This is from Asia One, the rental place. There’s a promotion now, if you buy 3 Blue-Ray movies, you get a Playstation 3 Blue-Ray Remote for free. The remote itself costs a bit over a 1000 NT, so I think it’s a pretty good deal… The only downside is that you can only choose movies from SONY…. I picked these three is because they are action movies… So they should have good sound effects…

These I got from the umm… Shi-Lin Night Market. Got lucky that night, didn’t take too many tries to grab these things~

This is the free glass from McDee’s, with their Big Big Mac Meal~ There are five different ones…

This was from… Umm… Eslite. It’s called "Money Tree". As you put in more coins, the tree grows taller~  Also comes in White.

This I got from Ariel, Ryan’s fiancee.  Once you wear it, any bug that flies near you, falls out of the sky and dies… hahahahaha~

This was from My dad’s friend’s friend. It’s Stitch~ Such a funny character. I’m sure everyone knows how it works, you take turn to press down a tooth, and see who gets their finger bitten off! hehehe

This is another piggy bank that I have. This was from Japan, thanks to JJ.  It’s a little bomb, and it has different settings. Basically, if you don’t put money in everyday, or 3 days, or a week, depends on the setting, it’ll shake with music every once in a while, and if you ignores it, it’ll…. EXPLODE! and whatever you have in it will all fall out~~ But of course, you can turn it off… So you don’t come home with a floor filled with money after a long haul flight~

The Japanese… have all these special Zippo lighters with Anime characters… And… this is the only one I have… I think my body was taken over by a spirit when I bought it… (鬼上身)…

This is Munny~ Got it at Urban Outfitters I think… It comes in all white like the box, then, you color it in yourself… I am still searching for an eraser to erase what I did and start over…

So, July ended… This entry is all about food…

This is Victor’s son, he looks just like 花田一路!!! If you don’t know who that is… Please Google it yourself. Thank you!

鮮芋仙 is not the best I’ve had, but… it’s the closest thing around my house that serves icy cold dessert…

So I was in TCH again, and this time I got to try this Chinese hotdog… Because it seems like it’s one of the most famous things at the night market, and there were lines~~~~ So I had to try it… and… and… it’s just ok… not exactly a must hav/eat when you are in TCH 逢甲 night market… it comes in 5 different flavors, original, garlic, spicy, black pepper, and wasabi.  Actually, you can make your own if you wish. And instead of stuffing it with just a sausage, they also put in, onions, cucumber, onions, dried radish, pickled veggies and crushed peanuts. Not a must hav, if there’s a line… if there’s no line… maybe…

This is at 韓記. It’s on the southwest corner (sort of) of 忠孝 and 金山南路. Saw a rerun of a food show on TV the night before, so took mom and Angela over the next day.  Their signature dish is the 麻辣燙. Basically it’s like the spicy hot pot, without the pot.  It’s a bowl of spicy soup base with duck blood, tofu skin, soybean sprouts, lots of green scallions, and your choice of Beef, Pork, or Lamb slices. Also, you can hav it with noodles, or cellophane noodles. Mom ordered one without noodles, and I had it with noodles, Angela had the dumplings, and, it’s REALLY good!!!
Then, the little side dishes, it’s not bad, but the one thing that surprised us was the Water Chestnut.  It’s been deep fried then tossed with sauce, so it’s kinda crispy on the outside, but soft on the inside. At first, I thought it was just ok, but as you chew it, I begin to like it… A Lot!! So yummy!!!  Then there’s the chili paste, it has dried radish in it, very good too, after lunch, I even bought a jar to go~
The dog, it’s owner’s dog, very big, and very cute, and if you pet her once, you’ll have to pet her again, and again, and again.. cuz she’ll keep on nudging you and lick you to make you pet her again….
Anyway, this is a must try place if you like spicy stuff, and even if you don’t, you can go try their dumplings!

This was at a bday party, the cake… is just too funny~~~~~

This is a revisit to 三味食堂. I was there at 530 pm, and the place is packed with people inside, and a lot of people waiting outside!!!  They are famous for their giant nigiri and cheap price~ And this time I bought take out, so my parents can hav a taste. As you can see the nigiri is as big as the plastic spoon, and the sashimi, is over 1CM thick, I’d call it fish chunks…

This is at 盧記… it’s… well… I still prefer 太和殿, 橋頭, or for all you can eat, 滿堂紅. BUT! one big plus is that you can smoke there… hehehe
