MDF January 2013

I submitted my SMS ever since the start of announcing this month's Must Drink Friday. Actually it was until the day before, to try my luck again by sending out another, then did I realise, my first sms was not sent out at all. Up till Friday morning itself, only then did I receive the sms invitation to the event. And I was not dressed to the theme, Bikinis and Boardshorts. To be honest, I was not even dressed for beach.

January's Must Drink Friday is held in the newly opened Mambo Beach Club. It is located in Sentosa, along Siloso Beach, previously Cafe De Mar. I managed to scout for 3 other friends to go with me (I have the invitation to bring 3 friends), and we all were in office attire.

Must Drink Friday's never changing custom, is the free flow of drinks. At Mambo Beach Club, we were given a choice of Vodka, Tequila and Carlsberg beer.

At around 9pm, the HOT FM DJs started playing games with the invitees. They made use of the club's foam pool (and smell is kinda strong) and played their first water game. We also celebrated JJ's birthday, singing out loud a birthday song.

And then... it really was MUST DRINK FRIDAY. The service crew poured liqour directly from the bottles into party-goers mouth. It's a crazy bunch.

Who want's vodka and tequila shots?

Round two of freeflow. The service crew popped champagne. Oh my... We were there trying to get our cups filled when they decided to pop the champagne. Hence, we were kinda drenched in champagne. Haha..

The event supposedly ends at 10pm, but the club opened up an additional 15minutes of freeflow. But only available at the bar outside. The floor of the bar outside is soaked in foam water from the pool.

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.

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…
