Jacky at Yangmingshan in year 2006, without me! %*&#@! Well, actually I was in Jiuzhaigou, Sichuan during that period. Lot of beautiful flowers in this national park.

I am in Penang, Malaysia. In fact, we arrived in Ipoh, Malaysia on Friday morning and there was not Internet connection since Friday night. We have taken alot of pictures and visited some hot springs near Ipoh too.

Ohh.. I never been YangMingShan when I traveled to Taiwan. Think next round should visit there since the photos you post here are so attractive! =)
I like this shot, i pick the first for my new wallpaper… and i stumble it.. good job admin.. (~_^)
nice photos you got there. put some taiwan food! =P
Very beautiful place. Have a nice time in Malaysia
Ah, Eunice, much better than the last entry with all the, uh, scantily clad men. Women are beautiful. Men, not so much. I like the picture with all the flower arrangements in it. Flower gardens are always beautiful to see and smell. My favorite flower scent is the lilac. We had two lilac bushes around our house when I was growing up, and during the spring I would stand in the middle of the bush and just inhale the scent of them. Thanks for bringing back that memory.
@Moon Loh: I think guided tours usually don’t include Yangmingshan in their itineraries.
@Irvine: Haha! Already compiled all the Taiwanese food in this post
@Mark, mc caluya: Thanks!!
@Borneo Falcon: Thanks. Sigh… it has been raining for the whole day in Penang on my second day stay.
@Chuck: Haha! Some like the last entry though… I hardly smell flowers, not many in our area… what a shame!
I like the pictures, i guess event better if i can see the real one…happy traveling eunice , have a good day…
Looks like it’s a lot to see there. Very beautiful and interesting! (Except from the rain… ha ha…!)
@sundapost: Indeed, a picture can speak a thousand words but won’t it be better if we could soak up the atmosphere in that place too?
@Lifecruiser: Yeah! The rain is a spoiler while taking photos!
Great post and pictures! To my surprise, Yangmingshan is also the place to be to catch cherry blossoms if one arrives at the correct timing >> http://asiarediscovery.com/taiwan/137-taiwan-yangminshan-national-park-cherry-blossoms
Have you been to New Zealand, Eunice? If not plan a 3 weeks tour and culminated with Tandem Skydiving at 15000 feets at Lake Taupo!
