“ Macau, located on the
southeast coast of China, is a special administrative region of the country.
Being Asia's well-known gambling Mecca, Macau is a place to find the
traditional Chinese culture while enjoying the exotic Portuguese buildings.
The name of the city is derived from the word Magao
(A-Ma Temple), which was the shrine dedicated to Mazu,
a sacred sea goddess respected by the local people. It was said
that in the middle of sixteenth century when the Portuguese first set foot
there, one of the officers asked a fisherman the name of the land. The man
misunderstanding the officer's meaning, answered 'Magao'
- the name of A-Ma Temple in front them. The word became the Portuguese
name for the land and for nearly 400 years, the Portuguese ruled here prior
to Macau's official return to the People's Republic of China on December
20, 1999 as a special administrative region.”

Visiting Taiwan – Experiencing Hakka Culture in Beipu
Beipu is located in the foothills of Eastern Hsinchu
County and is the major Hakka town in the north of the island (Meinong, in Kaohsiung county being the southern town)
and has a population of around 97% Hakka. The Hakka people first moved out
to Beipu about 150 years ago as they were pushed
away from the coastline as the villages became over-populated.
In addition to the many tea houses that line the streets of Beipu there are also countless Hakka restaurants,
too. They do vary in quality from
inedible to incredible so be careful when choosing somewhere
