Creative Update 62


Olá! my name is Louis from the Glendale Design team,

During my vacation in Hong Kong, I took a rare trip.  This is the 1st time that I came back to Macau in ages.  Most of the current news about Macau is the newly built Casinos like Venetians, MGM & Wynn.  Macau only had one casino: Casino Lisboa back in the day.  These are called Turbojets (fast boats) from Hong Kong to Macau.

The purpose of my trip has nothing to do with Casinos.  Hac Sa Beach is the place that I want to spend time with.


Hac Sa means Black Sand.  It is away from the main island.  I took the free shuttle bus going there.

There are 2 authentic Portuguese Restaurants located on this Hac Sa Beach aka Colonia Balnear De Hac-Sa in Portuguese.  Yes, Macau was a Portuguese colony until 1999.

I pciked the Restaurante Parque Hac Sa and ordered their famous BBQ Pork plus raw Coconut juice.  Nice, huh?

Finally, I was stepping on the black Sand.  Some tourists are having fun inside the black sand.

After a nice long walk on the beach, I took the public bus back to the main island.  I took a little walk on the historic area (town center) of Macau.

Ruínas de São Paulo, in Chinese: 大三巴牌坊 is the symbol of Macau.  It is a must see monument.

This night was getting more & more humid and hot, I decided it is a great time to end the short trip and taking the Turbojet back to Hong Kong.
