What to eat in Taiwan?

During the last few days of our trip, we covered Gaoxiong, Taichung and Taipei. We put these cities as our last stops because we wanted to do our shopping and eating last!
Here are some of the street food we ate during our trip in Taiwan! Taipei – Shilin Night Market, Taichung – Feng Jia Night Market, Gao Hsiung – Liu He Night Market and Kending Night Market.

Scandinavia

And in 2 days, Mr Gan will be flying off for Europe to further his studies.

It's such a mixed feelings. Happy because he's going to be doing something that he has always wanted to do, but not so happy because it will be the start of a 3 years LDR.

Nonetheless, it was a decision I supported. :)

And because of this, I booked my tickets to visit him this coming December. We will be traveling Scandinavia - Germany, Denmark, Sweden and the famously expensive Norway. It will be my first time traveling Europe, and my first time traveling in sub-zero climate (the closest winter experience I had was the Japan trip 6 years ago).

So...

EXCITING!

I hope I will survive though. But I have no idea what to pack for the trip at all.

Tips anyone? :)
