北台灣(台北往北)一日遊
多虧台灣第四台的福,今天我的幽閉恐懼症到中午才發作  (台灣人為什麼要去電影院看電影?)只剩下短短半天的時間,我們只能往北跑。
先看影片:

我的半天車遊行程(台北景美出發):

果然名不虛傳,這裡的蛋糕真材實料,除了反式脂肪外,發胖中還可以安慰自己說至少有吸收到一點營養,因為地瓜酥裡面滿滿的地瓜,起司蛋糕真的是重乳酪,芋頭蛋糕吃得到一塊塊的芋頭!媽媽咪呀!我一次吃了六塊。

  • 第二站:野柳

我第一次去野柳是小學新聞說女王頭要斷時。不過就像威尼斯跟很多網路相傳要消失的世界美景。我們長命的女王還健在。

  • 第三站:野柳(萬里)漁港吃海鮮:

到這不吃海鮮真是對不起自己。海鮮高膽固醇。但也有人說能讓你晚上嚇嚇叫。據說拳王李小龍是在床上黑皮的時候不知是太興奮心血管還是腦部出問題暴斃。反正都是一樣的結果,那高膽固醇跟快樂你選哪個?比起膽固醇,我比較相信海鮮的蛋白質,就像比起壞人,我比較相信人性本善。

我憑嘗只去乾淨的餐廳,不過附近找不到。我們選了一家漁村海鮮餐廳,點了一盤蝦,一盤透抽,一盤海鮮炒麵,一整隻石斑魚,跟一盤地瓜葉,才熊熊一千五

金山上開二十分鐘就到了朱銘美術館。裡面有台灣藝術家朱銘的收藏品跟雕刻藝術。我最愛的是他室外的空間,讓我在欣賞藝術的同時還能呼吸一點新鮮空氣。

English version(英文版)
Day trip in Northern Taipei, Taiwan

Maybe it was the oh-so-entertaining Television (why do people go to the theatres in Taiwan, anyway?), claustrophobia didn’t hit me until noon, which leaves us only a few hours of sunlight for a daytime road trip. With such limited time, going north seemed to make more sense, so that’s what we did.
Complete random and spontaneous Itinerary (departing from Jingmei, Taipei:

  • 1st Stop: Yannick Pastries:

Dessert makes one go crazy. We went ahead and got a box of 6 cakes, including one chocolate mouse tart, one cheesecake, two yam pastries, and one taro shortcake, we did go crazy. Crazy happy. Loaded with real ingredients, desserts here make you feel like you’re actually consuming some nutrients rather than just trans fat.

  • 2nd stop: Yeliu Geopark
    Yeliu, a cape in Wanli is a tourist attraction near Taipei. Yeliu is famous for its sedimentary rock formations with the most well-known being “The Queen’s Head.”
    My first time visiting The Queens Head was in grade 6, elementary school when the media announced that the neck was breaking and telling the public to sieze their last chance to see the Queen’s Head. But like Venice or many other disappearing must-sees on the internet, it survived until now.
  • 3rd stop: Seafood atYeh-Liu Fishing Harbor
    Most Taiwanese are afraid of the cholesterol associated with seafood. But they eat them anyway, because there’s also a saying that seafood can enhance your libido. Rumor has it that Kung Fu legend Bruce Lee died in bed, with pleasure from some heart or brain problem. So if seafood leads to the same results one way or the other, might as well choose the one with pleasure? Our people have a thing for seafood. I personally believe in the protein over cholesterol, like how I only choose to believe in the good in people. And why I still get scammed after 10-millions of lessons in this culture.
    It is a shame to visit Yeliu without trying the seafood. The harbor is lined with seafood restaurants, and we chose a humble looking one (there weren’t really other choices). A table of shrimp, steamed whole grouper, stir-fried seafood noodle, squid, and yam leaves cost us only $1500 NT.
  • Last stop:.Juming Museum
    20 minutes up the mountains in Jinshan takes us to Juming Museum. Named after Taiwanese artist Ju Ming, the museum houses most of the artist’s own works of big sculptures of taichi, military, and animals. We passed by a DIY area where I’d really hoped to participate. However, my useless hand wouldn’t allow me to. Maybe next time, 20 years later, hopefully, 2.
    What I like about this museum is the outdoor area where I can actually breathe fresh air while appreciating the art.
