Media invite: Teochew Festival 新加坡潮州节 2014

If you haven't know, for the first time in Singapore, the public have a rare opportunity to be immersed in the heritage of Teochews at the exciting Singapore Teochew Festival 新加坡潮州节!

The Singapore Teochew Festival is organised in conjunction with the Teochew Poit Ip Huay Kuan’s grand 85th anniversary celebrations in Singapore and aims to renew awareness within the community as well as ignite interest among the public on the many facets of Teochew culture.

I'm not a Teochew but I'm very keen in the event! It's always good to learn more about each other's cultures ya? :)

Taiwan Day 7 Part 1: Jiu Fen (九份) and Shi Fen (十份)

Hello everyone, back with another post on Taipei! It's so time-consuming to blog about travelling! Haha. 

So here we are at the first official day in Taipei and our plan was to do 九份, 十份 before heading to 五分埔 and 饒河街觀光夜市. (this post will only be on Jiu Fen and Shi Fen, will write about Raohe Night Market on a separate one.)

I know my schedule was super packed! Haha. But I always believe in making full use of time when I'm travelling. :) 

So here's the warning, only follow my footsteps if your legs are strong enough to carry you the entire day. It's going to be filled with endless walking! Heh. 

Right. Now we are good to start with the amazing race. First stop, Jiu Fen (九份). 

Jiufen is about an hour away (via train and bus) from Taipei Main Station.
