0ne might think what life p0ssibly d0 I have here?well,let me tell y0u- close y0ur eyes and feel the m0rning breeze 0n a c0ld winter m0rning,while y0u are walking on a place safer to have a walk even in the middle of the night.
A place where y0u can find pe0ple enj0ying the nature created by G0d each m0rning and bef0re end of the day,couples having their chit chat while sitting on a bench,y0ung 0ne's playing basketball on the court,middle-age pers0ns having their everyday r0utine of exercise(they called it "int0ng-int0ng"),and s0me pe0ple d0ing their y0ga!

I enj0yed watching these pe0ple as I enj0yed much feeling the nature,being a nature lover I can't help myself w0ndering what if all this beatiful things came t0 end?where there still a place f0r me to enj0y my stay here?
I may still stay because of my j0b but definetely n0t enj0ying everything .
This place and pe0ple keeps me g0ing everyday seeing them s0 lively makes myself c0mf0rtable thinking that "life is beatiful" and "each m0rning there's always a reas0n f0r us to smile,to love,to give,to care and to enj0y the rest of the day" th0u s0me of us are away fr0m our own h0me......      


here are some of the flowers you can find in this park,at this season you can't see much but on month of february-may  all the flowers are blooming especially orchids,different kinds of orchids and different colors...each tree has one orchids hanging on it,a hundreds perhaps if im not mistaken...

lotus pond in kaohsiung

let me share with y0u a bit history and s0me ph0tos we took last may at the lotus p0nd here in kaohsiung taiwan.s0rry for th0se ugly faces hahaha,i just d0n't want to edit anything anym0re c0z im pretty busy to do that.oh! by the way,we went there with papu(my niece cousin)he really enjoyed the place,and the ice cream we bought for him... So there y0u go!enjoy!

Lotus Pond, named after the aquatic plants growing in it, is located in eastern Zuoying District.One of the more famous temples is the Confucius Temple to the west of the lake, the biggest of its kind on Taiwan.Architecturally similar to examples from the Song Dynasty, the temple features an arched bridge and an embossed bronze wall profiling Confucius.Other prominent landmarks around Lotus Lake are the Dragon Tiger Towers with their relief carvings illustrating twenty-four stories of filial piety, twelve men of virtue, and the thirty-six generals of the Emperor of Heaven.The ancient Zuoying North Gate is also nearby.As the first gate built with earth and stone in Kaohsiung, it is historically significant and worth visiting.

Papaya flower




Taiwan's Delicious Papaya Fruit IThe papaya is native to tropical nations. In the seventeenth century it travelled from the West Indies to Asia where at the end of the Ch'ing dynasty it was introduced to Taiwan.

In Taiwan, the papaya is propagated by a method designed to reduce damage from viruses or insects. Currently the most popular variety of papaya on the market is the mindnight persimmon papaya with deep red flesh, sweet, juicy taste that is just deliciou. With production year round, and the largest portion of the harvest coming between July and November, with the highest consumption between August and October when the sugar levels can reach 11 to 13%. Mostly grown in Tainan County, Pingtung County and Kaohsiung County.

Papaya Fruit and Your Health
Taiwan's papaya production yields high quality, sweet fruits, with superb nutritional content that can serve as an excellent part of high nutritional diet to maintain good health. Papaya contains special enzymes such as papain which can aid in digestion and the breaking down of complex proteins, and provide natural assistance to digestive tract disorders and upset stomachs, while having the same texture as tender meats.
The papaya also has an excellent variety of nutrients including Vitamins A, C, and E, as well as calcium, phosphate and iron, with relatively few calories and excellent quality. Papayas are exported mainly to the USA and Asia.

Cooking with Red and Green Papayas
Papaya can be eaten fresh, or enjoyed as fresh squeezed juice (or in smoothies such as papaya milk smoothies), dried papaya, or used as a vegetable in soups. In Taiwan, women enjoy the consumption of green papaya with pork spareribs soup. Papaya as a supplement can help ensure the proper distribution of fatty cells throughout the body where it is most desirable, and is thus a very popular soup ingredient for the beauty conscious modern woman.


After cleansing, cut the papaya in half, then remove the black pearl seeds and cut off the outer skin, then cut the fruit's flesh into equal cubes, and eat fresh or add milk and blend into fresh papaya milk smoothies that's out of this world extraordinary, or take green papaya and clean it then add fish or pork spareribs and boil in a soup to create a superb dish.

Year round from January to December, with most production coming from July to November.

Tainan County, Kaohsiung County, and Pingtung County as the main centers of production
