Knowing there’d be some idle time before the fireworks, I had earlier in the afternoon stopped by Wu Pao Chun 吳寶春 to pick up some supplies for the evening. I really ought to dedicate an article to Wu Pao Chun one day, as I’ve grown to quite enjoy what he does. It’s not that his breads are out-of-this-world mind-blowing good, but it has become a kind of comfort food for me, and his baguettes usually always retain that crunchy crispy crust 😍.
So after walking around for a while to check out all the excitement going on, we found a spot and sat on the cold tarmac around 11pm, started digging in the pile, pacing ourselves to make it last just right before the fireworks started.
Experiencing the fireworks at the feet of 101 was exciting, although all the spectators there do miss out on the choreography of the show and the music that goes along with it. To enjoy the latter, I believe that you need to be in the vicinities of the Taipei City Hall.
Here are some other random snapshots of the night.
Best 2015 wishes to everyone! 😘
