alright,here goes!

day 1: 310807

here's me and mum in the background arriving at taoyuan international airport after a close to 4hr flight from singapore. by then we reach it was like dark cos taiwan apparantly has short days and longer nights. fyi,the in-flight meal was :/ i had a hard time swallowing the erh... noodles. oh and i fell asleep from watching shrek 3 cos i spent the night b4 packing and getting too hyped up over the trip hahaha.

we stayed at royal castle hotel along chengdu rd. not some 5-star hotel la,we not that rich. well,it was qt cosy la and this is the room for the next 10 days! :D

xi men ding. the equivalent of orchard rd to taipei youths. of cos it's cheaper then town la but still,this view is damn nice cos it's FOREVER lit up. our hotel was located within this area so u can pretty guess where most of my cash went la huh haha.

tamagoya house. it's this themed restaurant which serves dan bao fan. it's like rice wrapped in omelette yeah and we did go in to eat one of the nights la but no pics tho. i was lazy haha.

we did spend like the remaining time ard 8-ish till 11pm shopping ard xi men ding la and pretty much all the food outlets were closed except for...YOSHINOYA! haha budget sia. anw taiwan's yoshi is super huge set la! take the above meal,it cost me like...$5SGD? yeah it was that worth the money. oh and no salmon/ebi there as well. but they had pork la.

day 2: 010907

breakfasted at dunkin donuts then it's damn nice cos there was this place for customers to eat above the entrance.

another view of the cafe.

we went to breeze centre which had kinokuniya at the upper level so all 4 of us(mum,sH and her aunt,myself went nuts buying things there haha). mum went crazy over comics,sH,her aunt and I over mags + pictorial books. kinda got lost along the way la so we went into this 7-11 shop and asked where breeze centre was the person was like "it's next door(displays a diao face)". i was so pai seh can haha. yeah so after that went to SOGO zhongxiao. there was 3 SOGO dept stores in taipei itself. whole taiwan got approx more than 10 stores and the funniest thing was all the 3 taipei ones where located in the same area.
