Mon, 17 Sep 2007 20:11:36 PDTwhat's in this video: news articles about jackasses in China, and things you can only see in the Taiwanese countryside- like tiny crabs on beaches and hot girls singing Taiwanese-dialect songs from the backs of trucks.
Mon, 17 Sep 2007 20:10:48 PDTtoday's video is all about productivity. The best notebooks for storyboarding your ideas and designs are not expensive Moleskine notebooks, but cheap-ass math notebooks from Taiwan. Watch this short short video to know why.

Knowledge (Y! Taiwan's equivalent of Yahoo! Answers)and other websites for negative mentions of his chool. he'll then summon teachers to hunt for which student posted those offending (to him) items to punish (lower grades, etc).2. teachers at that school have to eat at the same table in the cafeteria with students during lunch time. they're also not allowed to bring their own food from home or buy from outside.3. sunburned badly for the love of art-- photographing sand crabs at the beach. 4. notebooks with funny Engrish blurbs on the cover-- more photos 5. Masons inviting people to tour their lodges to drum up publicity-- NYTimes article link (since this is an archive article, you'll have to pay to read the article in full. luckily, the NY Masons reproduced this article here ← click to read.)6. taiwanese split over identity as "chinese" or "taiwanese". big news a few weeks ago when people discovered that many major government offices changed all instances of "china" or "chinese" in their english names to "taiwan" or other words (like "Overseas Chinese Affairs Council renamed to overseas Compatriot Affairs Council) original chinese names were retained, though. other news links for this topic in Chinese:慶雙十僑委會去中國化 華僑深感被棄-Yahoo!奇摩新聞 and 機關英文名 悄悄改「Taiwan」OCAC renamed Overseas Compatriot Affairs Council2006/10/9The China Post staffFew may have noticed this, but the Overseas Chinese Affairs Council (OCAC), Taiwan's highest authority serving citizens living abroad, has been renamed as the Overseas Compatriot Affairs Council.While officials with the council said the name change was meant to make a clearer distinction between Chinese and Taiwanese, opponents said the move was yet another indication that the government wants to "de-sinicize," or get rid of all words of phrases associated with China.........This time the council only changed its English name -- its Chinese name remains the same. The move was criticized as a way to bypass review of the Legislature."What we want to do is to achieve the biggest denominator for all overseas Taiwanese compatriots," said Cheng Tung-hsing, OCAC vice chairman and spokesperson. "There are Taiwanese independence groups who simply can't stand the word Chinese, and there are others who can't accept the name Overseas Taiwanese Affairs Council."In fact, the government has already changed the English names of various overseas offices as part of its de-sinicization campaign. What used to be the Chinese Cultural Center in places throughout the United States are now the Cultural Center of TECO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Office).Here in Taiwan, the government has also changed names of agencies in which it has a stake, without telling the public about it.Chinese Television System, for example, is now part of the Taiwan Broadcasting System group."The Legislature didn't even know about the name change," said Kuomintang lawmaker Hung Hsiu-chu, member of the Legislature's Education Committee. "We'll ask for a clear explanation from these people when we review their budget next time." [...]

(my 30 second Flicks ad) (i'm not complaining, but just want to point out that it says size 'S' though it makes me look like i'm trying out for a nerdcore hiphop group if i wear this. in other words, it's too big and baggy for a size S. perhaps it's a factory printing error, or it's men-sized.)2. The Motion Sick t-shirt (and other great stuff)-- super belated thank you since i haven't had time to update. 3. Moon Festival (15th day of 8th month of the lunar calendar, happened to be Oct. 6 this year)-- it's all about burning meat I happened to be in the area to buy bbq supplies for our class's own Moon Festival cook-out when .. (read no.4) ← stuff bought from Carre Four (btw, no one dared drink the Vanilla Coke i chose in the class's moon festival bbq party. they also said that it's scary, blah blah. vanilla coke is really delicious! i can't believe people don't want to try vanilla coke.)4. red-shirted protesters reach Tainan County-- I was able to shoot some photos of cops rerouting traffic and barricading roads in full riot gear but none of the protesters themselves.

Sun, 10 Sep 2006 21:19:22 PDTthe food down here in the dirty South (i'm talking about Tainan County, kids) is good and all, but there's nothing exceptional. there's plenty to eat, but the choices are extremely limited.
