Day 1 @ 7D6N Taiwan Trip

Henry Tan | 9:15 PM | |
I'm gonna share with you my 7D6N Taiwan Trip experience!

Summary for Day 1:
02.40pm : Arrival at Terminal 2, Taoyuan International Airport (Taipei)
04.30pm : Meatball Mee Hoon @ Hairei Gong Wan, Hsinchu (摃丸米粉@ 海瑞贡丸, 新竹)
05.30pm : Betelnut Beauty @ Miaoli Sanyi (檳榔西施@苗栗三義)
07.00pm : Fengjia Hsinsu (逢甲新宿)
08.00pm : Fengjia Night Market (逢甲夜市)

Do bear with me as this is gonna be a long long post!
And it is just DAY 1!

Gosh! I love Taiwan!

Check in luggage!

**FYI - Save Money Tips** 
- Check in with the least amount of weight, 15kg! 
- Or even share the luggage weight if the ticket book together
- Upgrade the weight 4 hours before your return flight 

Yup, I took Air Asia X in the morning flight! 
The flight ticket costs me RM822 including luggage, seats etc.
Departure: 10am Arrival: 2.40pm

Freaking 4 hours 40 minutes! :S 

The only thing to do - eat!
**FYI - Save Money Tips** 
Perhaps you might wanna consider pre-book the meal! (cheaper!)
After eat, sleep!
Otherwise the clock will be ticking too slow!

First thing to do after arriving at Taipei Airport - Buy local sim card!
The local telco counters are all located inside the airport.

I chose Chunghwa Telco as the plan suits me the best.

Plan D -NTD500
- 7 days unlimited data
- NTD150 airtime balance

Signal is strong in most of the places.
But a few of you subscribed will do.
Cause you can always make your phone Hot-Spot and share data.
Besides, Taiwan's major city all full of free Wi-Fi!

This is the Taoyuan International Airport.
All of the Airasia X flight will be at Terminal 2.

Half of our trip, we engaged with the driver guide, Mr. Lim.
He's friendly and joke with us a lot! =D
We paid him around NTD3100 per person for the whole trip.
I wouldn't say it is the cheapest but definitely hassle-free.

Uncle Lim
+886977110050
+886922306565

Looks cloudy even though it is summer season!

Scooters everywhere in Taiwan!

Meatball Mee Hoon @ Hairei Gong Wan, Hsinchu 
(摃丸米粉@ 海瑞贡丸, 新竹)

One of the most famous meatball shop!

I always thought meatball mee hun mixed together.
But in fact, they are two separate dishes.

Minced meat bee hun - NTD50 per pax

Don't be fooled by the plain and dry bee hoon!
Actually it was tasty when you mixed well with the minced meat.

You should try their specially made chilies too!

Meatball (3pcs) - NTD35 per pax

Like the Taiwanese always said...
"很Q~~!!" 
The meatball is juicy and springy! 
The best among all that we tested through out the trip.

Full of people. Mostly tourists.
I have read about it, some said only tourist would go.




Betelnut Beauty @ Miaoli Sanyi 
(檳榔西施@苗栗三義)

Penang and betelnut somehow related!
So of course... 
Penanglang must meet the Betelnut Beauty! hehe! =D

One of the Must-See-In-Taiwan would be the betelnut beauty!
They are usually in seducing outfit and in the neon-lit glass booth.

Lucky for us, we met a decent one! =D

Pretty isn't it? =D

Well, Mr. Lim treated us the Mr.Brown coffee.
As you know chewing betelnut can cause cancer!

Homestay @ Fengjia Hsinsu (逢甲新宿)

Fengjia night market is just right below of our homestay.
Perfect place to stay!

This is our nicely decorated room! 
However, it is a bit different from what we see from their website.

R13 - 南洋峇里

Room for 2
Normal day - NTD990
Peak day - NTD1400


Fengjia Night Market (逢甲夜市)

This is the downstairs of my homestay.

Entrance towards the Fengjia Night Market! *excited*

You will see a lot of stalls selling prawns and oysters.

Too bad I'm allergic to prawns, so have to skip this! >.<

Charcoal Roasted Chicken Fillet (雞排)

One of the common food in Taiwan would be the chicken fillet (雞排).
Different flavors and cooking styles.

Tempting! =D

Lamb Skewers (羊肉串)

Chicken, pork or lamb?

1 for NTD30 and 4 for NTD100

Then the must-drink is Papaya Milk (木瓜牛奶) - NTD45
You will see it almost everywhere!
No wonder Taiwan girls are hot! XD

Seeee! Whole street full of food!
You don't even know where to start with! 

Girls would definitely go this!
Like the tagline written - Best Place for Trendy Bags!

Full house!
While for me, standing outside while carrying all the big big shopping bags! >.<

The streets full of lights mainly from the signboard of the shops. 

One side selling clothes, one side selling food!
That's how all your money gone! TT

While waiting, this stall attracted me - Golden Thief! 

Well it is actually squid!
In Chinese, squid is called 乌贼.
And 贼 means thief! So it is the Golden Thief! =D

See! Taiwan artists - 郭彥甫 (Guo Yan Fu) & 郭彥均 (Guo Yan Jun) came before too!

Deep fried squid with cheese topping and sweet & sour sauce!
One set - NTD75

Golden Barbeque German Pork Knuckle - NTD100

Well you should know, pork knuckle full of collagen which is good for beauty. =p

See the red meat? Slurrppppp!!

Somehow I took it home only eat and it is no longer warm!
So it is advisable to eat it instantly if you do not want the skin to be hardened.

Portuguese Egg Tart (葡撻) - 4pcs - NTD100

Fengjia Night Market is too big that it covers a few lanes!
So probably one night wouldn't be enough to cover all.

Well, we walked until the night market closed which is around 1am.
Honestly, I almost can't feel my lethargic legs! So tired!

Total spending for Day 1: 
NTD (500+3100+85+990+100+45+75+100+45+100) = NTD4995

Fengjia Night Market definitely has

So much to see & so much to eat!!

That's basically my Day 1 for my 7D6N Taiwan Trip!
Stay tuned for the upcoming days! =D

  16. BH Uden Ryg is the Danish word for a backless bra. I had to go to a gala and I did not have a bra which suited my dress as it was a backless dress. The BH uden ryg solved my problem. I recommend it!

  21. the shop appearance nice. I've ne'er detected of the BH uden Ryg, soutien-gorge adhésif however they give the impression of being promising. You took such a large amount of pretty photos that i do not grasp that outfit or piece of vesture is my favorite either. i favor everything! and therefore the kids section is simply too CUTE! I would like i used to be visiting Paris therefore I might see it for myself BH uden Ryg, soutien-gorge adhésif. i am positively an admirer currently. Hopefully, there'll be international shipping. i am keeping my fingers crossed.

  23. Vores selvklæbende BH uden Ryg, soutien-gorge adhésif er et “made in USA” produkt og fabrikeret af nut af Diamond State største BH uden Ryg, soutien-gorge adhésif – 3M. Vi tager afstand fra kinesiske kopivarer, der også kan bench vise nut negativ effekt på huden. Bhudenryg.dk er ikke blank nut tape, men den giver nut gennemsigtig, vandtæt, allergivenlig klæbemiddel og er uden sammenligning til nogen andre BH uden Ryg, soutien-gorge adhésif .
