    After we finally found Wu Pao Chun Bakery, we decided to shop and eat till we drop. We went to Shinkuchan (新堀江) to shop. It’s quite a good place to shop with many MIT (Made in Taiwan) and Korean fashion at affordable prices. After we are done with our shopping, we made a move to Urban Spotlight (城市光廊), Love (爱河) and finally to Liuhe night market (六合夜市) to satisfy our hunger.

    I’m not going to write about Liuhe night market here as I think there are already many guide books and blog entries on it. Instead, I want to talk about the MRT station that one gets off at to go to Liuhe night market – Formosa Boulevard station (美丽岛站).

    The station is a piece of artwork. The entrances/exits are made of glass, kind of reminds me of Lourve. The most special part is its “Dome of Light” inside the station. It is the world’s largest one-piece of stained glass artwork and is designed by Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata.  The artpiece presents 4 themes: water, earth, light and fire, each representing birth, growth, glory, destruction and rebirth respectively.
