Day 2 - W hotel

We had BBQ at Hutong at the heart of Taipei City. Was a great combination as it was raining and it was freezing cold. After crossing over from malls to malls, we finally get to warm ourselves.

After that? Crossing back malls to mall to W Hotel for drinks.

Day 2 in Taiwan - Food, Raohe Market

This is the only hotel i've ever stayed in that serves McDonald's breakfast and served right at your door step. How cool is that?

So we all gathered at the lobby to hunt for more food outside, the Taiwanese roti canai for breakfast is a must. Mine is with bacon, egg and onions.

So after a quick light meal, we took a stroll around and realized Sogo Zhongxiao Fuxing is just around the corner. We had plans for an early "night" market shopping so we head down to Raohe next.

Since we were a little too early, we stopped by at a random beef noodle shop. Hey that's what they say if you are in Taiwan, you gotta eat beef noodle no matter what. So beef noodles it is.. to kill some time.

and the leg cramping, heel pain and heavy plastic bags begins. haa.

What is the best feature I like most about the ZTE Blade V7 Lite?

The Finger Print Sensor

Because it takes only 0.3 seconds to unload the phone, whoah :D

Taiwan Day 1 - arrival, via hotel zhongxiao, mala hotpot & Taipei 101 tower

8 March 2016 was the day we have been anticipating for months and finally it was the day of departure. We have never been to Taiwan and that marks of our travel check list. It took us to long to decide as we both can't really converse in mandarin. 

Our breakfast each time we fly somewhere is always Mc'Donalds! -- without fail.

It was about 4 hour flight and it has been a pleasant one. Took a one hour bus ride to the town and checked into Via Hotel Zhongxiao

After when we settled down, it's time to look for our friends who were already there. First meet up was with the whole gang at a famous hot pot restaurant.

Thanks to Jenny who helped us ordered a delicious mixture of meat and seafood altogether. We were stuffed, like really stuffed. When we were about done, I found another plate filled with meat. Gosh.

It was a casual first day, so after meal we stroll around the city of Taipei and manage to get a glimpse of the famous Taipei 101.

Up the crystal gondola at Maokong, Taiwan

Our first ever trip to Taiwan was a wet but fun one. Even though our mandarin sucks but we managed to to ask for an english menu in mandarin, ha!

And this is us lining up to go up to Mao Kong mountain with their crystal gondolas.
