Baby led weaning - Carrot, Apple

Baby started eating solid food when she turned 6 months old. We chose to let her eat via baby led weaning. 

We only attempt once to twice a day. She still hasn't shown much interest in eating. Mostly gumming and sucking. So I wonder if we're doing it right. I hope so. 

Boiled carrots (10-13 April, 4days) - she was more interested in it, gumming more on the last day. 

Boiled apples (from 14 april for 4 days) - less interest as compared to carrots. I wonder why. Boiled apples actually taste really nice. Very sweet. 
// Update (17 Apr 2015) - we think she doesn't like boiled apples. Most of the apples end up on the floor than in her mouth :( Next up: Avocado. 

Here's what baby led weaning means in summary. 

And since she started on solids, it's time to introduce water. Drinking from a sippy cup. She can hold. She can put to her mouth. But unable to hold it high enough for the water to flow out. And she keep licking with her tongue. 

And babies below 6 months should not drink water. It's intoxicating for their small body. Even formula fed babies should not drink milk that is diluted, more water than the milk powder ratio. 

Back to LO's BLW. Hopefully she has more patience to eating and drinking by herself. I'm worried that I would give up soon. Peer pressure from family and friends T_T

"Why no feed her food?" 
"Why let her eat such hard food? Later choke how?" 
"She know how to eat meh?"
"Should start puree first"

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…
