Day 3: July 9th, 2012

After breakfast, we checked out from 被浪打到民俗 and took a cab to Hualien train station. Our train was scheduled to depart from the station at 9.05am. As we still had some time to kill, we decided to look for 曾记麻吉 which was famous for mochi. After asking around, we discovered that the shop was within walking distance. In fact, it was just opposite the train station. We bought some to try and I loved it~

We reached Taipei Main Station around noon and had lunch at the food court on the 2nd floor. There was a great variety of food to choose from but the place was so crowded that we didn’t really get to enjoy the meal. After lunch, we took the MRT to Taipei City Hall station (blue line) and from there we walked to Taipei 101, the world’s second tallest building.

Kiate and I had visited the observatory before, so we decided to give it a pass this time round. While waiting for my parents and brother to come down, we went for a drink and ended up snapping random photos.

On the way back, we came across this…

…and how we wished the three li’l ones – Jayden, Jacinda and Dylan – were there to join in the fun.

We took the MRT to XiMen station and walked to our Nei Jiang Hotel, which was strategically located in Xi Men Ding area.

And the last attraction for the day was none other than 士林夜市 Shilin night market.
