Erm.. so yeah today (it’s 11:11PM at the moment, finally had a shower and unpacked everything after a loooooooong day) we landed in Taoyuan Airport around 5:30AM local time (GMT+8).
Our plane back at Sydney was suppose to take off around 10PM AEST but it got delayed so yeah.. arrived at TW late too. Quite a bumpy ride; fair bit of turbulence and didn’t get much sleep.
So our first stop was at my aunty’s place for a quick breakfast and rest before the loooong day began.
Let me first say that it was windy and rainy all day with the average temperature being around 6~8 degrees Celsius – I can usually withstand such coldness but the wind chill was so unforgiving..
Anyway first up was all you can eat hotpot! In this weather? Yes please!
And then Robin did this..
So then we took a bus to our next destination near Taipei 101, on the seat in front of me..
Anyway the next part is going to be about this Teppanyaki place which is actually “lighter” and uses “Rose Salt” for a lot of their seasoning.
From my last trip to Taiwan back in 2009 I have really come to respect Taiwan Teppanyaki because it borders fine dining, unlike Sydney where it is more playful.
A lot of dishes were served on this plate because the left side of it was some grated Rose salt for seasoning.
Anyway that was pretty much dinner in short.
I’ll finish up now since I should really sleep.
Taiwan in 2011 is celebrating their 100 years of er.. kind of like Australia’s Federation I suppose?
Done for day 1! Creeped into day 2! Ack!
