    The rout of the Nationalist Party, or Kuomintang , in Taiwan by the opposition Democratic Progressive Party in local elections on November 29 changed Taiwan's political landscape overnight, making the DPP candidate for president in 2016 the odds-on favourite and possibly marking a change in cross-strait relations. While each of the 9-in-1 elections was a local race, cumulatively, they constituted a referendum on the performance of the Ma Ying-jeou presidency.

    3 Dec 2014 | 12:18 pm
    The following letter was published in the Taipei Times today. In the letter I suggest that Taiwan should adopt pre-poll and absentee voting to reduce the level of disenfranchisement in elections. On the same day that voters turned out for the nine-in-one elections in Taiwan, there was also a state election in Victoria, Australia. I followed both elections with interest and voted in my home state of Victoria. Voters in both Victoria and Taiwan can be pleased about the way the elections were conducted and have a high degree of confidence in the integrity of the results. One major difference…

  • The battle for Taichung on social media

    Taichung is a key battleground in Taiwan’s local elections. Overall victory or defeat in the elections is likely to be judged on who wins the mayoral race in Taichung. Both major parties have a realistic chance of winning what is likely to be a close contest. Hence, they will be investing a great deal in their campaigns. The closeness of the contest in Taichung makes it an ideal site for analysing and comparing the campaign strategies of the two major parties. In this post I have done some basic analysis of how the two mayoral candidates are using social media to get their message out…

At the same time as the event in Melbourne a crowd estimated at 350,000 was turning out in Taipei. This represented a massive show of public support for the student-led Sunflower Movement which has occupied the Legislative Yuan in Taipei since 18 March. The movement’s key aim is to ensure that…

We paid the admission fee and headed into the main area. On the way we passed these cute piglets.  Phoenix has never seen piglets before, so naturally we had to show them to her. Notice that someone has painted the piglets’ toenails a bright red. Phoenix showed no fear, and wanted to touch them right away.

This scene is just one of many places where the road is blocked off to traffic.  It’s because there is no road to travel on ahead. I ignored the police tape and took a walk down the sidewalk like I owned the place.  No one looked at me twice.

    Arashiyama was the last area I visited in Kyoto and it was a glorious beautiful day, filled with gorgeous scenic views, mountain wild monkeys, enchanting bamboo forests and magical hidden temples. You can probably spend a whole day there slowly soaking in the atmosphere, sipping tea in the mountains or just enjoying the local markets and street food.   The most famous of this area is probably the bamboo forest/groves, not only for its tall bamboo trees along the narrow paths, but also for the locals walking around wearing their traditional Kimonos and Japanese girls dressed up in…

    Lots to see and do in Kyoto, and by the end of the first day you’ll probably already feel a bit over-templed. Some temples are very impressive, and some more humble, some are Zen, some Buddhist, and if you’re a person of details by day 2 you might already start noticing the little details that make those different. The Silver Pavilion, or Ginkaku-ji, is considered by many as a tourist highlight, but probably not so much for its grandeur as there are far more impressive temples and gardens in Kyoto but more for its odd story. Though after three days of endless temples, it…

One of the highlights in the area is a monkey park, but not your regular zoo style but an area of land where monkeys roam free with some spectacular views of Kyoto from above. To get there, you’ll have to hike up, and it’s not a short hike. But, trust me, once you get up there it’ll all be worth it. This is probably one of the best lookouts on the region, and probably the easiest one to access. Those monkeys sure know how to pick…

But, a strong government that cares about public spaces and incoming tourism can pull off some pretty remarkable things.

  • Abstracting the Essence

    Mark Forman
    27 Nov 2014 | 10:37 pm
    One part of photography I really love is doing abstract photos. Abstract is a pretty broad word meaning different things to different people. What I like is taking something and giving it much greater significance than it's original context-so you can also say exaggerating that element. It can also mean something that loses it's natural state and appears somewhat altered. 50mm lenses generally are good lenses for doing those kind of abstractions as in this case.

I'm finally getting much closer on my processing efforts which still eave the challenge of finding the right colors and composition. This image was the last one from my photowalk yesterday.
