It was very cold for the last 3 days of this trip, around 12C at the lowest and 21C at the warmest.

I guess the nearest place to compare it to is HKG.

[Trivia: Taiwan is the home to Din Tai Fung famous for their Xiao Long Bao]

I must say Taiwan did not disappoint the foodie in me. I think they have more variety of street foods vs HKG. I still adore cantonese cuisine but in the street foods category Taiwan wins by a mile.

They also have cheaper mobile data TW Mobile gives you unlimited data for 100NTD per day…

I really wasn’t able to go around and check out electronics or gadgets but they definitely have cheaper devices vs the PH.IMG_0469

As a side note. I saw a lot more cute women in Taipei vs 2 visits to HKG… just saying :P

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
