Taipei pt 3

Saturday and Sunday

Alright, made it to Australia, but nothing exciting has happened so far, I'll catch up on Taiwan...

Saturday

On Saturday we woke up late... again, and we went to the Ximen area to a place called Magic Curry. It's Kenny's favorite place so we decided to check it out. He was right in his recommendation, it was fantastic, I had never had non-Indian curry, and this stuff was pretty good. After we stuffed ourselves... again, we went to go check into our hostel.

The hostel was right next to Taiwan National university and it was in a really fun area, lots of bars and shops. It was pretty small but it was cute and clean, it was called the Cocolate Box Hostel. Here's some pics of us laying around

We all ended up taking naps, which was bad for me because when I nap, it makes me feel worse, so when everyone was ready to get up for dinner, i wanted/ needed to sleep some more. So Jess, Yusin and Matt went to grab some food and go to the night market while I caught some zzz. After waking up, I watched some "How I Met Your Mother" (pretty cute show), then I decided to explore the neigborhood. I ended up at this super cute/ pretty coffee place, ordered a decent cafe mocha and read my book for awhile, it was nice.

Met back up with everyone at the hostel, and we got ready to go out to the night club Luxy. Matt bought a new shirt for the ocassion and us girls got into some dresses. We took a taxi there and the place was hopping. It was decent price to get in, plus we got free drink vouchers so that was cool. This place looked like it belonged in vegas. Lasers, two stages, girls dancng on tables, it was fun! We started off in the hip hop room and got our drink on. We danced around for about an hour, waiting for midnight when the bartenders were SUPPOSED to juggle fire, but they didn't so we headed over to the House room. It felt like we were home, the DJ was playing good music, but no one was on the dance floor, so the four of us went wild and started dancing like crazy. Sure enough, we got the floor a little packed and the energy picked up. Jess and I were taking a break with Yushin, enjoying our drinks, and we noticed these two taiwanese girls watching Matt. He was doing his crazy dance, smoking his cig all alone on the floor, and the girls were just watching him and giggling over him. They finally went out on the floor to dance and then Matt turned and looked at them and the SCREAMED and ran away. Matt was too much to handle apparently.

After a few hours, Jess' friend Kelly and his two friends met up with us. We danced for a bit in the House room, then we moved back to the Hip Hop room and went and danced on the stage. We stayed there until around 3am, then We got in a cab and stumbled home to the hostel.

Sunday

Matt Jess and I woke up to meet Yushin and her friends for lunch. We went to this beef noodle soup place that was pretty tasty.

After that Yushin went to go hang out with her cousin, and Me, Matt and Jess went back to the hostel to nap. Yes, there was a lot of napping on this trip. We pull ourselves from bed and went to go find Jess a strapless bra for her sexy photo shoot the next day. We went to this super fancy Japanese mall, where everything is a million dollars! Not really, but it felt like it. Matt and I watched some ridiculous bra commercials in the bra section while Jess was trying stuff on. Selling bras is a serious occasion, because the ad involved crying and wet t-shirts and everything. After Jess was done, we headed down to the food court and got our first taste of Mos Burger, an asian fast food chain that pretty yummy. We got this beef burger thing, with the buns made out of rice, it was really good.

Since we were all so lazy we decided it would be fun to see a movie. We chose Fast Five since it seemed pretty fun and not too serious. How can you watch the Rock and Vin Deasle go at it and not have a good time? After that, we called it an early night and headed back to the hostel. Jess needed to get some beauty sleep before hers and Yushin's big photoshoot!
