Shopping in Taiwan Part 1 在台湾的购物经验 之一

Hello Everyone, welcome to floranze.wordpress.com where I share my thoughts and comments. I am going to blog about my shopping experience in taiwan on some of the most hardworking and welcoming people I have met during my recent trip to Taiwan. This is a long overdue post but it’s better to be late than sorry.

大家好,欢迎来到我发言的小空间。今天,我想跟大家分享我在台湾的购物经验,也想在此分享几感激我在台湾遇到的商家,他们是我遇过最努力,最热情的商家,贩卖着自己的作品。回来澳洲也有一个月了,是时候好好收拾心情开始分享咯。

The aim of my last trip to Taiwan is to attend my friend wedding and we had an amazing time. Taiwan has a special place in my heart, however, I was working up to the day I fly out thus I did not have time to pack, in fact, I started packing 3 hours before my flight. JOY! As we were walking along the old streets of Taipei looking for street food, we discovered this post. We stopped and read the sign that caught my attention and decided to had a look inside as I did not bring my accessories with me for the wedding.

这次来台湾的目的是参加高中同学的婚礼,在台湾的那些日子非常愉快。由于之前太忙碌,根本没有时间整理行李,我在飞机起飞的三小时前开始整理,太佩服我自己了!理所当然只带了需要的物品。那天,当我们走在台北的老街想要找东西吃的时候,看见了一张引起我瞩目的帖子。我停下来,把每一个字给念完 ,决定到店里看看因为我什么首饰都没带。

当时的我只想买一对耳环因为我完全没有带任何饰品,所以很自然地走进了这家店。Ruby的老板/设计师亲手设计及制造这些美丽的饰品。非常厉害的创意,风格和材质。小店里摆放得很漂亮,很温馨。Sep非常亲切,聊了一下自己的背景及创意的来源等。

I have learnt a lot from Sep even though we had a short conversation. Love what do. 在年轻台湾设计师身上学了不少,这次台湾之旅让我更珍惜当地设计师平牌,了解背后的故事,艺术会更美.

LiShr Taiwan,李氏手工坊 市民大道一段100号

We met up with our high school friends again after having a great day at jiu fen. We had nice food, good company and everything was perfect. We had too much to eat and decided that we were going to go shopping at the city mall. Michelle brought me to this shop, saying that I should check this place out, I was like, ok ok, let’s have a look. Handmade, once again, beautiful coin purse, perfect for souvenirs. A friend told me that it is famous for its bling and a map of taiwan on the zip!

在九分吃喝玩乐一天在跟高中同学聚会,结果又吃太饱,我们一群人决定走走逛逛吧。走着走着,就走到地下街,小丝说一定要来这一家店,好吧,我来看看,结果,被他们的手工包吸引,那中国风,颜色搭配的非常漂亮的小零钱包太可爱了。拉链上有着一颗闪闪发亮的bling,还有台湾宝岛的地图。非常适合当伴手礼。

The owner is super friendly and down to earth, from our conversation, it is obvious that he loves Taiwan, his country very much. I could not talk too much as I was losing my voice. I told him that I love the culture of Taiwan Indigenous People and we had a good chat about it. Cards are accepted in this shop which is a plus as we were running out of cash that time.

老板非常友善,在我们的对话中,可以看得出来他非常爱自己的祖国台湾,当时不能说太多话因为我感冒没声音。之后,也讨论了台湾的原住民文化。重点是这家店可以刷卡,当时我们身上的现金快没了。

We went back the next day again as we wanted to buy more products. The owner gave little presents to all of us, I got the magnet and that beautiful key chain. Big Thanks.

隔天再回去因为还没买够,老板给了我们小礼物,磁铁和富有原住民文化的钥匙圈,谢谢老板。

I have learnt form the owner that your business will grow with passion and establishing a good relationship with your customers.

在老板身上学到爱自己所做的,以它为荣,真诚的对待每一位顾客。在老板身上看见台湾人的努力,用心,热情。

Dolly Club 朵莉俱乐部 台北地下街Y区 (Y18出口旁)

After buying heaps of coin purse from Lishr, Michelle brought us to a small stall selling Dolly Club waterproof products.

Michelle: Have you heard of Dolly Club?

Me: No.

Michelle: You will love it, they are so cute.

Me: Really? (Oh yes, I wish I could buy the whole stall)

在李氏手工坊逛好后,小丝就到我们到朵莉俱乐部小店看看。

丝:听过朵莉俱乐部吗?

我:没有

丝:你会喜欢的,很可爱。

我:真的吗?(是真的,恨不得都买了,选择困难症,太多花色,太多款式,全部都喜欢)

I bought quite a few products from the store but I have given some away already, so these are mine mine mine. We still could not get enough of owl from the morning as we were walking around jiu fen. I bought more owls home with me, LOL. These bags are fabulous as they are waterproof. Customers are spoilt with choices as they have a huge collection of different products ranging from handbags, backpacks, lunch bags, purse, coin purse, phone cases.

我在这家店买了好几种商品有些已经送人了,所以上图的全部都是我的。因为早上去了九分,还在被猫头鹰荼毒中,所以一口气买了好多猫头鹰回家。这些包全都是防水的,价钱公道,实用。有选择困难症的我花了好多时间因为他们有好多选择,款式,包款。

The owner of this shop is a humble gentleman, didn’t talk too much but patiently wait for us as we were troubled with choosing products that we wanted. He told us that he sells them at the best price as other stores may mark the price up and yes, he was right, we had a look around afterwards and yes, a few stores are selling them at a higher price.

老板是一位不多话,但很诚实的先生,很有耐心的在等一堆女生选包包。他说价钱没有比他便宜的了。确实,我们买了之后再走几家,别家店确实卖的比较贵。

Likewise, we went back the second day to buy more products but this time, he was not there, there was this lady who is friendly and we had a long conversation. She is the owner’s wife. They take turn to look after the store and she then introduced the bags to us patiently. We had a lovely time shopping with them as I had to spend a while choosing that one product that I have to buy.

同样的,我们隔天又倒回去买,这是没看到老板,却又一位女士在卖,原来是老板娘,非常亲切,我们天南地北的说了许久。他们轮流看店。非常美好的购物经验。再次看到台湾人的努力,细心。

This trip has enable me to learn more about the culture in taiwan. The people I have met are lovely. I love Taiwan!

这次的台湾之旅让我学习了很多。在台湾遇到的人事物都是美好的。台湾,赞啦!
