And then more food!!!!!

Usually I'll be either lazy or too tired to go for hotel breakfast one, cause I confirm cannot wake up so early! Hellooo the hotel bed so comfy what, cannot blame me!!! But luckily I did went for the breakfast provided by Regent Taipei, because the food was pretty good and the staff there is very nice also! Like will bring you to your table and serve you tea/coffee!! Omg I'm really really missing Taiwan so much!!!

elmo cookie monster umbrella

I think I never show you guys before, but check out my cute umbrella!!

Was raining that day (or actually on most of the days when we were there since it's near monsoon season), so we have to carry umbrella in order not to get drench in the rain!! Very troublesome, hate rainy days!!

tiamsui station

Then we took the metro and arrived at Tamsui!!

tiamsui station raining

We were planning to head over to the Lover's bridge for some chio photo taking but it was raining so heavily when we reached there, that we had to give it a miss! So wasted right!

But we never give up lor, we still hope that the rain will eventually gets lighter or stop so we went to the shopping mall nearby Tamsui but there's nothing much to shop there and when we finished shopping, the rain is still as heavy! Then we decided not to wait anymore and carry on with our plan!!

As the rain was too heavy, we just randomly went to one of the hot spring resort there!

taipei private hot spring (wen quan)

We chose the indoor hot spring, which is the private one!
It cost about 1350TWD (SGD $59) for 2 hours!

Both of us lololol!

We didn't really enjoy the hot spring leh, maybe the resort is not very good or something? Or maybe we are just not used to it. So in the end, we just keep going in and out of the water to take pictures only haha!!! And by the time we finished taking photos right, just nice 2 hours is also up already lor lol!!
