Always on the go

semi-overcast 28 °C

We moved to stay at my aunty’s place last night and it was cool to let Phil experience the local housing in Taiwan - quite different to NZ in certain areas 😆 In the morning we walked to get our breakfast (yes we eat out for breakfast too!) then mum took us to the district council to sort my local licence. I finally got to learn what medical was required to gain a driving licence in Taiwan. So in NZ, the visual part was only just vision (visual acuity) and peripheral vision; in Taiwan however they tested more: colour vision, night vision then on top of that mobility and hearing! They even got a record of my height and weight...I wonder why they needed those particular measurements 🤔

I’m now officially a legal driver on the road! Although I have never driven a left hand drive car and would be a bit hesitant to be on the road actually. After that we arrived back at the dentist for Phil’s turn on the chair. It turn out to be a good experience for him surprisingly because there was no pain even thought he needed a filling and a clean. The dentist even said he was lucky to be “handsome with good teeth”! LOL 😂🤣

We then moved on to sort mum’s glasses as her existing pair was getting tired. It was interesting to see how Taiwanese optometrists work and to be honest it was similar to what we do in NZ. I took heaps of photos like a tourist because I fuond it so fascinating... hehe...

Lunch was a very yummy Japanese restaurant and after that we had a quick walk around and got a few tech stuff. Mum booked me a Chinese massage in the afternoon and it was good. 2 hours for NT$1400 (equivalent to NZD$70), very good deal!

Mum and dad took us to the Art Museum for a walk for pre-dinner exercise then we had several Taiwanese local street food as dinner. I think Phil enjoyed it, i could say I certainly did anyway. I miss the food in Taiwan 😍
