Bond Fever

Bond Fever hitting Taiwan? Not too certain yet, since the biggest blockbuster of the past few months is local romance "Cape Number Seven." the largest Taiwanese movie hit in 10 or 20 years.
So Bond might need more than a Quantum of Solace to change that. According to reviews, the new Bond gives a lot of action, maybe too much, little romance, little humor, and tough mano-a-mano combat of the type we know from presumed Bond rival Jason Bourne. But I can live with that.
A Quantum of Solace, in Taiwanese cinemas from November 7.

Double Ten by Night

Maybe I should be turning this blog into a garbage can - sorry, receptacle - for random pictures of Taiwan.
Like this one, one of three pictures I took while passing by the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall around 9 in the evening.
With the special lights and the flags added for Double Ten - Taiwan's national day on October 10.
