The sky was this bright at 530am in the morning wth I freaking jumped out of bed cos I tot we were late.. (we booked a private driver who’s supposed to meet us at 9am)

image

While im at it, room view!! I guess we were pretty lucky cos my dad and bro’s room doesn’t have a city view haha

image

Went downstairs for our breakfast buffet!!

image

image

image

image

image

image

Walked around the area a bit cos it’s early but all the shops aren’t open yet cos it’s like 8am

image

image

Nice packaging, lousy coffee

image

It kept raining today sobs.. anyways off to taichung!

image

Arrived at lavender cottage!

image

image

image

I think it’s damn smart to open a cafe on top of a mountain, people don’t even have a choice haha must eat your food even if it sucks lol

image

image

image

image

First things first: eat. And to be fair, the food is quite decent la

image

Exploring all their attractions
