What ALL people born on the year of 1990 do:

Even when we are on vacation, we know which style we want to drive!



the Water horse is never there.

the Fire horse will be happy.

Earth horse will be food motivated.

Metal horses know their job and are happy after they learned.

A wood horse is athletic but they can be more bossy than a human driving.

2017 in photos

Reviewing all my digital photos of the year, I realized how much I changed, and how much God had blessed me. When we remember to let Jesus in, our troubles are solved.

Go through the photos and enjoy my overall balance of 2017.

Within this year I:

Worked in the University studio, and by the end of the year a total of 175 graduate students had passed under my apprentice supervision.

Went to Thailand for a short trip with my bestie ‚̧

Went to Brazil to see my family after over a year of skype calls. Spent my 27th birthday very close with the ones I love.

With some free time, and a heart still in pain and doubt, I had an amazing re-connection with my favorite sport, showjumping. In a few weeks went from scratch to jumping 1 meter high. Had a wisdom tooth removed in between the training. Yes, nothing could stop me.

Step in South Africa, being Africa the 4th continent I ever set feet.

Went back to follow up with the sport highlighted in the city I live, horse racing. And made even more friends, some of the best so far, I dare to say ūüėÄ

A visit in Shanghai with the Soft Tennis Club from University of Macau for cultural exchange with some of my finer friends.

Lost count on how many times I been to Shanghai, but in 2017 was the first time I went up the radio tower.

Saw Brazilian soccer team Grêmio win a championship in China, and I had close participation in collecting data for the team head.

Participated in the EU Macau Model 2017 where I gained so much knowledge in practice. One of the best experiences I had in the political sphere.

If it wasn’t enough, I competed in the official half-marathon of Macau. And, while some of my closest friends would tell me I couldn’t stand until the 5th Kilometer, I accomplished the whole course of 21 km with success. Running + walking, took me 2:30h. Super intense, but as well super addictive.

Had one of my besties leaving the country for good, and with that came a complete withdraw from parties.

The last two months of the year were amazing. Met new people and created real and strong relationships, crazy people who like to wake up as early as I: with the roosters, symbol of the year we leave now behind.

Guess Macau is not that bad after all. For more that I complain sometimes, I know that I will miss this land whenever the time comes that I need to leave…

Wishing 2018 be as good as ‚̧ Simple as.


2016 – First chapter

Couldn’t be happier with my new life

In less than a week my life completely changed. After 2 months trying to negotiate at my former company about new working schedule or any better working conditions, I needed to take the tough decision to quit.

I could never have imagined that it would have been so tough. But I knew it was the right thing to do at the moment I got a good news from the University I was already studying my Masters degree. They got me a scholarship and so I needed to review my whole calendar and again, leave some things behind. My friends ask me, did your colleagues cried when you left? I say, nooooo, I did! hahaha

It was sad for me, because I have been working with amazing people in China for the past 3 years. And I learned so much from them. Even on those days I wanna kill someone at a meeting table, even those days are precious.

Anyhow, that was one day I simply said to myself: “enough”. I wasn’t feeling like they were caring enough, and I didn’t want that for my life anymore. No space for growth, and was an act of respect.¬†I staid one day again with absolutely nothing to do in my apartment. And it didn’t make me comfortable. The next day everything changed. Suddenly I was at my new job, which is this incredible part time job at the University’s video lab and communication office. People are even more amazing, and that is making everything in my life go on smoother. ¬†I am so lucky to have this opportunity. And in some point of view it can be really scaring because I am again leaving a city where I already knew everything. The pros and cons. Now everything is new again.

I like this feeling of freedom, which can be scary for some people or even seam some kind of¬†craziness. But that’s how I learned to live my life. Letting go.

The House of Dancing Waters

Esse √© um dos espet√°culo que n√£o podem faltar no seu itiner√°rio se voc√™ estiver de visita ao sul da China. J√° assisti a esse show, e recomendo a todos que est√£o de passagem pela China. √Č um¬†dos maiores espet√°culos de √°gua do mundo. The House of Dancing Water, um misto de circo, teatro, show e musical, √© um espet√°culo √ļnico que enche os olhos dos espectadores. Uma produ√ß√£o de mais de 250 milh√Ķes de d√≥lares, que conta com 77 performances e 125 t√©cnicos de mais de 18 pa√≠ses diferentes.


O palco redondo, √© uma estrutura √ļnica, constru√≠da especialmente para esse show. O ch√£o sob os p√©s dos artistas √© hora √°gua, hora s√≥lido, e requer uma habilidade e coordena√ß√£o impressionantes. A destreza dos profissionais √© singular e faz cair o queixo da plat√©ia, desde o primeiro minuto do espet√°culo at√© o desfecho. Segundo o site oficial, a “piscina” tem cerca de 26 p√©s (8 metros) de profundidade e comporta aproximadamente 3,7 milh√Ķes de litros de √°gua, que √© o equivalente a mais de 5 piscinas ol√≠mpicas. Durante o show, 11 esta√ß√Ķes hidr√°ulicas transformam a piscina em palco em menos de um minuto.


Al√©m do palco, 17 metros acima do n√≠vel da piscina, existem 40 guinchos que carregam e descarregam os artistas¬†durante o show. √Č de onde os acrobatas¬†descem pendurados por cordas para realizar as manobras. No palco existem 239 jatos que d√£o vida √† √°gua durante o show. As fontes de √°gua podem chegar a 18 metros de altura, e tem for√ßa suficiente para machucar os artistas, se lhes pegarem desprevenidos. Pra quem ficou curioso, assitam o trailer no Youtube com o making of da produ√ß√£o.

Dica para tirar maior proveito do espet√°culo:

‚ú¶ Escolha assentos com melhor custo-benef√≠cio. Um espet√°culo desse porte requer um investimento relativamente alto, e voc√™ ir√° querer tirar o melhor proveito dessa experi√™ncia. Se voc√™ tiver condi√ß√Ķes de comprar os ingressos na √°rea VIP, voc√™ ter√° a melhor vis√£o do show. Se prefere poupar um pouco de dinheiro as cadeiras da √°rea A tamb√©m trazem uma excelente vis√£o. Se tiver como escolher a √°rea das cadeiras de n√ļmero 401 a 428, em qualquer altura ir√° ter uma experi√™ncia, similar √† da √°rea VIP pois essa √°rea tamb√©m fica bem de frente para o palco. Lembre-se de que se voc√™ optar por um assento muito pr√≥ximo do palco, h√° uma chance de se molhar.

✦ Chegue cedo. Se você tiver ganho o brinde na compra do seu ingresso, para tirar a foto com efeitos especiais, você deve pensar em chegar com uma certa antecedência ao show. A foto somente pode ser tirada antes do início do espetáculo e as filas na China, especialmente para um evento desses, podem lhe fazer desistir de coletar o brinde.

‚ú¶ Leve patacas com voc√™. Macau utiliza um dos sistemas monet√°rios mais desvalorizados da China. As MOP (Macau Patacas) valem menos que a moeda em circula√ß√£o na China continental (YUAN ou RMB). Dentro do casino as moedas s√£o aceitas como valendo um por um, e voc√™ n√£o vai querer pagar mais caro na sua pipoca. Leve com voc√™ o dinheiro local, MOP ou ainda em √ļltimos casos, HKD que tamb√©m costuma ter uma taxa similar √†s MOP.

‚ú¶ Utilize o shuttle bus. A maioria dos casinos oferece √īnibus fechados gratu√≠tos para levar os visitantes que vem da fronteira entre China-Macau at√© os casinos. Ap√≥s cruzar a fronteira de Gongbei (principal fronteira para quem vem de Zhuhai), do seu lado esquerdo procure pela parada de √īnibus do City of Dreams. Se estiver usando a fronteira de Hengqin, do lado de fora tamb√©m h√° shuttle bus para o City of Dreams.

✦ Certifique-se de que tem visto para visitar Macau. Brasileiros não precisam de visto para visitar Macau. A entrada é permitida para ficar até 30 dias. Porém ao visitar Macau, você corre o risco de não conseguir voltar para a China se o seu visto chinês não tiver mais de uma entrada. Consulte o consulado chinês ou sua agência de viagens.

Maiores informa√ß√Ķes sobre os ingressos e programa√ß√£o voc√™ encontra direto no site: http://thehouseofdancingwater.com/en/info/seating/ ou procure informa√ß√Ķes sobre pacotes na sua ag√™ncia de viagens.
