TAIPEI Trip 10 Sept til 15 Sept 06 : Day 3
hehe sorry guys for the delay. Here is my Day 3 schedule in Taipei as promised!...
As usual, we woke up at around 9 something and left the hotel at 10..We proceeded to DingTaiFeng 鼎泰丰 to try out the infamous Xiao Long Bao there! We went to the First Ever shop..They have branches in Singapore and HongKong too..but according to my sister, the taipei shop is the best among all!
The Infamous Xiao Long Bao..actually my opinion is that its quite good, but i think the Chinese restaurant in JW Marriot have the same standard as the Xiao Long Bao here..maybe its not hot enough for me
The clear chicken soup...this chicken soup is quite good! Should order this when you are there, recommended by my sister's boss
The Bah Chang..the rice is very soft...nice too!
After DingTaiFeng, we went to visit the C.K.S memorial Hall... As it is along the way to our next destionation, WuFenPu..a famous shopping district!
Weather isn' t very good..
We saw some of the demonstrators against the Taiwan President Chen Shui Bian there, all wearing red colour t shirt.
The LRT station is very nice..theres painting along the corridor...why can't our LRT station be like that? i wonder..
We got to Wu Fen Pu at around 12pm..its still early and the shop doesnt open til its around 1pm so what else can we do? EAT again! We saw this shop selling 鲁肉饭 so we proceeded to having our lunch before we start our shopping spree!!! hehe...Saw many of the branches already in Taipei, so we decided to give it a try!
Name of the shop
This pork stick is heavenly..i realised that we are so deprived of pork in Malaysia!
After curing our stomach, its almost time! We go ahead with our crazy shopping trip at 1pm! WuFenPu is actually a wholesaler shopping districts, that is why the stuff here is really CHEAP! But please don't come on Monday because those shopkeepers will come on Monday to get their supply and the shops will not entertaint individual customers on Monday. The clothes there are mostly Korean/Japanese style, i wanted to buy some working clothes but did not manage to find it there.
After walking few hours, we decided to take a rest and have a drink ...its quite hard to find a cafe here..all shops are selling clothes or accessories..took us quite a while...
Enjoying the drinks..
local food again..甜不辣
We were there til about 7pm i think...so exhausted okay!!!haha...but felt satisfied lah..
We decided to go back and have dinner at Xi Meng Ding as our hotel is there as well...need to put down the stuff that we bought...
And........We had Mcdonald's for dinner....hehe...
Wang Li Hom..!yummy! wahaha...shh..my sis will kill me!
Special burger there!..its something like Rice burger.. chicken one is better than the prawn one..
How it looks inside...
After dinner, we walked around xiMengDing.. (YET AGAIN)..ask my baby sis! We were so tired..went back to the hotel at around 9something....
TO BE CONTINUED - Second Last Day ! :(
