How's Taiwan ??

Time flies, I am here for 2 weeks already,
well, How's Taiwan ??

Hmm, very fattening !!!! LOL!! Lots of foods and snacks all around, plus my suite and campus are located at the busy district where there are lots of restaurants, snacks stores and night markets around.

First week here was quite fattening, went to a few famous restaurants in Taipei with my senior and friends.

The first one was the very Famous " Dazzling Cafe " which sells Honey Toast !!
Well, basically , you will need to wait for 1-2 hours just to get a seat in there, and 1 more, due to the crowd, they have time limit for you to finish your food, 1hour and 30min...
I was like "WHAT?!! Time limit"!! but I am kind of getting used to it as I explore more of the famous restaurant in Taipei.
Yeah, sitting out there and wait for the queue. Darn,
it's freaking 2 hours. 
But luckily, I wasn't the poor one who waited there from 5pm-7pm.
Friend was the one. HAHAHAH

Here comes the toast!
There's one more rule in the restaurant, no matter how much you spend, you will have to order a special drink from the menu.

My fruit tea XD 
NTD 150 If I didn't remember wrongly.

                                                              230 NTD (approximately)

290 NTD (approximately)

My banana toast. NTD 320 I guess?? 
Couldn't recall the price. 
I can only remember the total, I think I paid 450 NTD (Rm47) for my own portion. 

We went to "XI MEN DING" for Midnight Karaoke after that.
钱柜 PARTY WORLD,it's their famous / common Karaoke in Taipei. The size of the chain stores is something like Neway in HK, you will see them all around in Taipei.
The time limit for midnight session??? U know what, there's no time limit, you sing all the way you want, they charge by hour.. XD awesome..

 Lobby and Reception of Party World.

Lots of people during midnight session.

U know what, there's a funny fact, by law, Karaoke will not let you in for midnight session if you are under 18years old...  U know why? Because sometimes there will be police operation during midnight, I was like what?? Operation at Karaoke box??? Yeah, law of Taiwan.
and guess how lucky I was? There's a operation on the day I went XD hahahahah.. Well, no worries, I was old enough to join the midnight session.

We ended the session at 4am I guess, imagine from 10:45pm - 4am ? LOL I was kind of "fainted" when I got home.

We Went to another famous restaurant the next day, which is DEJA VU,  Guess who's the owner?
It's Jay Chou.周杰伦。
Located at "Zhong Xiao Xing Sheng "忠孝新生, Taipei city.

 The reception.

Well, you can find his style from the design of the restaurant, Old english, Ancient. Mysterious.

The stage for performance XD there will be magic performance at certain times.

Live singer.

His "Bat Man" car. 

Bakery I guess?

Magic Performance in the restaurant,
you will get to see it if you go at the right time XD
So we were quite lucky as our dinner time matched with the show time. 

Opps, yeah prices?
It cost around Rm40 ++ average or above per dish.
It's basically all italian food, taste ? I will rate it for 6/10. 

So How's Taiwan ? So far so good!!!

Checked in National Taiwan University (NTU) 台大

Aw, it's kind of a mess here for the first week in NTU,
I have some problems with the classes ... well, screw it, not gonna talk about it here.

HAHAHAHA, finally, here comes the blog post about my Campus in Taiwan.

National Taiwan University, It's the most famous and also the top university in Taiwan,
I got the info from some Tv programs, it's a pride for Taiwanese if they can study in NTU.
Some sort of Uni for the intelligent people I guess? XD
The university has 11 colleges, with 54 departments and 103 graduate institutes, plus 4 university -level research center. Therefore, you can imagine how big the campus will be.

For example, 90% of the student will be cycling around the campus instead of walking,
too big, for example , it took me 15-20min walking distance from the main gate to my classroom.
I spent an hour walking around the campus but still didn't manage to explore all parts of the campus,
so I am gonna show u the places that I had explored in the campus.

p/s: that's not all of the campus, just partly, I was dying half way walking around, LOL, forgive my laziness.


view from the main gate, it's located at a very convenience district.
Gong Guan.

                                                     Bikes were everywhere in the campus!


bikes again ~~


There we go, the Royal Palm Boulevard, 椰林大道。
it's kind of a main road in NTU, it links with all of the roads to all of the departments. 

and it's linked to the NTU library too, just all the way straight from here!

reaching the library...

Here is it, the NTU library!

What i love about the library was the 24hours study room in the basement!

 Let's move to the next stop.
landmark in the campus, the fu bell. 

and what's this ?

The administration building of NTU

the inside of the building... green~~~

 Here we move to the Liberal Art Research Building. 文学院。 
In NTU, there are a few buildings that are full of classrooms and it's open for all the courses
of all of the departments, so we don't really have our own classes in our own departments.
We will have our class in the student classrooms in NTU instead.
Liberal building is one of the student classroom building too.
I love this the most because of it's architecture XD

there's auditorium and classes for students inside the building.

The other entrance of liberal art building.

what's next?
I am gonna show you the most chilly area in NTU.

The Drunken Moon Lake.

Chilly~~ you can chit chat , gossip, tea, or lunch 
with your classmates here during lunch hour or breaks.
A refreshing place XD 
But too bad, I don't have any classmates yet T_T 

       And this is XiaoFu 小福, a small student activity building, where the convenience store, book store, restaurant and cafe are located.

Another student activity center.

bigger one.

Cafe and restaurant.

Student lounge 

Some art work? 

Next stop will be the Sport Centre.
the NTU sport centre. 
so sport lovers... love it?

Tennis court i guess XD

The running track.

Last but not least, the last place I visited was the NTU farm!!

Yes, it's a FARM! 
Agriculture experimental farm.
For the department of agriculture .

LOL, this campus is seriously big!
Remember, all these are just part of the campus,
I haven't really explored the whole campus yet. 

AHAHA, yeah, grabbed a new heels during lunch hour today XD 

That's all for today I guess.
Bye bye.
