Reporting from Alishan now. Weather here is great. We saw the sea clouds, the sunset and the clouds fall and lots of bright twinkling stars yesterday. Today we had the sun rise and a very good weather for hiking around ALS. Unfortunately sunset was cloudy today and a few stars only. Current weather 13 deg c.

Taipei weather sucks. Of 5 days I was in there, it was raining in 4 days, 1 cloudy. 2 of the days had heavy rain and strong winds which bent my umbrella out of shape when I attempted jiufen on that day. Can see nothing there except lao jie.

So according to the owner at the minsu where i am staying now, its the time for Alishan, Kaosiong region. Skip hualien and taipei... keep those for spring/summer.
wah..u realli go alishan
hope nvr disappointed u,btw wic minsu u taking,wanna try it out next mth my my frds

Is tw selling those comestic cheaper ?
Like : Kate, MM, Etude hse, faceshop, bodyshop, js ?

Can i know where etude hse n js located which is near to xmd ?
thanks..
From my experience, "Asian brands" like MM, Faceshop, Skinfood are much cheaper in Taiwan than Sg. eg the MM mascara seeling at S$16 in Taiwan's Watsons but sold at S$25 . here For S$10, u can get 4 faceshop masks in Taiwan.
Have not been to Etude house and Js in Taiwan though.

dec coming liao...still got typhoon......

氣象局研判,現在台灣附近海面氣溫都偏低,不利颱風及熱帶性低氣壓發展,輕颱妮妲與菲律賓東方的熱帶性低氣壓,影響台灣的機率很低

lucky the temperature dun allow the rise of typhoon
