Another Year Wiser

About 2 weeks ago, I was reminded by the fact that time waits for no one, and without realizing, I was another year older wiser. I really do believe that time seems to fly much faster when you have a baby! Every day is just a mad rush in the morning and right after work….

Crystal Jade Chalet

Our one night at Sun Moon Lake was spent at Crystal Jade Chalet, a random hotel we found from the internet. There were plenty of chalets and hotels around the Sun Moon Lake city centre where the pier was, but we thought that to be too noisy and commercialized. After much scouting, we called up…

Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall

One of the famous landmarks and postcard pictures of Taipei is the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, I noticed. We didn’t originally plan to visit this place at first, judging from our tight schedule, but it so happened that the bus we’re on one day stopped at Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall and we decided there and…
