this sunday..
Bro, i changed at tw intl airport, i changed at 22.17. I think i changed at the wrong place. The recommended one is after immigration point. I changed at the one in between immigration point.

Those want to buy stuffs, buy it before immigration point. After immigration point, no more shop except a small eating area.

just came back from taiwan!

in the day the temperature is 27-29C, at night it drops to 24C, i agree with pinkieekamie - the weather is windy. at night its cooling.

the news mentioned that there will be typhoon today 03 oct. i'm lucky to arrive in sg yesterday!

fisherman's wharf shops are almost all close when i arrive at 4.30 for the sunset. got really bored. went to danshui old street via the ferry located on the right. 50NT only! it brings you to bali then danshui old street.
