HELLO. HI. I’M BACK FROM TAIWAN!!! =D
Who: Myself, 25 classmates, 2 teachers, and a lovable tour guide
What: Taiwan Creative Writing Immersion Programme
When: November 9-22
Where: TAIWAN!!! Taipei mostly.
Why: Umm, have fun, mingle in a new city, observe a different way of life!
SO MANY THINGS happened in the past 2 weeks. I went into this trip thinking it was something for shopaholics *ahem*, and only to come out of it realizing how much I cherish my culture, my language, my family, my friends, everything that makes who I am. I want to share them with you guys, and in a way, remind myself forever of this journey. ♥ Truckload of photos to come.
Our tour guide 张爸爸 =)
An enthusiastic welcome from Fudan High School, and our first Taiwanese bubble tea (bucket list!)
Egg tart in an egg =P
Self-discovery Day — getting our metro tickets!
Giant ice-creams… WE REGRET NOTHING =D
On the Lovers’ Bridge with friends who mean more to me than lovers <3
Taiwan’s famous night markets.
Toilet-themed restaurant, the cutest thing ever!
And of course, TAIPEI 101.We got as far up as 91 floors, the wind was just CRA-ZY.

Whatever I expected, it wasn’t this! Shelves and shelves of YA books, of different editions, different covers, and even the chinese translations.
I ended up only getting ONE BOOK– Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami, author of IQ84. A few days before Halloween, I went for the NaNoWriMo kick-off party here in Singapore with my best friends. First observation: 3 people in the room brought IQ84 with them. UMM is it some kind of highly intellectual books for smart people? =P
I decided to get Norwegian Wood instead since it’s more travel friendly. If any of you have read it… Tell me what you think!
So that’s it for now! How has your month been?
