RWS: USS Hollywood After Party

Big thanks to CF for inviting me to join her at this event. 

The Hollywood After Party is a parade event in Universal Studios Singapore. It is a weekly event happening every Saturday night from 3rd November 2012 to 5th January 2013, starting from 7pm till late. There are two types of ticket sales. The $20 ticket entitles you entry to the park, not including the park's shows and attractions, and a cup of complimentary drink. The $33 ticket entitles the entry to the park, also not including the shows and attractions and free flow of drinks. 

CF's tickets were worth $20. The ticketing office told her that we are able to enjoy the free flow of drinks too if we purchase the $13 topup in the park.

Our Tickets

We entered the park a little past 7pm, and there were some characters still around for photo taking. And at the entrance, was Kungfu Panda. I was so excited. I wanted to take photos with him. I was not able to catch him for a photo the last time I was in USS.

We toured abit of the park, but most of the areas were closed off. Well, the event does not include entry to the shows and attractions. But we were able to move around in that T zone, starting from the main entrance. 

The sky looks so pretty today. A gradient of yellow, orange, red, purple, blue.....
Far far away land looks even more dreamy with the pinkish clouds.

As the event started from 7pm, the street was filled with excitement. There's last minute photo taking with some characters, some performers in stilts, the local live band was already playing, and projector tv showing the ongoing football match. We immerse ourselves in the bustling street, listening and people watching... And just about 8pm, almost everyone were in "front". And *boomed*. Fireworks!! I love fireworks. The fireworks display is not very long, but it's pretty~

After the fireworks display, the DJ-MC is back to work. Spinning music and later played games with the little kids, giving out USS keychains, tshirts and more.. It's fun watching the kids play. When they are immersed in playing, they really play. They are cute.

The little ones are adorable.

We queued and redeemed the drinks. It's a very hot day.

The local live band performing, Goodfellas, were SUPERB. I love their music. Their choice of songs, their playing, their singing. The band is a resident band playing in Timbre.


Big thanks again to CF for inviting me. I had a really really great time~ Thank you~
*Borrowed some photos from your blog too. Thank you~

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…
