Paris Baguette Cafe

I had always wanted to try Paris Baguette. The place was one of the to-try, highlighted by misslittlepatches. Paris Baguette is a Korean based bakery which has outlets in countries like China, California, New York, and others. A new addition in the Singapore food industry. The first outlet is in Wisma Atria.

Ying was bored from the home-work-home routine, so we arranged for dinner at Jem, the newest shopping mall in Jurong East. Our original aim was to shop with our birthday gift vouchers from Chyi. But first off, dinner. We were hungry. And I remembered the pretty cafe in Jem, so, we went. Luckily we managed to spot an empty table.

The cafe is located on the 2nd level. From the linkway between the MRT and the mall, turn right, and you will be able to spot the cafe easily.

The queue for the food is long and non-stop. Luckily it was pretty fast. Though I wasn't so lucky, as they were all too busy for me.

The Royal Pudding seems like a must-try. Everyone's raving about it. I wonder is it really that nice. Pretty bottles, and a little pricey too.

Lots of tarts, bread, pastries to choose from.

They have pretty cakes!

Tray for eat-in. Cool eh. But it was a little difficult to hold from the height over the counter. 

Pad Thai Noodle Salad [$8.50] - Ying's main. With everything mixed in, chewy noodles, fresh ingredients with the sweet sour sauce, it's pretty delicious.

Seafood Chowder bread [$6.00] - My main. A little disappointed. The soup is great, with one fresh prawn. But the bread is sooooooo HARD. Difficult to pull apart even using both hands and difficult to chew too. HARD.

Crunch Crunch Choco [$6.50] - I love this. Dessert. Treat from Ying. Chocolate cake with crispy coco balls in between the layers. Decorated with two grapes. Green is yummy, red was yucky sour with seeds. haha..

Strawberry Royal Pudding [$4.50] - Yet to try this. Bought this home for the hubby. Pretty and expensive. haha..

Overall, love the place, love the food. But it's on the pricey side. Would love to go there again and when I feel richer or when I wanna pamper myself. 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…
