Hi all,
just came back from Taiwan, summer time now, weather quite hot. Anyway, I've some NTD$ left over. NTD$20,000 to be exact.

I'm selling NTD$20K at SGD$900, that gives you a rate of 22.22. Anyone interested? If yes,
do drop me an email with your HP num: jasonngct@gmail.com. I can do meet-ups in Harbourfront, city or east area.
what is the market rate now?

The recording for month of August will be on 11 and 18 August 2008 at China TV (CTV Studio) in Nangang District. Two recordings a day at 1330 and 1830 hrs. Get there half an hour earlier. Queue at 1300 and 1800 hrs. No Charge for entry. If you go the the later show, eat something first so you wont get hungry. If more than 5 people in a group, to call up first.

I dun tink it is possible to get that price. Jus takin cab from Taipei to Hualien would easily be NTD$4000 so it is impossible to get that NTD$2250 from Taipei to Hualien and book him for a day in Hualien.

Nice places in Hualien:
1) Hualien Ocean Park
2) Whale and Dolphin Watching
3) White Water Rafting
4) Taroko Gorge
5) Qi Xing Lake
6) Nan Bing Night Market
7) Zheng He Night Market

All the above places can be completed within 3 days. There are some fun activities as well, fireworks and releasing Kongming Lantern.

IMHO, if you had been to places like shilin mite market...can skip the night market cos its too boring...nothing much...

The night market in Hualien is not as big as Taipei one. It is like our Bugis and it is full of food stall and those pasar malan game stall only. They dun hav clothes or accessories to sell like Taipei night market.

If u go Hualien remember to eat the 扁食

from taipei main station, take TRA train to ruifang, then transfer train to Ping Hsi Line. You can alight at Shi Fen, Ping Si, Or Jing Tong station to release sky lantern.

Take note that, the train are of irregular interval. therefore you have to plan the day well.

Refer below for train timing:

http://163.29.3.98/TWRail_en/index.aspx


The TRA train station and Taipei Main Station MRT are linked. Thus, buy ticket at TRA ticket counter, for the trip to Ruifang.

To buy ticket for Ping Hsi Line, buy the ticket at the platform counter when u alight at Ruifang.

hope it helps =)
