Hey, I know that guy.....

Pretty decent weather today in Taipei, cool with just a little bit of rain. This morning I picked up my health cert from the hospital (costs only $35 US for tests, which include blood pressure, eye exam, hearing test, chest x-ray, blood test, and short visit with the doctor - try getting that in the States for so cheap!), got my passport photos from the photo shop, and applied for the university classes which will allow me to get a residency visa.

Since the weather was so nice, I decided to walk a little, took the MRT to Shandao Temple Station and from there walked to a little daily jade market just to look around. On the way back, I stopped at Yong He Dou Jiang to pick up some xiao long tang bao to bring home for lunch/dinner. Yummy stuff.

Headed into Shandao Temple Station and was walking down the stairs to the platform when I espied a fellow heading up the escalator, talking on his cell phone. Ballcap, ponytail, glasses, tiny goatee - hey, I know him! I waited until he was almost directly across from me, just inches away, then spoke. "Xiao Zhu!" He looked at me as he rode upwards, me with a big silly grin on my face, recognized me and smiled back. "Oh! Hi...!" If he hadn't been on the phone, maybe I'd have talked to him a bit. Who was he? Oh, just the bass player from China Blue.... Around here, even the famous guys take the MRT because it's so convenient :)
