Day 1 Taipei Trip - Shihlin Hawker Food and Grandee Taipei Hotel

Angeline Monday, April 19, 2010 , ,
We took a cab back to the hotel, by the time we reach the hotel should be around 3pm, our room will be ready then. Building (above) we passed by as we were heading to Shihlin district is the Grand Hotel, one of the signature building, look's like temple. The taxi fare was around NT$245 cause we got on a wrong cab, the driver was on the phone whole time, I guess he had some financial problem, his conversation was about property. Then he drove us to Grandee Garden which is very far away from our hotel and he rudely show us that's the place we wanted to go, we were like hah! We want to go back to the hotel not to the garden, we refused to get down, then we show him the address again, "it's Grandee Taipei Hotel", he said we didn't tell him clearly, we just smile. We reach our hotel at last but he just drop us across the road, that's a very rude taxi driver, he should just stop somewhere and settle his problem on the phone, don't pick up any customer.
Across from Grandee Hotel is Shilin Night Market, some of the hawker stalls already open at around 3pm, targeting students crowd, most of the student will stop by and hang around here after school.
Sang Jien Bao Stall already open
Haha, although we're all so full, Shirley still want to tapau (take-away) one piece of Sang Jien Bao (NT$10) back to the hotel.
 Our hotel, Grandee Hotel,Taipei

Today's Meditation
Whether or not we realize it each of us has within the ability to
set some kind of example for people. Knowing this, would you
rather be the one known for being the one who encouraged others,
or the one who inadvertently discouraged those around you?

Are you a role model? Yes, you are. We all are, actually. The major difference between the so called "good" role models, though, and the "bad" ones is that the good ones have made a conscious decision to be role models. They have decided that they are going to live in such a way as to be examples of love and kindness and helpfulness, as well as strong morals and ethics. They know that others see them all the time, and they've decided just what they want others to see.

And they haven't decided to model these qualities for their own gain. Instead, they know that if they can show others the positive effects of leading positive lives, then others can decide to emulate them and make their own lives much more positive and fulfilling.

If someone and especially a young person who is still learning many of the basic aspects of life-sees me constantly complaining and being negative, he or she gets the idea that life is something to complain about, and that person very often will look for things that reinforce this idea. This person very likely could become someone who complains and focuses on the negative side of life. Likewise if I constantly criticize others, or if I say that life is unfair, or if I gossip or break the law or hurt others, I'm setting an example. And all of these things can be very discouraging for the people who are watching me because I'm a part of their lives.

I would much rather know that I've tried to model the positive, that I've been loving and encouraging, and that others think positively when they see my model. If I am to be that way, I have to make a conscious decision to be so, and I have to stick to it. Otherwise, who knows what I teach others?
