Taiwan at Christmas / Christmas in Asia / Festive season but no holiday!

Ok, I am not gonna get melancholy. My life is pretty good here. Fine so there is no holiday as such. I will however quickly list reasons why it is GOOD to be here in Taiwan at Christmas :

* It isn’t too cold. No siree! It is lovely and cool, dropping to chilly at best.

* Starbucks! Yes we still have it and it’s Christmas selection of drinks.

* Half days : I only work half days on Thursday and Tuesday ….can’t be bad.

* Decorations. They still make a concerted effort with trees and such….right up until mid July lol. Taipei 101 area has a lot of stuff going on and there are a ton of decorations round there.

* Shopping : Ximending, Shin Kong Mitsukoshi, Xinyi District and Shin Kong Life Tower are just a few areas you can shop at Christmas that have a great atmos and selection.

I am here!!!!
