Back from Taiwan!!! :)
it was SO fun,
i felt like i was living there lah.
it was 2 years back when we went there,
but dan and i could remember almost everything,
from the hotel to the streets to the shopping centres.
i got most of the things i wanted
because this trip was mainly to get those stuffs.
everything went smoothly,
and i even met 7 taiwanese celebrities,
oh no no, its 7 taiwanese and 1 singapore. :)
and and and,
the guys there are so preeeettty lah!
can stand their flawless complexion!!
ok now PICTURES!!
nigel came and drove us to the airport.
ate and nua-ed abit,
then mom,mummy and nigel left.
we went in early for some duty free shopping.
the 100mls rule is so damn strict,
i had only like 30mls left in my bottle,
and they made it finished it on the spot!
so we had to buy a $3-for-350mls mineral water on board.
when we arrived at CKS international airport,
we realised that jonathan leong was on the same flight
he looked exactly like how he looked on tv
except that he's too overdressed.
we took the coach to our hotel,
dropped our luggage,
and left for Shilin Night Market.
guess who i saw????
i wanted to go over to talk to him,
but the train was so packed,
and when the crowd left,
we had to alight!!!!
singapore and taipei
xi men ding 西门盯
the v popular squid sausage
also v popular 炸鸡扒(deep fried chicken),
and bubble tea.
look at the amount of pearl and the cup size for just $1.50,
they have this chart,
where you can choose how much sugar syrup you want,
like half, of 2/3, of none at all
and and and,
dunkin donut lost!!!
this is soooooooooo good.
their mochi ring is ~heaven~
there were like 50 over kind of donuts,
and there's also a chart to indicate how sweet each individual donut is!
and their poster is super cute!
3 of us were busy shopping,
so by the time we reached the hotel it was already 1am.
we woke up at 8 and started preparing.
the guys took even longer than me to da ban!
then we had 豆浆油条opposite our hotel.
back then we used to eat there every morning!
then we headed to breeze complex(wei feng guang chang).
this place sells only branded stuffs.
brands like LV, coach, gucci, kenneth cole,
something like taka and paragon,
but this place is so luxurious.
they have people standing outside the complex to greet you,
with sign language even!
then when you go in,
all the sales rep will stand outside their respective shop and greet you one by one.
i wanted to take pictures,
but it was not allowed.
only the toilet.
my di ku was badly exposed. :)
xi men ding again
the v popular oh ah mi sua.
had smelly tau hoo and chicken backside for supper :)
the amount of things we bought for day 2
and the best buy for the day.......
kind of ex,
but its sooooo worth it!
it can hide craterssssss! :) :) :)
woke up rather late
cuz most shops open only at 11.
had breakfast at this shop which sells beef noodles.
we ordered different flavours,
and the beef parts were so nice!
for the first time,
i felt cheated by singaporeans.
the amount of beef they put in is equivalent to one entire piece of beef in taiwan!
and there were like 5-6 big pieces.
and the delicious 小菜(s)
then we headed to 五分铺 for some mass shopping!
its a wholesale market,
where most of the taipei shops got their stocks from.
its cheap if you buy a few,
but its definitely more ex than normal shops if you only buy 1.
they sell everything there,
for kids, men, women, elderly.
the v popular 胡须张鲁肉饭 (lor bak png)
we didnt buy alot of things cuz its very big inside,
and we got lost a couple of times.
then we had 粉圆fen yuan and 包心bao xin for lunch!
the bao xin is damn nice i tell you!
their like super big pearls,
like a $1 coin size,
then inside its filled with red beans! :)
then we headed off to raohe night market for dinner.
i wanted to see if i can get some cheap hello kitty stuffs there,
and i did!
i bought a couple of towels and some accesories!
then it was home sweet home. :)
hotel i mean.
by day 4,
we were like quiite free already,
cuz we already bought all the things we wanted.
so we woke up really late again,
and left for ding gua gua breakfast.
ding gua gua is a local fastfood,
sells almost same variety as kfc,
but the fries are made from pure sweet potato,
dan and i love it so much!
oh ya i forgot to add,
they even provide gloves for you to eat their chicken. :)
after that we went on to look for the v popular pineapple tart (feng li su).
the other time when we went,
it took us like 45mins to walk from the metro station(mrt),
so this time round we're smart enough to look out for other routes.
there were so many people,
and one look you'll know their singaporeans lor.
also because majority were wearing slippers.
and and and,
did i mention that taiwanese do not wear slippers???
they DO NOT.
and because i brought my papillio along,
i wore it almost everyday when shopping,
dan brought his crocs slippers,
and oz brought new urban male,
so basically we're like freaks there.
everyone will look at your shoes befre they even reach your face.
bought a few boxes of the tarts and went on to shop around nearby areas.
we went to the mei rong jie(beauty street),
recommended by Da S
its a wholesale street.
i didnt buy anything much,
merely a bottle that will produce foam for my toner.
happen to see a hello kitty wholesale shop,
and i bought like shitloads of hello kitty stuffs!
my best buy:
car cushion for kel's car!!!! wahaha!
the amount of hello kitty i bought!
actually its not alot,
but the things all very big.
then we went back to xi men ding for shopping again.
there were like plenty of shops,
so really lots of things for you to buy.
the poster cute anot??? :)
i went into this taiwan's "this fashion" shop,
then dan suggested that we go up to the 2nd floor to see some comics,
so we went,
kind of boring because i dont really read comics.
then he continue going up again,
and i saw the maid cafe!!!
its very quiet lah,
no one was inside,
and the waitress were busy chatting with one another
so another level up,
and i saw the cosplay area!!!!
very exciting cuz i they actually allowed you to try their costumes for free!
so if you like the costumes,
you can rent it for some shooting
either in-house or rent out.
so i tried 2 costumes,
the grey and red one.
surprisingly i can fit in lor!
then then then,
the young lady told me that i can come back again earlier tomorrow to have more fun,
cuz it was quite late when i was there
i told dan that i'll go back tomorrow for the shooting! :):):)
we decided that we'll be going for restocking on this day
cuz we bought many things to try over the past few days,
so for those things that are good,
we'll get it.
we headed to Sogo Departmental Store first,
to get some ayura stuffs
then went to shop around that area.
made a trip to their carrefour too.
you can actually find counter brands there.
so around lunch time,
we went to this bread shop at sehn wang hotel.
its a hotel opened by wang wang company. :)
the bread shop is the best rated in whole of taipei
so we bought like $30 worth of bread!
our hands were killing us,
so we headed back to the hotel.
then by 7,
we went to x.m.d again,
for my photoshoooooooot! :)
wah lao look at my leg muscle
took so long for me to upload!
for that night,
dan and i bought their le tou(toto)
hoping that we'll win the NT2000,0000.00!
but we didnt. :)
and and and,
we had lor bak png again,
for supper. :)
dan was waiting for this day to come,
because he came to taipei especially for bathing ape-
it was the reopening of the shop,
so we got up, had breakfast and rushed there to queue up.
i didnt know taiwanese love bape SO much
many wore 1 whole set- shirt,jeans,shoes,cap,jacket.
all from bape.
so many lah,
柯有伦ke you lun in white
zhang zhen yue was there too,
but didnt managed to get a shot of him.
after that we went to wu fen pu for some last minute shopping.
the bus came and fetched us to the airport.
then it was home sweet home. :)
our lugguage was 29kg overweight!!!!!
we did some rearrangement,
in the end it was only 9kg overweight,
but we had to pay like NT3000,
which was around $150.
when we reached changi airport,
we took like an hour to shop inside,
then when we went looking for our lugguage at the conveyor belt,
but there were none!
so at one corner, we saw like 100++ over luggages,
it belongs to our flight haha!!
most of the people from our flight were busy shopping,
so all our luggage nobody claim,
and they trashed it one side! :D
so it wasnt only us.
my zhan li pingsssssss!
i spent like $300 on my mama,
and another $300 on kel.
in the end i had to withdraw money over there.
for wen & bb
for MYSELF! :)
this thing is good lah!
you dip the stick into the liquid below,
then go put it through your ear holes and it'll clean it!
no more chou chou smell! :)
i only bought 1 cuz its quite ex.
1) the KATE gel eye liner is so damn freaking nice to use!!!!
i bought 2 bottles :)
2) RMK RMK RMK IS LOOOOOOVE. :)
