Taiwan Strawberry Festival

The family and I went down to Miaoli at the start of the Strawberry Festival.  We found that most of the strawberry picking places weren’t really ready for customers, so after driving around and not finding one, we went to the cultural center where strawberry products were on sale.

More Camping in Taiwan

We went back to the first place we camped in Taiwan: Guoxing.  On this trip we were using our new tent and I got shots of the setup and features of the tent.  The brand name of the tent is Adisi and is a Taiwanese home grown brand.

A Day at Baishawan Beach

I can’t believe I’m so far behind in my blogging!  I’m going to try to catch up over the next few weeks.

In early fall, we went to the beach with our longtime blog reader/commentator Stefan, and his family.

A Day at Baishawan Beach

At Stefan’s suggestion, we went to Baishawan Beach, which is Pinyin for “white sand beach” in the Guanyin Mountain Scenic Area of Taiwan’s North Coast.  You can click on the photo and go to the Flickr page and view a larger size if you want to read the map.  Also, the photos are geotagged so you can see where they were taken.  This article is also geotagged so you can view the location on our Geotagged Articles Map.

Our Trip To Neiwan

We’ve been to Neiwan before, but this was Phoenix’s first trip there – in fact it was her first time on a train (sorry I’m so far behind in my blogging!)

Our Friday Night Gig

Our longtime friend, Peter Lo, is closing the Wild West.  We had some great times there, and many musical shows.  We want to personally thank Peter for his support of our music and events.  The Wild West will be missed!

In Memory Of….

In Memory of Chris Case

Our long time friend, Mr. Chris Case (shown on the left, above) lost his battle with leukemia this morning.  Chris hosted our blog since it’s inception in 2005 , and our commercial site since the beginning in 2003.  Chris was a longtime supporter of our blog, music and our commercial enterprises.  He will be missed very much.

I spoke with Chris on the phone a few days ago.  Typical of him, he played down his situation and told me that he was going to make it – he had the spirit to fight the disease that was trying to kill him.  Chris wasn’t the kind of man who would complain or whine about his situation; no he would just get on with life and look forward.  I must say that he certainly faced his adversary like a man.

Goodbye Chris.  Thanks for always being there for us.

Trying A New Format

I’ve removed all the stuff from the right sidebar, and moved it to the left side, so I can insert photos on a larger size.  Please let me know how you like the larger size photos.  If the right sidebar remains clear, I can keep all photos large, like this one below:

Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is my favorite car, and there is one in Hsinchu city that is sometimes parked near the Big City mall.  I took a few photos with my mobile phone.

The Taiwan Pavilion

Hui-chen and I took Phoenix in tow with us to the new Global Mall and what we have come to call, “the big ball.”  This big ball, made in Taiwan, is a round display that was all the rage way back when it went on display in Shanghai where it caused quite a stir.  No one had seen anything like it.  Now, years later, this round display is in a purpose-built building that is part of the Global Mall complex.

The Taiwan Pavilion

We began our visit with lunch on the second-floor food court.  Phoenix loves the camera and I couldn’t resist snapping some photos of her being cute.

Sky of Star Moon

The afternoon after we saw the pandas, we went to this place, which they have translated “Sky of star moon.”  Not exactly how I would have translated it, this place is for kids to enjoy some animals and a safe area in which to run around.
