    The Photo Shop is Open!

    We're not talking about the most loved/hated photo editing software; we're talking about an actual photo shop! While looking for antique cameras on eBay, we found a vintage photograph depicting a pharmacy-slash-camera shop from way back in 1910! How does it compare to today's photo stores?

    Feng Chia Night Market during Daytime

    Cherry Blossoms in Taichung

    My only expedition to see the cherry blossoms this year took me to Dakeng, Taichung in Taiwan. We visited Taichung over the long weekend back in February and my friends decided to make the trip to a private plot of cherry trees that was kindly made public by the owner for the first time this year. There are other famous cherry blossoms viewing spots in Taiwan, for example: Yangminshan National Park, Wuling Farm and Alishan Forest but they are usually way too crowded during the peak of blooming.

    There are not many places left where one can eat chestnuts that are stir fried manually. If you like to eat stir fried chestnuts, you must check out this stall managed by an old couple. Other delicacies they sell include roasted sweet potatoes, and vegetarian smelly tofu. I will try those on my next visit.
