2015: The Year of the Goat Begins
This lunar year began with a decent-sized break in mid-February, with a trip to Hualien. The weather was fairly nice and it is always good to see the sea creatures at Ocean Park there.

You can see some of the first photos we took there. We will put up more soon.. See this photo album and all others in our PHP Photo Gallery.

Another Degree Added
Dateline: June 20, 2009. Taipei, Taiwan: The courses are done (two years ago). The thesis is done. The graduation ceremony (the second I attended while at the IMBA) is done. Now, I have my MBA. Now I am ready to meet the global financial crisis.

Welcome to the Living in Ilha Formosa Site!
This site highlights events, travels, interests and more. Life in Taiwan, famous quotes, pics from our lives here and while on the road. While I may not have an interesting life, at least I have an interesting look on life. And maybe, an interesting web site.
