Fun Taipei

Tip: always have a spare battery for you camera. That day in Taipei I was
forced to charge mine at a shop. I was 2 hours cameraless :c
 I was so intensively photographing all day, my battery run out in the evening. Bless the nice shopworkers for letting me to charge at their shop!


Here are another batch of Taipei photo's, after all "One picture is worth ten thousand words".

Breakfast! 

Had breakfast but already hungry again when seeing this bakery/pastry shop. 

 The cutest metro token so far - my experience with the metro in Holland is nothing compared to here: people actually waiting politely inside the lines (!) without pushing and battling who's getting first. Bravo. 

 Inside the "Memorial Hall Chiang Kai-shek" - these guards are standing like statues. Their weapons are razorscary... didn't dare to stand any closer

 Guestbook: shamelessly self publishing, har har har c:

Unlike Hong Kong streetfood-stalls are illegal, I love Taiwan for not forbidding it!

 Cute manhole. 

 Lightstick sellers at '101 Taiwan', the second largest building in Asia.


Who can teach me to disable the 'word verification' at comments? Thanks! :)

I'm Feeling: Good!
Music: Tablo feat. Taeyang - Tomorrow Can't get this Korean song out of my head... Tablo used to be in the Korean band 'Epik High'
Food: leftover sushi
Drink: water

  2. Photos do speak a thousand words. They are such lovely shots of the city!

    To disable word verification, you have to go back to the old interface (it's okay, you can always change back easily), and got to settings > comments > show word verification for comments? > no
    and you're done! hope that helped :)

  4. To get rid of word verification, go to settings, then comments and there will be a question asking you if you want it or not. Hope this helped! ^^

    I really want to go to Taiwan now because all your photos have made it look like so much fun! The Chiang Kai Shek memorial looks interesting, especially since my great grandfather was one of his generals. :)

  7. The guessbook doodle is so cute! haha. I always love looking at your pictures always so fun!~

    I love love love Tablo~ Ahh~ I fell in love as soon as I heard '밑바닥에서' and his 'Epik high' stuff.

    I checked about the comment stuff for you and this is what people keep saying to do:
    Switch Back to the Old Interface,
    then click Settings,
    Comments and turn it off from there.


    Hope that works, keke.
