1 Market by Chef Wan

1 Market has been opened for a while and my first time here with 3 girlfriends. Our celebration of Hari Raya holidays. Lunch starts at 11.30am and I was early. People were peeping in curiously and about 10 minutes before opening, both the walk-in and reservations queue were long. 

Located on level 4 of the new extension of Plaza Singapura, 1 Market is a buffet themed huge restaurant by chef Redzuawan Ismail, more widely known as Chef Wan, http://mychefwan.com/, a Singapore-born Malaysian celebrity chef. 1 Market is also a collaboration with foodcourt chain, Food Junction. An important fact of 1 Market, it is a halal buffet restaurant, a great place for gathering with friends who are muslim.

We were seated just next to the cold seafood counter. First attack: snow crabs and prawns!


The prawns were DELICIOUS. I had six? haha High cholesterol. However the long legs of the snow crab is a little too salty and we think that they were not super fresh? Why? The meat was stuck to the shell. The other time I had snow crab legs elsewhere, we only need to cut a little and pull, and the meat will come out nicely. But now when I pull, only a little meat was detached from the shell and alot of cutting need to be done. 


Next, sushi and sashimi~ Yum yum...



There were alot of cooked, hot food to choose from. The food were cooked in a very Malay style.



The satay is pretty nice. You can choose beef or chicken satay.


Chef TS making rojak for us to eat.


The keropok is nice. haha we ate quite a lot of these. Really nice.


Finally, desserts! We were all very full from eating, but there is ALWAYS place for desserts and coffee. The spread of desserts is not a much as I had hoped for. Just this corner.


Girlfriends went to stock a plateful of desserts and cookies. I love the chocolate almond cookies. Yummy.


Waffle ice cream. I was disappointed with the waffle. It's hard and cold. For the ice cream, you have to ask the chef over the counter. You can choose Vanilla or strawberry and the syrup topping is self serve.


Chef Wan's reminder: Love food. Don't waste it. Take only what you can finish =)


A super duper filling lunch with my pretty girlfriends. To be honest, there was a point (not even halfway into the meal), I was feeling drowsy and stoning away while encouraging them to eat more hahaha


Not too sure whether the dinner dishes are the same as lunchtime. I wouldn't mind going back for a lunchtime buffet, but for dinner, it's a little pricey. Call +65 6341 9159 to make a reservation before heading there.

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.



臺鐵便當 Railway Bento Hubby's one of the must eat whenever we are …

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…
