• Leaving Cingjing
After our breakfast prepared by the Minsu, we were all really reluctant to leave this beautiful place plus it was soooo cold that morning!! It was 12 degree celsius! I'm already missing it now :-(
• Lu rou fan!!!
After reaching Ximending, while waiting for the trio to reunite with them, we had luroufan (braised pork rice) and paigu mian (pork ribs noodles) for our lunch right beside Dong Long hotel. IT WAS SO GOOD!!! Tasted so authentic and it was such a simple meal yet exceedingly satisfying for some reason. The guys even had two bowls of the rice! Hahaha
• Beitou Hotspring
We managed to find one after a fairly long walk because of the heavy rain and settled for that as the price was reasonable and the place looks decent! Opted for the private room and it was really nice! You can take a shower (or a rinse) first before dipping your body into the hot spring (it's not ordinary water!) which is supposed to provide you with certain health benefits hahaha.
After enjoying the hot bath, Wilf and I decided to try the cold bath and it was equally shiok!!! I actually prefer the cold bath but he prefers the hot one!
• Second lunch/dinner????
We settled at this place which sells a ton of ramen and it was uh, meh hahaha
• Supper @ Ximending
After the guys explored the alleys of street shops, we got hotstar fried chicken and Ah Chung meesua for supper! The chicken was huuuuge and really yummy!! Wilfred loved the meesua too hahaha.
Yup, after that we just chilled in the hotel and played bean boozled before we turned in as we'll be heading to jiufen, shifen & shilin night market the next day! ^_^
Feel free to ask any questions if you have any!
