Taiwan Day 2 - Cont'd

Thursday, December 29, 2011

We reached Wufenpu 五分埔 late afternoon, Taipei's biggest wholesale clothing market and started our shopping spree. It is fashion paradise - they follow the latest fashion trends and prices are cheap! If not for the rainy weather, the whole shopping experience would be much much nicer.

Clothes are stacked in bulk and sorted by basket.

While I was happily shopping, DH and kids were happily eating along the way. We really like the fried chicken (NT50) and bought a few packets. Their fried chicken is crunchy and aromatic and with the steamy weather, it just gave the exra oomph feeling! And not forgetting the bubble teas to go along. Extra hands were used to hold umbrella and pushing pram, so no hand to take pictures of food. We shopped for a good whole 3 hours (definitely not enough!!!!) and made our way to our next shopping pit stop - The Raohe Street Night Market, one of the oldest night markets in Taiwan.

On the way there, we spotted a Camel, a HUGE and gentle camel near the MRT station. Am surprised to see a Camel in the city and the kids did lots of posing with it.

We spent another good 2hrs or so shopping and eating at the night market before we made our way back to hotel @ Ximengding.

And guess what? After settling into the hotel and leaving the kids with my mum. A few of us, Gluttons, went out again to find the famous Ah Zhong Mian Xian for supper. We liked it! But since their version does not include oysters it may be a disappointment to those oysters lovers.

While we were eating, we spotted this and it reminds me of the time I used to sling Seth out often. Sooooo cute!

Koi Tea and Gong Cha infamously spread the bubble tea wind across Sg and they were recognised as tea from Taiwan. Yet throughout the whole trip, we never see Koi nor Gong Cha. We tried different brands of bubble tea though.

After vermicelli, we walked along the streets of Ximending and couldn't resist the fragrant from chicken chop again and ended up getting few more packets. SINFUL.

Till tomorrow.
