Exercise at Punggol Waterway Park then Chill at Frienzie Bar & Bistro

A girl's day out at Sengkang/Punggol.

Girlfriend X was suggesting to go for a jog at Punggol Waterway Park for some exercise instead of our usual eat or sing or shopping gathering. Before the walk-a-jog session, we unloaded our stuff at girlfriend C's place and we went a little off track playing with Baobao, C's 9 month old poodle. So cute. She kept barking at us when we were at the door. Guess she's scared of us, but she got better after a while.

And off we go, running all the way from C's place to the Sengkang park to Punggol Waterway Park. We stopped running after a few hundred metres into PWP. Tired. Especially me, as I'm like the heaviest among all. Oh my knees....


The view's pretty

The park is very big. I doubt I can run finish the entire park. Maybe in future, but definitely not now.

Love this mural.

Feeling tired, we detoured and took a LRT from Damai station to Riviera station instead of walking. X suggested dinner at Tebing Lane. And boy, was I surprised to see Frienzie Bar & Bistro, the place misslittlepatches frequents and I have yet to go after so long. And this place is surprisingly near to a LRT station. So I got my girlfriends let us to have our dinner there. Haha...

The place was still not packed when we reached. We were the only group attired in our sports wear.


Happy hour promotion. Everyday. We got one Heineken and one Erdinger. Total four for the price of two. Happy.

Cobb Salad [S$16.90++] - Mesclun salad, watercress, grilled chicken, bacon, tomato, egg & roquefort cheese top with avocado pulp - We wanted to try something different from the usual Caesar Salad, hence we ordered this. Overall looks ok, tastes ok too, but the cheese, the roquefort cheese, is a little too unique for our tastebuds.


Hawaii 5-0 [S$16.90++] - Baked Ham, pineapple and mozzarella cheese - We love this. The thin crispy crust is like a biscuit. One won't really feel sick or duper full from eating loads of this as compared to the normal crust pizza.


Crispy Wings [S$13.90++] 6 pieces - Shrimp paste coated wings fried till golden brown -


Pretty view. Comfortable breeze. Cosy ambience. I like the place. Only problem was that during 7pm till 9pm, the place was playing Chinese/Tibetian Orchestra kind of music. Very weird.


Punggol Waterway Park is a nice place for family walks, picnics with loved ones, or a jog with your dog. The only drawback for me is, I have to travel about 1 hour 30 minutes on a public transport to reach.

As for Frienzie, same drawback, but it's really a good place to chill for the North-Easterners. Love the food and ambience.

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…
