Taipei, Taiwan: Taipei Zoo/Muzha Zoo

Our main objective was seeing the pandas!! Apparently all zoos in China have pandas though… The thing with this zoo is that the pandas are still relatively young and supposedly when they were born, a lot of people took off work/took sick days just to see them :O
The train/train station, so cute!
NT$60 for the entrance fee! Forgot if there was a student discount or not. I don't think so because ours was from China.
Onigiri for breakfast, still obsessing over these, but I don't get them as often anymore.

Anyways, don’t really know what to say, so I’ll just spam you with animal pictures. My camera started dying at this point, so they're mostly phone pics :(
Tried to be artsy
We went on the gondola lift afterwards. I thought were going to go to this cliff or some scenic place but it was literally just a cable car ride, so even now I don’t understand why we went on it. At least it was Hello Kitty themed.
We shared our car with this old couple because it was kinda rush hour so we couldn’t go on our own. Apparently they were criticizing (?) us in Taiwanese because we were speaking in English O_O? 

So next we went for dinner at Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐), which is right at Taipei 101.
Saw this and thought it was a Michelin star restaurant, but turns out only in Hong Kong!! So misleading.
They're known for allowing people to be able to see the food being prepped.
They’re known for their 小笼包 (xiao long bao - soup dumplings). But we had lots of food as well. I wouldn’t say it’s the best restaurant I’ve been to, but I think given how we haven’t had a proper meal in a while, it’s was really good. I would give it maybe a 4/5 food-wise.
We wanted to go up Taipei 101 but the line was massive. You have to wait for 1-2 hours to get tickets and then another 1-2 hours in another line to get in. Just look at this from outside and call it a day hehe.

So we went for dessert instead…at Dazzling Cafe. 

So good…..why don’t we have this in the States…. -drools- Truffle fries were ok. They were kinda soggy. 

Went to Shilin after, which I just combined into one post [here] since it’s easier that way ^^;;

Okay, almost done with Taiwan, just one more to go...
