Alright Im going to Taipei on the 1stOct, taking SQ872 departing 0835am and will touch down Taipei early noon 1315. Most likely staying Taipei for 2 nights, and proceed to Hualien/Toroko on the 3rd day( Gona stay in Hualien for one night I guess). No plans for the 4th day yet, contemplating whether i should proceed to Taichung, or head on to Alishan and spend a night there to catch the early sunrise. Right after that, may consider travelling over to Tainan( Im not too sure if its a good idea, but will be great if u guys out there can give me some recommendations on other places to explore around Alishan vicinity, if there's any)..Not too sure about the routes to Keelung, Wulai, Green island, Kenting etc but will do a comprehensive research on it very soon....No plans on the 5 th and 6th day as well, but will spend the 7th and 8th night in Taipei again. Taking SQ875 on the 9thOct departing TPE 1825 and arrive SIN 2250.
Home sweet home.

seasons of holiday i figure... if you see any good deal out there ( own judgement ) better grab it soon, the school holiday also bring out the "I WANT TO GO SOMEWHERE" mood..... its so hard to plan...

advisable to buy computer products in taipei?

It'll be my first time going there and i was wondering whether buying stuffs like motherboard, graphics card, etc is recommended in taipei (besides the fact that i know their warranty might not be valid when i come back to SG)

On the other hand, i found out that there's 3 'sim lim squares' in taipei. Mainly:

nova computer market
kwanghwa bazaar
international electronics plaza

Anyone been to these places before? Would really like to hear your advice. thanks.

Guanghua is where you should go, best prices.
If you know your Electronics, things at Guanghua are pretty good and dont spoil easily. They cater to all the DIY Crowd here and the competition is stiff, so bad reputation info moves really fast.

hi jus back frm taipei!
went frm 22 - 25..
22,23 raining... 24,25 super hot!!
good weather to go now!
ha its better to shop when theres no rain, cuase not fun in night market!

kk some update..

SHilin:
hmm the 'ji pai' shud try, though not vv vv fantastic but better den our singapore one. much better. the one there is big and cant finish. ha.
the 'oyster omellete' vv different frm ours.. not vv nice singapore newton circle nicer.. hah. but can try for the experience.. but the oyster there is fresh! =)
the 'pao pao bing' just ice not vv special not a need to try..
'beef steak' is not bad.. but i think not vv special too so not a need to try.. its a huge portion which we shared and got vv full.. i think save ur tummy for other stuff..
the 'pepper bun' we took away didnt eat immediately den it got cold not its not nice le.. maybe cause we were too full and tired and its full of pork which my bf dun like. ha.
theres this 'yew cong bing' like roti prata wrap with egg and ur choice of thing.. we took the ham thing.. nice! can try! its everywhere~

i went on my 2nd night and it was raining so dampen our mood by a bit. the clothes there can be found in wu fen pu and its vv squuezy there so walk carefully..
rem to bring umbrella.
theres a NT135 and NT78 shop in shilin so for those looking for bargains can try these shops.. but need to search carefully, alot of things not our style..
generally taipei stuff more inclined towards ah lian ah beng clothings..

wu fen pu:
NT100 clothes all placed outside the shops.. can look thru but not much clothes of our style..
the guys wear some not bad and the stripes shirts onli NT100 vv worth the buy..
we fen pu closes vv late.. i think 12am.. so can visit here at night if no where else to go~ =)
got the 'lu rou fan' shop there too.. outside wu fen pu.. the zhang fei look alike that shop.. need to ask around.. i chanced upon it... its on the way to MRT.
nice! haha i like the lu rou fan there! =) NT26 only!

dan shui:
nice place! good scenery! go visit the dan shui lao jie! a must! the NT50 bag shop not bad too.. there alot of food.. i tried this 'hua zi shao'.. super good. haha. 'ah gei' so so only.. the '30cm icecream' jus try la.. NT10.. ha.

xi men ting:
didnt shop much there.. not our style as usual.. but i chanced upon the 'ma tong' restaurant.. the food there super good.. i recommend the curry beef or sth.. one of the signature dish.. nice! order 1 and shared! big! hhaa.. shud visit any of the themed restaurant there.. an experience!
but this restuarant is hidden.. not in the usual xi men ting.. we anyhow walk walk to this ulu place den saw it de. hahah..

the 'ya rou bian' dun need try. not good. normal. the duck vv salty too.
'ah zong mian sian' so so only.. not good too. an uncle told me to try the one in huaxi night market or sth.. its the best there.. oh well.. the ah zong mian sian overated. but can still try and taste the difference..

taipei 101 area:
we didnt take the thing to go up.. quite costly and we don see the need.. so skipped it. we walked around abit den left le. new york new york and the rest not open yet, quite rush for time so left first..

the underground malls i feel can skip too.. not much stuff there! jus rows of shop.. but can visit jus for the xperience too.. cause its a really long stretch.. haha. den the shops like vv old and its not really happening so its optional i feel. taipei city mall at the taipei main station is enough we feel. not much stuff.

things to buy/eat:
'tie dan'! dan shui there got sell quite cheap too! i like this alot! vv nice!
eh 'mua ji'... nice! =)
'green bean cake' is good~!
airport got sell too if u all missed it.
jus buy a bit of the local stuff back~ but dun buy in jiu fen~ all overpriced.. i got from there so learnt a lesson.. haha.

the last day i was walking back and we saw a shop selling 'niu rou mian' so we decided to try.. yum! nice! go try! the beef is good!


my guided tour 2nd day:
those who signed up for the hot spring tour.. mine is 4days3nights.. 2nd day guided..
take note.. ha they will bring you to a few place to buy stuff.. hard selling for a few places.. oh well. no choice. den they bring u to a buffet tt sucks. haha.

but they bring u to alot of places! like jiufen! intersting to walk the stretch of road and eat abit here and there but not a need to purchase local products frm there as the food can be found elsewhere too.

the guided tour to the national palace musuem was interesting and the marty's shrine see change of guards. den bring us to bei tou for hot spring but fully booked! the days we went jus nice their holiday season!! mid autumn festival! 4 days break! wa so shuang right them.. ya.. den the hot spring no more rooms, u can go for the mass hot spring.. we paiseh skip it. i sick too. not advisable to go down.

last note:
usually if sign up frm local agencies, they will give u a guided tour and hotel got free complimentary breakfast too. jus take it. not a bad deal. they will bring u to alot of places whcih save ur transport cost and energy.
the morning breakfast is at 'dante coffe' restuarant.. its everywhere. not bad. try their tuna burger or sth. quite good. but skip the french toast not nice. ha.
i stayed at everspring hotel which is vv far off as the agency cant book any for us. we vv last min.
but its not bad! the room is good! with jazzuci bath tub inside too. at nanjing e road station. vv accessible to mrt so in the end its alright. free adsl interenet access too. but got this brother hotel jus beside mrt. so ppl u all can try. taipei like singapore. vv small. easy walk around.

have fun! =D
