After a week of intense shopping and sightseeing, we embarked on our flight back to Vancouver, but not without having breakfast first.
It was quite a rare occurrence throughout the vacation, but there did happen to be one day where we woke up in time for a proper breakfast. Taiwanese congee side dishes have quite an interesting flavour.
As mentioned before, celebrity ads are basically everywhere in Asia; Kimberley was spotted on the MTR on the way to SOGO.
On the fifth floor, we also happened to chance across a particularly good-looking model and his partner modelling for MIDO watches.

As ATT 4 Fun happened to be conveniently located right across from the Taipei 101 Observatory, I only needed to cross the street before I was able to experience everything that the somewhat-new mall had to offer.

To finish off a basically perfect day of walking and sightseeing, a buffet that was heavily based on desserts was quite an amazing treat.
On our third day, we headed off to the place that I had been eagerly anticipating since the moment exams had finished: Ximending.
I took the MRT for the first time in Taiwan.
For lunch on our second day (jet lag led to the skipping of breakfast), we headed up to the seventh floor (or was it the eighth?) of Hankyu to try out a restaurant called Kai Fun (written as 開飯, which is Chinese for starting a meal) a little around 1 PM.
On our 8th (?) day in Asia, we flew from Hong Kong to Taiwan, making a short stop at the EVA lounge before boarding.
But before heading towards the lounge, I made a quick trip around the stores they had at the Hong Kong airport.
That white polo reminded me of Jackson's fencing uniform. XD (Now if only the 18 was changed to 852...)
After checking in, we went to explore Haikyu, a Japanese-themed department store whose entrance was directly connected to the hotel lobby.
After dinner, I set out to explore the department next to Hankyu, Xinyi Eslite. Upon exiting the basement level of Hankyu, one could connect through to the MTR, a 7-Eleven store, and a McDonalds, in addition to the basement floor of Eslite.
Eslite housed quite a number of designer brands (Karl Lagerfeld, agnes b, etc.), leading the overall price of their products to be a tad more pricey than those at Hankyu. As a result, I didn't end up purchasing many things.
