[ 北投 ] 沒有泡溫泉的溫泉之旅

[ 沒有泡溫泉的溫泉之旅 ]
其實是要去探勘險峻的地形和危機四伏的 XYZ event 地點… 但好像又覺得是自己一夥人先去大快朵頤玩一番. xD After all, when you haven’t been to a place before, pleasant surprises are only “pleasant surprises” when it’s a “surprise”. haha. anyway…

We went on a short day trip to see what we photography group even thing we could do at this hotspring hub in the…


older days. The photo above is taken at the Beitou Hotspring Museum.


The exterior of the Beitou Hot Spring Musem. It was one of the major hubs for events and all sorts of happenings during the Japanese occupation era.


The entrance into the museum. Visitors need to leave their shoes on a shoe shelf and wear slippers in the house.


The ourdoor “amphitheatre” place of the hotspring museum.


At one time, the Beitou public bathhouse was the largest public bathhouse in Asia. That was back in the early years of the 1900s.


The huge black circular things framed on the wall are old LDs or Records of popular singers back in our mom & dad’s age (or even older than that!)


There’s also some screenings of old Taiwanese shows.. and I mean… OLD.
Just seeing some of the posters or film titles will make you burst out laughing. It’s wonderful.


This is a classic hotspring tub.

Since there were no one around, we went in there to take some pics. xP
不要懷疑.. 照片裡的人就是我. (呵~!)

雖然 photoshop 地很草率,不過這樣有就夠了 (除了像 Qoo 的那個腮紅還可以再暈開點).. :p

 


You can listen to the old songs that people of the hotspring era listened to.


Beitou Public Library 台北市立圖書館-北投分館.
I’ve seen many photos of this photogenic library from many photos others took. I guess it depends on the angle you take the photo. Sometimes it appears larger than it looks in real life. & Sometmes it looks like it’s entirely immersed in a jungle-like place.  But it’s really not. It’s just beside a park with lots of greenery.


The interior of the library. Everything has a very natural (& designer-style) look.

 


Inside the library. Everything is wooden & gives a very peaceful and modest feel.
圖書館裡的裝潢, 不知為什麼突然想到的形容詞是: 樸實+誠懇.


The glass windows of the library has words and drawings on them that promote eco-friendly ideas.

 


The baclonyofthe library – It’s like a resort! Visitors can sit outside to enjoy the sun and summer breeze while reading. Too bad Beitou is too far from my home. Otherwise I’d come here much more often!

The official “entrance” into the library.


The beautiful lotus blossoms in the pond outside of the library.

We had to feed our stomach somewhere:


After our survey, we all got hungry so someone recommended a Japanese restaurant somewhee near the MacDonald around the MRT station. The Obaasan in there was so kind and friendly. I almost thought she was like a Japanese old lady.


This is a set menu with baked fish (烤魚定食).
