A blog about me, Chalene & Chantel and anything under the sun
On Mother’s Day, our girls turned 2.5 years old.
We had lunch with my sister and brother on Mother’s day but before lunch we went to.a park
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
This is a food night market and you will find a lot of Taiwan’s street foods.
These are minced pork buns cooked by sticking them to the wall of a charcoal brick oven.
This is like tapioca flour (I think) filled with red bean. It’s a cold dessert.
I saw this everywhere
Macha red bean
Shilin Night Market
Fried milk balls
Weird name to name a cake
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.
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!
It was a pretty fun albeit short trip!
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.
And when I was free on another day, we made these – a twig boat for Chantel and a “at the beach” poster for Chalene.
We used twigs, cotton string and papers to make the boat.
Chalene currently likes to watch peppa pig’s “at the beach” episode. So that is why I thought of making a beach theme poster.
