Have a Blissful and Happy Marriage, my dear friend

Today is finally the day. My girlfriend of 15 years, is finally getting married, after 12 years of dating. 要幸福快乐哦。Chosen today specifically for the numeric date: 1-3-14, in chinese, 一生一世

I am part of her bridal party. One of the seven 姐妹s. The day started at 7am, at her parents new place in Yishun. The 姐妹s prepared stuff for the groom's 兄弟 to settle at the gate crash. Most of the things had already been prepared by her younger sister.

And finally, the groom cleared all the task given and got to his pretty bride.


After the gatecrash, it's tea ceremony to her parents and we headed to the Seletar Reservoir for a quick outdoor photoshoot.

The place is pretty nice for photoshoot. I did not know of this place until today. When the outdoor photoshoot was completed, we headed for the groom's place for tea ceremony and lunch and we were off for a rest for the second part of the wedding.

After my rest, I kinda got emotional and started chatting in the group chat with my two girlfriends. After so many months of anxious waiting, preparing, nagging (mostly from me), my girlfriend is finally getting married today. And half of the day had already passed by successfully. Just another half to go. 嫁人了。为人妻了。要幸福。要快乐。事事都要为这个新家为优先。幸福的家是由两个人一起携手建造的。

The couple's wedding dinner is held at Peony Jade Clarke Quay. The restaurant is on the second level and they have this super retro lift. Cute in a way.


The both of us helped the bride into her evening gown for the second march in. A very pretty bride isn't she.


The day ended at around 11pm. Helped the couple packed up, stayed around to see if there are more stuff to help before leaving. Side note, Hubby and I were trapped in Liang Court carpark for about 30 minutes before we were out of the place. Too many cars trying to leave the building too. 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.

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…
