 D A Y   S E V E N

What's up for Day Seven?
小人国 - Window on China

. . . . .

Did I mention everyone in Taiwan keep to the right on the escalator?
They do that 80% of the time, it's not like Sg. Sometimes people won't bother keeping to the left in Sg.

We took a train to Jing-an Station 景安站 and have to take an hr long bus to Window on China.
Coming out of the station, we saw a sushi shop and rushed in to grab some food. In fact I think we bought quite a lot... 

Tadah! Our brunch! :)
We bought 2 rice boxes and many sushi!!! 
 Fennie & I actually brought the same bag we bought in Ximending! :) #Random

Thought that the salmon were cooked just by looking at the colour of it but IT'S NOT! :(
Raw salmon... Anyway, saw the cute orange 'balls' in the bowl??? Those are yummy!!!
When you bite it, juice will squirt out in your mouth! :)

This is the place we have to wait for the bus.
The bus will bring you to either Window on China or Leofoo Village Park.
We wanted to go to both places but realized that it was quite late when we reached Jing-an Station and after having our sushi, it was nearly 2pm.

While waiting for the bus, cam-whore time! :)
Anyway, I swear that we waited for so damn long for the bus to come!!! I think at least an hour!
This is just like probably 1/5 of the total amount of photos we took while waiting for the bus to come, so you can imagine how long we had waited... 

The bus journey is about an hour. 
Please take note, you don't have to top up your easy card (ez-link) to pay for THIS bus.
The bus will stop somewhere for all passengers to buy the tickets to Window on China or Leofoo Village Theme Park plus the bus tickets.
We were quite shocked by the price of the tickets.
Total cost us about NT800 over each. Quite exp but impossible for us not to go because the bus is stopping at some weird places... So in the end we chose Window on China only since it is cheaper!

Finally reached and all of us had a good nap in the bus! :)

First thing when reached! TOILET!
Anyway, I spent quite awhile to figure out how do I use the below tap!
I even pressed the white circle thing stupidly! :( Totally clueless!
You know how to use??? Hahaha!

Answer revealed!!! 
See the gold colour thing? You just need to press upwards and the water will flow out...
Quite stupid design, bcos what if the person's hand is dirty then she will make the sides of the tap dirty too! Not very hygienic...

Start walking around and finding all the cute miniature places....

Toilet, then buy drinks!!! :)

Some performance going on, but not our kind so we just moved on...

Can tell very clearly from the name of this place, so it's all about miniatures! :)
See how the mini the things are! ...

The people will move a little in actual. Very cute! :)

All these vehicles will move as well!

Spot Karen's company, Evergreen!

Car accident!

Airport! :)

Entertainment park!
Actually there is a board to describe each and every miniature but we didn't really read it. All we did was just taking photos non stop! Hahaha :)

This looks like I'm standing at somewhere high up taking a real entertainment park right below, but in actual fact, I'm just beside it.. Hahaha!

The structures of all the miniatures are really amazing. They are miniature but in quite a large scale and very detailed!

See the miniature human! And steps....

Anyway, we went to Taiwan Bank to exchange money and the exchange rate is slightly better than Sg.
Below is how the Taiwan Bank looks like.

Looks like the scene in Sungkyunkwan Scandal! Hahaha! :)

Typical palace in those ancient time dramas. Hahaha :)

This is how detailed it is...

Singyee's panda land! Hahaha :)

Anyway, Window of China is split up into a few different areas, so there is mini Taiwan, China and some other countries...

Taking train to the theme park..

Too too train is here...

A very  nice candid shot of Chris & Fennie! :)

Here we are at the Egypt theme, Nile Adventure! :)

Main attraction over here is the water playground AND..........

If you are wondering why is there a glass sheltered area in the picture below, you will know why very soon! :)

This is the impact of the ride!!! Super huge gigantic enormous water splashing!!!

The photos above not clear enough? Let me show you a video of it which was found on Youtube! 

Everyone will definitely need the poncho and shoes/feet cover!
Even with that, you can see who didn't cover properly!!! Hahahahaha! :)
I'm very dry even after the ride, Fennie as well! I think we are too afraid that our make up will get ruined, esp my eye liner! Hahaha! :)
Yvonne....tsk tsk tsk... Hahahaha!

See Yvonne's sian faceeee...!
Chris was a little wet only.

Fennie & I, YEAH! Full coverage! Hahaha :)

We look kinda stupid in that poncho and shoes cover. And, the shoes cover is super slippery, I almost fell down! Hahaha! :)
It was soooo fun, but we played twice only because it was quite late and we haven't even played/walked through the whole place.

Very caring thoughts of having hair dryer!
Just insert some money and you can use it for 3mins if I'm not wrong.

See how wet Yvonne is!!! I still think it is damn funny!!! :)

A booth for you to buy the pictures, but these pictures are never nice plus totally can't see my face in those pictures!

Another country of miniature!

Tower of Pisa, Italy! :)

Chris trying out funny poses!!! :)

Indoor theme park! :)

Merry-Go-Round! :)

After Merry-Go-Round, we played Bumper Cars for like 4-5 times and played an indoor roller coaster before going off...
Taking the train back to the main exit...

Bye Window on China! Super nice scene when the night falls.

Took the one hour journey bus followed by train to Ximending.
We were all too tired after a day of fun, decided to pack food back into room to have our dinner.
Randomly bought two bowls of Risotto to share and of cos some other roadside snacks!!!

Our risotto, not nice at all! Mr J definitely did a better risotto! ...

Yvonne bought a new burger from their KFC.
No bread, the bread is replace by chicken... Not nice too. Hahaha :)

Not very nice donuts too! Different from the soft fluffy kind we have in Sg.

Most NOT YUMMY 青蛙下蛋!!!
This is the imitation one that I was talking about from my earlier post!
See the cup already knew it was different! I only drank a quarter of it and threw the rest away! :(
Please don't get this 巫记 brand of 青蛙下蛋!

Very sad that the last night we had all the not yummy food other than the usual super yummy 大肠包小肠!
Since it's the last night so spent quite a bit of time packing and sorting out all the things.
We did very crazy things will going to lobby to weigh our luggages in the midnight like 3plus am!
Hahaha :)

Anyway, that's almost all for my 7nights in Taiwan.
I will still be posting a little pictures of Day 8 and rounding up the whole experience I had in Taiwan.

Time to sleep.
It's BLUE Monday again...!
