The Camões Garden

Chinese Poet Wei Yuan inscribed in his poem On Hearing A Foreign Lady Play the Forte-Piano in a Macau Garden a vivid description of an east meets west encounter at the Camões Garden during one of his frequent visits to the south. He described the Garden as a place with strange rocks and ancient trees, and the existence of Macao as a western city port. He heard how the exquisite western instruments sound harmonized with the bird song in the garden and the lapping of the waves outside. He recited some improvised verses for the foreign host and was presented a foreign painting in return.

This Garden was an important district along the ancient coastline of Macao. Foreigners landed here for fortunes, power, escapes, exiles, opportunities and many more reasons. No matter when and why they came, their enthusiasm and losses, pride and shame, right or wrong doings all stayed and became part of the Macao history as the waves carried them onshore this portal city.

The Garden was also once a place for stargazing. Did astrologers foresee there the many shifts of the Macao coastlines through the stars and know the struggles and conflicts coming with them? Can we predict the future of the Macao coastlines at this point of time where the largest land reclamation project throughout Macao history is in progress?
