Hello Formosa!12:33 AM
It's officially the start of my one month summer vacation as I am now once again at my second home, Taipei, Taiwan. As some of you may k...
So to begin with, our airport and airplane experience. We fortunately didn't have any excess baggage this year because we had dreadful-pocket ripping-agonizing experience with excess baggage last summer. We paid Cebu Pacific almost Php 6,000 just to get our all our stuffs checked in due to their rule of only 15 kilos and we exceeded that a looot. So story short PAL allows 20 kilos and we had 19.1. Lucky! The only difficult thing I encountered during the trip was having to take care of our bags while looking after Athan. That's why I had to put him in the trolly when we arrived. When we got to Taiwan's airport however Mom was a bit late because her alarm didn't work but we were really glad to finally see her after five long months. Here are some pictures before and after the flight---
When we finally got to our flat here, Mom took us to a mall near by our house called Dayeh Takashimaya to do a bit of shopping and the first thing that caught my eye was a pair of Keds sneakers that I've been wanting to have for quite a while. I originally wanted red, but Mom said it looks too common so I followed her advice and picked this instead--- The color here seems like blue but really it's sea green. :) Plus I'm not the only one who got new shoes, Athan as well got himself a new pair of sandals!---
Whoops! Not girly sandals but really cute one's from Teva. :) Also after buying we headed down to the food court area of the mall to have our early lunch before doing anything else. The difference about the food court here is it doesn't look like the typical crowded ones that we see back in Manila ( I love food courts in Manila too ah!) It's actually spacey and the foods being served are really good---
After eating we headed to MNG at Taipei 101 to buy me some dresses since it is summer and got new cars for Athan to play with. :) So far that's what we did on our first day here. Looking forward to more outings. lots of eating and a little bit of shopping!;)
