this weekend, macau put on its finery (complete with disneyland beasts, electric plum trees, paper lanterns and oversized gold coins) and rolled out the red carpet for the year of the tiger. today, i take you on a short walk through the city centre, under a slight drizzle.
in the meantime, the lobby of my building pays the ultimate homage to cultural syncretism. under the watchful eye of the god of wealth, traditional lai si hang from the branches of an engineered kumquat tree - while nearby a music box continuously renders a happy medley of 'hark the herald angels sing', 'o tannenbaum' and 'jingle bells'...
