Game of Thrones S08E03 The Long Night Is The Worst GOT EP Ever

When I watched this episode, I thought it was OK. But the more I thought about it, the worse it got. It’s probably the worst GOT episode ever. It’s so far off the source material that it’s completely something else.

Warning: spoilers ahead!

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Max Level & Onwards (1.07)

A few weeks ago, I hit the max level of 50 in AC: Odyssey. At that point I was still not done with the main quest, but I’ve done so many side quests, gone around and visited many places that it was kind of a given. I have to say that whenever you hit the level cap in any game, it’s kind of sad, because there’s no longer any point in getting XP. Ubisoft promised players extra ability points for accumulating XP even after they hit level 50 once they increase the level cap. This happened last week with update 1.07.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Last week, I went to one of the gaming stores situated at the Taipei Main Station underground mall. They’re all in the same area, and I usually park around the entrance of Y13. I preordered the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, as I wanted to make sure to have a copy for the weekend. It was scheduled to be released on Friday.

Calligraphy Practice

I’ve been doing pretty well practicing my Copperplate script, so I decided to try out Gothic. It was pretty good. It’s a mix between modern and pointed quadrata minuscule. I think because I have been drilling myself to produce the same letters over and over again in Copperplate, the whole process was fun in Gothic. As an expert whom I visited today mentioned, I’ve still got to work on flourishes, which is something that I haven’t tackled at all. It’ll come once I’m satisfied with the regularity of my letters.

Safia Nolin – Limoilou

Quand Safia Nolin a apparu dans ma TL FB, j’ai écouté quelques-unes de ses chansons. Frappé par sa voix et de sa mélancholie, j’écoute Limoilou de temps en temps. Ça me rappelle le Québec. Ça me fait penser en français. La majorité de ma journée se déroule en anglais. Je dois avouer que je ne me rappelle pas pourquoi les québecois dans ma TL l’ont mentionnés.

Je prends des nouvelles de temps en temps, mais je vis dans le moment, pas dans le passé.

Yushan Hiking Trip October 1-3 2016

Proof that I made it to the top of Yushan

A few months ago, I saw Richard Saunders posting on Taipei Hikers about an upcoming hiking trip to Yushan, Taiwan’s highest mountain at 3952m. Since I knew that it took time to get the permits and even then, it wasn’t a sure thing, I jumped on the chance to climb this peak. At the time, I was quite fit. As the months passed, and the climb came closer, I actually had no idea what to expect. I had some issues with my previous employer, and had started a new job in September, so I honestly didn’t have much time to get back into the gym and running. Before I knew it, the climbing trip was upon me. I took the time off work, and bought some supplies.

Big in Japan

I had a week off in July, so we decided to go to Japan. Specifically, Tokyo, with a short trip to Osaka. Naturally, Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios were on the menu. But first and foremost was the Ghibli Museum, located in Mitaka, Chiba. Unlike some of my other travels, we paid for everything besides transportation and food before we left. This was an interesting difference. After talking with a friend who is currently living in Japan, we decided to use AirBnb for the whole stay. This proved somewhat trickier than I thought, but it allowed me to sort out a Taiwanese PayPal account connected with the only bank in Taiwan that supports PayPal, E.Sun Bank.
