Rice Burger and More

Our fourth day in Tawain was hosted by Tavo! The Science Museum was our first stop.

Most of our time was spent 'exploring science' in the kids play area!

So fun!


Someone got really into building. Can't say who.

This was taken right before it collapsed on my daughter.

A lesson about how gravity works, can we say? (No injuries, duh.)

This was my masterpiece. Very mod.

Um, guess it won't be installed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art after all.


Happy girl.

And more building. I think this huge pile of large Legos was a dream come true for someone. Can't say who, but I will say that his name does not start with H.

he he

This was the next play area beside us.

All I can say is YIKES!


This is a very scientific game, I'll have you know.

I can't say who won cause I can't remember. If my husband were beside me, I could ask him and he could certainly tell you who won and give you the highlights of the game.

He's cool like that.

Here is a demonstration of the difference in size between an American stroller and an Asian stroller.

Not all Asian strollers are this small, but isn't it incredible?

You know how people always say that Americans do things BIG?

Well, it's true, on many levels.

And here is my girlie throwing a fit under the counter.

Wouldn't be accurate if I didn't post a picture of her throwing a fit.

Bless her heart.

We also walked through this fascinating exhibit called "Body Works" that was all about the human body and how everything works.

It was incredible. And it made me realize, once again, how creative and amazing our Creator is!

Hungry? It's Japanese Mos Burger for lunch!

This is the ATM machine inside that H excitedly pulled up a chair to 'cause he thought it was a video game. Ha!

Here is regular burger. Yum.

And here is the famous rice burger. Patty made of rice and filled with meat. Also yum!

H also loved the purple jello in a cup. We didn't tell him that it was flavored with something super healthy. Can't remember now what.

And sweet N was happy to try it all, even this little sweet roll with purple vegetable in the middle.

Next stop... The National Museum. Gorgeous, eh?

And we only had to carry the stroller up a million stairs to get there!

Sorry, no more pics of the museum. Just following the rules. It was fascinating though... brought SOOOO much life to all those Chinese Dynasties I learned about in school growing up.

Very cool.

Dinner was at a diner looking place that served a mixture of foods. But H's food was served in this! So fun.

He even ate broccoli cause it was in a space shuttle. Nice!

Late night outing...

Shilin night market!

Think street fair, flea market, county fair, etc!

There was, as usual, a large focus on food at the night market. First thing we tried were these chestnuts.

Then shaved ice.

We were told it was all the rage.

There were only a few choices...

It's literally a big chunk of (sometimes flavored) ice shaved off with this machine.

Why didn't I think of that?

This is shaved milk ice with maple and tapioca balls.

Regular ice with sweet potato and taro.

And more milk ice with strawberry topping.

Papaya milk was ordered specifically for this cute girlie who drank almost the whole cup.

Then we thought her tummy might explode.

But it didn't, thank goodness.

Once again, absolutely delicious stuff!

We did some looking around and then played a couple games.

H got scared doing this game. Too loud for him.

It was shoot the balloons.

And there a was a marble game too.

Such a fun, action filled day.

Such wonderful companions.

We tucked in these kiddos after midnight I think. They are troopers, and pretty happy about it too.
