hey , did you pack the Scottish mist or Simon storm  with you this time?   i asked him when he was trying to wake up.

oh! the weather was gray and heavy now...grrrrrrrrrr .... and we were going to Alishan.... well,  i zip my mouth and pass him the breakfast , tell him ,take you time , no rush today ....

On the way to Alishan ,Simon still very tired  because of the jet lag and car sickness. i try to drive more calmer and slowly , i know he is not good to be a passenger. We stop in the rest area  ,grab some coffee and snacks.... then heading again. we have no idea about that there is a surprise watting  us in front.

... what a lucky  us ...

It was a misty afternoon when we arrived the Choku.... we decided stop here for a while .

wow... look at that, it is sooooo beautiful , yeap , something caught the  bear's eyes....the temples.... sure , photgraph time!!!! 

hey , the monks with the sunglasses... wow... fat leopard cat .. what is it? what is that building for ? wow... what a bizzare ..i explained the buildinds and the culture to Simon.. he was walking ,skipping  and  taking more photograph like a kid...

bibibibi...the panda's food GPS was calling ...hey i smelled  bbq sausage.. nmm with garlic....  as i always can find the food....i asked Simon stop a bit and i run to the lovely sausage shop....  in the beginning,Simon can not trust that the food is safe to him.

cool and wet.. scottish mist
...  well,  i know what he was considering ...i used to travel in some weird and remote countries , i  told him... hey , i will not let you in the danger  okey ? try it , if you  do not like it ..  i will eat all of them ..... just one bite....  hehehehe.... after the tiny bite.... the bear's eyes were  shine... he likes it...then he finished 2 sausages  at that day (inclund mine ).... 

Thought Simon 's funny cartoon face interested the sausage guy .....we started chatting  , he invited us to sit down and served some  black bean snacks, bbq wild pork and of course.. TEA... it was a very great  afternoon...  Taiwanes' friendly impressed Simon lottttt.....

Say goodbye to the nice sausage couple, we haeding back to the parking lot,suddenly, there was a loud noise came to us , fireworks and drums.

.. OMG!!! are we that luck??  an idea came across my mind.... i went to the plaza outside of the main temple......  bingo !!! some kind of  the ceremony was holding..... i asked a beliver.... oh ya!!!   thhere is a GOD who living in Taipei , and he was comeing to visit and say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the GOD living here in Choku... which means... if we stay longer , we can see many many shows......of course, we STAY HERE!!!!

i am glad that Simon was enjoying the shows.... i can tell form that he can not stop pushing the camera shutter ... we stopped there for an another hour, time to head to Alishan.. the sky is getting dark and more foggy...

it was not a very easy driving , because of the bad road condition and mist ...Simon was into the sleep again.... thought he is better now, he is getting white form BLUE......  

when we arrived Alishan tourist center... the tem.was  dropping  to 8 C , after chick in , it is still early ,only 1830,but very wet,  we need food ....the low temp. makes us very hungry ..... after dinner, we try to walk a bit,  then back to our POLICE GUEST HOUSE  .....

good night and i hope the weather will better tomorrow....
