Yongning MRT hike and lunch at Belgium Pie's June 3

Okay, just announcing this. No exact time yet. But we'll take the MRT out to the new Yonging station, hike in the nearby mountains for a few hours and then go to Belgium Pie's for a late lunch.

Chris has already said he's interested, and Brian will likely go too. Who else?

Belgium Pie? You mean "Belgian Pie" don't you? :p

(I'm still moving house. We keep running into "obstacles", Taiwanese style, so I still can't make it. Sounds good though.)

I'm not sure but I don't believe it's a floating MRT station so it should be in its permanent location. In any case, what do you mean by late lunch? My day is pretty open so I don't care. I was thinking meet at the station around 9:30 or so and try to be a BP around 1-1:30.

Another time wix.

As for you others, 9:30am tomorrow. Meet outside the Yongning MRT station. If it rains as hard as this morning I won't go. But if it's a light drizzle or cloudy I will. Forecast for tomorrow is scattered showers. If it's like yesterday, we should be fine.

If it's really shitty when we get there well, we can always just go to Sanxia to look at the temple and old street and then have lunch.

Sorry, I'm just bringing knickers along instead.

See you guys there at 9:30. Still not too sure where the station is on Saturdays so I'll check with MM in the morning to see if I'm on the right track in hunting it down. Looking forward to it.

Rain gear will be packed for sure.

Glad to hear you are coming. Too bad Miss bouncy isn't. Anyway, here is a map.

Judging from Google Earth, Yongning Station is about 7.2km from Belgian Kitchen as the crow flies. Just FYI.
