Coated Sweetly

December 27, 2010 – Somewhere near to Some place, Taipei, Taiwan

Geesh, I don’t remember where this was but it’s definitely in a market. =S

I thought that’s some kind of a candy molded in big rounds of strawberry-flavored sugar but only to found out there was tomato inside of it. Its juice drooled over the stick after my first bite.

Most of the hostels seem to have bean bags in their living room. Using these in Philippines is not a good idea because its leather material.

Waiting

Found granny sitting on a pole while waiting for the stoplight to go green.

Me? I was looking at her after I took this.  Nyahahehe!

Juifen Market

December 29, 2010 – Juifen Market, Taiwan

Traveling with a tour package probably gives us 3-4 hours to shop and eat but traveling with our personalized itinerary gives us ample time to enjoy the market and know the country.

Much of country’s culture is found in the market. What type of food they eat, how the local converse, how they work and why they strive to, what clothing they wear, what things they consider needs and wants, how costly they live their lifestyle and how they help each other out.

Market is full of what-happened-and-really-is-happening-and-would-like-to-happen about the country. (that’s really loooong hyphenated words, hahaha). I found out that Taiwan is an addict for food. They can really cook and make up food for a number of people who prefer different type of foods. I found a store that sells tens of dried mushrooms displayed in huge sacks. I barely can see the seller with them!

What market have you already been to and what did you find out about the country?

Bathtub

December 26, 2010 – Modern Toilet, Taiwan

Heeeey! Another one from the very well-recognized toilet from all the toilets in the world!  One table is bathroom tub and a shower on the wall. And there are even dried rose petals and letters in it.

Amazing and wild idea!
