I’m been uploading photographs from my phone to the laptop for storage and came across these selections from my recent trip to Taiwan with Tiger girl.

It was great to have  waffles and ice-cream for breakfast.  I love eating waffles and do have a waffle maker at home. Unfortunately I don’t take it out often enough to use.

It was interesting to see that they have a wide selection of items which one can order at a cafe for breakfast. It was certainly easy to make sure that one has a full breakfast with the available choices.

When in Taiwan  you have to taste their local Chinese food.   We went to a restaurant when we were  in Hsinchu and got to savor these lovely delicacies.

The xiao long bao served at this restaurant were not as tasty as those made at Ding Tai Fung. Those  are the best that I have eaten so far. If you are in Taiwan do make it a point to try their  star dish.

What  I can say is that their portions that are served in Taiwan are really huge as compared to those served in Singapore.

Tiger girl and I couldn’t finish the portion of Fried rice that we ordered at  Mr Onion.

I can’t wait to go back to Taipei again. There are many places there that I have yet to visit and foods that I want to taste.

Random Blooms- Photographed on Vacation

Every time I travel with the kids  I take the opportunity to snap some pictures with my camera of my favourite subject – flowers.

For this shot I had to zoom all the way in to be able to capture a clear shot of the blooms in the water. I love how the light bounced off the water and illuminated the flowers in the pond.

I spotted this bloom on a tree. It was a really lovely shade of pink don’t you think? I think it would certainly look nice floating  in a glass bowl.

Tiger girl spotted this cluster of mini blooms  in the  garden while we were waiting for a table at a restaurant we wanted to try for lunch.  It was really interesting to see the combination of colors on a flower.

This was a bonus for us. We spotted this bee buzzing  among the Daisies and I zoomed in for a capture.

Have you been looking at flowers too?
