Yesterday, in desperation, I posted a quick announcement about a grill party at Shao–hui’s that she decided to put on at the last moment. I sent out an email to several friends whom I know would be interested. Fortunately a few of them could make it!
I don’t know this Vietnamese gentleman’s name, but he sure is a nice guy. He works for Shao–hui and here is is using a torch to start the charcoal fire. We take it for granted but nearly all of the charcoal in Taiwan and most Asian countries is lump charcoal from real wood.
And finally, they do! Above is the famous Taiwan blogger Andres. Below that’s cousin Becky on the left and Andres’ wife Karen to the right. We are so glad that you guys could make it on such short notice! This is Andres’ version of the story on his blog.
Please note: These people are not green! I shot everything in ambient light for the effect of being there! The outdoor lighting at Shao–hui’s really is green!
Andres contemplates the bottle of Sang Son Royal Thai rum we just killed. Later, I took he, Karen and Becky around to the various Thai places in the area. Currently there are 7 Thai establishments within 2 blocks.
