It was so suspicious, so i google it to find out whether it is a scam or not...
Expected..., someone blogged and commented on the same issue as well. Ha...
Readers of my blog, please be careful.

Weekend in Hsinchu 週末新竹遊
Monday, March 30, 2009
What a Saturday morning, i slept till so late... When i reached Taipei Bus Terminal, it's already 12 o'clock in the aftrenoon. So i took the next bus to Jhudong, and met with Chiang around 2 o'clock. NT140
I went his house to put down my luggage, watching video clips and chit-chating for a while waiting for Jimmy... He went for voluntary service of Tzi-Chi in recycling event.
After that, we went out to Hsinchu town for early dinner.
Lu-wei 滷味 ~NT120
Hey, this is nice... 嘿，這家的滷味好吃...
and the drink... 當然少不了飲料
"Three Brothers of Milk Tea"... (it's milk tea with cincau, pearl and pudding...)
Initially though of going to night market, but the whole day was drizzling, so cannot go for any outdoor activities, i have to cancel my trip to Lavender Cottage. We then went back to Chiang's house for rest. I watched "The Myth" and some "celebrity shows" from TV. Jimmy fall asleep while watching, looked like he's very tired.
We then went to Jimmy place at night, thought of going to visit the "secret garden" near his house. Haiya, still raining no people there...
We went for supper at a porridge shop after watching "Guest Guest Guest" in Jimmy's room. ~NT65. We sent Chiang back afterward.
The drama series in DaAi Channel, i don't like the drama style, and Jimmy didn't understand why i kept on laughing while watching...
Hmmm, walking around to a garden nearby for pictures... nice landscape!
This is a famous track in the garden. 這個是縣福園蠻有名的小道。
Heard that someone fall down from here, so funny.
We then went to Hsinchu town for food trip...
This is the Hsinchu City Art Gallery & Reclamation Hall. As usual, i went inside for souvenir stamp, and the volunteer brief me with the architecture for the building. We went upstair for visiting.., tour for only 1 minute.., we don't appreciate arts. Haha...
She said many students came to study the building architecture, which is considered unique in Taiwan.
Shuangshing (double-star) tian bu la (actually is something like yongtaufu)
This is delicious, reasonable price. We even can had a scoop of soap for free after that.
Cheng Huang Temple 城隍廟
Jimmy said the food in the area almost the same for every stall, so we chosed this one. This is Hsinchu famous food, fried beehoon, gongwan (pork ball) and bakwan (meat ball). Beehoon is so so only, i don't like the floury layer of meat ball. The pork ball is delicious. NT105 (35+35+35)
We then went to buy the Runbing 潤餅 (literally soft biscuit, it is actually popiah lah...) NT35
Ah Zhong Ice Shop 阿忠冰店
We ordered the typical mixture one... NT40
What a nice view at the top of the shop. You can notice that the Cheng Huang Temple is surrounded by hawker stalls, no wonder we cannot see the temple from outside...
Actually i have been here two years ago, but the experience was not the same.
Jimmy sent me to bus station near National Tsing Hua University, i bought a student price ticket which is cheaper, NT105.
I will come again next time.

I went to have Subway Burger for dinner with Banson at Nankang Software Park. We thought of went to buy Starbucks coffee before ordering the food. So i ordered a grande size of affogado with caramel, and he ordered a small daily special coffee. We put our drinks on the dining table at Subway and went for ordering.
買了過後, 先把飲料放在桌上, 然後去櫃檯點餐...
When we came back, we only saw one drink on the table.
"Where is my affogado?"
When i looked around, there is another similar drink with another guy on a nearby table. He smiles at us...
I asked Banson, "is that my drink?"
"I am not sure, but why your drink went missing?", he replied.
It's impossible, the drink was still full and we were not occupying the table, there are still many empty tables around. But why only my drink was taken away?!
咖啡還很大杯, 不可能以為是沒人的然後被丟掉, 我們又沒有占據空間, 旁邊還有很多空桌, 況且為什麼你的卻沒有被收走..?!
I looked at the guy again, he smiled again. He seemed like trying to tell me, "Yes, this is your drink.., hehe.."
So Banson went to buy another cup for me while i sat down and had my Subway burger...
He came back with a new affogado and told me that the Starbucks staff made another free one for me. We were so pity...
Do you think the guy drank your small coffee too? I think yes, because the small one was rich in coffee bitterness, but the affogado was rich in coffee with caramel sweetness, so he took the sweet one.
(Affogado is a nice drink, its taste is different from bottom to top, bitter to sweet on different layer, and when you mix it all throughly, the taste is just perfect! You can order one next time.)
你覺得你那小杯的他有喝過嗎? 應該是有... 因為小杯的比較苦, 大杯的有咖啡跟焦糖的甜味, 所以他把甜的拿去喝了...
(Affogado很好喝, 從杯底到杯面的味道都不一樣, 從咖啡的苦澀到焦糖的甜美, 很有層次. 當妳把它攪拌均勻, 味道真是棒極了! 下次可以點看看喔!)
Argg.., the guy even walked pass us... darn...
Looked like he is a psycho...
Alright, forget about it.
After sending Banson to bus station (he wanted to go to Yilan), i went back to lab by scooter.
Tomorrow i will be going to visit Chiang and Jimmy.
小B要去宜蘭, 載了他去搭車後, 我就騎車回去了...

Earth Hour 地球時刻
Thursday, March 26, 2009
This annual international event created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), held on last Saturday of March, was undertaken as a measure to reduce global warming and raise awareness on global climate change.
How to participate in this event?
Just turn off the non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour on this Saturday (from 8.30 p.m to 9.30 p.m.), regardless households or businesses.
So are you joining?
I am joining as i will not be at home during that time... haha...
這是由環保團體世界自然基金會發起的活動是一個全球性的活動, 在每年三月的最後一個星期六晚上開始維持一小時, 希望藉此活動能推動電源管理，減少二氧化碳的排放量，並減少過量電燈所引起的光污染問題。要怎麼慘加呢? 就在該時段內(晚上8.30至9.30)關上電燈及不必要的耗電產品一小時, 無論你是家庭還是商界用戶.
我應該會加入啦.., 因為那時候可能沒在家, 所以就根本不會用電... 哈哈!
Taiwan government is encouraging locals to reduce the energy and carbon consumption.., so every public agency is participating. So we are encouraged to switch off unnessary electrical appliances when not in use, and also switch of the light when we are away for more than an hour in the lab. Errr.., sometimes i wonder how much energy can be saved by doing so, at least the authority should publish a report regarding this so that the people will know its significance. Furthermore, it is a good way to educate the young generation on saving the earth resources.
Hmmmm, there will be lantern festival held annually in some big cities of Taiwan in conjunction to Chinese New Year. Those lantern shows i visited thus far (either in Taipei organised by Taipei City Hall or the national level one which is touring in different county every year) were successful. If you are visiting Taiwan around CNY, do not miss the event. Those lanterns and decorations were attractive and impressive. Ironically the event consume a lot of electricities to light up the bulbs and lights. So, the electricity we saved for the whole year will be compensated by this annual event is it?
I don't know, just do our best to save the electricity and earth resources...
話說臺灣政府鼓吹人民節能減碳, 連公家機關也在響應. 所以所內都要求我們隨時把不需要的電源關掉, 若外出超過一小時, 也要把實驗室的燈關掉. 呃, 有時候我在想這樣能夠節省很多電量嗎? 至少有關單位應該提出一些數據報告來讓大眾明白其重要性, 更何況也可以藉此機會教育年輕的一代珍惜地球的資源.
哈, 其實每年各大城市都會在農曆新年期間主辦燈會. 在我參觀過的燈會當中, 無論是臺北市政府主辦的, 還是國家級巡迴輪辦的臺灣燈會, 都很成功. 如果你有在過年期間來臺灣玩, 記得不要錯過喔. 那些花燈真的很漂亮, 也很迷人. 不過, 燈會真的耗電很大, 看過就知道了. 哈, 所以全年的節能減碳, 看來是為了這些燈會而省的嗎? 我亂說的啦...
別想太多, 做就對了, 我們本來就應該盡可能減少消耗地球資源的, 不是嗎?
