Sorry about this I know I’m very late. Trying to clear my taiwan trip before my bali and japan trip but I think it’s quite impossible so let me show you my day 3 afternoon photos first!
After leaving our minsu from jiufen, we took a bus to Ruifang station.
Want to read my previous posts on taiwan? Go to our explore series!
Ask hubby to stand there and strike a pose so that I can have more pics of him. But he gave me a ‘i dun really care or i just wanna act cool’ look. lol!
fancy prints on the trains!
vending machines at the platform. Had coffee as usual!
I have no idea how to translate this to english but yah. a can of kopi.
actually took tons of photos of this coffee addict but I think it’s better not to post. HAHA.
First thing first we need to check in and put down our luggage and bags. So we trained all the way to Taipei Main Station to look for our hotel! I realized taiwanese are really good at talking, we got stopped by a taiwanese girl on the way to our hotel and all the while for 45minutes she’s trying to get us to buy beauty products from her. I didn’t get anything by the way.
Soon we arrived at our hotel for the night which is CityInn Hotel! Ours is at Taipei station Branch I.
No. 7, Huaining St, Zhongzheng District, Taipei City, Taiwan 100
I know it is very orangey here but the rooms were okay haha. that i will show in the next taiwan travel post!
Simon was looking for photography films, so we went to Hankou street to look for his films. This is the place where all the photographers come to get their stuffs?
hongkong feel strong?
Really neat. oddly satisfying to see this. haha.
crossing the road and spot this cute girl! can’t help but to take a pic of her. 😀
and all the camera brands here! For the past 6years Simon has changed his camera from panasonic to pentax to canon to sony. Always changing.. always..
I’m not sure if the films there are cheaper anot but after getting like 2boxes of the kodak portra films, we walked back and saw this cute uncle selling red bean pancakes 红豆饼!
He also sells custard pancakes!
bought one custard and one red bean pancake from him!
Crispy on the outside ..
and super yummy red beans inside! I hope the uncle will be there forever because the next time I go back I want to have this pancake again!
While we were enjoying our pancakes, we saw this weird guy stretching his legs so I thought I should take a photo of him lol.
another shot of the red bean again for you. :p didn’t post the custard one because me no like nai you!
After that we just walked around, and take more pictures of the surroundings.
next we went back to the Underground mall at the taipei main station and got us a 蔥抓餅!
this is Simon’s favourite snack! It’s quite fun looking at them making the spring onion pancakes. I also love this snack because it’s fluffy and yummy!
can’t remember if we got the beef with egg or pork with egg but it was super shiok!
After this we went to Taipei 101!
mandatory shot! Initial plan was to go to starbucks at Taipei 101 but the security guard informed us that we need to have a reservation there. We wasn’t aware of this (didn’t research enough) and end up ordering a 滷肉飯 meal to share at the food court.
When you are in overseas, everything just taste better.
then we finally hop on to Agnes B Cafe!
ordered a dessert, rose latte and flat white.
the rose latte was pretty standard but i love the cake!
Mr Simon looks kinda happy with his flat white BUT i remembered it wasn’t that good. don’t know what is he trying to figure out also..
but he still finish it. lol!
Alright I am ending the post here and share more about the hotel we stayed, Ximending and the food we ate over there in the next travel related post. I missed cold weather and mountains! Can’t wait for my cooling Australia trip!
Till the next post then! Add me on snapchat – claireaudreylim! 😀
