Taipei

For the past 5 days I was in Taipei for a work related trip. My free time was limited but I did manage to go to a few places by myself via the metro.

Ximenting Shopping District

I visited Taiwan 9 years ago and I still remember this place. It’s a shopping district selling lots of clothes, food and other stuffs.

How to get there: Stop at Ximen station

Something like roti prata pancake with filling that you choose

image

Raohe Market

This is a food night market and you will find a lot of Taiwan’s street foods.

image

These are minced pork buns cooked by sticking them to the wall of a charcoal brick oven.

image

Candied fruits

image

This is like tapioca flour (I think) filled with red bean. It’s a cold dessert.

image

I saw this everywhere

image

Longshe Temple

image

image

Taipei 101

image

image

Macha red bean

image

Shilin Night Market

Fried milk balls

image

Candy floss

image

Weird name to name a cake

image

A very clean and new toilet in the heart of Shilin Night Market. Need to pay TWD $20 to enter and you get a free bottle of water too.

Taipei Main Train Station

The title says it all. The girls had their first haircut two weeks ago at 2.5 years old. It went like a breeze. They sat on the chair quietly for 15 minutes, while watching Peppa Pig on the screen in front of them.

Impromptu Trip to Melaka

29 Apr 2015

Last Saturday hubby called and told me to pack some clothes. An hour later we were booking hotel room and 4 hours later we were in Melaka, Malaysia. The last time we were there was probably 9 years ago!

image

We stayed at Ramada Hotel. Their room was spacious and they had comfortable beds. Kids used the bathtub as their pool.
image

image

That night, we walked along the Jonker street night market
image

Ate dinner and after that we even managed to get a foot reflexology. Thank god the kids behaved well.
image

The next day we did some sightseeing.

Earth Day

In: Twins

24 Apr 2015

The girls had an earth day project to do at home. They had to do an art or craft work using natural elements.

One fine day on a weekend, we went to the backyard to look for twigs, leaves and whatever we could find.

image

And when I was free on another day, we made these – a twig boat for Chantel and a “at the beach” poster for Chalene.

image

We used twigs, cotton string and papers to make the boat.

image

image

image

Chalene currently likes to watch peppa pig’s “at the beach” episode. So that is why I thought of making a beach theme poster.
