Day 67 – Trip To Hsinchu

Long time no see~! 好久不見~! hao jiu bu jian~!

I miss you so much, my blog :’) So sorry for not visiting you for a long time 😥

This time, I will tell you my story when I went to Hsinchu to attend Aylmar birthday party. It was 2 weeks ago~

Saturday, 9 November 2013

I would go to Hsinchu alone. So, I had to be well-prepared. I did some research about Hsinchu and how to get there in the night before.

I was invited to Aylmar birthday party at 13 pm. I planned to go in the morning as early as possible because I want to explore Hsinchu before going to mbak Ana’s house.

I left my dorm at 8.30 am. Kak Chiku told me that I could ride a bus from Gongguan, but I couldn’t find the bus lane which go to Hsinchu. So I went to Taipei Main Station to get the bus from there.

Taipei Bus Station

“Hsinchu” was written in a big size above the bus ticket counter. I spotted it easily and bought the ticket. The bus ticket price to Hsinchu is 130 NT$ for adults and 105 NT$ for student like me 🙂

I went to Hsinchu with bus 9003

It took 1.5-2 hours to go from Taipei to Hsinchu. I got off from the bus in National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) bus stop.

My plan A was to visit the city center of Hsinchu, to see temples, Hsinchu Stadium, etc. And my plan B was to visit Hsinchu Science Park and its surrounding.

It was 10.30 am and I didn’t know how to go to those tourism places. I didn’t know about the bus lanes and the cost of riding Taxi was too high for me. I was afraid I couldn’t make it in time (to go to mbak Ana’s house) if I tried to search those attractive places by foot.

So, I went with my plan C: visiting NTHU 😀


I love visiting universities which I don’t know before. I like searching their uniqueness and their positive points so that (I hope) I can improve Indonesian university 🙂

One of NTHU’s positive points is having two lakes inside x) I felt that NTHU’s environment was so fresh and peaceful. There’re a lot of trees and hills. Many people enjoyed their holiday here, inside this university! x)

we can take a fresh stroll, feed the birds and fishes, or just sit down & enjoy the nature~
I hope I can wear that kind of outfit SOON!
I hope I can wear again that kind of outfit SOON!

Lucky me, there’s a sports festival in NTHU! There’re a lot of cute children! Ta men hen keai! This was refreshing my mind part 2, hahah xD

Actually, I wanted to go to National Chiao-Tung University (NCTU) which is beside NTHU. But, I was afraid I would be late for Aylmar birthday party. So then I just wandered around Dong District of Hsinchu.

What I noticed was, there’re a lot of children playground in this city! Even though Hsinchu is a big city in Taiwan, there’re a lot of wide green space for relaxing and playing~


It was autumn but the weather temperature was quite high~


Finally, the main event: Aylmar birthday party! x)

Aylmar is the son of Mbak Ana & Mas Taufik. My parents and mbak Ana’s parents were good friends. Mbak Ana was my senior in kindergarten, elementary school, and high school. I once visited her when she studied in IIUM Malaysia. And this time, I had the opportunity to study in the same island with her. What a small world :D:D

I hope we can meet again in another country ya mbak x)

Aaand, this picture is the footage of the party~ (only from my camera)

Happy Aylmar~! ^^

We had a small reunion, #SatuTeladanEverywhere.

Thanks mba Ana & mas Taufik for inviting me to their nice house. And for Aylmar, be a good & tough Moslem boy ya!^^ *hugs & kisses from me~*
