Accomodation at Taiwan

Image
KaoHsiung - Nanaimo

The place we stay at KaoHsiung is convenient for youngsters like us. It is near to train station and just next to a school. Luckily it is summer and we won't have to listen to bell sound early in the morning.

Did attach a picture of how it looks like. Do click here to view their site in details.




Kenting - Border hotel

Not really satisfied with this hotel as appearance is not the same as it appears on facebook. However it is situated right along the street of Kenting Night Market. Awesome place to fill your stomach whole night. Some other rooms looks fine maybe because we book it quite last minute and we had more people in this trip, that's why we did not able to get a better room.

Click in their facebook page or their website here for more details.




Tai Chung
Do not have an exact name for this. We are liking this very much because it is so comfortable and convenient too. It is within walking distance to Tai Chung night market.

Bento, Taiwan

Image
We were so lazy to go some where far to search for food, so we decided to stop by at this shop which was just walking distance from where we live. You would never expect too much from the appearance but things could always be the other way round.

They are serving food in bento style. I think it's quite environment friendly because they can save a lot of water to just clear all the dirty dishes and also save expenses because they don't need to employ another extra maid to help them to clean up the mess. Besides, all the paper are recyclable. You will find at most of the shop at Taiwan were very conscious about 3R. That is why Taiwan is much more develop than what Malaysia are today. The mindset is so different.




Food they served not only looks good but taste good too. Do not judge by the outlook and size. The portion is definitely big enough for you to handle. You will easily fill full after having maybe half of the bento set.

We are all loving it and truly satisfied with what the…

Taipei, Taiwan - Day 3

Image
It was our third day at Taipei. Our final day to see, eat and shop till drop before going to Tao Yuan and flying back to Malaysia. Went to Taipei Zoo. Heard it was one of the must visit because it is one of the attractions too.

Panda is our first pick because we have to queue up in number to see these panda all the way from China within limited time frame.

Here it comes.....and all the while he is turning round and round on the same track. I wonder whether he scares he is lost or he is scared of so many strange human beings watching him.

The zoo was so damn big. I think if you walk without a map you might easily get lost because street sign is far from each station we went.

Cute hippo bringing her kids down to bath. I think the baby hippo were tiny because it is cover by the water level when it walk down into it.



They were just too many of them to put all in here. Just selected a few to let all of you have a peep. Want to have great exploration? Come yourself to Taipei and experienced your…

TaoYuan, Taiwan

Image
We went down to Tao Yuan the next day by cab. I think Taiwan citizen really does friendly. They treat everyone very sincere.They send us to our hostel and send us to our next stop destination even though the driver were not familiar with the road at Tao Yuan. Just something similar to Disneyland, we went to "Xiao Ren Guo".

Everything is in mini size and so cute. We were like giant entering and wishing to destroy their home. The building is exactly the same with what we see in reality.

Saw leaning tower,Pisa....I really miss life in Europe. We still looks so mini even standing next to this great building.


The main character of this land, OPEN! I had no idea why they name it open but he is CUTE-NESS!



It's not only Taiwan but they have other magnificent and great building all over the world. You may had an early sight of this great building because they were exactly the same just difference in size.


We are having great time. Whole lots of fun in there. No time for other places. …

FORMOSA CHANG (鲁肉饭) - NON HALAL

Image
This is also one of the MUST eat when you're at Taiwan. There's a lot of similar shop but we see this is more attractive one.



I love their rice very much. I'm rice lover. The orange thingy is not carrot actually but I don't know what's the name in proper English.This is just too small for my appetite. But they do have LARGE size portion.


Pork
Yummy food. Love the sauce especially. That's what makes that whole plate of dishes truly awesome.

A - Vegetable
That's what they written in the menu. Love it because it is crispy and not over cooked but a little oily. The shape exactly looks like an A alphabet.

Tofu
Normal tofu, not stinky tofu. Not really my taste because it has a very heavy bean taste.

Pork Belly
Not much people love the fatty belly but I simply think it is awesome. I love it very much especially when you eat it with the slice carrot.


Taiwan is a food heaven. You can have food any time and hour. You won't be die of hunger unless you're out of cash.

Xin Bei Tou, Taipei - Day 2

Image
Second day at Taipei, we plan to go north. Place where it is spa heaven. There's some history behind this historical place however I couldn't remember what it is.

The library, the plum house and the public spa (溫泉) is a must visit. You will see most of the elderly were there to strengthen their bones.



Beautiful isn't it? Not easy to remain such an antique for so many years. This piece of thing is even older than me.

I just love the view from this window. How everything looks like in this house. So calming and relaxing.


We went to one of the hotel because ever hotel did offer spa. We choose this because they offer cheaper rate. We were like Jane going out of the jungle. Never been to a spa and we did not know we shall go wholly naked in there. Deep shit!!

However, it really relieves your stress and heal your body. Physically I mean as I don't know how does it feel like internally. Enjoy the session but feel awkward during the naked session.

Thermal Valley is a must visit be…
