Taipei 101 part 2

As promised...here is the part 2 of our 101 adventure last Sunday. It was dinner time already and we have decided to go back to Ximending District and have dinner at Saizeriya- Italian Restaurant that we accidentally discovered. Click here. We have seen most of the space and enjoyed first class shopping experience in Taipei 101.

After dinner, of course since we are already within the shopping district, it would be a perfect opportunity to burn calories and go window shopping which eventually led us to the Red Building (photos ahead).

What a perfect way to cap of a perfect weekend.

Today is Friday and I have already planned what I wanted to do which is our last weekend here in Taipei. :D

...Goodbye Taipei101. See you soon :D
Picture
(L-R) Myi, NIkki and Z. Us heading home to have dinner
Picture
Just can't get enough and still wanted to capture that perfect "Anne Curtis in MRT" shot :D
Picture
Picture
Everyone strictly abides by the rules...reason why MRT system is very clean. Fine is very expensive...hehe
Picture
Ximending Night Market...we just arrived and just look at the volume of people during weekends. So packed...maybe one of the reason even at night time it is still very humid...but I am loving every minute of it whenever I am here. :D
Picture
We arrived at Saizeriya, I was very hungry. had our names on the guestlist and just waited for 10 minutes. Got this lovely seat by the window...overlooking shoppers
Picture
Yehey...food!!! We have Seafood Paella
Picture
Spinach and Pasta
Picture
I ordered the same as the last time...my favorite Pizza with spicy sausage and sweet tomatoes
Picture
Chicken for my daily protein needs
Picture
Since we were within the area, Myi and I decided to burn a little unwanted calories; then found ourselved here at the Red Building. Remember, I told everyone that I will share what is inside this building...here it is ;D
Picture
Once you enter, there is a mini-museum
Picture
Blast from the past...
Picture
...really really old calculator. I am not really sure what is the museum all about since I can't understand Chinese but definitely it is showing a very rich culture.
Picture
They even have coffee shop, just in case you wanted to relax a bit
Picture
This is the plan view of the Red Building, I studied building architecture as an Interior Designer and most of the plans that used this floor plan are Catholic Churches. Makes me wonder, in a Buddhist country, there was a huge Catholic Church before...who knows :D
Picture
Souvenir Items...very cute. Their heads wobble
Picture
Building made of computer chips
Picture
Picture
Going further inside, there are more specialty shops to explore
Picture
Picture
...who wants a giant potty like this???
Picture
Picture
Picture
Taipei 101 replica made of chips...really ingenious
Picture
After we had our "tourist fill" we decided to head home and rest for work. I took photo of this very cute Lab. I think it is very old and overweight but is really really cute. Whenever I see him, it just lays down on the floor. :D
Picture
It is now Friday and have already planned a couple of things to do over the weekend. Team Manila may have separate plans...

I will be going back to Shilin Night Market tomorrow and hopefully to explore other night Markets on Sunday. This is the last weekend I will be spending here. We have already arranged rebooking our flight back to Manila on Saturday...I just want to spend my last "Tourist days" here in Taipei with a bang.

I will see you guys next week to update with my weekend adventure. Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

Ciao. :D
