Auntie Babie Loves Costco ♥ ♥ ♥


During the 5 years I lived in Taipei, when I was free to do whatever and kiss whoever, I did not spend my weekends in bars dancing like Lady Gaga and kissing whoevers.

If not at the street food markets, my Saturdays and Sundays were spent in Costco.

I am so happy I get to revisit one of my favorite places in Taipei.


Costco is a tease. It requires you to pass through the non-food floor before you get to where all the good stuff is.

IMG_0003Look at the generous free-taste pieces! No dividing one truffle into 183.2976 tiny bits.
Now you know why I love hanging out in Costco. Winking smile


IMG_0004Guess who’s delighted

IMG_9968Little plates of spaghetti with Prego sauce there

(Doesn’t the lady seem a bit too happy?)
