Once again the day was split in two’s.
I spent the earlier half of the day with Albert at Danshui for lunch – small things as we have not had the chance to visit Danshui yet.
Dinner was with my eldest aunty’s family and my second eldest aunty and uncle along with a family friend, and mum and Albert of course.
To celebrate my eldest aunty's birthday 🙂
Anyway so.. Danshui~
This one is for you Wing, skill testers 😛
First - fried shrimp rolls.
Second - "Stinky" tofu, well a different style of cooking it.
Third - Albert's ice cream.
Fourth - fried calamari/squid.
Some of the views~ cloudy day though.
Wing's absolute FAVOURITE...
Fifth - Taiwan-style Takoyaki.
Busy streets~ well kinda.
Albert went to try the BB gun shooting thing.. and won this LAWL.
Sixth - Fried Mushroom 😉
We had dinner at this restaurant, it was vegetarian as my eldest aunty is vegetarian.
On the way I said to Albert that the biggest “beef” that I have with vegetarian restaurants (get the pun? ;)) is that they don’t tend to spruce up their joint.
Damn, this restaurant proved me wrong.
The menu~ was a set menu.
Rosemary (soft)breadsticks with dip to start.
Appetizer, eat from right to left haha.
The salad I chose; fruit salad with yogurt, the jellies with the fruit was a really nice touch.
Not sure what soup was the one I chose xD but it was goooooood.
My cousin's vegetarian calzone.
My mushroom-pasta bake, mmmm.
One of their pastas..
Different type of pasta~
Mum's main, looked so nice. It was a special type of bamboo or something hmm..

Complementary small dish of their rice.
Albert's chocolate-cheese mousse.
My panna cotta~
Ice cream with black sesame jelly.
Mum's flower jelly.
And of course.. a birthday cake :P.
Anyway.. going to be heading down to Chia Yi around 4pm (7pm AEST) tomorrow, will try to update when I get there.. not sure if I will be able to – might have to do one huge update when I get back to Sydney on the 31st.
