Israelis in Taiwan : Shani Weinstein writes about Taiwanese culture on YNet

A few weeks ago I mentioned an interview given by an Israeli – Shani Weinstein – for Reshet Bet. Seem like Shani’s pretty active in sharing her Taiwan experience with Israelis as I keep getting email references to things she writes about her life in Taiwan. The latest is an article in the online version […]

Hsu Yung Chin (徐永進) is a well-known Taiwanese calligrapher who’s doing some very interesting modern “20th-21st century” calligraphy. Every once in a while I visit the NCKU student activity center which is a run-down building that was given to the university student clubs to do with it just about what ever it is they …

Oh, how I longed for a show in English. It’s been a while since I saw a show, any show, maybe almost a year. When a group of shy Taiwanese approached me with a card about a play in English called “Heart’s Desire” that was going to take place in NCKU, I was thrilled. …

The confusing truth : Environment and Pollution in Taiwan and East-Asia

What do you know about the environment in Taiwan? What do you really know about the environment elsewhere, maybe back in your home country? How good or bad are things here in Taiwan? Since arriving in Taiwan I’ve become alot more environmental aware. This has a lot to do with the type of conversations …

I went there twice before to help them out with their request to learn how to sing some songs in Hebrew. Arriving there I met a large group of volunteering students from the nearby university who were …

Asian Pop Culture - Japanese Cosplay - NCKU Tainan Taiwan-8.JPG

I love this stuff, I really do. This is one of the most magical things I’ve seen here lately. I was always so jealous of the northern folks for attending the NTU Cosplay event that I swore to myself that next event I’ll even head up to Taipei to see it. Luckily enough, I found […]

Two weeks ago I finally discovered the number one sales pitch for studying in Tainan-Taiwan. NCKU is among Taiwan’s top 3 schools and all that, but why would anyone come to study International Business here? The Tainan Science Park and the highly successful Taiwanese IT companies. It’s a mystery as to how small Taiwan …
