Hello Taiwan Tiger,

I've not commented before on your blog but just thought I'd check in and say hello. I've been checking in often after finding your blog while I was actually in Kaoshiung on vacation, my wife's hometown. We're back there about every year or so. I've made 5 trips and even worked in a couple of trips to Taipei for work in the past year. We recently returned from a trip to Beijing and Xian.

I'm a big fan of Patrick O'Brian and a member of The Gunroom of HMS Surprise(http://hmssurprise.org/), a very active listserv for anyone interested in anything nautical or just about anything in general.



Thanks for stopping by and checking things out. I am a little busy now, so I haven't posted a message in a while!


Just ran across your blog, while looking for blogs in China.

For the Poe story, you should try to find a copy of this http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Tales-Poems-Vintage-Allan/dp/0394716787/sr=1-3/qid=1160999591/ref=sr_1_3/002-2157384-6640015?ie=UTF8&s=books
It's fairly cheap and it covers most everything he wrote aside from his journalism/criticism.

BTW, nice site. I'll probably find my way back here again.


The best bargain for English language books here can be found at Caves and other bookstores that carry the Penguin Popular Classics series. All of them, regardless of how many hundereds of pages, are NT$80. Unfortunately, my Poe's "Selected Tales" doesn't contain that story!

  • Anti-Secession Law
    This blog stands against the fictitious law passed in March 2005 by the P.R.C. proposing that unification is Taiwan's legal and moral duty, even to the point of the P.R.C. using force to uphold that fiction. TaiwanTiger ascribes to the statement of Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council that:

    "The Republic of China is an independent and sovereign nation and its sovereignty rests in the hands of the twenty-three million Taiwanese people. Only the twenty-three million Taiwanese people have the right to make the final decision on any change to the nation's status and future."

Taiwanese Food

  • Ai Yu 愛玉 3
    So, this seems kind of crazy, but hey we all love to eat, right? In Taiwan, it's considered a hobby. When you go on a trip, you need to stop at such and such town for their great ______. Noodles, shrimp rolls, chicken thighs, soup, whatever. Everyplace seems famous for some addition to the Taiwanese culinary tradition. So here I am attempting to document some of the traditions of eating, the places to go, and the food itself. This will be a difficult and slow moving project, because I feel really strange photographing food in the presence of other diners, especially when I have to stand on a chair to get it all in.
