Congrats, taiwantiger. I met and married my Taiwanese bride in the US before going back to Kaohsiung for a wedding banquet and pictures. We had a about 300 people at a wedding banquet and even though I knew only her immediately family, I enjoyed it. Guess I away easy without the "diaper fee." :-)

Hope everything goes smoothly!


Congratulations! I'm rather surprised how complicated this wedding sounds. Maybe they're doing that to you just because you're a foreigner. I'll have to ask my parents if they did any of that.

Wow! What a production! I didn't have to pay a diaper fee either -- her dad was delighted I was taking her off his hands. LOL. Lotsa good blogging material in that one!

Good luck! And if you need any advice....don't ask me!



I was checking online to get some information about the engagement party in Taiwan. Although i am a Taiwanese, i dont know exactly what we should do for it. However, i know the diaper fee should be paid by the male side. It's tradition. ^__^ Congratulations to you.

    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.
