We took Phoenix to the beach here in Taiwan, for the first time.

Phoenix Goes to the Beach

We had bought her some new toys for playing with sand, and we wanted to show her how to use them.  Once we filled up the wheelbarrow and showed her how to dig in the sand, she started enjoying herself.

It was a perfect day for walking around: occasionally overcast with the sun not too strong.

Day five of my Thailand visit was rather uneventful.  I had some time to kill waiting for Mr. Somkhit to become available the next day.  I wanted to do something but I also wanted to not spend a lot of time traveling and I was sick of buses by this time.  So, I walked around Khonkaen.

First thing in the morning, Oath and his girlfriend took me to a noodle shop in Udon Thani before taking me to the bus station for my trip back to Khonkaen.

I took some of my Chinese language classmates out for lunch the other day.  Where did we go?  To Xiao-hui’s!

Lunch After Class

When we arrived there was very loud karaoke going on inside, so we opted to sit outside.  It turned out to be a good choice because the weather was just beautiful!

Part of the 2010 USA Trip Series

The First Part Of Our Trip

I used to have a wood smoker back in New Hampshire, and I have missed smoking foods in Taiwan (although I do have a smoker in Thailand).  We went in halves with my sister and her husband and picked up this Brinkmann smoker at Home Depot.  I got to use it quite a few times during our visit.  We’ll show you what we put in the smoker shortly.

Recently, Hui-chen and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.  We decided to spend it at the newly-built Sheraton hotel in Jubei.

Sheraton Weekend

The room we stayed in was on the 21st floor.  That is the top floor for rooms.  There is a club on the 22nd floor for the exclusive use of guests on the 20th and 21st “club level” floors.  Our room was luxurious and spacious.

My Chinese class is over.  We had our final exam on Thursday.  After class some of the students decided to go out for the evening and have a little fun.

I’ve been attending Chinese classes at NCTU in Hsinchu.  Recently some of my classmates asked me if I would mind taking them to a place for some good Thai food.  They picked the right person to ask!  A group (which shall remain anonymous in order to protect their academic career) went with me in my car, another in a taxi following, and 2 other friends met us there.  It was an evening to remember!

Class Dismissed!

This was the scene at (what used to be called) “The Blue Sky” (more on this in another article).  Against the wall from L to R is Michael Cannon and Michael Turton.

Last night, Hui-chen and I were invited to a grill party at A-dong’s new place.  This is the time of year when the Lunar Festival is celebrated (according to the lunar calendar) in Taiwan and other places in Asia.  It’s also known as the mid-Autumn festival and people usually have a grill party outdoors.  The weather is normally very nice at this time of year in Taiwan, and last night was no exception.
