WHERE TO EAT IN TAIPEI : THE 'A' TOP














The A Top. It is located in the southern mountainside of Yang Ming Shan, Taipei  and a thousand meter above sea level, allowing us to indulge in the spectacular views of cityscape and if you were there during the perfect time, you'd be able to capture the beautiful sunset that lies above the metropolitan area and the adjacent mountain area.

The restaurant is reachable via MRT Jiantan station and then by taking a cab. I would suggest that book hours in advance, otherwise you might have to wait for another hours. You can either book table, sofa or private room for special occasion. If I am not mistaken, booking sofa/private room will charge you a minimum purchase of NT 3000. No matter which seat, you still can enjoy the good ambiance and capture the picturesque scene. Don't worry for the ones who are on waiting lists, refreshing and free refill beverages was served to us which I thought was so considerate of the customer service. 

The menu is divided into Western and Asian food. But you can also try the combo menu, which is a combination of both dishes. The price range from $$$ NT to $$$$ NT. Though it may cost you, but it is worth the experience of trying great food with good atmosphere. The service was satisfying for you don't have to wait for long to enjoy the food and the waiter/waitress there are quite friendly too. Do not hesitate to ask them for helping you snap the great moment there :) You can visit their website for further details.

WHERE TO EAT IN TAIPEI: PADDINGTON GARDEN

British double eggs ($250)

Bacon and cheese omelette ($250)

Cacao pancake with mixed fruit ($210)

Original Pancakes


























Spending the previous Saturday with my buddy, Cindy strolling around Dunhua or Dong Qu, Taipei, where you can discover plenty of fancy clothing stores and fancy coffee shops, until the stomachs demanded food and we got tired of walking on heels (I actually). We decided to having a go at  Paddington Garden's dish. The indoor seats were all occupied, thus we had no other options but to choose the outdoor seat, whose lighting turned out advantageous for us to snap some photos while waiting for our meals. What I like about this restaurant is the fast service. I took us no more than 20 minutes to have the waiters served the meals to us.
Cindy and I opted for the all day breakfast menu , which includes beverages (tea/coffee) and pancakes that comes with original, vanilla and chocolate flavor. The dessert was luscious, it's too bad we couldn't finish it because we got no more space. 
For all the menus above, we spent almost $800 including tax and service charge. Not to forget, there is a minimum purchase of $120 per person.

ESSENTIALS

Hi! Posting kali ini, untuk pertama kalinya aku pengen share sesuatu yang belum pernah aku bahas di blog ini sebelumnya, dan hal ini  sudah tidak asing bagi para perempuan, dan mungkin pria-pria saat ini juga sudah mulai menaruh perhatian pada hal ini. Ya. Aku kali ini ingin membahas tentang make-up essentials.

Aku sendiri bukan penggemar kosmetik dan tidak merasa merias wajah itu prioritas ku karena  problem jerawat serta kulit sensitif, sehingga aku tidak bisa menggunakan sembarang produk kecantikan. Sampai belum lama ini aku merasa make-up itu penting dan browsing produk make-up itu menyenangkan. Tentunya aku tidak sembarang memilih produk demi menjaga kulit ku dari alergi dan jerawat. Beberapa produk-produk dibawah ini sudah aku pakai hampir setahun dan sejauh ini aku belum mengalami alergi ataupun jerawat yang parah setelah memakainya. 


  1. 3 Concept Eyes creamy lip color - Pick Me Up
    Recommended karena sesuai namanya, lipstick ini sangat creamy and balm sehingga aku tidak perlu memakai lip balm lagi.
  2.  Bless facial base powder
  3. Pretty Cover gliter shower eyes in basic color
  4. Etude BB Bright Cream
  5. Soothe Lip Care
  6. MAC Haute & Naughty TOO Black Lash- Mascara Double Benefice2in1 Mascara, melentikkan dan memanjangkan bulu mata kamu.
 
 Wish List!
 

 L'Oreal Infallible Eyeliner in black/brown available at Zalora

Saat ini aku lagi butuh eyeliner, karena produk yang aku pakai sebelumnya tidak sesuai harapan ku, dan aku membaca review tentang eyeliner by L'Oreal Paris ini. Dilengkapi dengan built-in sharpener dan smudger, aku merasa tidak perlu membeli yang lain lagi. 

Anyway, seperti yang kalian ketahui dari post sebelum ini, aku termasuk sering berbelanja online. Salah satu online store Indonesia, Zalora belum lama ini menarik perhatian aku. Service yang di berikan cepat dan jika kita memiliki pertanyaan seputar belanja online di Zalora, maka dalam waktu kurang dari 24 jam kita akan menerima jawaban dari customer service mereka.

Jadi tidak perlu khawatir berbelanja disini karena selain servisnya baik, keamanannya pun terjamin. :)

Semoga post kali ini dapat membantu kalian semua! Ciao!
