Most little places you go to eat they have a kind of notepad of the menu and you have to tally beside what you want and then give it to the staff. I fear that made no sense, so see the picture below. I think it's a pretty sweet idea! I'm just very grateful I've always been out with people that can read most of the characters! So they can tell me what is actually on the menu. I'm sorta tempted to one day just go out on my own and randomly pick something and see what I get given ha! But hey, I can order my coffee now (or at least muddle my way through) so that's a start. I'll get round to learning the menu's at some point!
And on the coffee front, my housemate turfed out a cafetiere that she had hidden in a cupboard. This makes for a very happy Abi. Coffee is pretty hard to find round these parts, but you can get coffee beans, so just gotta whazz 'em up and I am good to go! It's not quite the same as coffee back home. It's no Taylor's After Dark blend, but when you've gone a month with only two cups of coffee...it goes down pretty well!
I've become accustomed to doing pre study and 功課 (homework) on my balcony. Yes that's right I have a balcony! Mental! The Taiwanese hate to tan (or 'get lines' as they like to say.) But no I'm staying a typical Brit, sun's out, I'm out. Still in the mentality of got to make the most of the sun whilst it lasts! Haha!
Song of the day, Rae Morris - Back to Front. (she's playing at Exeter Cavern on Saturday 29th, you should go in my behalf and why not have a drinkle in my behalf too hehe!)
