Hello Kitty Fairy Tales plushies - #4 The Ugly Duckling

I am lucky to be able to get the forth Hello Kitty from the Hello Kitty Fairy Tales series: The Ugly Duckling. One more to complete the set.



McDonald's Singapore finally made an announcement last night. To limit each customer to buy a maximum of 4 Hello Kitty in one transaction. Like finally... Everyone was complaining about not able to buy the Hello Kitty: The Ugly Duckling as early at 7am in the morning in some places. And complaining WHY some people are able to buy 11 Hello Kitty: The Ugly Duckling at one go. I am one of the complaining people, as I am unhappy people snap up many Hello Kitty dolls for SALE, to earn profit.


While queuing to get my Hello Kitty: The Ugly Duckling, there are two late teen girls. Both queuing side by side in two counters. The one behind me, G1, was getting on my nerves.
G1: (very loudly) Every week come eat McD with you will get fat.
G2: (murmur reply)
G1: (very loudly) Do you think I should buy a Hello Kitty to sell? Online sell $20-$50. I can sell like $20. People will buy. You think I should?
G2: Don't want la. Like very jek ark
G1: (very loudly) I think I SHOULD (and she bought like 3?)

Please people. Some of us just wants to collect a series and not to sell for profit. And yet we have to queue and fight for a chance from you people. Keep this kind of thoughts to yourself. It's disheartening to see sellers have so many stocks while collectors are without one. And stop posting your kitty sale on McDonald's Facebook page. Go somewhere else. McDonald's Singapore had already requested you guys to stop doing such a thing from the earlier kitties.

One more to go. The Singing Bone. Hopefully I am able to get this.

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.

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…
