[ Taiwan ] Shifen Old Street 十分老街

after we left the Shifen Waterfall, we travel further up, and we arrived in Shifen Old Street. a street that build surrounded by the train railway. i bet is connected with the railway we saw in Shifen waterfall .

what to do here? remember the Sky Lantern we saw back in Shinfen Waterfall? that why we're here. here is specially meant for Sky Lantern.

there is mini latern that u can buy and keep at home. as souvenir .

write down the blessing phase, your wishes, your greeting, you message to someone. what ever, just write something on it.

different colour have their own meanings. which you write you wishes/dream/vision according to the color section.

Let start our painting session. and it's uses 毛笔(Chinese Brush Pen), gosh.. when is my last time to write words with it? secondary school? and imagine you do chinese calligraphy on wall?!? vertically!
