It’s the first week of the school holidays. The kids and I are getting used to our new more relaxed routine. We no longer need to wake up at 6am and can have a leisurely breakfast before starting on the day’s activities.

I’m incorporating  more fun activities into their daily routine and ensuring that they get a balance of learning and physical activities.

We will be  going out more often and eating out this school holidays. The kids have lined up play dates for themselves every single week  and are looking forward to all the activities that we have on our calendar.

The kids and I are looking to hit the pool more often if the weather permits.  It’s the end of year monsoon period and it’s raining more often and even daily at stretches.  I guess that we have to catch the pockets of sunshine if we are to be able to go swimming.

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.
