Latte went grooming

We brought Latte for his first grooming session. It's a Groupon deal bought for basic grooming at a pawlor in Toa Payoh. On our way there, he was all active and as usual, kaypo.

We were there earlier than the appointed timing, but Latte seems reluctant to go in. I had to go in first before he follow suit.

Inside, there were about 5 other dogs. All barking non stop. Excited? The resident dog seem to be barking at me though, since I'm the stranger human.

Latte needs a top up of $15 since he's a bigger breed, and after settling the payment, I handed the leash over to the lady. Latte DID NOT want to move. It was like moving a rock. She was unable to pull him in. Just nice, the hubby came in after parking the car. So he took back the leash and led Latte into the small space behind.

The other dogs just barked even more. And Latte looks so cutely cowardly. I feel bad to leave him alone with the other stranger dogs, but it's time to start to learn to socialise with other pawdies and not just humans.

The grooming was estimated to end in 2 hours but we received the call earlier than that. While we were at the door, we saw a Japanese Spitz. Both hubby and I were thinking, the grooming changed Latte totally??? He looks soooo different, the size and the red eye stain. Haha.. We mistook another Spitz for Latte. Oops.

The lady said that everything went well, as long as owners are not around. AND... I did not know that dogs need that much grooming. The lady was saying, once a month for basic grooming and bi-monthly for a full groom. o m g?

I'm not too sure if Latte is that keen for such regular grooming. I mean, we do shower him ourselves, towel + blow dry him, then cut his nails (and he hated it) and cleaned his ears. His first trip to a pawlor left him, exhausted. He was sleeping all the way home. And he seems all tamed down when we left the place. I wonder what had happened.

Anyway Latte does not look much different from before the groom. Nails shorter, but just as sharp.

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…
