Day 6 in Taiwan - Shifen (十分), Jiufen (九份) & Raohe Night Market (饒河夜市)

back to 十分 for the 3rd time to 放天灯... 

best handwriting award goes to 洪爸爸!!!

1st timer @ 放天灯-ing





got interrupted by a choo-choo-choo.... 



which went as fast as it came... and we were back on track (literally) pretty soon... =P 



 

 


a new tunnel made driving from 十分 to 九份 so much less winding... 


as this was my 3rd time to jiufen, i didnt really bother to take many pictures.... just random one or two from here from there.... =P 



must eat = 芋圆 in 姜母茶 ... with longan as a bonus.... yummmmzzzzz .... 

mad love the popiah peanut ice cream roll too.... 

found my usual 奶油太阳饼 shop and we bought a total of 9 boxes.... 


of which 4 boxes were packed into 洪妈妈's Tupperware box to save luggage space... =D 





this used to be a Japanese ran gold mining factory that had been forgotten after the Japanese left taiwan in 1945... 



super orangey rocks that caused the 阴阳海 to be 阴阳海... =P



we were so full from all the yummilious snack at Jiufen that instead of popping by Keelung Night Market which was a short drive from Jiufen as planned, we decided to check in our apartment in Taipei to take a break in the afternoon

though it was our most expensive stay on this trip at $260.10/night but still finds it worthy of the price as it came with a spacious living room for us to hang out together and was just a 3 minutes walk to Zhong Xiao Fu Xing (忠孝復興) mtr station.... i have to mention that this apartment is also near to a public gym which made my Mr Ang very happy.... 




total of 3 rooms; 1 big & 2 small 


took a short break and it was dinner time..... and off to my favourite night market in Taipei



as we reached rather early at  6pm... there was no queue at this famous 胡椒饼 stall.... so must buy!!!




tried the 药燉排骨 soup.... very very yummy.... 




this was good too.... we had the cheese with egg.... 



poser @ the banana pancake stall.... this one was average only.... not worth the calories... 



this humongous sweet potato balls were also yumzzzz


happy 洪爸爸 & 洪妈妈 with their proper dinner; fish porridge 

and icing for the night for me was this gigantic ducky cotton candy which got me really excited!!!

so huge i couldnt get a proper selfie with it on my own!!!... wahahahaha



literally on a sugar high that night as i ate 99% of it...
