04.30 pm – Walked all the way back to Jiufen’s entrance to catch a bus to Jinguashi Gold Ecological Park.
The bus routes.
04.48 pm – Jinguashi Gold Ecological Park.
Little did we know that the place actually closes at 5pm!
With 10 minutes left, we walked as fast as we could to the main attraction of the place, which was the tunnels, hoping to be able to get a glimpse of a real gold mine.
You can tell that the place was very cold from the mist around and Geoffrey’s poking nipples. 😈
Carts used to transport gold from the mine.
The entrance of the building that contained a REALLY HUGE gold bar.
Gold under our legs.
How it looks like under our feet.
Have you ever touched 220kg of pure gold worth TWD 302,271,868?
05.27 pm – Our short lived tour ended and we returned back to Keelung town.
06.18 pm – And the bus dropped us off right at the windy pier near the TRA station.
Crossed the pedestrian bridge to Miaokou Night Market.
06.33 pm – And then we split into 3 groups as the seating area couldn’t accommodate all 8 of us at once. It was very difficult as we can’t bring food from other stall over and vice versa.
This oyster omelet stall is a MUST GO!
06.58 pm – Landed at a stir fried glass noodles shop.
My team members.
REALLY delicious stir fried glass noodles.
Everywhere we went, we just had to have bubble milk tea.
I think there’s something about the quality of milk used.
07.08 pm – Next up was this fried noodles shop.
REALLY delicious stir fried noodles.
07.26 pm – Met up with the rest at the center of Miaokou Night Market before walking back to catch the next TRA train back to Taipei Main Station.
07.36 pm – Notice the lighted alphabets? It’s supposed to spell K.E.E.L.U.N.G.
07.42 pm – Arrived at Keelung train station.
07.50 pm – And we were on our way back to Taipei city.
Toilet in the train.
handicap friendly. So cool!
08.59 pm – Arrived back at the hotel, tired as hell!
Spent about 10 minutes chatting to Vivian all the way back in Penang, Malaysia for free!!!!! All thanks to Android Skype and TS Hotel’s free wifi.
10.09 pm – 1 hour later and we were back in Ximen train station, ready for the night part of our timetable.
10.26 pm – And then we arrived at Taipei City Hall Station.
The building with moving characters that displayed valuable information like the weather condition.
Saw the great 101 shrouded in mist from a distance while walking towards
the Neo 19 building where some of the coolest Taipei clubs/bar (Room 18, Lava, Barcode, Babe 18) were at.
10.41 pm – Room 18 just about to open their doors to patrons.
Our table in the trance room as
the R&B room was fully booked.
Our table nicely fit 8 of us.
05.14 am – Arrived at our favourite after club hangout spot for supper.
How I miss having these while chatting about fun things that happened just hours before.
