At Xi Meng Ding, there's this 小红楼 very interesting place with some history behind it.
Xi Meng Ding is very vibrant and with many eateries and small trendy shops which explains why this area is so popular with the youngsters. The black woolly jacket I'm wearing is bought from a shop there.......it is very stylish, with the zipper in front that's slanted across your body - the hood can be folded to review a very furry side that makes it appear like i wearing a fur scarf.
Next day I went to Jiu Fen - 九份. Having seen so many Taiwanese TV program showcasing this place, I told myself I must definitely include 九份 in my itinerary.
I recalled that one of the TV shows highlighted this 芋圆 and I tried it at this stall called
赖阿婆芋圆 which was very good as it's pretty springy.
In the nineties, this famous movie 《悲情城市》was filmed there.
