台湾吃喝玩乐 Taiwan Trip May 2012 Day 7: Ximending 西门町 and Taoyuan International Airport 桃園國際機場

Saturday, August 10, 2013

After checking out from ECFA Hotel Wan Nian, we headed to ECFA Ximen Branch or 愛客發西門館 (本館) as the ECFA staff refer it as. Reason being - Freego bus only pick up passengers from ECFA Ximen Branch 愛客發西門館 (本館) and not ECFA Hotel Wan Nian that we were staying at.

We left our luggage at the hotel lobby and we went for breakfast at KFC since it was round the corner. Taiwan's KFC has got shao bing etc that is unique to their country.

After breakfast, we took a train to Taipei Main Station to pick up our suncake (literally translated from 太阳饼 tai yang bing) from 李儀餅店 that we ordered 3 days in advance.

Check out the amount of suncake (太阳饼 tai yang bing) that we bought in total! They remind me so much of lego bricks haha.

Saw these freshly-made yam pastry 芋頭酥 when picking up our sun cake (太阳饼 tai yang bing), couldn't resist but to pick up a box of them.

The girls and I decided to do some last minute shopping at Cosmed to stock up on some of our favourite beauty products. For those of you whom are unfamiliar with Cosmed, you might want to check out my post, Beauty Sightings in Taiwan Cosmed to know what to expect from Cosmed.

After that, we took the train back to Ximen Station, got our refund for any leftover value in our Easycard 悠遊卡 (the equivalent of our ez-link card in Singapore).

The Freego bus driver was very kind to help us with our luggage up the bus when he saw that the 4 of us are girls. We had to take a smaller bus from ECFA Ximen Branch before transferring to a bigger bus at a transfer point. The smaller bus didn't have the undercarriage luggage compartment like the bigger bus so luggages have to be carried up onto the bus.

We were famished by then so we grabbed lunch at the airport.

After 4 hours, we landed in Singapore Changi Airport.

I don't know why although its fun to travel, nothing can describe the feeling I get each time I touch down at Changi Airport - back home to where I belong. 

I finally managed to finish my Taiwan Trip 2012 travelogue. Gonna start working on my Korea Trip 2012 posts soon. Super excited to share about my Korea trip with you guys. Till then, stay tuned yea?
