(Taipei 101 from my lunch table)
Nihao from Taipei! I’m sorry for not having been as active on Twitter and so on, but I do try to reply to comments, and if you have any questions I am more than happy to answer as fast as I can. I hope you’re having some summer fun, and that the scheduled posts are keeping you somehow entertained. I’ll try my best to show you what I took with me and so on soon, but before that I’m showing you my new perm and other fun stuff!
This, my friend, is the close-up of my hair halfway through my digital perm. The whole thing looks like the following picture. Please excuse my face. I was badly jet-lagged and my eyes got SO dried out on the plane that they were puffy. I swear I normally don’t have bags!
Fun eh? Here you see my hair right after the curlers were taken out. Don’t worry because it certainly didn’t look like that anymore once they rinsed it out!
Are you curious to see how it looks now? This is an FOTD my friend took for me after my Cle de Peau experience. The lady cleaned everything but my eye makeup off (it’s just Eyes to Kill #25 used wet as a thick, winged liner. I’ll do a separate post at some point, but for now I’d encourage all of you glass-wearers with monolids to give it a try), and I was mesmerized by both how perfect my skin looked for the rest of the day as well as the intricate ritual the brand offers. I got something (Translucent Corrector. It’s basically a pore minimizer) and I’ll review it once I have assessed it properly!
Din Tai Fung is a local restaurant that is the most famous for their soup dumplings. It has expanded to many big cities around the world. If you live near one you really should go at least once!
The soup dumpling makers. They have a very very precise process for weighing out all the ingredients. Even the number of folds on each dumpling stays the same!
What you find on each table for the tab. I like how cute this little dude is! His head is shaped like a steamer!
Yummy dumplings. I can eat them every day!
Bubble tea is a sensation in many countries, but did you know it is originated from Taiwan? The tapioca pearls are chewy, and you can put them in many different drinks! Here they are sitting in my tea with milk 🙂
Gin Ger is a local skincare brand that I am immensely proud of. They use ginger (duh! Haha) in all of their products that is cultivated locally. My favorite so far is their hand cream!
Last but not least, the fountain outside of Taipei 101. On hot days you see children playing there!
I hope you enjoyed the glimpse of Taipei that I’m sharing with you! I’ll try to show you what I packed as well as my haul as soon as I can!
Stay fabulous and have fun!
