  • Many people visit the shrine in the hope of thriving business. The hotel is very close to the MRT station. There is a fortune-alley in the nearby basement.

  • I'm going to throw in the sectuplets, but the Taiwan are serious, so don't disturb us. You can have tea outside. There is a delicious restaurant with scallion cakes nearby. It is big and 50 yuan. I think that it is better than a famous shop in the East Gate.
