In this community, business is very booming and the community is also the terminal market of tea, fabric and groceries in Taipei. Dadao-Cheng has not only all kinds of fabric, but also many outstanding tailors. Master Chen is one of the best cheongsam tailors in Dadao-Cheng.

Secondly, Time of the study is limited: Because we can only do study 2 hours a week, the time is very urgent.
