It's a brand new year, and there are plenty of exciting plans ahead! And most of them involved travelling! :)
Speaking of which, I'll be embarking on yet another spur-of-the-moment, grab-the-best-deal-while-we-can, oversea adventure...
This time, I'll be going with my Taiwanese-born friend,
Clara, and we'll be spending two whole weeks in her homeland...

It's gonna be a fully-packed 15 days of travelling and exploring all the sights and foods of Taiwan, but since it's my very first trip to the island country, I can't wait!
I will most likely be uncontactable in the meantime, but I heard there are many cafes and places with free Wifi, so I might check messages and mail via my phone. But please do not call or sms me unless you have important things to tell me like my pay cheques are ready for collection...
