Uniqlo UT Pop-Up

Uniqlo UT Pop-Up: Happening on 4th and 5th May 2013 from 12pm to 10pm at 72-13 Mohd Sultan.

I had RSVP-ed via the website for the two day event. And lucky me had the confirmation and by going, I received a goodie bag and a chance to participate in the lucky draw. There's a UT Pop-Up 2013 mug and a Uniqlo notebook in a Uniqlo paper bag (I think they randomly gave out the design? I really like to get the Hello Kitty design though haha)

There are free shuttle buses to bring you to the event location. The buses are decal with UT Pop Up SIN for easy identification. The buses come every 10-minute interval between 1145AM and 830PM from two locations.
- City Hall MRT Exit B (Outside St Andrew's Cantheral)
- Somerset MRT Exit B (Public carpark beside 313@Somerset)

There is a queue to go into the place. The weather was sweating hot outside. We can't wait to get inside. When inside, we have to register at the registration counter by showing our emailer (although they didn't really read it and returned us) and our identification card.

Inside, there are loads of Uniqlo tshirt where you can choose yours to wear for the UT Camera photoshoot. UT Camera is available for download on both Google Play and Apple Store. Here's the gallery of all photos by the UT Camera:

I see some cute tshirts.

After the phototaking, it's another queue to go up to the pop up store on level two. The host was repeating the message to take a photo at the UT Camera booth to be eligible to the discount on tshirt purchase and also that the queue to level two was for crowd control.

It's time for shopping~ There are some collections that are on sale prior to retail sales.

The photos taken at level one are made into badges. You can collect them at the Badge Collection counter next to the cashier.

The final queue at the event was for payment. Of course, if you need to try your buys, the queue for the fitting room is not short either.

There are performances by Noise Singapore artists, see the highlights section on the website for the schedule. (Sadly at the timing while we were there, it's a break time. And I was kinda feeling giddy from the crowd and shopping to stay on). Before leaving, went to say hi to CF and G. They were queuing to go level 2 lol.

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…
