Weather forecast mention tomorrow will have big wind and rain... I buying instant noodle tonight in case. Now drizziling at taipei 101. Changed my plan. Squeeze everything into 1 day...
You really should try the sandwiches at 7-eleven, or 7 as Taiwanese calls it. Very nice, way better than instant noodles.

naxchua, now the weather is good must hurry walk around outdoors.

I returned last night.
Sunday and yesterday the weather was very bad, rained the whole day!

Sunday, we went taipei underground mall in noon then Danshui despite the rain. But is sianz de lo, a lot of food i wanna try but no hand liao cos got to hold umbrella (umbrella need to use two hands instead of one cos of the strong wind u dunno when will come). No hand to take pictures too, plus the camera cannot have any contact with water. We cancelled Shilin night market at night, sad again. Went taipei underground mall to shop again and lost the way while wanting to walk from Y-mall to K-mall. Now is start of autmun and winter approaching so summer clothes are all on sale.. from SGD5 to SGD 15! No need to go 5fenpu le. The shopping slightly brighten my mood.

Monday(yesterday). Morning we wake up rain until at night i board plane -_- Morning we go eat doujiang, then mrt to 101, but when we exit the station, the wind is strong and rain is heavy. While waiting to cross at the junction, we gave up. Walked back to the station and mrt-ed to XMD. Shop at XMD and check out. While shopping at XMD, it was still raining, the umbrella close and open, close n open, so troublesome! It was then i tot we should have buy a raincoat yesterday. Sigh. Too late la.

So overall, it was a bad but fruitful trip cos i bot stuffs back n even 3 boxes of bowl noodles. Btw for the 'yi du zhan' bowl noodles, nice one is the beef or kong rou? I wanted more of the beef but the staff told me singaporeans all buy kong rou. In the end i got both. Lol.

And just to mention a bit, jetstar air stewardess on the flight to taipei are pretty and on the way back air steward handsome! haha... And then on flight back there is this gentleman passenger helped me put my bags up in the cabin, how sweet! And I tot he will be sitting next to me but NO. Aiyerr....

It was not my 1st trip to tw but it was the 1st time i was mistaken as a local, pple asked me for directions. haha.. not one but two!

中央氣象局昨(六)日下午解除輕度
颱風「芭瑪」的海上警報,由於芭瑪持續南移,
迎風面的東北部降雨可望和緩下來,預估八日起,北方的冷空氣南下後,各地氣溫平均下降二到三度,早晚溫差可能超過五度,提醒民眾留意保暖。

怪颱芭瑪雖沒有直撲台灣,卻為宜蘭山區帶來一千五百毫米驚人雨量,出現「未納入陸上警報警戒區」降雨卻最多的奇特現象,由於芭瑪持續南移,受外圍環流影響,氣象局仍針對恆春半島、台東地區發布
大雨特報,民眾不可掉以輕心。

氣象局表示,全台各地從今天起,雨勢會逐漸緩和下來,但北方冷空氣周四起將南下,各地也會出現涼意,平均氣溫下降二到三度,部份空曠地區,早晚溫差可達到五度以上,稍不留意就可能被流感侵襲,提醒民眾外出添加衣物,避免著涼。
