Part of our trip to Taipei was the Martyr's Shrine. When we went there, I honestly didn't have an idea what we are to see there. Since it's called Martyr's Shrine, it came to my mind that there will be statues of the martyr's considered by Taiwan. I imagined the statues to made of either stone or steel with layer of gold color.
But nothing like that was in the place. Totally different from what I was expecting. We went in the gates and saw a lot of people standing around. So, why were they standing around??? They were waiting for the guards. Then I realized that's what we came to see. We woke up early to see the changing of the guards in the Martyr's Shrine. It might be silly to believe that people wake up early and wait just to see the changing of guards, but seldom do you see something like that. They had a very disciplined formation!

It's a Chinese belief during CNY to eat a lot your favorite food so that good luck and abundance will follow throughout the year. Keeping with this tradition, our family decided to eat at one of our favorite Chinese restaurants in Manila - Peking Garden.
