Previously in our earlier blog entries [sometime in the year 2011 when we were still newbies in the blogosphere], we have blogged about Vogue Star Serviced Apartment and we personally felt that the blog post didn’t do justice to the wonderful stay that we had there. Hence, in this blog post, we will share more about Vogue Star Serviced Apartment and also why you ought to consider putting up at Vogue Star Serviced Apartment if you’re planning a trip to Taipei, Taiwan.
We first came to know about Vogue Star Serviced Apartment through Baby’s friend and we more often than not enjoyed huge discounts on our room rates whenever we stay there. For a night’s stay, it will cost you SGD $124 if you book via online websites such as Booking.com or Expedia, and in case you’re wondering, there is no breakfast provided [which we personally feel is a good thing and we’ll explain why later] but there is free unlimited Wifi!

This is how the Duplex Studio of Vogue Star Serviced Apartment looks like.

There’s even a comfortable sofa that can sit about 3-4 persons.

And this is where you sleep. There’s practically not much space for you to do anything else other than sleeping.

There’s a mini kitchenette in the Duplex Studio and seriously, the refrigerator, washing machine, and microwave machine will definitely be stuffs that you will use frequently. This is because, you can store all your perishable items in the refrigerator, wash your own clothing with the washing machine [thereby reducing what you bring for your trip], and heating up the convenient food that you buy from the nearby convenience store [so that is why you don’t exactly need breakfast to be included]..

2). Ningxia Night Market is a 7 minutes walk from Vogue Star Serviced Apartment.
3). The hospital, fire station, and police station are 5 minutes away from Vogue Star Serviced Apartment.

Hello Everyone,
we truly apologise for not blogging over the last few days as we are currently in Taiwan for a holiday and we will only be back this Sunday evening.

As we just managed to get a stable wifi network, we are going to put up a rather short blog entry about our Taiwan trip thus far.

Background of Our Trip:

Baby and I have planned for this trip to Taiwan since a year ago and ever since our first trip to Taiwan together, we have made it a point to visit Taiwan every year.

For this year’s trip, it would be for 9 days 8 nights and we will be staying at 5 different properties. So far in our trip, we have put up at Ming Qin Min Su, Skylight BB and the Golden Spring Hotel. For the rest of our trip [that is tomorrow and the remaining days], we will be staying at Shui Wu and Vogue Star Serviced Apartment.

So far, the main attractions that we have visited thus far are Carton King, Swiss Garden, Green Green Grasslands, Guanyin Waterfall, 18 Degree C, Puli Winery, Guangxin Paper Mill, Liao Mayor Black Tea Shop, Sun Moon Lake, Ci En Pagoda, Car Accessories Shop in Taichung, Yi Fu Tang, Taiwan High Speed Rail, and Beitou Hot Spring. As for the rest of our trip, our itinerary is unconfirmed but tentatively, we would be visiting the Leofoo Village, Maokong Gondola, Shifen, Raohe Night Market, Shilin Night Market, Xi Men Ding, and Taipei Zoo.


For this year’s trip, Baby and I are using two types of cameras to take photographs of our trip. One is the Canon Powershot S100 which I am personally using and the other is the Olympus EPL-3 which Baby is using. Because we take tons of photographs [up to more than 2 GB per day] everyday, we will put up two different links [one which has access to the photos that I take with the Canon Powershot S100 and the other which has access to the photos that Baby takes with the Olympus EPL-3]. Due to the huge volume of photographs taken each day, we will not carry out any image editing until we are back in Singapore. So meanwhile, all the photos that you see in the upcoming blog entries about our trip are all unedited.

+For a start, here are two links to the photographs that we have taken duing our first day in Taiwan this year.+
