Taipei International Flora Expo


Today we wake up unusually early to go to the Flora Expo.


But first, we grab something to eat at Ching Guang Market 晴光市場


My power breakfast: spring onion pancake with egg, fried meat buns and hot milk tea


Flora Expo ticket counter


My cousin and tour guide Cherry, Dad, Me, and some random couple


Five million four hundred fifty eight thousand seven hundred sixty four visitors as of
March 3, 2011. Whew.


Even the first aid sign is all hearts and flowers


Wall of flowers


Sea of flowers


They’re so pretty, pretty, pretty.










My favorites are:

                          Butterfly Orchids                                                                     Calla Lily


Auntie Babie and Uncle Frankie, hihihi!
