Yesterday night was spent by having a dinner down the street – 入肉飯 [Mince Roast Pork Rice]+ 貢丸湯 [Meatball Soup] which was very cheap; 50NT each, which is roughly ~$2.30 AUD. Trust me, tastes better than it sounds :).
The night was then spent by watching Bedtime Stories, for freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee which… *sounds good to mmmeeeee hahahaha..
And some Call of Duty 5~
Today was the first day of our chinese lessons.
As per usual I had to wake Wing up again.. reminds me of Albert, geeeeeeeez..
Alright so.. after I had my awesome FROOT LOOPS breakfast.. we head off towards 復興崗 (FuXinGang) metro station:
So that was just outside our apartment place really.. then at the station:
So we got off at 古亭 (GuTing) and headed towards 國語日報 (Mandarin Daily News)~
Actually no I’m wrong, we headed towards a place for WING to get BREAKFAST because he got up SLOW haha. Well after looking around, he ended up getting a steamed bun and drink from 7-11, geez lol.. (*kevin’s edit: not my fault.. my clock laged and was half hr behind..!!!)
Which emphasises the Taiwan jingle for 7-11.. “有7-11怎好~” (It’s so convinient that there’s a 7-11~)
<Interjection> Eh.. the doorbell just rang, went to check it out, and some lady was like “對不起.. T_T” because she pressed the wrong doorbell, lol..
Alright, so back to MY story.. and so in the classroom..
Despite the size, it was really just one on one anyway..
After the first hour break..
Traditional for the win..?
Anyway, after class we went to 西門 (XiMen) because Wing wanted to check out some clothes and I wanted to check that place out myself since it’s like a popular place to hang out for youngings..
And if you turn around from the station entrance..
Now from this position, if you look towards your right..
Alright now.. across the road was a few cows:
By our friends from Nokia~
Ok, so.. entering the main plaza..
Keep walking down and we bumped into this:
Okay, then we decided to get some food after Wing bought some stuff from Baleno and Hang Ten (where Vivian Hsu has done alot of photoshoots for o.o.. all over the store), we stopped by this japanese curry place, and inside was full of like highschool age-ish girls, lol eye candy for Wing 😛
So then my Omlette-Rice dish came~
Then wing’s baked type dish..
Afterwards we walked around for a bit.. we went through this small narrow street which was populated with..
After a bit more walking.. Wing and I kept finding Skill Testers..
Well did he..?
Alright, so.. we found this place called Center Moe Moe:
also written as moé.
And upstairs was a Maid Cafe – I thought only Japan had those..
Just for reference, a maid cafe is where the waitresses dress up in French Maid Uniforms.. doubt any pictures would be allowed, upstairs also sold cosplay uniforms.. scary.. 2100NT for a male school uniform lolol..
Oooooooo we found Easy Way, lol.
The prices are like.. 25NT for small and 45NT for large (that’s like less than ~$2AUD) what a deal, sure beats $4.50AUD!
So he spent about ~200NT today on skill testers alone, and got.. NOTHING..
Anyway, I’ll stop there for now.
