Taiwan: 台中 Taichung PART I

麒麟峰溫泉 [Chi Lin Fong Hot Spring]


Ok, I didn't jump in.

Excuse #1: I forgot to bring swimsuit
Excuse #2: I was not confident enough to join the naked spa area

However, I tried their famous hot spring egg, boiled in their natural hot spring. It was half boiled just like what we normally have but tastes a bit different.



孔雀園 [Peacock Garden]

It was mating season. The male peacocks were busy flaring out their feathers to gain the females attention. I just love their beautiful feathers and elegant appearance especially their graceful walk. What a beautiful creature on earth!








日月潭 [Sun Moon Lake]

Taiwan most popular honeymoon resort. Breathtaking view overlooking the emerald lake and mountains. It wasn't as beautiful as I imagined (from the photos I googled) may be because of the gloomy weather we had that day.




文武廟 [Wen Wu Temple]

A temple built to enshrine and worship 孔子 [Confucious], 關羽 [Guan Gong] and 岳飛 [Yue Fei]

Hi Doreen, first of all, allow me to say I love your half tint sunglasses. I think women wearing half tints always presents that sensual, mysterious, seductive kind of look, ahemm.
Your 'Sun Moon lake pic is awesome. I think its one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
Hey, you change shoes often, huh? One pink pair, one black? Right? Ha ha....see! I really look at your pics. Ha ha.
Wow! Pity you forgot your bikini.....I'll be here everyday, arhaaa ha ha. Stay beautiful, Doreen and keep that smile, Lee.
