Christmas Eve

The hub is on off for the day and out little family went to collect his new IC and passport at ICA. Intended to go Bugis for lunch, but we backtracked back into the train when we saw the almost full train station. 

We ended up in Kallang Wave. I haven't been there before and neither has little Josie. First thing we went to do was to feed little Josie. BUT there wasn't any nursing room in this new (consider new as it's not even like more than 6 months) mall. Omg. We stood in the nappy room to feed. Ouch my back. 

Next was to feed the parents. We went to the Manhattan Fish Market located at level 1. The restaurant's entrance is outside the mall. There wasn't much people dining at that time since it was already 2 plus. We had the set lunches. 

Soup of the day was the Light Beetroot Soup. We had seen homecooks in Masterchef Australia using beetroot but we have never tasted it before. It's quite nice. Sweet and tasty. 

The hub's Scallop Americana. Spicy. Nay for me. Hub didn't really enjoy his meal as little Josie was fussing so he had to entertain our little boss. 

My Costa Baked Seafood with rice. There's fish, sotong and scallop (i think). Quite worth for the mix of seafood and it's filling.

Dessert that came with one of the topup. The Super Fruit Crumble. I love it. It's a double scoop vanilla icecream with cranberry bits on top, apple sauce by the sides and lots of crispy crumble on top, middle and bottom. I really love this dessert. And it's only $4.90 ala carte or extra $2 for the topup set lunch. Worth. 

This is the set lunch promotion the mfm is offering. We had one with drink and soup and another with drink, soup and dessert. The dessert is totally worth it. Haha..

After touring a little in the mall, we went to ubi to buy one roast duck home for dinner. Our annual roast duck feast for Christmas Eve. Just for the two of us. 

And not to forget, a year ago today, we bought and brought Latte home. He was so tiny and cute then. Now he's so mischievous. 

Before we went to bed, the hubby gave me a pink jacket Pooh for Christmas. Thank you *muacks*

Good night and Merry Christmas!

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…
