Hello! So sorry for the 2-week hiatus!
I don’t know if you have heard me talking about this trip to Taipei on Facebook or Twitter but I was darn excited when it finally happened despite suffering from a bad gastric flu for a whole week prior to the trip. I was also my godbrother’s wedding “jiemei” (sister) the day before so I was so busy that I did not sleep a wink for 2 days straight! #almostdied
Our itinerary for 4D3N was properly planned. The only tiny disappointment was the flight. Tiger Air was really cramped. A petite person like me felt suffocated, not to mention I was wearing boots.
On flight meal was provided. The lovely Neogence people had pre-ordered Hainanese Chicken Rice for us so we wouldn’t have to go hungry. I think I had 3 “breakfast” that morning! ;-p
The food box, tea & a bottle of water reached us & we spent 5 minutes trying to open it.
The top layer of rice was dry & hard. The chilli was too little and not spicy enough.
Check out the left portion of my food. It was vegetable. Old, black, dying vegetable. Totally fail lah this meal. Tiger Air, please buck up!
I am not intending to sound like a complaint queen here, just take my opinions as a reference should you decide to order any food on Tiger Air. 😉
Finally reached Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport!!
Home Hotel was where we would be staying for the next 4 days!
No. 90, Sōngrén Rd, Xinyi District, Taipei City, Taiwan 110
Bar at hotel lobby.
I didn’t take photo of the bag of products that Neogence prepared for me in the hotel room so here’s one I took at home instead. So many awesome products I see here!!
Kiyora & I went out for a walk & the streets were so packed!
It was mad cold, around 11 degrees I think, Wind was so strong that I regretted only wearing a long sleeve hoodie & shawl. All I wanted to do was hide in the hotel room!
After a short rest, we were brought to A11 Shin Yeh 欣葉 古今旬菜, an Asian fusion restaurant at 台北市信義路5段7號85樓之1(台北101大樓). Extension building of Taipei 101, level 85.
Regional of cold appetizers: Oven baked Mullet Roe coated with Squid Mousse, Jelly Fish, Hokkaido Scallop with Japanese soy sauce.
台式佛跳墙。Taiwanese Signature Soup with Taro, Pork, Spare rib and Chicken.
Steamed South African Abalone.
Sweet & Sour King Prawn.
Sauteed Seasonal Bamboo.
Fried Rice with Tender Beef.
Season Fresh Fruits & Petite Sweets.

This 8-course dinner was really frigging awesome! And I recovered most of my appetite. 😉
A photo with my team mates & leader. (Pardon my no-smile face coz I was really exhausted)
To end day 1 of Taipei trip, Kiyora brought me to Tong Hua & we had a 40 minutes foot massage session at 足林高手足體概念養生館 for 400TWD.
That’s all for 1st day! Stay tuned for the eventful 2nd & 3rd day posts! 😉
