Many of you might think that since I'm so into Thai food, I must enjoy the cuisines from nearby countries as well. But that is quite far from the truth, actually. I had given Vietnamese food some chances, and I just can't seem to fall in love with it. This Vietnamese place has been around for a few decades. It wasn't bad at all, but I just can't seem to acquire the taste for it!

After our wedding reception and registration, we came back to Taichung to stay a couple of days. The main reason was actually to spend some time with a friend who came to our reception all the way from the UK. We took him to Sun Moon Lake the first day, but then even before we arrived, it started pouring! The weather forecast said that there would be showers in the afternoons during those few days. We were still thinking about where we could take our friend the next day, when he insisted on making an adventure on his own. That's how we got this entire day to ourselves. Speaking of these few days, we did have like a week off. But since we knew before that I was pregnant, and we weren't sure how much budget we were going to have after the reception... and that if we had some extra left, we'd like to save it for the baby... so we didn't bother booking anything abroad. (Good thing we went to Thailand the year before! I guess that could count as a honeymoon!)

I found a Thai place on Nangang Road shortly after I started my life in Taipei. It was in a shack at the time, and written on the sign were the words: 正宗泰國菜 (Authentic Thai foood). Seeing from its small scale, I knew that it must be run by Thais, and they probably served Thai people in the neighbourhood. But I never gathered enough courage to give it a try, until my other half and I decided to finally give it a go!

*The following article is about my plans for postpartum care. In Chinese tradition, the entire month after giving birth to a child is crutial for the mother to recover from labour. Therefore, many businesses have developed to help mothers take extra care of themselves during this period. The first part of this article introduces a caterer that helps delivers special meals for the mother during this period. Since the target readers are people in Taiwan, the entire article will be in Chinese (Traditional) only. But should you have any questions, feel free to leave a message in the comment section.
懷孕的初期跟中期常常就有人對我說：很辛苦吼！其實我不覺得辛苦耶～ 直到最近啦！進入到後期之後才知道大家所謂的「辛苦」為何。走路走不動，坐久了屁股麻，躺著仰躺側躺都不是... 想吃多一點卻又老是覺得脹脹的很難消化。站久坐久腳都好容易水腫。還好只有後期會這樣。而且這個時候整屬寶寶最愛動的時候。肚子變得更大，北鼻又在一直動，心情起伏就變得好像也不是自己能夠輕易控制了。準媽咪辛苦，準把鼻也跟著每天被掃颱風尾。只能說，到了後期是真的有辛苦啦！

This was a meal fit for royalty!! It was actually a farewell feast for an Indian friend of ours who had come to Taiwan to study Mandarin, and she was getting ready to embark on a new journey - to Singapore for her PhD. An old professor from uni introduced us, and we were more than happy to become part of her memory of Taiwan. There was a lot of food!! But it was, afterall, a farewell party. So we did want to make it quite unforgettable!

It is a bit strange, that I've been eating a lot of Thai food since I got knocked up. I didn't use to have that much Thai food before! I've been having so much Thai food that the baby's about to become Thai!

上次文中提到的泰國傳統藝術照[點入看舊文]就位於曾幾何時清邁最熱鬧的夜市裏頭。不過就在第一天晚上跟友人吃飯時，她就提醒我，現在的Night Bazaar已經不比從前了！東西不多，還是一樣貴，人群也逐漸變少了。現在只能拿來騙騙不知情的旅客。而現在正夯的，則是位於Thapae城門周圍的Walking Street。朋友再三叮囑我一定要去！把我們載回飯店的一路上說了一共有十次之多吧！既然這麼堅持，我們當然是要來看看！
The last Chiang Mai article I posted was about the photo shoot in traditional Thai clothing [click to see]. The place was located within the 'night bazaar'. Upon dinner on the night of our first arrival, my friend told me that we might as well skip the night bazaar. There were not as many vendors, and the stuff sold there were still just as expensive (rip off). The place to go now, was the Walking Street by the Thapae Gate of the moat. During the drive back to the hotel, my friend must've said ten times that we simply must go there! So, there was absolutely no reason why we should skip this so-called 'Walking Street'.
