Taiwan Trip - Day 4 Part 1

Have been really really lazy to blog recently despite being very free.
Nonetheless, it was our 2nd last day in Taipei and my sister suggested to go 淡水.
We took their train all the way to the last stop. The weather was fine when we reached there.

I'm splitting this into 2 part because I think 淡水 deserve a post on it own!
And I clearly forgot to take photos for my last day in Taipei. Heehee

Below is the scenery that we saw after exiting from the station. Click to enlarge!

We reached pretty early about 11am thus, most of the shops are not open yet. 
But the fragrance from all these BBQ shops are soooooooooo tempting!!

We bought this ice cream which I totally forgot what is called. But we ordered the shorter version as we do not want to fill ourselves to the brim with ice cream~

I shared the mango favour with Nicole. It wasn't the best, but oh well Nicole enjoyed it and that's great!

After walking around aimlessly when most shops are still not open, we decided to take a boat across the bank to 八里老街.

After arriving at 八里老街, we were greeted by the street of foods!!!!!!!

This store sell the best fried finger foods!!
Please go try if you happen to be there!

I LOVE ALL THIER FOODS and the best thing is, 
you get to sample some before purchase!

There is this small vendor at the start of the street which sell lots of yummy pastries! 
I bought the doughnut and find it pretty alright but a little too oily. 

My mum and sisters bought this Yam biscuits and they swear by it! 
They said it was the best yam biscuits ever! 

So, do drop by and try it! This is the only stall that sell this. 
Definitely not a problem to find this stall!

The rain started pouring after we purchased our snacks.
Since there wasn't much thing to shop over there, we headed back to 淡水.

Luckily most shops are opened by the time we reached back.
We went to starbucks to chill and waiting for the rain to stop.

On my way, I finally got to buy BUBBLE TEA!!!
It was super cheap and nice!!!

Also got to try 阿给 which is tofu with some rice vermicelli inside. 
I think it's the sauce that make it super yummy!!

We also made this family zodiac over there. 
I can't remember how much this cost because my mum paid for it. 
The shop 传艺工坊 is located at

Lastly, I had my hair wash and cut at David John Salon.

Super affordable and the service is SUPER GOOD!
You can never find the same standard of service and quality with the price we paid in Singapore.
I only trimmed my fringe and wash my hair. If i'm not wrong it was only NT300!
