Look who we found yesterday! Ghibli exhibit makes me want to watch Totoro again! (: (at 香港文化博物館 Hong Kong Heritage Museum)
The view I fall asleep to every night! Wish I could keep it foreverr but there’s never a single star in sight. I never thought I would ever get to a place where stars blanketed across a pitch black canvas would require great effort. Didn’t think I would mind so much, oh but I do. Too bad I can’t have it all.
Who killed the Mango?? The mangoes are so good in Tai Tung that we had to get some for “dessert” at the hotel after the night market 🐽 #oneofmany #taiwanese #sweetlife #anythingbutabutterknife
TaoYuan is a city near Taipei where the airport is located. Our first day was a free day so we took the earliest flight out from HKG. After a mix up with going to the wrong hotel, we finally settled in and set out on our way. We found a really good beef noodle place just right around the corner from our hotel. Super satisfied, we went on a search for dessert to find Bee & Honey. They have different types of soft serves with different toppings, the most famous being soft serve with honey drizzled on top in a cone. After some more exploring in shops and stands, we quenched our thirst with fresh watermelon juice at a corner fruit juice stand. After an afternoon nap, we started our journey to the famous Taiwanese night markets. Of course, after we all got our choice of milktea. The walk was long but a good experience because we walked through grocery markets and various restaurants and 85 degree bakery! But it was probably one of the crappier bakeries we came across.
It started to rain on and off when we got to the night market. But that was okay because there’s canopies everywhere and it happened to rain when we were eating under a canopy. The two winners of the night were the Takoyaki and strawberry waffle!
A lot of times, when we take pictures of food, it happens to just look good and be just mediocre after the first few bites especially after it cools down. But that DOESN’T happen in Hong Kong and surely not Taiwan! I watched them make the Takoyaki and it made it that much more satisfying. There are several ingredients they throw into the Takoyaki and they made it perfectly. Crispy on the outside and the inside had the texture of melted cheese. I was hesitant on the Strawberry waffle but I got one anyway. Boy am I glad I did! Perfect on the outside and still nice and soft on the inside. It was so good, we went back for more.
Probably one of the most relaxing yet tiring day on this trip. This was my first nap on the trip! And how can you not sleep well with the Taiwan lanterns right above you just like that. I love our hotel room (:
They weren’t kidding about Taiwanese good eats !! #underfivebucks #happypig #nightmarket (at 桃园夜市 Taoyuan Night Market)

The MTR has become a routine and running between platforms has already become an olympic sport. I have already renewed my Octopus Card twice and fallen asleep on the MTR once. The quietest MTR station has been the one we call home at Dai Wor Hou. The biggest MTR station so far is the Tsim Sha Tsui one where exits go all the way up to P. The craziest line to get into the MTR station is Mong Kok. The furthest MTR station we have gone so far is Tuen Mun.
