Eat All You Can Yakiniku

My husband is here for 10 days visit. I have no itirinary or whatsoever. I told him, let's just plan on a day to day basis.

Anyways, he arrived last night (almost midnight). Since he has jetlag, we just have late lunch in this newly restaurant near our place called dongzhen baba yakiniku (grilled meat). Unlimited food for 2 hours, not bad for big eaters like us! They have all sort of marinated meat, fresh meat, seafood, hotpot (shabu-shabu), vegetables, desserts, etc...

Traditional Breakfast Store (中式早餐店)

One thing that amazed me here in Taiwan, wherever you go early in the morning there are lots of breakfast store selling breakfast from traditional to western like sandwiches. During working or school days, Taiwanese no need to make their own breakfast instead they just buy in breakfast store. Some of the popular traditional breakfast are soybean (doujiang), buns (mantou), steamed buns with filling (baozi), Taiwanese syle pancake (danbing), fried dough sticks (youtiao). Mostly they open from 6 am to 10 am.

I also notice some of these traditional stores open also in the evening from 6 - 9pm. I guess for those people craving for these kind of food, or just simply wants to have light dinner!
My favorite breakfast store in Xizhi - opens 6-10 AM only (Monday - Saturday)

Welcoming Year 2010

What can I say? Ten years ago, I had New Year in Brunei with my hubby. As far as I remember, I never heard any fireworks at all. We had a little party in his flat, but that's it. We can't even make a noise.

Anyways, welcoming 2010 once again in a foreign country reminds me of the past. For the past 7 years, I celebrated New Year alone. Every year, what I did is to watch the Taipei 101 fireworks from my window. Not much of the fireworks unlike in Chinese New Year.

I've been missing theNew Year in the Philippines. I told myself, this would be the last year of being alone specially in New Year!

I had a call from my husband, chatted to my sister in the Philippines and I was invited for lunch (Taiwanese Family),  then we went for a walk near Taipei 101. I really had a great time, specially I'm with 4 kids.

20 and 10 are my favorite numbers, praying this coming year... that I could be able to join my hubby in the U.S. I like living in Taiwan, but I guess it's about time to move with him, I've been away for so many years! This year might be my last year here in Taiwan.

Here's some photos welcoming 2010 in Taipei!
