空調 Kōngtiáo (air conditioning) Refugee

My plan when I got up this morning was to find a shopping mall or some place to just hang out and enjoy some a/c.  I got some breakfast at the breakfast place, and then set off on the MRT to find some place to chill out.  Well, I didn’t find a mall.  I ended up at a coLffee shop with no wifi, so I studied my lesson and struck out again.

My solution today was to just sit on the the brown line train, which is elevated for much of the route.  I went all the way down to Taipei Zoo, and then back up to the municipal airport, before deciding to come back to my neighborhood.  It was a nice ride.

For lunch I went to a cantonese roast place on 安居街.  The place was a mess, but the food was good, and they asked before they put crap on my rice, so I was able to say please no crap on my rice!

Home for a nap, and then another adventure:  find filipinos.  I found the Little Manila, it’s the neighborhood around St. Christopher’s Catholic Church, of course.  Little Manila is in the bar district, and I think I saw the place my friends used to own.  Later, I ducked into a store and ate some bbq.  I saw a place that had tapsilog in the mornings, for 60 kuai.

After the pinoy adventure, I  met Aussie L for Indonesian food, and later a drink.  Back home by 8pm

The subway system here has great cell phone reception.  Also, it has breastfeeding rooms.

The “Men at work” sign features a man with huge nose in a rice farmer hat, with hands in his pockets.  With a tiny shovel that he’s not really holding, he pokes a big pile of something.  It’s an interesting variation on the Man feeding Whale.

Do NOT. Mess around.  On the escalators.

晚上一粒,早上不便秘。  Take a pill in the evening, NO constipation in the morning!  Yay!  Hey, wait, do you see a dog nun sitting on the toilet, reaching for some tp?

“Ah yah,” says formerly-constipated Sister Dog, “that came out real nice.”

This elevator is for wheelchair access, people buying babies, people with beer guts, people at drinking fountains, and people delivering kegs.

This Mexican restaurant is a block from my house.  We’ll see.  This evening I was at another place that had “Maxican food,” and the “burrito” looked like an abomination.

You can choose a sitter or a squatter.  Up to you.
