[Travel] Taiwan Day #02 p1
<Post Scheduled on 06/09/2011>
After yesterday’s visit to Ximen Ding and Shuda Night Market…
I resumed my tour around Taiwan with the visit to
Chiang Kai Shiek Memorial Hall
Apparently this place is called Jiu Fen – Chinese for 9 portions. There used to be 9 Households on this mountain and when they went down the mountain for grocery shopping, they used to always buy 9 portions, with the passing of time, everyone then called this place Jiu Fen because of the 9 portion of items which they always bought.
As usual, do your homework and don’t come on a public holiday!
Jiu fen is also the home of some Taiwan Delicacies
Blurry non focused sausage!
BBQ Mushrooms – Awesome stuff.
Ice-cream wrap – Awesome stuff.
For this delicacy, the man scrapes the peanut block with a wooden shaver
Then a scoop of ice-cream is added to the wrap and its wrapped into a neat roll.
Awesome during hot summers!
Since Jiu Fen is a mountain…
There must be a peak!
Will be back here when i have my full selection of lenses. Not wide enough!
While coming back down the mountain,
We dropped by a souvenir shop.
These are traditional chinese taiwan lanterns called Tian Deng – Chinese for Heaven’s Light.
We got to try this later at night.
While in Taiwan, I also saw the effect of japanese influence in the populace…
Part 2 will be out tomorrow on 07th Sept.
