The mountain at the back look so fake due to the clouds
All these big rocks are actually marbles. According to the guide, the marbles on the mountain can last them for another 10,000 years so actually at Yilan (宜兰)their pathways were made from marbles and I even saw a primary school built with marbles.

The next morning, we got to get up earlier to tour around the farm. The tour guide from the farm named himself Johor Bahru cause I think his Chinese name is Xin Shan which is the Chinese name for JB, a very interesting and humorous guide.

There were fruits for us to pluck  for free and they were very fresh and sweet. No insecticide applied so we were able to eat on the spot. [ Saw an aunty plucked 1 whole handbag of the fruits [=.=]

We had our lunch at Jiu Fen (九份 ). There is a bus stop outside the street so I think it is quite accessible to go. Jiu Fen have custom-made wooden clogs shop, there’s why there is another name called 木屐街 (Clogs street) I Think.

Bought the drunkard chicken to have it on the bus back to Taipei. CT and I were the powerful one, everyone was sleeping on the bus while we were busy eating.
Our next stop is 士林宫邸 and just so happened they were having chrysanthemum flowers exhibition.
My fault again, busy snapping pictures and lost the tour group again. =x CT and I were searching for them for quite sometime >_<
