Taiwan Trip Day 15 - Taipei (台北) | Shin Yeh Japanese Restaurant (欣叶日本料理)

15 December 2018

Our final night in Taiwan after more than 2 weeks! I really enjoyed this trip and it is by far the most memorable one to date! To mark a sweet ending to our family trip, we decided to splurge a little and have a good family meal together.

Near the hotel that we are residing in is a popular Japanese restaurant - Shin Yeh Japanese Restaurant which has garnered many good reviews. We happened to chance upon it on our first night in Taipei. After enquiry, we were shocked to learn that reservation needs to be done in advance and the restaurant is usually fully booked! Thanks to lady luck on our side, we managed to secure a table on our final night in Taipei.


Located on the 6th floor, the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant is both elegant and cozy. We were led to our table and wasted no time to check out what's on the buffet line!

Taiwan Trip Day 14 - Taipei (台北) | Cycling in Tamsui (淡水)

14 December 2018

After spending our morning exploring Beitou, we took the train to Tamsui. Tamsui (淡水) is located at the northern part of Taiwan and a beautiful spot for viewing sunset. Easily accessible via MRT (Red Line) to reach the north coast from the city central. There are many things you can do here which makes it a popular spot for tourists.


3pm: We have been to Tamsui a couple of times and this time, and this time we decided to do something different - Biking. Found a Bicycle rental shop that is not too far away away from the train station and the rental rates are reasonable too. We spent NT500 for the rental of 4 bicycles.

Taiwan Trip Day 14 - Taipei (台北) | Beitou (北投) | Beitou Thermal Valley (地热谷) | Quanyuan Park Foot Bath (泉源公园温泉泡脚池园区)

14 December 2018

We planned to start our day for a half day trip to Beitou (北投) in Taipei. Surrounded by mountain ranges and beautiful natural landscape, Beitou is famous for its hot springs and a paradise for joyous living with steaming hot baths.

There are 4 things you must do at Beitou - Scenic Viewing, Enjoy the Good Food, Visit Historic Sites and go on a Hot Spring.


Traveling to Beitou is an ease as it is connected via the city's metro line. Take the MRT Red (Tamsui-Xiangshan) line towards Tamsui and alight at Beitou MRT station (R22). From Beitou station, transfer the pink line to Xinbeitou Station (R22a) which is only one station away where the hot springs area lies.

Stay Home Cooking Ideas - Home Cooked Meals for Family #1

I only started picking up cooking randomly about a year ago and only know how to make a few simple basic dishes - like fry an egg or heat up a can of sardines etc. Hence when Covid-19 strikes, and we are staying home, I realised I have to cook almost every day for my family.

To make things more challenging, I need to plan what to get from the supermarket for the week to reduce our trips. I started taking photos of the ingredients I needed to prepare a meal and also keep track of cost.

I try to keep to very basic ingredients - so for the first week, it is mainly cabbage, potatoes, chicken, carrots, canned food and eggs. Managed to come up with some different variations and keep our tummies full.

#1 - Stir fry Cabbage, Chicken Stew

Sushi Delivery Singapore - Delivering Sushi right to your Doorstep

We are a big fan of Japanese cuisine particularly sushi, sashimi and salmon! At times we have the craving but were too lazy to head out to the restaurant. With the recent coronavirus outbreak in the community, we prefer to have meals at home instead of dining out.

Hence, we really appreciate to have our comfort food delivered fresh right to our doorstep. 


Sushi Delivery Singapore is newly launched in early 2020 and it offers Sashimi & Sushi, Bento & Bowls, Appetizers & Sides as well as Party Sets.
