China that links to my Facebook page.)
