Travel Macao Haiku - The Portuguese Streets - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

streets with portuguese names
lead us to shops
with English names

Most of the roads and places in Macao still have Portuguese names as Macao was under the Portuguese until the late 90s. Most of the modern shops though are taking English names as they are more fashionable. So you really have to go through all those Portuguese streets to get to the English shops.
