This is a popular place among uni students. The reason is because, other than it's delicious food, the price is affordable to most students. I'm not sure what kind of cuisine you'd categorize Kimos as, but does it really matter? So long as the food is great, I think you're missing the point if you become too obsessed with categorizing the food they sell.

This meal would not exist, if it hadn't been for my extremely high-spirited friends who had so 'considerately' forgot that their visiting vegetarian friend had not yet had dinner...

I'd seen pictures of 'Salt Mountain' before, and I had never imagined it to be so 'yellow'!! What we saw before our eyes was so disappointing, especially since we had driven for so long to see it, AND almost got lost on the way.

Someone said to me, ages ago, that the people that you go to college with, will be your friends for life. At the time, the idea was pretty elusive. After graduation, I still found it hard to believe, as everyone was dispersed into different parts of the country. How is it possible to remain friends with people who live so far away from you, and have different jobs? Well, after this day, I understood. It really depends on your definition of 'friend'. You don't have to meet regularly to call someone a friend. You can meet a person every day, but only consider them an acquaintance. But the people with whom you share common memories, who you think of every now and then, THEY are the friends that will always 'be' with you, because they remain in your heart until the end.

This gorgeous piece of art work, Dome of Light, by the Italian artist Narcissus Quagalita, stands in the midst of the Kaohsiung metro, Formosa Boulevard Station. There are four parts to the work: water, earth, light, and fire, all of which depict the process of the universe. Seeing that the Chinese name of the station literally means 'Beautiful Island', I believe there isn't a better place for this artwork to be displayed other than here.

Photo of Central Park Station.
Since the completion of the Kaohsiung Rapid Transport, this is the first time I'd ever been on it. Compared to Taipei MRT, I think they were fortunate to have a model preceding them. The whole system seems clean, spacious, and comfortable. Probably because it was constructed after Taipei MRT, they made a lot of 'improvements', if you will, to the system. I actually enjoyed my ride on it very much, despite the inevitable faults that every system is doomed to have...

Almost anywhere you go in the UK, you can be sure to find some interesting history behind the place, the area, or the building. Bute Park is a large area of parkland in the core of Cardiff. Situated amidst a whole range of historical sites, including Cardiff Castle, it seems to be the perfect place for an easy weekend getaway.

After one whole day of cruising around Cardiff, we both got hungry, for obvious reasons. Keep in mind that everything you have seen so far on Cardiff, were all done with in 'one single day'! So imagine how hungry we must had been by the time the day had ended!
So my mate asked me what I felt like having, and I thought, the best cuisine to have would be Thai food, seeing that we met, grew up, and went to school together in Chiangmai! It's already a miracle that we were meeting in far away UK. To top it all up, we are going to reminisce the taste of Thailand together!

Doctor Who? 'Doctor Who' is a British sci-fi TV programme produced by the BBC (Read more). I got hooked to it while I was 'supposedly' studying hard in my little cellar back in the UK. Before I headed off to Cardiff, I was so excited to find out that this exhibition was actually situated in Cardiff. It became my ultimate goal to accomplish while in Cardiff. Fortunately for me, I actually did get to see the exhibition. And what did I think of it? Well, you can read on and see parts of the exhibition yourself, then hear what I really thought of it.

The construction of the Wales Millennium Centre began in 2004 and was completed in 2009. Situated at the Cardiff Bay area, the centre has become a major landmark. Concerts, operas, and other cultural performances are all held here. Not only is this a literal landmark of the area, but also a cultural landmark.

I've already presented this little bus station in two different articles with coloured photos. This time, with my new camera, I've decided to present it in a very different way. This tiny little station may not hold any significance, but to this day, it remains the main hub for the people in Liouguei Township. My memories of the station goes back to childhood, and all the way up to the first time I travelled to visit Grandma on my own. It is a station loaded with memories, and thus worth being captured again and again.

Every time I visit Granny, it's inevitable that I pass by Meinong. However, I seldom get the chance to visit the town itself. I always just go straight ahead to Granny's. This time, we had our own transportation and this allowed us to take unplanned detours and unexpected stops. The picture above is part of the Flower Festival held in the township between February to March (I think). When we drove by the first few patches, we were a little disappointed. However, we eventually found larger patches that was worth a stop.

In this article, I posted a picture of the broken bridge, which was taken two months after the devastating typhoon Marokot. Now, after six months, the road into the village has become a smoother ride, but the bridge that had been washed away, remains far from being rebuilt.
