My Weekend

Last friday, went back to my parents' place with a durian swiss roll to 孝敬 my mummy for the coming Mother's Day. Hope she likes it. And I had gotten feedback that the previous time when I went home with a Mango and Chocolate swiss roll, they prefer the Chocolate flavour too. Same thoughts.

Then it was durian swiss rolls delivery the to my GFs staying in the North. They also thought of treating their mother and mother-in-law durian swiss rolls. Hmm.. Does all mothers like durian? haha

And I had finally collected my Denim Absolut. Thanks Janice for helping me buy. It's been a while.... A new member to my collection.

Saturday was pretty dull. Housework in the day and I only got out of the house in the evening for dinner. Simple dinner at a coffeeshop with the Hubby and FIL. The hubby and I then went dating at West Coast Park. Sea breezing while we chit chatted. Ended the night with a Sundae each before heading home.

"Sweet endings" at WCP McDonalds

Sunday. It's Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers and mothers-to-be. Oh mummy don't want to come out for dinner as she feels that every where is crowded with people.

It was almost as dull as my Saturday. Housework in the day. And I am glad the sun managed to dry all the clothes but I was sweating like mad even right out from a bath. The hubby and I had dinner at Chong Pang. Almost every stall has a long queue.

On our way to Chong Pang Market

Satay 5 chicken, 5 pork, 1 rice [$5.50], Hokkien Mee [$3.50], Oyster Omelette [$4.00]

After dinner, we bought Lao Ban tou hua to Yishun Dam for stargazing. There were lots of stars in the sky, with a smiley moon.

Do you see the stars and the smiley moon?

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…
