My very first trip to Taiwan!
Midnight flight on the 2nd via Scoot!
Met Sally at T2 and check-in our baggage
mine was like 6kg? Seriously brought super little stuff over.
been soooo friggin long since i last travelled by air
Transit at Taiwan before it heads to Tokyo Narita
With Sally! <3
Airport transfer to Xi Men Ding!
But all the shops were closed.
They start operating only around 1130am?
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
Sally orders the yummiest food
stole a bite from her yummy chicken bun
Since all shops were still closed,
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
took a train from Ximen tp Hou shan pi
for shopping at Wu fen pu
Shops at Wu fen pu only operates in the afternoon
like 2pm plus
鲁肉饭 at 胡须张
Shops and Sally at Wu Fen Pu
Exhausted after shopping so we flagged a cab back
to finally check-in to our room
Stayed at Amba Hotel in Ximending!
we headed out again with Sharyn & co to Shilin night market!
Shilin night market!
IMO, Shilin has more attractive stuff to shop than at Wu Fen Pu
Smelly tofu and duck blood cake
Both not in my list of edible food.
SUPER LOVE THE CHICKEN SKIN
After our street-food dinner,
we headed back to Ximending and had drinks at a bar
near Ximen Red house
back to the hotel!
2nd round ha ha ha
magnets to stick on the door when u really want the housekeepers to get lost
woke up the next day for hotel breakie!
then to Ximen’s Ah Chung Noodles!
with pig intestines!
stood there savoured the noodles in the cold weather
to the bank to change MORE SGD
and then to shilin again WAHAHAHAH
TOURISTS ha ha
Combed shilin like a wholesaler
Got that black bag with hearts at shilin for like 10sgd
Love it love it
see my skull skeleton ring
the body dangles and moves ard HEHEHE
went back to the hotel and nua
had our dinner at Ximen
very poor thing just went to bank to change extra sgd
but im left with this
cant even buy more packs of gum
So i went back to the hotel’s money changer.
Supposed to go to club myst with the rest
but cover charge was like 700-1000NT
lame shit i rather go powerhouse. free entry
So us girls headed out late at night to the almighty 24hours watsons
The next day!
Had lunch at a really good Braised beef noodles place!!
these 2 also not on my edible list.
reallllly tender and aweeeesome
freeeezing at the airport
i came to taiwan with a 6kg luggage
i could hardly zip that luggage
with the group!
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
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!
