A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month! December has hit us, so I hope you’re ready for the onslaught of Christmas decorations (which already started appearing prematurely last month) and cries of “where did the year go- it felt like July just the other day?!”
If you’re wondering what’s happening in Taipei this December, check out the article I wrote for Travelog (please click the title or the picture directly below)
It’s a round up of some of the amazing art, music, culture, festive fun and nightlife events on in Taipei in December.
The article features a mish-mash of events so hopefully there’s at least one event which might strike your interest! Obviously I was limited in how many events I could write about so had to select ones with the broadest appeal (hey, I might not like them but Super Junior are undeniably huge).
It wouldn’t be right of me to write about all these events and not attend them myself, so I’m planning to attend most of them:
- Video Art Exhibition: I’m hoping to catch it this weekend as it sounds incredible, so I’ll report back about it here! It’s only on until the 6th so make sure to get in quick!
- Giant Christmas Tree: I already have plans to see this monster of tree in Banqiao sometime this month. I was immediately sold by line “World’s only 360 degree 3-D Label Flash Christmas Tree”-I can’t wait to discover what exactly that means:)
- Fried Ice: This event will undoubtedly go off- the organisers are known for their fantastic parties (Havana anyone?), and they’ve been doing this particular event since 2012. Sadly, I can’t go myself as have a friend’s birthday. This is especially disappointing because pretty much the one slightly impressive sporting thing I can do is skate backwards.
- Hot Spring Festival: I have a deep dark secret I must confess- I still haven’t been to Beitou Hot springs (I know…I know), so with the weather becoming more chilly I will take the excuse to head to the festival and get my tourist on with a Happy Passport in hand.
December is going to be great guys! I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my bones (shout out to all the other Love Actually tragics out there!). Sure, it’s always a bit stressful because with the end of the year wrapping up there is so much to do in a seemingly shorter amount of time.
But finally, the time has come when I can legitimately sing All I want for Christmas is you, and only be judged on my song choice, and not also the awful timing of singing it all year long.
That’s a pretty good trade off I think. Cover your ears people!
