Amber mastered the Tao of the Frisbee this afternoon on the lawn outside the Botanical Garden of the National Museum of Natural Science 国立自然科学博物館 in T'aichung (Taichū) 台中. After being shown how to flick her wrist when tossing the disc, and to use two hands to when trying to catch it, our little girl soon had it all down. She even developed a technique of catching the Frisbee using her thumbs, which I wasn't quite able to get the hang of, being all...thumbs. It was certainly a nice way to enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon.
Employing katakana 片仮名 on this sign apparently wasn't enough, as this rāmen ラーメン restaurant had a notice posted to the effect that it would be shutting its doors for good soon.
