Early End of Winter

One thing that make me curious about Taiwan is that they have a winter season.
Because i came from a tropical country that only have 2 seasons (dry and rain)

When first time i came here, Taiwan is in the end of summer and it's freaking hot, 10 times hotter than my country.
But the temperature slowly drop in the beginning of December.

Even though i'm a little bit dissapointed because there were no snow in Taiwan, but the temperature already make me uncomfortable all days. Especially the day when the wind blow very strong.

But in this year something special happen. The winter season ended early, my friends said that last year, the winter end after Lunar New Year but this year the temperature already rise before the Lunar New Year.

As for me, i'm a little bit glad and dissapointed at the same time because now i can have a shower with cold water again but i also have to endure the hot temperature again.

Well hope next year the weather will be nice.

I know what you mean. What I really don't like living in Taiwan is the humidity. I am trying to grow out my hair so when it gets really curly - it doesn't look like Shirley Temple gone wrong. haha. =)

I grew up in Maine so I can relate about the snow.

Oh you're absolutely right.
I feel that Taiwan's humidity slowly kills me. ;p

Wow..you're come from Europe?
I really hope that i can visit and travel to Europe someday(i have to collect money first XD)

So, are you live in Taipei right now?
I haven't go to Taipei, hope that this Lunar holiday i can visit there. :D

Oh no, Maine is one of the states in USofA. :) I'm mixed with hispanic/European heritage. My dad, on the other hand, lived in Germany for a while and wants to go back. xD

Oh yeah, you have to exchange so much just for one euro. It's insane. Very expensive.

I go back and forth between Taipei and South Florida (UsofA). My husband is Taiwanese, so we go there for friends, family, and classmates. We're actually thinking about moving there as residents. We'll see. :)

I hope you do! I can't wait to go to the South. =O
