Was looking for a good place to chill, relax and celebrate a friend's birthday, and so we came to d'Good Cafe, located at Holland Village. It's just a few walks away from the station itself.

Arrived at the cafe and it looks gorgeous! Okay la, I was rather "kiasu" because I've never been here before. The counter was a distance away from the area where we were seated.

I love how the cafe is designed, so simple and yet relaxing at the same time! Makes me feel like sleeping 3/4 of the time. Hahaha!

We manage to get this really awesome seat where there's this swing for us to sit on while we're eating. But to be honest, its kinda difficult to eat while sitting on it, cuz.... its just difficult!!!

Then, after we're done eating our main dish, we ordered a small cake for the birthday girl! d'Good Cafe's signature cake! d'Good Triplet Cheesecake.

After we had our fill, we then head to Vivo City to chill and catch up with one another, its been long since we went out together. I hope we can do this more often next time, with the rest of course! :D

Here are some aftermath pictures taken on that day. ^.^

Then off we go to the girls room to see if they're done packing,.....

So much emotions when we were leaving the hostel, the bitter and sweetness of entering and leaving every single day. Now we're leaving for good. :((((

Took their cab (小黄) and its on standard fare. 900 NTD and estimated its around $40 SGD??? We divided by 4 so its $10 per person? Quite worth it I guess???

What's more, the Taxi uncle was nice enough to drive us the longer route so that we can sight see before we leave Taiwan. ^.^

He even told us stories about some of the places in Taiwan, one that I'll never forget will be the 夜总会 (Nightclub). Hahahaha!

We're there early, so we decided to head for breakfast at Burger King.

Bought the Taiwan Yakult from the convenient store at the airport.
So regretted that I only bought 1, should have bought more back home. Now I'm missing it already. :(((

It tastes slightly different from the ones we have in Singapore.

Randomly fiddled with the PC at the airport. Hahaha! Enterted my blog URL in, and the amazing thing is that its fully touch screen. I had abit of difficulty using it though. Hahah!

Featuring my Instax! Teehee!

After that, we head off to the counter to check in our luggage. We were all quite worried that we might exceed the limit of our luggage weight, but in the end, we never exceed. :D

This is the first time that I've gone overseas with a bunch of good friends. I would love to do this more often next time.

I think company is really important, like if you're going overseas with people that you don't like, you won't even enjoy in the first place.

I would love to go Bangkok and Korea next, for Asian countries that is. Hahaha!

Now I've come to the end of my Taiwan Travelogue, this is a rather short post. Hahaha! I hope you guys have enjoyed reading my Taiwan blogposts. ^.^

Now that I'm done writing my Taiwan Travelogue, I'm feeling a tinge of sadness, not sure why, but yea. Oh wells, I'm looking forward to my next overseas travel, I wonder where would I go next? Hahaha!

OHYAH! Before I end, I would like to thank my fellow friend who planned this trip all on his own, without him, I don't think this trip would be a successful one. Kudos to him! :D
