Chiso Zanmai

The requirements for the birthday dinner is, as usual, eat all you can: BUFFET. Haha... Went to Openrice's website to search. There were alot of choices. Picked Chiso Zanmai. Looks affordable and it's a Japanese buffet. *slurps* Eat all you can.... Sashimi~~ And the reviews looks not that bad...

It's located in the maze-alike, The Central at Clarke Quay, second level. We entered from the mall's main entrance and into this long white corridor.

And yep, it's the entrance/exit of the place. And we are greeted with, the dessert section. LOL. If you came in from this entrance, you have to walk further into the restaurant to the counter, which is in the middle of the restaurant, and next to an escalator. Another entrance from level one.

Here's the pricing. $29.99++ and $1.99++ per person for us. Friday dinner.

There's a promotion ongoing till 15th May 2013. Hokkaido Seafood Miso Hotpot for every 4 pax reservation. Sad, not valid for us. There are only two of us.........

Here's what they serve in May.

After making payment at the cashier, we are ushered to our table. And also this very confusing table card. We only understood it when we were about to leave. haha

First stop, Sashimi~~~ Thickly sliced sashimi salmon and tuna

Sampled a crab paste toufu, macha toufu, and a shrimp.

The fried section. I love the corn cream croquette =P

More fried skewers

Tonkatsu ramen. yummy

Self serve seafood tomato stew. The birthday man loves this lots.

Desserts counter.

Pretty tarts

The desserts I took. Love the La Opera cake. The one on the top left. Coffee chocolate cake

Self serve soft cone. Vanilla ice cream with toppings. Really like icecream with crispy cornflakes

Here is the other entrance, facing Singapore River, near to the road side. If you are thinking of having Japanese buffet here, ^^ go in via this entrance and save yourself from the possibility of getting lost. haha

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.

臺鐵便當 Railway Bento Hubby's one of the must eat whenever we are …

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…
