Taiwan, here we come!

I've been missing since my last post, where have I been?    Ha ha .. since after my leisure trip from Taiwan, I had been very slacking with low energy/ motivation level to do anything especially work, guess I still imagine myself having a good time in my holiday.  Thank god for the Thanksgiving festival, most of the US calls/ meetings with the US folks had significantly cut down.  I am glad that I have the luxury to slow down and give myself another break.  Yahoo! 

The free and easy trip to Taiwan was fantastic!  Guess I enjoyed so much so that I wished I could continue my stay there and not to come back.  How nice if I could?  The only disappointment was the weather, Taipei rained most of the days we were there and therefore, we couldn't do much of the outdoor activity.  Luckily, Taipei is a metropolitan city and we could "hide" ourselves in the shopping malls .  

Weather in Nantou wasn't that bad, although there was some days with drizzling rain, it came and stopped.  We were able to explore and enjoy the places after the rain went off.  The only regret was the result of the photo doesn't turn out to our expectation.   

I like Taiwan, not just the place, also their people.  Generally, the people there are very friendly and helpful especially the senior folks.  When they knew that we came from Singapore, they were very excited to welcome us.  

This time I went with my hubby and younger daughter, my elder was not able to make it because of preparing for upcoming exam.  We spent 8 days 7 nights in Taipei and Nantou and definitely we had a wonderful and relaxing holiday - much more than we joined the group tour.  I will share more photos in coming posts.  Stay tuned!
