Tried very hard to appreciate the artifacts showcased at the National Palace Museum but I just couldn’t… it was a torturous 2hrs spent inside especially since it was filled with thousands of rowdy visitors. No pictures in the museum itself so this is just a glimpse into what the museum’s exterior is like + the scenery

Happy to move on to our next destination, the highly-anticipated Shilin Night Market! Along the way I finally found a Koi outlet to satisfy my bubble tea craving! Cheap and shiok hehe. Who goes to Taiwan and not drink bubble tea?!

Anyway it was so cold at night! When it was windy I swear I would fucking shiver, even when we were walking along the sheltered areas (high walls on both sides as well). Don’t know how the wind came in oh god…

Weren’t really used to walking that much since it was only the 2nd day so we went for foot reflexology which turned out to be rather ticklish for me thought it was also painful. Nearly got scammed but nah, nearly. Then we took what was supposedly a 5-min walk back to our hotel but was distracted by the shoe shops which were still open at 10+pm and got stuck there for a good 45mins ha ha ha.

Slept well that night, in fact every night, because we walked a lot during the day and there were simply not that many distractions in the hotel. Wifi was quite a pain in the ass to access and there wasn’t anything particularly interesting on the television, except how I found it amusing that their formal news channels tend to intrude on the personal lives of the people featured. More like tabloid than ‘proper’ news reporting.

So yes, anyway, time to sleep and wake up in time for work at 10am because I’m no longer on holiday.
