Hi everyone,

I'm back from my 4 days trip in Taiwan. Anyone missed me? Well, you shouldn't because as much as  I enjoyed every single moment and pieces of Taiwan, I was so excited to share with you all the things I did, the places I went. I didn't have to, I just wanted to.  Happiness is contagious, we should pass it around. 

This was my very first date with Taiwan, thank to Streetdirectory for making my traveling dream come true. I went for all paid off trip with lot of fun and memories. My flight was at 1am on Saturday morning and expected to arrive at 6.30am on the same day. Knowing that I wouldn't have time for outfit change as we would go for breakfast and sightseeing right after we arrived at our hotel so I decided to wear an outfit that could give me comfort all day long yet still look very casual and chic.

Here was my traveling outfit: Forever21 Denim Jacket, H&M White tee, Sketchers Wedges Sneakers and a neck pillow that saved me from 5 hours flight to Taipei.

Arriving in Taipei on the very early bright and shine Saturday, the city seemed not ready to get up yet, we went for quick breakfast before visiting the first place in our Must-visit list: Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall. 

Still looking fresh after a long- tiring flight despite not being able to sleep during the flight, I was so excited for a photo shoot the moment I saw a magnificent building appeared in front of me. There were many sport activities going on outside: dance practicing,  Tai chi, kite flying, roller skating, etc...and they made me feel less awkward for taking my outfit photos in front of many people.

The photos don't do the place any justice. If you plan to visit Taipei, this is probably a place I would recommend you to go as Sun Yat Sun Memorial Hall is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Taiwan. It's built to dedicate to the "Father of China"- Dr. Sun Yat Sen, lot of historical stories and memories about it.

The massive building 29,464 square metres (7.3 acres) in an open space of 115,000 square metres (28.4 acres) has a performance hall, an exhibition center of about 10,000 square feet, a multimedia theatre, an audio-visual center, lecture halls, and a library with over 300,000 books. Outside the hall, you'll find people gathering for sports and recreations related activities i.e Kite Flying, Roller Skating, Tai Chi, Dancing etc...Life seems to be so simple and happy there. 

Also, when you are there, don't forget to catch the changing of the guards (twice a day). It's an intricate choreography requires much spinning of bayoneted rifles, precision stepping and movement synchronization. I found it very entertaining and impressive to watch.

The heat in Taiwan was killing me, I barely stood outside for more than 15 minutes. After Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall, we joined the locals on their public transport to travel around the city underground. I haven't been taking public transport in Singapore for years but when I'm in other countries, I'm all up for it. It was fun and exciting indeed. 

On the way back to our hotel to rest and to get ready for more exciting activities.

Come back this page again as I'll reveal what did I do on the second day in Taipei in the next blog entry. Stay tuned!
