  Taiwan Day 4
hellloooo guys ! been so caught up with school and stuff so i didn't have time to post anything :( hope your CNY holidays were good , mine was fun and i definitely put on a few kilograms T___T 

here's day 4 of my very back-tracked holiday !
on the fourth day of our trip we hired a private tour guide cum driver to take us out of Taipei , since it was recommended by my aunt who went to Taiwan a few months before we did .


he first took us to Yehliu Geopark , which was crazyyyyy gorgeous ...

ootd of the day !! the place was a lot more colder than Taipei city was , since it was closer to the sea . definitely didn't put on enough thick clothes !! was freezing to death :( 



the scene was seriously so pretty , i felt like i just stepped into a laptop wallpaper HAHAHA . sort of reminded me of the Twelve Apostles in Victoria too ! (refer to my Melbourne blog posts in 2011)

what so special about Yehliu Geopark , you may ask ? well apparently , due to the crashing of waves and the tidal movements , the rocks gradually changed their shapes over the years , resulting in some very unique and interesting shapes .



the most famous one is this rock called "The Queen's Head" , as it resembles a woman's head , hair tied in a bun with a slim neck . visitors weren't allowed to touch this rock in fear that the accumulated friction from everyone's touch would slowly make the rock fall apart , what more when the neck of the "Queen" is already so slim . in fact , it is estimated that the Queen's Head will fall off it's "neck" in a few years time .. therefore , the queue to see the Queen's Head is the longest of all .


see what i mean ? according to our tour guide , we were considered lucky , as the line would sometimes stretch way way further than this .. 



walked around the cape a little , apparently the holes in the ground (as seen in the pictures above) were formed because it used to be the sea bed , some many thousands of years ago .


trying to capture the image of the waves crashing onto the shores HAHA

i found my favourite rock !!! THE ICE CREAM ROCK EHEHHEHEHE


after that , we visited a little market outside Yehliu Geopark to buy some of their local products such as seaweed and salted fish .


soft serves for me and my sister !!! even in freezing cold weather , i refuse to give up ice cream AHHAHA . cookies and cream for me and mango for bby sis !

went to Jiufen after that for even more local delicacies ! what's Taiwan without food right ? nom nom nom

the streets of Jiufen were really curvy and narrow so it was pretty hard to get around but it was all worth it !




our destination : Jiufen Old Street . as you can see ..... it was super packed with tourists . the market was also super narrow despite having lots of little stores , so everyone had to push and squeeze just to get to the other end .

first stop was this fishball soup restaurant , which was the best - according to our tour guide . 

the interior of the restaurant tho .... it was filled with pictures of the owner in every corner HAHHAHAHHA


soup with a variety of fishballs and meatballs ! LOVE 


our tour guide also bought us pork meat buns to try !


alsoooo , red bean mochi ! 

our tour guide also made us try this traditional Taiwan dessert with Taro balls , red beans and whatnot . and when i say "made us try", i mean he literally bought it for us so it would be rude to reject it . but if you know me , i'm not one for Asian desserts so i didn't really enjoy it :S




borrowed my sister's scarf cos it was too cold and im a wimp T___T 




Jiufen's historical old cinema ! it was still playing black-and-white old movies when we went there , so cooooool


after the visit to Jiufen , we were super tired so we decided to go back to the hotel , which was around an hour plus' journey away . took a nap and then went to Ximending night market again at night HAHAHAH . seriously , visiting night markets became like a daily activity for me and my sis in Taipei :p

finally tried the ever so famous crepe ice-cream that night ! as mentioned above , i don't like Asian desserts but i'll make an exception to this one ! basically , it's yam ice cream topped with peanut crumbs and then wrapped in a thin crepe ! super yummy , loved it so much i wanted another but i was too full :(



and oh !!! MEET THE LOVE OF MY LIFE GUYS .


OK BYE .

  Taiwan Day 3
Happy CNY Eve guys !! I'm finally back in my own crib again (happy to be back) but unfortunately there's only 4 days of holidays left for me :( here's Taiwan Day 3 ! Yes , i'm aware that i have like 2 months of un-updated blog posts to catch up on .. but A Levels is my priority , as academics always are , so i hope you guys understand :/ i'm sorry !!


Day 3 OOTD ! looking like a fatshit lol 



went to the Miniatures Museum of Taiwan because my sister is a big fan of mini stuff and she wanted to go there 



greeting you at the entrance of the museum is an array of Barbies ! my favourite back as a kid :P


lots of creepy-looking dolls


traditional dolls such as the Nutcracker too !








miniature houses and buildings , love how everything is so finely detailed , from the mini chandeliers to the teapots in the kitchen .. so intricate and pretty !



my hand in comparison .... the furniture is soooo freaking tiny omg


blurry photo in the museum heh





some movie adaptations : Phantom of the Opera , Cinderella and Pinocchio 


can this be my room , except 20 times bigger :((((


i wouldn't mind this one either :'((((



my favourite : CAKES AND DESSERTS !! look at how these miniature artists put in so much effort just to complete the decorations on the cakes ... talk about patience !






x

left the museum after that and decided to walk around the area . we were pretty hungry so we decided to stop by a little street shop for some traditional Taiwanese food :)



Rice with minced meat for me and the exact same thing in noodles version for my sister



grabbed a herbal tea egg from 7-Eleven whilst my sister got herself a cheesecake flavoured ice-cream  (no pic) , ahh i wish 7-Eleven in Malaysia served hot streets food as well :( 


after that , we decided to take the subway and head over to Taipower Station for tea , because what else is there to do in Taiwan except eat ? HAHAHAH




teatime at this little restaurant called Streams in the Desert ! found out about it since they advertised their teatime promotion in a leaflet . ambience was pretty good , there was a live pianist playing music :)





coffee and cakes . coffee was not bad but the cakes and pastries were nothing to rave about , meh :/ disappointed .

went back to the hotel for a quick nap and shower after that and went out again at night .
outfit of the night :) went to Shihlin Night Market again AHHAHAHA because my mom had no idea that me and my sis went there ourselves the night before :p



finally got to try the famous "Hot Star" fried XXL chicken !!!!!!11!1! the line was crazyyyy long , had to line up for at least 5 mins just to taste this omg



the amount of people craving for fried chicken ^ 




some selfies while queueing up



yay cravings fulfilled ! no chilli powder for me because i'm a noob HAHA . my verdict ? definitely tastes better and fresher than the Shihlin fried chicken available in M'sia ahahah


deek ice-creams ? whoops .


shopped around a little bit more then went back to sleep again because my family loves sleeping AHAHAH . and that's pretty much sums up my third day in Taipei ! see you guys soon , love you x
