中秋節快樂!

Happy Moon/Mid Autumn Festival

Today, we went with a couple of friends from work up in the mountains to a place called Wulai 烏來. We went up there to sit in the hot springs. I couldn't get any pictures of them because it was too dark.

Another Week

Well another week has gone by, but there's not much to write about. I started teaching two new classes this week but ended up losing one of my classes. One class is a very young class where we are teaching them sentences like "What is it?" "It is a sock." My other class is with older kids and I'm teaching them how to write essays. I'm not that great at writing essays, so it's gonna be a good learning experience.

A new grocery store called Welcome opened this week behind our apartment building. The one before it closed about 3 months ago, so it will be nice having a store again. We have never been so excited for a grocery store.

Tonight, we went out to eat again at a Korean restaurant. it was really good, one of the best meals we have had this week.

Weekend

We didn't do anything cool or exciting this past week. We have just been working everyday and thats about it.

This weekend we went out with people to a restaurant called Tasty's. It was a 6 course meal, so there was quite a bit of food. Here are some of the dishes. I forgot to take a picture of my steak.

Shrimp and asparagus
Dessert
This tasted like a sloppy joe
This is one of the ladies that we went to dinner with.
It was her birthday this month so they put a hat on her and sang.
Tonight, we treated ourselves to some Pizza Hut.
One of the places I go to skate. It's under a bridge by our apartment.

Another Week

Another week has gone by. We have just been working and keeping busy. The weather is supposed to start cooling down, but it is still super hot. This weekend we were able to go to dinner with great people. Saturday night we had hotpot and today we went to TGI Fridays.
