Reasons why Taipei is adorable

Everything they sell is so cute that you involuntarily turn into a cartoon character,

the ceiling in the airport makes me dream of an umbrella filled sky,
you can take a train around the mall,

or ride around on a funny looking animal.
The buildings make silly faces at you,
and they also have tons of cat cafes!



There's outdoor bubble machines,
afro dogs,

and some restaurants will give you free food if you kiss someone!

I think a "kiss the chef and you get free food" -Restaurant would be great idea in every city :D

At the airport? Wow that is fun. And the outdoor bubble machine. I was at Art Prize in Grand Rapids, MI yesterday and they had a huge mix of bubbles so people could blow bubbles in the street.

Nina said...

so fun. I've seen lots of those umbrellas at fairs and farmer's markets this summer. I've even seen them used as a cover for ceiling lights which I think is an awesome idea and will definitely use in the near future.

Lil said...

Those cat cafes are so awesome! They should be in every city in the world...

jdavissquared said...

It does look like fun! I'm so intrigued with the cat cafes!

❤Cate❤ said...

Hello Kitty hospitals & airports, toilet restarants and cuteness around every corner I swear this is the country where I belong, one day hopefully I'll make it there and make it my home xoxo

hope505 said...

..okay, you got me. I'm stunned. I saw your post on the cat cafe and thought it was very cool, but surely the only one of its kind...now you're saying ther's MORE than one? And buildings with faces? All these things are the norm rather than the exception? I want to believe it's truly the way things ARE and not just your clever whimsical eye!

poet said...

Adorable indeeeeed! Squeeee! I especially love the bubble machine.

I always enjoy your happiness-inducing art! :)

Cheers,
poet

kim said...

Where are all the people? Beijing was crowded, you could never take pictures like that without a ton of people in them. I thought Taibei was the same way?

Love it! imagine every country had cuteness like this....what a fun world we would live in! great pics ;-)

Melen said...

It is nice to see Taipei through fresh eyes. I have lived here for 7 years and some days it loses its cuteness. I just need to head over to the bubble machine more often!

colormekatie said...

@Alison- I know, people would freak out because of it being all unsanitary. The cats sit all over the clean plates and tables. I don't mind though! ;)

MariaAyelen said...

So... let's just say I'm running late for my therapist because I got stuck loving your blog. Let's just say you are replacing psychology, and let's just say you inspire me to let myself be. Firt step, I started a notebook, MY notebook, and It's helping. Greetings from a teen artist (or soon to be) in Argentina.
p.s.: you and Matt are like a super duper cute couple... but don't get too excited, you can't beat my boyfriend and I. HA!

leighana said...

I LOVE you blog. You take unbelievable photographs. One day, when I get married, I would love for you and Inbal Sivan to take the wedding photos here in Norway!

claylady said...

I have a friend from Singapore and everything is fun and colorful there also. Why do all the crazy, fun places have to be so far away? I really need to go to that mall and airport. A good dose of happy is just what the doctor ordered.
