We brought K to the clinic because she still wasn’t well. Poor girl stayed in hotel the whole of yesterday. So they don’t have polyclinic or neighbourhood clinics like we do in Singapore so we had to go to a hospital. Everything there is in Chinese. :S

Something light for brunch before doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. We were told that all morning slots were full (patients went to take Q number the day before) so we had to wait for afternoon slot.

This place serves up pretty good noodles and meatballs!

After the check-up, we brought K back to the hotel and she fell asleep after her meds. So we went out to Wu Fen Pu (五分埔). Didn’t do much shopping there because it was drizzling so we had to dodge all the raindrops dripping from the shelters. Wasn’t a great experience.

Dinner was at… yes you guessed it – Formosa Chang. Almost everyone who goes to Wu Fen Pu will dine there.

Formosa Chang (鬍鬚張)
Directions: Take Metro to Hou Shan Pi Station, Exit 1. Walk straight along Jhongpo N. Rd. to the intersection of Jhongpo N. Rd. and Yongji Rd. It is across the street, on the right. Watch out for the yellow signboard with the logo.
Address: 533, Yǒngjí Rd, Nangang District, Taipei City, Taiwan 115 (台北永吉路 533号)

It probably was the rain or the exhaustion from too much window shopping, all 3 of us had migraine so we popped panadol together with the braised meat rice. And off we went to Rao He Night Market!

Raohe Street Night Market 饒河街觀光夜市
Directions: Take the Green Line to the terminal station Songshan (松山), exit 5. The night market entrance is just to the right across the street next to the temple. From Taipei Main Station, take any local train northbound (區間車) to Songshan Station (松山), then locate MRT exit 5.
Or, if you are already at Wu Fen Pu, just walk towards Songshan Station which takes about 5 minutes. From there you can see the temple as shown below and lots of people will be heading there so just follow the crowd!

There are more food than shopping at this night market so we ended the night pretty early.

Stay tuned for day 4! 🙂
