Exploring Taiwan : Maokong Gondola, Taipei Zoo, and Shilin Night Market

Before the Holy Week of 2015, two of my office mates and I are already booked to Taiwan in November.

I wanted to document every moved we made in Taiwan from arrival to departure! So I used my smartphone which is a Cherry Mobile Alpha Style that I bought last 2014.Using Microsoft's OneNote app on my phone I captured photos, jotted down notes, and even recorded random interesting audios while exploring Taiwan!
