half of the people who were traveling with me thought Taipei was boring...I thought Taipei really opened my eyes to the world! I believed you have seen those mad governors in their parliament, those kaypohs corny entertainment shows, etc... nothing good seems to come out from this place isn't it? But I was actually quite amazed by how disciplined they were even though they were living in a complicated society. At least, they really cared for their country, really cared for the environment! You know, in Macdonald's, there are 2 bins, one for you to dispose plastic and one for you to dispose paper. And the patrons actually bothered to differentiat the materials and disposed them into the respective bins! Impressed! In Sg, people don't even bother to dispose their food after consumption! Sad Sad...... I captured some faces of Taipei and hope you will enjoy these pics and my comments!
Just a MacDonald's receipt.
Yeah, this is where I realised there are 2 bins in their MacDonalds!
Wu Fen Pu. One of many street markets in Taipei. This place is actually a wholesale place that sells mainly clothings and bags, you can't try their clothings as they really sell you at a low price. My travel pals actually like this place because it is cheap and there are alot of varieties!
Cute right? But the owner of this cutey really made me feel sorry for him, as you can see below...
See... this small boy actually sells handbags and wallets at the entrance of their MRT station. His eyes look sad and it seems these 2 doggies are his only companions.
Yes, 7-11...nothing special you may say, but do you know in Taipei only, there are already 2000 over 7-11 outlets!
Managed to eat MacDonalds in Taipei. I make it a point to try different countries' MacDonalds you see...
This is the place where I got Taiwan's famous BBQ sliced beef, Pork Floss and their kueh-kuehs. This place is now doing better than Xin Dong Yang (a place in Chinatown Point where you can get everything Taiwan)
You can't leave Taiwan without first trying their beef noodle! Zan!
Eating on high stool is so common in Taiwan! This shop is actually inside Taipei Railway Station, kind of like our City Link.
See, I even took pic of their traffic lights! That fellow green cap really suits the traffic lights! Ha!
When you are in Taipei, you cannot not go to Ximen Ding. It's the Orchard of Taiwan. I really thought I will see nice posh buildings, but so wrong am I! There are mainly 2-3 stories tall shophouses that housed the latest accessories, clothings, etc... in Ximen Ding.
They say during weekends in Ximen Ding, you can see many stars there. See, here I chanced upon Vanesse and An Qi Xian! They were having their autographed session when I passed by them. I even saw Zhang Shan Wei, but didn't take pictures of him. I also saw Sun Ho outside Taipei Railway Station.
Behind me is Taipei Railway Station.
We had so many lousy dinners in Taipei! Haha... I'll rather have my dinner at their roadside stalls than fancy restaurants!
Yes! Taipei's roadside stalls are the best! For all those people who love Taiwanese variety show, listen to Taiwanese singers' songs, love hot springs, roadside stalls, you have to GO TO TAIWAN
