Taipei Time

Taipei Public Library in a subway is open from 6:00 ~ 24:00

I concur that it is clearer to use 24:00 than 0:00 when representing continuous time. Also in Japan for example, a store or a public elevator will write its open hours in a continuous manner. So if store hours is at 12 noon to 2 AM, the sign will read as 12:00 ~ 26:00.

Taiwan Sausage

image

The pale looking ones are actually sticky rice inside a sausage casing. The rice sausage is being grilled, then it would be sliced lengthwise partially so the pork sausage can be wedged on it.

The pork sausage in Taipei (and around) is a savory and tempting snack whether skewered or placed inside a sticky rice sausage (that serves as bun). Quite an extraordinary sustenance because it is deliciously fatty.

Nearly each time I could smell it, I buy. For at least five times as I can remember that I ate grilled pork sausage, I could say that I had a gratifying street food snacking experience in Taiwan. So I thought of collecting few pictures about this subject.

Why does pork sausage taste even better at night?

White Ampalaya Juice Stand

One of the many ampalaya juice stands in Taiwan

Only in Taiwan where I have seen the ampalaya being sold widely as beverage. The physical appearance of white ampalaya in its relatively considerable size is such a curiosity. With honey or sugar added, the ampalaya juice is refreshingly good because of its clean taste and with no overpowering bitterness.
