Into the Dragon’s Mouth

When I visited the Spring and Autumn Pavilion at the famous Lotus Pond in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, I walked through the dragon’s mouth for good luck.

At the nearby Tiger and Dragon Pagoda you have to enter through the dragon’s mouth and come out from the tiger’s mouth. It is supposed to bring good luck to you if you follow this instruction. I did, of course!

WWE # 85 – Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan

This is for Jez‘ Water Photo Challenge.

The pictures were taken during my trip to the Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan. The view of the lake is breathtakingly beautiful but I hardly saw it. It was the beginning of the rainy season and pouring nearly all the time during my two day visit in May 2019. So wherever I went, there was water, water everywhere !

Always looking forward to your feedback.

Sculpture Saturday- Koxinga

For translation please use the Google Translate Button.

I took this photo in Tainan, Taiwan in May 2019.

The statue shows the national hero Zheng Chenggong, also known as Koxinga. In 1661 he defeated the Dutch and established the first Chinese kingdom on the island of Taiwan, and thus he has his own shrine dedicated to his worship in Tainan. The statue stands in front of the shrine.

For Sculpture Saturday, hosted by Susan Kelly at No Fixed Plans.

Always looking forward to your feedback.

Bright and delicious

A specialty from Taiwan is Mango Shaved Ice. Typical ingredients are cubed mangoes, condensed milk, sugar, mango juice and ice. The bright orange color is really appealing. Eating it on a sweltering hot day cooled me down quickly. And of course, it was very tasty. Fruity and delicious !

You should eat this refreshing dessert on a really hot day.

Day fifteen of Becky’s Bright Square Challenge. Thank you, Becky.

Sculpture Saturday – Pier-2 Art Center, Kaohsiung (Taiwan)

Pier-2 Art Center, Kaosiung, Taiwan

The Pier-2 Art Center is an art center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, on the site of an abandoned warehouse. Due to the persistence of local artists, the area was finally released and remade to be an arts center. In 2006, the Bureau of Cultural Affairs of Kaohsiung City Government and under management of the Kaohsiung Pier-2 Art Development Association and Shu-Te University’s art development workshop took over the center, starting a series of exhibitions.

When you are in Kaohsiung don’t miss Pier-2. Apart from stunning art in a harbour setting, cosy cafés and unusual shops you get a very nice break from all those temples and pagodas.

This is my first entry for the Sculpture Saturday challenge at No Fixed Plans. Thank you for hosting !

Always looking forward to your feedback.
