Day 042 : Cultural Taipei

From appreciating the natural outskirt of Taipei yesterday, we stepped back in time today to catch a glimpse of Chinese cultural treasures.

Photography is strictly prohibited so I didn’t take any photos of the exhibits. My favourite artifact was a stone that looks like a piece of sio bak (roasted pork).

I was also enthralled by the elaborate storage mediums and great emphasis the ancient Chinese placed on preserving literary works and paintings. It seems that words are as priceless as jade and gold.

But now, words come cheap.
