After a long drive and a good nap, we finally arrived at Taipei 101, tallest building in the world at that time…

The view up there is really nice, and getting up there is really fast…(less than 60 seconds to 89th floor I think)…

Grabbed some souviners from the shop there…

After a quick tour at Taipei 101, we are supposed to leave for dinner. Street view from Taipei 101 entrance.

Then we were treated to a yummy, delicious – HOTPOT Dinner here…

It was really a yummy dinner and very very filling as we were treated to an endless flow of food! Very spicy as well..muahahah..

After such a long day of travelling then we finally arrived at our hotel for that night after dinner.

Nice and spacious bedroom. Beitou is a Hot Spring area as well, hence, we have a hot spring bathroom built in as well. Nice to enjoy the hotspring before going to bed…

This is were we had lunch. It is very near Yilan and I suppose it’s on the way back to Taipei.

There were lots of dishes, good food, local dishes… It was really great, however, the pics not very nice – so didn’t post!

Yup, that’s the summary of the lunch that day. After lunch we then head back to Taipei, a 1 and 1/2 hour long drive back – which I took to nap…

2nd day at Taiwan, woke up at about 9 as we are supposed to leave about 11 back to Taipei. We stopped at the National Center for Traditional Arts before continuing our journey.

Took a group photo before we went in.

There were a lot of interesting buildings in the center. Very unfortunately, I don’t know what most of the buildings are for…

As well as snacks…

We walked around for awhile and went for lunch at a hill top restaurant… More on that — next post…

Few months back, in January, I was fortunate enough to visit Taiwan because Malaysia won a regional competition for Windows Phone. I am not the winner, but I just get to tag along, because Malaysia won! 🙂

We reached Taiwan in the afternoon, and took a long drive to Yilan – which is a Hot Spring area. We checked into Hotel Royal Chiao Hsi and it was free & easy for the rest of the evening. The weather in Taiwan is only around 12 degrees at that time.

The room is nice and comfy, and it has a welcome card as well…

The area is famous with hot springs, the best thing – you can even enjoy hot spring in the comfort of your bathroom 🙂

Had some time before dinner, so I walked around the hotel – the swimming pool…

Just a short walk from the pool is the public hot spring.

I then went for a buffet dinner with others. And right after dinner, we were treated with an opera show in the lobby…

Was tired after that, went back to my room, enjoyed the hot spring, showered and slept…

Finally got my hardisk fixed self a new hardisk. After spinning for a good long 6 years, it decided to come to a halt. Lost 2 partitions and Windows kept giving me error 😦

Anyhow, this is the 2nd part of Lorraine’s birthday. We celebrated with her friends at Yuan Steamboat, and it’s not just her birthday… It’s a March babies birthday celebration.

Group pic in front of Yuen’s steamboat!

Just managed to fix my desktop – it wasn’t showing the right colors for the past week, couldn’t edit any pictures at all… Anyhow, last Friday was Lorraine’s birthday and we went out for a dinner with her friends. It was a nice and cosy dinner at Alexis.

There were 8 of us that night…

And the food, yummy ~

After we were done with the food, then came the cake for Lorraine…

And we tried to take some group pictures

Of course, I took one with the birthday girl as well 🙂

and lastly, the birthday girl with her birthday gifts…

Happy birthday dear, again 🙂
