Mickey and friends

Christmas is coming. School holidays has started. The malls in Singapore have started the holiday spirits with Christmas decoration and shows. The mummy groups had kindly shared loads of malls' shows in the group. Ok I'm the leech. Haha oh well, I'm still a new learning mum, there's still loads to learn. 

First up, Mickey and friends meet and greet at Takashimaya. Dressed up my baby in her new shoes that we bought last friday. Only to realise that 20 minutes into our journey to town, she had became a Cinderella. I swore I would had cried, if baby's not in my arms. I really love that pair of sneakers. ALOT. And she was dressed to matched the sneakers. So did I. T_T

Baby's left foot is only left with her bunny socks without her cute pink bunny ear sneaker. T_T

When we reached Takashimaya, the stage front was empty, but the queue for the meet and greet was already snaking. Ok, 5 groups of families in front of me. And we were 30minutes early. Soon the queue got longer. 

Finally we were ushered in. And there were some question games for the older children. Then, Donald, Mickey and Minnie came dancing out. 

Baby was engrossed in their singing and dancing. Initially she wouldn't sit still and kept crawling away (for the question game part). But she was fixated at them, pointing and eh-ing at them throughout. Happy baby = happy mammy. 

One song later and it's time for photos! Baby was overwhelmed. She don't know who to look at... She turned left and right to look at the characters and not once at the camera. Haha...

After the photo taking, I went and bought her a new pair of shoes. Frozen sandals from the fair. It's just a sort of a redemption for my aching heart. Sighs. Not as nice as the bunny sneakers though. 

Lesson learnt. CHECK the shoes eveytime. Sighs...

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…
