(Dateline Taipei part 1)
I don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving (I find it too Western) but I am thankful right now for being in one of my favorite cities.
It’s been a hectic time since I arrived I didn’t even have time to look out of the window on the ride from the airport to the hotel because I was too busy checking emails and trying to make my dual SIM card work.
Tonight’s major event for me was supposed to be the night market party of the Golden Horse. Got there early and checked the night market.
Then I started to feel my colds getting serious. Earlier in the MRT, I heard a reminder telling the public that if they have colds symptoms, they should wear a mask to be considerate to others. On arrival at the airport, I got a scare when they asked to check my temperature. Good thing this isn’t SARS era, but yeah, I hope it doesn’t get worse coz I can’t allow this to ruin my trip! And there’s so much to do!
I saw this too at the nightmarket. Shen Xing Ren, is that your Qin Zi Qi bear?
Oh and I got my schedule for Wednesday next week worked out. Talking with Taiwan’s leading (for me, the only) female impresario; it’s my fourth time to meet her and I always enjoy talking to her, I learn a lot, it’s like being in a special class and learning from a mentor you really look up to.
Then afterwards, the interview with a member of this really big pop group that paved the way for Taiwan pop culture to be known across the region. He is currently promoting his new film and I’m really glad I get to have an hour despite his busy schedule!
Still working out on the rest but yeah, Golden Horse on Saturday in Hsinchu City!
