Baby Spa

It seems that new parents of the recent years will bring their little ones to this baby swimming centre located in serveral shopping malls. I'm not sure if there are other companies doing this, but I often see friends posting photos their cute little ones swimming (more of kicking in the water) with an orange float around their necks. And I am honoured to experience such a session when I am invited to tag along with my GF's family.

The outlet we went to was Baby Spa, located in Plaza Singapura. There was already one baby happily playing in the pool. Her boy took the small pool next to the glass panel. There were four small pools and one big pool. Small and big water duckies and colorful balls are in the water for the babies to play. But I think they are too young to play with the toys. It is more for the parents to play and get attention from their child.

Baby Spa only allow two adults in the pool area and no photography is allowed outside the outlet. Her hubby switched with me and I was able to go in and play with her boy. I think I was more excited than the boy.

The staff came over once in a while to help her boy massage his legs, kick his legs, let the boy relax. His body was very tense, not moving or kicking around much, and his fingers were curled up into fists. He moved around more after the massage.

Floating in the water

Their package details (a leaflet I picked up from their counter):
**Ok. I need a better quality version. To be updated =P

Here's their writeup about their service.
Our BabySpa System is a warm water-based method of strengthening and stimulating babies to improve their physical growth and mental development.​

At birth, the baby's brain has little information about how to move on the floor because he has never had that experience. However, the baby already has seven months of information about how it feels to move in an aqueous environment. In this environment the neonates body is buoyant and all the babys sensory pathways are developing; vision, hearing, feeling, taste and smell sensation. If newborns dont use their natural ability, it may be lost. For this reason, it is very important that they have the opportunity to swim from the very first day of life or as soon as possible. Providing an opportunity for baby to move in the water is an ideal way to develop not only a stronger body, but a better brain.​

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
