Tofu on a stick
I have so many electronic gadgets with a sticker on the bottom saying "Made in Taiwan". I always wondered what Taiwan was like.
Well, today, I'm going to Taiwan to see for myself! :-)

Guess what... the plane to Taipei leaves at 10:35 am at Chek Lap Kok... exact same time as the plane to Tokyo the week before. Coincidence?
Well, 10:35 am sounds like a nice time to travel... but it also means I have to get up at 6:30 am so I have enough time to pack my stuff, check out of the hotel, and go to the airport in time for check in. Aaaargh! :-P
What ya gonna do... just hopped on my favorite bus, Cityflyer A11. Again!

My travel companion for this trip, Chispa, was a little late this morning. But still enough time to check in.
Taipei Danshui area
The best part: At the check-in counter, they offered us exit row seats, because they thought I was sooo tall! Cool thing, it rarely happens to me that way! :-P
Cool thing No. 2: Those exit row seats where located on upper deck of the 747! It was more like business class up there, huge seats, only 4 in a row! China Airlines rules! Haha

One hour and a few minutes later we are in Taiwan! I like it when flight times are that short! :-)
Best thing about this trip is, I don't have to take care about anything! Chispa did all the planning and booking. So far, I don't even know what hotel she picked! Well, she is smart and sophisticated, so I trust her on this thing. So for me, it's just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride! Haha :-)

Later that day, we went to Dan Shui area and to the food market near Jiantan MRT station.
A lot of nice food in those areas!! :-) (Sorry little alien for not being able to keep up with you that evening...Sigh!)
