Time sure flies when you’re having fun. It’s the last day of our trip and we usually will only shop for food or snacks on the last day. Our first stop is 佳德糕餅 Chia Te Bakery @ Songshan District in Taipei. While walking nearby our hotel, we found this restaurant 三味香 that serves delicious homemade noodles, dumplings and steamed buns. We ordered a variety of dishes to try. There’s preserved century egg, homemade noodles...

Day 4 Taiwan Trip : 永和豆漿大王, 國家戲劇院, 瓦城泰國料理, 通化夜市, 西門町夜市, 阿宗麵線

The one thing that I really wanna try during this Taiwan trip is the traditional Taiwanese breakfast. In Malaysia we have Nasi Lemak, Roti Canai, Wan Tan Mee, Roti Kaya Toast for breakfast right?

We went for the latter coz there’s a...

Taiwan Trip Day 3 : SOGO, Godiva Specialty Store, Taipei 101 & 鼎泰豐 Din Tai Fung

It was kinda sad that we had to change our Taiwan Trip itinerary due to typhoon. Poor Wifey coz she planned the whole itinerary but when the news of typhoon came, we had to change our plan and just stay indoor to avoid the heavy rain and strong wind. SOGO is one of the famous shopping malls in Taipei and it’s a must go place to shop. They have all the luxury brands here, so make sure you bring along enough cash. I realized that...

Eating Around Ximending (西門町) – What to eat in Ximending?

Ximending (西門町) is known as the “Harajaku” or “Shibuya” of Taipei (台北). This area is one of the most popular tourist spots in Taipei with endless choices for shopping, food and entertainment.
