Prince Taiwan Porridge

I wasn't feeling that well, with a pretty bad appetite the entire day, not able to finish my food. Hubby decided that we will have a light dinner. Taiwan porridge near Bukit Panjang. We went past the place several times and yet to try out the place.

The place was pretty full when we reached about 8pm. Maybe we expected more from the place due to its name. So when we went through to menu only to see a tse char list, and not really the Taiwanese delicacies that we were hoping for, we were a little disappointed. But we still placed our order. We chose "healthier", easy-on-the-stomach dishes.

Steamed Minced Pork with Egg Yolk - $7.00 (without GST) - When the dish came, our jaws dropped. Haha.. It looked very very very different from the menu and from the yummy steamed minced pork with egg yolk that we had in Taiwan. Ok, we gave it a chance, not judging a book by its cover. And sad to say, we were unable to finish even one third of it. The minced pork stinks badly. The hubby says the meat is not fresh. Even when I attempt to dip a piece of the meat in chilli to cover the taste, the foul taste is still there. Yucks. Disappointment.

Tapioca Leaves - $8.00 (without GST) - This dish, taste normal. Just that, it costs $8.00 for a plate of vegetables, with nothing else. A VERY very expensive plate of vegetables. Sorry. I am not happy with this dish at all. Not worth it.

Beancurd with Preserved Egg - $7.00 (without GST) - This looks nice. And luckily, it tastes nice too. Cold toufu and preserved egg with pork floss. I am glad that finally something tastes nice.

On the menu, they mentioned that the wet tissues are not refundable. So, we have to use them. Each wet tissue costs $0.30 (without GST).

The meal costs a total of $30.40 (includes 7% GST). Each bowl of sweet potato porridge costs $0.60 (without GST). I had a bottle of barley drink at $2.50 (without GST), while the hubby had a hot chinese tea at $1.50 (without GST).

To be honest, we were both very very disappointed in the dinner. I'm not sure if it was because of our choice of dishes, or maybe the food were not to our taste, especially since there are so many people dining there. Sorry, but I will not be going back there for a second time. No no...

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…
