For the first time in foreverrrrr… my hair looks pretty decent. Cold weather (10 deg) is great for my hair but definitely not for my skin.
Currently experiencing the worst break out ever. Pimples and dry skin flakes, please leave me alone!

image

A wild giraffe appeared! 

image

My ostrich friend and I says HELLO! 

image

Power of Saviors lighted art mural/panel on the MRT.

AHH <3 Spent at least 3 minutes just ogling at this wall. The artist in me is pleased. 

image

THOSE SKETCHES. Oh look, it’s Trissey! Hehehe.

image

Taipei 101. 

image

image

Family tourist-y shot with Din Tai Fongs xiao long bao mascot.

Truffle xiao long bao. SO. GOOD. Definitely a must try!

Souvenir’s, anyone?

image

Didn’t see Ladurée however, this macaron tower inside Taipei 101 makes up for it. Nom!

Warning: Dessert cuteness overload.

image

image

Prettiest cupcake I have ever seen.

image

Do you wanna build a snowman? Macaron hat, too cute!

Would you stab this bear cake with a fork? I wouldn’t! :(

image

Inside Taipei 101. First 7 floors (?) are mostly high-end/designer shops. Entrance fee required if you want to go up till the 101st floor. 

image

image

Hello Kitty x Giordano collection. So sad I wasn’t able to drop by the Hello Kitty Cafe in Da-an district :(

Family mart (also in Taipei 101 G/F)

image

MINE SHINE! 3 flavors in Taiwan~ I feel so cheated. Blue variant is really, really good. You can buy from 7-11 in the Philippines for P 42.

image

Try all the beverages! Giant Yakult <3

image

Chocolate milk (L) which is super good and Bubble Milk Tea (R) which tastes awful!

***

After shopping (mostly just window shopping) at Taipei 101, we decided to check out the mall just across it.

image

image

COMEBUY DRINKS. It is calling you.

Stalker shot. Most Taiwanese girls dress up really well; layering at its finest!

Unique bag design.

image

/grabby hands.

image

image

image

Miffy hi-cut sneakers is haunting me. I saw it in Hong Kong too :))

WOWZAH.

Happy new year everyone!

Taiwan Travel Photo Diary • December 2013 • Part 1

42 notes Reblog Comments

Third time in Taiwan and I still love this country to bits! (But still no Chinese speaking skills, hehe) I spent a few months in Taiwan last 2004 & 2009 for study tours so this country has a very special place in my heart. 

image

Taoyuan Airport. 

image

Christmas decorations were still everywhere since we visited December 26-30, 2013. 

image

Ichigo overload c/o my dad’s acquaintance, Angel. Made me miss Tricia though :( Her family was supposed to be in Taiwan for vacation on the exact same date/s as we were. Too bad their flight was moved one week after ours. 

image

First stop for the night, Jian Tan station. Right across it is the Shi Lin night market. 

image

image

Food…food everywhere. 

image

For those who are planning to visit Taiwan, you HAVE TO try the famous Chi Pai (Fried Chicken) — street food found in Shi Lin but also in other night markets. If you can tolerate the smell, you should also try stinky tofu — which I heard is super good (but smells like the sewer, eeek). I particularly love the cold almond tea drink and the caramel coated strawberries. 

image

Winter clothes because of the cold front. 

image

image

image

For the Chinese New Year :D 

***

The following shots were all taken in Ximending Night Market. 
* Ximending station by MRT image

image

Giant Jake.

image

Adventure time! Spot Finn :D

image

This doggy is in winter attire too.

image

I wanted to bring this cutie home :(

image

Thank goodness I brought an umbrella. 

image

image

Can you spot the boobie slippers? HEHEHE. 

image

Bought these Disney Princess socks. Easily my favorite purchase from this trip. Too bad they didn’t have the others :(

image

This magazine store sells Japanese magazines as well as eMooks. Super updated~ they even had VIVI February issue already!

image

Arashi restaurant (*cue in Arashi music) near the magazine store.

Really, really good ramen.

Anna Sui x Minnie Mouse collection <3 I’m getting better at taking ninja store display shots. hehe.

image

Wiring lvl : GOD SKILLS !

image

image

Taeyeon! My forever SNSD bias <3 

image

With my cousins~! (they love to photobomb, rrr)

Last stop for the night : Shinjuku Plaza
They have Japanese and Korean brands but bring cash if you’re planning to drop by and shop since most stores do not accept credit card. You might also want to drop by earlier (Around 6pm since the shops close early — around 9pm)

image

I took so many photos I have to post 3 separate blog entries, mehehe. Part 2 coming up! :)

image

Kirin Disney milk tea (7-11) and Chachago (Ximending) to end this entry.

Hope you enjoyed my photos :D

So, so cold. Worst break out with matching dry & flaky skin. Yikes! Any product recommendations to remedy this? buhuhu.
