Taipei Main Station
To many Taiwanese, the Taipei Main Station was their first port-of-call when they first ventured this largest city of the island.
The multi-purpose transport hub is not just merely a transit point for many of those who decided to carve their niche in this modern cosmopolitan city, it’s where they see this building being the starting point to the next chapter of their life journey.
This sentiment is best illustrated in “Moving Forward”, a Taiwanese song made famous by singer Lin Qiang back in the 1990s (the Youtube of the MTV bottom right corner).
Long Shan Temple
Built in 1738, “Long Shan Temple” (literary translated as Dragon Mountain Temple) is located at Wanhua (or “Bangka” in indigenous tribe language) district of Taipei city.
Due to its historical stature, this temple has been a popular place for many worshippers and tourists alike.
Beside the “Goddess of Mercy” is the main deity, there are other deities such as “Guan Di”, “Matsu”, etc.
The present site of the Taipei Arena used to be that of the Taipei Municipal Baseball Stadium when the first CPBL (Chinese Professional Baseball League) match between Brother Elephants and Uni-President Lions were played in 1990
It was to say that during the formative period of the CPBL, Mr Hung Teng-sheng, the man behind the push for the Taiwanese baseball towards professionalism, would walk from Brother Hotel (which is owned by Hong and his brothers) to oversee the proceedings during that period.
