My most pleasant memories always lead me to Macau (erstwhile Portugal colony in current China), with all my family on an assignment with United Nations University.
We decided to take souvenirs which would be useful for us always. We chose two such amazing pieces of Chinese culture (and of course plenty of porcelains): the Abacus, and Chinese chopsticks. We (my children and I) even spent several weeks trying to master the abacus. We took an abacus for each one of us.
My wife joined us when we had training sessions on the use of chopsticks ! We bought a pair for each one of us.
We will always remember our visit to Macau.
I wish we had an “action replay” button in our life. Till then, Macau will be in my dreams every day.
