Planning for the trip/02 ~帰りたい気分

I totally agree with food writer Yilan said about Tainan.
The city where i grew up before my family moved to Taipei.
The city where you will find most of the eateries are open in the early morning. People there are starting their day with a nice meal.
The city where you find lots lots historical buildings and temples.

Our family used to live in a "long " house. The porpotion of lot's width and length probably are 1 to 8. It's so long so we have a long light well in the middle, a small light well at the side and a large back yard. My lovely grandpa was living in the northernly end of the house. It was a room with japanese setting, lift solid wood floor with layers and layers of wood panel doors, and of course tatami flooring in the bedroom. My grandma was living in the southernly end of the house right beside the garden. It's a room with western setting. But we have totally chinse style kitchen and living room. This house is toally reflecting the mutiple cultures of this city. There are thousands things I want to say about this house, but i have to stop here.

Did i tell you this city is famous with GOOD FOOD??
I will plan to have this LAMB SOUP!
And I will not miss fried noodles with fresh water eel, oyster pancake, stir fried squid, milky fish porridge,starfruit juice, vegetarian bamboo leaf wrapped rice cake, tea dessert ...........

(鱔魚意麵, 蚵阿煎, 生炒花枝, 虱目魚粥, 楊桃湯, 魚丸湯,..............)I will have hard time to finish my listing,..... they are too many good things there!
