The Butterfly Project brings Color to my Dull Life

I remember my first time stumble upon The Butterfly Project Community when I purchase first beauty box call bag of love. Then just try my luck to click join as community member and sign up for Himalaya event which is opening for registration on that time. So lucky when I got selected. Even came back from Hari Raya Holiday early to attend the event. I was so excited to attend my first beauty event as Caterpillars.  (don't la imagine me went to event wiggle wiggle like caterpillars!!!!)
Then I attended Butterfly Christmas Party. I was like me! me! select me to join the party with Tammy Miss President of The Butterfly Project. Thanks to her who are attentive and don't reject people like me and accept me to be part of her community.

I may not be that active attending event like other bloggers due to my day job but I slowly learn about this blogging industry. All my life before join The Butterfly Project is just work and study for many many years. No personal life at all. Don't even talk about being social with others. I am just a loner. I don't even have a hobby before I join Butterfly Project. Now, blogging is part of my life and this is the hobby that I can express myself well.
If you have been reading my blog, you will find that my style of writing is not a strict or formal one. I more towards expressing whatever comes to my mind and everything through my own words. Don't penalized me on my sucks grammar Reading blog is suppose to be entertaining rather than stressful reading. (my opinion je ni.). Sort of personal diary which I will browse from time to time to recall my prime time. Youth! Its going to fade soon....

Happy 4th Birthday The Butterfly Project! 

This is the 4th year and I wish this community grow larger and stay on, even until Miss President ,Tammy's hair turn silver. ngeeeeeee...don't strangle me reading this statement ,ya Tammy! Hope she didn't read this.  Aihhhh!!! too many butterflies...I am sure she will miss my blog. kekekeke

Gosh! can't imagine all the beauty blogger in Butterfly is actually a group of Hot Grandmamas and Grand Aunties . kakakakaka.. I think too far is it ?

When I got to know The Butterfly is organizing 4th Birthday party, I was like worried unable to join. I was travelling to Kaohsiung for many days at that time. Every now and then check the FB for registration opening. Then worried ...did I miss it out! Oh no...but can't ask anybody..afraid people think I am too much. Gedikkksss!!!! who is she? Why so keen? Never see her before? Not so active beauty blogger also. My own perception again.

The moment registration open , I was like yeayyy!!! registered! Now I can travel in peace and sleep tightly. WTH! The peacefulness not there yet for me. I feel nervous whether they will invite me. Everyday check email from Tammy. Is she going to include this 'kici meow'? WTH! 
What kind of life am I leading ? Aduhaii!!!!  But this is me in real.

After the invitation then I worried about what to wear. The theme color is pastel. I was like..WTH! when I open my wardrobe room. All Grim Reaper's dress code! All Black like the NZ football team and few of Navy Blue. Now got to buy new clothes.  At the end bought one blouse from East India. There you go... me donning with my first ever pastel color blouse in my life. WTH!

Despite my nervousness and anxiety, I manage to attend this beautiful and meaningful event and try my best to mingle. Which I still having problems....haihhhh...

When first walk into the party room...I was like..Whoa!!! so much effort and thoughts to put this thing together. Not to forget the attendance full of uncontrollable hot ladies!!!! WTH!

This board kind of not expected at all. Smart fella who came out with this idea.

Oh! the photo booth for today's event sponsored by G and G Studiobooth. I was skeptical when first saw this booth. I was contemplating to myself. Can I go pose in front of this camera? Introvert side of me is killing me! Then keep thinking...when else can I do this? I may not have this kind of chance after this. WTH! But afraid people laugh at me too. Lucky I manage to pull myself together. The next thing I know...was in the queue and then...have so much fun playing around the props and pose.

Then time to mingle with other bloggers, briefing by Dee Leonard. I know some of them like me say I know Lee Min Ho. WTH! 
Everybody is having so much fun. Love to see all this smiling faces. I feel good can bring my girl side of me out here and be part of this eventful birthday bash!

The briefing and introduction by all blogger also very funny.  I visited most of their blogs and finally get to know the real blog owner here.

Travel to Taiwan : Experience staying at Tea Plantation near Sizhuo, Alishan

I took bus down from Alishan Mountain to another small town call Sizhuo. Its about 45 minutes journey down and I stop right in front the Hi Life Convenient store. Then wait for 'Mingsu' aka B&B owner to fetch me up to his place. Sorry! no public transport to get to this place since it located inside a huge tea plantation. I reached a bit early which is at 1:00pm but my appointment with him is around 3:00pm. It was freaking cold. I waited inside the Hi Life until around 2:30pm. 

The journey towards this B&B is like taking a roller coaster and a ride inside car driven by Takumi Fujiwara. You know that  famous anime Initial D ? Or do you remember Jay Chou playing that character in Chinese movie? He deliver tofu with his Toyota Sprinter AE86.

The route here is up hill...down hill and up hill and all those sharp 180 degree corner. Worst than Genting or even Cameron Highlands. The view is all white in front due to mist. Basically, you can't even see a things. That B&B a young dude around late 20s drove his white CX5 one hand only with some boring face expression. Whoaaa!!! this is what you call practice to perfectto!

This is my first time staying in this type of B&B. Everything fascinated me. Love the cool breeze and fresh air here. My room view is huge bamboo jungle. The surrounding is huge tea plantation and vegetables farm. Whoa!!!!! Can't wait to explore tomorrow.

No nearby restaurant. But the 'Mingsu' owner drove me to nearest town and I can call him anytime if I want a ride back. My first night dinner was sesame sauce noodles with highland cabbage top with sweet soy sauce and wasabi sauce. It was raining heavily and I was hungry. I finished it all. In normal days....don't think I will finish off this. hehehe...but I love the cabbage though. Its sweet and fresh with zest of wasabi.

I then walk towards nearby convenient shop to stock up some snacks and light food.

I woke up early in the morning and was given a delicious vegetarian rice ball and warm tea milk. No photo because forgot to take.hahaha...

I then prepare myself to go for a simple exploration around the 'Mingsu' . I don't forgot to keep breathing this fresh air to my lung. Hopefully it heal off some of the lacking inside my body.

Nearly to lunch time, I request to be driven out to old town Fenqihu. Its about 30 minutes drive from place I stayed. Owner told me to go around 11:30am and he said just call him whenever time I feel like coming back. Asssaaaa!!!!

Fenqihu is a small village off the expressway and also a former maintenance station for the forest railway. Current forest railway from Chiayi reaches here. I am taking the train down tomorrow afternoon.

Visited the forest railway museum. Interesting museum. Don't miss this place.

I enjoy my lunch bento with highlands and wild vegetables. Then quench my thirst with Alishan famous Aiyu Jello drink. I enjoy Alishan famous coffee with some wasabi cracker and also fried wild mushroom for my tea time break. I was suppose to enjoy the view while drinking and snacking but the weather was too misty that day. Owner said it suppose to be beautiful but the only think in front of me that day.....was just....ALL WHITE!!!! isk isk isk.... mist was too thick.

Forgot to mentioned if you in Fenqihu, don't miss this Bento place. You can buy and enjoy it on your train ride. To be honest that train not that comfortable for you to enjoy your bento. I think its best to eat it in the restaurant itself.

Bought some crunchy small peaches and also famous rice cakes for my night snacks.

Then I got too greedy saw this fresh made egg rolls. Who can miss this???? I bought one packet of those to add to my night snacking . The stall owner keep insist me to buy one box. I was like NO! NO! NO!!!!! But deep in my heart ..I wanna buy ...I wanna buy...kekekeke... I don't think can have real dinner since I enjoy too many street food at Fenqihu. shy la...everytime to trouble the B&B owner drive me out. I am not that thick face..duhh!!!

I woke up early the next morning to enjoy another exploration around the mingsu. Seriously , I can stay here another week which the mingsu owner found that I am strange! kekekeke... I guess he has been there too long until feel fed up with the view and environment. He told me normally people only book for 1 night. Nobody booked for 2 nights before. 

I was like....?????

I can't get enough of this view and fresh air. As usual every where I went...I will end up planning to retire there. Last time was Jeju Island near South Korea than Matsumoto, Japan. My latest retirement craze is this tea plantation near Sizhuo, Alishan. I wish have a liberty to do that. The only thing I can think off now is to marry one of those rich tea plantation owner nearby. But...things about people in this place ..they get married very early and at my age now????? They probably thought I am qualify to be a grandmother instead of mother. Wife???? Dreams on!!!  Aihhhhhh...NO HOPE! Back to KL work my ass off also cannot achieve this impossible dream ! There is no limit to dream. I know my limit to reality though!

Did I mentioned Alishan Oolong tea is the highest grade and good quality ? If you visit to Alishan don't forget to bring back some of this good tea. I bought some back!!! Yeayyyy...

Travel to Taiwan : Chasing after the Sunrise and Hiking Trail at Alishan Mountain

The main reason I flew to Kaohsiung is to visit this enchanted Alishan Forest Recreation area. I read about its diverse ecologies, colorful indigenous cultures, forest railways and amazing scenery of sea clouds and magnificent sunrise view.

This forest located in Chiayi County up more than 2,000 meters above sea level. This place is famous during Cherry Blossom Festival.

How to get to Alishan from Qinjing ?

I board the bus down from Qinjing to Puli and then from there change another bus to HSR Taichung Station and then to HSR Chiayi Station.

I took the bus up from HSR Chiayi Station up to Alishan. There are few taxi driver waiting asking you to get in to their taxi. But I find it much cheaper to get there with bus eventhough I have to wait for 2 hours. I miss the the first bus by seconds.

Tips : Before you go advice to check on the bus schedule online. They keep changing the timing. If you go in group it is worth to rent one taxi up. I think the cost is around NT2,500 for one trip up for whole taxi. Bus will cost you around NT250++. Bus driver will stop near the entrance and you need to bring your passport and money down to pay for entrance fees. That cost you around NT150/-pax.

Many people took the forest train up but due timing is not permitted for me so I took the bus up and down with the train instead.


First night at Alishan ,I booked a room walking distance to Alishan Railway Station. I was planning to take the train around 4:00am to Zhushan Station for Sunrise view. I don't think I can stay up at that hotel for long. The place is totally not my style. The only place is warm in the whole area is the bed. That because they have electric blanket on it. Other places is super cold for me.

Then I spend my remaining night at this awesome tea plantation near Sizhuo.

Things to do at Alishan Mountain

1. Chasing after the Sunrise

I woke up as early as 3:00am to walk out to Alishan Train Station to join the early morning queue. I bought the ticket as soon as I reached Alishan the day before.Try to go early to get the seat on the train or you will end up squeezing like sardines with others standing all the way to Zhushan Station. Not a long journey but don't wanna to be standing at early morning with others.

Honestly , it is hard to see the sunrise from Alishan due to the heavy mist. I am not lucky that day so the only view I get is white mist. shy la that sun. Like other people that day, I board down the train back but this time I stop at Zhaoping Station to challenge myself to walk along the tracks with hope I still can see left over cherry blossom.

2. Enjoy the walking trail

I kind of enjoy the walking trail on top of Alishan. Its not a difficult trail at all just the steps really bothering me. Anyway, I went on my hike with my walking stick. Just make sure you go there in the morning to avoid the group tourist. It can be nuisance to walk around with their noise. I manage to enjoy my time alone in the woods and really love it so much.

I manage to snap photos with late bloomers cherry blossom. Awesome! I thought would never get a chance to see it at all. There were few trees waiting for me. WTH! Thank you!

It was raining half way trek. By the time I reached Sisters Pond,then when the rain stop the mist was like covering the whole view. Surprisingly it is difficult to even see a single animal or insects around in this wood. Not hoping to see one but feel a bit weird because I can't even see a squirrel or a bird.

Isn't this look like a boar ?

It was really tiring to hike all the way with cold weather. I was glad to finally find a stop.

I bought some steamed 'guguma' aka sweet potatoes and corn. The owner asked me to top up some wasabi powder onto the sweet potatoes. I tried... and it was...whoa!!! exploded!!! and I love it. I bought packet of salted wasabi powder back home. WTH!  Wasabi is very famous here. So does basil seeds. If you see top right photo, that's wasabi.

Then the owner offer me warm basil seeds honey drink  to quench my thirst. Bless you! Thank God..I met generous and kind people during my trip.

After a short break, I then decided to walk towards the sacred tree site. I manage to cross the bridge then walk few meters before the heavy rain came. Aihhhh!!!!

At this point my leg feel very sore and started to cramp. Not sure how far I can go on. Plus feeling overly tired due to woke up at 3:00am that morning. Then met this girl who can speak English and she told me the train station nearby Sacred Tree only open at 10:30am. She turn back because need to check out at 11:00am. Me too! Aihhhh...turn back is better than stubbornly continue the journey. Even the path getting slippery by now. Guess! this is the limit of my journey here. I then bought a mini van ticket at nearby temple and join the queue to go back to hotel. I need to pack my bag and then take bus down to Sizhuo which I will be spending 2 nights there.

Weather in Alishan

Prepare warm clothing. Look at me cover up like that still feel every part of my body is freezing cold. It will be chilly and damp weather on top of Alishan. Try to bring waterproof jackets and shoes.

Travel to Kaohsiung : Things to do at Qingjing Grassland

Qingjing is a great place for people who love fresh air , lush forests, flowers and beautiful starry nights. This place located far away from city area in the mountains and hillsides. Oh! if you love cows and sheep then this place is a best place to interact with this farm animals. The culture at Qinjing I could say quite unique since its a combination of Taiwanese Aboriginal and Kuomintang Army Veterans who relocated here after the Chinese Civil War with their family mainly from Yunnan Province.

The Weather at Qingjing

Through out the day, Misty and Fog over the mountain tops and the sun will appears to rise from sea of clouds at dawn. Best time to walk in the afternoon. The weather can be chilly. Dress warm.

How to go to Qingjing from Kaohsiung? 

* Take HSR train at Zuoying Station to Taichung Station

* From Taichung Station take bus direct to Qingjing (Please note bus will stop at Puli to take other passenger before continue the journey up to Qingjing)

* I took Nantou bus and bought the ticket at the counter. You can buy the day pass together with bus ticket which means it include the entrance ticket to some of famous attraction at Qingjing. I just bought the bus ticket since the hotel I reserved include the entrance ticket.

Total journey from Kaohsiung to Qingjing is around 5 hours. phewwwww!!!! Half day gone! But the journey is worth it since I can see many beautiful view along the way.

Things to do at Qingjing

1. Book yourself a night stay at one of those uphill guesthouse

Imagine waking up to the nice view the next morning and enjoy cup of hot coffee with some fresh home baked bread under the chill weather. I booked for 2 nights stay.

2. Carton King

Carton King is a famous chain store in Taiwan selling everything made from Carton. As you walk inside this place from Table to Chairs and even the interior design is made of Carton.

Nothing to shout out about the food there but the environment and view is worth to give it a try. Lucky me this place is just opposite the place I stay.

3. Small Swiss Garden

Located beside Carton King. Enjoy the nice flower view here. More flowers will bloom in June. But I still enjoy strolling around the beautiful garden after my lunch at Carton King.Just walk right to almost the end you will find nice Cafe for hot latte or some ice cream. The owner have a cheeky cat name 'Polly'.

In the evening, I take a walk at nearby Maple trail. Its not in season for color changing yet. But the place smells fresh and enjoy the walking so much.

The lavender is blooming soon.

Here you will find many ducks and pigeon walking around freely. You can try to mingle around with duck here too. You need to careful on duck shit here. Its everywhere! hehehe.

Since I received two entrance ticket , I visited this place again at night to enjoy the dancing fountain show. I brought some hot latte and sat there to enjoy the show.

4. Tea Plantation Trail

Even though the tea plantation here is not that big but it still worth to walk. This place is just behind the guesthouse. Lovely view.

5. Green Green Grasslands

I visited this place in the morning. I was waiting for the bus but then forgot to take the new entrance ticket from the guesthouse reception. Turn back to guesthouse and was told I still can use yesterday ticket. Ceh!!! never tell me that earlier. Tired walking in the morning. By that time I miss the bus. Suddenly feeling 'meh' early in the morning. Then one mini van stop ask if I wanna go up to Green Green Grasslands for NT50. I just took that minivan up with 3 other passenger who share the same destination as me. Its common here. My plan is to take public transport up the hill and later walk down using one of those walking trail.

Finally , reach to the top of Green Green Grasslands. I walked around with my walking stick. People were staring at me. Especially the old people. They look at me with such a pitiful expression. The younger one will avoid me. Haihhhh....face not that important now. Most important I can support my leg well. Don't care that. Focus! focus! Be mentally strong!

What will you see at Green Green Grasslands?

Sheep roaming around. Sheep poo dropping is everywhere. So Green Green Grassland is a place full of shit ? Haih!!! just pray I don't step on some of those. For those who love to pet the sheep you can do so. I don't. I am not a fan of this place but I love the surroundings view. I just walk and enjoy the view here. I tried my best to avoid the nuisance and loud Chinese tourist group possible. Then try some warm sheep milk and some ice cream while admiring the magnificent view before my eyes !

If you have time and walk faster than me you can catch horse show which I find it interesting. I manage to catch the ending part since I walked super slow. Old that lorrrr! From there I choose to walk towards the maple trail down to guesthouse I stayed. Quite a long walk though.  But the view and surrounding is worth the pain. WTH! Not many people going through this trail.

I was alone for quite sometime until met this one teenage boy wondering alone like me too. At first thought he was lost. I confidently struck a conversation with him. Ecehhhh... Luckily he speaks good American English. He is local came with his family but he skip the lunch and wanna enjoy this trail. Yes. This is his second time! the first timer still have guts to ask whether he is lost. Suddenly became so caring..huh ? I am too lonely. hahaha

Some late blooming cherry blossom still on the tree. Refreshing view.

I found some fresh apples for sale. I bought some and seriously this one is crispy and sweet. Totally fresh from the farm.

Other place you can visit is Old England which I don't. Apparently , you need to purchase their hi tea set to enter the place and take the photo. No energy to walk there. There are some museum and so on too.

I need to retire early today since tomorrow another long journey which I will be heading to Chiayi and then up to Alishan Mountain. 

Tips : It is possible to stay at Taichung and take the bus up to Qingjing for day trip. If you need to overnight at Qinjing it is doable for a night stay. There are many other nice attraction which I skip since my condition is not so good. I was throwing up and fever because of some not suitable food the night before isk isk isk.

Travel to Kaohsiung, Taiwan : 7 Things to do at Cijin Island

Cijin Island Kaohsiung is just a small Island and you can easily cover this Island in a day. It just within less 10 minutes Ferry ride from Kaohsiung Harbour. If you are driving this place is also can be reached by car. 

Cijin Island attractions :

* Tianhou Temple
* Cihou Lighthouse
* Cijin Seashore Park
* Windpower Park
* Museum

How to go to Cijin Island ?

* Take the Orange Line Metro and get off at Sizihwan (R01)
* Take Exit 1 and turn left and walk straight to the end.
* Then turn right and walk straight and you won't miss the Ferry Terminal sign. If I am not mistaken it call Gushan Ferry Pier.
* Just join the queue at the entrance with other people. I went there in the late morning so not many people yet. 
* I just tap ipass and get the entrance fee cheaper . Yeayyyy!!!! You still can pay cash though. But its a hassle since you need to put exact amount into the box. If you don't have exact change , there are someone who will change money at the barrier. For non Chinese speaking like me , its better to use card. It will be hard to communicate when we don't understand each other.

Please note that you will pass through row of shops at small alley while walking towards the Ferry Terminal. There are some vendors pitching for you to rent the electric bike or motorbike. Yes. You can rent and bring it into the ferry. I believe its cheaper than the one rent in Cijin Island itself. But I find it a bit troublesome to do that since you need to go another lane and squeeze with other bikers. Plus the ferry fees will be a bit higher then. You can still rent bike at Cijin Island itself. In general all this vendors are friendly. One of them even gave me the map for free. By the way it is a  Chinese map. WTH! But I still can identify it through the pictures though.

Things to do at Cijin Island, Kaohsiung Taiwan

1. Buy lots of Street Food Snacks

Unlike other people who rent a bike to round the Island , I took a stroll on the street food vendors stretch and buy some snacks for simple picnic by the beach. Just by some seafood skewers and fried small fish. Don't forget Koahsiung specialty, Aiyu Lemon drink and also honey aloe vera drink too.

Top left : Sort of seashell snacks. Not sure how to eat that. It look bizarre to me. There are many vendors selling that snacks.

Top right : Grilled squid. Soft and fresh to eat. I love this one.

Bottom left : Fried prawn. Didn't buy that since I just ate the grilled squid. I need to check on Cholesterol level.haih!

Bottom right : I bought the fried small fish. There are 2 types. White and Silver fish. I bought both. The silver one with eggs. I love white one. It more delicious and less fishy smells. (Gosh! I am eating a  fish and expect it less fishy smells.)

Top Left : Grilled clams and abalone.

Top Right : Crunchy and Tasteless baby squids. Thats the sauce for dipping.This make me wanna throw up. I guess overdosed of baby squids. 

Bottom Left : You are not going to miss this. Love this pop shrimp crackers. I bought it here NT100 for one pack.

Bottom Right : I remember eat this similar one in Jonker Walk ,Malacca for RM15 a piece. Here I paid for NT100 (which equivalent for RM15) for one big bowl. They steam it with soy sauce,  garlic, ginger and glass noodles for me. Eat Clams until my stomach wanna collapse here. WTH!

Top : Honey aloe vera. I know the taste of real aloe vera alone will be bitter and slimy but yet I bought this. isk isk isk...why? I thought the aloe vera in Kaohsiung is different species. Who knows? The bitterness and sliminess was not much different. Foolish woman! 

Bottom : Aiyu Jelly with lemon. That green and brown color look like Alien's egg is actually the Aiyu Jelly fruits. This is sort of vegetarian gelatin. Good for health and knee cartilage too. I need this!!!! I tasted Aiyu Jelly in many places in Kaohsiung but I still feel the Auntie at Bangsar Night Market make the best Aiyu Jelly. 

2.  Rent a bike

After you done with food for picnic shopping. Time for you to rent your transport to tour the Island. Why I said walk first then only rent a bike? If rent the bike its not easy to stop and shop. I rent the electric bike for NT400 for 3 hours.  Happily zooming away around Cijin with it while snacking on seafood fry I bought. 

Please note they require you to leave passport with them when rent a bike. Hell no! I am going to leave my passport anywhere . I gave up my hotel pass card to them.

3. Appreciate on the black sandy beaches along the way

Cijin has an intriguing industrial history and the only things in front of you along the way is just a black sandy beaches where you can't see anybody swimming around. Its not the beautiful beaches I have visited. Anyway Cijin beaches still make one addicted to just sit there staring at the horizon while munching away the snacks. 

Just beware...too many stray doggies on the beach. Lucky don't get chase by any of them.

4. Visit the Museum

I found this by accident. Note that the map in my hand is in Chinese. So not sure what the hell is this. I drop by because urgency to relieve my short bladder. kekekeke... 
Then pop inside. All description in Chinese. But from the photos and all..I do understand what a horrifying event happened long time ago. All this happen during the Japanese colonial. Horrifying and many people died on that ship. 

No appetite to eat after that Museum visit. My mind keep wondering and imagine the horror of the victim being starve to death in that ship. Wondering if I am one of those victim. How will I take such pain and sorrow? I think killing myself is the best solution at that situation. Don't think my mind is strong enough to receive such brutal treatment.

5. Take a walk through the Cijin Star Tunnel

Seriously, I was hoping for star inside that tunnel but it was dark and no stars. Aikkk??? I need somebody to knock my head so the star can appear? kekeke...crazy thinking again. 
Trust me just walk through that tunnel even no star appear and the view waiting in front of you is worth it. Gorgeous!

I then walked along the trail nearby and found nice wild trees , plant and also beautiful cactus flowers.

You can climb some high staircase to get to the top of sort of Fort and lighthouse. You can see nice view there. In fact can view the whole Cijin Island from there. I don't do that since forgot to bring along my walking stick with me which in Hotel nicely place in my luggage. Never thought they have such stair case up and down. 
Yeah! when you old woman means you are old. Nowadays travel abroad must bring walking stick along with me.

6. Take nice photos

There are many art kind of things along the way. Just use your imagination and start to snap away. I am not an avid photographer. All I know is just point and click. Don't really care about art. Most important beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Keep sweet memories in mind.

7. Seafood Dinner in Cijin Island

Well..if you still can feed yourself with seafood meal then no harm to order some nice seafood dinner at one of the restaurant here. I can't eat anymore. The fry fish I bought is a little too much acquire all space in my stomach. Gosh! 

Tips : If you don't mind to be among the huge crowd,  visit Cijin Island late afternoon and stay for early dinner here. This place are more happening during that time. I came here late morning and left around late afternoon to avoid crowd. Too many Chinese  and local tourist. Headache meet many people. I can't stand being among to many people.I will get sick!

I boarded the ferry back to Gushan Ferry Pier. Thinking about going back early to hotel before walk to night market nearby. Who knows.....I found more happening things even before I reach the Sizihwan Metro. 

Apparently, they are having sort of farmers market. I walked and sample some food and drinks. . This thick face just being nice and politely accept it. So full even by sampling free food. hahahaha...

I love the pineapples here in Kaosiung. The texture and the sweetness is totally different than the breed here. That fruit corn. Simply delicious to just eat raw. Bought back some pineapples juice and one whole peeled cut pineapples just because I read somewhere pineapples good for knee pain. Thought of buying more things but I can't carry too heavy things. (Its knee pain syndrome not the bratty Princess syndrome. Please understand )

I end up bought some vegetarian steamed bun and eat the pineapples bought earlier for dinner. Saving energy  for tomorrow. I need to wake early for long journey to Cinjing the next day.
