Who I Follow
步步驚心 (Startling Each Step) was first broadcast in fall 2011. It's a production from China. The actor who portrays 4th prince, 吳奇龍 (Nicky Wu), is from Taiwan. He was in a 3 member boy group called 小虎隊 (The Little Tigers) that was active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. For those of us who grew up during that time, he still holds a special place in our hearts. Welcome to the club! (^_^)

Thank you! I am really enjoying the show, and now my friends and I are looking up The Little Tigers to see what you’re talking about. It’s very interesting.

Also, I just tried the fruit in your icon picture last night at the insistence of the fruit stand owner- it was really good!

Glad you’re having fun with 小虎隊! (^o^)

We call the fruit 釋迦 (shi jia in Mandarin, shi kia in Taiwanese), which is also the the name of one of the Buddha. It’s because the fruit looks like the top of the Buddha’s head. I think the English name is custard apple. It’s one of my favorite fruits!

No mail today (sadly), but I got a postcard from Taiwan! Anyone know what it translates to?

還我河山 is a quote from 岳飛 (Yue Fei), a military general from 宋朝 (Song Dynasty). It means “return my country.” The photo is from 馬山觀測所 (Mashan Observation Post) on 金門 (Kinmen Island), one of the islands of 臺灣 (Taiwan).

I wish I knew what this tea is called! None of it is in English except the address, which is in Taipei. Too bad, this has become a favorite oolong of mine! Oolongs are so frigging good ^w^

It’s Four Season Oolong from Yung-An Tea. A description is available on their website (in Chinese, Japanese, and English).
