Re: When Are You Getting Married
Haha brother, don't worry, your time will come if you are still single at my age. I just caught a show on Channel U this evening. And it gave me the sudden urge to visit Taiwan again. To go back there and "find" back my soul and to "learn" to appreciate the simplicity of life. I should be flying off the moment when the prices are right for me.

"When are you getting married?" syndrome? haha... I just red a newspaper this morning and it seems the question is a die-hard greeting that single adults are scared of. Anyway, you had a relaxing chinese new year. Good for you. Happy CNY

A very touching entry. Yes I do agree with you - traveling either breaks or strengthens a friendship. I am glad the latter happened to you! Do cherish what you have :)

Hi, I just went through your message. It is very touching. Being a cambodian, i am very much grateful for this humanitarian action during your trip to Siem Reap. Hope the rest will follow. Nataro,

I definitely agree that the guys and girls there are friendly. Like what Colleague 1 mentioned, space is a constraint. If I pay the price, then I would like to stay longer lorh….and not to mention that Deli France is just opposite. That is a heavy threat to them.

They do delivery??? For a start, seating area is too limited. Cake is nice, haven’t tried the food yet, because most of the time when we pass by the place is full. But it is good to have the shop in Toa Payoh, of what we observed, TP has yet to have this kind of eating outlet yet.

Re: Hey!
Yah of coz.. Death railway probably in late November 07. Shall combine that with Bangkok. Realise that my Thai is still super shitty after this trip. Hope that we can have a chance to practise our Thai ya :) Spent 4 days in Udon Thani in September. 9 out of 10 probably have no idea of this place. People continue to associate Thailand with Bangkok and Bangkok with Thailand.

hey hey, i like the part about "joke of the day" but i suppose the joke of the day has got to be how a group of supposedly jovial, loud and outspoken people would clam up suddenly in the company of new acquaintance. "Olam" should pay me money for word-of-mouth advertising.

I saw those helis fly past my house!
Hi! The wonderful wonderful helicopters flew past my house in the North with that huge flag. It was great to see! Thanks for posting the pics!
12th July 2007

Anna, Welcome back to Singapore. It must be pretty hot in Taiwan right now. Hope you had fun. Probably, you can try yahoo to upload your pics. I usually don't share pics online so I'm not too sure which is the better URL for photo sharing. Looking forward to discover another new "side" of Taiwan. Roy

Whydo you choose Taiwan ?
How r u ? Well, I've read through ur 8 days trip to Taiwan and found it interestin, I am a Taiwanese, currently workin for Taiwan's gov. to promote Taiwan's travel, just wonderin why u would choose Taiwan as your travel destination at the first place ? Despite those 12 positive aspects, what else ? I appreciate your answer...

Re: tks
Anna, you are absolutely right. Do bring your tripod along for your Taiwan trip in order to capture the nite shots well. Taipei 101, the Miramar Ferris Wheel, Ximending and the night markets are stunning at night. Good luck and have a nice trip!
13th June 2007

hi roy (u r roy, right?) tks... basically wat u meant was: use the 'nite mode' function only when u think u have steady hands or else put the cam on a tripod. otherwise, the normal 'auto mode' without the flash will do the nite shots jus as well. did i get u right? the australia photos looked great too even from huiping's cam....i will be leaving for my Taiwan hols soon next Friday and hoped to capture some great shots to post on my blog to share.
12th June 2007

Re: hi
Hi Anna, I'm not an expert too but will try to answer your question. Basically, when taking nite pics, I use the "auto mode" but I will turn off the flash light (suppressed the flash light). In this way, the picture will turn out relatively well at night. Once I turn on the flash light, my background are gone. Of course, the nite shots are best captured using "night mode". But then, I don't carry my tripod all the time and I do not have steady hands :P hope it answers your questions and thks for asking. Budokan
