Traipsing Taipei

Taipei is a small city filled with genuinely kind people. It's been over a year since I last visited the city and this time around I got to explore it more from underground malls to shrimp fishing (yes, it does sound boring but for us it was the highlight of our trip). Endless bubble tea shops and street food stalls never get our stomachs empty.  If only the shops sells spring/summer clothes then the trip would've been perfect. But no complains here, getting this 5-day vacation is perfection enough. :)

Taipei at 3am

As always, we have no itinerary planned before hand, though for me the best trips are of those with spontaneous decisions. Memories created in between the "where to go and what to do next?" will always be priceless. ❤

does Taipei ever have sunny days? ☂

if only I wasn't busy chewing the tapioca bubbles of the bubble tea

I was most excited about going to the zoo since the last time I went there it was already closed. Taipei Zoo is the largest zoo in asia that houses almost all kinds of animals. Too bad we didn't get to see each one, we were running out of time and we need to travel back to meet our friend/ tour guide.

pretty butterflies
a butterfly suddenly landed on BJ's jacket! 
I forgot what they're called, but I love their fur!

the cutest animal ever!
white rhinos!

pandas are so chill
What I love about Taipei is their murky weather. Lugging an umbrella all day might be a pain in the ass but at the very least it's breezy. And the reason why I love to travel is to visit other countries that has cold seasons. I mean seriously, why travel to a place that's hotter than where you're living? but that's just me ;)
