wifey and i like going to temples all the time
one of the temples we frequent the most is the chulinshan kuanyin temple in linkou, which is where we went this past saturday...
ice cream vendor selling the famous "papu"
i've been coming to this temple for years now and this construction have been like this all this time. i don't know what's going on there, but i'm assuming it was "legal" when they first started, then through elections local officials have changed since then therefore haulting the construction and deeming it illegal because the new officials did not get the "bonus" that approved the construction in the first place. yup, that's taiwan politics for ya. nice and corrupt. lots of half finished buildings all over taiwan because of the same reason.
after visiting the temple, we went to take a look at the house we almost bought
yes, i almost bought a house in linkou a couple years ago
had my mind set and was ready to sign the contract but a few factors came into play and i decided not to buy it last minute
here's what we would be living in now...
the whole housing project is not complete yet so it doesn't look like much, however these are actually pretty nice homes
6 floors with an personal elevator and private garden
i did and still like these homes a lot
in a way i'm glad i didn't buy it since it in the middle of nowhere in linkou right now
there's nothing around it except for lots of empty lots and some housing contructions
will i regret it 10 ~ 20 years from now tho'?
