Clear blue skies, finally

What's so special about this photo? This was the first time in five days that the sun came out to play and I must say we've never been so happy to see Mr. Sun. We were in Wulai that day and the weather started to improve from then on. Though Mr. Sun was playing peekaboo with the clouds, at least it didn't rain in the last few days. That enabled us to enjoy the beautiful sceneries in Wulai, Hualien and Taroko Gorge. We experienced the best weather yesterday with sunny skies but it was such a shame that we spent the most part of the day indoors at the National Palace Musuem. We made a dash to Yangmingshan at about 4pm we had bad luck with the taxi driver. He was not familiar with Yangmingshan and dropped us at Yangming Park and told us that there would be plenty of cabs servicing the Yangmingshan area when in fact, there was none. There were shuttle buses though, providing loop service to all the main points of interests. Unfortunately, by the time we got there, it was almost 5pm and the service ends at 5.30pm. We didn’t dare take any risk, not with a young child in tow so we just walked around the Yangming Park and took a bus down the mountain. Hubby joked that we can proudly say we've been up to Yangmingshan twice, but truth is, we never got round to visiting the places of interests.

Anyway, we got back this afternoon to sunny tropical Kuala Lumpur with a temperature of about 30oC, which is two-fold the temperature in Taipei. We spent the rest of the day unpacking, doing the laundry and cleaning the house. I anticipate next week will be extremely busy at work but I hope I'll still have the energy to sort out the photos and post some stories of our trip.
