Lukang and Back

Location | Taichung, Taiwan

So, I’m a little bit sick. I thought it was allergies, but nope, it’s a cold. Sore throat, runny nose, cough. Awesome.

Today I went to Lukang, a town in the outskirts of Taichung. There’s a big Matsu Temple there. We went for Matsu worship at the various little shrines. Matsu is the patron saint of travelers (especially those who are sea-faring). [If you are interested, I’ll wiki link it later]. We didn’t stay very long, but we also went to eat their specialty – everything oysters. We ordered oyster omelette (which sadly, sucked), fried oyster and leek pancake, oyster porridge, fried oysters and fried shrimp balls.

I wasn’t very hungry. :( Not much of an appetite since I’m sick.

Afterwards we walked through the historic district and bought a few random souvenir type items. Nothing really outrageous, some glass figurines anyway.

Then we headed back to Taichung where I took a 2 hour nap before going to Shinkong Mitsukoshi to do some shopping. We had Chun Shui Tang’s Kungfu Noodles (sounds awesome right?) and some bubble tea before walking around. I’ve never really liked shopping in department stores. I can never find anything I want…

So we left and I met up with Doris at a bowling alley where we bowled, played the claw games, played Taiko: Drum Master, basketball, and air hockey. I’ll definitely miss Doris, she’s pretty awesome. :)

Anyway, so now I’m back home and tomorrow I’m getting something special done. I’ll show pictures later. I hope the pictures aren’t weird. :) I just took an antihistamine so time to pass out.
