We are back to our own schedule on the third day. We didn't visit too many places on our third day. I think partly because some of our planned trip were already covered in our city tour the previous day (e.g. CKS Memorial Hall and National Palace Museum).

So we visited Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall (国立国父纪念馆). And here is the statue of Sun Yat-sen.

An outside view of the Memorial Hall. My husband shot this angle to show a comparison between the traditional and the modern architectural (Taipei 101).

Front view of the Memorial Hall.

So after lunch, we took the MRT to City Hall Station and from there, we took a free shuttle bus to Taipei 101 (台北101). As you have guessed, there are 101 stories in this building. What a spectacular view!

Besides that, there is also a mall in this building. How cool is that?! Of course I had to shop around! And on top of that, I found a bookstore! I bought two books there - School's Out and Broken For You.
(Note: Wendy, thanks for your great review! Because of this, I bought the latter :D)

Interesting ceiling we saw inside the mall. What does it makes you think of?

We saw these interesting 'pyramids' located outside the building. When I stepped closer to have a good look, I could see some shops beneath.

So after visited Taipei 101 (we spent almost the whole afternoon here), we took the MRT to Ximending to have our dinner. (Seems like we couldn't get enough of Ximending. There are so many things to see there!) Anyway, I found this shop where they are selling desserts and just couldn't resist this. Chunks of mangoes on top of grated ice. This is yummy!!! Reminds me of our good ole Ice Kachang.

We happened to see a full moon at Ximending. And then it dawned on me that it was Mid-Autumn Festival that day. No wonder the moon looked so big and round.

So that's the end of our third day in Taipei. To be continued...
