Some caffeinated links

Merry X’mas from MOS Burger. 🙂

I’m struggling to finish a post, grrr, so I thought I’d take a break from it, and post this quick one to get some thoughts out of my head, and have a small sense of self-achievement from pressing Publish, haha. 😁

I wish I could send a little something (like stationary stickers 😆) to everyone following this blog, or enjoying things (and sometime nonsense) I share on my other social media outlets, but that’s logistically a bit challenging unless I could enlist some little helpers the way Santa Claus does.  Continue reading Some caffeinated links

Follow the bookstores

At Eslite Pier 2 誠品駁二.

Wednesday evening, at Eslite Pier 2 誠品駁二, coloring books are still on display… Should I get one for the four day long Dragon Boat Festival 端午節 week-end?

I wasn’t planning to write about All Day Roasting Company (ADRC), but then, I was 摸魚ing “practicing” my 閱讀 on fb, so I might as well have something to show for it. Continue reading All Day Roasting Company (tpe)

Minsheng Community Urban Garden æ…ˆæ©çœ·æ‘的社區園圃

Location-tagged as “最美麗的社區…”, meaning “the most beautiful neighborhood”. Local residents are undoubtedly proud of their community. (source: @dearclarissa)

Community urban gardens have become quite the craze in the “Western World”, so much that many cities even have waiting-lists to get a plot! For some reasons, I was under the impression that the Minsheng urban garden was a long-time fixture of the neighborhood, but looking back at the picture above, dating from the beginning of 2015, it actually appears to be a recent project.
