November 5, 2006 - For the month of November, the Taipei Flower Society put on a show in Daan Park. And when they put on a show, they put on a show. They transformed the park into a blooming oasis of color and light. The only thing I could have done without was these flower pot robot thingies. They creeped me out.

Rainbow heart arches. And they're all gone now. When they removed all the exhibits, it was like *crickets*. It was like 'why bother going to the park anymore?'.

Yea, it was a SoCal, erm, I mean southern Taiwan quake. Didn't feel it at all up here.

My family in Kaohsiung might have felt it, but my uncle was up here. I know because at the time of the quake, I was trying to stay awake in a Starbucks, studying for a test the next day, after my uncle invited me to a company dinner, and as usual, proceeded to get me drunk.
