On what I walk to see...

"Objects do not have any intrinsic meaning- that meaning is conferred on them by us- and that different people, and the same person at different times, may confer different meanings on the same object." (Hammersley, 1989, p. 135)

ATT 4 Fun (Formerly known as New York, New York)

The modern building housing ATT 4 fun was also formerly known as New York, New York.  Though I remember visiting it back when it was still New York, New York... can't find the pictures I might have taken... possibly before my entering into the era of digital photography.

Anyways, went back to visit it and checked out the shops and washroom as well... 8-O lol

At some point, before or after the venture to the washroom, I realized that... if the owner of ATT is still the same person, I might have know this guy and actually hanged out with him in my much younger years.

At that point, I was one of the "student reporters" at ICRT (International Community Radio Taipei).  For an international event of some sort, my friend and I volunteered to "escort" some of the international guests- think they might have been very well-to-do people of some sort... The duty was to keep them company and translate for them when necessary- nothing spicy.   lol  Might have made a dime or two though I don't remember no more...

We followed them around town and was also at the Jade market.  We met the owner of ATT the night when we took the guests to the karaoke.  After a good night out- everyone singing, drinking and eating, the gentleman even gave my friend and I a lift back to my parents' place.

Though having nothing to do with the building itself... what came to my mind... when seeing the name "ATT" on the building. lol

Various dates- 4/7/2012
