We took the ferry back to Macau again, & as soon as we touched down, we took the bus to Coloane Village.
It's always nice to take the bus. You get to rub shoulders with the locals.
These are the local Macau people. Look at them. They are so happy & healthy. Must be the tarts.
From the journey, you can get a clearer sense of how fast Macau is developing.
As you go further & further away from the city centre, across the bridge & onto the Coloane island, time begins to stand still again.
This reminded me of Totoro's bus stop.
Coloane turned out to be a quaint little village with a touch of European architecture.
You've heard the theory about how we humans emerged from Africa. Well, this is the place where the Portugese Egg Tart was created.
Apparently egg tart was introduced here in Asia quite recently in the 80s. I was quite surprised by that fact. I thought that it has always been in Asia since ancient times.
And this is the guy who's responsible for it all.
Andrew Stow, The Lord of the Tarts.
And these are the Ladies of the Tarts.
The bakery does carry a limited range of other things like cheesecakes & pastries.
These are Chocolate Pies first created by Andrew Stow in 2003 for his Korean Franchise.
Our mistake was to order these Sweet Mango drinks. They just DO NOT go with egg tarts.
Superbly yummyliciously excellent!
Unfortunately, we can't say the same for the cheesecakes.
How do I put it? They're edible, but they more of a burden, cos you've got to finish them off. And we didn't have hot tea to go with it. Instead, we were having cold mango drinks in the freezing weather.
