A full day


One day in which my day was actually very busy, and mostly with social engagements. I went with my friend Stacy to the 樂華夜市 in 永和. Yonghe is a part of Taibei country but it's a seperate city. It seems slightly more relaxed than downtown Taibei. The night market is quite big and apparently is getting more famous. I also met Stacy's friend and had a long conversation about Chinese literature and Taiwanese cinema. I also met up with a language exchange partner. All in all, it was a really good day, good practice for my Chinese although it's also humbling because I still have such a long way to go until I'm fluent.

I also was shown a bookstore by Stacy where I could buy Edward Said in English if I wanted to, and Rey Chow, and Foucault. Instead, I bought Harry Potter 6. I'm not sure what this says about me, but I think it says something.

*laughs* I like the cute figurines. I can't identify the one on the far left or the second one from the right, though... I obviously haven't been spending enough time around the Sanrio crowd. =p
