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!

When I am in London, I don’t miss Taiwanese food, apart from breakfast. It’s kind of interesting. All the breakfast shops in Taiwan look exactly the same, selling exactly the same type of food, and usually, it tastes slightly different, but most of them are fantastic! There are millions of options, from sandwich, egg roll, spaghetti (Yes! Spaghetti for breakfast!), hamburgers…etc. And for each type food, you can choose from, bacon, ham, eggs, sweet corn, chicken, pork…etc. You can also mix with two, three or even more. On top of that, it takes you less £1. My favorite is egg roll with bacon and cheese, yummy!

While I am in Taipei, Taipei Fine Art Museum is one of the places that I go most frequently. Well, not only because it’s not far from where I live by scooter, but also because it’s really cheap! (The entrance fee is about 60p.) And, of course, despite the political scandal, the exhibitions are always diverse and interesting, and it has great library in the basement. On top of that, after my solo show, some of the staffs and I became friends. So, 60p for great exhibitions, free books and hanging out with friends, why not?

It might be a bit exaggerated to compare it with central park, but it is also a green space in the city centre. (Just a bit smaller.) It’s around my neighborhood, again, so I have a lot of childhood memories with it. I remember teachers from elementary school always brought us there, for field trip, which is only one block away. And I also had my graduation photos taken there. Nowadays, I go back for jogging often.

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.
