Taipei 2nd/3rd Dec ,Day 5 and 6

DSC04545

 

 

It’s our Day 5 there,picture taken from Hope hotel.A great hotel for our 7 nights stay.This christmas tree was so interesting that Ayden will make his own way from the hotel room to have a “feel” of it.Adelle being the oldest will tend to follow Ayden to be sure that he don’t run too far away.

 

So,let me show you guys what are the food we will be eating and where the places we had visited.One of it is  the wholesale market at Wu Fen Pu!

And so,we went over to Xi Men Ding for some quick brunch before heading out for the day.Look at this,the breakfast from JSP was so great that we will come back for the 2nd time after trying them in Feb this year.And so,we wanna eat this oyster mee sua once again as it’s so popular especially among Singaporean.

 

Look at the big quanity of bubble tea from 50!

Really a great recommendation for bubble tea which the husband had been searching high and low for it till we finally found it.And the worst thing was that,there was already a stall sitting nearby our hotel!!:(

And we finally came to Mr J restaurant and it’s a must for us to come by and give it a try.Most importantly,the food over there DID NOT fail us!I quite like the food served and almost all the dishes tasted yummy.Oh not forgetting the portion was big as well!

All right before we set off for the day trip on Day 6,we had a great carrot cake for breakfast.This store is located just below our hotel and it’s so convient that we can just grab a few packets and eat it in the hotel!

Here we are at Xin Bei Tou once again after 5years.When we came in Feb,we didn’t drop by here as there’s nothing much yet.This time we feel perhaps we can come by to see if there’s any more changes,look like there is not much of a change as well.

DSC04326

 

 

We visited a few places on Day 3 and Day 4.Not to forget,day 2 and day 3,we booked a taxi and brings us to a couple of places.One of the place outside Taipei city was Xin Zhu where Lavender Cottage is located at.

It was so great that I greatly feel that this trip worth the best as compare to the previous one which we came in Feb.We covered like quite a couple of places.Not forgetting that the kids and ourselves ate more and buys more this time round.

Have a look at these pictures!

Just before we set off on Day 3 for the 12 hrs day trip(booked a taxi),we decided to have a great breakfast on those food stall found just on the ground level of our hotel.It’s amazing on how tasty these food can get!All right this is one of the reason why I love to go Taiwan.Not only great for shopping,sight seeing ,I love their cheap ,tasty yet big portion of food.

 

Let me show you the pictures of places which we went to  for day 3 when we go by a taxi.

We went to this Green world farm on Day 3.Yes By booking a taxi to go around places that is harder to go without a car.This place is a mixture of things which we will see like farm animals,cactas,butterfly,birds etc.Is like a mixture of our Bird Park and Zoo.Not a very huge place though but can get to see everything there.A pity,we can’t find the chance to cover everything there except a few of it.

 

Saw these food?!It’s Hakka food which the Taxi driver strongly recommended.It’s so tasty that even till now I’m still thinking about it.Something which we definetly can’t taste it in Singapore.

Our intention is to pluck strawberries and tomatoes.A pity,the kids were not able to pluck strawberries and tomatoes.Because the farm which we went,all the tomatoes were plucked by the earlier batch of people.Morever the taxi driver didn’t bring us to another farm again.So..:(

No doubt so,they still get to see the farms of strawberries and tomatoes.And good thing was that the kids get to pluck strawberries when we came in Feb.Still not as bad.

 

 

 

DSC04409

 

 

This is our next stop after the farms.Lavender cottage!
I almost don’t wanna leave the cottage after an hour plus there because it’s so cozy yet beautiful that phototaking there was great and not forgetting the Lavender stuff they sell there.

Here are the pictures of us at Lavender cottage!The children and ourselves are pretty much enjoyed at this cozy yet beautiful place in Taiwan.It’s so loveable that we don’t bear to leave this place unless needed.There are lots of nice view for photo taking,not only that the tasty lavender and rose ice cream made everything wonderful!

 

 

It’s something that we had never ever get to try it in Singapore.Great that we decided to give Lavender cottage a visit so as to give all of us a great exposure!

 

 

 

DSC04482

 

Day 4,We are on our way.No taxi like the past 2 days.So we will be taking their MRT from day 4 till day 7.

Today we went to MaoKong station whereby that’s where we will be taking their cable car to the top of the hill.It was so high that I’m the only one who is so worried about it.Adelle feels all right for a start.It’s only when she sees my worried look,then only she get frighten over.As for Ayden,perfectly fine!

This is marvelous!Till now I’m missing this “Lu Rou Fan” from Farmosa Zhang!It’s so tasty that I can’t help having more of it and missing it so much that I make it a point to return for this if possible.

 

 

And so,we ended Day 3 and Day 4 with all the marvelous food on our own!

-薰衣草森林
-Green World Ecological Farm
-Tomatoes and Strawberries farm.

Taipei 28th,29th Nov Day 1 & 2

DSC04136

 

Hi guys,I’m back!
Here comes our 8D7N Taipei trip!
Let me do a brief review for this trip.It’s fun yet fulfilling whereby We spent 1.5k in food and buying of things for ourselves and for others yet we spent like the same amount in Feb as well yet this current one is much more great as it’s for 8days wheres the one in Feb is only for 5 days.

Let me share some of the pictures here and get started !

And it seems that the children are so excited when comes to taking of aircraft.I’ve woke them up at 3am,they could get up easily without much fuss.Upon reaching the Airport,the children are all excited.We are taking Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong and transit from there to Taipei.Approx time to reach TaoYuan International Airport will be about 3pm in the afternoon on the 28th Nov.

Spot these?All right,thats the adult’s and kid’s meal onboard the aircraft.We will have a “heavier” meal from Singapore to Hongkong .So the portion was kinda big as I can’t seem to finish the food given.And of course,the children are truly enjoying themselves for this trip whereby they really eat and watch the mini TV in front of them.It’s so enjoying that I can’t help snapping more pictures of them eating.

And so,here’s the adult’s and kid’s meal from Hong Kong to Taipei.A simple snack.We had been eating and eating and EATING throughout the whole journey from SG to Taipei.And this is part of the reason why Adelle is so excited and kept saying that other than CX,she don’t even wanna take other airlines!!!*rolling eyes*

And we have some activities for the kids to mingle with beside the headphone provided and TV as well.The only thing was that Ayden refused to sit down with his seat belt bucked which I have to get another safetly belt from the air stewardess to attach it to my seat belt.Thankfully Ayden is less than 3yrs old,if he is more than that,I’m afraid he gotta sit on his seat with seat belt on.

All right,here’s the pictures to our 7nights stay in this hotel.It’s Hope hotel located at Taipei main station.The feedback is great!!It’s so much better compared to Pig home(also located at Taipei main station) whom we spend 4 nights staying during the time we came in Feb.

Is like we will use Taipei underground mall ,exit from Z8,walk like 2mins and it’s the entrance of our hotel!Marvelous isn’t it?I bet we will be coming back to this hotel again if we were to go Taipei again next year.The location was so great that at the ground level of this hotel are all those stall that sells various type of food.Cross over to the mini T junction are also stalls that sell food or even shops that sell any items we are looking for.One of the shop that sells bento accessories just like our Singapore Japan Home.Towards another lane they have a whole row of shops that sell bubble tea!

It’s like the 2nd rainbow hotel that is in Xi Men Ding area.But,I’ll very much preferred this Hope Hotel .:)
