What a nice three-day week-end to transition from February to March, so I hope everyone is having a swell time. This also means that it’s time for a wrap-up of last month, so let see.
– About 228: if you have no clue why this past Friday was a holiday, read up on the 228 incident or the first-hand account of George Kerr, author of Formosa Betrayed, on that day. If you are still wrapping your ahead around the history of Taiwan, just like me, then this is definitely an event to learn more about.
– iCook Cooking Diary 愛料理日記料理: the Taiwanese go-to recipe website has launched a new mobile application on Android and iOS, for users to keep a visual diary of their home-cooked culinary creation. I’ve started using it to casually record some dishes of mine and get some Chinese practice along, which is all pretty fun. Having a glimpse at what goes on in other people’s kitchen is also a great source of inspiration, and motivation to cook more. Feel free to add me if you’re also using the application .
– Coffee, Google Maps, Taipei: I love coffee and I love Google Maps! Taipei is lucky to have such an extensive blog coverage of its coffee scene and bloggers kind enough to share their Google Maps, so, big shout out to: Kevin’s Superhero Listing (chinese), Allister’s Taipei Cafes (english), and Eric’s taiwan.loves.coffee (english).
Some blog post updated:
- Oh no! Banh Mi Sai Gon 西貢麵包 has moved north of the train station.
- Caffé Bene is pursuing its invasion of Kaohsiung with 2 new additional stores.
- An new addition to the Map of Night Markets in Kaohsiung, with the Behind Train Station night market, yet another nocturnal place to go scavenge for food.
That’ll be it for February. I have a bunch of drafts waiting to be published, so stay tuned!
