Bonia pop up store : 'Thank you' party

Invited by CK to join her, CF and HP to the Bonia pop up store 'Thank you' party. Thanks guys for the invitation.

The Bonia pop up store is launched in celebration of its 39th anniversary. It is located at Orchard Green, next to the Singapore Visitors Centre and opposite H&M from May 10 to 19 (But the Mcee yesterday mentioned about the extension till May 31)

Bonia's brand ambassador is the popular, beautiful Taiwanese model/actress, Sonia Sui 隋棠. She's so pretty! Ok. She's not there that evening, but saw the photos and videos of her at the press conference and the launch. Here's a signed Bonia bag on display at the popup store. 

It was a very hot evening and I was sweating buckets.

DJ TwoFace are playing for the evening. They are a two girl dj team. Pretty ladies and very spontaneous for the photographers.

There were finger food and drinks served, self serve. Hee.. Lots of chocolatey desserts. But my tummy's too full from dinner earlier on. 

Our selective picks of food and drinks. Initially I thought that the BONIA logo was printed on the sticks, I was like WOW. After careful examination, I then realise, it's pasted on. haha 

We took a walk around the pop up store. It's a two storey, pretty spacious and air conditioned (We were so happy to be cooled down) place. There were competition designed works (Awards were given out later in the evening), special edition pieces, vintage pieces, some items not for sale and of course, some for purchase.

I love this range of shoes. It feels soft, comfy and sweet looking. However, these are not for sale.

As the evening progressed, there was an award presentation to the student designers, and also a lucky draw, giving out prizes to three lucky invitees present during the lucky draw. 

Near the end of the party, Bonia gave out the big prize, a trip for two to Milan, to the Instagram #BONIA39 contest's winner. For the top 5 instagram contest winners, each was given a $150 worth of Bonia vouchers.

The popup store has been extended till May 31, so head down to the Bonia popup store before it moves to its next destination, Kuala Lumpur.

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…
