OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding

While we were doing some grocery shopping, the hubby decided to try out the OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding. We saw this during the previous shopping, but was considering whether to try. So we decided to try this time. OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding is selling at $5.50 from NTUC Fairprice.

On the packaging, this big pack of OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding states that it consists 5 servings. And in my mind, I was thinking instant mash potato style. 5 small packs of soya beancurd pudding powder to mix with hot water, stir and it will be hardened.


But I was wrong. The big pack contains one big pack of soya beancurd powder and 5 oven safe disposable bowls. Ahh. I have to make all 5 at one go. And the powder needs to be boiled. Hmm.. Cham.. How to finish them?


No choice then. To eat, we have to make all of them together. Here are the steps provided.
  1. Dissolve a packet of OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding Powder into a pot of 1000ml water. Stir well until boil.
  2. Pour mixture into containers provided and set in room temperature until cool.
  3. Chill in refrigerator for 1-2 hours until firm. Serve chill. Makes 5 servings.

So, I dissolved the powder into a pot of 1000ml water. Mine is not really a pot, but any pot works. And I have to keep stirring.


Initially, the powder was a little clumpy when mixed into the hot water. But with consistent stirring for sometime, the clumps were dissolved. Be patient. (I was impatient haha)


Next, was to pour the mixture into containers provided and set in room temperature until cool. Happy with what I did, even though it wasn't much effort here.


After cooling, it's time to chill them in refrigerator for 1-2 hours until the pudding becomes firm. Looks like I'm in some production line making many bowls of OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding eh?


And, TA-dah... the final product after being chilled for three whole hours. It was still pretty watery after two hours. I guess my refrigerator was not cold enough?


Even after chilling for three hours, the pudding is still watery, although much better than the recommended two hours. Sighs.. Let's try overnight chilling. Hopefully it will be better. (To be updated tomorrow)

[Update: 16th May 2014 3:00pm - The pudding is still as watery as last night. Total chilled time: 20 hours. I think if we were to buy and try again, though I doubt I will, I would use 900ml of water instead of 1000ml]


I wonder how long can we keep this in the refrigerator. To be safe, I think we have to finish this in two consecutive days.

Here's someone who wishes to try out the beancurd pudding too...

  1. Hi, you wondering why your beancurd is not a success maybe you have to boil it abit longer. You can keep the pudding in the fridge for 5-7 days.

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…
