Hsiao-Ron Cheng is a Taiwanese illustrator living in Taipei, Taiwan. She attended Taiwan University of Art from 2007-2010, receiving her BFA in Fine Art. Her work alludes to the deformation that physically separates human from plants. The environments and situations that she paints are often of surrealist nature, reminiscent of school, and partly based on phantasy.
Astar is a new café just opened around my neighborhood, and I am glad it opened! The decoration is cute, with lots of old furniture, including tables and chairs from elementary schools. The owner is only 29 years old, who had a dream of having a shop selling everything, so he started saving money since 15. It certainly brought a new atmosphere to the area, where is known for financial centre. Since the owner was a bartender at a famous bar in Taipei, don’t forget to order a customized cocktail not on the menu!
A nice community located in Songshan Dist with a lot of great cafes/restaurants. This place always surprise me when finding a good food or lovely shops. I visit here often cause my boyfriend lives here.
Cashbox is a chained karaoke business. Unlike the karaoke in Europe, usually located in pubs, for people who are brave enough to sing in front of other strangers. In Cashbox, we show up as a group of friends, we have our own room with screen, computer, and microphones. We order whatever songs we like from the computer, then the music videos show up on the screen and we sing along! It’s a great place for relieving pressure.
A lovely cafe that you can see a little garden at the door, and inside there are some chairs flying in the air. You can have a nice drink accompany with their selected books and magazines. I like the atmosphere in Merci Cafe.
