Late post today because we didn’t really do anything until night at about 6pm~9:30pm.
From 9th Feb to about 15th Feb Taipei at the Dr. Sun Memorial Hall has a lantern festival type thing~
First, while the photos are uploading let me fill you in on a little theory I have about the youth of Taiwan.
So when you see young students wearing their uniform or something and not at school, they aren’t called Dumbasses, because, Taiwan don’t have Dumbasses.. they’re all actually just.. DANCERS!
Yup that’s right, Taiwan don’t have dumbasses, just dancers.. and I have proof too! You’ll soon see..
So at around 6:15pm we arrived at the station.. it was somewhat different from the other stations.. I wonder why..
We waited a bit for kevin’s friend who was suppose to come.. but stood him up in the end LOL.
So we went to the BIG lantern displays first, made from students ranging from primary~uni etc..
I won’t put them all in, but I’ll throw some of the ones I quite like… the rest will be provided via a link 🙂
And you can get a pretty nice view of..
They even had a..
So the people started flooding in..
I believe that Taiwan is hosting the 2009 Deaflympics so they had some displays for that..
Walked down that a bit..
They had some live perfomances and prize giveaways~!
They had this sort of weird raffle draw thing.. not too sure how it works.. but people line up and choose one of these things with numbers on it..
Smaller displays were next~
We walked up the stairs to the Memorial Hall to check out the hanging lanterns..
So to support my theory.. we looked right and downards..
(Look closely at the bottom of the lanterns)
We turn around and..
There’s more – check the link later 😛
As for inside the hall..
Said to be a revolutionary, political leader for Taiwan..
So just quickly one more..
Then across the road was some market similar to a night market~
Wing saw this, and just wanted to try.. what is it you think? 😛
However.. after some attemps to get the HEAVY turtles..
Think of that, x4 more times haha..
Then wing wanted to try the hoop game~
Had a quick dinner..
Wing just wanted some mushroom soup (Really nice btw)
So this time, I tried the skill testers..

There’s a video to, of this mini light/laser show..
As for now.. that’ll be it.
The next 2.5 days I’ll be away from Taipei! Going to Chia Yi (嘉義) for the weekend to see my uncle’s family and check out Janfushan Theme park 😛
So expect lots of photos for day 18/19/20!
Take care until then 🙂
