忍耐 + 掌握人生
Landed in Taipei

I am finally here - in Taipei.

The Australian Team have been very well looked after by Ron Bennett's friend - Beatrice and her relatives. Today, we went to visit Longshan Temple, the oldest temple in Taipei, in the morning. Then in the afternoon, we went to the Taipei city centre for a little walk-around in the shopping district. At night, the team went to Beatrice's home for a real massive dinner.

Well, a picture worths a thousand words. So to save me from typing zillion words, here begins the photo adventure... Enjoy.

  • Taaaaaipeeiiiiiii! yeeeeeeeee!
    Hope you're having fun. Keep us updated! Are you going to keiko before the match?

    Hope you prayed to the right god in the Long-Shan Temple.. There are several corners and each serves a different purpose. For example one corner is for love life, one is for good exam results, and one is for getting pregnant. hee hee

  • Hey Ivan. It is great to be in Taipei.

    The team will have a few keiko sessions in the days leading up to the World Championships.

    I have prayed to all 7 Gods in the Temple. Yes, Yes. I prayed to Guan Gung for a good performance in the WKCs, the study God, and of course, the love God. hehe.
