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)

台北世界貿易中心展覽大樓 Taipei World Trade Center

The Taipei World Trade Center (台北世界貿易中心展覽大樓 ) is another famous modern architectures next to ATT 4 Fun, Vieshow Cinemas and Taipei 101.

Maybe it had something to do with the fact that, every time I walked by the area near ATT 4 Fun, I will see the sign for "Taipei World Trade Center Hall 3"-- Some how, I had in mind that the Hall 3 of Taipei World Trade Center was also one of the buildings I was looking for.

After my visit inside of Taipei 101, I decided to look for it... or... to look for the Hall 3 of the Taipei World Trade Center... more exactly.  Coming out of Taipei 101, I saw this building that looks mighty like a lego castle-- interesting looking building, which was the first structure of Taipei World Trade Center.  As I walked down the street, in search of Hall 3, I went on checking out the legoland and taking some pictures of it while thinking to myself...

"Nice and interesting building though not the building I am looking for."

So I kept on walking in search of the famous Hall 3... and I found... this one story concrete structure in front of Taipei 101 in my face.  And I went... "You gotta be kidding me... this one is considered to be one of the most famous building in Taipei?"  8-O (No offense Hall 3, but if you are a famous building in Taipei, yours truly would also be a famous rat's ass in the whole wide world.  lol)...

Since it was not long before it was reported in the news that some of the miniature models in the East Mall were mislabeled, so I thought instinctively, "Maybe they got it wrong on this one as well since the legoland seems to be more of an interesting building... unless I have remembered it wrong."

Though I didn't think that I was wrong and didn't want to jump into conclusion about the Hall 3 was yet another labeling error, I decided to take a better look at the main building of the Taipei World Trade Center (台北世界貿易中心展覽大樓 ).... so I walked on and walking on... viewing the building from all angles....

Only to realize after I got back home that- it had always been the Taipei World Trade Center (台北世界貿易中心展覽大樓) that I was looking for.  Ain't no trace no where leading to Hall 3.  No minority report on this one.  lol

This round, after I wrongfully believed that it was Hall 3 that I was looking for, I decided to check out the "wrong" building instead... and... voila... it was right!  And they say that two wrongs doesn't make a right?!  8-O lol

The night scene of the Taipei WTC in the night... with the changing of the colors for the lights... So they say, you cannot step in the same water twice.  Can you take the same photo of the same still object twice?
