taiwan day 1 – taipei . ximending . oven coffee . shida night market

Yes, we have left Seoul and we’re back in Taipei!
Seoul is great but food wise is nothing very amazing to me, that’s my opinion la. They are crazy with cheesy stuff, not me. I don’t like spicy stuff too and their chilli is the same on every single thing. Fried chicken is yummy and can hardly go wrong. Most of their food is starchy; very high in carbs and it’s difficult to get a balanced diet.

Shopping is great; the clothes, skincare… you’ll get it.
The thing about skincare – it’s everywhere. After visiting Korea, I don’t feel so bad about my skin anymore. I feel that most of the girls in Korea have low self-esteem shown on all of their faces. Their makeup is so thick until it can be quite scary; face very white but the body is of a darker shade, almost like wearing a mask. It’s obvious that they are not comfortable in their own skin. It’s sad because they are trying to be somebody that they are not. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ


Damn dayima. Why? Why do you have to come now?
That also explains my swollen face. ๐Ÿ’ฃ


Our hotel room!

Got bathtub but cannot use. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

We got nice view from here but too bad Taipei 101 will no longer have fireworks for New Year countdown.

Fill up our hungry stomachs with cakes we got from Paris Baguette first.


Oyster omelette, carrot cake and iced tea. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Then it’s time for some grilled mochi. I always ask for ้†้†็…ง็ƒง (I think it’s teriyaki)

Such a simple and yummy thing.


Seriously… this is the first time I’ve seen the Ximending red house, even though it’s just opposite.

The guys wants some coffee and we ended up here at Oven Coffee. There was another which he wants to try but they were fully booked, it’s called Men-Cady.

Thanks ๅคงๅงจๅฆˆ for making me swell.

By the way, I got more Sylvannian Family capsule toys! Yay!

Can’t remember very well but I think I ordered a hot orange milk tea, sort of. It was good.

And a marshmallow waffle! I did expect them to roast the marshmallow, a bit sad when I saw this. The marshmallow did become soft and it was nice, just that it will be even better if the marshmallow was roasted. ๐Ÿ˜ณ


Shida Night Market
Shida is one of my favourite places to shop at. Things here may not be the cheapest but you can find unique designs. And there are lots of good street food here.

Must buy ็”Ÿ็…ŽๅŒ… when at Shida Night Market!

Woohoo! My must-have every time I’m in Taiwan! Even though I have a huge ulcer in my mouth and I can only eat in small little bites, I will still eat you all. ๐Ÿ˜

Time to cool my heaty body with bittergourd juice

Nice sausage stall, not too sweet and can taste the meaty juices. ๐Ÿ‘


Apparently this is very good, the queue is very long.

Tadaa. Actually quite close to blackball leh, so don’t ask me to compare.
