Hello hello everyone!
Happy Friday to all and Im so happy that the weekend is here once again :D
I have church later on but here's a small quick post before we all go and enjoy the lovely evening.
Taipei 22 March
Woke up really bright and early for the 8.30am flight!
I was pretty sleepy, having slept late the previous night.
This time round was actually more of a trip for my in-laws who have always wanted to go to Taiwan.
We had a great deal of fun the last time round we went to Hong Kong & Macau so this year we decide to head to Taipei.
Here we are in the car on the way to the hotel.
Along the expressway to the city.
Stayed at the Sheraton for 2 nights
It was past lunch time so we wanted to go for a quick bite before we started exploring the place.
And where else but the original Din Tai Fung!
Its so much better to come here during off-peak hours becoz the last time we were here,
we had to Q for at least 30-45 mins!
I LOVE xiao long bao!
(The Mascot so cuteeeeee!)
Dig in, everyone...!
The ever so busy Din Tai Fung kitchen!
After a great lunch - its time for some shopping!
Along the way.
A retail shopping building cum museum.
Do I look like Im in a provisional shop???
Hahahhaa its such a nice wall painting leh!
Checking out the wishes made.
More street photography.
Taipei's all about eating and snacking!
This is the first time Im trying this muah chee-like snack..
its sooooo DELICIOUS!
They actually BBQ the muah chee and then put lotsa peanut powder over it!
And of coz... the BEST oyster mee sua in the world!
Why soooo shiok one!
It was so warm (crazy weather) so we went back to the hotel and changed into something lighter.
And went to SHILIN Night Market!
Serious shopping shit here.
This is my ultimate favourite smelly beancurd stall in Shilin but the queue is horrendous so you have to be really patient!
And for first-timers, there is a 'Takeaway' queue and a 'Dine-In' queue, so make sure you dun stand in the wrong line!
Or else will kena re-queue one lor.
Dun say I never say. :p
The glutton me.
This picture is soooo adorable!
Bored little girl waiting for her mother who is shopping in the shop!
This is the newly built Shilin food centre corner.
Just a stone's throw from the night market.
Basement food court.
But my clothes super food smell after eating there.
Their oyster omelette was pretty delicious!
Had a simple meal of ru rou fan (braised pork rice), meatball soup and oyster omelette and ended the night early coz we had to wake up for a tour to the outskirts of Taipei the very next morning!
Back with more and I'll take some time off this weekend to reply all the tags!
Sorry its taking so long but I promise I've read it all :D
Have a great weekend.. pixies.
My Jill Stuart loots from Taipei ... !!!
Its sooo pretty Im quite going crazy over all the pink!
(But sadly the makeup's so-so only.)
