精緻享受逛街、行百貨公司的樂趣 Enjoy a day of delicate shopping and department store visit

在巴黎購物,除了到各品牌朝聖外,如果想避開人潮,享受購物、藝術及擴閱眼界,可到Le Bon Marche。它是巴黎當地的高級百貨,檔次媲美英國的Harrods,但沒有大批的觀光客,而且擺設非常精緻,店員服務態度也很好。這裏一樓賣國際頂尖品牌,2樓賣時尚女裝,3樓是家居用品,書店等等,4樓是兒童衣物,玩具,B1是男士用品及時裝。這裏空間感很大,自然光充足,有一種行街也很Chic 的感覺。逛完本館後可到La Grande Epicerie, 看看全世界頂級食材的超市 - 光是逛也令人大開眼界。

There are an alternate way to enjoy your shopping in Paris. Escape from the crowd, you can visit Le Bon Marche for a day of shopping, art and simply opening horizons. It is a high-end department store as if Harrods in the UK, but mainly for locals. Sophisticated display and friendly staff will certainly impress you. On the first floor you can find a collection of international brands, second floor is lady’s contemporary, third floor is homeware and bookstore etc., the fourth floor is kids wear and toys, while the B1/F is men wear and accessories. Feel chic with its spacious and natural sunlight setting. Can further your shopping journey at La Grande Epicerie – be amazed with the international top-notch supermarket with the best produce in Paris.


Very fashionable with the art installation on the top floor.

逛累了到La Grande Epicerie海鮮區,吃生蠔,非常新鮮,價錢十分合理。

Try some fresh oysters at the La Grande Epicerie seafood section if you are tired. Affordable and fresh!

與其是血拼,不如到Saint Honroe 掃貨,這條街沿途都是品牌外,更有潮人界聖殿Colette,Goyard、Herme’s旗艦店、Chanel、 Christian Louboutin 、Roger Vivier 、LV …

I’d recommend shopping at Saint Honroe – where you can easily find an array of brands, the fashionable icon Colette, Goyard, Hermes flapship, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Roger Vivier, LV …

紅了多年的有型 Hotel Costes也位於Saint Honroe。

The chic icon – Hotel Costes is also located in the Saint Honroe.

Taichung – A stay in Old England Manor with Mom


一個很特別的假期,忙碌的工作過後需要休息,也想擴闊自己的眼界,同時媽媽原來未到過台灣,所以決定帶她到台北及台中一趟。口密的我從來沒有告訴她,我早已訂了老英格蘭園 (Old England Manor) 或任何一間酒店。照顧我這個任性而又好奇心重的女兒這麼久,很想給她驚喜!

It’s a very special holiday. It is a break for work, an opportunity to widen my horizons, as well as an occasion to take Mom to Taiwan for the first time. I wanted to give her a surprise in the accommodations – thank her for taking care of a willful and curious daughter for so long.

這個英國 Turdo建築風格的古堡位於情境,華麗典雅,䇄立於1700公尺山間,雲霧、陽光時聚時散, 神秘又富魅力。這個建築由構思至落成歷時9年的時間,耗資超過2億新台幣。所有建材、木雕和家具全由歐洲進口。整座古堡分3個區域,只得23間房,每一間房也用頂級的Focal Utopia的音響,浴室用Hermes或BVGARI 精緻淋浴用品。房間每天都貼心附上一個surprise 給我們,晚餐更邀請所有客人到堡主的莎士比亞音樂廳,享受過百萬法國 Focal Utopia 音樂的共賞會,也讓住客互相認識、一起喝酒、小吃和聊天。古堡內有很多複製的藝術品給住客欣賞。這裏私隱度很高,不開放給外賓,參觀人仕只可到這裏享用有名的傳統英式下午茶,可參觀餐廳和室外庭園。清境溫差很大,白天和晚上可相差10度,必須帶多一點衣物。住在這裏認識了莊園內的服務員,每一位都很貼心和細心,每天除了與賓客談天說地外,也特別照顧我媽媽,離開時真的很不捨得這個地方。

The Old England Manor was built in Turdo architecture style on top of the hills in 1700m of Cingjing. Elegant and grand. Charming and mystery as well with the on and off mists and sunshine. It was built with NT$200 million for 9 years.  All building materials, wood sculpture and furniture were imported from Europe. The castle is in divided in 3 zones, a total of 23 rooms. Each room is equipped with top-tier AV brand Focal Utopia and Hermes or BVGARI shower supplies. Guests will receive a daily room surprise, and are invited for dinner with the Host and enjoy a Focal Utopia concert in the Shakespeare Conference Room. It is a fabulous opportunity for guests to chill out with some drinks and bites together. There are many  artwork replica in the castle. One to note about the castle – high privacy level – visitors are restricted to enjoy the renowned afternoon tea in the restaurant and take a walk in the outdoor garden only. Recommend taking more outfits with you – Cingjing ‘s temperature contrast up to up to 10 degrees between day and night. I missed the stay so much – for the considerate and sociable hotel guests who had taken a very good care of my mom!


Just an hour high-speed-train ride from Taipei to Taichung.


The hotel is surrounded by lovely hills.


High up in the hills, with constant changing weather. Watch out the cloud sea if lucky.


As if you were in Europe at this delicate castle.

大堂禮賓部 (Reception) 帶有強烈的 Turdo 色彩。

Strong Turdo touch in the Reception.

房間雅緻,大得可給一家四口子住。每房設minibar, 每天供應最新鮮的生果,替換讓你驚喜的小吃。配以Focal Utopia 音響、50吋LCD電視機,Super King Size 大床,一切都是最優質的享受。

Elegant room design which can house up to a family of 4. There is a minibar with the freshest refill of fruits and surprising snacks on a daily basis. The best in-room experience with Focal Utopia AV, 50-inch LCD TV and Super King Size Bed!

Corridor connecting to different zones of the castle.


Many tourists come for the renowned English Afternoon Tea.


At the Miyahara: The Dawn Cake. Check out the “Harry Potter Library”. Architecture dated back from the Japanese colonial times


A huge shelf for books and accessories. Just like the hundred-drawer shelf in Traditional Chinese Medicine clinics.


Glass ceiling of the atrium on the 4/F. Perfect sunlight for the indoor area.


Handmade candy of the Dawn Cake.


Very delicate packaging of this brand. Many people come for ordering wedding cakes. Recommendation for souvenirs: Pineapple Cake and Sun Cake!


Dining at Zui Yue Lou on the 2/F. The best Taiwanese Milk Tea I’ve ever had with the Beauty leaves in the recipe.


Plain tea is refreshing too.


A Taichung platter.


The exclusive Miyahara ice-cream – such a big portion and topping for one.


Surprised to locate a collection of Japanese style of buildings here and there in Taichung. Recommend one of them – Lin, Chih-Chu Memorial Building, a former residence of Professor Lin. Simple and elegant.


The painting pigment was well preserved for exhibition. Long forgone pigment mixed with minerals.


Prof. Lin was influenced by the Japanese culture a lot, as seen from the Japanese dining room.


Some artwork of Prof. Lin. Delicate brushwork. Influenced by the Japanese woodcuts, you can see the Japanese touch and flat in his presentation. Sparkling   with the special mineral touch too.


In love with the flowers and birds of Prof. Lin’s artwork which you can share the peace and harmony from his end.
