Jane The Capricorn (Very True leh ... haha...)

A cool and quiet woman. Once she is mad she can be very fierce.

In her opinion, woman is not just a flower or decoration at home or at an office.

She likes to control and hide her weak emotions. She will never try to change anyone, but she will learn to accept them as they are. If she does not like someone, she will not comments or criticize but she will completely ignore that person.

She hate plastic and an artificial flower because it make her feel that you are not being sincere. She loves real flower and it's scent. She loves a guy who wear after shave cologne. If you are a type of a guy who wear your Jean one month before washing, or wear an old sneaker, then you can forget about her.

She loves music and nature even there is a rare case otherwise. She loves to go picnic in nature, so if you don't have so much time for her, you can take her fishing too.

She is not as jealous as Aquarius or Leo woman, but do not cross the line O.K. Better not to see she gets mad, especially in front of public when she feels like loosing face.

She has her own goal in life and does not care if you have a doctorate degree or not, if she thinks you are not bright then she will not care about you at all. She likes smart people by character not by certificate shown.

She does not like a dreamer who talk about his dream but never put his hands in action to make it happens. Don't bother to tell her "everyone is doing it, you should do it too", or "I think you should do it, it's good for you", because she will do what she wants to do only.

She is a cool type and will not nag, so easy on your ears. She is a slow but sure type. She will always respect and honor you and will never try to make you loose your face. If she loves you, she will help you in anything you do.

She likes to help people and expect nothing in return. If she asks you for a favor and does not get one, she will feel very disappoint. She has a high hope and a high faith and beliefs in her own confident than believing in "Luck".

Taipei - Day 6 of 8 (Thur 20 Sep 2007)

A bright and scorching day at Long Shan Temple. The place is very much like Si Ma Lu in Singapore with many devotees offerings incenses, fruits and flowers.

Majestic Long Shan Temple
It has Taoist deities and Buddha statues seated at their main hall which I find it interesting b'cuz usually we don't see this kind of combination in most temples.


Spectacular Carvings
Raised my head and I m in awe...their sculpting are something to praised about too. It is so detailedly carved and the golden pieces actually adds to the majestic of the historic building.


Hua Xi Street
Near the temple is a stretch of a street named Hua Xi Street. Since we are too early, we don't get to see their stalls selling snakes tonic wine and stuffs.


Tickets to a Bird's Eye view
Next stop, we are rushing to Taipei 101! We bought the tickets to their building top for the bird's view. The fees are a bit more expensive than I had expected though. It is inevitable to experience ear blockage on our way up especially when the building have the fastest speed lifts in the world.

Taipei 101 Intro Clip
There is something in the building that still beats me. What is the wind damper for? It is placed in the middle at one of the highest floor. Maybe someone could explains about this?



Taipei 101 surging high
Finally gotta capture this significant building after our few days stay in Taipei. We'll be back in the evening for the night view shot. Haha...


Refreshing Treat
While finding our way to the National Palace Museum we stop by a dessert shop for a rest. Whew... it was a hot day but i appreciate it. (better than a raining weather) Until here, we were kind of lost and confused about which bus to take. However the stall owner is kind enough to direct us the way. But we choose to hire a cab instead which was also a wise choice as I could have a comfortable short nap along the way...



National Palace Museum
Thrust me it is super hot here! The museum is huge and spacious, it has been told that Chiang Kai Shiek had actually brought many antiques artifacts along with him from China when he came to this country. Therefore for whatever reason, it is worth taking a stroll inside the palace.


Seeing Is Believing
Wow... I am so close with China's ancient civilization. The artifacts and antiques are amazing. I got to know their lifestyles and cultures in the past. Still wondering are the figurings of the Tang's Dynasty women really 100% abstract from the females during those period or did they improvise some of the features? Most people know that the aesthetics aspect of females during that period were of plump and voluptuous shapes and when i saw the female porcelain figures I have to agree it is really beautiful...

Their jade carvings were stunning as well...fortunately the old skills were not lost b'cuz till these modern days the carving skills could still be spotted in largely populated China.


Danshui's Fisherman's Wharf
Of all the places that I have visited in Taipei, I adore this place most and have fallen in love with it. It is truly charming and dreamy. The ocean blue sky is enchanting... i love it.

To whoever is planning a trip to Taiwan, you should go visit this place be it whether you are single or attached.


Lovers' Bridge
Just wanted to clarify here, although i edited some contrast feature to the photos but originally it is still well-shot with the nature background. I am just adding some touch to enhance its beauty.

I noticed there were many couples who went there for their wedding photo shoots too and they should. Haha... Well... I wish I could have my wedding photos shoot overseas too, must be unique I think. The best is to have professionals do the make-up and I would just sit and be like a queen, haha... Ladies should know how tedious it is to apply make-ups, so time consuming and tiring, however we still do it to make ourselves looks good.


Vast Sea View
The sunset in Taiwan is earlier than Singapore. It is then around 6pm and we could see the sky turning orange...


During Sunset
Nice timing for us! The sun sets fairly fast and we had to hurried back to the bridge for the memorable shots.


Cherish Every Moments
Luckily we brought a tripod along for these valuable shots. It is a wise investment for the vacation.


At The Wharf
This is an overview taken at the end of the wharf. The mountains, hovering clouds match perfectly with the Lovers' bridge and the lightings...



Night time now and the little pub near the bridge had a singer playing the guitar and singing songs by Chang Yu... I feel sad to leave the place (another reason is I am too tired to walk!). Hopes to visit this place again next time...



Miramar Ferris Wheel
We took the bus back to Danshui mrt station and alight at ShiLing station. Miramar is considered too far if we wanted to walk or take a bus there. So we hired a cab instead. We were trying to find the Ferris Wheel when we reached there and we found it! We took pictures at the large empty car park in front of the shopping mall (another wedding couple spotted taking their shots).

Time is precious and we hurried up to search for the ticketing counter. Tickets were sold at the movie tickets counter. Movies, cafes, restaurants beside the Ferris Wheel? Wow... Honestly speaking, when i saw the height of the wheel, fearing that i would be up there hanging in the sky inside a cabin, I intended back out but i keep psyching myself of how can I not take the ride when I m already there? Hard on my poor guts again after Leofoo Village.

The view is excellent with gorgeous lightings (but huge consumption of electricity, no good) i could see Taipei 101! FYI, the fees is S$7.50 per person.



Taipei 101 Night View and Eslite Bookstore
Alas our last stop, Taipei 101 again because Alvin insist on snapping its night view here. Guess we were a bit late for most of the lightings are out in the building. On the right photo, behind us is the Eslite store, I like their floral boutiques inside.

Well, see? We ran so many places on this day, I definitely no need to worry about putting on weight in this food paradise country, ha ha...



Do Not Disturb
Ha ha ha... I feel so happy! Day mission accomplished! Whew...... Finally can rest and sleep now....after washing up of cuz.
