Taiwan: 傳奇星 ★ a Corner Cafe

This taiwan trip was highly made possible because of 潘玮柏 2014 Kingdom of Eve 伊殿園 Concert. A concert that he had been waiting for and share the love together with his fans at 臺北小巨蛋 once again. Previously when there’s news of him retiring at the age of 36, jinfeng and I decided we should just fly over to Taiwan and catch it before, its too late. And this is why after 5 years, I am back to Taiwan :) Definitely, no one expected, and looking at his recovering and slowly back to his working mode… I am so glad. Nothing beat a healthy body. Don’t blame yourself too much, everything happen for a reason… and definitely, I will be back next year! 瑋柏,小巨蛋,明年見!我一定會飛去的!我和你有約喔!I am already looking very forward to my next taiwan trip, though its not in my holiday plan next year, in fact, I have already planned well for my next year trip, and definitely its gonna burst my budget of the year. I will work double hard, harder than 2014, to earn more :) 你這麼加油這麼拼,我也不能輸你喔!

We continued our plan of visiting a cafe before the concert “start”… and here we are at a Corner Cafe (傳奇星) which is opened by Andy and Blackie. It wasn’t too easy to find, we took a cab over from a station, its always easier to return from a cafe, than heading there. I think we made a right choice, because, when we headed back to the Taipei Arena and 101 its pretty far by walking…. though it actually look pretty near. Did we walked at least 45minutes to 101? haha!

But honestly, I don’t think I wanted to pay 150TWD for something like this. Its a little expensive. But deserved a good try.
At least, I don’t need to wait 1hour and I have a seat outside the cafe :)

Taiwan: 吉马陈蚵仔面线大王


Whether you have been to taiwan before, there’s something that most people will talk about. And that’s 蚵仔面线 (Oyster Noodles). I have ate the popular one at XiMenDing which I personally think is quite nice. My friend told me there’s one that we shouldn’t missed. And I know why after visiting.

Taiwan: StayReal Café by Gabee

StayReal probably very familiar among May Day fans as the shops are opened by one of their members. StayReal is supposed to be a creative shop that have collaboration with different artists to produce really pretty clothings. Some of their collaboration are Japan fashion designer Jun Watanabe as well as Hong Kong 公仔 artist Kenny. Which eventually, they captured the heart of the youngsters and people who loves street fashion and at the same time, bringing them another side of creatives and arts.

The cafe that located at 台北東區, is a combination of art gallery with sense of creative retail boutique. At the same time, you can always order and enjoy a cup of latte. Walking into the cafe, you get to see different art pieces and 公仔 that they had collaborated with. Somehow, its like a modern art cafe that give you everything from a cafe to art culture.
