Usually when one talks about nightlife in Taipei..i think most of us think of night markets?
With good reason cos they have really good night markets! However since i just wrote about Shilin Night Market less than a month ago [see here], i wont tell you about my trip there this time.
So where did i go instead? No i didnt go clubbing or drinking..Instead i went to the bookstore! Haha no seriously…
I LOVE books!
This bookstore stocks books in mandarin, english and japanese!!
I spent AGES browsing through the books.
Oddly the bookstore doesnt have separate sections like english books, japanese books and chinese books.
Instead they have the usual sections like “travel” and all the travel books in all different languages are placed in it. It makes it a little complicated but least i can compare the books easily.
Popped into the attached cafe for a break…
I had an ice coffee [HUGE MISTAKE! cos i was awake for AGES. I dont normally drink coffee. I have drunk less than 5 cups in the last 10 years. Not sure what i was thinking]
Husband also got some scones to share with me <– but i didnt have any in the end cos they gave whipped cream from a can instead of real cream…haha i am so picky XD
There was a crazy amount of moths which were attracted to the ceiling lamps XD
You might think all i buy is cosmetics..but its not true. I’ll let u in on a secret..
This was what i was most excited to find…
Yes they are indeed FILES. I got this odd obsession with filing. Seriously i file EVERYTHING in transparent pocket files. And i loooove new ones XD Before you say..oh pish..cant u buy these files in Hong Kong? Well yes and no! i found one with 80 pockets and it didnt look completely ugly [usually the ones with tons of pockets are black and boring]
Oops did i ramble? Files is a weird obsession of mine. So i better stop now before i scare any of you XD
Anyway we popped back to the hotel around 4am where i spent the next 4 hours wide awake watching weird infomercials on TV which i didnt really understand anyway….Never drinking coffee again. Not at 2am anyway.
Side note..ever notice how the ugliest bags/shoes are sold on infomercials?
Last post on Taiwan next and then the Taiwan haul post <3
In other news, Elle Magazine [Hong Kong issue] is giving away a card case OR pouch featuring the new Paul and Joe summer print. I snuck a quick pic at the store

I may love my kpop but i can never stop loving my jpop XD [its a inbuilt biasedness]
