  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 :(
