Taipei 101 indeed :)
Taipei 101 indeed :)
It was long weekend in HK this past week because of the anniversary of the British Handover of HK to China and as with most foreigners living in HK, it's a good excuse to get out of the country. So I found myself (along with Stephanie who works in China so didn't have any holidays but took some days off to travel with me, I am flattered) on the first flight, literally as our flight with China Airlines is at 12.15 am (midnight!), to Taipei. Our friends in Taipei advised us that arriving at 2:50 am in Chang Kai Shek international airport will leave us with no choice but take the cab into the city that needless to say costs an arm and a leg (which is roughly 1600 New Taiwan dollar = 400 HKD) so that wasn't an option (Haha!). We were determined to wait for the first bus at around 5 am but a very nice Thai flight attendant with China Airlines informed us that we weren't completely doomed to sleep in the airport (yet again?! Some people wait and get upgraded to business class, I have had no such luck.. I just wait and well, board the late plane) because one bus company operates 24 hours to Taipei City Main Station where we can take a cab (this, we can afford) to our friend's apartment. First Impressions: Before anything else, I think it's quite unfair to a city for a foreigner to arrive early morning (read: 3 am) when everything seems to be at rest and draw an impression right there. Chang Kai Shek Int'l Airport wasn't quite as impressive as HKIA but I guess, that's my first mistake I compare everything to HK. Well, it wasn't bad either, just empty. Thankfully my dearest Stephanie is a native speaker so we found our way to the bus and on to Taipei City. Oh, that first bus in Taipei is business class-- we were joking about it since the entire bus could probably only seat 20 people because the seats were all couch-like and the leg room is ahhhh.. you frequent (economy) flyers know what I mean. Haha. We pretty much spent the rest of the morning sleeping in Elvina's very spacious apartment. As with everything in Taipei, from streets to apartments, everything is more "normal" than HK. Day 1: National Palace Museum Our first day in very sunny Taipei was for "culture". The city looks so much like Jakarta (and Manila) in the daylight except that well, it's cleaner and more organized and the transport system is quite good-- save for the fact that bus routes were in Chinese (Steph was more help than the Lonely Planet =P) and MRT stations are miles apart (as should be but the amazing transport system in HK spoils its inhabitants that we become used to MTR signs every 5 minutes and convince ourselves this should be the norm). We hopped on a bus to see 15,000 (rotated for viewing every 3 months) of the massive collection of 720,000 Chinese historical artifacts on display in this museum thus, making this the center of the study of Chinese Art. As I was looking around, I can't quite imagine how they managed to transport all these priceless & fragile pieces out of China in the time of communism. The Palace grounds is also home to the Chih Shan Garden (after all, what palace doesn't have a garden) with a little pond where black and white swans swim around. It was quaint and tranquil. A nice place to catch your breath and thoughts away from the scorching heat of the Taipei sun. As most of you girls in Asia, the Meteor Garden craze would be quite a familiar point in time. My sister is crazy about them and I tell you, she isn't the type so I was quite astounded at what these Taiwanese cuties can do. Anyway, I heard (as I never got to watch the show-- I was in Jakarta then and was too busy being homesick) of a scene where the 2 main characters had a date over ice cream in this funky resto where the tables are in real cars so you basically eat inside the car (I don't know how to fully explain so refer to the photo). We searched high and low for the bus that goes there and believe me, it was no easy feat! When we got there, the place is called PS Bu Bu (yes, I have no idea why?!), it was all worth the trouble. Really cute place and the Oreo (I buy our own products eh?) milkshake was beyond words, with a piece of cheesecake smothered in choco syrup to boot. My day was made. :) Day 2: Yangming Shan (which translates Mt. Yangming) This was a day for the outskirts of Taipei City. A bit of greenery to rest our eyes from the skyscrapers of HK. I'd say, after Guilin & Yangshuo (I know, I shouldn't compare but I can't help it!), it's quite a task to impress me in terms of mountainous views. So Yangming Shan was okay, not particularly impressive and I'm sure not representative of the many beautiful places of Taiwan. But this day was very special. More than the place, it was the time I spent with Steph, laughing about the most obscure things and tragedies (she broke her sandals as soon as we hopped down the bus so she was dragging her feet for most of the mountain!) to finishing each others' thoughts to &quo
Our first meal at Chengdu Airport & a yucky one indeed
Our first meal at Chengdu Airport & a yucky one indeed
We were led by our first China tour guide to a big room which supposedly served buffet-style meal to pilots (& indeed some came in halfway through our meals). While RMB15 each was not exactly a lot, that was probably the most yucky meal I had during this trip. However, given the extremely dense fog & accompanying poor visibility, & the seeming absence of restuarants or even snack bars at the airport, it really saved us the hassle hunting for food. While waiting for our badly delayed domestic flight from Chengdu to Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport, I spotted a cafe with a big signage indicating that they sell ???? (imported coffee). The coffee was horrendously expensive (RMB138 for Irish Coffee & that was not the most expensive). Despite that, it was jam-packed with loaded passengers, mainly Chinese nationals, waiting for their delayed flights. Btw, if you intend to fly in wintry months from Chengdu, please be prepared for flight delay due to bad weather conditions. Except for our flight from Singapore to Chengdu, all our flights were delayed due to the dense fog. However, knowing that earlier flights before us were delayed for more than 4-6 hours & some even cancelled, I knew we should count ourselves fortunate. While waiting for our delayed flights, I prayed in my heart for our flights to fly earlier than predicted though it might still be late. Fortunately, we arrived safely at each destination and our iterinary, especially given the tight schedule at Jiuzhai, was not affected.
