Photo: Dome Of Light @ Formosa Boulevard Station, Kaoshiung

Read about artwork and decided to come by to snap some photos while doing game missions. As you can see, it’s an interesting piece and designed by Italian artist – Narcissus Quagliata. No lack in photographers and/or tourists or locals, stopping at its centre, for a shot. And if you are lucky, maybe a few kids practising a dance or two and doing their own dance video 🙂

Photo: Wedding Photo – Sneak Peek

Thanks to the 3-man team (photographer, light assistant and stylist) from 貝思特婚纱 / Best Wedding Taichung, the full day wedding shoot for ytd went very well. Even the weather was oddly cooperative, after the sudden morning rain, near perfect weather causing slight sunburnt. But better sunburnt than soaked by rain, right? 🙂 And, here’s the sneak peek from the shoot from my iPhone 6 / Instagram: It was fun, though i think I’ll share more on the experience later once the selection process is done.  And it feels good to receive congratulations and sweet comments from passerbys, even took a photo with a sweet little girl. Can’t wait to see the rest of the photos later 🙂 One thing for…

Travel: Houtong / Cat Village (猫村)

Once you get there, you’d be welcomed by various handiwork around the station… And of course, the station assistant and ‘welcoming community’ aka cats 🙂 And here are some photos of the lovely place: There are more but i will need some time to sort through and post 🙂 Oh, do remember… There’s a pressed penny machine for the pressed penny lovers,…

Travel: On board the HSR

Experienced the early morning squeeze of Taipei’s working crowd and now on the HSR, to other towns. I stand by my previous comments on their MRT service, it’s the same for their HSR. Efficient, organized, hardly late, clean and fast 🙂 Watched the staff cleaned up after the last group got off, before letting us on board (and I self snapshot :p). Really different from the KTM and China bullet train experience. I guess different style works for different groups. For me, I like the organized, efficient and clean more. Can’t wait for Nov/Dec, to try the Japan bullet trains. Should be an equally interesting experience 😀 Well that’s all for now, just got outta the tunnel. Time to take…
