New Blog and More on Monga (艋舺)


My friend James has a new blog on different items, including Taiwan, called The Writing Baron. The blog has an interesting piece on Taiwan skimping on aid to Haiti, one of our few diplomatic partners. I'll put up a link here: http://thewritingbaron.com/ 

James is also going to write about Taiwan tennis, or so he says. Supposedly, Taiwan has the 71st-ranked player in the world, Lu Yen-hsun (盧彥勳), who's beaten Nalbandian, Hewitt, Coria and Murray in the past (you can wiki him for more). Last year, he gave Federer a bit of a run at Wimbledon, but lost 7-5, 6-3 and 6-2: http://ow.ly/1v0xb. Lu has also won the Israel Open.

I have a new story for Culture Taiwan, on Monga again, called Monga's Chest of Fortunes: http://ow.ly/1v0yB

Indeed the story on other blog is a great one. Wonder why not published on your own blog?

Thanks. I sold the story, simple as that. But I like that Web site. And they let me do whatever I want.
