This is a soft drink that I often see in North Taiwan. Its look and taste appeals the young though it’s hard to open it without adult assistance. The pink contraption on the lid is what you’ll use to open the bottle by pushing down an embedded marble to make a hole. So it’s like this, while guzzling , you’re fully aware that there’s a marble moving around the liquid inside.

Writing wishes on their lantern
There is one district in the outskirts of Taipei named Pingxi where tourists flock mainly to see and experience the flying lanterns on a railroad track.
Readying the hot air lantern by putting fire on bunch of papers inside
To do the lantern experience, I’ve observed that first, you choose and buy a lantern from one of the many vendors in there, then write anything that you (and your companions if lantern sharing) hope or wish for, afterwards stand on the railroad tracks (when there’s no passing train of course), it is there that fire will be lit on a bunch of papers inside to generate hot air. Just before releasing, smile at the camera (100% of those I’ve observed have their photographs taken, and they were all smiling, the lantern must be expensive, I suppose), lastly let go of thy wishes into the air. Goodbye. I wonder where all those lanterns end up.
