Chasing Flavor, Taiwan

Chasing Flavor, Taiwan


For every out of the country trip, tourist spot and best landmarks are my priority on the list. Taking a self-portrait on one of those is a must just like in my previous trips : Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau.

In my recent trip, I booked a flight going to Taiwan and it gives me an excitement. Why? Beside the fact that it will be on an 'eating vacation', I am thrilled to see the places that I never been before.

Taipei 101 and Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall are the only tourist attraction that I have been. On the contrary, I was able to dine in different famous restaurant around the city. And each places gives me an impression of 'ahhh, so full'.

PS. For the new found friends, thank you so much for being with me on this journey.
