Despite going to bed in the morning at 5am from our KTV session the previous night, we managed to wake up quite early! haha 😀

What a Sunny Day to start with! the weather was extremely HOT!!!

that’s the train station that is just beside our hotel 🙂 damm near~~~

the first stop of the day will be Long Shang Temple 龙山寺… it’s one famous temple in taipei.. lots of artists went there too! We’ll be taking the train 捷运 there, so we’ll need to purchase our tickets for the ride!

After we’re done with bao pi liao, we took a train over to the East Metro mall (东区地下街) located underground at 忠孝敦化 station as it’s still early to head to the night market… this is the place where all the ladies will go gaga about! as there’s alot of shoes for them to buy.. and all are dirt cheap.. 2 pairs for NT399! which is ard $8 for a pair of shoes!

waimeng requested me to take a pic with the lady sitting beside me…
