    Visit to Taipei (G-Shock related content)

    Some G-Shock related photos from my recent visit to Taipei. First up is my visit to the Taipei G-Shock Store, their only official G-Shock store. Thank god that they allow photography .

    When I reached, the store is yet to opened (as you can see from the gate), but I am already impressed by the store front.

    Walked around and came back an hour later. Look at the store front design; the grills are updated with "2014" and with the lanterns as background, for the the upcoming Chinese New Year.

    I am very impressed with the interior of the store. First up, greeting me is of course the G-Man (telling me exactly which direction I should continue moving)

    I am really astounded by this wall art (or some will call it drawing or graffiti). This is a really stunning piece of art, one really need to see it in person.

    Excellent shots! I'll be visiting Taichung in April for my wedding photo shoot and then heading down to Taipei for another two days. Exactly which part of Taipei is the G-shock store?

    Got it! Hmmmm...Dunhua... Seems like near Zhongxiao Dunhua train station which is near a hotel I stayed (just beside Zhongxiao Xinsheng station) in late 2011.

    Thanks for the address and thanks for your wishes too!
