Little Diner

Hubby initiated a Saturdate for today. He went searching for a nice place for us to have lunch. His initial choice was met with some hiccups, and found an even better choice, and made a reservation days before. 

So! Our big date (today is our 154 by the way) was at Little Diner, located at 789 Bukit Timah Road. Parking was a little difficult outside the restaurant. Many parked huge cars, and squeezy lots space. We parked at Guthrie House, about 5 minutes walking. 

Preview of our lunch. Yum yum. 

Little Dinner looks like a space restricted place from the outside. Inside, it's still small, but not as small as what I imagined. Cozy place, friendly people. Lovely. 

On every reserved table, there's a tiny handwritten note with the name of the person the table is reserved to, time and number of people. Lovely gesture. When we were seated, we were served almost immediately with water. Even baby gets her cup of water in a plastic cup and and shorter (than the adults') straw. 

Little Diner's promotions are listed at a glance on the wall. 

Ok.. The dog's portrait is cute. Our Latte at this point of time, is having his grooming session, being served like a king. 

My order: Omelette of the Day (Smoked Salmon) ... S$15.50
Served with Thick Brioche Toast & Mix Greens.

Lol. The description said to have toast? But my order doesn't come with toast. Made me feel not totally satisfied (in terms of full). However, the omelette is very thick, and it wrapped a very thick layer of smoked salmon. Delicious. Though a little too salty. But worth the value. 

Hubby's order: The Italian Benedict ... S$19.50
Parma Ham Slices, Roasted Red Bell Peppers, Sautéed Mushrooms, Poached Eggs & Hollandaise Sauce on Toasted Brioche. Side of Baby Green Salad.

Oh I love his. Delicious poached eggs with hallamdaise sauce. When eggs are nicely done, it's a winner. Did I ever mention I love eating eggs?

Our coffees. Hubby's Mocha S$5.50 and my small cup of Cappuccino S$4.80 (there are two sizes to choose for Cappuccino). Delicious coffee. Little Diner serve coffee from Toby's Estate. What more need I say?

Overall, love the food, love the people. Baby friendly too, with high chairs and child cutlery. We'll be back to try the other food that we saw served to other tables (greedy us lol).

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…
