    Luke, you are such a natural in front of the camera. I really love the fact that you both put out TV quality vlogs week after week, however, having watched some of your older videos, the most amazing transformation has been in Sabrina. Wow, she seems to have really found her feet recently……. long may that continue. I look forward to every video that you both give us the privilege of watching. Excelsior.

    3:38 "ba-wan" sounds like Taiwanese.. also, you should just ask them what's inside. If the store owner doesn't speak much English, I'm sure there are young people around you can ask.. satisfy your viewers' curiosity as to what's inside the mystery meat ball :p (later on you figured out the contents, but just in general, don't be afraid to ask around)

    I had a great trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong in April, but now watching videos from there makes me a little bit sad. Because I got to see and try so many things, but I also missed so many things, and I don't know if I'll ever be back.

    Lukey, the broth needs tendering meaning need to stew the meat for longer. You might just have a new batch where he just filled it with water and needs to have it stewed for awhile before it is stronger you know what I mean. Did I see an Indian lady wandering past towards the end? What is she doing in Taiwan? Please can you kindly do a visit to Teresa Teng's grave as I think she is originally from Tainan too. What a sad loss and a wonderful voice especially with the songs like "Goodbye My Love" and the "Moon represents my heart."

    OMG, Luke, since you love bamboo shoots, may I ask whether your have Panda gene in your DNA? LOL. Sabrina, you look like an ancient princess from the mythology of Three Kingdom with your hair up as in the previous video instead of having it loose and straggly. Good to see you all revisited Taiwan again. Follow Hailey, the Mormon girl who speaks fluent Mandarin and her engagement with the wonderful people of Taiwan.
