After a hectic 4-day stay in Taichung, we left for Hsinchu by high speed train.
The Japanese technology high speed train was comfortable and quiet, at speed about 280 km/h.
We were warmly welcome by Fr. Chin Sinwee, a Malaysian priest based in Church of Lady Mt Carmel in Hsinchu.
Hsinchu is world famous IT city with many top technology development companies, one of them is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, the world largest semiconductor manufacturer.
It is our last stop of the 2 weeks holiday in Taiwan.
We left for home on April 23. It was an amazing and grace-filled journey!

Sun Moon Lake was the last destination of the trip for my two children.
From Sun Moon Lake, we arrived at Taichung city where we parted company. Our two children continued their journey northward to Taipei, where they put up a night and flew off to Malaysia the next day.
We were warmly welcomed by our fellow legionaries brethren Wei Qiang and wife Li Fang.
For the next few days, Wei Qiang became our guide and driver. we traveled south to Kaoshiong and Tainan, meeting many old friends, seeing many new places, visited many unique churches and eating different types of food. It was a great journey.
I would like the pictures to tell the story, see all pictures on Facebook.

|At Qingjing town 清境|
We left Qingjing in the morning for Sun Moon Lake.
Sun Moon Lake is a renowned tourists' favourite, and also a big reservoir. It is about 7.5 square kilometer.
We arrived at the lake on April 15 at about 3 pm. It was raining but did not deter us from lake side cycling. It was fun and wonderful experience.
We put up a night at a cosy lake side hotel, and did a boat ride before we departed to Taichung.
