Hello Kitty Cakes

Too bad I didn't get a chance to try these cakes... I was already so full from our dinner that I didn't think of ordering a cake anymore. :-( Besides, I didn't know what to order, they all look so yummy.

Now, I'm regretting it! I should have tried it and not think about my sugar level. Oh well, maybe on my next trip to Taiwan.

Hello Kitty Kitchen and Dining

This restaurant brings back childhood memories... I love Sanrio products especially Hello Kitty, Little Twin Star and Zashikibuta. So having our dinner here is a must!

Modern Toilet

A visit to relatives in Taiwan, this is where they took us for lunch... Modern Toilet is the name of the restaurant. Do you think you will ever eat here?

Our hot pot soup...

Our drinks and bread...

And our dessert...

The food is actually not bad, and the price is right.

Off to Taiwan

Again, I am going on a trip without my kids and my husband... the first time was to Bahamas last January 2013... this time I'm off to Taipei, Taiwan to attend my cousin's wedding. It's going to be a short trip since I can't leave my family any longer than a week.

Anyway, last time I saw my cousins in Taiwan were in the summer of 2008, during a 4 hour layover from our trip to the Philippines. It's time to spend more quality time with family.

So I'm off to drop off my kids to school and then I'm off to the airport to catch my flight at noon...  Lord, please keep me safe and bless me on this trip. Thank you!

The Old Ways

Ever wonder how they iron clothes during the time when electricity hasn't been discovered yet? This picture tells you how... By rolling the clothes on the "pin", one uses it's feet to move back and forth to iron out the clothes.

And this was the "palikuran" or bathroom. It got holes on them so that when you poop it goes straight to the pig pen which is situated just below the bathroom in most houses.
