Stove Headed East on Bade Road


Do You Have a License?, originally uploaded by Patrick Cowsill.
Carlo, Shane and I were having refreshments in the Hi Life on Lane 12, Bade Road (八德), Section 3 yesterday when this stove drive drove by. I was cursing because I left my iPhone in the office. Whenever there is a good photo-op, I don't seem to have my camera with me. The quick thinking Carlo grabbed Shane's iPhone and went off in pursuit. The stove driver was a bit surprised when Carlo caught up for this shot (above).

Interesting picture; a FOOD TRUCK in TAIWAN style. Question for you Patrck, are there Real food trucks in Taiwan?

There is one near my office, a husband and wife team. It's more like a food van. They do traditional breakfasts: omelets, turnip cakes, etc.

They opened about six months ago, parking on a vacant lot. They seem to be doing better recently, especially the wife. At first, she couldn't fry more than one egg at a time, and she'd stare at it with a tired, expressionless face. She's still putting on the same face, but she's sped up a lot recently.

He was probably wondering why anybody would bother to take a picture of him.

Yep. That's probably right. The weirdest thing to him was someone trying to get a shot.

Patrick took a little historical license here.

Yeah, he looks rather calm when I look at the shot again.
