At work in Taiwan

 

For a new servicing job at "Hunya Foods" and after so many months I spent in Taiwan in 2009, I felt like kind of home coming to a good ol' place I always loved to stay at. Big thanks to all the machine operators and to the guys from the R&D departement for their dedicated work on the new products!

Jin Fu Temple, Taoyuen

 

The "Jin Fu Temple" was built in 1813 where the entire historical track of Taoyuan City began. Worshippers go to this temple to pay respects to Chen Yuanguang, a general in China’s Tang Dynasty. The front temple and inner temple have double-eaved roofs and overhanging gable roofs – a rare sight!

When I went out for a sunday afternoon stroll, I found there are quite a few more little temples and shrines I never payed attention on my earlier trips to Taoyuen City before. So I took the opportunity to make up a bit what I missed last year... And Wow, it was really worth it!!

The city streets of Taoyuen with dozens of colorful advertisements, traffic signs and hundreds of motorcylce scooters darting in and out is the typical daily traffic scenery of every Taiwanese city spiced up with their countless flavoursome foodstalls along the roads.

Taoyuen at Night

 

Before nightfall, when all the colourful neon lighted advertisements start to gleam and begin to compete each other for every customers attention to their products - Then it's the best time to walk a meal off with a stroll or going for a night shopping tour at cooler temperatures :-)
