i had a fabulous weekend (and monday)! it was filled with good food, long drives, lovely friends, cute presents, a cake, good conversations, lots of climbing, and plenty of laughters. how was your weekend? x
people usually underestimate what this little town can offer, but lugang is such a charming town. located in changhua, lugang used to be an important trading port. many old buildings and alleyways are kept in the same, yet crumbling, conditions as it was half a century ago. it’s really right up my alley. the red-tiled lanes are fascinating to me, but for some reason old abandoned houses are the most interesting.
a friend asked why i always wear leggings and not jeans. well, it’s not that i don’t like wearing jeans. i usually wear leggings and tights because i only brought a pair of jeans with me when i came back to taiwan. i never pack jeans for my trips. they are heavy, take too long to dry, and take up too much space in your suitcase. leggings are comparably lighter, compact, and fast-drying. especially when you’re backpacking, or planning on doing a lot of hiking or trekking, you’ll regret bringing denim. i usually wear my jeans on the plane if i do decide to bring a pair with me, and i always opt for dark denim because it can be both casual and dressy.
here is another creation of mine, a crochet headband! i made it with my leftover yarn last winter back in vancouver. when i wore it out i got mixed reviews. i’m not too sure of it myself, but i’m still proud of it because i made it myself =) leave me a message and let me know whether you like it or not.
i live in vancouver and taipei. i love guitar and roadtrips. sunshine and the beach. cupcakes and coffee. indie music and foreign films. i want to scuba dive at the great barrier reef and speak french in paris.
