Second last day in Taiwan!
So much drama after much suffer from food poisoning and indigestion while visiting the country.
Seriously didn’t see that coming since we planned to see many more places within Taiwan itself *sighs*
I got better after getting some medication the following day (it was too horrible to describe it here) and headed out to see Dansui!
Even though we didn’t meet up with my friend who is staying there, we still decided to walk around the place and say our last goodbyes to the area before flying off the next day.
Here are some photos of the place 🙂
Some pretty delicious looking cupcakes which I couldn’t even eat on that day 🙁
Outside Taipei Main Station before taking a train to Dansui
Busy street in Taipei even with the rain
This is how the building looks like from the outside
ANDDDD THEN! Welcome to Dansui 😀
A total different feeling of the place as compared to the city
Performers and people all around the place
Shopping and food galore! However, since I just recovered, I can’t eat ANYTHING! *huff and puff with irritation!*
Anyone can ride on these with a fee of course 🙂 Since my head was already feeling all over the place in the train ride over, riding in one of those is just suicide for me 🙁
A misty view of the buildings opposite the harbour 🙂
One recovered from food poisoning and one from indigestion taking a selfie without a care :p
So basically, we just walked around Dansui for about an hour plus before heading back to our hotel.
Didn’t do much because my mind was busy floating around while we were in the train.
Before I created any unwanted scene in the train, we got back and rested more.
The day after, we still had some money left and I bought myself a MIFFY pillow! Hehehehe..
I just couldn’t settle with the fact that I wasted a few days in the hotel ill without the chance of seeing other new things that Taiwan has to offer.
So sad 🙁
Here’s a photo of MIFFY! *grins*
Doesn’t it look round and cuddly? Hehe!
Packed everything up and checked out of the hotel.
Said our reluctant goodbyes and left for the airport.
I can honestly tell you that we were jinxed mid way of the trip.
While checking our luggages before boarding, our bags somehow managed to become overweight!
You know…. My last trip in Taiwan the previous year…. I carried way more heavier things as compared to this second trip.
To have that lady at the counter saying that my bag was overweight just gave me a shock!
I had to do the pack-and-unpack-walk-of-shame in front of everyone else *sighs*
TMI: Thank God that I had decent looking panties and bras in the bag (just in case anyone saw ANYTHING)
SO! I created MAGIC!
After much repacking done, both bags we underweight by 1kg (if I’m not wrong).
Being satisfied of not needing to pay additional cost for overweight bags, we headed to the check in point.
The officer said that we couldn’t bring in our camera tripod onto the plane.
It was the most fantastic experience that I had.
Went back to the luggage check in point and weighed that bugger.
And guess what!?!?!
We went overweight AGAIN with that stick!
So both of us got fed up and paid the penalty for our overweight luggages.
Our pockets were empty after payment and nothing left to even purchase something to munch on (not even enough to get a bottle of water) -_-
We took it as a sign that we shouldn’t be returning to Taiwan for a third trip anytime soon.
That’s a wrap on our second trip to Taiwan! 🙂
