Re: Taiwan Up, Taiwan getting caught with pants down

Staring at Taipei 101 in a cold and misty day could be sentimental. It makes me think of the days I saw it built from the ground up. Before that was Grand Hyatt Hotel. And before that were Taipei World Trade Center and International Trade Building, -- I remember at that time I was still a child and...

Re: Taiwan Up, Taiwan getting caught with pants down

Staring at the Taipei 101 had just become a modern ritual during this momentary "transitional phase" from one yearly calendar to the next. During this highly emotional charged situation, who has the time to be verbose? It is best to be terse, succinct, laconic and to the point. I am sure that was Ta...

Re: Taiwan Up, Taiwan getting caught with pants down

I did suggest the word "捨" as an alternative. The word "空" seemed to associates too closely with escapism and reclusiveness. Buddhism can be rather anti-competitive in a dissocciative sort of ways. We can't always run away from diffculties of our lives. Obiviously, what seemed so obvious isn't alway...

Re: Taiwan Up, Taiwan getting caught with pants down

My Yoga instructor who is non-Asian and speaks no Chinese tattooed a Chinese character "放" on her wrist. She meant to convey the sentiment of let-go or emotional liberation. Is the word "放" the best choice? As far as I know, Chinese do not use the word "放" all by itself. It is usually paired with an...

Taiwan Up, Taiwan getting caught with pants down

I was a bit taken-aback to see the display of "Taiwan Up" on Taipei 101. This shoot-from-the-hip wording is "cleverly" unconventional. The meaning of this word combination is not too difficult to ascertain if you really have to. But why did so many native English speakers claim that they don't under...

Re: 我國技職學生英文程度落後日本一大截

Step 1 and 2 requires certain degrees of reality-defying. It is not recommend for all you straight-shooters out there. Never-the-less, reality is how you choose to define it. When going gets tough, the tough looks right into the situation and denies it. Don't be too surprised when you realized that ...

我國技職學生英文程度落後日本一大截

Language proficiency is a matter of maturity and sophistication. Maturity and sophistication takes time to develop and effort/incentive to sustain. News like 英文程度落後 in Taiwan is indicative of something much more profound. First of all, let's not care too much about 英文程度. Bad 英文程度 is really not the e...

Re: Picking Your Brains II: Ways to Express Price Variation

If you really want to know all there is to know about how to describe the ups and down of prices in general. The best place to go is Bloomberg's Youtube channel or its competitors that do day-to-day and up-to-the minute financial market watch. There are great deals of intricate nuances in each insta...

Hi Wayne C.,

It's amazing that you can always feedback with a relevant song.
Or should I just say that "I have been around the block"
