Hill Top Restaurant

My dad said that my brother misses me a lot and wants to have a family dinner together since everyone is available. I'm sure that my dad is joking on the first part. haha... My sister suggested going to this Hill Top Restaurant near Jurong Birdpark for Curry Fish Head. The drive uphill in the evening is accompanied by my beloved family and a beautiful sunset.

By the way, it's free parking after 5pm on Sundays. Free Parking Rocksss. haha..

We did not make any reservations and I was worried that we may need to wait. Luckily there were tables available. Not full, but the crowd is there. Quite surprising as the location is quite far off. The waitress is very hardworking in refilling our cups with iced water. We need not ask even once for a refill. Cool! And the food came pretty fast.

Ikan Kepala Masak Merah (Fish Head with Chilli Gravy) - Medium [$33.00] - Yummy Yummy. Spicy, but shiok. Sipping the gravy like it was soup. Sour, spicy and a little sweet. Nice. Quite alot of meat too. Our comments were there were little bones and easy to eat. It's only near the end of the meal we know where all the bones went. Haha.. My dad's plate was covered with bones.

Telor Dadar Bahan Laut (Fried Egg with Seafood) - Small [$16.00] - Very expensive egg. We didn't really want to order this, but the other two version of egg was with chilli. Nothing fantastic.

Fried Kang Kong with Sambal - Small [$9.00] - Crunchy and spicy with the sambal. Mum's comment was that the kang kong was too thick (粗). I asked if it was a good thing or bad. haha... Both Mum and Dad said that if the Kang Kong was thinner, it would be nicer.

Kai Lan - Small [$9.00] - Pretty normal tasting. Not much comments on this.

Tauhu Telor (Fried Beancurd with Egg & Shrimp Paste) - Small [$9.00] - I like this. Love how the grounded peanut and the beancurd and cripsy veggie taste together. Also maybe because the sauce is a little sweet.

Jurong Hill Top Restaurant. Hmm.. The wet tissue (and I suppose refillable cold water) costs $0.70 per person

There's Teppan Yaki, Japanese food and Indonesian food in the restaurant. Ours was under the Indonesian menu.

The sun was setting when we parked the car. Excellent sunset scene. Just that it's covered by trees, and I can't seem to go nearer to the sunset without being blocked by even more trees 

Excellent view from the top of the building which you have to climb up. Forgot to capture a photo of the exterior, the building or however the place is to be described (not sure what to call that).

Total bill for 6 person amounts to $100.90. Not very expensive, neither is it cheap. Recommended for the Fish Head with Chilli Gravy. Delicious.

Definitely will visit again for the fish head, if we are nearby. haha...

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…
