Viva Macau: Macau Fortress

Inhale the stunning view of Macau’s concrete jungle after a heart-stopping climb on the way to the top.


Just a few steps away from St. Paul Ruins is the historic Macau Fortress (sometimes called Monte Forte and Fortaleza do Monte in Portuguese). It has been a silent witness of Macau’s rich colonial past over a hundred years ago and has claimed a spot as one of the the must-see tourist attractions in the country.


Visitors flock to Mount Fortress to see what’s on top and since it’s just a stone throw away from the famed Ruins.



The entire landscape of the park which is covered with lush of trees and patch of green grass was absolutely lovely and totally refreshing to one’s eyes. A morning run along the path or a leisurely walk with your adorable dog would be a perfect activity in this venue.



Wooden benches are also available to provide comfort for every visitor’s tired feet. A good place to relax while enjoying the beautiful scenery below.


Cannons bigger than us and tainted walls  heaves an old and historical ambiance that is what the fortress trying to depict.






Perched on top of the hill is the Macau Museum (Museu de Macau in Portuguese).  From what I heard, it holds a variety of galleries that features Macau’s traditions, culture and history. Should we have more time, we could have explored what’s inside of this building.


Along with the crisp air that filled my lungs, the view from the top is a glimpse of Macau’s everyday living. Bunch of glorious casinos, gray-colored apartments and an average neighborhood. There’s nothing much to do in the area but I still consider Macau Fortress worth a visit.


Getting here:
From St. Paul Ruins, follow the green post signs leading to the Fortress.

A Letter for the Man I Love

IMG_5930_final 28 moonlit nights ago, sitting beside you over the infinite stretch of gray sand and hearing the passionate waves in La Union, I made a promise.

To myself and to you.

And that was the beginning of our romance and lifetime of togetherness is already brewing right there and then. Time is flying by so fast and day by day I got to taste the best feeling in the entire universe. Magnificent laughter, copious amount of fights, high on life and chasing dreams. A perfect balance and I am not complaining. It’s all I ever need and I am grateful for every single moment of my stay here on earth. Future for us seems more than bright, it is golden. And I couldn’t be happier. I found a gem in our relationship.

The day that you came into my life is also the day that I realized that there’s no such thing as alone. And the beauty of finding someone I can’t possibly imagined has finally arrived. The love and magic that’s rushing through my veins all the way to my fingertips when I’m with you is strange, enigmatic and indescribable and I am thanking God and you for drenching me with this feeling of joy and euphoria.

1354 kilometers.
Blanket of stars.
Glorious sunsets.
Deep blue seas.
Millions of human race and beautiful dawn.

That’s the distance between us.
But, I don’t feel it.

Because you, my bunch of happiness is here, right where I etched you at the very core of my heart and every cell of my skin. And no matter where I am or who I’ve become, I know that I am whole. I know that I am home.

To the man who has made me feel connected to another human being more than anyone else, Happy Valentine’s Day. I’m looking forward to celebrate hundreds of Valentine’s days with you, still forever in love.

I love you.

Yours forever,
The woman you prayed for
