Taipei Trip Part 1 + Apology to my readers

Sorry about the lack of posting, but when your website is constantly being attacked by virus, it is not fun at all! Ever since I’ve moved out from Worpress hosting I have experienced several virus attacked incidents and causing me to be blacklisted by Google. It was heart breaking because it also affected my subscribers, regular viewers and food bloggers friends which I would like to apologise to them. After some research and work, I found out that it was my theme that is actually causing the issue, so I’ve searched for a new theme and hoping this will give me a new start. So far so good, no more incident until now.

Last few weeks, I took 2 weeks off to attend my best friend wedding in Hong Kong and spent 5 days in Taipei. It was strictly a girl’s trip and probably is my last girl trip Sad smile (international) after I got married. I had a really great time with Miss E, Taipei is the land of night market and street food. I still look at the food pic every now and then to refresh my memory.

A dedicated food blogger like me must always start with plane food. I flew with Qantas in the afternoon so we had the lunch menu and afternoon snack. I also had the privilege to experience the new airbus A380, it was awesome!

Once we arrived Hong Kong, we took the connecting flight straight to Taipei, don’t want to waste one more minute, we were offer a light dinner in the flight to Taipei which is a mini vegetarian pizza with fresh fruit and tea.

Our hotel – New Stay Inn, clean and reasonably priced, highly recommended

The next day we went to National palace museum, Xinyi Place shopping centre and Wufenpu commercial district which is a shopping haven for the ladies. Before heading to Wufenpu we needed to refresh ourselves with snack from the food court in Xinyi place.

We end the night at Raohe Street Night Market, my favourite night market because it has full of foods! A lot of funky foods that I’ve never heard of tried. First stop is the famous pepper pastry, it is easy to spot and right next to the entrance. One of my favourite food in the whole trip.

Deep fried milk

We lined up for this deep fried milk because all the travel blog was raving about it, the oil looks really clean and it is deep fried to order. It was piping oil and doesn’t really taste like milk, rather it taste like melted cheese with a hint of sweetness.

We were all exhausted and was carrying too many shopping bags, we took a taxi home then took a rest. Not long later we were starving and walk over to another night market which is just few street away from our hotel for our 2nd dinner.

    Virus attacks suck 😦 That deep-fried milk looks intriguing, though xD I would like to try it even if it does end up tasting more like cheese!
