Hello Kitty Fairy Tales plushies - #5 The Singing Bone

The last Hello Kitty of the McDonald's Hello Kitty Fairy Tales plushies is officially on sale today. However, all Hello Kitty The Singing Bone plushies are sold out even before it's 12 midnight. Sold out on Wednesday before it is officially on sale on Thursday.

People started queueing on Wednesday evening before 8pm at outlets that are opened 24hours. And McDonald's decided to give out coupons to those in queue, the number of coupons = the number of dolls. So technically, even before it's 11pm, most of the places were already out of stock.

These are NOT mine. Credits to Friend's fren.

For those outlets that opens in the morning, people were already queuing outside the shop after McDonald's closed their doors to end the day. Overnight queuing.

We KPO went to Lot 1's outlet to check out the queue. Lot 1 outlet opens in the morning.

Yep, we attempted to queue. Reached at 1145pm. And we are FAR FAR FAR away from the counter. We queued for about 30minutes before going back. The staff came over to say no more coupons... and I think we are queued 200% behind the people with coupons. Sighs..

While queuing, we saw alot of things. Since the place we went to has drive thru, people were queuing in their cars, thus, leading to a traffic holdup. And since it's near a junction, can you imagine how dangerous it is? And cars are trying to cut into the queue by squeezing the inner lane cars. We saw alot of almost scratch kind. And best of all, there was a police car trying to go out... But stuck. Even when the policeman came down to make the 2nd lane cars go off, they did not move off, stubbornly waited for a chance to cut in...

Can you see the police car? It can't move. Even sounding the siren, nobody moved.

And... if you go McDonald's Singapore Facebook or ebay or anywhere, people are busy selling at high price from their loot. Damn irritating. But I love this... THUMBS UP for the prankster.

Kenna plucked! Yay...

Sighs.... Now I'm one kitty short for the series. Just great.

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…
