After a long & tiring day 1, and finally catching up on some sleep, we were all pretty excited about day 2 in Taipei as the itinerary was packed with many programs!
Here’s Angeline & I getting a shot before boarding the mini bus catered by the lovely Neogence team to “ferry” us to their factory!
So excited when we finally reached the place where the making & processing of Neogence products take place. I simply love visits to such places!
Neogence is a famous medical beauty specialist originated from Taiwan. With a research team consisting of professional dermatologists, it offers a series of products in accordance with weaknesses of Asian skin and climate. The brand mission is “sincerity, service and “environmental-friendly”: “sincerity “ represents a complete ingredient list that ensures safe and secured products; “service” means dedicated consultation; “environmental-friendly” stands for simple packing that reduce environmental degradation.

In order to keep the manufacturing plant hygienic, we were made to don on shower caps, masks & “socks” over our shoes.
This is definitely not the first time that I am learning about Neogence. Those who have been following this little space might have read about my reviews of some of Neogence products!
In February 2012, I was first introduced to Neogence Ace Revitalizing & Brightening Series, then I reviewed Neogence Ace Renewal & Repairing Mask. I attended Neogence Pore Solutions Launch in October 2012 with Dr. Hsieh Chien-Yang’s appearance.
How time flies!! I still had long hair then!
1 with my roomate, Kiyora!
Dr. Hsieh Chien-Yang & fellow Neogence crew personally brought us around & first, to the packaging area where we also had a mini packing competition between the 4 teams! Duh~ my team lost.
What rendered for such an outift?
We were all geared up, sanitized our gloved hands….
Stepped into a room where all remaining dirt was being “blow” off before we entered the manufacturing area where products ingredients were being handled.
That’s me having a go at filling up some serum into a bottle! I sure look like factory worker right! Hee~ I remembered working in a factory before when I was really young coz I wanted to experience!
This is how a BB cream is being formulated!
Our whole morning was indeed fruitful. I was so glad that I get to learn & understand how Neogence products come about and are being produced. That makes me even more confident in using as much as I love it! ;-D
Super frigging yummeh bento for lunch! Don’t see the fish like ugly-looking… it was the nicest ugly fish I ever had! 😉
In the afternoon, we went to 國泰金融中心 (Cathay Financial Center) for a press conference.

Glad to meet Nellie from Nanyang Press Holdings!
Snagged this Neogence paperbag thumbdrive! Cuteness~~
At the biggest Sasa outlet in Taipei!
Followed by some ice-cold dessert at Ice Monster! I tried the awesome Bubble Milk Tea Snow Ice. The portion was huge & I was elated that I checked off eating ice while feeling cold. ;-p
The day with Neogence crew ended in the evening & it was free & easy time!
Even though I was feeling extremely sleepy & cold & couldn’t wait to get back to the hotel room, I told myself no matter what I gotta visit the night markets with Kiyora! And I was glad I do, else I sure bring more regrets back to Singapore!

We visited Ximending 西門町 & Shilin 士林夜市! Had some yummy oyster egg & carrot cake….
I ordered the medium spicy one & ended up with swollen lips lol. Nevertheless, I will still go back & eat at this stall if I go to Taipei again! I tried this noodles again the next day elsewhere & it sucked! So I know this is really good lah! 😉
Hope you enjoy reading what I had gone through on the 2nd day! If you’re interested, click HERE for Day 1 post.
