My Valentines Day

It started with a sweet hidden presents exchange. I hid mine in a blanket (it's original position is rumpled, at the end of the bed), and he kind of jumped onto the bed and the legs hit something hard. Mine is hidden under the pillow. All hidden in parts of the bed.

I love my present alot~ Thanks! <3



Valentines day is also the day we start work. After work, we went to Ssikkek BBQ near Outram Park MRT. Luckily we made reservations. I was being kiasu, and made him make reservations. The other time he went was a weekday lunch, hence the one over the phone told him that there won't be alot of people, so it was ok to just walk in. But on this evening, there was already a queue snaking before we reach.

The entrance

We were give a table that is joined with another couple. Seriously the girl next to me has got big attitude problem. We just got to the table, and I was standing next to my chair. At the same time, the girl wants to go out. She can't just say excuse me, but push the chair roughly to aside with a loud "TSK". Duh... Open your mouth girl to talk.... And see the situation. I'm not purposely trying to block your way.

There are many TVs around the place, all showing different K-Pop MVs. But there's only one audio. Also K-Pop. Haha.. Audio don't match videos. We ate lots of meat in lettuce. The lettuce is not as fresh as the one we had before in Bornga. Overall a satisfying meal.

Self service

Side dish, sushi. Looks ugly, but taste YUMMY

Meat meat meat

It costs $52 for the two of us. We were smelling like smoke and food when we left the place. Even after finishing our meal, there are still people coming in for BBQ Korean food. Quite worth for the amount to pay.

The day would have ended brilliantly if the second part of my present came. He told me that I was supposed to have received a bouquet today. But after calling the merchant, the reply he was given was... the item was to be dispatched in the month of February. Not the actual day. What rubbish reply. Disappointed with them...
See my complaint post.

I finally received my part two present. 12 days after Valentines Day. What "great" service. Rubbish.. But apart from the horrible service, the bouquet is pretty. Sweet and pretty <3

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…
