Last week we brought the kids to Gao Mei Wetlands at Taichung, Taiwan. It is my 2nd visit to the Wetlands as I previously visited the place with R when I was there in April. This time around we brought the whole family there to enjoy the scenery and watch the sunset.
The kids were happy to go crab and mud skipper spotting that afternoon and were looking forward to playing a round of ” fastest eyes” to see how many sea creatures they could spot on the way.
They were fascinated to see mud skippers flipping around on the surface below the boardwalk. I didn’t take a picture of the mud skipper as it was the same color as the greyish mud it was in.
I took pictures of the tiny crabs instead. This time we saw more female then male crabs around.
I guess that it is mating season at the moment as we were treated to a live crab fight while walking along the boardwalk.
It was really interesting watching the two crabs having a go at each other. They were chasing each other and planting jabs at one another. Most probably there was a potential mate waiting at a distance for the victor of this fight.
The weather was really nice. It wasn’t as cold and there was a slight breeze.
It was high tide when we were at the wetlands so we didn’t see anyone going down to have a walk this time.
Gao Mei Wetlands is certainly a lovely place to visit. A great place to soak in the scenery while watching the sunset.
It has been awhile since I last shared what we have been eating. Here are some snapshots of both homemade dishes and meals that we have while eating out.
The kids love eating sushi and would request for it weekly. It can be quite costly buying it from the store so on occasions we would make our own at home. The creations above were done by Tiger girl with the assistance from grandma.
The kids love chocolate chip muffins. Here are some that I baked recently baked using Almond flour. I’m switching away from using traditional flours for my bakes and changing to Almond or Coconut flour instead. The recipes that I use nowadays are no sugar ones as SUGAR is one of the main causes of weight gain and healthy problems.
This was one of the dish that I ate when we went out on Sunday. I normally order a smoked salmon salad however that week I decided on trying something different. It tasted rather yummy and refreshing to me.
This is something which I have occasionally for breakfast. Bacon and eggs and Bullet Proof Cocoa.
This is the traditional breakfast that the kids enjoy eating when we go out for breakfast. Kaya Toast bread , soft boil eggs and milo. It is not really healthy so we only have this during the holidays.
This is one of the dishes which I have added onto our frequently cooked meals. Cauliflower Fried Rice where cauliflower is used to replace white rice. It is really yummy and filling for dinner.
