This is the last episode and effort by Felipe B. Nery to publish the remainder of his poems and essays spanning a period of several decades involving various topics. It covers, to a large extent, the Macanese Diaspora. The Macanese people, through no fault of theirs, are subsequently scattered the world over. They hope, now, wherever they may have settled to be the final home for them and for their children. This is the second book consisting of poems and essays written by Felipe B. Nery for the past decades, which he believes would interest his readers. It covers a variety of topics ranging from health, politics, religion, sports, economics, diseases, foods and so on. These topics are too interesting to be set aside or discard as they somehow touch each and everyone's life, in the process. During the period covered, many things have happened to change the political scenes, scientific knowledge, birth and destruction of nations, such as: The end of Facism, Nazism, partial demise of Communism (in Soviet Russia), takeover of China by the Reds, the end of colonialism, changes occurring in Eastern Europe, birth of a new nation- Israel, wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, the invention of cell phones, advances made in medicines, invention of computers, invention of television, improving the automobiles (also making them available to the average people), improving the airplanes which are now the preferred made of travel. During this period, the Macanese people had to leave Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau, not unlike the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt dubbed Diaspora. The Macanese people are now dispersed throughout the world. We refer this episode to be "The Macanese Diaspora."
