1st time on Scoot airlines
the cabin’s legroom is so spacious!
definitely the comfiest of all the budget flights!


Camera 360
touched down at 5+am?
the wind and weather there is CRAZY
SO. FRI…GG..IN. COLD. BRRR!

Camera 360
Airport transfer to Xi Men Ding!



Camera 360
But all the shops were closed.
They start operating only around 1130am?



Camera 360
Left our baggage at our hotel and headed out for breakfast!
(more on hotel later on)
very pretty dining area right!

Walked to a nearby 永和豆浆stall for breakie
The rest ordered 豆浆 but they weren’t used to how different it is as compared to sg’s
cos its like salty? and super fermented kind

I took the very ordinary soymilk
I’m a hardcore cold drinks fan
I never ever have my drinks warm or hot
but the weather there beat me hands down
I succumbed to HOT DRINKS

that warmth in my hands…. soo awesome.
whereas in singapore, ask me drink hot drinks… go and die



Camera 360
Sally orders the yummiest food
stole a bite from her yummy chicken bun


Since all shops were still closed,

Camera 360
we went to WATSONS!!
4 level watsons, i get more excited over a 4 lvl watsons than a 4 lvl F21
& so… i spent too much there.

I feel damn dumb to keep buying naruko products from SG watsons
its so friggin cheap in Taiwan can

SCOOT BACK TO SINGAPORE!


I reaaaaaally love the weather in Taiwan in January
thou i whine every single day about how cold it is
how i dont wish to shower how cold my nose feels

Shopping ;
im a careful shopper in Taiwan as compared to BKK
cos i know during this season, the things that i get from Taiwan is not suitable for singapore
that helped me curb  impulsive buys like BOOTS TRENCHCOATS ETC
price for the clothes there approx 17 to 20 sgd? could be more

I drink warm bubble tea everyday and i love it
Drinking ice or cold stuff at taiwan feels so insane to me when i was there

guys all 1.8m cute, good hair day everyday, dress so well
Jasmine saw no ang mos there. so sad.

I thought i’d never like Taiwan
but im thinking of going back again!
80percent for the weather.
10percent for Shilin’s chicken skin

Thats about all!
