Prepaid phone sim / 預付電話卡

Yesterday, I went to the four main telecom companies in Macau and have gathered the prepaid sim information.  Wherever I go, I must buy a phone SIM card to get around, so I can use the google map, search for information, and most importantly stay connected on my Facebook, WeChat,  instagram so and so etc.

You can buy these prepaid cards at 7-eleven or OK convenient stores. I think CTM do have phone SIM card vending machine at ferry terminal and airport, but quite often out of stock. If not, you might as well need to go to their store to buy. All these four telecom companies have branch stores that are with 10-20 minutes walk away from Senado Square.

I have highlighted each company SIM card details as below, which you may refer to my recommendation if you are staying in Macau for 1 – 3 days. After the chart, I have attached the data plan images, and the source link which you can explore for more details.

Where are the recycle bins?

It popped up to my head to talk about recycling because I have a friend who is a recycler and she have been to various cities that are with strict rules to do recycle. If you have been to Japan, Korea, or some other countries, which they do charge for household garbage, you may see their strict rules of recycling collections.

However, Hong Kong and Macau is different. Continue reading “Where are the recycle bins?”
