Hong Kong – A walk in Kowloon area… (1)

This trip to Hong Kong was last year along with my Macau trip and Shenzhen. Guess Hong Kong is smack in the middle  (nearly) of these 2 places.

Anyway not much to tell but just enjoy the snap shots taken…..

Macau – A Ferry Trip Across (5)

This is my final part of Macau before heading back to Hong Kong. If you have not seen my first 4 parts, pls feel free to have a read on them.

Walking through the alley, you will see lot of shops selling dry meat, Portuguese egg tart, almond cakes and egg rolls. Each of these shops are  fighting for customers. Guess when you are selling the same stuff, surely there will be stiff competition among themselves but the ones who gain are the customers. =)

Welcome back!

We are still at Senado Square. Over here I cant stop shooting pictures of the buildings and churches that is along the way to ruins of St Paul Cathedral. Every corner surprises you. You just have to keep your eyes wide open and your camera ready all the while. =)

Well.. I will not describe anymore but you just enjoy the pictures…..

Want more? Here are more pictures from the trip to Macau. It has a lot of nice old Portuguese buildings and churches too. Every corner you walk or head too, the buildings around  are so beautiful that you cannot stop taking pictures of them. (which is what I did =) )

Macau – A Ferry Trip Across (2)

Macau has lots of Churches and old Portuguese buildings. Portuguese words also can be found on their street signs. I really love to walk along the alley and see what is behind and not just the front only.

These are the places where you will see a lot more things  and you can capture the magic moments or scenes.

Here are some from shots.

Macau – A Ferry Trip Across (1)

Last year, I was in Hong Kong with my wife for a holiday, and we decided to take a short day trip (more like a half day trip) to Macau by ferry. In fact you can fly in or even go in style to Macau by helicopter. =)

We left Kowloon area early and went to the pier at Kowloon side to buy our ferry tickets. There are many ferry service providers there so, you can pick and choose the best and or which part you plan to ‘land’ on Macau.  As usual, I let my pictures tell the stories and let you enjoy.
