A quiet lonely day in Taipei

Taipei was a bit quiet today. There were less cars on the roads. But it was not significantly any different from any other holiday. Many shops and malls were opened unlike first day of CNY in KL. There were however sounds of firecrackers here and there which remind me of home on this day.

Had an early lunch of bread and salad at home before cycling along Heiping road till Daan Forest Park. The vegetarian restaurant at Shida where I normally have lunch was closed and will only return to business on the third day of CNY. The weather was not so bad. It was a bit cold, about 19 degree Celsius,  but just nice for cycling. It's always nice to cycle in this city. There were nice cycling lanes. It's quite safe.

Took a long walk in the park. It's my routine exercise which I'm trying to keep up whenever I have the time. The sky was however a bit dark and by the time I cycled home, it started to drizzle a bit. Fortunately I reached home just in time before it started to rain quite heavily.

My landlady had gone to her son's place in Zhudong, near Hsinchu for the celebrations. My friend Lin went back to Hong Kong and will only return next week. So, I am all alone in this house. Did some reading and now taking a break. Tired. I think I need new glasses. My eyes tire easily these days. Maybe I need more powerful lenses.

Trying not to miss home...and my Chinaman too much at a time like this. Can't get too distracted. Anyway, I don't think anyone misses me. Not even my Chinaman. I'm resigned to that.  Well, doesn't matter. I just need to be focused on my studies. Don't want to waste the money spend to get me here.

Ok, I think that's enough of my ramblings. Sometimes I'm so full of nonsense whenever I'm in this mellow mood. Well, once in a while I do post something totally devoid of politics like this just for the heck of it. Just for my own writing pleasure, so to speak.

I'm going back to my reading now. You all back home have some more CNY fun ya. Don't fight too much over politics. General election is very near. So, just wait for it, vote and be done with it, ok?


  1. Are you long or short sighted?
    Try reading without glasses?


    1. Long or short, I'm as blind as a bat without my glasses.

    2. Have u ever been mellow?12 February 2013 at 01:16

      Its okay. In China most are short sighted and blind like bats. Thats why they are good opticians. There are 1.2 billion chinese and 60 % are yellow bananas.. what more do you want?

      The way you talk about loneliness it is as if you are in the 60s. Dating and finding men are difficult.

      But all that change with the internet, you just put your face in the books of faces and hey you get rated by men!

      The sexual revolution is not the pills but book of women faces. There is no limit to the number of men that you can attract in probabilities. Put up a good pictures and they will come. No need to go to bars, parties or kenduries to see your male sepupu.

      Its all internet now. After you get a man interested in you then the pills come in useful. But the human evolution will never be the same. A girl in algeria can propose to a man in malaysia. A girl in brunei can propose to a man in kl.

      Its not only man who seeks active acquaintance but females too!

      There is no limit and the genetical permutations will create hardy humans. Put that chinaman in kl on back burners. Go burn candles in taiwan. What he doesnt know wont hurt. Most women play the field. No smart women pass the chance of male attention if they can. Thats why the Arabs are so possesive.

      But hey smart man just close one eye because thats the way women are. So hopefully these mellow blogging is just a red herring..hehe.

  2. aiyo BC,kasi ada maruah sikitlah. kalo ur man tak rindu you- dump him! Ada banyak lagi ikan di laut sis, jgan buang masa!

  3. That's not true.
    We miss u Bigcat.

  4. Unsolicited advice from me too - please ignore if you dont agree. Being far from your homeland is hard. You feel everything much more. Family and friends will say "too far to travel" when important things are going on at home and you can feel cut off. Misunderstandings can happen when you aren't able to talk face to face (more than words). Try skyping regularly. Good luck.
