  • Each time you touch a chance to attend, just like travelling abroad is going to visit the Museum of Macau shuttle bus I went to. See the museum itself, nor the burden of ibjangryodo various features. If you visit the Museum in Macau are not much is laid back and not interfere with the picture quietly and even China were exhibited in the old culture of People's Republic of China I do roughly about Macau's culture or was able to tell it was a profitable time. Macau indoor activities too hot weather was one of the most memorable tour.

  • 幾乎從建築物外都無法知道那個是博物館, 推廣看來十分不足, 也不接近旅客常去的著名景點, 應該是十分想看的人才會去. 館外就有巴士站

  • Interesting public space but hardly anyone using the space. Aquascape with fountain and two sculptures formed central pieces for the space. Architecture looked interesting with strong rectilinear shapes and detailing.
  • If you love ART, come over here to experience the cultural side of Macau!
  • When you admire the paintings, you can observe some differences and similarities of Western and Eastern. For example, the first picture is called Nanyang Brothers Tobacco Co., Ltd. It is come from China, artist is Ding Song. On the other hand, the second picture is called Portrait of Lady Mary Bruce, it is come from England, and painter is George Chinnery. Second, the emotional quality of the first picture is brightness, while the second painting is dark. Third, the artist of the first picture uses a lot of bright color to paint the picture, so the space of the picture is flat. In contrast, the painter of the second painting uses a lot of contrasting color and pay attention on light, so its space is deep. Forth, the first picture has a poem because Chinese think poems can make the picture become more meaningful. In contrast, the second picture doesn’t have any poem. Finally, the first picture is an advertisement, whereas the second painting is a portrait painting. Although they have lots of differences, they have some similarities. Both of them are drawing people so these pictures are realism, and they are drawn in 19th century.
  • From above we can see that these two images all came from Qing Dynasty. Nevertheless, they have different drawing skills. By contrast, Panoramic view of the Macau more focus on the landscape, but the other one just specific draw the characters. They have totally different drawing style, because the first one is the distant view and the second one is the nearby view. When the Daoguang Emperor met his ministers, in the background of this picture shows the palace in the Forbidden city. The shape is pretty good to illustrate the surroundings. The other one we can see so many vessels located in the river, and these vessels can reflect that it is not the modern society. At the back of the river, we can see many buildings, and the shadow can represent how it is the either near or far. In conclusion, both images has the same points, which are they all came from Qing Dynasty. However, they have different the drawing styles and the concentrations.
  • In the past three months, I had watched two excellent performances. There was the Saxophone concert held at Macau Centre, and Indian dance held at UMAC Student Center. There were similarities and differences between these two performances, which was rather inspiring. Performers stand on the stage and show their talent. The performers’ dedication to their work has really inspired me to better myself with the work that I do. In addition, these two performances were interactive and changed dependent on the audiences’ reaction. In the shows, I was not only watching it, but also participated in it. They had an emphasis on expression of emotion. The performances would drive your thought, so that you would more enjoy the show. Despite the growing similarities between the two performances in the expression of emotions, they had been depicted very differently through the use of music and dance. Saxophone concern was using music to express the feeling whereas Indian dance was focused on the art of body language. Furthermore, the amount of performers differed in numbers. The Saxophone concert is required the cooperation of the group to bring out the story. In turn, Indian dance had two main characters that did not require the cooperation with each other to finish the show. In conclusion, these two performances were similar in the nature of delivering emotions but at the same time were different through their mode of delivery. I much preferred the saxophone performance due to my interest in music over dance.
