The hubby had me decide on the lunch location, since I rejected his buffet idea. And after reviewing online for a cafe that is opened on a Monday (lots of nice cafes were closed on Monday), we finally found Symmetry. I like the food photos posted by previous customers. Check out Symmetry on Burpple:

Online reservations is available. Head to their website,, and click on the top right most button to reserve. However, the reserved time slot may not be given on time if there are just too many customers. We waited 25 minutes for our table to be available and ready. The place was already very crowded when we reached (10 minutes before our reserved timing, so in total we waited under the hot sun for 35 minutes) and there were many still waiting for their table.

They have this app by the door where you can get your queue number and take in your requirements, eg, table for how many pax, preferred seating location (indoors, outdoors or bar seats). Key in your mobile number and the system will alert you when the table is ready. I received an automated call when our table was ready. Cool.

I had already done my homework online by checking out their menu, but it was the brunch menu and not the lunch menu that we were given. So I have to rethink what to eat. And sadly the side that I wanted, Bacon & Cheese Rissoles, was not available.

Big Breakfast [S$24]
2 eggs of choice, maple-glazed bacon, smoked salmon, chicken cheese sausage, sauteed mushroom, mesclun, jam & toast
I had bits and pieces of the hubby's order. Love the harshbrown, even hubby likes it too (he's not a potato fan). The sausage is tasty though I did not taste any melted cheese in it (I did not realise that it's a cheese sausage until now). The hubby thinks overall it's tasty, and would come and try out other meals.

Pork Croissant [S$19]
pork belly, caramelized onions, hickory sauce, scrambled eggs, mustard
I love the taste of the pork croissant. I was a little skeptical about it initially (as I desired another main) but it is indeed delicious. I was unable to taste the croissant though, as the tasty fillings overwhelmed it. There are two slices of pork belly in it and they just melt in your mouth. The roasted tomato has a little sweet taste to it. Overall, the seasoning/sauce made my whole meal very delicious.

The little things in Symmetry.

The indoor seating is quite small, with a little less than 20 table groups and about 5 pairs of counter seats. Walking space is a little small too. But hey, we went on a public holiday, so I assume that's the reason for the overcrowding. Overall Symmetry is a cosy place to enjoy a cup of coffee with delicious food over with some friends.

Symmetry charges 7% GST and 10% service charge, and our bill came to a total of $50.70.

Definitely heading back here again to try out what is on the lunch menu, enjoy a cup of coffee and try the Bacon & Cheese Rissoles that I had missed out. But if the crowd was to be the same and the weather is just as horribly hot, maybe I would think twice and come back another day instead.

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…
