Finally, well enough to start my Taiwan trip blog again.
At the hotel for breakfast. Their breakfast.. eh.. nothing to look forward to. Just simple porridge and bread and butter.
Quite bad I must say, but the location of the hotel is good so I guess we just have to catch breakfast somewhere.
Maybe next time I will try staying at East Dragon.
Borrowed the Taiwan guide from Xin and this is a book that I want to rave. It’s in Japanese though but there are a loads of maps inside, information on what is good to eat, their opening hours, how to go etc. A really useful guide.
Went to the 排骨大王 that was introduced in the book. It’s quite near Rainbow Hotel, maybe about 15 mins walk away. The book wrote that it’s a famous shop and they can sell up to 1000 bowls of pai gu on busy days.
Walked into a little lane cos mum saw some fruits there and since the eatery is not opened, we took a short walk inside.
Guess what I saw..
Bet those clothes sure have a fishy smell in them..eeeks
Indeed the noodles were delicious.
The noodles are really Q.. although the ribs are a tad too hard to chew. But the soup and noodles were yummyzz
After our delicious breakie, we went shopping around 中山站. Went to First Chemical!
The one that Niu Er recommended in his book for DIY beauty products
Location : First Chemical
Station : 中山站
How to go: 15 mins walk. Exit at Exit 1 and turn left and walk straight. There’s a map at their webbie
See my mum closely scrutinizing all the skincare products. Shopping is in our blood.
In the end, she got one big bottle of serum and I got one bottle of collagen serum and some masks next door as well.
photo on the wall.. -_-
You can get the Ultrasonic Face massager here as well at 1575NT. But I think it’s best to get from the auctions which is cheaper. I got mine from Yahoo Taiwan Auction : eldobs. SHe charges only 1370NT and throws in 2 gifts as well. She does international delivery. Happie Shopping~
But if you are in Taiwan, you can just ask her to deliver it to your hotel, and pass the cash to the hotel counter staff. That’s what I did. =D
Lunch.. we were famished after all the walking.
After having our fill, we went to Yi Die for shopping. They were having this anniversary sale 买2000送200. Me and mum spent about $450 there ALL on lingerie. Keke. They have a whole floor of lingerie! Ultimate lingerie shopping!
Not really cheap but I find them really comfy and some brands, you cant find them in Singapore.
Used the discount to buy the newly launched Victoria jeans that Lin Zhi Ling modelled. Lurve the cutting~ need to alter the length..
Enuff of Shopping! we went to Xin Bei Tou~
It was still raining... =( but the weather was cool enough for some hot spring, otherwise we will be too hot.
Downside was, the place was quite beautiful.. if it wasn’t raining, the outdoor scenery will be great for pictures...
haizz too bad.
On the way there, we saw some teachers bringing a group of kids. From the back, they look so much like little ducks, so cute, and they kept talking and shouting while they walk. Really cute! =D
We crossed the road to join them, they were standing over longkang holes.. and the teachers were telling them
"zheng lian jiu hen shuai, hen mei "(cos there’s steam coming out from the longkang holes and the teachers were asking them to do some facial steaming) -_-
Even longkang oso got steam nor...
Mummy at the Hot Spring Museum
We chose Shui Do cos we didnt really see others around and they have discount in the tourist Pass. Yesh we are cheapo! haha
We chose private room bath for 2 hours to bathe in the comfort of a hotel room. Would have gone for the public one if it wasnt raining..
