Taiwan: Addiction Aquatic Development 上引水產

Comprising of an upscale, modern looking seafood market, sushi bar, restaurants and gourmet grocery, Addiction Aquatic Development 上引水產 (AAD) is definitely the place to go to if you are looking for good quality and affordable sushi.

Being a seafood fanatic, I knew I had to add this place to our itinerary during our stay in Taipei, and I didn’t regret doing so. We took the metro and alighted at Xingtian Temple station, which was a 10-15 mins walk from there. Plan your itinerary properly as it can get really crowded, especially during meal times.

So what was the hype about AAD?

Live Aquamarine Area

What first greeted us was this massive live aquamarine area with king crabs, abalones, scallops, clams, you name it, they have it. You can select your seafood and the staff will cook it for you on the spot. How cool is that?

Ready-to-eat Food

If you are pressed for time, you can simply grab a bento or ready-to-eat food like snow crabs, unagi, seafood, sashimi and do takeaways. It’s that convenient.

Grocery Section

Their grocery section is massive! They have everything – meats, fruits, frozen seafood, ice cream, mentaiko, chips, sauces and the list goes on. It reminds me of Emporium but on a larger scale.


There’s even a florist here, with some merchandises on sale.

Dining Area

The Sushi Bar is the most popular eatery here, we were lucky that we didn’t have to wait for long before we get seats. Uh no, we had to literally stand throughout the whole meal though. Other areas are the Hot Pot, Charcoal Grill and Seafood Bar, which are not as popular.

Chefs in preparation.

We were given a complimentary miso soup with salmon bits. Super yums!

Fresh sashimi set with salmon, tuna, prawn and sea bream.

The Deluxe Sushi set is totally worth the calories and is an affordable indulgence priced at NT$600 (S$28) which is worth repeated orders. They have other sushi sets ranging from NT$210-NT$980, which nothing in Singapore comes close to this kind of pricing and quality.

Happily tucking in! smile I’ll definitely revisit if I’m ever in Taiwan again.

B&J Wedding: Dumarks Productions – The Meeting

We first engaged Dumarks Productions for our solemnization in 2012. Here is the video then – vimeo.com/83948548 Gosh can’t believe it has been 5 years! surprised

This time, we’ve engaged them again to produce the video for our actual wedding day. smile

We met up with the production team a couple of times to discuss about the actual day’s expectations. We wanted to incorporate some snippets of our solemnization into the video and so, the content of the video will be more light-hearted and fun.

Mark and his team are sincere and humble, and I do agree that they provide one of the best wedding videos out there. Do check out their Facebook page or Vimeo channel to view more of their works.

Counting down to 17 June! Can’t wait to see the final production of the video. I’ll be sharing more closer to date! smile
