Life isn't fair

Yep. I'm back to reading that book. Again. "Which?" might be the question you would ask. It's none other than the four book series by Stephenie Meyer. I love this novel series, and my favourite is the last book, Breaking Dawn. This time, I am starting out with Book One, Twilight.

And this statement, in the earlier chapter of the book, by Bella to Edward, screamed in my face this morning... "Hasn't anyone ever told you? Life isn't fair."

There are so many unfair things happening to everyone of us everywhere across the globe, with each of us having a different definition for the word "fair". So what is being "fair" in your own definition?

Defining "Fair" on Google, these two are the more appropriate definitions to the topic
  1. In accordance with the rules or standards; legitimate
    • the group has achieved fair and equal representation for all its members
  2. Just or appropriate in the circumstances
    • to be fair, this subject poses special problems

Life isn't fair....
One is not able to earn as much as he desire. Life isn't fair. 
One is not able to get the toy his friend has. Life isn't fair. 
One is not able to get the recognition he desire. Life isn't fair. 
One's boyfriend does not buy the branded bag she wants. Life isn't fair. 
One grows up in a violent environment. Life isn't fair. 
One is abused physically and mentally. Life isn't fair. 
One works real hard and yet still is unable to provide a roof for his family. Life isn't fair. 
One only wants the basic means to fill his stomach and yet unable to do so. Life isn't fair. 

There is no "correct" measurement to define fairness in life. The unfairness in someone's life may be nothing to another. Comparing one's needs and wants with friends' or even strangers' is really a silly thing as everyone leads our own lives differently, thus everyone gets different results in their life. When one starts to make comparison and brooding over what others have and what he doesn't have, it will only lead to unhappiness. 

Live life happily. Stay positive. Unfairness happens to everyone, everywhere. I am sure we are all living in a much more "fair" life than others in some ways or another. Learn to be satisfied and cherish the "fair" things that are already in your life.

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…
