Rooftop Live

With Markus leaving Taiwan there are a few activities that we need to clear out of the way before he is granted access to the United States, we have not been the bessst at meeting up, but in the last few days we have made some pretty serious effort to meet up and redress the balance.

I am still a bit groggy from the weekend and lack of sleep, but we had an absolute stormer of a night watching 1976 on the roof of Eslite bookstore. Fighting the elements, we enjoyed a good show, and capped it with one of the funniest moments of Taiwan in months. More to tell later on that one, in case it ruins any surprises in the near future.

Taiwan does pull of some good locations when it wants to!

Yes. I do!

Looks like we got an answer to our big question!

Yes. I do!

There has been more than a little controversy over this proposal... which surprise surprise turned out to be a fake, and an attempt to drum up business for the world's (maybe) tallest building.

The cost for proposing in this way? About 300,000 US$, so you better be sure he/she says yes! (I wonder, is the reply included in the price?).

Marry Me - Diana

Taipei 101 - now available for rent ... I wonder if she said yes?

... Quite a trend of using the world's tallest buildings to propose, eh Ele?! :-)

Raw Thurdays

Thursdays has become a regular eating session amongst my friends and I. In tribute to Nick's very particular stomaxh problem, where he cannot eat cooked food, we have labelled these weekly feasts 'Raw Thursdays'. Just a bunch of guys eating raw food, basically.

It's quite interesting and a challenge to find food that Nick can partake in. Sashimi figures highly in our menu, and this week we headed to one of my favourite little laneside eateries near 101. Excellent ambience at night time, topped off as it is by 101 poking up at the end of the street.

Sadly, the raw food extended into a raw head the next morning, the result of rather too much sake. But that's just a demonstration of the lengths we go to to appease Nick's belly.

Okay, stop now
