The last day in Taiwan! So sad, going back on the next day le. Today we are going to Chuan Yi Centre~ full name of the place is Chuan Tong Yi Shu Zhong Xin. (傳統藝術中心）I
In the morning, we went to have breakfast in a breakfast shop. Taiwan breakfast is very nice!
The breakfast was good and cheap too! 這就是我的早餐！好吃咧~
After breakfast, we visited YX house. Before going to his house, he keep telling me that I will hiam his apartment too small, too old, and I might not want to live in his house in future.
Actually his house is ok la, just like a 3-room flat but it's abit old. Come to think of it, most tw appartments are old leh cuz they don't repaint it after they built it.
This is the market below YX's house. 詠翔傢樓下的菜市場。
After visiting YX's house, we setted off to Yilan~ 去過他的傢后我們就要到宜蘭去了~
On the way, we went past one of YX's masterpiece in the city of Taipei.
Yap, this is it, made by YX. This is actually his other full time job, making models for advertisements. Sometimes he makes props for opera troupes too but not many opera troupes can afford such expensive props. For example, remember the 3 headed monster in White Snake by MHY? That 3 headed monster was also done by YX and his boss and that thing costed MHY $25,000. Sing dollars!
有時前面的車那麽慢，你要跟它保持距離，只好開慢過60。 如果開標準的 速度又不能跟前面的車保持距離。你說是不是很無聊？政府要保護隧道的牆壁是嗎？怕有人把它撞花啊？
This very super silly tunnel is call the snow mountain tunnel. Why is it so very stupid? because it has unrealistic regulations which is sometimes not feasible to follow~ First of all, they spent a hell lot of money to build this 12.9km tunnel then they do not allow ppl to use it! It was built solely for the government officials to use when they go yilan for holidays. This is very dumb and of cuz ppl start complaining, they then open it up for public.
Then there are these silly rules like you can't drive faster than 70km/h nor can you drive slower than 60km/h. You must also keep a standard distant away from the car in front using the lights in the tunnel as estimation. That is very dumb cuz YX came across a very slow driver in front. He needed to keep distant from him and yet maintain at a speed higher than 60km/h. If he maintain the speed at above 60km/h, he will get closer and closer to the car in front.
Fan lor! And stupid lor!
I keep shouting,"Lower than 60 le! too near to the car infront le!"
Make YX very stress also.
A petrol station in Yilan, I don't know why I took this photo also. Maybe becuz I want to blog that the petrol station there very generous, whenever we top up our petrol, they will give us mineral water. Not 1 bottle, not 2 bottles.. but 10 bottles at the highest record! That time we top up NT1400 and they gave us 10 bottles.
The first thing I saw in the Chuan yi centre is this poster. My god.. I want so much to listen to Yu Kui Zhi LIVE! haiz... his voice is so super duper powerful lor. Look at him, so dashing right? Pekin opera lao sheng are always so dashing!
Lao ma's favourite, GZX~ 老媽子最愛的歌仔戲！
There is a puppet exhibition in the centre and there were lots of dua ban puppets there. I was not allowed to take photos but i didn't know. So I took the above photos.
Then we saw a parade, fishies getting married! 哇塞，有婚禮派隊哦！
YX said that one of the pink dancers is his friend but I don't know which one. Tough job, it's so hot and they have to dance in that thick costume!
lao ma said that the bride is quite pretty and the groom quite handsome. Stupid YX don't like me to comment that other guys are handsome lor.
A street in the centre. Looks familiar?
Another dua ban puppet! 多一個大扮木偶！
My god, which lady is that hiding behind the thin sash in such a sexy pose?
Hammer trying to play with the top but he is too lousy. It doesn't turn at all!
Lao ma took photo with Xu Ya Fen and Shi Hui Jun! hahah.. big shots leh~
I was asked to take this photo with YX lor. Stupid YX everytime make me angry. I don't want to take photo with him lor!
My favourite Kunqu! Unfortunately, I didn't get to see any kunqu in TW. Haiz... I wish to see kunqu live lor.
Lao ma was feeding the old woman guava juice! hahah.. funny.. and what is that stupid yx doing? I was angry with him lor and he is trying to play a fool with me.
After going to the ChuanYi Arts Centre, we went to the god of fortune temple to watch Lanyang's performance. Took some photos there and I will put them up.... soon.
