Ah Chung Mian Xian (noodle) 阿宗面线 at Xi Men Ding

I have heard a lot of comments about Ah Chong Mian Xian that the noodle doesn't taste as good as it thoughts thus I did not expect too much on the taste. I just wanna give it a try since I'm here in Taiwan. Surprisingly, the noodle taste really good! Me and my friends couldn't resist to have a bowl every night.

It was a long queue in front of this stall which selling charcoal grilled mochi.

Hmmm... I still prefer the mochi we have earlier (stated in previous post). Nothing special to shout about this.

BIG and white colour bitter gourd.

My healthy breakfast bought from 7-11.
Oat soy milk and tuna sandwich.

You will easily found many beautiful piece of art in Taiwan especially at the underground of Taipei.

Day 6: Exploring the little quaint old town in Jiu Fen (九份) which is 1 hour drive from Taipei city.

How could you not falling in love in this beautiful town. #JiuFen 九份

Jiu Fen is famous with its Taro Balls and I heard that it is originated from here.
Anyway, Malaysia's one taste better than this. -.- (*my personal thought)

 Day 7: We woke up early to avoid long queue for this famous Fu Hang Soy Milk (阜杭豆漿).

What do we have for breakfast? 
Soya milk (豆漿) $20 // rice milk (米漿) $20 // salty tofu fa (鹹豆腐花) $30 // Thick Naan (厚燒餅) $28 // Thin Naan (薄燒餅) $22 // Onion with eggs (蔥花蛋) $12 // deep-fried bread-stick or better known as Yao Zhar Guai in Cantonese (油條) $22 // salty onion naan (蔥花鹹餅) $22

*p/s: I did my very best in translating the name of the food we have @ Fu Hang Soy Milk. Susah betul...*

I posted this picture on fb and written "從捷運走出西門町站,看到這一幕。有感動到。。" which means "I walked out from Xi Men Ding train station and feel touching when I saw this" #JOM!BalikUndi.

Cute little puppy at Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (星光三越).
 Shin Kong Mitsukoshi is a shopping mall which located at few major city in Taiwan.

A talented guy from New York.
He can play guitar, drum (look at his back), sing etc at the same time. Awesome.

5D4N at Taipei was well-spent with my ex-colleagues and gotta thank them for the memorable trip.
