A “Pilgrimage” for Bubble Tea Lovers (Taiwan 2011, Day 12)

Taichung is the birthplace of Bubble Tea. For a Bubble Tea lover like me, going there is like going on a “pilgrimage”. Bubble Tea originates from Chun Shui Tang (春水堂) in Taichung. So, my first stop definitely had to be Chun Shui Tang. We tried the hot bubble tea, something that we don’t have in Singapore and ordered some snacks. It tasted as good as the cold drink but I think I’m still more used to cold bubble tea 🙂

We can also see familiar brands such as Gong Cha and Koi too!


B&B for Music Lovers (Taiwan 2011, Day 12)

The place that I stayed in Tai Chung was an incredible B&B for music lovers. The Forro B&B is located on the 2nd floor of its cafe – Forro Cafe. An interesting concept but it can get a bit noisy at night if you want to return to your room and retire early.

All the different rooms are decorated according to different themes. The one that I stayed in was a Rocker room. When I entered the room, I could recognise immediately that the furniture are from IKEA (I’m a big fan). The room was clean but a bit old and used.

The cafe on the 1st floor was interestingly decorated. My favourite corner was a Marilyn Monroe collage created by memo pads. I strongly recommend visitors to Tai Chung to visit the cafe even if you are not staying in the B&B. Not only is it nicely decorated, there are live performances by budding musicians on certain nights. So, do not miss out this great place if you are a music lover!
