Crystal Jade Jiang Nan

Crystal Jade Jiang Nan, quite a new place in Vivocity Level One, located opposite JPot. Previously this space was some burger restaurant. Pardon my vague memory. Haha..

It was quite a wait for a table for at least 15minutes. Dining on a Friday night in Vivo City, so a queue is inevitable. The restaurant was quite spacious too. There are many big tables, so those in big groups can choose to eat here. Their menu is quite extensive too. There's a lot to choose from, and we took quite a while.

The main pull for dining there was the colourful Xiao Long Baos, all different colours for the eight flavours. We didn't get the preset of  8+1  Xiao Long Bao as there's a beef flavoured one. None of us eat beef. So we choose our own. There's the original flavour, shrimp, spicy chicken, vegetable, black truffle and foie gras. There's also cheese and the beef that we didn't order.

The shrimp in the wanton taste very fresh and juicy. We saw that we can choose our noodle type, so we chose the triangle noodles. It looks special. But maybe we should have just opt for the normal noodles. I find it too thick. It felt like I was eating alot of flour.

Zha Jiang Mian. To me, it was pretty spicy, but to GF, it was acceptable. I quite like the taste. The sauce was thick and not diluted. Very tasty.

At the end of the meal, we were both very full. Initially we wanted to order only one bowl of noodles, but the waiter said that our order won't be enough for us and if we were to place order a second time, our food won't come so quickly. In the end, the additional bowl of noodles was too much. And we didn't managed to order the dessert that we wanted, as we were too full~ *sad*

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…
