TIME FOR TAIWAN : THINGS TO DO IN TAIPEI

What will you do if you have 2 full days in Taipei?
For natural lover, I would choose for natural trails. For shopaholic this place is also a heaven for people like you. For foodies lover....well...eat all you can !

Somehow, I end up booked myself at Tamsui area. Which is really a good place to stay and get all above I mentioned. Lucky me!


Tamsui

Tamsui is about 45 minutes MRT ride from Main Station. I stayed near by the sea and totally enjoyed the beautiful sunset there. I never miss the peaceful morning and evening walk by the sea there.

While you in Tamsui don't forget to take ferry cross to Bali and visit the Fisherman's Wharf there.If you lazy to walk around , you can also ride on R26 bus  and this bus will take you to many town's main tourist sites.

If you happen to be here during public holiday or weekend, this place will flocked by many local.


You will never go hungry in Taiwan. Stroll around the old street in Tamsui to get great bargain of items made in Taiwan and also enjoy delicious street food.


Yamingshan National Park

I was contemplating between Elephant Hills or Yamingshan National Park and at the end choose this place.

Since I stayed at Tamsui area so going to this place is not that far at all. I just need to stop at Jiantan Station and then take small bus no. S15. Just pay NTD15 which I paid with Easycard.

After 2 hours hiking up I reach to the top and get to enjoy totally awesome view.  It is a flat land on top the part and in fact it is a lava terrace here. I follow Qingtiangang trail. Along the way met this Taiwan Auntie who is 89 years old. WTH! That Auntie get 2 thumbs and 2 toes up from me. She hiked the hill steadily. Damn!!! me and my weak knee can't lose to hers. Jia You!

You can visit Shinlin night market after get down from Yamingshan Park. Just head toward Exit 1 at  Jiantan Station.


Maokong Gondola

I visited this place specifically to experience the ride of bottom crystal celar cable car. Yeayyyy!!! I made it!

How to go to Maokong Gondola?
Just take MRT brown line and stop at Taipei Zoo.

I paid NTD50 for the gondola ride both way using easycard.



I rode the gondola all the way up to enjoy awesome view of tea plantation.



Enjoy the view while riding the maokong gondola and if you love the zoo, just stop at the zoo station.

Its short time in Taipei and I wish I have more days to explore. But back to reality of life, I need to work to finance my next trip!

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

Acupuncture Treatment at Tung Shin Hospital

My Plantar Fasciitis getting bad after return down to KL from Genting short weekend getaway recently. I guess my backpack load too heavy and stress up my heel so much. For those who don't know what is Plantar Fasciitis, I will give you some brief about this. Who knows it may hit you too once you aging like me...hehehe. Anyway, its good to know. Plantar Fasciitis is common pain for middle-aged people. WTH! can't believe I aged this quickly. Young people don't so happy! If you on your feet a lot and do lots of sports, this can hit you too.This pain caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch.  I got mine last year after came back from Taiwan trip in April 2016. I got diagnosed with knee problem in June 2016. So literally tackle my pain one by one. I concentrate on my knee healing and ignore the pain on my feet. Recently the pain on bottom of my heel getting unbearable. Every step with lots of pain and really wish can swallow pain killers or I kill people

How to Buy the Right Bra ?

Warning! This post is all about 'boobies'. If you have an allergy to 'boobies', please do not read this post. Don't blame me for not warning you. Read at your own risk. 😝 I really love shopping. Who doesn't? My most favourite shopping items are clothing and beauty care. There is one thing will give me an eerie and heavy heart if you even give me free shopping money for this item. Bra! For such a small item of clothing, bras are the hardest task for me.  First of all, I have bad experience shop for my own bra a long time ago. My perception, the salesperson who man the bra section mostly aunties who just care about the commission. Unlucky me always met the sales person who will criticize my 'poor boobies'. I have experienced one salesperson scoop up my 'boobies' just to check on my size. WTH! Super rude! I was taken aback at that time. Immediately made a 'U-turn' and never return. I was so puzzled and confused at that time. Why sh
