Ohyea. Taipei 101 is also where people shop..but I din do any shopping at all there coz everything's way too pricey. The foodcourt there is amazing though. Nothing like the Malaysian foodcourt. In general, as many would know, Taiwanese are very passionate about food.
But it is also known not only for its cheap fare, but also its recklessness.

Many thanks for your comments. I agree with you, the puppies should not have been treated like this. We do tell volunteers to ask the public not to do this and when I see it happening I do tell people not to (though sometimes I can get distracted talking to other interested people and miss it.) Your comments have been taken on board and thank you for your interest in the SPCA.

And this was just a random picture I took at the square....people on strike against Chen Sui Bien- President of Taiwan.....They gather DAILY there with sponsored buses.
There's nothing more incredible than people being passionate about human rights and politics. People can make a difference.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.
And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you

with people of many different facades,
hiding when derailed and enraged,
smiling yet desperately summoning courage,
when love becomes a mirage,
fronting a brave face,
when you're actually falling apart......
but don't live without leaving a trace.
