Biggest Accomplishment in 2021

Bought a car for my dad! He has been riding a motorcycle to work for years and I always find it dangerous especially during wet weather. He often has to go under heavy rain with just a raincoat too. 

It's a second hand entry level car but good enough for his commute to work everyday.

Turning 31

Oh my, I just realized that I haven't posted anything for half a year. And I thought it was only 1-2 months. 

Lets post photos from my 31st birthday, before I turn 32 with a blink of an eye.

Hokkaido, Japan

Shortly after blogging about my trip to Taiwan in 2018, I realize that I have yet to blog about my trip to Hokkaido in December 2017! I really should blog about my trips immediately after instead of procrastinating. 

We arrived in Hokkaido at 3pm and the sky was already dim. At 5pm, it became totally dark. So for this trip, we were out and about by 630am on most days and back in hotel by evening.

Taiwan - Kaohsiung

I didn't visit Kaohsiung during my first trip to Taiwan so I was kinda excited for it during this trip. 

Our itinerary was Taipei - Kaohsiung - Taipei and I blogged about the Taipei part here: http://www.estherxie.com/2021/04/taiwan-2018-taipei.html

On the way to Kaohsiung, we passed by Chiayi and visited some of the tourist stops too. 

First, the High Heel Wedding Church, which has lots of cute backdrops for us to take photos.

Taiwan 2018 - Taipei

Wow how time flies! It has been more than a year since I last travelled due to the pandemic but I guess it's a chance to catch up on my travel back log! 

I went to Taiwan in December 2018 and visited Taipei and Kaohsiung. I'd focus more on Taipei in this entry!

Netflix

Netflix subscription is one of the best things that happened to me in recent years. Haha. I cannot imagine a life without Netflix anymore. 

Just wanted to make a list of my all-time-favourite shows on Netflix, the ones that I really enjoyed and would recommend to anyone.

- Izombie (Not sure why but somehow I'm hooked episode after episode.)

- Snowpiercer (Love the concept.)

- Into the Night (Very few episodes, can binge watch at one go like a movie)

- Crash Landing on You (not a fan of K-drama but this was good)
