day 21 in taiwan (0 comments)
today we had a long stroll through taipeh, again with loads of nice people, shopping, eating, heat and humidity. but at least it seems "kai-tak" is not affecting the north of taiwan at all, though the south gets hit hard, at least according to the news we've seen on monitors in the metro and on tv-screens in the malls. baeh, typhoons suck, poor people in the south :/ for us, the more lucky ones, this means that there should be no problem with the flight tomorrow. we also got up pretty late because nina was very tired in the morning (because of yesterday's massage maybe?). but we made it to the breakfast, and then went to a tiny shop only about 50 metres from our hotel entrance away, called "melecat". they had all kind of stuff with the cute little melecat on it, most of it being bags of all sorts. nina bought a bag there, i got a key fob - so cute! then follows a shopping spree by nina, i spare you all the details... at around 15:00 o'clock we arrived at the "hello kitty sweets shop"[01-28] and were escorted to our table by staff all dressed in pink, and with loads of bows and lace. and, remarkably enough, also the male member of the staff was wearing a pink apron! then we ordered hello kitty cake, coffee, and got a free hello kitty pudding, and the LMFAO song "party rock anthem", and waitresses in short skirts. aaaaaw, so much pink, so much kitty, it was totally awesome! BUT!... and here comes the biiiiig but... there was a thing that totally puzzled me... see pictures on slides 11 and 12, for example. do you notice any oddity?
after this wonderful coffee/cake break we were walking around the area to later go to "zhuji", another restaurant recommendation by jeff. jeff told us to try the pastries there, and so we did. some beef, vegetable, leek and seafood pastries[42,45], a soup with braised beef[43], and a wonton soup[44]. super delicious!
with full bellies we were rolling to even more shops afterwards. nina again was on a shopping spree :) later we got back to the hotel to have our last night in taiwan. time flies... track: day 21
