Nice Photo!!!! Wow!

This was the house of my Great Great Grand Aunt from Macau who married a Lacson..It was made almost entirely from materials from Europe. Thousands of crushed eggshells were used as plaster material for the walls.

They burned their own home during the Japanese Occupation so that the Japanese soldiers would not be able to use it as a headquarters. It took 3 days to burn down

Hi RAF, did that very memorable crossing in '07, couldn't believe the sea vessel they use to cross that body of water where the pacific ocean meets the china sea!
