My next trip is to Taiwan. Visited Taiwan so many times, but this trip will be concentrated on places that I did not visit and also to attend a wedding of close relative in Taipei. Been to many different parts of Taiwan but this trip I am going to Tainan too (the last was 30 years ago). I chose to take my favourite airline, Singapore Airlines to Taiwan. Booked few months ago, the fare was around S$549 per adult. We were allowed to check in our luggage with weight of 30kg each. This is more than enough for me and I think hubby and me both combined luggages might not even exceed 30 kg, maybe after all the shopping in Taiwan, our luggages will be heavier but defintely not more than 60 kg hahaha.

Upon arrival at Haneda International Airport, we quickly checked in our luggages so we could do some quick shopping in the airport. If you have not purchased the famous Japan Banana Cake, they are available at the airport. The price is the same as those sold in department stores. We were still hungry and had some supper in the airport. We managed to get keychains, souvenirs, etc and also some Disney watches for the grand nephews back home(Did not take any photos of the Disney watches.) I spotted a nice watch and bought one for myself too. :) We spend too much time shopping at the souvenir shops, almost missed our flight hahaha. We left half an hour before the plane take off, so we hurriedly make our way to Gate 141. (Need to take lift down to the gate.) But We were wondering why the flight was to Seattle, so quickly checked our boarding pass and to our horror, we were at the wrong gate, should be Gate 143. OMG, we took the lift up again and run to Gate 143 and dare not take the lift down, we took the escalator and managed just in time to boarding time. Phew. Enjoyed our trip so much in Japan, we hope to visit Osaka the next time. Bye Bye Japan, thanks for a wonderful and memorable time in Japan. :)
