2016 in a nutshell

January

I greeted New Years with Anna-Lisa, Vee and a bunch of others at someone's flat - to be honest, we were afraid we won't make it there before midnight. But yes, NY started off well and on January 1st, Anna-Lisa cut of her hair (with my blessings, of course).

New Year's luck

Yonghe Temple
I had a Monday off yesterday, so me, Vee and Alan went to the Yonghe Temple.
I love the smell of incense sticks. 
Beautiful experience, no matter how many times you visit.
//
Esmaspäev oli Hiinas kõigil vaba, nii et haarasin Vee ja Alani ning läksime Yonghe templisse.
Mulle ikka õudselt meeldib sealsete viirukite lõhn.
Ilus elamus, ükskõik mitu korda ka ei külastaks.

Bye '16, hi '17!


 Happy New Year!
新年快乐!
Head uut aastat!
С Новым годом! 

I am very aware that I'd been inactive with my posts in December - I swear, it was a busy one! 
Enjoying my 3 days off right now, drinking coffee with some Miles Davis tunes and am so ready for 2017.
//
Olen vägagi teadlik, et olin detsembris väga ebaaktiivne blogimises - võin vanduda, et see oli üks hullumeelselt tegus kuu!
Hetkel naudin 3-päevast puhkust (esmaspäev on vaba!), kuulan Miles Davis't ja joon kohvi. 2017, ma olen valmis.

Rääkisin esmaspäeval kunstilise direktoriga (CCD) tööl, et kui jube on detsember.

Travel // Via phone

 Taipei 101


I'm well aware I'm behind with blogging!
This will likely be the last batch of Taiwan pics, after which I'll do a recap-post of what I've been up to for the past October (aye, how tie flies!!!)
Work & school, all that stress, phew.

More bits of Taipei

streets of taipei
One thing I really loved about Taipei - the narrow alleys with all these cute lush plants, vintage shops and cafes.
//
Mis mulle eriti Taipei puhul meeldis - pisikesed kitsad kõrvaltänavad, kus igal nurgal olid potitaimed, second hand poekesed ja kohvikud.

Sun Moon Lake, PT. II

taiwan
Day two at Sun Moon Lake - after breakfast, we headed out to see the Wenwu Temple (日月潭文武庙)not far from where we stayed.
The temple is huge, although not very ancient, as one might expect. Truth is, this one was rebuilt in the 1960's to appear bigger and more 'Chinese'.
//
Teine päev Sun Moon Lake'i juures - peale hommikusööki läksime uudistama Wenwu templit.
Tempel oli üsna muljetavaldavalt suur ning üsna uus, mida ehk poleks osanud oodata. Kuigi asukoht on iidne, siis praegune templikompleks ehitati üles kuuekümnendatel - peamiselt selleks, et muuta tempel suuremaks.
