Second Day in Taiwan

Date of visited: 21 December 2010
Before we went to Window On China Theme Park (Part 1 & Part II), we were brought by the tour to an old street which outskirt of Taipei. I forgot what is the name of this old street but nothing much to sight at here. Just an old and quiet antique street in the early morning.

The dog is wearing winter wear. Guess the weather must be very cold for it.

After the tour around Window of China Theme park which had taken almost half day, we went to tangerine and orange mandarin farm. At here, we can direct pluck the fruits from the tree and eat. Because it is free, we pluck as many as we want.

Although it was winter season at that moment, but we able to enjoy the fresh and sweet orange mandarin without need to wait until coming Chinese New Year. Thanks to the local tour guide, Mr Bruce Wang for giving me and my brothers the really sweet orange mandarin while on the other side, my mother always pluck on the sour orange mandarin. :|

These boots are made for walking. It is so cheap which some of it cost less than RM20 but unfortunately, the size I want is out of stock. :(

After the dinner, after the shop, we went to check-in hotel. For this tour, almost every night we went back early to the hotel. Since it was just around 8 pm, my brothers and I went to explore more because there are many shops and cafe nearby the hotel that we stayed.

Taken by my bro. Therefore, so blur. Inside a high class shopping mall which just located beside the hotel. There is even a cinema inside.

If you are a shoe-string traveller, I recommend you to have your meal at 7-Eleven. Not only in Hong Kong and Japan, even at Taiwan too, there are variety of foods that you can choose from.

Before going back to the hotel, my brothers and I tapao (take-away) McD. My brothers and I weren't that hungry but we love to try different type of McD at different places and cities. I think someday I will show you "McD Meals Around the World". Hahaha...
