Kaohsiung: Onward and Upward
Cheng Nai-hua /photos courtesy of Jimmy Lin /tr. by Geoff Hegarty and Sophia Chen
Bordered by the sea, Kao­hsiung has experienced several major transformations in transport (the Mass Rapid Transit system) and urban space (the Love River and Kao­hsiung Harbor) over the past two decades, shedding its image as purely a center of heavy industry.
In recent years, the arts have become a new focal point for Kao­hsiung. With the annual Kao­hsiung Spring Arts Festival and fall Kao­hsiung Film Festival as major drawcards for the region, the harbor city’s former reputation as a cultural desert has become totally inappropriate.

Renowned for its liberal approach to education, National Hsin­chu Senior High School has produced no small number of leaders in business, politics, and the arts, counting among its alumni Nobel laureate Lee Yuan-tseh, National ­Tsing Hua University president Lih J. Chen, and poet ­Cheng Chou-yu.
The sophisticated and fresh approach to education taken by the school goes back to its seventh principal, Hsin ­Chih-ping (1912‡1985). As Hsin­chu Senior High’s longest-serving principal, Hsin is one of the most missed and most discussed figures among the school’s alumni.

The Taiwan Railway Administration’s Pu­yuma Express races along the East Rift Valley. We get off at Yuli in Hua­lien County, where we transfer to a bus that goes to the end of the asphalt road that is Taiwan Provincial Highway No. 30, where it meets the unpaved Wa­lami Trail.
This expanse of mountain forest, in the eastern part of Yu­shan National Park, was in days gone by an important living and hunting area for the Bu­nun indigenous people. During the Japanese era (1895‡1945), the area experienced an incident of fierce resistance against the Japanese by indigenous people. The trailhead is also the point from where for the last decade and more, “Black Bear Mama” ­Hwang Mei-hsiu has been going deep into the Da­fen oak forest to study the Formosan black bear. Countless scholars have studied the ecology and explored the history of this place, and the long trek to visit Yu­shan itself also starts from here.

There’s a pop classic in Taiwan called “Grandma’s ­Penghu Bay.” The lyrics speak of the gentle even­ing breezes that waft over ­Penghu Bay, the white-capped breakers and sundrenched beaches, and of course the sea of blue, so blue. The ­Penghu Islands (also known as the Pescadores) attract tens of thousands of tourists annually, especially during the Ocean Fireworks Festival, and most can’t help but start singing “Grandma’s ­Penghu Bay” to themselves.

Taiwan was once famous around the world as the “cichlid kingdom,” and in 1986 bred the “blood parrot cichlid,” which for a time was all the rage in the ornamental fish market. However, the global economic downturn in 2008 caused a serious setback to the industry. Nonetheless, ornamental fish and crustaceans are high-value-added products of sophisticated high-tech aquaculture that offer educational and therapeutic qualities and can fit in with modern “lifestyles of health and sustainability” (­LOHAS). According to figures from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, annual production of ornamental aquatic animals and associated products is worth US$15 billion, making this a star industry that draws international attention. In 2009 Taiwan’s Council of Agriculture incorporated it as a key industry for development in the “Quality Agri­culture Development Program,” thereby creating a new opportunity for the growth of the industry.

Think of the Chinese calendar’s 24 “solar terms” as a clock’s perpetually revolving hands, marking time throughout the year. Over the span of a thousand years, their regular motion has become part of Chinese culture’s genetic makeup. With this clock as a guide, we can explore the natural world, for it knows the movements of the sun, the direction of the wind, and the currents of the seas. And there are even stranger natural forces afoot that sync the rhythms of the blooming flowers, the emergence of the cicadas, and the nesting of birds with life’s pursuits. These forces become part and parcel of our daily lives and set the tempo for an individual’s footsteps.

Coming to the Heng­chun Peninsula at the southern tip of Taiwan, you find yourself at the tail end of the Central Mountain Range, where long, narrow plains are intermixed with hills and plateaus, and a skirt of coral divides the land from the surrounding waters of the Pacific Ocean, the Ba­shi Channel, and the Taiwan Strait. The powerful north­east monsoon that blows from September to March often creates hot, dry “föhn” winds on the lee side of the mountains. Here the diverse flora and fauna and the hardy and tenacious people have together carved out an existence, giving birth to a unique cultural landscape.

The Puzangalan Children’s Choir: Spreading Hope to the World

The Pu­zanga­lan Children’s Choir, which comes from the extreme south of Taiwan, has this to say on their Facebook fan page: “In the Pai­wan language, pu­zanga­lan means ‘hope.’ The Pu­zanga­lan Children’s Choir, composed of Pai­wan children, is a group of youngsters who love singing, are willing to work hard, and who want a different future. They hope to use song to bring good wishes and happiness to everyone, and to bring hope for their own future.” #taiwan
