So since my time at Shida MTC is coming to a close, I have to start looking for a job. However, I've been on the hunt for it prior to today. If i'm to fulfill my goals of living in Taiwan, then I'll eventually need a job to pay for living costs. I'm just about at my spending limit, so if I don't find a paycheck, it's back to my mother country. Fortunately, through some networking, I was able to find a job at a local Taiwanese company. They've decided to interview me, so today my only goal was to find a suit. Actually this is my second day looking for a suit. But as the interview day is in a few days, I had to purchase something today or tomorrow. I went to Carnival and finally settled on a suit. Although it was more expensive than what I found at G2000, the extra price tag was worth the 3X increase in quality and fit. I'm happy and I hope I can leave a good visual impression. Now I just have to work on the professional impression so they choose me over the other applicants. For a quick lunch, Yuki and I headed over to a local japanese fast food joint. It also started to rain pretty hard, I mean HARD. Typhoon season rain with large water droplets! Lunch ended up being $300 because it was a fixed price set menu restaurant. You'd think ordering Sushi from a place like that would be crappy, but no. I've learned that sushi quality is pretty good here in Taipei for a really cheap price. Just take a look at the picture. That's a set price fast food Chirashi bowl! Later on in the evening, Yuki and I headed back home. On the way back home, we made a detour to Tea Guan, my favorite neighborhood drink store. We noticed they had mint chocolate pearl milk tea. mint chocolate!? We had to try it. Well...it certainly tastes like mint chocolate. But it's just such an odd combination. It doesn't taste bad, it's just way off the typical path of flavors you'd expect from milk tea.
