When you think of Macau, what comes to mind is casinos, Portuguese buildings and egg-tarts…well at least is does for me. You would never think of derelict factory buildings or sea sinking abandoned buildings, it’s not something that they put on any tour that’s for sure.
So imagine my surprise when reaching Macau to be told about Coloane. I’ve been to Macau a few times, through different Avenidas of the Portuguese influenced areas and casinos…lots of casinos. OK so maybe Coloane isn’t secret but not exactly the first thing on the tourist route. It’s the quieter side with more residential areas.
Macau has all of the it’s streets and roads with the Cantonese name and the Portuguese name. Unlike Hong Kong where nearly every street or road has a Cantonese name and an English name. Trust me, in Macau don’t expect the taxi drivers to know the Portuguese names, they will look just as confused as you try to explain in English.
Here’s me in one of the many outfits that day, I loved the mix of textures, greys and blacks contrasting with my bright red lips.
This is the designer and one of the owner of L.A.C.Y Boutique Milk, the tall person standing next to her is me.
Devil red lipstick to go with these daring outfits 🙂
I don’t quite remember how many outfits that we shot that day but I definitely remember the background, an abandoned factory building. I loved the urban industrialised feeling, cannot wait to see how it turns out.
Here’s just a sneak peek from the camera view of one of the first outfits and locations, a woodshed:
It was a super chilly day but worth the trip. I really look forward to the photos and enjoyed my unusual day trip to Macau.
