Hoya Resort Kaohsiung Review - Kaohsiung Kids Friendly Accommodation

For the first two nights of our stay in Kaohsiung, we stayed in Hoya Resort Kaohsiung due to its proximity to the airport.
Since we will be here for only two nights, we decided to pick an accommodation which is kids-friendly, read includes slide and bathtub, and accessible for us to explore the South part of Kaohsiung without wasting too much time on travelling.

Hoya Resort Kaohsiung fits the bill entirely! Additional bonus: a bustling night market just below the hotel! We had dinner there twice in a row.

Hoya Resort Kaohsiung is definitely a hotel created for families. They have kids play area downstairs and tamiya car racing activities at selected timing.
Kids-sized bedroom slippers were also provided in the Hoya Fun Suit we were in.

The only downside is that you can't select the type of room you wanted, we initially wanted the pirate themed room which is the most popular room at Hoya Resort Kaohsiung but it was occupied by another guest here for a weekend stay.

Luckily, the Animals room with a bunk bed was assigned to us, say yeah to plenty of bed space! This room comfortably sleeps up to 6. The bunk bed is at least a queen size and above.

Pricing wise was reasonable for the no. of pax it can accommodate but not cheap by Kaohsiung standards. One night for the weekend rate cost about $270 per night inclusive of breakfast.

Check out the large beds..

The room is HUGE and I mean really really huge. There's a king-sized bed in the room near where the bunk bed is. Each of the adults had the luxury of sleeping on one bed each for the past two nights.
There's also a study table, sofa and coffee table at the other corner of the room which I conveniently forgot to take a photo of.

In fact, not just the room is huge, the bathroom is humongous as well. the bathroom alone is bigger than our BTO bedrooms like serious!

See how kids friendly Hoya Resort Kaohsiung is - they provide kids toiletries in the bathroom as well

That's for the adults

How thoughtful, a lower sink for children. Makes access to the basin such a breeze.
Do this gives you a vague idea of how huge the bathroom really is?

Cute mosaic design just by the bath tub. As usual, kids shampoo and shower gel were provided as well.

Right on the other end of the bathroom sites the king throne and standing shower. Due to the size of the bathroom, one literally need to run from one end of the bathroom to the other end for a good soak in the tub after a shower.

A pano shot, yes definitely bigger than the bedrooms from a BTO flat.

Peek-a-boo a hiding place for the little one. the room is just like a massive playground for her

Alrightey enough of the room, let's take a look at the other facilities at Hoya Resort Kaohsiung

Free flow of snacks and coffee at the snack bar

This is where the kids play area is

A good place to dump the kids while you're busy settling your check-in

It sure get pretty crowded on weekend mornings at the Tamiya Car racing area

Sticky Bean finally get her hands on it!

Some other display, there supposedly was some demonstration, I figured it must be something similar to having the trains move around the racks like LEGO Land.

Review of Hoya Resort Kaohsiung
5/5 !
  1. Proximity to the exciting, a large Youth Night Market (literally just downstairs)
  2. Walking distance to LRT (5 minutes walk)
  3. Huge kids friendly room
  4. Kids activities and play area availability
  5. Decent breakfast spread
I will highly recommend Hoya Resort Kaohsiung to everyone especially if you're staying for just 2-3 nights.

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you. There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement. But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still. And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks. But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh... And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group. So naturally, i fall into this group as well. According
