Senado Square Reviews
Walking the night streets of Senado square Aug 03, 2014
Macau is said to be the Vegas of the East, where either riches are found or lost.It is a favourite destination for many thousands of people who frequent its casinos day in and day out by air, sea or land; just to gamble on their wealth in their hope to make a quick fortune.To some who may be a few; they travel to see and cherish its history culture and heritage.To both and may be to all, Macau gives them what they deserve and imprints upon them its seal of destiny in their passport called life.
Night life to most of the people in Macau would be to spend their time within the walls of fascinating Casinos, smoking, eating, drinking, watching semi nude dance shows, witnessing the roll of the dice or the opening of cards and the change of fate as luck smiled over some or may be upon the banker.
I watched the stress, strain, laughter, grin and all the changing emotions as fortunes changed, playing its game while painting colors and brushing its strokes upon the faces of the gambling gamers. Seeing enough of the drama of the agony and the ecstasy I walked into the streets of Senado square and behold a different world fascinated my senses.Colorfully lit Casinos and other buildings, street lights, enticing signboards, decorated shops, restaurants, parks, churches and homes displayed the reality of life.Walking the streets along with many other people, in the glow of the colorful night lights was a beautiful experience and peering into its shadows hiding the dirt portrayed the beauty of the city as its Casinos did unfurl the glory of the winners and hide the misery of the losers.The walk made me think about the variety of life. I chose a nice restaurant to dine fine Portuguese cuisine sipped a couple of beers and the scenes of the early night once again overwhelmed my thoughts as I drifted into sleep that night.
I toured the city the next morning and two of the city's landmarks left an indelible mark in my mind.One was the crumbling ruins of the church of St.Paul and the other was or I should say the sprawling and tall monstrous looking buildings housing the paradise of the gamers. It portrayed two different worlds where and in which each among the people searched for their destiny following their own dreams which they believed in as their own beloved religion.
