What is life?

So many struggles and contradictions.
So deeply depressing yet interesting.
So controversial but simple.

Why is happiness so simple yet so difficult to achieve, maintain and keep?

Why is depression seeping from everyone's skin, lurking in every corner, snapping at our heels?

Life is full of surprises til it no longer surprises me.

Life is such.

Why can't I seem to accept it?

Food Glorious Food


Huge giant statue in Kaohsiung.... spotted more such gargantuan monuments of fervent religious devotion. Got Ji Gong, Buddha, Goddess of Mercy etc. In Taiwan, all temples are HUGE. *faint*

This is the city of lights in Kaohsiung. Basically it's just a park in the middle of the city fitted with lights. Quite a cool place to hang out but not in the summer heat. *sweat*

Hi! My name is Han Xiao Xiao. I may look evil but I'm not. I purr and coo and whisk my tail against those I like. Don't worry I don't bite. Might scratch though.

Silly farmer's hat in Meinong village, a traditional Hakka village in Kaohsiung.

High class drain fish..koi

Aptly named Hell's Valley. It's a geothermal hot sprig with temperatures reaching almost 100 degrees. Damn hot. We scooted off after 10 minutes there. Crazy to linger there in the summer heat.

In Ping Tung market. Freshness abound.

Taiwan High Speed Rail. 90 min from Kaohsiung to Taipei

Kaohsiung..some lake lah



Kenting Street - happening street in Kenting like a Ye shi with bars, pubs, surf shops and cafes.

At Mao Bi Tou...some cliff looking over the Basque Straits.

From way up there we ventured down to the shore.....

Hee my fav!

Long Pan Park...

Keep on digging keep on digging

Snoopy and me and sunblock

Our very cool min-shu in Kenting with cool laid back bosses.

E Luan Bi Lighthouse


Ping Xi

There I was at Pingxi, 40 mins away from Taipei City. It's this sleepy, quaint scenic old town that used to thrive on coal mining.

I had to take a picture with the train conductor. Check out the resemblence with the statue below! He's such a typical Taiwanese train conductor!

Ping Xi has a few waterfall. This one is called Eye Waterfall I think.

This is the Shifen waterfall. Quite massive when you get near to it, with all the water spraying in the wind.

Pingxi is the Tian Deng homeland where you scribble your wishes on the paper sky lantern, lit a fire and release it into the sky, hoping the gods above will grant your wishes. On hindsight, I realised why Singapore will never have this tradition. Littering fines.

So cute hor!

Damn cute hor?

Aiyo..what a cheena pok pose. Hee


Yes yes yes. I hear it all now... why Taiwan again...long story actually. Had fun though and good to meet my crazy Taiwanese family friends who are on the constant prowl to find food to gorge us with and entertain us with their bizzare banter. Good food, good fun, nice sights, great shopping. What more can I say? Thoroughly enjoyable despite the crazy weather.

Magic? Pure enjoyment. Great fun. Good music. The surprise of meeting Sharolyn Tay.
Moving of lightsticks. Stamping of feet. Jumping bodies. Screaming cries.
I can hear, scream, see, jump and breathe.

rainy days and mondays

I loved this song when I was hooked to the Carpenters when I was young.... didn't know it applies to how I feel right now.....

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

What I've got they used to call the blues
Nothin' is really wrong
Feelin' like I don't belong
Walkin' around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it's the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me.

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it's all about
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

把握年輕 好好發揮表現

I can only escape into my realm of music... ... Sing sing sing


在上面擺盪草原上 搖曳著的花啊
陽光蒸發了 無人的喧嘩

一路上追逐白色飛馬 來到了陌生的霓虹生涯
如果說不回頭 不必害怕 我的幸福總有解答
為何我還追逐著 追逐那夢中
大聲的喊出 這才是人生啊

在日出的疲勞中 無力掙扎
那以為可以的永遠啊 為什麼短暫的 令人驚訝

那男孩背影后的瀟灑 帶走了永遠神秘的解答
如果說不回頭 不必害怕 人生理想總會到達
為何我還追憶著 追憶那似水年華 追憶似水年華

我 爛命一條 走在路上 影子在地上
像 我的慌張 黏在腳下 抓著我不放
我不懂 我不是這樣 我不該這樣
額頭流下的汗 又流進眼眶

為什麼 要給我 一顆跳動的心臟
卻忘了 給我飛翔的翅膀
多麼 想要 流浪

為什麼要給我 一顆跳動的心臟
又把我 丟在這寂寞戰場
有沒有一點希望 讓我去闖 天涯海角 讓我去闖

把 我的靈魂 裝進紙箱 寄送到天堂
那 雲端的光 會不會是 希望的形狀
每一天 來了又走了匆忙的太陽
感覺自己蒸發 慢慢從這個 世界上


有場戰爭就在眼前 鬥志鬥不過溫柔棉被
水龍頭裡流出眼淚 又是殘酷的美好一天
眼前有一千件事 正等著解決
Everybody 想要改變 Everything won't be OK
七點的一杯咖啡 八的紅綠燈 斑馬線 A busy game

Everyday 活在瘋狂世界 活在美好的明天
重重考驗來到今天 不知不覺改變遠離每個昨天
Hey那些笑和眼淚 沒有時間說再見
喜怒哀樂苦辣酸甜 (夢的邊緣我在徘徊) 終於了解這就是生活的滋味

生活太近夢想太遠 午餐是吃飯還是吃麵
喜歡忙碌搞得很累 電話吵醒的星期天
珍惜的浪費時間 換來了生命的缺 理想劃過天邊 愛情呀與我擦肩
分不清東西南北 分不清我的地我的天 A busy game
是不是會有答案 在終點後面
當初的我的信念 現在的我又是誰
在狂奔的每個白天 寂寞的每個夜慢慢發現 I'm superman

-Ah Shin-
