I don’t know when and I don’t know how but I’m kinda superstitious somehow. However, the kind of superstitions I believe are mostly the positive ones. I take precaution into not believing the bad ones, in case I did something that according the superstitions are bad luck or evil. Because I believe what you accept and what you take happens.
When I was in Macau last weekend, (thanks Air Asia Zest for flying me there) we went to the premiere attractions in Macau particularly the Historic Center of Macau more popularly known as the Senado Square.
Growing up,I always believe in the power of wishes. Wishes done through wishing wells, water fountains, stars, and churches you visit for the first time. I’ve made so many wishes through them and most of them came true. While some did not, I believe that God and the Universe will give something better and that it will always lead you to where you belong and what you deserve.
I wished for three things, what they are I will have to keep to myself but I will reveal once they are all fulfilled.
Then there was this smaller one, it remind me of something from Italy or something from Serendipity or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
There are two more like this in the area.
Built originally using compound materials like soil and straw in 1622, religious servives in this church stoppedand was transfered to the House of Mercy. The facade is characterized by pilasters and twin belfries.
First built of bamboo and wood before 1560. The new appearance of the church dates back to 1930. This is one of the oldest church n Macau where the Jesuits set up their earliest headquarters in the city.
Members of the Portuguese community back then use the church for wedding ceremonies which gave rise to the Chinese name Fa Vong Tong or Church of Flowers
And in case you visit the place anytime soon. Don’t forget to bring your coins. It’s more likely you will pass by the fountains and wells. It won’t hurt to make a wish or two.
Stay gorgeous everyone!
