[ 我們是光點 ]
We managed to pull off the last gathering in Taipei before the typhoon reached us. But we were surprised how quiet it turned out to be & we almost couldn’t feel it. But it made some distruptions to our original plan. We went to Cafe Lumiere in Taipei Spot. The place fell into… (continue reading...)
這次的颱風來前氣勢很大，但是走的卻淋漓盡致，悄悄地我來了，悄悄地我走了，台北沒什麼感覺，但新聞卻亂了我們的計畫。今年在台北最後的一次 gathering 在充滿文化與優雅氣息的台北光點 Cafe Lumiere。這裡曾經荒廢一時，但在重新改造後成了文藝電影愛好者的聚集地，我在這裡看過電影，上過電影課，看過…
… for some time in the past. But it was eventually turned around and transformed into a cinema for artsy or festival films. The places were renovated to include 2 cafes, a seminar room, a private dining room, and a gift shop. I’ve been there several times for movies, for film-making classes and also some film premiere. It was definitely a place that would make one linger and enjoy every moment in it.
The spot for my goodbye Taipei gathering of the year.
Cafe Lumiere 是位在一個很有文化氣息的歷史建築裡，這原來是大使館接待室，但有一陣子荒廢，可以在這張在門口的圖看到整修前和整修後的差異。
Cafe Lumiere is located in a heritage building. It used to be the guest reception room of an embassy. But it fell into ruins for some time. Outside of the cafe, you’d see photos of the cafe before and after renovation.
進入咖啡時光, 可能是因為是颱風天，所以早上時也沒甚麼人，所以我們就好像包了全場般. 現場是個可以容納 60 個人的空間，有分室內和室外。
Maybe because it was a typhoon day so people didn’t go out so early in the morning. So when we went around 11am, there weren’t many people around. & We had the whole cafe all to ourselves. This cafe has an inside and outside part. Can take around 60 people.
Here you can spend a relaxing morning or afternoon and catch a film at the SPOT cinema next store.
The cafe has a series of “movie-drinks” that are special drinks (without alcohol or with alcohol) with names of classic movies in Taiwan/China/HK cinema.
那天沒有 waffle, 所以就點了雞肉三明治的套餐.
There was no waffle that day so we ordered sandwich. This is the chicken sandwich.
The portion was quite big.
Another thing you can get here if you don’t want sandwich.
飲料呢, 這個是 “美好時光”.
“The Best of Our Time” Apple / Honey Smoothie.
這個是 “海上花” – 紫羅蘭，玫瑰，華麗美豔.
This is named the “Flower of Shanghai”. It’s iced violet/rose herbal tea.
比較有看頭的電影特調是這個 – 霓虹心.
This is another cool-looking drink you can get here – the name of this movie drink is Miss Kicki.
藍柑橘酸，玫瑰甜，愛情苦澀. 這是menu 上的敘述.
Sour blue orange, sweet rose and bitter love. That’s the description of the drink on the menu.
It’s iced specialties with alcohol.
Can have this marshmellow with hot chocolate.
This dessert is called “Golden Memories”. It’s mainly apple pie with cinnamon and a vanilla ice-cream.
