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 Charlie Brown Cafe (Cathay Cineleisure Orchard)

Awhile ago, I was invited back to Charlie Brown Cafe as I was told that they had revamped their menu and there were a few new offerings on their menu. Charlie Brown Cafe now has 2 outlets mainly in Singapore, one located at Cathay Cinleisure Orchard, a popular youth destination, and One KM Mall at Paya Lebar.  The entire cafe is designed in a Charlie Brown theme, if you had watched the movie, Peanuts or you grew up watching Charlie Brown, then you should be familiar with the characters in the show/movie. The entire cafe takes up about 30-40 seats and the ambience was conducive.  Root Beer Float & Coffee Macchiato Shot Mashed Potatoes  Price: $4.20  Made from fresh potatoes topped with gravy and chicken chipolata (sausage). The mashed potato was fluffy and wasn't lumpy just maybe the sauce was slightly overpowering which diminishes the taste of the mashed potatoes. I would prefer if the sauce was lesser. However, it was a great combination of addi

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
