宜蘭-傳藝中心, originally uploaded by szachko.
Taiwan gets a lots of rainy days as a tropical island. Business community came up an idea to build up a semi covered side walk. Shoppers can still stroll from shops to shops without getting wet while store owners get more space above the ground flow.

It was weird to stare at these toilet bowls in the museum. However, no one can deny that the dominated ceramic industry in this Ying Ge town has been the major push engine to bring Taiwan into the modern world.

翡翠灣, originally uploaded by szachko.
It is kind of strange feeling to see Mediterraneance Architecture in Taiwan.However, this is one of the most popular wedding photo site.

Different from the west costume, people from Taiwan will have the wedding pictures taken and put into Album days or months before the actual wedding ceremony. The Album will be displayed in the reception.
The pictures could be taken in studios, or some famous places like Green Bay.

羅東-水岸森林, originally uploaded by szachko.
Even though the owner would like to classify this as a bed and breakfast place, this place is more than just a bed and breakfast. The feature rooms in this place have glass floor at the ground level and over look the pounds with plenty of Koi fish. The water of the swimming pool is from the natural cold spring from the ground. BBQ dinners along the swimming pool were a nice touch.

MOMA was extra-ordenary packed this week. We thought it was because of Tim's movies or Henri's Moment. We concluded that it was Eyjafjallajökull's ashes that settled European tourists in MoMA in this cloudy New York afternoon.

There is an Art Project displayed in Madison Square Park area: Multiple 6 feed tall male statures are installed in various places: some are in the park, and some are at the top of several buildings near by. Since the statures are so autonomy correct that people just cannot believe what they have seen and have to keep to re-adjust their curiosity in any forms. It is like cats playing with the catmints.

Mysterious Object

Originally uploaded by S. Zachko
Passing by this street million times, I just noticed this mysterious circle emerging at the sidewalk for the first time. Not sure what it will be used for. At the same time, a bicycle past by with two more circles. There are so many circles: visible, invisible, practical, unpractical. It only catches our attention when we focus on them....
