Taipei 101 Café

How will you feel if you are given a chance to visit Taipei 101, 台北101?
Yea! Months ago, i received an e-mail from Airasia that i have 2 free flights to Taiwan. I never have a chance to been to our Petronas Twin Towers. And last Saturday, i went to Taipei 101. Speechless? Yea! The World's tallest building! Standing up high with 509 meters from the ground till the needle. My dream finally came true! Unbelievable? Yea, better don't believe it. Just another bluff.

The "Taipei 101" that i went to was not the tallest building in the world, instead i should call it the shortest building. Take a look.

Not this building la

Our Kuching Taipei 101, located at BDC. At least i've been to 'Taipei 101' k. Pretty high-class i guess, compare to some cafeteria.

I kinda like the surrounding there, reposeful and relaxing. Everything was made of wood.

Perservering. My tummy was burning like hell! I refused to give up still. Hammering all the way to finish my Chao Lak Mian. Go Johnson! Feeling like eating in the spa.

I ordered two cups of Soya Drinks to vanquish the chao lakness. 2 cups vs 1 chao lak mian..In the end........


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
I gave up. I only managed to finish 49.99% of it. It was extremely spicy k. It was not only chao lak, i guess they added in wasabi, Black & white pepper, red chili....

Thank God for these two elephantine air cons that were sufficient to cool down my boiling tummy.

Lesson that i've learnt: 1) Don't order any drinks when you eat Mak Lak mian, just order ice.

I don't understand. Please translate.


Comments:

Wow... Johnson 49.99% is ok if me I think... I would have drink at least 3 cups of the soya drink and my face would be as red as the "sun wu Kong's" buttocks lol...

I think the notice says something like this: Because there is insufficient workers/man power. Please pay when the food and drinks are being served. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Correct me if I am wrong ;)

Itulah people say you 'khiang du ho liao... mai ke khiang!'.

I ordered zhung lak already very pedas. I can imagine your pain man. Nasib baik you didn't finish the mee aa. Avery finished it, and he cirit tiga hari.

Oh ya, this is your balasan for ordering the chao lak for me the other day. And that day one was double the amount of mee of Taipei 101. Hohohoho...
