Leaving 八里



Cape No.7

Official Movie Trailer

There was a great hype about this movie in Taiwan. Almost every Taiwanese will ask me if I have watched this movie. So to satisfy my own curiosity and their inquiry, me and my friends decided to watch it at the cinema while we were at XiMenTing.

Photo taken using my w810i

Movie tickets are priced at ~RM20. Expensive...but boh pien....

Details of the movie ~ [please click here]

It has broken all movie records in taiwan, left right up down... so my verdict of the movie...

It's a good movie overall. The thing that I like about this movie is that it brings out the emotions, the music and the wonderful beaches at KenTing (墾丁) Beach. To all of you movie buffs out there, this movie is certainly a catch. (Enjoy Chie Tanaka's accent... me likey)

Enjoy the following OST from Cape No.7


I think the Italian government is so gonna kill me for pushing the leaning tower of Pisa.

Gosh it's tough...

Dream Mall

Dream Mall - This has got to be the biggest shopping mall in the whole of Taiwan PRC. It is located at KaoHsiung.

I reached there at around 5pm and check out the beautiful skyline...

I simply fell in love with the sky here in Taiwan. (Please note that all these photos are unedited, no color boosting or saturation or contrast adjustments made)

I miss Taiwan...

Where Art Thou?

Took this shot while I was in the car (travelling at 80km/h) on my way back from 淡水 to 新竹along the coastal line.

I just love the blue blue sky.

Note: Photo was cropped but unedited.

Cold Again

According to the weatherman, it's gonna be a cold day in Taiwan.

During the day, the temperature for Taichung is between 16-26 degrees Celsius.


But During the night, temperature would drop to 16-19 degrees.


Sigh, I think I had better get myself another fuzzy warm jacket.

The Knot Was Tied

Wendy, my secondary classmate just got married/registered.

I have known Wendy since Form 1 back in SMK Batu Lintang. She came into our class in the 2nd semester. Along the 5 years of secondary school life, we got along pretty well. I'm really delighted with her taking this big step into a new chapter of her life. I wish Wen and her hubby many happy years to come.

Wen and Ming - don't they look blissful?

I regret that I will not be able to attend her wedding dinner reception on the 23 Nov (yeah, I'm still in Taiwan), but she has all my best wishes in her new journey with Ming. Will catch up with you guys when I get back next year.

I Caught Sunrise

I woke up at 6am this morning. Went to the bathroom to brush my teeth but check out what was on display...

I quickly brushed my teeth and grabbed my camera and snapped away. I have never seen sunrise here in Taiwan before so I was pretty excited. As the ray grew stronger by the second. Suddenly the sun came into view and boy it was bright. I took a couple more photos after that because it was just too bright to shoot directly into the sun.

(from left to right clockwise: 蜜梨 honey pear,恐龙蛋 imported date,香瓜 mini honey dew,芭乐 guava)

I had the chance to buy some fruits from a fruit shop here in Taichung. They look like "our" fruits in Malaysia but I must say these fruits cost me a bomb.

NTD$169 (~RM18) in total! In Malaysia, you can get all these fruits for less than RM10.

Today's weather forecast (Courtesy of Central Weather Bureau of Taiwan)

Finally, the long awaited (not so welcome) autumn is here. The temperature here at Taichung has dropped to 20°C now. Brrrrrr....... We are all lazy to go outdoors now because it's just too cold. Guess I can finally pull out my jacket from the bottom of my suitcase.

Bag of Chips

I bought this bag of potato chips from Costco. It's a huge bag of chips.

I am not kidding you when I say it's a HUGE bag of chips... see...

And it only cost me NTD100 (~RM11).

I love Taiwan!

The best thing about the whole showcase is that these cars had their engines on. So imagine 9 masterpiece of car engineering blowing their engines all simultaneously...that's about 3000 ponies.
