Going British in Taipei and Glorious Burgers!


Good Evening from Taipei!!!!
So yesterday I took a day away from the studio which was fun as I had a special agenda planned! In the morning I had a few bits and pieces of work to do with a couple of super exciting side projects that I'm working on whilst here in Taipei!Then it was onto hitting up some shopping action in Ximending (which is one of my favourite areas here!)...It was dark so there was neon overload which made me happy and there's so many awesome shops there! It's like Taipei's answer to a mini Harajuku! The evening was especially exciting as I met a friend for dinner...but not just any dinner...a special one.... I've been having mega food cravings so I've been counting down the days to pay the British Pub a visit!!!! We went to 'ON TAP' in the Zhongxiao Dunhua area and I had one of the best veggie burgers OF MY LIFE!!! Veggie walnut burger with Heinz ketchup...this made me so happy! This place serves cider and allsorts...even a bit of quiche!! LOVED IT! Of course we then branched out to a little place up the road for some GLORIOUS ice cream puffs for dessert!

The other day during a return trip back to the amazing fabric market we stumbled upon an exhibition which was literally over the road from the market... Now I don't know the full info as none of the literature they were handing out was in English...but it was a bunch of Architecture students from a local university showing different ways of changing a building's appearance...or something to that effect. It was pretty cool and they had decked the place out with a load of crochet and the likes....also inside was a showcase of conceptual chairs and a few digital features....it was hottt...as I said that's all the info I have on that....so answers on a postcard if you happen to know the full story!!!


I'm off to bed...over and out...

Love Emma
