How To...

In Taiwan, there are often notices posted up in bathrooms asking for guests not to flush their toilet paper down the toilet for fear of clogging it. However, this public restroom, at 旗津區 (Qijin Island) in Kaohsiung instructs one on how to use the toilet instead.

Guard Dogs

Guarding Buddha's Head fruit at a stand en route to Taidong

They know to sit in a spot where they can get a full view of their surroundings. The first dog seems more like a 老闆娘 (store owner's wife), who seemingly has more reign than the 老闆 (boss). The second directly gives caution with it's old man glare and threat to bite.

It wears a sign that says "我會咬人!" (I will bite people!)

Standing in the Middle of the Street

From PEGA to Zongyi Station, the clouds obstruct my view of the mountains behind

Coming out of Yuanshan Station

Almost there
Some common sights on my way home from work. While standing in the middle of the street.

My grandmother is a short woman. I love to watch how her feet barely reach the ground to tap to the beat, while she sings every other word of the song.

Happy Friday!

On my way back home last night, about 75% of the people on the subway car were using an electronic device. And I realized sometimes we go whole days staring at screens... 

... I'm going to go read a book.
