5 Days in Tainan, Taichung

Caotun Township, Nantou County, Taiwan

Doing road trip between Tainan (southern Taiwan) and Taichung (central Taiwan) in five days was quite a different way to experience Taiwan. Unlike Taipei—a cosmopolitan city, Tainan and Taichung offer a more down-to-earth (village like) look and feel. This series of images are visual journal of my attempts to connect with the place and people that I have encountered along the way.

Bridge Over A Walkway

Chiayi County, Taiwan

This small town in Chiayi county, Taiwan, has its point of attraction: it is a bridge over a dry-up river and a walkway by its side. There is nothing scenic about walking along a river that has no water, but the sight of a bridge over it (a river of rocks and wild plants) is something out of ordinary.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
- Isaiah 55:8-9(ESV)

Red and White

Lamma Island, Hong Kong

Continue on with our chase for colour, we hopped on a ferry from Central, Hong Kong to come to Lamma Island—a tiny island located to the southwest of Hong Kong Island. Here we came across this small village house with decorative artwork on the wall, which added an extra flair to a already peaceful and tranquil ambiance of this locale.

Yellow and White

Chiayi County, Taiwan

Following our chase for colour, we came to Chiayi — a county in southwestern Taiwan. Mostly townships and small villages, Chiayi gives a more down-to-earth look and feel—different from big cities like Taipei. We arrived at the almost end season of the yellow flower of Golden Trumpet tree(風鈴木). Though we missed the full blossom week, yet clusters of yellow flowers can still be found; waiting to be discovered and appreciated.

Alisan, Fog and Colour

Alisan, Taiwan

It must be at least a few hundred turns that we had to make along this long and winding road before arriving at Alisan (a.k.a Mount Ali). Fog and rain welcomed us as we made our way to our base (the guest house). Though it’s wet and foggy, Alisan’s beauty and mystery did not get diminished a bit; it simply got me lost in the dense fog and rich colour of cherry blossom.

Out of The Cold

City of Markham, Canada

Mattresses are set up and prepared in the common room of TCCC for another night of providing shelter for homeless people in this cold February day. May those who stay not only getting a warm night sleep but also receiving care and love that warm their heart.
