28th SEA Games

The 28th SEA Games is held in Singapore. Watched many exciting events on the TV and online. Singapore did really well this game. Lots of Gold medals. Really proud of them.

To join in the fun, we bought tickets to yesterday's basketball match. It cost $10, but 20% off for DBS card holders. And $1 for booking fee for each ticket (like really?). So it's $9 per ticket.

We intended to reach earlier to check out the Sea Games Carnival. But baby went for her nap a little later than expected, hence we got delayed. The place was flooded with people, fun, music and excitement. Love the atmosphere. We did not play any games as the queues were ridiculously long plus we had the little one.

So many Nila plush.. We were looking around for one. The hubbs wanna get one for the baby. He thinks she likes Nila. Haha...

The match starts at 6pm. We went for early dinner at Issho Izakaya located at Kallang Wave. It's one of the least crowded restaurants there. But it got crowded when we were leaving. Excellent service, but I was alittle disappointed with my order. The rice was a soggy for my Katsu Don. That's the only minus point.

We were on the wrong side of the mall and we rushed all the way to the OCBC Arena for the match. We missed a little. It's the Mens Basketball match between Timor-Leste and Malaysia. Great game, but missing the hype from the audience.

The hubbs bought a Nila plush toy for baby because he feels like baby likes Nila. LOL. As expected, baby was interested in it only for a few minutes before it landed on the floor.

We intended to skip the 2nd match, Womens match between Singapore and Malaysia as it was bedtime for our little one. However, we stayed on to watch the first quarter. Worth the wait. The first quarter was intense and exciting. Everyone in the hall cheered. The atmosphere was very high.

Left the match at the end of first quarter. Baby wanna go home...

Had a fun filled day today. Great time spent with my darlings.

Another 3 days to the end of the SEA games.

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…
