Weekend in Instagram

Valentines’ Day weekend was really special for me this year. This year I finally get some couple time to spend the weekend with R without the kids.  We  were lucky that our parents were willing to take care of the kids on our behalf so that we could get the weekend off.

I flew off to Taipei to meet up with R and spend the whole weekend with him.  Our first destination was a private Sakura Tea garden where one could admire the flowers.

On Valentines’s day itself we went to Tam Shui and visited the World Chocolate Wonderland which is situated at Tam Shui fisherman’s wharf. It was the first time that we tried out making chocolate lollipops and it was certainly fun.

It was the first time that I tried chocolate infused pasta and chocolate curry rice. It tasted really unique and I’m sure the kids would have loved to have chocolate in everything that they eat too.

Besides  going to the seaside we also went waterfall viewing. I was fortunate to be able to experience this magnificent view  at Shi Fen.  The last time R and I went waterfall viewing was back in 2013 when we went to Jeju on holidays with Tiger girl.

It was off to the seaside again on Sunday as we went to view the unique rock formations off the port of the seaside town of Keelong.

We  visited a few different mountainsides and seasides and were fortunate to see many many different flowers over the weekend.  It was certainly better then only getting a bouquet of flowers to admire.

Will be uploading the rest of the hundred of pictures which I took with my camera over the Chinese New Year break during the end of this week.

How was your Valentine’s Day weekend?

    It is nice to know about these chocolate infused dishes,wondering how the taste is…..
    Happy Chinese New Year!

  2. It sounds and looks like you had a wonderful time! What beautiful spots to admire! My Valentine’s Day was much less exciting…my husband took our 3 girls to the Valentine’s Dance so I got some quality Me Time. 🙂

  3. wow lucky couple! It was great to spend time with your significant other huh? You two look very happy! The places you visited look amazing.

  4. So happy for you that you got some couple time this year. My husband and I still have not been able to have a weekend together since our kids were born about 7 years ago. I can’t wait til we get to do something like this. You guys are such a cute couple. I love the pictures!!

  5. That was indeed a wonderful time spent together with your dearest. It’s nice that you still spend time together alone even when you already have kids.

  6. This is one thing that I hope that we can do as a couple. I wish I have parents or in-laws who will look after my son so we could have a date. 🙂 I like the chocolate making experience.
