Henrique Silva, better known by Bibito, is a creative director and graphic designer by training, who made his career in the advertising industry. He lived in Macau from 1990~99 and returned six years ago. His passion for advertising, and also for sailing, divides his professional life between those two occupations, GOLDFISH - creative agency and MACAU SAILING a nautical-tourism and sports company that runs the only existing traditional sailing junk that was built in Lai Chi Vun Shipyards in Coloane. Bibito is also one of the organizers of the famous Macau Jazz • Sunday Sessions... that will come back one of these days.
What’s your idea of a perfect day?
A 15-knot wind, not more than one meter waves, 40 feet of a classic sailboat with a fridge packed with cold beer… and knowing that I don’t need to return in the next six months.
If you could go back in time to any event in history, what would it be?
The arrival of Jorge Alvares. According to history, the first Portuguese to land in Macau. I would go back to that time just to kick his *** and tell him: “with so many nice places around with clean crystal water and beautiful beaches, you choose this?!”
What’s your favorite book?
Nobody can answer that question. There are several and it depends on the moment when you read it or you recall it. But, if you insist… maybe Project Papa by Cliff Simak.
And your favorite singer/ band?
Again, it depends and there are many… but, at the moment… Devendra Banhart. Try : Mi Negrita
Who is your hero?
What can always cheer you up when you are having a bad day?
I’m a very optimistic person and always looking at the bright side of life… no matter what.
What’s your worst habit?
The inability to say NO.
If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Anything from Afonso’s menu.
If you could retire tomorrow what would you do?
Buy a nice sailboat and bye bye.
What’s your favourite place in Macau?
Inner Harbor and Patane
