I have My Eyes on MACAU

August 28, 2007 at 8:22 pm 1 comment

Lately we’ve been getting a lot of enquiries coming in for The Peak Xperience’s Macau destination photo shoot package. But the enquiries weren’t about availability. They were mostly about pricing and as to why we chose Macau and Hong Kong instead of some other overly publicised destinations like Bali. 

“Can give discount or not? Got anymore hidden charges?” 

“Why so expensive? Bridal studio can give cheaperleh!” 

“Will you be launching any Bali packages?”  

“Why don’t you include air flight?” 

Sure, Bali is a beautiful destination for pre-wedding photography, wedding and honeymoon. For a beach bummer like myself, I love Bali and other equally beautiful destinations in Malaysia like Langkawi, Perhentian, Redang and Sabah.   

For starters, since everyone else is already going to Bali, we figured, hei… why not get your pre-wedding shots taken somewhere else that is different yet affordable. Dubbed the Las Vegas of the East, Macau has all the right settings for a romantic pre-wedding photo shoot vacation.  With over 400 years of history, there are many old Portuguese baroque architectures for beautiful black & white shots. And everyone who has visited there will never fail to take a picture of the famous facade – the Ruins of St Paul’s as a ‘proof’ that they have indeed been to Macau, including mua!  

Ruins of St Paul

 Did you know? St Paul College Cathedral was built from 1582 to 1602 of which during this period, it was the largest Christian church in Asia.

 But these are not all that Macau has to offer. Get your shots taken around the ‘world’ at the new HK1.9 billion Macau Fisherman’s Wharf. Occupying a whooping area of 111,500m2, the Macau Fisherman’s Wharf is located within minutes from the Macau Ferry Terminal, combining  entertainment, retail,  food, hotel and marina facilities in one place. Photos courtesy of Macau Fisherman’s Wharf, take a look at some of these theme sites and let your imagination run wild.

You can’t find weed here… but it looks just as good as Amsterdam.

Located along the Cotai Strip, not only do they have 3,000 luxury suites, they are also the world’s biggest casino with some 600,000sqft of gambling space, which is roughly five times the size of Vegas’s state-of-the-art gaming floor.

As with all the trimmings of a perfect location, the most essential bit is an experienced photographer to capture all ye beautiful photos. Partnering Exes-Studio, Patrick, the award-winning photographer with over 19 years of experience will be located in Macau along with his assistant at pre-arranged dates in March 2008.

Expression of the Day

I feel more alive when I’m writing than I do at any other time —except when I’m making love. Two things when you forget time, when nothing exists except the moment—the moment of writing, the moment of love. That perfect concentration is bliss. - May Sarton -
