My trip by city bus No. 10A ended when passing Kam Pex Community Center Bus Stop Avenue de Almeida Riberio. Luckily, bus driver allowed me to get off at a T-junction which nice view of Ponte Cais 16 Hotel in its center.
That receptionist seemed to be son of hotel owner. Every question which I threw to him, He always answered easily, “Wait sir, I firtly ask to my mom”. Gosh, very luckily kid who will get a legacy a hotel later….Hahaha
Checking-in finished after I gave USD 16 to get Villa Ka Meng Hotel’s room key.
As easy as clicking my fingers, suddenly my eyes saw big “halal” logo in front of a restaurant. And the surprise was, a Chinese was the owner of restaurant. Loulan Islam is that restaurant name.
With a big smile, he asked what did I want to eat and offered a menu with such effort. His index finger danced around to writing various Chinese alpabhets in the air. My irresistible laughing made whole restaurant visitor happily laugh. Burying my sleepiness which affect me since early morning.
I paid a little more than standard street food prices which I ussually hunt. At least, I got a Halal dish reference in Macao.
Passing at left side of the road….I headed to Senado Square which was very near. But before actually achieving it, I stopped at a money changer to exchange my US Dollars for Macao Dollars.
Finally I set foot in Senado Square, second destination in Macao that I visited.
The uniqueness of Senado Square is its floor motif which seems to be bumpy and identical to white and black color. The square which was full of tourists really showed that this place is a UNESCO historical heritage. It wasn’t a big surprise about its visitors who very crowd.
Classic buildings which adorn every sides of square were be easy targets for tourist’s camera.
Main Square’s wide limited my ability to explore all of it. And then, I sat at its side to hide from sun which very hot.
Chinese tourists: “Malaysian?” A middle-aged man greeted me under a tree which effectively reduced heat of the sun.
Me : “Me?….Oh, I’m Indonesian”.
Chinese Tourist: “Waaa…Indonesian. Nice country”.
Me : “Ever go to Indonesia?”.
Chinese Tourist: “Yes….Bali, Medan and Batam”.
Me : “Great….How about Indonesia?”.
Chinese Tourist: “I Like….I eat Nasi Padang there. Nice”.
Me : “Hahaha….Ya ya ya. The most delicious food in the world”.
Chinese Tourist: “Ever go to China?“
Me : “Absolutely….I will go to Shenzen after my journey in Macao”.
Chinese Tourist: “Ohhoo….Good good. Welcome to my country”.
Me : “Thanks Sir”
Our conversation ended when a woman who I suspected as his wife approached and invited him to continue their seightseeing at Senado Square.

So….If you go there when in Macau….Just enjoy it.
