Visiting with high school classmates:
It is always fun to meet up with the Chin ladies. This time Kang arranged four of us to do a bit biking before having lunch with the rest. After lunch, we went to walk on the campus of TaiDa, and end up going to have crushed ice dessert at TaiYi.
The crushed ice delight:
Along the Bitou Trail:
The trail was actually in repair. Kong and I trans-passed, and had a lot of fun:
After a lunch with fresh sea food, the four of us ventured to hike on the "Nan Zi Lin Trail", where one sees mountain meets the sea:
The tilted tea pot mountain:
Hanging out with Weiling:
Since I was sharing an Air B&B apartment with Weiling, we were hanging out a lot of times. First of all, we both love the traditional Chinese breakfast. So going for that was an essential ritual every morning. There is a YonHe Soymilk shop 5 minutes from our apartment, which we visited almost every morning. But some times we walked a long distance to a place near Weiling's old home when she grew up. Just look how happy she looked when we visited that breakfast place:
Our "regular" breakfast place:
We visited the Lin Garden in BengChow:
Walked through the TaAn Park , Wenzhou Jie, then to Taida: My Junior High was behind me in the following picture:
We went to a night market. Weiling tasted the Oyster Fry for the first time: Felt so much like a tourist.
We also toured the Taipei Central Train Station, and ate some nice red bean pasted filled wheel, and pigfoot.
And we went to Meiping's home in LinKow, then together with Meiping and Wei to Chunggan Retirement Home and ShangSha Old Town:
Weiling and I also took a bus to YeLiu. We visited the fish port, the park, and ate some local crabs.
Hiking and Shoping with Meiping
The hiking on trails near Taipei was not hard at all, very but pleasant.
I spent some time with Er Jie and Hong Tai's family:
Also I had lunch with Nancy before she headed out to Bali for a vacation:
Two weeks seemed so short. But I had a very nice time! Certainly enjoyed all the food.
