Typhoon Jangmi leashed Taiwan and ruined my weekend. Since there was nothing to do except to wait for Formula One Singapore GP. I tried to find some fun for my Otaku Day.
I placed my collected action figures in front of the monitor which showing proper photos, so I could create some interesting photos to simulate the real combat images.
And since we still have one day off on Monday due to this typhoon, I need to find something else to do for my extra Otaku Day.

September 20 and 21 were the days for 3C weekend of 2008 Taipei Shopping Festival (台北購物節). It was like a big carnival at Kwanghwa market area. The most interesting things to me were several art performers having interactions with visitors; including balloon art and magic shows.
People may call them clowns or art performers, but I prefer to call them "Happiness Makers".

Bitan is the most famous tourist site of Sindian City, because of the beautiful river, mountain and the suspension bridge. Also, people can enjoy boating there. The Taipei county government just completed the reconstruction of sidewalk of Bitan, removed the restaurants and souvenir stores and gave Bitan a new look. Thought it looks neat, I kind of miss those food stands and game booths.
The suspension bridge is the most famous attraction in Bitan. It was built in 1937, and rebuilt in 2000. Now the suspension bridge is strong, wide and can lasts for a long time, but do you know it was one of the most popular sites for suicide? When we were kids, we were told not to turn around when some one touched your back while you were on the suspension bridge.

The Taiwan Human Rights Memorial Jing Mei Park (台灣人權景美園區)is the second one and the only one memorial park in Taiwan. The location was a site for trial and detention of political prisoners during the time of Martial Law in Taiwan. It became the memorial park in 2007 to remember those people who fought for Taiwan's human rights.
I do respect those people who fought for Taiwan's human rights and gave their lives. I also would ask all people "forgive, don't forget". Let's learn from history and do not make same mistake, but do not create hate!

I spent 4 years (supposed to be 3 actually) in Danshui as a student of Tamsui Oxford College(淡水工商專校) ( now the Aletheia University 真理大學 ), so I have special feelings for Danshui. I like to visit it every few months and see the changes. Though the old Danshui in my mind is quite different from today's Danshui, I am glad to see it is getting better and more prosperous.
