tadaa!!! i finally found time to blog this this. had been in the draft for 3 days.

eh, hold on. i just remember i need to make a call to a very important client.

ok. done.

so we actually didnt do anything much in Taichung cos we didnt have that much time. so we only went to the nearby places where one of it was a park!! @.@ a very normal looking park suggested by the receptionist! T__T

so we started our day with our breakfast which was pre-ordered upon our arrival the night before.

#1

our breakfast were sent to our room.

#2

#3

starting our sightseeing activity around Taichung.

#4 Saw this uncle in the middle of the road. haha!! he definitely could blend well with the mannequins at the back!

#5 an old coffee shop.

#6 our lunch.

then we went to a park. a boring little park suggested by the receptionist. sigh~~ we totally didnt go for the ones we had in the itinerary.

#8

we saw the above giant goats in the middle of the field. apparently this was the main lantern of the 2003 Taichung Lantern Festival where it was also a goat year in chinese calendar. the city government of Taichung decided to keep this lantern as a monument.

an old tree

#10

weird looking tree

#11

chasing the pigeons like as if in Paris. hehehe!!

#12

ahhh!! i like this tree.

then we got bored and stopped a taxi to go to the museum of natural science to be all cultured. when we got into the taxi he too suggested us to go to that museum. i think it’s a popular one in Taichung. but on our way, he alerted us to take note for something by the road side on the right-hand side. he said we’ll see something interesting…. when it’s near he yelled ‘there it is!! get your camera ready!’ @.@ and this is what we saw….
