Hello everyone!

Do you have a good day? I had just finished my last exam and i really did a good job haha #praisemyself.

After tons of hard work, finally i got time to write here in my blog. So far, life here is challenging but beautiful. Work hard, play hard, and pray hard would be the kind of proverb that describe it all. Yes, I have many to catch on and to fight on, but along the process i am very grateful for my life in Taiwan.

Last weekend i got the chance to go to Hakka Museum in Sanxia, New Taipei City. My boyfriend had a seminar there and he tagged me along because he knows i love museum.

Hakka Museum is just.. SPACIOUS. hahaha. When i first came, i saw many kids just playing around with traditional toys with their parents. The traditional toys are free to use. Just, don`t forget to put it back, okay?

I feel like.. seeing the things that i used to watch in Kungfu Movie in a real life. Those are all the REAL THINGS! and it feels so mysterious and antique.

Here they have secret drawers for you to open and see what is inside.

What is inside? They have all kinds of end product for Camphor. I really like this since it gives people something to do inside the museum.

I love their bathroom. Even the bathroom is designed with Hakka style, giving you that vintage feeling when you come inside. The bathroom lady was so nice too. I forgot my water bottle inside and she just delivered it back to me. Xie xieee…

I really enjoyed my time in New Taipei City Hakka Museum. I love how it feels so grande and chic, but they stay in touch with the people around the area. People in the neighborhood are free to come here for playing and enjoying Hakka Culture. I also love how they use Barbie and free toys to engage kids.

Do you want to come here?
