Someone said to me, 'I don't think you'll be able to finish your UK journals, ever...' This is true. I haven't even begun writing about my last two weeks in the UK, and now what am I about to do? Head off and load myself with another three-week full of photos and ideas for blog articles.

My first visit to the Taiwan Literature Museum was during the day. It was also before I departed for my MA pilgrimage to the UK. The feeling I have towards this place is indescribable. I will just say that it is this place, that enables me to understand how people feel when I speak of English poets and writers that people wouldn't generally know about. Because know less than a handful of Taiwanese writers.

This is the original 'sesame oil fried rice' that I had often been talking about. I first came here around two years ago, on a pre-departure to England tour around Taiwan. That day, I met up with my old classmate (who I was with on this day, too) and a friend who I'd become acquainted with through blogging. I remember that first visit. The choice of eating here came completely random. She picked me up at the train station, but we had no plans for lunch. As we arrived at our first destination, we got hungry. We saw the sign '素' which was vegetarian in Chinese, and decided to try it out. Amazed at the dish 'sesame oil fried rice', I ordered it, and fell in love with it upon my first mouthful.
So this time round, we were having difficulty deciding what to eat again, so I suggested to go back to this place and have fried rice again. I wanted to see just how different my own fried rice is from theirs. The truth is, forgive my arrogance, but both are just as good.

The Liu Family House is a private heritage site that is free to public all year round, admission free. I would have never known about this place if it hadn't been for my very 'professional' local guide. Shameless to say, I don't know much about Taiwan history, but that does not, in anyway, disparage the beauty of this historical building.

This is not the first time I've written about this DaoXiang. But since I got my new camera, I felt like going back to the same places and retake the photos I've taken before. Plus, the food is really nice here. There is no reason why it only deserves to be 'exposed' once.

Remember that place I went for a meeting in Changhua? [Read more] Well, I didn't know what to say about that place... and I'm not quite sure I like this place more or less than the other. You'll see what I mean if you read on...
