    2. 2. Doro Succulents-Therapeutic Desk Friends (Doro多肉植物.療癒小物)

    Located inside the Tainan Confucius Temple Commercial District

    Located in the Tainan Confucius Temple Commercial District

    中西區府中街, Doro Succulents is a cute little shop filled with small succulents that are absolutely adorable and therapeutic. Turning from Kaishan road  onto Fujhong Street, there is already lots of local traditional specialties to see and try within a short 500-metre distance, including Taiwanese handicrafts, malt candy sticks, and $2nt Oden skewers (What!?)

    Doro is a perfect and convenient place to pick up souvenirs and gifts for anybody on your list before/after visiting the tourist attraction.

    These little desk friends aren’t just plants. They are affordable gifts that can show your sincerity or help you to at least pretend to be thoughtful. Because they are (semi) custom made. Shoppers can pick a plant along with mini figurines, including characters from the much-celebrated animation Totoro by acclaimed Japanese animator/artist Hayao Miyazaki.

    Totoro is my generation. One of the later known works of Miyazaki that might ring a bell is Spirited Away, and yes! You can find “No-Face (Kaonashi, the faceless ghost)” to accompany you at your boring desk, too. Hey, if your job isn’t paying you enough, maybe Kaonashi will like he does in the film.  Why not keep him around as motivation?

    The shop assistant (sorry, still didn’t get her name) pays as much attention to details as the products they sell. She carefully explains the products that are safe to carry abroad and on a flight and those that are not, in English, too!

    中文譯/Chinese Version:

    多肉療癒系植物盆栽

    位於孔廟商圈「多肉」,是一家小巧可愛的商店,專賣多肉性植物,店員(不好意思!還是不知道她的芳名 )如同這些小可愛一樣細緻,不厭其煩地為我介紹可上機和不可上機的商品 (而且是用英文喔!)。

    這些小植物極度可愛,具有療癒心靈的功效,非常適合當伴手禮,送給好友。若你是遠來的遊客,在疲憊的觀光行程後,買多肉當作紀念品是再適合不過了。

    這從開山路轉往府中街的短短一條五百公尺的街道,兩旁都是充滿台灣民俗風味的小店,包括台南小吃店、本土手工藝店、古早味麥芽糖……還有你想像不到的兩元(台幣)黑輪。別急!門口排著長龍呢!看來我還是等下次再來光顧。

    這些桌上的小朋友採半客製化,它們不只是植物,也是可愛的禮物,足以表達你的心意(或假裝你有心)。購買者可以把挑選的植物和小公仔結合,包含大家永遠熟悉熱愛的動畫家宮崎駿豆豆龍(嘿嘿…不好意思,不小心透露了我的年紀)。你若不是我世代的青少年,不妨選擇宮崎駿較新的作品神隱少女。當然你也可以找到“無臉鬼”來陪伴,你無聊的工作桌一定能活絡起來。或許無臉鬼會像電影中一樣讓貧窮的你瞬間富裕,重點是你的日子鐵定會不一樣…。
