This is the last morning I could meet with Medha, Huikey and Thao. They came all long journeys from GuanXi to the city for my farewell party. T.T
I didn’t get to wake up at 5:30am to leave the house with them as I promised last night, but I managed to catch Hunsa who will be back to Thailand in the next day!! We were both so happy to meet each other since the day before she couldn’t attend the farewell dinner.
This is also the morning I wrote sugar cubes to the people I have met in CTLC, the AIESECers. I couldn’t tell how much I love them. I didn’t know will I miss them either. At the moment, I feel that I am lucky enough to have them as my host in Taiwan. The day was so hot and my heart was warm when I thought of them and what to write to them in the sugar cubes.
After finished writing the sugar cubes, I passed them to Hunsa. She sent me to the bus stop.
She is the first and the last trainee I met in Taiwan! See how the fate bonds us together. ;)
This reminds me what Ming Foong said, I am the one who spent the first night and the last night with her in Taiwan. From here, we shall know how the mysterious power works among us. =)
She is the type of girl that if you know her longer, you wouldn’t be able to leave her.
She is the kind of girl if she doesn’t with you, you will miss her.
Yes, I met this kind of girl. That’s why I say I am lucky.
In the airport, I met Howard and Tomo. Both Madelyn and I spend our last 2 hours with them in the airport.
In the plane, I met a girl from Malaysia and we chatted for the second half of the jouney.
In the airport, I met a guy from Germany who studies in University of Cambridge came Malaysia for a study trip together with his tourmates. He looks similar with my friend, Dan whom I met in Taiwan.
The morning I was to wake up the girls on the bed, only I realize there are only four of us. I miss the rest of them! I couldn’t get used to the emptiness and tidiness in the room.
A trip to Leofoo Village. It is an amusement park, just like Genting Highlands Theme Park in Malaysia.
It was nearly cancelled due to the unpredictable weather.
We went there by bus and started our swinging journey.
We took Pirate Ship, which is my favourite ride, the 360° turning ride (which I don’t know what does it call), etc. Forgive me, I don’t know what their names. =D
Of course, we took a lot photos! Stay tuned for the photos on facebook.
In the evening by 6pm, we took bus back to Hsinchu, the trainee house.
Mike visited us and planned for the Taichung trip tomorrow with Madelyn and Eric. I was too tired and couldn’t join the discussion.
This is the day for the second Global Village during my internship.
This time, we hold it in Dong An Elementary School, the school where Huikey and Medha have their internship.
Or in other words, the school is just 15 minutes walking journey from my previous living plave, the convent. =)
I was quite excited for the Global Village event as I could meet up with the lovely AIESECers again and spend my day with them.
I meet Director Chung and Jinfang for the last time today, even though it was a rainy day…
Luckily I managed to pass all the sugar cubes for the teachers in the school to Jinfang. Thanks Jinfang for distributing them. Even though she wouldn’t online and read it here, I am still grateful that she managed to meet me up.
The Global Village is much more organized compared to the first time. The schedule is much more on time. =)
Moreover, we just have to present for 4 times instead of 6 times of our materials. We taught them the famous Malay song - Rasa Sayang and share some cultures and food.
I was too excited to see some of the children from my school joined this event.
They were so serious to listen to me and could answer the questions asked. I love them.
It’s tonight; we went to the Qinghua Night Market with Joyce and Mindi. We managed to try the famous soybean drink, Yong He Soy Bean 永和豆漿. After that, we walked back to the trainee house and had fun playing UNO and Mafia War with Chen-Chi, the only AIESECer that could show up tonight.
I get better today and this is the time I shall depart to Taipei to meet Coco, a friend that had matched to LCUSM before. It’s such a miracle that I could meet her again in Taiwan. Today is the day she finishes her final exam. We met at Starbucks in the station; she came with another friend too. =)
We went to the post office. I had my sushi set there. =D
We went to her house. We walked along the road side in Taipei. Sounds romantic, isn’t it?
I spent my evening with Coco and her family. We had our oyster meal that day. Everything with oyster!!
I wonder how they could so friendly to me. They even send me to the trainee house in Hsinchu. The journey took us almost one hour from Taipei. I was so touched by their friendliness. I met Coco’s sister, Yoyo too. I was asked to speak English to her and pretend that I didn’t know Mandarin. Her sister has good command of English too. She was too surprised when I revealed the truth. On the way, Joyce called but I couldn’t answer her in Mandarin. That’s pretty weird, haha…
Joyce was so blurr that why I was speaking English to her. Sorry, Joyce! =D
A rainy night ended up spending with all the trainees in the house. =)
Even though the moment I reached the house, they had been almost finish discussing the details of the Global Village, I am glad that I could meet and spend my rest of the night with some of the CTLC AIESECers and my beloved trainees.
Today is also the day I spent the whole day to sleep and trying so much to get recovered from the illness. I woke up for three times, each time 2 hours and spent my time chatting with friends. =) One of them is the lovely trainee we met here but she’s already in Malaysia, Kar May.
Claire, my cousin’s girl friend brought me to JhungLi Night Market by her scooter. It was so much food to eat there. However, it’s too bad I couldn’t bear with my cold and had no appetite to try the food. By the way, we played a game and tried the famous rice noodles with some side dishes. She is really nice to talk to, probably we have no gaps since she’s only one year older than me? =D I had diarrhea for 2 times after we came back from the night market! It is the first time I had diarrhea when I was on the road and I had to look for a toilet in the shops!! What a life changing experience we so called! XD Luckily the toilets here in the city are well equipped and you wouldn’t find anything that you need absent here.
