because I like everyone (duh)

I thought I would start chronicling some of the silly things that S says.

The other day, we ran into a classmate of his on the street with her mom. I later asked who that was.

S: That’s Liu Zhilong. She doesn’t like me! [Says this while smiling.] Me: Oh, why is that?
S: I dunno.
Me: That’s okay, not everyone likes everyone else. Do you like her?
S: Yes! [Looks at me like I’m stupid.] I like *everyone*, Mummy!

I like how 4-year olds think.

Bunny International Christmas Show 2016

We went to our first school Christmas show the other day, organized by the Bunny International Daycare. The kids were encouraged to wear whatever costumes they wanted, whether they were Christmas-related or not. It was total chaos, but fun! Here are some pics of the event, and a short little video at the end:

In case anyone wanted to see what the inside of Impact Hub Taipei looks like! Also featuring the Gogoro battery-swap station… I didn’t know this was going to happen today, but kudos to the videographer, because we did it after only one trial run.

Taipei Children’s Amusement Park

posted in: kids, taipei | 0

Today, we randomly took Bus 41 up to Taipei Children’s Amusement Park! It was on a whim, so we didn’t realize that the bus ride would take over an hour (future note: taking the MRT would probably be faster). At any rate, the amusement park itself was both smaller and better than expected! (These two attributes were not necessarily related.)

Taipei Children's Amusement Park

There’s lots to do for young kids here. While the playground and sandbox seemed very popular (and free), S. loved watching the remote-controlled mini boats in the small pond. However, it was clear that his absolute favourite was driving a motorized mini-car around a small track.

We actually arrived in the late afternoon, and discovered that the Park is free after 4 PM, until closing at 8 PM (entrance is normally NT$30, which you can pay by EasyCard). In fact, all the rides could be paid for by EasyCard, and were generally NT$30 each (though the motorized car was $80). All in all, it was pretty convenient and not too crowded–a good visit in my books…
