Vigar: Oasis Pool Party

So about these pool parties, as far as I’m concerned, parties of the summer. There is no better way to battle a Saturday morning hangover than **gamboling poolside while tanning with a cocktail in one hand and the other moving with the music. It’s true that Taipei isn’t known for its plethora of pools. But nestled within the lush mountains surrounding Taipei is the Taipei Country Club, where pool party season is in full force every sunny Saturday afternoon. Alternating Saturdays, Liquid Lifestyle brings you a dip in the exotic OASIS, and Frog in the Sock offers you a little taste of HAVANA. One thing to be said about Liquid Lifestyles OASIS pool parties, is that everybody who is anybody and nobody is there. Frog In The Sock’s HAVANA wins for most eclectic and eccentric crowd and everything but Top 40 music. Both are packed with gorgeous girls and are a fiery fun time, and the ONLY place in Taipei to spend your Saturday afternoons. Unless of course you are boring and enjoy cold and dark places. Then you should stay home. O. * thanks to Nicolene Pretorius for playing (and letting me play) with the underwater camera. **gambol |ˈgambəl| verb ( -boled , -boling ; Brit. -bolled, -bolling) [ intrans. ] run or jump about playfully
