The turtle moves forward one step...

Today my housemate and two of her Taiwanese friends and I went to this kinda cafe place. But this is Taiwan so it's not just a cafe...nothing is normal! This cafe has a stack load of board games and cards games for you to play! It's an interesting concept. 

I had the hugest mug of hot chocolate ever there as well! 

So yeah, you just go in and pick which game you wanna play and away you play. You can play as many different games as you want. The interior of the place made me feel like I was in a caravan. So it was kinda nostalgic. At this place, they had pictionary, so I enlightened the girls on that one. (Fortunately the cards had the words written in English and Chinese). We played a whole bunch of games. And well, playing games in Chinese seems to be a good way of learning new vocab! I can now say the purple turtle moves forward one step...紫色乌龟前进一步。I now know the words for cauliflower, cabbage, tomato and pepper! When I am going to get 紫色乌龟前进一步 into a conversation, I don't know. But I like having the option that I am able to do so! Haha!Perhaps I could make it a new idiom. 

It wasn't quite the same as playing Trivial Pursuit in The Beer Engine at Newton St Cyres with a good ale ;) Oh the memories! But it was a pretty interesting way to spend the afternoon. Though I think with random things like this, it's all about the company you are with.

My track of the day is Dizraeli and Tom Caruana - People Taking Pictures. Lyrically it's genius and some of the lyrics really sum up my thoughts on being here. And just an awesome song! Love it!  

it's the funny little curtains that give the caravan vibe i think!
