Taiwan Travelogue 101 - 台北

I'm finally at my last (really the last one) entry for my Taipei trip! It really took me a while to gather all these things up but i am glad that everything is gonna end with this post! I didn't visited a lot of places during Taipei so i'm just gonna post about the places i went and you guys can navigate around ok! :D

Reached Taipei at around evening time and checked into our hotel. Kingshi Hotel. Its a relatively good one, but i saw bad reviews on the internet about bed bugs or whatsnot. BUT, we got the VIP rooms so maybe the standard would be better? So yeah.

First picture of the day with my sister!


Took some pictures around my hotel and Taipei reminds me of Hong Kong, in a sense.



Went to a nearby cafe to eat and they have really cute waiters here /drools. & they are so polite and nice and it makes me so shy >///< but still need to stare HAHAHAH


Some food. HAHA, didn't order much because they originally wanted to eat somewhere else and just ordered for the kids. But it kept raining so ...




Ximending

Went to Ximending that day and saw this dog. SO CUTEEEEE. Didn't take much pictures because i felt that Ximending is pretty boring during the "winter" season. Nothing much to shop and things gets a little pricey. But overall not a bad shopping experience

/secretly whisper/ go with parents .. =0= HAHA



My favourite buy from Ximending! Its custom made and they rushed the piece out for me. Very nice right?!?!? Its S$38 and the shop assistant is a chiobu so go and buy from them! My friends though its a little pricey, but there's practically nothing there to buy (no clothes 'cuz of the bad season) and i am so into Alice in wonderland that period of time so i just got it. 

Still using it and loving it <3



Taipei 101

Went to Taipei 101 and it was pretty cool to look at Taiwan from the top as a whole. Ok maybe just Taipei, but it was still pretty hazy so it gets a little sian.


Buying tickets to get to the place.





My #OOTD hahha





Wufenpu

Went to Wufenpu with Xinni because we happen to be over at Taipei on the same dates! Same flight back some-more, talk about coincidence. 


Got this crepe and its super nice!! & the guy selling it is like those hot-blooded ojisan and LOL, so idk leh, manly charisma HAHA. & the crepes damn nice and he is damn polite also :D



This Xinni say don't wanna buy then in the end she tasted it and went "waa nice nice" HAHA. 
P.S/ Two lao tiko behind her byo-ing Xinni. Tsk tsk.

When we were waiting for the crepes, they were speaking in English and fake the accent so i was like "LOL WTF"


Heading back to Ximending! In case you wonder, yeap i snipped off my fringe when i was in Taipei because i can't stand how oily and weird-shaped it had become. Lol. NTD100 only! Super cheap and good skills. Leave it to the Taiwanese for beauty tricks man.







Celebrated my sister's birthday over at Taipei too! :D 
The cake damn cute right haha!


She look damn happy 8D


So yeap, marks the end of this series! I'm sorry it took so long, and the contact details took a while to be churned out too. So i would leave all the prices and the hotels that i stayed in, as well as the contact details of the driver and his prices :)


Loots from Taiwan :)

I booked everything under Agoda because i found it easier to have the booking ID and guarantee from Agoda?


Ok fuck, i cant remember the exact pricing of the driver, but i know that he charge us according to trips and not according to the number of people. It was a total of NTD15,000 for 9 people - 6 adults and 3 kids and he drove us around for 6 days? 

His number is +886 977-066-769 and his surname is 宋

Ok lah, he damn good and i went to check around, some drivers charge us like NTD10,000 for one person like wtf? Fuck you seriously. We renting your car or we buying your car sia zzz. 

So just get this driver, and he damn nice also LOL! 
Like some ah gong and will talk to you ahahha.

Ok, i hope all these would be useful to anyone visiting Taipei! & Special thanks to Deborah and her friend for the itinerary and the driver contacts! :) Love ya.
