Taipei Station

Skimmed through the store directory some time back when my friend wanted to eat at Bugis+ and it's one of my "want-to-try" places for Taiwan's light meal or light bite snacking.

We were in Bugis yesterday and I remembered this place. We gotten a set to share as it seems more worth it. A set includes one main, one side and one drink, to choose between milk green tea with pearls or jasmine green tea with pearls.

The small cafe is designed in white and red. White for the tables and triangle motifs on the bright red wall. The counter and the chair are red in color too. The place is quite small, similar to a normal Yakun cafe. Lots of tables and stools, sharing the long detachable tables with others. Squeezy. But the dining concept should be to eat and go, not for chill and chitchat.

After ordering, we were given a reciept with a number. The counter will then buzz the number when the order is ready. We had cold noodles with peanut sauce, sweet potato fries and a milk green tea with pearls.

Everything is packed in disposable ware. I was quite skeptical with the outlook. Not quite sure whether it's worth snacking there.

But one mouthful of the cold noodles in peanut sauce dispelled all negativity. Yum~ The peanut sauce is thick, not those diluted kind. It's only that there should be more cucumber and carrot. I can't bear to finish the noodles. It's so tasty.

The sweet potato fries are tossed in plum powder form, giving a sweet sour taste. AL finds the taste too strong, but it's just nice for me.

The milk green tea with pearls is normal. At least it doesn't taste diluted like the previous taiwan place we went. It's my first time drinking milk GREEN tea.

Definitely a place for return trips. Next time we'll try their other food and see if the others are also worth going. Eating there made me feel as if we were in Taiwan, reminding me of our trips to Taiwan.

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…
