Well, I’m currently surfing on a Murphy’s Law wave of some sort, so I’ll make this one short, and avoid delaying this monthly post more than it is already. 😖
I’ve written quite a few posts since starting this blog, so I did a little curation to unearth some of the more interesting articles, as can be seen on the right column. I’m still fixing broken links here and there, because how annoying is it to click and land on an page that is no more‽ As much I can, I try to avoid this deception, but really, what is really needed is a complete facelift for this blog, in a near near future, I hope!
If I didn’t blog much in April, I’m at least happy to have finally published the book review of 《我的青春、我的FORMOSA》, and even mustered the energy to write a French version of the post, oh la la! If you’re studying Chinese – or are already a Chinese literate – and looking for a friendly introduction to the recent history of Taiwan, I highly recommend it.
Looking up information, writing and translating used up more blogging bandwidth than expected, and so partly explains the slower activity around here, as of late. Continue reading April 2015 – 亡羊補牢→
For this last Taiwanvore Digest edition of the year, I thought I’d share some Taiwan-centric blogs I’ve enjoyed reading, a list to be tacked onto Taiwan Explorer’s 10 well designed Taiwan blogs (who kindly included me in it, haha). The list is non-exhaustive, but I have a blogroll in the works where I’ll share more of my favorite blogs. And as usual, I’ve done a recap of tweets that’ll speak for themselves.
This is quite embarrassing, posting this more than a week into December, so much that I’m not publicizing it on my twitter, haha, hoping it goes unnoticed 😬. If I haven’t been the most punctual with those monthly digests, I still mean to keep up the series until the end of the year, and will review later how to do those monthly roundups… we shall see.
October has come and gone, and could have done without yet another food scandal. On the bright side, I unleashed the GMO watch-dogs who brought back some optimistic news for the future. In the middle of it all, I had the honor of being asked for a radio interview to discuss the organic farmers’ market trend in Taiwan, but honestly, aside from slapping some information togetheron the subject, I am no expert (or am just too modest ), and so I kindly suggested someone more appropriate and knowledgeable, hehe (Annie, I hope the interview pans out for you!).
With two months lefts, before we roll into 2015(!), my self-assigned challenge of eating through and reviewing the 100 establishments from the 雄好呷 book before the end of the year is clearly a lost cause 😄 . I’ve actually eaten at more than the 15 places reviewed, but the inspiration to write isn’t always there, and I’ve also kept going back to some favorite haunts instead of venturing into unknown territory. Ah well, as they say here, 慢慢來.
