My first flight in 25 years!
Actually 2 flights; first to Hong Kong, then transit to Taiwan.
I was super excited to know that I'm 25500 feet above.
Look what I had for lunch, my first meal in the air!
The bus ride to Taipei Main Station was not very pleasant- the bus stinks with cigarette odour & insects. I will try Feigou if I have the chance.
Except for the use of ez-link, taking MRT in Taipei is somewhat similar to the MRT system back in Singapore. Unlike Singapore though, they have washrooms & dustbins within the MRT platforms & tunnels. And they are extremely clean!
The very first place I visited was Shilin Night Market to meet up with Miko(a taiwanese friend of mine). And boy was I lucky, We bump into the Mayor of Taipei!
See the number of video cameras behind us. HOHOHO. I suppose Jackie & I are going to be in EVERY taiwan news in the background!
Miko treated us to so much good food & bargains. In addition, her bargain skills were superb! I bought a whole bag of loot yet saving up to a few thousand NT! *satisfied laughter*
Y.E.S! I totally agree!
