New post: Example of Taiwanese media writing about #ㄈㄈ尺‬ ‬
I'm really tired of the topic of ㄈㄈ尺 in Taiwan, but I keep coming across something that bothers me almost daily now, and then I believe I have to share it or write about it, because I observed that the awareness of this issue isn't very present in the foreign community in Taiwan and abroad.

New post: Construction of Nanshan Plaza, #Taipei's second tallest building
The Nanshan Plaza is a 272m tall skyscraper currently under construction in Taipei's Xinyi District, right next to Taipei 101, Taiwan's tallest building and arguably no 1 landmark.

New post: Surviving #typhoon   #Soudelor  in #Taipei   #Taiwan  
And this was nothing compared to late afternoon, when the rain and the wind got even stronger, it felt like armageddon. I was constantly checking my window.

Came across your blog while visiting Taichung after a 17 year absence.  Reading about the racism issues here brought back quite a few memories.  I was living in Taiwan from 1991 to 1998 (half of those years in Taichung).  Got married in 1996 and then returned to Montreal with Taiwanese spouse ... the main reason being I'd much rather raise our kids in a multicultural environment like Montreal than here despite the financial rewards (I was working in the import/export business while here).  Absolutely no regrets about our decision.

It's been 6 years since I wrote this post. I think this park is pretty timeless, and one of my favorites in all of Taipei, despite being named after a sad chapter of Taiwanese history.

Disturbing depiction of a black man in a Taiwanese promo video

#Taiwan 
What rubbed me the wrong way immediately is the depiction of the black man in this video. First of all, why? Why was this necessary to do? What is supposed to be funny about this?

New post: My summary of the tragic death of a young activist, and what it tells  us about #Taiwan's society.

The one who’s sick is this society. It’s the adults. It’s the parents who were brainwashed, like me. You were a little prince who always had pure thoughts. You completed your mission. You made public opinion boil over all right. You’ve made us brainwashed adults rethink things.

New blog post: Spare a thought for the Western men trapped in  #Taiwan‬. This is my commentary on the article in #Japan Times, that caused a lot of buzz among foreigners in Japan. How many parallels can be drawn here? I think quite a few.
