Modern Toilet Restaurant in Taiwan
When I heard this, my first reaction was yuck and how weird eating in a place like that!
Still, I was wondering how it looks like!
It’s a restaurant in Taiwan (more than 10 branches) with a modern-décor.
Actually, the team is toilet. The wall is decorated with a faucet and a shower, tub as the table,
toilet chairs, urinals for the drinks, and commode shape serving pieces.
It was a funny experienced specially the chocolate ice cream,
I felt like shouting ewwww… this tastes like s**t!!! hahahaha!
Sitting at the seats, I guess when I need to use the bathroom, just do it while eating! hehehehe!

It’s been two years when I entered National Taiwan Normal University for my graduate studies, Master of Education, major in International Workforce Education and Development (International Human Resources and Development).
Time, indeed, flies so fast… all of a sudden my foreign classmates will go back to their own countries. We had good times and bad times of course! The best part is not only we learned together but we got the chance to be close to one another. We hang out a lot! Got the chance to visit their countries… shared culture and learned their language…
Here are some photos taken during our pictorial, graduation dinner, and commencement!

Some people come into our lives and quickly go,
Some stay a while, leave footprints in our hearts!
Can miles truly separate us from being friends?
If we want truly to be with someone we love.
Aren't we already there?
Yes, it is right there in our hearts!

My best friend (Pinky) and I explored some places in MRT (Metro) Blue Line. First we had lunch @ Modern Toilet Restaurant in Ximenting. This is the place were the first city was built long time ago. For now, the place known as the hippest district, young generation make is so lively!
(old photo of ximenting/ Pinky and I having lunch)After lunch, we cross along the museum (free admission) called “The Red Playhouse” or “Red Theater” (紅樓劇院). It was built in 1908. It’s known to be as the “market octagon” The first floor now was converted into a small café and shops with some revitalized relics of the island. The second floor is use for monthly exhibit. We didn’t explore much in detail.
We continue our trip to another historical place called "The Lin Family Masion and Garden". According to its history, the forefather of the Lin Family (3 generation) came to Taiwan in 1887 from China. He was a merchant and accumulated some wealth and bought some land. The Lin Family became the wealthiest family at that time.
The house has 5 separate courtyrads. Their home is a fine example of Qing Period houses found in Taiwan.
The place now is owned by the government. Admission is NT$100, but for student like me, I only paid NT$0.50
Next, we're supposed to see the Miniature Museum and Paper Musuem. We lost and we ended in a place called Digital Market, the place where you can find all kinds of electronics... name it, they have them!
introducing HP laptop... pwedeng bed eh!
Since my sis-in-law wants to buy usb external disk,
I had the chance to snapped all the prices... so she could compare them in UK.
That's what happen in One Saturday of November, 2008.
