Welcome back! More on my walk about in Hsinchu Night Market.

Cooked prawns. Sold by the weight. Looks nice but I did not buy them as I wanted to save for others. =P

Popsicle? Well.. it is grilled corn with toppings. You can choose the toppings that you like to be coated on your grilled corn.

Strawberries in basket load. Yup, you buy by the basket load. Sorry,  you are not allowed to pick/select them one by one.

More strawberries. Definitely I know I can’t eat the whole basket by myself. =)

Final posting on Kaohsiung’s Kai-Xuan Night Market series. Hope you have enjoyed the earlier 4 part series. If you have missed them, do go back and a have a look. =)

Another stall selling deep fried crabs but I doubt these are soft shell crabs.

mmm.. not sure what this stall sells. Anyone knows?

20140112-104256 pm.jpg

Of course aside from food, you also find stalls selling socks…

ahem… and  underwears too!! Colourful ones, mind you!! haha

20140112-104306 pm.jpg

This look like seafood ball with prawn fillings.

Looks like a sushi conveyor belt. They are not selling Japanese sushi but it serves more of Taiwanese items which you can pick from the belt. Imagine a conveyor belt in the night market!!! Interesting right?

Piglet shape-like biscuit.

20140112-104322 pm.jpg

really cute looking…..

Before heading back to the MRT station, stopped at this stall to buy an aloe vera drink. Quite nice but you can taste the slight bitter slimmy sap of the aloe vera. =P

Hong Kong – Bus trip to Tai O (2)

This is my 2nd part of Tai O. If you missed on my first part, here is the blog; Hong Kong – Bus trip to Tai O (1)

Tai O is a slow moving pace as compared to the city. It is very scenic and peaceful. A nice slow walk on the jetty. People renting bicycles to cycle there too. It will be really fun and cycle and enjoy the view on the bicycle. Of course you can walk like what I did. =)

More views of the stilts houses…..

At the end one of the street lead to the Tai O Heritage Hotel. It was previously a police station built on the small hill next to Tai O Ferry Pier, to reinforce the police forces on Lantau Island but ceased operation in 1996 and operated till 2002 as a functioned a patrol post due to the decline in crime rate. In 2009, it was restored as a 9 room boutique hotel.
