Beimen salt farms 北門鹽田

Some composition practice at Beimen, Tainan, Taiwan. These are salt farms that were abandoned by the industry in 2002, and then revived for tourism two years later. I jumped into it and raked, piled and carried salt. A fun activity for kids and grownups alike.

Sorry for the absence. Been manning the night shift, filming and writing (for work) almost nonstop in the past few weeks. I really need a holiday, but no time for that right now either! However I am managing to slip in a few minutes here and there to peek at my Google+. Search me out! Michella Jade Weng is the name.

Mentaiko in Taipei 博多もつ鍋やまや

Found a mentaiko place in Taipei! Will be going back to this restaurant again when I that occasional craving for super salty fish roe. Undecided on the other food (including the beef offal hotpot) they serve here, but the mentaiko was not bad at all!

Here's Kevin who happily skipped class so I wouldn't have to eat alone. He had the 明太子茶漬け, which was delicious!

New glasses!

Works well with a big smile! What do you think? Fashionably nerdy?

Thanks, Dad!

I made Oreo model for me (before I got prescription lenses installed, no cookie or animal was harmed in the process of this photo session, maybe just 裝瘋ed).
