PUB Family Day

Today is PUB Family Day and it was held at Sentosa. My sister invited us to join them in a day of fun and charity. She is in the committee for the Charity Run, and to show our support, my dad, mum, the hubby and I participated in the Charity Leisure Walk.

We reached around 7.30am and the day was kicked off with a warm up session. Next, the Charity relay race was on. My family and I were by the side, cheering them on, though we had no idea who was who. Neither do we know who won. Haha.. Some of the teams were more united as the team members ran alongside the current runner, cheering on loudly.

Finally it was our turn. The Charity Leisure Walk. We thought it was a jog, so my family jogged. Haha.. Not as many people signed up for this event compared to the relay run. A little disorganised, but it was still a successful event done by my sister and the committee. Great job.

We spent the rest of the day eating the icecream provided, went for a lucky spin (I wasn't too lucky >.< ), laughing and clapping along the stage games for the kids and adults. The mcee is a funny guy and he's good at getting the crowd to the right atmosphere.

One downside of the event, many were too anxious to get the lunch provided. The lunch is to be issued only at 10.45am. And there is already a long queue at 9.30am. The lunch is already pre allocated, so why not enjoy yourself at the games (there were archery games, the hamster ball thing, the gladiator games and more), and not stand under the hot hot sun for more than one hour? Got a guy even shouted and complained about queuing in the sun. Haha.. We were enjoying our ice cream in the shade when that happened. 

The family day included tickets to the SEA Aquarium at RWS, but I was too tired from being in the sun, and worried that it's the same for my dad, and the hubby was needed elsewhere in the afternoon, so I had suggested that we arranged another day to visit the Aquarium since the tickets were valid till the end of the year. And to go with my brother and sister too, making it a whole family event. I think I kind of disappointed my mum by suggesting it. Sorry Mummy T.T we will go there next month.

The lucky draw prizes. Mummy spun a Namecard Holder, while I spun a pack of Ang Bao packs.

Our souvenirs for participating in the Charity Run. Cute plushies.

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…
