In the spirit of the lovely trend of "Shit girls say…" or "Shit people say…" I sat down for a few minutes to quickly write down some of the shit HK people have said to me over the duration of my stay here on more than one occasion. It's a very long list, but I […]

Clockenflap Music Festival 2011 : Hong Kong

Did I already mention Hong Kong’s Clockenflap Music Festival was brilliant? Yeah, time to show you a bit of what went on.     Aside from the lovely Helen Feng and Nova Heart, I saw a few music performances (though sadly only documented a couple), and spent long hours …

Jama Masjid Delhi.JPG

I had a few hours to kill before my dad’s arrival to the Delhi Paharganj hell-hole. Same bullshit with that main bazaar road every time I step outside. I pick up a rickshaw, an English speaking guy comes up quickly and shoots out all the English speaking countries he ever heard of, and when I […]

Panaji-3.JPG

I arrive at 4:30am at Panaji, totally exhausted from a night-bus ride from Pune, and it was completely dark around us. Not a single building light in view. Going down from the local bus, all the Rickshaw folks quickly headed my way. “We take you best best beach, only 500 rupee” they start …

The confusing Taiwanese winter : freezing at 30c

Last week was full of typical Taiwanese winter days averaging around 28-30c with clear blue skies and refreshing sea-wind. I was just cruising around on the scooter, getting things done and enjoying Taiwanese winter, as I realize something strange. So maybe to share that feeling with you, here’s a quick snapshot of what’s around me […]

18 Jan, 2008 in Asia-Israel connections, Taiwan

It’s great seeing other Israelis doing well in Taiwan. Warms my heart. The other night, as I was meeting someone at Tainan’s “Hangout”, I picked the newest issue of +886, the Taipei based life style magazine in both Chinese and English, and noticed something familiar on the cover. I stared at it for a few […]

11 Jan, 2008 in Chinese culture, Tainan

It makes sense that the oldest tea shop in Taiwan would be in Tainan – the oldest city in Taiwan. A Chinese exchange student friend took me to a place I would otherwise probably never know about – a 5 (or was it 6) generations running family tea-shop in Tainan. Welcoming us in his pajamas […]

4 Dec, 2007 in Chinese culture, Tainan

The Tainan God temple celebrations just get crazier every week. Just when I think I’ve seen everything, Tainan hosts another unbelievable temple party for some other God or temple and I get to see some more. This one started 2 in the morning. I know, because I woke up to what sounded like a huge […]
