On Dec 10, our morning began with a visit to the hair salon in Neihu. Gloria said she wanted to get highlights, and Jenny highly recommended her hairstylist Codoco. After a quick stop at MOS Burgers to pick up some brunch for us, we showed up at the hair salon shortly after 11am. In the end, we totally pampered ourselves. We both got our hair highlighted and got pedicures done while there.

Gloria’s hair was highlighted with a tint of toffee color. I don’t know the formal name of the color, but it’s really nice. I got mine highlighted with a dark reddish wine color.

I’ve never had pedicures done before so it was interesting to watch as the lady touched up our toes. I thought about getting a manicure while there but then decided I would do my own. So now I have lavender color toes nails and a glittery pink fingernails.

Thursday, Dec 10 also happened to be Gloria’s birthday. My treat for her was a room night at the Sherwood Hotel in Taipei with a voucher . The voucher was valid for one room night in the EXECUTIVE SUITE. It’s HUGE. The original cost of the room would be NT30,000 + service charges etc for one room night. (Not sure how much that is? CA$1,000 give or take). However, I didn’t pay nearly as much. I got it in exchange for a donation I made back in August to assist those unfortunate ones who lost their homes when Typhoon Morakot swept by southern Taiwan.

We went to dinner at Bellini’s. Wilson joined us for the lovely birthday day dinner. We chose Bellini because of the convenience of location as it’s close to the hotel. And also mainly because Bellini offers a really special birthday dessert afternoon. (I had been there before on such occasions). It was nice to sit back and enjoy dinner with Wilson and Gloria. Wilson was a bit tired but sweet to take time off from work to celebrate Gloria’s birthday with us. It also gave Gloria an opportunity to get to know him a bit better in person.

After dinner, the three of us walked back to the hotel together. Since it was her birthday, the hotel had room service bring us a heart shaped cheesecake with topping for her birthday. In order to remember the event and place, we took photos around the suite.
