A Walk around the Neighborhood

This is a bamboo bank with the inscription Ping An.  Not sure why someone would leave a piggie bank out on the side of the road. Of course, I didn't touch it to see how much cash was inside as I don't wish to marry a ghost or whatever.

The new Ikea in Taichung is coming along nicely. This photo is about a month old. 

Pretty neighbor lady getting ready for a New Year party.

Entrance to someone's estate.

Street View.

Covered front yard = very little grass to mow.

Happy Year of the Elephant...wait, that's not right.

Waiting for the lanterns to arrive.

A Green Tunnel, citified. 

And still the buildings are popping up.

I'm a big fan.

Sexy filter.

I haven't noticed this sign being ignored yet. 

The John.

Crane, Crane. Take me on out of this town.

After awhile, you come to accept speling mistaks. 

The sum total of our side yard.

Thick foliage in the front yard of our apartment building.

We've got gas.

Snakes in a chain.

Pirated bread picture.

There is a sign that says no photography. Unfortunately, I didn't pay attention to it and incurred the wrath.

Bakin' Bread

Rooftop garden.

One of my favorite pics from Taiwan ever. 

This Korean joint has sadly left the neighborhood.

Anybody lose a bunny?

Rectangular manhole covers.

Bathrooms to the left.

This is the front of the new Ikea. Maybe. The guard had no idea.

The National Pasttimes

I only wish they sold clothes like this in my size. BOL= Buss Out Laughing according to The Urban Dictionary, which you should feel free to look at at some time in the future. Not now.

Shopping is not the full contact sport it is in America, at least I haven't seen any violence in a little big box store. Or Costco. There's plenty to see, though nothing to rival the best of WalMart.
A Bat and a Typo on the same shirt. I'll have to take more pictures of this. 

New Year, New Duds. 

What's missing?

Fashion! Yeah!
Not sure why people would buy red envelopes as they are given out in every conceivable store.
Three months' worth of lottery receipts. Guess how much money was won. Go ahead. Guess. 
Fantastic homemade kimchi imported from Korea. Best I've ever had.
Shopping for Crabs.
Half a waffle with syrup drops lovingly added by my daughter.
The lady at the Apple store said no one had ever purchased an iPad with change. Frank saved his coins for three years and is now the proud owner of an iPad 2.
