Apr holiday break – school days

I was strolling along the streets of Taichung one afternoon when the sound of laughter from a school field caught my attention. The scene reminded me of my old school day, and it put a smile on my face. We had a field like that too. But we did not take our physical education lessons seriously and sent our teacher into a rage once too often.

We were rebellious, but those were the days of adolescence and our lives laid ahead of us.

TAICHUNG| Rainbow Village 彩虹卷村 – Part 1

The Rainbow Village (彩虹卷村) was built in the 1940s -1950s to house soldiers and their families. As time went by, it slowly became a permanent dwelling for its settlers. One of the veterans there, 87-year-old Huang Yung Fu, turned the village into a giant piece of artwork in recent years by covering the walls and ground with his drawings. This has, in a way, prevented the demolition of the village and it is now preserved as a unique cultural asset.

I’ve been wanting to check out the Rainbow Village ever since I learnt about it some time back. The perfect opportunity presented itself when I made a trip to Taichung last Sep. Although the village was smaller than I’d expected, it was still quite a sight. I even managed to catch a wedding shoot in action!

[Taichung] For Farm Burger 田乐

I will be heading to Sydney in 24 hours (whee!), and have scheduled a couple of short posts to reduce my backlog, starting tonight. In the meanwhile, here is a post on a burger joint I visited in Taichung.

For Farm Burger is an eatery which promises to serve up burgers prepared only with naturally-grown ingredients. Its premises have been converted from an old Taiwanese house, and it retains quite a fair bit of old charm through the use of vintage furniture. It was dark when I arrived, and it was very fortunate that I managed these photos before the light was completely gone.
