Coloane Village (路环村)
(Coloane Village)
After finished our breakfast at hotel, we then visit Coloane Village. Coloane Village (路环村) is the place to get a glimpse of Macau's real heritage, away from the artificial tourist attractions built around. It is also the channel dividing Macau from the hills of China proper.

Chapel of St Francis Xavier
(Chapel of St Francis Xavier)
Coloane Village is situated on the southern coasts of the island. Many tourists mention the Chapel of St Francis Xavier is a must-see attraction. Thus, make sure you take some photos of it like I does. Beautiful yellow and blue heritage really attractive.

Coloane Village
The pink building (top left) is actually a police station. Super cute right? Basically all the buildings at Coloane Village is colourful and old school. It is really a unique attraction to visit.

Coloane Village
Actually sightseeing around Coloane can be easily done by bus or on foot within a day. However, leave time to unwind, and to bask in the sun, and explore the other natural beauties offered on Coloane.

One of the must-eat food when visit Macau is Portuguese Egg Tart (葡挞). Lord Stow's Bakery (安德鲁葡挞) is the popular shop which is famous with their signature Portuguese egg tart. This is actually my first time to taste the Portuguese egg tart and I love it. You can see the egg tart texture (from the photo shown above) is so smooth and the taste is so delicious! Really worth to give it a try and strongly recommended!

Finally we are here for Macau Grand Prix open ceremony. Although we can't make it for the Macau Grand Prix actual day but we are blessed to witness all the beautiful race cars and the professional drivers at that day. There will a lot of celebrities to attend and race on that day. I saw some Hong Kong celebrity's Instagram mentioned they will be there. Too bad I'm not there at actual day. My idol is actually will be attending.

Pork Chop Bun @ Seng Lei Restaurant
(Pork Chop Bun @ Seng Lei Restaurant)
Besides of Portuguese egg tart, pork chop bun is another must-eat food in Macau. Finally we tasted pork chop bun from Seng Lei Restaurant (胜利茶餐厅). The pork chop bun is so yummy and the milk tea is just nice. I like the milk tea because its taste not sweet at all. I will definitely revisit again!

Putajanai 不是葡挞
After tasting the pork chop bun, we head to the recent popular shop - Putajanai (不是葡挞) to taste the popular tart. The queue is long and we are lucky we grab the last few tarts! They produce Japanese Portuguese egg tarts with limited quality. Thus, if you wishes to taste it, remember to come early as possible.

Location : 6, Travessa do Matadouro, Macau.

If you watched the famous Hong Kong TVB drama (澳门街) movie version (十月初五) then you will familiar with this street. 十月初五街 is a street with retro style. All the decorations here are so retro. 


You can see all the stall and products are old school and unique. Quite worth to take a walk here if you drop a visit in Macau next time.
