I’m arranging my bookshelf looking for some useful or inspiring and not too old books which can be donated to the Central Library. The library has its own instruction. Books with publish date more than a decade or books with are not accepted. I have to choose my books carefully, trying my best to match my donations to what the library asks for.
After a month, the library will send letter to books donors informing them which books are accepted. Then, people can choose to go collecting back the books that are not accepted or choose to remain in the library letting the library to sell those books for charity. 😀
The ancient temple of Na Tcha will soon be holding a ceremony for the annual event of the year – Feast of Na Tcha. The ceremony and the worship ritual will be holding at 11 o’clock at night on 24th of June of this year. The ritual for Na Tcha celebration has a history of decades, and its activities include dramas, grabbing firecrackers, lifting the Na Tcha statue and so on. The main activity is “Procession of Prince Na Tcha the Great.” On the following day, on 25th of June, at 10 a.m., a team consisting of more than a hundred of people starts the procession from the Na Tcha Temple and proceeding to Rua de São Domingos, Rua de Cinco de Outubro, Rua dos Mercadores, Senado Square (for 30 minutes) and St. Domingos Square, before returning to the temple. Meanwhile, the other temple of Na Tcha, located near the Ruins of St. Paul, will hold a series of ritual and parade as well, but with a different schedule, to celebrate the Feast of Na Tcha . 🙂

Have a great weekend everyone! 😀
Most of the tourists think that the “Na Tcha” Temple located behind Ruins of St. Paul is the only temple of “Na Tcha” in Macau. In fact, there is another temple of “Na Tcha” which is situated at Calcada das Verdades, about 10 minutes of walk from Ruins of St. Paul (shown in the picture). The difference between both is that the former is located in tourist hotspot and the latter one is located off the tourist track and it has the rock in which Prince “Na Tcha” used to appear in apparition.
When you get in the temple of “Na Tcha” at Calcada das Verdades, first you may hear mantras play in a loop. Spiral scented candles hanging on the ceiling and the walls fill the atmosphere with peaceful vibes providing a tranquil and relaxing feeling to those who are around.
