Apart shopping in fashion boutiques and loving clothes, I love to shop or just stroll around in a bookstore and go flip books. Maybe I love this even more. After leaving the manga exhibition ANI-COM & Games (post: here) me and my lil’ niece went to this Taiwanese Eslite Bookstore at
It has 3 floors with: books (obvious), art, mini gallery, stationery, café/tearoom and a lecture room. I had to pinch myself for a bit because I thought I landed on heaven. Almost. So, smartphone off and start reading or just flipping through books rather buying it (guilty..), ha. Definitely going back for sure to this place next time in
Volgens mij beschikken de meeste meiden wel van ‘shop-genen’ en voldoening voor winkelen, ik in ieder geval wel. Naast de mode boetiekjes ben ik dol DOL op boekenwinkels. Zo was ik in Hong Kong op hol geslagen toen ik ‘Eslite Bookstore’ binnenliep samen met m’n nichtje.
Why? Nou, omdat deze 3 vloeren boekenwinkel uiteenlopende categorieën van boeken heeft, zowel in Engels als Chinees. Dus, smartphone uit en ga lekker snuffelen en lezen. Niet te vergeten: kunst, schrijfwaren, galerijtje, café/theehuis en een lezing zitten ook in deze winkelpand. Hoe vet is dat! Mij zie je sowieso weer terug in deze winkel c:
My partner (and camera-woman) in crime: my niece!
Before, we had lunch at some foodcourt with variety choices of cuisine. We picked Hokkaido Dairy Farm because me and my niece love silky smooth eggs that's prepared with hokkaido milk.: ♥♥♥♥ 4/5
Inside the Eslite Bookstore, we discovered this small white gallery room with nothing but some wallpaints and a tv with a portfolio work of this artist. Kind of interesting.
Spending some time with books. I've bought some cookbooks.
Why are these Asian magazine so thick? Not the magazine itself but because of the freebies (could be a tote bag, makeup, stationery, slippers) inside! I've bought 2. Because I'm a sucker for freebies in magazines c:
I did not forget papa and purchased some of his beloved Chinese herbal tea.
According to my niece, they serve the best bubble tea in HK. Hence the huge queue we had at that time, and we were super bumped out when we saw the tapioca pearls were temporary out of stock! Grr.
Me and my niece were determined to have bubble tea no matter what, and waited until the tapioca pearls came back in stock. So that being said and did and got rewarded.
By the way: Happy Halloween!
spending mine with Supernatural episodes *cough*
