A Trip to the Shilin Night Market

Ian and I went to the Shilin Night Market tonight!

Here's Ian next to some 沙威瑪 (shawarma).

Little "claw machines" abound.

Now, this is the most interesting thing I saw today. It says "let's play naked twisten"


  1. Are you saying that is not chicken in the first picture? I have gotten that at night markets before and liked it but you gave it another name and make me scared I've eaten a rat or something.

    Would you please add my blog to your Taiwan mission list? I'm a IRL friend of "following an unknown path" blogger. We live in southern Taiwan.

    I like your blog (but my eyes can't handle the red text on black background) ;)

  2. Hi Sandy!

    Thanks for the comment. It's nice to know someone out there is reading my blog! I added you to my list of Taiwan blogs as well. I've been kind of lazy about about adding more to the list, but once I add more I'll make a separate list for missionary blogs and non-missionary. Now they're just all lumped together! Anyway, in answer to your question, that was chicken (not rat or anything). I wrote "sha1 wei1 ma3" as in meat that's on a spit like what's shown in the picture. Thanks for the tip on the colors, I'm new to the whole blogging thing so any advice is appreciated. I made the red links brighter, so maybe now they're easier to read, or they might be worse because they're too bright. Oh well, I just can't let go of the black background because I love the whole "cool, punky" look to it. Once again, thank you for commenting, and if you could add a link to my blog on your site I would appreciate it. I love your blog. Keep up the good work!

  3. Thanks for brightening the red so we can see it better. The black background is cool. I like dark blue so I leave mine that way.

    I added your blog to my list just now. I don't have hundreds of visitors each day, but I'm trying to join more blogrings, etc. so I can get more.

    We seem to have a lot in common (same Chinese family name, both married, both Americans, and best - both Christians). If you ever want to come "south", let us know. We go to Taipei only a few times a year. (and we were just there last week)
