I might look different in this post because this trip was last year around October 2014. YES, I change my make up style and contact lens every year so I basically look slightly different every year. Hahahaha! After this post, I will be updating my 2015 September trip to Taiwan. Stay tune
for my different face!
Basically you can go to CingJing Farm from other part of Taiwan but going from Taichung is the nearest. So here we are, slotting one day in TaiChung for the CingJing Farm.
Good Morning peeps!! We engaged a cab driver to drive us to and back CingJing Farm around the cost of NTD 4000. The cab driver is a very nice guy, polite and helpful, we even bring us for some traditional breakfast before we start our journey.
The famous Yong He breakfast. We’ve been to this famous breakfast chain outlet for a few times di because I guess they open really early like 6am.
The signature, salted soya bean milk with fried dough.
Some egg pancake..And my favourite fluffy mantou! OMG I just love mantou! Yes it’s basically steamed bun. Empty bun but for me, there’s still some sweetness in the bun! Yums!
It took us about 2 hours to reach CingJing Farm. Yay! Food again!
Here, you can find a lot of authentic Yunnan dishes because majority of the people staying here are Yunnans.
We had the stir fried mutton with local vegetables Yunnan style!
Some braised pork rice with some local vegetables
Bamboo shoot soup
and some snacks like sausage wrap with glutinous rice..
and white wine sausages with different toppings and i choose garlic and corn! Yums!
There’s this famous pizza that everyone tried but I’ll give it a pass.
So we started our CingJing Farm adventure here!
A big map to show how big is the place and each different sections with different activities.
It’s already so beautiful once we entered the farm!
Falling in love with the calm and soothing prairie.
Green prairie, blue sky, cool breeze.. whats better?
Yea of coz, selfie! A lot a lot of selfie i mean..
Pardon me, it’s a sin not to take photos in such magnificent place!
There’s a lot of sheep.. like really a lot of sheep just loitering around.. Around as in the whole mountain..
And a small section where there are horses, donkeys and ponies for you to take photo with or even to take a ride with.
I’m so gonna do what I always do. Selfie with this beautiful horse
Bearfie with a pony
Papa wants a photo with his horse too!
Just take a second to enjoy the scenery.. But please do take a proper look before you lay down or sit down because there’s a lot of sheeps around means there’s poo around as well.
We took our time just to sit there and stare at this beautiful scenery in front of us. Somehow, an opportunity to just enjoy the nature is not something we get to have often.
Look at the view, the mountain, the cliff, the slopes, the prairies, the animals… I smell freedom!
After the relaxing “picnic” without food.. we went to the other section for some more sheeps.
This is like hell lot of sheeps walking around you.
A souvenir shop, outlet selling sheep related snacks and a vending machine with sheeps’ snacks.
Just bought a package to feed them but please please please be extra careful.. those sheeps will really rush to you and snatch the food. hahaha. Someone being careless as you can see.
So now i had my packaged sheep food! So cute right..
and I had my sheep
We also tried the goat’s milk ice cream and it is too heavy for me. Both of themmmm..
So when the bell rings, means show starting soon. Everyone gathered at the center of the farm for the show..
Interesting one.. with the sheep dog trained, you can see the whole herd of sheeps running downwards.
They also have this very experienced sheep keeper to show us how to do sheep shearing..
The show lasted for around 1 hour and we were directed to another side of the farm for more shows if we are interested.
Of coz, why not! I totally feel like Pocahontas while walking at such high ground..
So we arrived at this area for a performance from the aborigines with their horses!
Such big horses you have huh!!! They just galloped in front of me.. so near so stunning!
We left the farm after the horse adventure. Grab some drinks at this very nice paper box themed restaurant
Impressive. Everything is made from paper box!
Even our take away drinks!
There’s also a swiss garden but we skipped because it’s almost closing time. We headed back to TaiChung with our happiness level full. And of coz, more photos!
