June 03, 2013

(Read the previous Taiwan trip posts here: Day 1 / Day 2 / Day 3 / Day 4/ Day 5/ Day 6/ Day 7-8/ Day 9/ Day 10-12)

Okay fine, so I finally got my lazy ass back to edit the pictures and continue to blog about my Taiwan trip! I aim to complete blogging the whole trip by this week because I've been dragging it for way too long! Now I see my hair back then, I find it pretty hideous lolol. I don't really like it anymore, I don't know why!

Maybe I've just gone past the phase lol. I remember I used to love it alot, but now it's like.... erm... no please. Hahahaha! And I realise towards the end of the trip, all my face looks super swollen too! So not much of my camwhore shots can be use for Day 7 and Day 8 wtf, but don't you worry because there is alot of pictures of yummy food to make up for it! Or if you think that it's not tempting enough, I also have Ran's good looking pictures as well! Hahaha! Okay, so here you go! Our Day 7 and Day 8 over at Taipei.....

My egg!! I think most of you don't know, but I don't eat eggs that are sliced into half!

So I'll usually give my egg that are slice into half (in my ramen) to my friends or people who are eating with me! And after that I'll either order one full egg or I just eat the ramen without the eggs!
