On Saturday we had the first snow of the year in Tokyo. Surprisingly, it snowed a lot as well so some friends and I were able to make snowmen!

Taiwan Engrish

Here are some interesting things I found in Taiwan:

While walking around a small neighborhood I came across this wall…

Why Worry?
There are only two things to worry about.
Either you’re well or you are ill.
If you are well, there is nothing to worry about.
If you are ill, there are only two things to worry about.
Either you get well or you die.
If you get well, there is nothing to worry about.
If you die, there are only two things to worry about.
Either you go to heaven, or you go to hell.
If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about.
If you go to hell, you will be busy shaking hands with your frier there.
You won’t have time to worry about.

I drink C!

“Delicious breakfast make us have a good mood and health.”

Nice logo and name, I wonder what they sell there.

Disadleb English

It’s really simple…
Step 1 - Press the button.
Step 2 - Then remove your car from the track.
Step 3 - Run when you see the train approaches!

Note to self… Exercise Caution.

Drive slowly and beware of the ‘owls’.

Even museums in Taiwan are no match for Microsoft’s blue screen of death.

This year for my winter vacation I wanted to go somewhere but I didn’t really know where. Finally, 2 weeks before my vacation began, I bought a ticket to Taiwan. As Japan is having one of the coldest years in about 30 years I wanted to go someplace warm. New Zealand and Australia were too far and expensive, and I’m also not a relax-on-a-beach type person, so I settled on Taiwan. I left on the 25th, Christmas day, and came back on January 4th, the day before I started work again. That left me with a total of 8 whole fun filled days in Taiwan.
I spent the first 6 days traveling around the country in a big circle, and spent New Years Eve and the last 2 in Taipei. The things that impressed me most about Taiwan were the people, food, temples, food, nature, history, and food. I ate an amazing variety of foods and sweets, and all were very good. The people were very friendly and always talkative and helpful. The temples and history seen in them were very interesting to see as well. Taiwan’s nature and scenery is purely amazing. Taiwan has over 200 mountains that are over 3000 meters high, many of which are higher than Mt. Fuji.
I am working on the photo gallery at this moment, but until I get it finished here are some highlights…
