A little lofty

It just so happens that my little loft isn't so lofty. The first time I walked in--I acctually hyperventilated at the thought of living in a space this small for any length of time longer than 30 minutes. However, thankfully the shock has worn off and now I'm quite comfortable in my 10 ping apartment. Pings is the Japanese measurement they use for houses here in Taiwan and it roughly converts to 10x23 sqf. I made a video of our place, but I couldn't get it to download, so I guess these terrible pictures will have to do in the mean time. They really don't do the house justice like the video does, but here they are nonetheless.

Oh My Mummy!

This Saturday was my turn to do the activity and so I decided to put on a good ol' American Halloween party. It was a pretty entertaining morning but the funniest thing by far, was the mummy making game! When they were done getting wrapped up--they all burst from their rags simultaneously and starting tossing the paper in the air whilst giggling not stop--it was a riot! I have also added a few pictures of Little Dalton, where I work. I am on the fourth floor and I have no windows :(. I never know when it gets dark......

Home Sweet Home

Here is the view from my house, I love it dearly. Not many places in Taipei have a view of green and a cute little house.

Hanazakarino Kimitachihe

This my roommate's and my latest obsession, "Hanazakarino Kimitachihe". Its the best ever romantic/comedy EVER EVER. First, this show was a manga and then the Taiwanese created a show off it--it was such a hit, the Japanese followed with remake and then we ended up making our own remake too, you might know it as, "She's the Man". However, I must say that this show far exceeds "shes all that" and deserves your undivided attention. Also note, the ever-so-lovable main characters are Taiwan pop stars, haha. Download it, Watch it and Love it!
Oh, and here is the Link to help you find it (it has Englsih subtitles):

Wong Lee Hom

This is Mr. Wang Lee Hom!!! He is a pop star extraordinaire! Not only can he sing and dance, but he can play the piano, the guitar, the violin and also do MAGIC!!! My roommate got free tickets and they were great seats! Apparently, this Mr. Wang is a pretty big deal, not only were the pyrotechnics amazing but in the opening act, he was an illustrated anime man who saved the world with his music! How rad can you get!! Oh, and he had so much glitter in his hair!! You will not only find this dashing young man on stage, but on posters selling anything you can imagine, tea, glasses, phones, anything!! They really make their pop stars work here--oh, and he's from New York! HA! Here are some of the pictures I snuck..........


OK! So as many of you know, I am now in Taiwan and loving it! I am soaking up the Taiwanese curlture and I need, no--MUST share my new knowledge with you all. A lot has happened over the past few weeks and here are just a couple of things I need to share with you.
