Before we traveled up to Taichung, we visited the Sun Moon Lake. Weather was not good that day as it started to rain heavily. Sun Moon Lake was famous for its' peacock and due to the rain, all the peacocks were in their cages. Only a few of us walked around the park with an umbrella while the rest waited in the bus. Therefore, no photos !
Next, we visited the Wenwu Temple.

Opposite the temple, there were rows of stalls selling scarves and some souvenirs. I spotted a stall selling fresh steamed sweet potatoes and passion fruits jelly. Mum and other aunties love the sweet potatoes but I prefer the passion fruit's jelly.

By the time we left the temple, it was about time for lunch. As it had been raining since morning, everyone were cold and hungry. Meals that day was not too bad as I simply love the 3 cups chicken a lot. It was not just an ordinary chicken with oyster sauce, but I felt something else was being added to make the sauce really appetizing and fragrance ! Wonder what's the recipe.

We left the green tea plantation and headed towards Taichung. Once arrived at Taichung city, it was dinner time. Dinner that night was initially on our own as we will be visiting the night market, Fengjia Night Market. However, after the bad experience we had earlier in Kaoshiung Night Market, we immediately asked the tour guide to pre-arrange dinner for us. At about RM15 per pax, we had these mouth-watering dishes ........
|Steamboat and some side dishes|
|White paus with braised pork|
|Condiments ~ Salted vege, spring onions and crushed peanuts|
|Filled up the pau and they really made a good combinations|
|Salted pepper fried chicken with colourful crackers|
|Black pepper chicken on hotplate|
|Sweet & sour pork|
The restaurant we dined in is located in the night market itself and after dinner, we had about an hour plus for shopping before we had to leave for the hotel. Accommodation that night was at a Boutique Hotel, Elizabeth Hotel. It was very clean and bed was huge !
