Taipei Day 2: Taipei Zoo 臺北市立動物園

Read Day 1 of my Taipei Trip (Ximending):

Day 2 at Shilin Night Market:


Finally back to blog about Day 2 of my trip to Taipei earlier this year. Time really flies and I already started school. Finally got my hands onto my laptop to finish up this blogpost! To be honest, if I were to go back to Taiwan again. I will probably go for a longer duration probably around two weeks so I can explore other places like Taichung and Tainan. I personally feel that in Taipei 3 days maximum is enough to visit all the attractions.

So on the second day of our trip, we decided to visit Taipei Zoo! You must be thinking Singapore also have zoo what... so what's the difference.. well you got to read below to find out more haha!


To get to here, you will either need to take a taxi from your place or you can conveniently take the MRT from your destination (just note that it is actually at the other end of the line if you are coming from Ximending or Taipei Main Station, you will be required to change lines in-between. Taipei Zoo is the name of the station (Ikr, they have a station just for their zoo). If you are visiting the zoo, you might want to consider visiting the Taipei Gondola, it is also another attraction right next to Taipei Zoo. To find out more you can check it out here: http://www.gondola.taipei


Here's the picture of their Train map just for your reference. The travel distance took me about 20-30 mins to get to my destination. 


I am amazed that the ticket only cost me NT$60 (Approx; SGD2.60), so much cheaper compared to a regular entrance ticket to Singapore Zoo. If you are coming here on an empty stomach, not to worry because they have Macdonlads inside the zoo. Preferred time to visit the zoo is the morning or the late afternoon because, the zoo is quite crowded even on regular weekdays!


Selfie with Peck and Krystal!


Was playing around with my monopod!! 



First stop was the monkeys! Had a hard time trying to snap their pictures as the pictures are either of them facing their butt towards me or it's them running around places. 


This was my closest to the tiger! So adorable and fierce looking!! 



"Eh don't snatch my food!!!"


Any resemblance? Hahaha


Typical tourist shot! Thought I looked nice in here!


One of the most unpleasant shot, because they were making some "cakes."


Kangaroos! My favourite animal!


There's also a butterfly garden as well!! I kinda was afraid to enter because I'm afraid of insects. Yes, even for butterflies.


Bumped into my secondary school juniors! So coincidental!


Ending off with a picture of myself with white flamingos in my background.

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes). Address: Kim's Family Food (Korean Restaurant) 17 Lorong Kilat #01-06 Kilat Court Singapore 598139 Telephone: 6465 0535 (advised to make a reservation before you come) Entrance of Kim's Family Food  Qin Pin and Qi Man's peace twist sign photobomed this pic!  Full house okay! That's why I said you need to make a reservation before you come, if not you will be queueing outside! Btw, this is just part of the restaurant. The is restaurant is combin

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving  Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt.  You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme.  Ambience: 7.5/10  Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme.  Tropical Smoothies  (Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20  I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-ba

Top 10 Cheap and Affordable Places for Students to eat in Singapore

Most of the time during lecture, my friends and I would be in class whatsapping each other in our own personal group chat discussing about what should we eat after school. (Don't bluff, I bet you done it before too). Usually, we will not be able to think of a location to settle down hence we will end up searching online. Over the entire year, my clique and I have been hopping around places to find the best spot to eat and I have successfully list up some of my top places that we usually will hang out after school. Of course, being students (if you work or not work part-time), we will always be on budget constraint and do not want to spend a lot in a meal. After months of exploration, I would like to recommend some places (you might have been too or might not) that you will probably want to visit with your friends one day! What we usually look out for: 1. Places you can sit and chit-chat for more than 1 hour 2. Pocket-friendly prices (preferably below $25, ranging from $5.50 -
