Taiwan: Little Nippon

{@previouspost reply: yep, I have bought a Hello Kitty frame (black)! The pancake look a like with redbean paste called: imagawayaki! The art museum was inside the Memorial Hall 'Chiang
  Kai-Shek'. I use Olympus-EPL1 camera!  }

 My experience about Taiwan so far
is that the Japanese influence is pretty big.

"Between 1895 and 1945, Taiwan used to be the first colony of Japan.
After the WWII, Taiwan was given back to China but even to this day we still
see alot of Japanese traces in Taiwan."
Okay, enough history lecturing.

In my previous post we all witnessed that
Japanese food was in overload in Taipei, today I am
going to show you typical Japanese interior.

Lets check out these new pictures!

 A quick yummy McDonald's breakfast. 

Manga and cartoon metro!

At 'Yang Ming Park' I highly recommend this place for hikers and photographers!


A Japanese summerhouse that used to belong to old president of Taiwan 'Chiang Kei-Shek.
Now a tourism attraction. 


I'm Feeling: good, school-stressed
Music: Ciara - Promise I totally love the lyrics. Might sing/dance this to my future husband :') naw.
Food: blueberry muffin
Drink: cappuccino
