Tear Drops for Japan

These drops remind of Japan...

What a beauty in its simplicity...

Always looking down for humility...

The tears, the pain, the agony... hang in there...

Don't lose hope, look up for the tears not to fall on the ground...

Soon, you'll have a brand new beginning!

Praying for the Victims
of Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan!

A Glimpse of Shida Park

One of our favorite parks to hang out during our graduate student days.

We used to sit and play around in this red loop, and going to the end left is used to be our office (International Human Resources) were I spent so much time for my Business Algebra  :(. I'm glad I had a helpful classmate from Romania :)

Near this park is National Taiwan Normal University (actually the name Shida is the short name of our school~Shi Fan Da Xue) and Shida Night Market. Around the vicinity are places to eat, we used to explore all kinds of restaurant around the world (with a little bit transition), for students' price!

Reflection from Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall

Reflection of the Memorial Hall
I've been in Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall several times, and I don't even know it has a Chinese Garden with man-made pond. I was with my friend when she told me to go and take a rest in a garden. 

A Gazebo and foot bridge reflection.

Remembering the incident that happened on February 28, 1947

From dictatorship to democracy

That's why February 28 is a holiday in Taiwan

Let's walk in this footsteps bridge and see

What's Going On Lately?

I'm having a cappuccino in a paper cup as usual in Chinese Class. We're having summer and winter in a spring, that's why a lot of people here are getting sick.

I'm feeling alright, a bit excited for the upcoming visit of hubby here next week. I have to lessen my on-line blogging for a while, at the same time it's my finals in Chinese Class.

On my mind is our upcoming trip to the famous Taroko Gorge in the middle of Taiwan. I booked our tickets on-line and haven't received the voucher yet. I hope the travel agent wouldn't cancel it. (Maybe they can't have their quota).

"I've lived to bury my desires,

And see my dreams corrode with rust;

Now all that's left are fruitless fires

That burn my empty heart to dust."

A Glimpse of 228 Peace Park (2)

Well, here are more scenes that can be seen in 228 Peace Park
The building at the back is the National Taiwan Museum.

The gazebos I've shown yesterday in a different angle.

The pagoda is right in the middle of the pond/lake.

There's also a small lake with foot bridge and fountain.

Part 3 will be Memorial Museum and Sculpture

A Glimpse of 228 Peace Park (1)

I had an appointment at the hospital last week and I came there a bit early so I decided to capture this park. At the back of the OPT Department is the 228 (February 28) Peace Park. The park is just right NTU Hospital MRT Station. Here's a glimpse...

There are four Chinese Gazebos and in the middle is the Pagoda. Behind these Chinese architecture is the National Taiwan University Hospital Out Patient Department.  

There are also  a lot of squirrels and doves. They are not afraid of people, actually, they come nearer like looking for food.  Here's one I captured eating red tomato.

Girls Have Fun with Shadows

Our shadows were taken at CKS Memorial Hall when we watched the Luminarie (Light Shows). We didn't actually went inside the show, we were on top of the hall and just watched from outside. Those dancing lights made us play with our shadows :)

I was the photographer and if you can see the person raising here left hand, that was me :)

A Glimpse of Chinese Garden in CKS

Beautiful trimmed trees, pond full of large fish, a bridge, and one of the halls at the background

Another side view with the main memorial hall roof at the back. I love the splashing sound of water.

Flowers are starting to bloom, what a refreshing felling :)

Happy Weekend!

Taking On-line Review Test

I'm having cappuccino in a paper cup and purple rice. I'm actually in the digital/library room in basement 4 in our school doing my on-line Chinese test. I didn't finish the test since the computer wasn't cooperating this morning. I just have to take test before the deadline on Tuesday. Yes, we're allowed to eat in the room :)

I'm feeling good since Spring is here and that's my favorite time of the year. But it has been raining since Monday and temperature went down (seems like winter again). I did enjoy some of the places with blooming flowers all over.

On my mind, well, nothing much. I don't think much of the future now, I'm just living one day at a time and enjoying the "now".

 For me, Life is too short to be worried with little things...

How about you? Life is too short.....(your answer please!)
