Wow… it was a long long while ago but well, as I have promised Nicole that I will share with her on my Taiwan trip after I finish working out the photo album, I’ll have to keep my promise. So, lets begin.
I could still remember clearly the mist and the chilled weather the moment we arrived in Taipei. Uncle Jason and Aunt Nancy was there to welcome us, and I seriously love the feel of someone waiting at the airport to welcome me.
We then arrived at Uncle Jason’s house at Yangmingshan. And we are immediately served with apples and pears the size of half my face! Haha, apparently my aunt knew we were coming and reserved the fruits for us! And the eating begins as soon as we drop our bags. We were quickly served with pork meatballs as well as dumplings. *Yum yum* the pork meatballs are almost twice the size of those found in Malaysia which is really bouncy. LOL… ping pong game anyone?
The dumplings in Taiwan are pretty much different from the ones in Malaysia as well. The skin for the dumplings are actually thicker but chewy. How nice of Uncle Jason, who also serve us with pickles that he made himself. And it was really awesome! I seriously thinks it will go well with a bowl of hot porridge. But eating it on it’s own is cool too as it was not salty and still preserves the sweetness of the raddish! Did I not mention that it was super crunchy too? YUM! 🙂
We wasted no time and decided to quickly catch a glimpse of the cherry blossom beauty after we filled our tummy. I guess we were lucky as we are just in time to see some cherry blossom before it withers. Awww… it really is beautiful, and it feels like I’m really in some Taiwanese movie.
