Koreans don’t only eat Kimchi. Since they experience the 4 seasons they have different delicious delicacies to suit your taste during…

Taiwan Travel Photos – Qingjing Farm

Time to ascend to an altitude of 1,750 meters above sea level and meet some sheep. We were traveling for about 3 hours going to Qingjing Farm and about 4 hours going home. It was exhausting but worth it. You can hug, pet and feed the sheep. They are just there grazing around all over the place. This is a good place to take the kids to. Make sure to buy some souvenirs and sheep’s milk biscuits before you head home, they are delicious. Check out my post on Taiwan…

The Philpost Experience of 2016 Makati Edition – Philippine Postal Service I ordered a bunch of Korean skin care products from eBay and Testerkorea.com and had it delivered straight to the Philippines instead of the US through freight forwarders.
