May God grant me the wisdom to face the reality of life in a easy way that i will no longer feel the harsness of the so call loneliness.

check out for more monochrome weekend  here

                     cijin beach is well-known for seafoods and said to be one of the two decent beach in kaohsiung,if you want to visit this island  to try their varieties of seafoods(no chance for me to try though they look yummy!) or just wander around the island take some photos or might want to try surfing or swimming on its clean beach, first thing  you need to know is that you need to take a ride in a ferry boat where it is located at gushan ferry pier  or try the underwater harbor tunnel.



a leaf-design bench where i sitted for awhile  watching those people walking,chatting,couples hugging and kissing each other,those riding on a tribike,kids playing on the sand,others playing kites,those taking pictures,a few surfer on the beach,sellers selling different kinds of seafoods,oldies playing poker,a serenader couple  performing for free to entertain visitors like me,and one foreign girl(indonesian) already upset waiting for someone(she's been there for an hour as i observed huh!)whom i  asked to take one picture of me.(thanks to her,can't forget her because of the picture...)


                        im not lucky enough to find any beautiful flower, spent half day wandering in cijin beach and this is the only flower(or should i say grass?!) i  got/saw....not a good place  for planting flowers  i suspect because the place was actually  well-known for its  famous seafoods  and beach not flowers,LOL!

glimpse at wulai part 2

please visit my world tuesday and  watery wednesday  .....


my niece and i

its us again


my niece with the waterfalls and gondola at her back

i really love this place especially the fish


man-made waterfalls at my back from the top of the mountain

i was supposed to ride on that boat but i got no chance *sigh*






                last christmas 2007 when my brother was still here we decided to celebrate our christmas at wulai,together with our niece and a friend of us.Since christmas was not a feast to taiwan people(well,atleast some christians do celebrate)and nobody from the company want to celebrate,we just went out took the bus going to wulai.
                  as i mentioned on my earlier post its worth the time visiting this place because of its fantastic falls and breathtaking gondola a must ride for you to see the beauty of wulai,once you get there you can see alot of beautiful things that can make you close to nature and to the one who created it though some parts are man-made still you can't just ignore the views that are well-managed,what i really like most in wulai was the chance to ride on that gondola because i  was actually very very afraid of heights and its one in a million experience for me that i can never forget especially it happened at christmas time and i was with my family....allow me to share a photo taken by my niece and my brother(please forgive me that i need to post my face here,hehhehehe.....i just want to share some views!sorry!

Dance with my father again....

                       "who is to give light must endure burning"-victor frankl


















back when i was a  child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
 Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
 And I knew for sure I was love
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
 How i'd love, love, love
To dance with my father again
 When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me, yeah yeah
Then finally make me do just what my moma said
 Later that night when i want to sleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
 If i could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
 I'd play a song that would never ever end
    'Cause I'd love, love, love, love
To dance with my father again
  Back when I was a child
 Before life removed all the innocence
 My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
 And I knew for sure I was loved
If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I'd play a song that would never ever end
 How I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again
When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
 He'd make me laugh just to comfort me, yeah yeah..
Then finally make me do just what my moma said
Later that night when i want to sleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
 If i could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
 I'd play a song that would never ever end
  'Cause I'd love, love, love, love
 To dance with my father again
 Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
 And I'd hear how mama cried for him
 I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
I know I'm praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
 I know you don't do it usuall
But dear Lord she's dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream


for my dad(get well soon) and my uncle who just past away...may  he rest in peace!

Monochrome Weekend-Gas Plantation in Kaohsiung 1

i took the pictures while im riding a motorcycle.i just find the look-a-like-bridge connecting on the other side of the road so cool,beside that road....you can see a rail road going to taipei...at the end of that long look-a-like-bridge another huge gas plantation ....so i grabbed my digicam and took some photos....it might not be interesting to others but the fact that 99.9% of people living in this city depends on that plantation for the gas they produced.The first time i saw that look-a-like-bridge i was mesmerized,i may sound funny but that's me,every single thing that matters to me and to my eyes well definitely can captured  may attention,and maybe because everytime i passed by in that street and look-a-like-bridge as long as i can remember the smell that my nose can breathe in was really really bad,seems like i was in the middle of cow farm,hehehhehe...so sometimes i prefer not to used my fave perfume because i thought its just a waste if i whisk by  the plantation,lol......so,let me share some photos....and hope you will like it too....

a glimpse at wulai 1




Wulai (pronounced as ulay) is a rural townships in southern Taipei County in north Taiwan (ROC). It sits near the border with Taipei and is famous for its hot springs. The name of the town derives from the Atayal phrase kirofu ulai meaning "hot and poisonous".
i've been there two times but still want to come back  to see more of its beauty and to enjoy the nature(im a nature lover!!!)... it's a nice place to visit and worth the time hiking reaching the highest top of the mountain on the other side using its cable car or gondola  not to mention the thousand bucks you got to spend visiting the place...allow me to share some of my photos .(click the pictures to enlarge)
