Staycation at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore at RWS - Part 1

My secret staycation is finally here. I think I waited about 2 months since the day the hubby asked me to keep the 3 days free. Hint was a rock picture. And I guessed Hard Rock Hotel. Of course, no confirmation was given, so I had to wait patiently.

And I'm not dumb after all. I so smart! Haha...

After checking in, we took this bejeweled lift up to our room. We are staying on the highest level. By the way, the whole place looks dark. From the lobby, to the lifts and to the corridors. Reminded me of Hard Rock Hotel in Macau (though we did not stay there). I guess that's the image they wanna portray.

And here's our room! Looks nice and comfy. Though it's a little weird to have three other guys in the room with us. Love the feeling of the room. By the way, on the left side of the king sized bed, there is a pull out bed for a third person (that is chargeable for the stay).

The divider for the room and toilet is semi opaque. The lights are part of the dressing mirror. Good thing is, it's very stylo. Bad thing about the semi opaque divider is... In the middle of the night, when we go toilet and turn on the wrong light, that's it... Haha..

Love the side sofa area. Good setup for some photos indoors to get silhouette photos.

Personalised greeting. I guess this is very common nowadays. By the way, the TV is powered by Singtel. And it is soooooooooo laggy. Sighs. Flipping channels is a chore.

Minibar. Coffee, tea and water are free. The rest chargeable.

In the toilet. The stylo dressing table. Rock star style mirror and a guitar shaped necessity mini shelving. There is a chair to sit while you blow dry your hair or do your makeup.

Breakfast is complimentary at the Starz Restaurant. Amazed by the amount of people from all over the world. I seldom see queues to get a table for breakfast in a hotel. Lots of families stay in this hotel too.

Full house. The queue to get a table was long.

My favourite corner of the buffet spread. For our two days breakfast, we noticed the food choices, are the same. Some difference in the pastry counter, but the rest is the same.

The swimming pool is shared by the other hotel guests too. When we were queuing to get our towels, there were guests coming from Festive Hotel too. I wonder how many hotels are sharing this pool?

We spent some time soaking in this pool. The long straight pool, without much people.

There is a mini water slide for the kids too.

They have this mini beach at the swimming pool too. Great for young kids to play.

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…
