台湾后话 (上)

转眼间,发现自己的中文文笔似乎变得很差了。都快变成词不达意了。 所以不管了,这个后记一定要用中文来完成。

还记得刚抵达的第一晚,细雨下,我呆立着,有点彷徨地站在交通灯前,目送着一辆辆的汽车呼肃地行驶,突然,心里涌出一股兴奋。

“我终于踏在这个坐落在- 北纬25.05 东经121.5, 的城市中心了!”

一阵喘气,兴奋后。。才想起,诶!今晚我还没有睡的地方!

(当时:晚上10点45分,万家灯火)


就这样,我正式开始了17天的台湾游荡 (左摇摇~右摆摆~)。 为什么是游荡而不是旅行呢?因为,我没有准备行程表。17天,喜欢到哪里就到哪里吧~ 岂不痛快!



在馆前路,新光三越转角后,我就听到一群小孩吵闹的声音,穿插在车水马龙(是的,车辆都在我身后。)与建筑物激荡的阵阵回音中,竟然毫不逊色!

走近观察下,哦原来是一群幼稚园的学生,要排队进入台北故事馆 (注意看那个水果门)

隐隐觉得有些东西不对?是的,就是少了幼稚园学生制服!

(唉,怎么以前我在幼稚园时,除了早操,用手指刷牙,读abc就什么都没了?参观厕所算吗?也不过是教我不要乱小便罢了!)

很熟悉?感觉像大马food court的情形?呵呵,这个是坐落在台北车站1 楼,花资几千万台元改造的“微风广场”

我没有在这里吃,只是游荡游荡而已。
我在7-11 便利店打包。 很穷的!

人饿肚子,抢着要吃东西时,任何肤色,语言,老少,表现出来的行态举动,其实都几乎一样。

饿了,就想快点吃。不是吗?




由于心灵上的放松,我在这个国土仔细地看到了很多以往不会去留意的事。

不妨先看看以下这张照片:

不就是一行人,站着等待中吗?没错,请再看看每个人的表情~ 就是等待中的表情咯!对,从他们的表情中,他们在想些什么呢?请仔细地看。嗯。。。。

不简单了?对不对?人总习惯性地,用自己的认知去衡量别人,主观性的批判别人的动作,言语,表情。口口声声说自己很客观,没有偏见的,通常就是一种掩饰。

毕竟,真正客观,不驾驭别人的智者,是不用说出来的。

不骗你,这个体会,让我更加学会如何察言观色,坐言起行。

再看着一张:

老人的辛酸
每天一清早,老伯就带着木棍,皮球,一拐拐地走上高雄旧英国领事馆门前空地。等到第一批旅客到来,就开始卖力地重复多年如一的小杂技,望的就是多凑几分钱,拿回家帮助患有糖尿病,需要金钱洗肾的老伴。台风来时,游客止步,也就是陈伯心酸的日子。 

看了,眼泪都注满眼眶了,是不是? 

如果我告诉你,老人故事其实可以是这样的呢?:
老伯,大家都称他为陈伯。

当地人,都知道陈伯是高雄旧英国领事馆的红艺人。

陈伯每次休息喝茶后,起身开始转动他的皮球时,身边的孩童,旅客都会涌前围观。看着陈伯微笑中开始专注地表演着一个个的变化,大家都笑开脸了。

表演完后,有人想打赏给陈伯,不料陈伯回绝说:“啊,不必不必,你们爱看,常来就好!”

原来,陈伯喜爱这处面海的空地,喜爱别人欣赏他的杂技。经济?家里早有儿子媳妇孙儿,无忧无虑,想要的是目光,让杂技不老。

亲眼看到的一定是可以相信的,是事实?现在你看到了?哪一个才是事实?

再一次印证,你怎么想,老伯就如你想的。好坏,一念之差。切忌鲁莽判断事情,勉之。

(那么老伯到底是A还是B呢?当然,我所感觉到的老伯,是后面开心的那一段陈述~^_^ )

--未完,喜欢的,留个回复,写下你的想法,常点来!哈!

红豆

昨日是十月九日。前些天是六日。

无论是十月六日或九日,都曾对我意义非凡,以及难忘。(虽然我经常搞乱那个是哪个)

这个六日,我打了通电话,获得了很厉害的运气!就在第二天就被聘请了~

然后,九日正式上班!(现在努力干活着。。)

我不是那么迷信的人,可是冥冥中这两个日子的确有它磁场的魔力。

今夜,我格外想念你们。红豆 这首歌,剖析了我的思绪。

若有一天你们也看到了这篇短序,我也想你好好地听一听~

希望你们过得快乐,顺心,如意,幸福:





還沒好好的感受 雪花綻放的氣候
我們一起顫抖 會更明白 甚麼是溫柔
還沒跟你牽著手 走過荒蕪的沙丘
可能從此以後 學會珍惜 天長和地久

有時候 有時候 我會相信一切有盡頭
相聚離開 都有時候 沒有甚麼會永垂不朽
可是我 有時候 寧願選擇留戀不放手
等到風景都看透 也許你會陪我 看細水長流

還沒為你把紅豆 熬成纏綿的傷口
然後一起分享 會更明白 相思的哀愁
還沒好好的感受 醒著親吻的溫柔
可能在我左右 你才追求....孤獨的自由

有時候 有時候 我會相信一切有盡頭
相聚離開 都有時候 沒有甚麼會永垂不朽
可是我 有時候 寧願選擇留戀不放手
等到風景都看透 也許你會陪我 看細水長流

Livin'in Taiwan - Day 13

Today is another rainy morning... the weather has started to change recently..

After the quick-breakfast in the hotel, we walked to LONG SHAN Temple for a "sembayang", hoping the weather will be fine today so we can go to the next destination.




This is indeed an ancient temple of Taipei...(about 200 years?) Many religious functions held here. What i found interesting here, is i get to buy many charms for friends and family.


After the visit at the temple, we moved on to take a 40min transit to MAo Kong to ride gondola. (the whole street is awakening where peoples are walking in fast pace to work)





Mao Kong Gondola and its station.
A bit disappointing, there is nothing much to explore here. This is a place where people tanam tea....... and we were being conned by a not-so-tasty restaurant for an expensive lunch.. haih~

A flower taken up there...





next we decided to shop at Taipei most-concerntrated spot.

This shopping areas gave me a very positive feelings.
The rains has actually stopped. and it is safe to walk around within the shopping complexes. (without cars, or other vehicles.)






Some other views of this shopping area.

Not to forget, this place has 3 -4 Clubs and other pubs... At night, it is a hot spot to see happening guys and girls. ( I've seen two lamborgini around this place at the same night too~)

Suddenly, i thought i saw Choo Bey Ni ....:P (of course it is not her! hahaha!) But i quickly snapped her to record this down.. KAKA! (p.s Bey Ni is my uni friend)





Familiar of this place? yes it is Xi Men Ding again...... xi men ding is really a place that you shouldn't miss out because...day and night, it is crowded!










See? I had a hair-cut in Xi Men ding. The saloon is called 乱剪.

Sigining off~

Livin'in Taiwan - Day 12

Today first thought of going to ride Gondola in MAO Kong... but it is stupid that we didn't carefully awared that Gondola will not be in service on every Mon.




At the end, we decided to visit "Zheung Ghai Sek Memorial"

This is the National Theather of Taiwan. Very different compared to the one we have in Malaysia. (by design-wise~ haha!)

Ohya..the weather is not well. It rained. So it has a different looks than those you can search via Google ya.




Outside view / Inside view~ of the Memorial
The area is big that you probably need to spend 2 - 3minutes walking fast under the rain to enter.. Ha!



Don't believe? see it and measure it yourself ya~ ;)



Some of the closer shot of the memorials exhibited statues and pictures.


Looks like real? and his car is bullet-proof!


After a quick glance at the memorials, we proceed to Yang Ming Shan again. Aimed to visit other places that I have missed on my last trip.

This is the Stations called BEI TOU. I were thinking to snap it for quite a long time...finally i get the chance ha! nice?



Not kidding but it is actually raining in Yang Ming Shan too! (perhaps the whole taipei)

we decided to take a good time (lunch) in here. So we visited this corner, western restaurant for a try.

The black shirt guy is the cook + owner of this restaurant ya!
You can see the yellow Rain-coats are belongs to ours. haha!




Not joking but i do think it can compete with 5-star hotel's quality! (we bet he is "graduated" from Europe!)



Don't believe? haha... it really taste very very good! you must try it if you are coming here too!





It was hard to catch a bus at the rainy day. we took some times to reach this place.

It is some kind of farm that produce fresh veges.














Due to the rain, the temperature dropped drastically. And it gave us fresh airs and nice scenery too!

A little bit of windy had added more Cooling ambiences here!









After a while we came down and visited this primary school. I personally recalled the time when i first went out from home to participate in a BrassBand camping in cameron high school.
The feelings were exactly felt the same. :)

Aha....after the sunset, we decided to visit SHI LIN night market... Many people had said shi lin is not the finest night market in Taiwan... it were because it became famous by tourism definition.
In fact, i find it true....compare to many other places. shi lin is not bad...but it wasn't that good too!








To some extents, i rather likes Malaysia's Night Market!





Not being surprised, you will be seeing a lot of people promoting their shops / products by yelling, holding board, all sorts of ways to gain your attention! In this way i think it can be somehow effective by simply acting out to catch your eyes ball~













This is how a normal stores that sells many things... perhaps it can triggers girls to go inside to slowly check out what do they sell by being messy... haha!

Not bad huh? hehe!



Tml...will be shopping day...
Sigining off~

Livin'in Taiwan - Day 11

Today was a great day. I'd visited quite a lot of interesting places around Taipei.

First in the morning, we (together with my friends) walked from the hotel to XI MEN DING!


So, what is Xi Men Ding? it is a street that is famous of youngsters hanging out around; where you can find many restaurants, shops, cineplex, etc...


It is famous that people are very stylish here. #_^

scroll down to see---->






How do you think? haha~

(actually there are more, but i am saving it for later post :P)





A group of street dancers that are in competition. (while back there, it is a Sony Street Campaign to promote newly launched walkman mp4)

EiEi!!!! Who is this? WAhahaha... yeah you are right she is Krystal!

(not superstar ya..she is my ex-colleague in astro :P)



Guess What? I actually went to visit the place where this Jay Chou Movie - Secret are shot!


It was Sunday and the school is prohibited for public entry.

However, we managed to pretend numb and gang gang enter to take some shots :P







This is where I heard the famous "door bell" alarm that notify students of changing period. What a back-to-school experience! (we went to Dan Shui!)



How How? Does the pictures recall any memories to those who watched it numerous time?

For person like Rames and Jason, probably you will like this town too~ :P

walking down from this staircase, we headed to the port to watch sunset in Dan Shui.





WOW...many peoples are actually sitting down the fence, many of them holding canggih camera and shooting!

haha, i also shot a few ...and it is my first time taking sunset picture here... please don't scold if it looks ugly ^_^.




Sunset with an plane... I was wondering what kind of view that the passenger can see? by having that close to the Sun? (amazed...)


After the sunset, we took a boat and headed to the famous DAN SHUI MA TOU (Dan Shui Harbour) for Dinner and a walk.. :D


See, this is their so-called QING REN QIAO (Couple's Bridge). Does it looked like Putrajaya bridge? haha~







Okay...this is the place where we had our dinner. It is called "HAVANA" ...
Having a wonderful name and restaurant's interior.. the service quality is barely satisfying. What a pity..

Food? Ma Ma Dei *(means okay okay only~)



A shot from the Harbour to oppposite Land. A night Scenery that i tried to take. It was a peaceful, windy night over there.




Many couples are really happily spending their time here. In fact i think it really has that love atmosphere spreading around the place.



And Me? This is me~
Day 11 ended with good emotions with a small taste of Heineken.. ;)

I hope you like day 11 too~ :)
