Mitju Warehouse Sale

Mitju Warehouse Sale is back again this weekend. The previous Mitju warehouse sales I went to, I loot at least 2 pairs of shoes. Huge sales! So, I went to try my luck, thinking that since the sales starts at 10am on Friday, I will reach around 10am, giving me more than enough time to avoid the crowd and queue.


Boy, was I wrong. I reached 15 minutes past 10am, and here's the queue! Freaking long. I for waited at least 45 minutes to get in... Sighs... I was overly confident that I could beat the crowd. Haha..


Finally, I am nearing the door into the heaven with mountains of shoes... Yep, just at least another 5 sets of 10 queuers before me.....


Inside, was the same as previous two warehouse sales. But this year, the shoes are not as cheap as the last. Sobs. This year, each pair of shoes costs $20 and two pairs cost $35. They have a premium section selling 1 for $30 and 2 for $50. (Just to share, last year, the "normal" shoes were selling at 1 for $18 and 2 for $25)

Even though Friday is just the first day of the public sales (Thursday evening from 6 to 9.30pm, they had a members only sale), there were at least 5 pairs of shoes that I like does not carry my size. I have the most common size feet, Size 38. Sobs... I was "rejected" by so many courteous sales youngsters. But I still scouted 2 pairs and headed for payment after an hour.

From the "stage" where the cashiers are, we can see the crowd. Yep, it's to a point that you can't even move along the passageway. Sighs.. I didn't even got to see the super sales shoes on the extreme right. The girls are not giving my any space to slot myself in. Haha..


Here's my loot. The pink soft leather shoes retails at $42.90 (I wanted to get the same design but in black too, but no size...). The blue leopard print with gold colour in front retails at $29.90. This is the pair that I managed to find after so many rejections. So I saved $37.80! Yay~

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…
