下一站: 辛福 – 就是开开心心的生活

When it comes to eating on traveling, it is always a challenge to stay as healthy as possible.

I didn’t get to have tea with Hello Kitty because my ETA overshoot by an hour. The direct bus at 1stop operating after 1600hrs, way before my arrival time at Taoyuan International Airport. So I ended up taking a transfer bus then change to subway.

Shortly after I’ve checked in, I make my way to 阿宗面线.

阿宗麵線
No. 8之1號, Éméi St, Wanhua District, Taipei City
Hours:
Sun, Sat 10:30am–11pm
Mon-Fri 10:30am–10:30pm

I told J to take some pictures and he told me to reuse my old pictures. How hilarious is that? He also insisted that I take-away his portion so that he can eat at Shilin Night Market.

When we were here in Taipei in Oct 2011, Shilin night market was still at pre-moving stage. Now the old site is under construction and the night market has shifted, some stalls go to basement and ground level.

J was satisfied with his dinner – beef steak (150NT), XXL crispy chicken (55NT), Mango shaven ice (120NT) and my fave fruit juice – honey bitter gourd (60NT).

We went around and did some shopping before ending up sleeping at 3am.

We have no plans to do karaoke because J only sing in the bathroom. I remembered singing in a Hello Kitty theme karaoke in Taipei some years ago.

A good friend told me I have to visit this beef noodle store. As I had listed some places to go on this trip and usually plan according to shortest dist btw places. I will cover these places as follows.

PS: It may be a challenge to locate this beef noodle store because if you do not make any turn, you won’t be able to see it.

PS PS: Try to arrive before peak hour to avoid long queue.

Taste: Only if you fancy beef noodle with lots of garlic and able to eat a huge portion of noodle.

There are many entries on this beef noodle store, this is an example.

Afterwards, we took the same bus 260 to Yang Ming Shan, hiked and sweated before taking the mini-bus 9 to Xin Bei Tou. We visited the Hot Spring Museum, Millennium Hot Spring and Thermal Valley. We also ended up taking a cheap hot spring bath to wash away our sweaty bodies.

Then we took the subway to Dan Shui station and boarded bus R26 to Fisherman Wharf. Initially we wanted to take the ferry but it was too early for sunset and thought of taking it on the way back. When we arrived at fisherman Wharf, the sun glare was too strong. We ended up chilling out at starbucks and when it was nearer to sunset, we headed out. It was beautiful to enjoy the wind and beautiful sunset. When the full moon came out, it was even more beautiful. It was very romantic to stroll along Fisherman Wharf.

i am very, extremely ..

update > almost on every wkday nights, i only sleep for 3-4 hours and when it comes to weekend, i don’t even sleep at night.

i remember when my body is younger, i can do w/o sleep and be out the whole night. Of course, in terms of TCM, this is extremely bad.
but before i head off to Indon, we will be partying at KudeTa Singapore and go straight to the ferry terminal the next day.

OH MY! I’ve not do this in a long time.

————

i am very busy but the thought of being not so busy after the “busy” has ended irks me.
it will means my mind will start to wander and try sth stupid to do.

my sleeping and eating pattern have been screw up by myself but as we all know, the young body can overcome it.

however, the young body is not so young anymore.

2. do not sleep on saturday nights
3. wake up late on weekend, have lunch and continue to sleep
4. crave for KFC and the high sugar content milk tea

6. watch too much TV
