Chuan Tung Cake & Bread
Opposite of Carrefour (Tien Mou Store),
111 台北市士林區德行西路47號
We left Angeline to rest in her room and went out for last minutes shopping. Gone into a taxi and asked the driver to send us to the nearest hypermarket. At the junction where the taxi driver dropped us, there is a bakery shop. Unexpectedly, the bakery shop is famous with their handmade Mochi.

Immediately, we went into the shop to check it out.
Assorted of breads were sell in the bakery
Paul bought the Mochi. I tried the Strawberry Mochi. It was really really good. I wouldn't know how to describe it. The skin was smooth, soft and QQ. It tasted like it will melt in your mouth. When you bite through it, the fragrant from the strawberry and cream came out. Then, you can feel the creamy taste from the smooth cream and the sweet and sourish taste from the fresh strawberry. Irresistible...
They also bought the Longan and Walnut Cupcake to bring back to KK. Longan is one of the signature product in Taiwan. The cupcake was rich in longan and walnut flavour but a little bit too sweet to my liking.
The Chocolate Bun was soft and with a little bit sweetness from the chocolate. I like it.
Paul love Baos. He bought the Red Bean Bao to bring back to KK. It looks really good and tempting.
The Whole Wheat Steamed Bun was bought from Carrefour. The bun at Taiwan tasted very good. Most of the bun you can find in Taiwan, are soft and fluffy with no doughy taste. Paul and Shirley bought this to bring back to KK too.

Today's Meditation: 
Sometimes during the day, I consciously focus on some ordinary object and allow myself a momentary "paying-attention." This paying-attention gives meaning to my life. I don't know who
it was, but someone said that careful attention paid to anything is a window into the universe. Pausing to think this way, even for a brief moment, is very important. It gives quality to my day.
Robert Fulghum

What gives quality to my day? There are many things that do so: When someone smiles at me, for one. Many more people smile at me when I smile at them than otherwise. Noticing a perfect drop of dew on a leaf or a blade of grass. I see many more of those when I look for them. Birds singing in the trees, filling the air with their beautiful songs. I hear them well when I stop and listen to them. A compliment on something that I've done well. I get more compliments when I put a lot of work into something than when I do things quickly. A heartfelt "thank you" adds quality to my day, too. I get many more thank you's when I've done something for which someone thanks me than I do when I haven't done anything for anyone.

I see and feel and receive the things that give quality to my life when I actively try to see and feel and hear those things, and when I actively try to put quality into the world. Paying careful attention is work, but it's not particularly hard work once you get used to it. And much of the work consists in learning how to ignore all those other things that are competing for our attention, all those other things that don't give quality to our days. The noise of cars and planes, the ads on radio and television, the negativity of political campaigns and the news--all of these things may have some importance to us, but if we pay too much attention to them, then where's the room or time for paying attention to the other things that add quality?

I shall open my eyes and ears. Once every day I shall simply stare at a tree, a flower, a cloud, or a person. I shall not then be concerned at all to ask what they are but simply be glad that they are. I shall joyfully allow them their "divine, magical, and ecstatic" existence.
