After my Taiwan trip, I'm definitely few kilos heavier. I'm beginning to wonder how Taiwanese women stay slim. They zip about on their scooter through the streets that are lined with snack bars and street vendors plying delicious food.
While poor Conrad was lying in his room nursing a cold on Friday night, I decided to take a taxi to the night market. So, there I was, wandering about in the night market in Taoyuan district, checking out trendy clothes that were too teeny weeny to fit me. What to do if the clothes can't fit? Why, eat of course!
I normally dislike dining alone but having light snacks by the roadside seemed quite appealing on a cool night like this.I found this little cutie guarding a stall at the market.
The night market here was very quiet on a Friday night. I can imagine the night market in Taipei, which is about 30 minutes drive away, must be bustling and packed with tourists and locals.
Steamed groundnuts and other snacks for sale.
Locally grown strawberries glaced in a sugary sweet coating.
Popular fried street snacks.
I ordered a bowl of noodles topped with pieces of fried fish and vegetables.
I also tried a small bowl of gooey seafood soup.
