為什麼會突然想去士林官邸?記得去年去故宮時,因為過年期間去的,我們一路從捷運士林站走到故宮。所以有經過。當時我就想要找時間來看看。前一天晚上,學生突然打電話來說因為要看牙醫無法上課。禮拜二本來就很閒的我,這下可是一整天都沒課。悠閒的一天,卻因為裝了無限網路後,很容易就變成縱容自我的一天。所以掛完電話馬上很堅決的告訴自己:明天一定不能一整天待在家裡!

What made me want to come here? I remember the 'unforgettable' walking trip to the Palace Museum last year.  We walked because it was during Chinese New Year, and the traffic was terrible.  I saw this place on the way, and wanted to make a special trip some day.  My student called the night before and canceled our Tuesday class due to a dentist appointment.  Tuesdays are usually my easiest days, now that she'd cancel our class, I had the whole day off.  I could stay at home and sit in front of the computer all day and waste this wonderful mid-week holiday, or I could do something special.  Guess what my final decision was!



吃完午餐,又處理了一些事情後一路坐捷運做到士林站。一開始有點搞不清楚方向,但後來漸漸的想起去年去故宮的路程。看到熟悉的景象,也想起了不在我身邊的他。不過我一點都不感傷。因為我知道他過的很好。看到我分享這些照片,他也會很開心。
I started out after lunch, and after taking care of some family business.  At first, I thought I had lost my way, then I suddenly recalled the path we took to the Palace Museum.  I began to reminisce the good-o-times.  But I am not  depressed.  Because I know he's doing very well.  And he would be just as happy to see me sharing these photos.



其實走進去前我根本不知道裡面到底有什麼可以看得耶。只是覺得台北還有很多地方沒有親自拜訪過。這裡交通很方便,才想說趁機來瞧瞧。
As usual, I had no idea what to expect before walking in.  I just thought I might as well visit these places that I've heard but have never seen with my own eyes. 



雖然都是人造的,可是看到這些植物還是很不錯的感覺。
Felt good to see and smell the fragrance of plants.  Does it really matter how artificial it is? As long as there are plants.



每到一個公園,看到露天音樂廳,也都會讓我想起他。
Makes me think of him every time I see an amphitheater....

走過音樂廳,來到了玫瑰園。雖然玫瑰季據說是三月才開始,但已經有許多盛開的玫瑰為我開花囉!
Though rose season does not start till March, many had already opened up their pedals for my sake!





看不懂上面寫的是什麼。可是你們知道的,我很喜歡這種中國式的建築風。
Couldn't and still can't make out what the Chinese says, but you know how I much I enjoy these Chinese style buildings.



裡頭展的是蘭花。逛著逛著讓我想起了安康農場
可能是小時候太常逛泰北的蘭花園了,這一小間展的蘭花,其實一點看頭都沒有。
There were orchids there.  It reminded me of Angkang Farm.
Perhaps too frequent a visit to orchid farms had caused me to feel quite indifferent to this little exhibit.

中式花園。

跟西式花園比起來,我反倒比較喜歡這。
Surprisingly enough, I enjoyed this better than the western style garden.



這是什麼花?
在我看來,有點像『長了翅膀的香蕉』。哈!
I have no idea what this flower is called.  But looked to me like 'bananas with wings'.

其實我沒有把整個官邸都走遍。最主要是因為我背了我的大包包,又花了一堆時間照玫瑰花。再加上禮拜一做的瑜珈喚醒了我全身的肌肉[全身在酸痛的意思]所以就懶得全部逛完。
I didn't actually see the whole place.  I took my knapsack, loaded with books and my trapper keeper, took lots of time taking pictures of roses, and plus the fact I was suffering from the muscle sore from the yoga session the day before.  I got tired and sat down to have my mini-picnic.



回到空曠的露天音樂廳,喝口evian、啃個Subway餅乾...
在隨便亂塗鴉+寫個前幾天看電影的心得...
I came back here because it was wide open.  Enjoying my evian and my Subway cookies.
Scribbled some silly sketches, and wrote out the film review I intended to write....



這天就這麼悠哉的結束了....
Thus ended my day...
