Summer Holidays

I’m back at the Chinese Cultural University Mandarin Language Centre where I first took Chinese classes early last year. This time I’ve decided to challenge myself and jump a few levels ahead as I found it pretty easy going last time. The classes are two hours each morning, Monday to Friday. This gives me the afternoon and night to do other things, namely the need to read some Finance research papers to prepare for my thesis. I would also like to visit some other places in Taiwan, especially the beaches and the southern cities which I hear are worthy places to see. So that’s my plan for the holidays.

The Taipei Arena was opened in 2005 and it has become a buzz of activity.

Since it’s the summer holidays here, the ice skating rink is offering student discounts. Being poor students, we had to make the most of this opportunity.

Kinda looks like the convention centre thing in Hong Kong
