news: JoB is on Bloglovin

February 19, 2010

You can follow me on Bloglovin. I’m still working it all out but it looks similar to Google Reader but more like a social networking site.

If you really want to get those fingers in the button jar then join the JoB page on Facebook.

I promise I will soon post about my camping trip to Liyu Lake and a unique little cafe/B & B that resides along the lake’s shores.

I hope you had an awesome Chinese New Year break. I’m sad that it will be over so soon.

I was reading in the latest Taiwan What’s Up newsletter that Taichung has it’s own Chinese New Year shopping street. And it’s just down the road from my house. I visited Dihua Street in Taipei in 2009 and I was over-awed by the sites, smells, sounds and tastes. Particularly the tastes, as you can sample different traditional and international snacks from pretty much every vendor. I’m excited that I’ll be able to check out Taichung’s equivalent this time round.

Visit Tianjin Road (Section 2) in Taichung’s Beitun District during 5-16 February. The bonus about this market is the opportunity to purchase cheap clothing, as I did earlier in the year on a visit to the street.
