I've worked at Nangang for more than three years now, and I've heard about a place where you could drink tea and chat with friends the entire afternoon... but I've only been here myself just recently. The first time was a farewell meal for a colleague. (Yes, they serve food, too. A bit steep, and a bit slow, but the food is quite tasty!). But seeing that was with a big group of colleagues, it was not an ideal chance for photo shooting. This time, the family had come to visit Taipei for the day for early tomb-sweeping. It was a while yet before they had to depart for Taichung. I thought of this place for us to kill some time.

After consecutive postings of food articles, I think it's time to take a stroll. Or else first time visitors will definitely think I'm an alcoholic (am I not?). Although I still have many food articles on the waiting list, I think I'll take a break from the grease, and use this opportunity to introduce to you another beautiful place in Taiwan (there is a reason why this blog is bilingual!)

Sometimes you don't need to go through an ordeal to sort things out. Following your heart often gets things done as well. Our one-day Taichung trip was accomplished in this manner. All we did was wander around. But because we were together, it was the perfect ending to the Chinese New Year's break. We started with beer, and ended it with beer. Allow me to remind you to drink responsibly. Don't drink if you're a minor, and don't drink if you're driving!

Last year, I planned a trip to Hualien and Kenting to celebrate my birthday. As it was my fist time visiting these two places, I wanted to fully experience the feeling of exploring new places. I looked forward to making new discoveries during the trip. Of course, Hualien did not disappoint me. Kenting didn't either. But on the day of my birthday, I wanted to do something really special. After wandering around for a while, I really discovered a place that made this birthday an unforgettable one!

How in the world did I discover a place like this? Let's turn back time to earlier this year - during Chinese New Year's, when the entire family was down at Kaohsiung to visit Granny. After our visit, we wanted to eat something relaxing, satisfying, and not too pricy. But none of us knew Kaohsiung that well. So, I called up a mate back from uni, and ask him and his wife to give us some suggestions. At first, all we wanted was a place to eat. I knew their recommendation wouldn't let me down, but the meal turned out to be way above my expectations!
