Spring Break in Chiayi and Alishan National Scenic Area

I have been so busy with graduate school...I very much needed this Spring break to get away! So I spent three days in Chiayi, the south of Taiwan. It was my first time there and seeing one of the most well-known national parks in Taiwan, Alishan National Scenic Area. Indeed, it was really relaxing and beautiful there! Click to see more pictures at my Gallery! :) 

泥漿溫泉 (nijiang wenquan) naturally occurring mud hot spring, only three in the entire world: Taiwan, Japan and Italy! 

Did you just find yourself a reason to visit TAIWAN??? :D

Celebrating Valentine's Day and Lantern Festival

情人節快樂!Qíngrénjié kuàilè! Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! ❤ In case you haven't watched this video yet, learn how to wish a happy Valentine's day to your lover! 

For Westerners, today is Valentine's day. However, for the Chinese, today is also Lantern Festival (元宵節 Yuánxiāojié) on the lunar calendear. It is the last day of the Spring Festival (春節 Chūnjié), that is the Lunar New Year. On this day, people eat yuánxiāo - boiled glutinous balls with sweet stuffing or meat inside. Yuánxiāo is also known as 湯圓 tāngyuán, which literally means "soup round". It sounds similar to the word "團圓 tuányuán - reunion" in Chinese. It is a day where family members get together and have tāngyuán. Furthermore, it is the season of lantern carnivals! :)

*Chinese Vocabulary
