Playing the receipt lottery
If you examine the receipts (or so called uniform-invoices) given when you purchased stuff from shops in Taiwan, you will find that each has an unique 8-digit number at its top. This is a lottery number where the winning numbers are published on the 25th of every odd month of the year. The lottery is a gimmick used by the government so that businesses in Taiwan have to report actual revenues to the tax office. (Receipts are proof of revenues and the lottery motivates the consumers to ask for them :P) Foreigners can claim the prizes too. ;)
The coastline contains sandstone that contains mud, clay and iron which has a limestone texture and therefore is more prone to erosion by the sea and winds.
Location : Yehliu, Northern Taiwan
SHI LING Night Market
GREAT shopping! GREAT food! (Though sanitation is questionable...) GOT to try the Pearl Milk Tea and the 'xiao chi' (little snacks)! And the 'xue pian'!!! My favorite! Shaved vanilla ice with your choice of toppings...strawberry is always safe!!! Comfortable. It gets REALLY crowded!
Halal Beef Noodles
The Beef noodles here is reportedly to be among the best in Taipei and it's halal! Packed with customers both Muslims n non-Muslims throughout the day. The noodles come in the spicu n non-spicy variety. Both were very tasty with tender, juicy beef.
Thai food eat as much as you can
Easy & Thai decoration. There you can eat as much as you can. You order one dish by one dish and they cook one by one for you. Need to pay not more than 450 NTD.
The menu is big & long. It's surprise that you have so many choices: all kinds of vegetable, meat, sea food, soup, drinks etc. I tried raw shrimps, fried sea-food, coco-nut curry beef, Thai soup, moon shrimp crisps, pineapple-shrimp balls, peper chicken, pig tonge etc. Besides warm dishes, there also offers you buffet: shrimp biscuits, coco-nut dessert, purple-rice dessert, fruit etc. Raw shrimps: very spicy.
