It had been nice all day during my birthday, and for this, I was sincerely thankful. We weren't so lucky the next day. Since we were on our scooter, with the speed of the scooter, the raindrops were quite painful when they hit your face. We decided to curtail our second day and return to Taipei sooner than we had originally anticipated. However, when we got to the Ilan Museum, we realised that we had used up all our cash, and that they didn't accept credit cards... So we paid our coffee with our credit card, and decided to head to lunch. Little did we know, the restaurants didn't accept credit cards either! It was enevitable that we had to get some cash. So we hopped on the scooter, found an ATM, and got some cash. Then, we went back to the restaurant, thinking they'd be so touched that we came back. Well, they weren't at all touched. If I had known they were such ungrateful dudes, we should've just went to the one next to it...

Well someone knew about my craze for strawberries. It being my birthday, afterall, he thus suggested that we get this strawberry cake for celebration. I didn't realise how famous this Cake Nobel was. I didn't know what the fuss was about, until I saw the sign with a picture of the cake. Then, I knew that it was something I'd like.

We had a late lunch, but we weren't planning on skipping dinner. There was a whole street full of grilled chicken restaurants, and as a chicken meat lover, I couldn't resist the temptation! But since I wasn't that hungry, I wondered if we could finish an entire chicken. Thankfully, I now have someone with me to clear up what I can't and don't want to eat! So I won't have to feel guilty about wasting food anymore!

This is, after all, my birthday trip. So something special had to be arranged. I hear that the famous whiskey distillery is not far from here, but we didn't know how to get there. We've seen 'King Car' signs along the way, but it turned out to be the orchid farm. Then, we decided to go with our instincts, and see where the road would take us. Believe it or not, we eventually found the place!

After having seen the day view from the 35th floor of 101, I knew that I had to come back and see the night view. When I realised that this Japanese place offered quite reasonable priced meals, I decided to pick an evening to dine here.
