I’ve been visiting Taiwan almost every year cos I love the concert culture there and it’s a comfortable and familiar place for me and my hubs.
Of course, we stayed at Airbnb again. I LOVE this apartment.
It’s a relatively close 5 mins walk from Zhongxiao Fuxing station, has excellent wifi, a comfortable bed, a washer-dryer that works wonders, plus very clean and affordable at $80+ per night.
There’s also a small cooking area that I didn’t take a picture of cos nothing fancy there.
We had sandwiches for breakfast…
Strolled along the streets…
And here’s the agenda for the day: Huashan 1914 Creative Park!
Similar to Songshan Creative Park, there’s many cafes, shops and cultural exhibits here.
There was a local arts fair going on and look at all the zakka items!
These are awfully cute but we don’t need them, so I only took pictures.
I just love handmade stuff.
In Mandarin, we say this adds 温度 (temperature) to the items, which essentially means adding a warm touch to otherwise commercial products.
An absolutely adorable shop selling all kinds of wooden toys and lifestyle products:
Cup and coaster sets with little figurines sitting on them; Serving up some kawaii with practicality.
There’s also a cafe serving small bites and desserts inside.
This is primarily a bookshop…
But also a cafe. I love how they added flowers on the ceiling, kinda whimsical, isn’t it?
An idea that I want to try with Oliver some day…
We then departed from Zhongxiao Xinsheng to Taipei 101.
There’s a No Face gallery going on!
I was really tempted to use the UBike to cycle to Jimmy’s Moon bus just for fun, but we walked instead.
I’ve told you about Jimmy’s illustrated books in my last post to Taiwan and in case you’re interested, you can check out more of his exhibits in Yilan here.
If you’ve read my old posts, you would also know this is the restaurant I’ll visit every time I come to Taipei.
Just for this dish: 苍蝇头~
We ended the night shopping at Wufenpu, which is the closest night market near our apartment~
