Five...four...three...two...one!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Not being a big fan of large crowds of people, I much prefer counting down quietly at home. This year, however, due to a request of a very dear friend, I had no choice but to countdown outside of home. However, counting down wasn't her real agenda...
To ensure that she got on the coach to Taipei on time, my friend had skipped dinner. The first thing we had to do one we'd reached 2011, was to eat. Because the night was still young...
Having already had dinner, I only had a few small bites, thinking more calories will help me keep warm for the entire night.
Then, comes the night adventure of Taipei.

說好的五度呢？What happened to the 5 degrees Celsius as promised?
