Updates from Taipei... (7) : pictorials

This trip to Taipei has done me quite a bit of good. I'm definitely rested and I had time to recomposed myself for the rest of the year ahead. I've learnt to appreciate abstracts and blurred pictures shot thru my PnS and I love the results!

The weather there is a definite welcome as opposed to the usual humid weather in Singaland. Food's cheap and good.

Anyway, more pics to share:

The story goes like this: we went over to SiLing (士林夜市)Night market and decided to have ourselves a bowl of liang mien. 3 types of hotness to choose from so Ead and I went for the xiao la (小辣)while WS went for the zhong la (中辣). A good thing coz it's enough to kill our tastebuds. Ohh, the ultimate? kwang la (狂辣)... I dread to think how we even can stomach it....

great, now i wanna eat la mian..

hey man.. nice one on the scooters and the predestrain crossing! reminded me of the Bee Gees cover..

eee...the buiding looks like being taken during earthquake lay..:P

I shall just put one word each for " act cute" and "liang mian"..."chio lah" and...."slurps"

狂辣 mian sounds scary... did you guys have blistering red lips after the noodles?

snooze: hehehe... nothing beats the authentic la mian :)

silver_crv: 1 sec exposure handheld but I like the effect. hahaha... I love that shot of the scooters too... something funny about the whole pic.

dR: yupz, it is scary. The lady of the store kept telling us to try the xiao la 1st. The person ordering the kuang la has to be given a taste test (store policy in writing somemore) 1st before it's being served up. I guess they dun want anyone to risk dying of eating chilli. Hehee... no blistering lips but the tongue and lips kinda lost their feeling for a while... :p Cool thing... the mian is cool but we can eat until we perspire (literally driplets of sweat) on a 14 degrees night.

u gotta gimme more credit than tht. i took the 2nd hottest, 超辣:P

but then, if i were to choose again, i'll pick the mildest one. at least i will have a better night's sleep:) no wonder the owner asked if we're singaporeans. i think all singaporeans very "铁牙" one:P
