May trip to Taipei

It seems like an established thing in my life that I go to Taipei once a month. Anyway, I said at a place called Rose Boutique Hotel near Taipei Station. I met up with my friend Jaydenn for dinner. I met Jaydenn when I was in University and if it was not for her I probably would not have thought about going to Taiwan. You can see Jaydenn’s blog here (it is in Chinese but the pictures are cool).
