Taipei Day 1 Part 2 ( Taipei Main station & Ximenting )



Taipei Day 1 Part 2 ( Taipei Main station & Ximenting )



So our flight arrived 10 mins earlier than expected!
we finally touched down at 535am and exited the custom at 622am!
We proceed to get our bus tickets from Taoyuan International Airport T2 basement and took West bus 1961 to Taipei Main Station.


Bus Fare : NTD 90 (SGD $3.75)
Travelling time :  45mins to 1 hour.




Check out this video of us checking out from Taoyuan Internation Airport!

#TIP 1 : CHANGING TAIWAN DOLLAR.

Now, remember in Day 1 Part 1 of my blog, I mentioned i'll share with you the best place to change your money in Taiwan?

 One of the best place to change your moolah is right inside Taoyuan International Airport, right after you got your passport scanned and approved, you will see a money changer (there is only 1 money changer at the arrival hall (Terminal 2).
 
DO NOT change at the arrival hall! as their rates ain't that good.^^

The one that we saw right after the custom was
SGD 1 = NTD 24.35
at the point of time, please note currency rates is ever-changing. so kindly use this as a reference only.

Their rates is definitely better than the one in Singapore! that's because in most countries, foreign currency exchange is always more welcome^^


#TIP 2 : WIFI

We rented our wifi from Singapore Changi Airport and our Videographer Oi! Niicky managed to get the promo code and book it for only $15 for 5 days 4 nights.

However, I would recommend you to rent the wifi at Taoyuan International Airport instead^^, their rates are way cheaper than in Singapore and some company like WifiHero even give you 1day of  free wifi for every 4 days that you rent, and can connect up to 16 people.

Their rates are on average NTD 100 / day!
at the point of time, please note that their rates is ever-changing. so kindly use this as a reference only.

#TIP 3 : 4U TAIPEI HOSTEL


This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in Taiwan!

In my previous trip to Taipei, a couple of years back, I have had stayed in both hotel and apartment before, one is plain old and dingy looking while the other one is totally haunted 0_0, But that is story for another time.

ANYWAYS!

 
We arrived at the hostel on the 24th of June at around 8am, feeling really tired and knowing that most of the hostel protocol of checking in timing is 3pm onwards, we were pleasantly surprise when the host offered us an early check in at about 11am .


       
Jeggaing away while waiting for our room, if you are wondering why are we having sandwiches and burritos to eat in the morning, that's because most of the old school eatery in Taipei operate from 11am onwards and the area which we stayed in, is more of like a CBD area, and most local Taiwanese prefer to have their breakfast, the grab and go method hehe but their family mart sandwiches are so delicious as well!!! OMG, they can easily beat any of the cafΓ© here in SG.





This is how our room looks like! Clean, big and spacious!!!



All these for just SGD $153 / pax for 5 days 4 nights!!!


We booked a room for 5 and was given a room for 6, the room thou small, the bed was surprisingly big and spacious!!!😍😍😍 There is 2 queen size double deck bed and 2 single size double deck bed!! Haha we used on the single bed as our chillex area!😁😁😁



The Receptionists were Super friendly, and really made us feel at home! They even offered to bring us for breakfast but we kindly decline , as we had other places to head toπŸ˜…, I love how homely the entire place is, how Convenient it is! Located diagonally opposite Taipei main station, it's jz a 5mins walk away and there is a family mart located right below the building!!!

Mini bars is free for all, and often we will find oversea snacks that is sponsored by the other Travellers hehe and so we also offered our Singapore childhood delicacy "Gem cookies" for the others to try!!!


We spend SGD$153 per person for 5 days 4 nights 😍😍😍!!!

Bellezza Aesthetics Review


Mother's Day is around the corner!! Have you decided what would you like to do for your mum on this very special day?





Hehe I have one very special deal for all of you here!!


Bellezza aesthetic is offering a session of
Tri polar RF V-Lift  facial for $38 only!
 Inclusive of skin analysis scan!


T & C:
- First time customers of Bellezza Aesthetics of age 18 and above
- Valid for Singaporean, PR, S-pass and WP holder only

Call 6223 2533 to book an appointment. 


Ok, so if you are wondering how is the whole treatment process like, you can click on the video below and take a look!!!






Please take note that this is a very lengthy and wordy post, because i was really busy taking video during the whole process hehe so like i say again^_^ if you like to see how the process is like, click on the video above, if you like to read on and find out more about my exp and review, please read on!!^_^





I am honestly Super amaze with how wholesome the entire Tri polar RF V-Lift  process feel! 

Throughout the 90mins, there isn't any moment that I felt "boring" , I mean most of you who had went for facial would know what I meant by "boring"


Most of the "less hardworking" Therapist will cleanse your face, prep your face and then apply mask over your face and leave you to sleep. But not at Bellezza aesthetic, and I'm still in awe!



I like how right before and after my face was cleanse, the Therapist will apply a very nice lemony zen smelling essential oil on her hand and ask me to inhale and exhale as accord to her counting, which is say to help regulate my breathing, oxygen intake and synchronised my body clock.



During my Tri polar RF V-Lift  treatment, which is to slim and tighten up my face, the process was very comfortable, and I was Super amaze with the result in just one session! My therapist actually took the effort to study my face contour before the treatment and tried to "V" line my face as close to my contour as possible. Followed by a hydrating vitamin mask to boost all the vitamins and moisture my face needed!!!



**Which i seriously appreciate it, because I mean, I have seen friends who did Tri polar RF V-Lift Therapy by amateurs, and having to end up with their features such as the eyebrows imbalance!!!**


Just as I thought this is the part where things will get "boring", where I'm leave to sleep in the room till the whole session is over, I heard my therapist telling me, I'll be massaging you now.


😍😍😍YEAH!!!!! The part I enjoy the most about facial is the massage, in order to call it a wholesome experience!




Ok, This is something that truly amaze me,
I was told by Bellezza Aesthetics, that each and everyone of their therapists will have to undergo a series of training to learn Bellezza Aesthetics very own Signature Techniques, understanding how to combine premium quality products with Bellezza’s signature & unique massage techniques, innovate and reinvent exclusive movements in order to deliver exceptional results and maximize product efficacies.
Bellezza Aesthetic also incorporate their very own massage techniques ​
in all cleansing, face, head & shoulder massage and hand treatment procedures!!! which really give me a sense of assurances, knowing that I'm in good hand!!








And speaking about hand! hehe I was totally thrown off track when my therapist proceeded to give me the Silky Collagen Hand Treatment !!!!!! which consists of a hand massage using plant placenta collagen cream and application of a plant placenta hot mask. Great for dry and aging skin, especially if you are constantly doing housework, washing dishes etc! Trust me! your hand is going to thank you after this treatment!!














😍😍😍😍😍 now this is top class treatmentπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

 Hehe so what are you waiting for??


 Remember to pamper your mum this Mother's Day by bringing her to Bellazza aesthetic for this wholesome awesome experience ok!😁😁😁😁



Till next time!!

UAG PHONE CASE


Phone dying as such, due to carelessness is common as phone is basically our source of work, income, entertainment etc.




This is basically how my phone looked like after an accident in the shower hahaha....πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚before I met my saviour : UAG

Yes, The UAG I'm talking about, the one and only company who takes their products to the limit, testing time and again for quality assurance and yes, they even send a phone in UAG casing, up to space and watched what happened here:






Like many others, before I was introduced to UAG, I would always get those $2-$10 casing to "protect" my phone from dirt and scratches, and it has never occurred to me  that I would need a phone casing that can handle the fall.




Yes, you know the fall that you and I fear the most, especially when you got to multitask you work and you adorable pets, or even kidsπŸ˜‚, somehow probability of your phone kissing the surface of the floor is somewhat higher.





😊😊check out the cover I gotten from UAG!
I really love how light their casing are, unlike the conventional casing!





I had chosen white for the particular design, as I felt white is a really chic colour and it matches most of my clothing hehe



Check out the secret compartment!!!!😍😍😍😍

This Super sleek design not only work as a phone protector to cushion the fall, it also work as a card holder, notes holder or a oil blotter holder!!! This is such an awesome design feature especially for ladies!!! Minimal effort to look sleek &chic!







And best of all, the rates are so affordable!!!










This particular design can be brought from their website : http://urbanarmorgear.com


Which is honestly a lot cheaper, if you buy through their website and they deliver by DHL haha I actually received one day after I place the order!😊😊❤️






I will be uploading a live video review on my Facebook on the 16th of April 2016!!😊😊

Do follow my fb page :@imiqq , if you are interested to find out more about UAG Products!!!






Till next time!
