PHOTO JOURNAL: CHARMED IN MACAU

When I was researching things to discover in Macau, I was surprised to see a lot of options.

I came across this article by Culture Trip, and this definitely gave me a head start on planning our quick day-trip.

TWELVE YEARS LATER, SO MUCH HAS CHANGED.

Hello old friend, we meet again. I carry a lot of fond memories with you.

The last time I stepped foot in your land, I was a clueless seventeen-year-old girl who was so ecstatic of the idea of going out of the country without my parents.

The first time I walked in your paved stones, all I had in mind was to shop and make the most out of my time with my friends and the temporary semi-independence we all enjoyed.
