Whale watching activity at Guishan Island, Yilan


" Guishan Island is the largest island of Yilan County. With the growing popularity of whale watching, Guishan Island has become the hottest tourist attraction."

The shaped board postcard was sent from Lyo, Japan. 
As a postcrosser, we send and received postcards from different countries. 
But I feel so much happier when I received from Japan instead, 
The reasons are 
1) neat hand-writing from the postcrosser
2) the pretty stamps 
3) never-disappointing postcard

Jota Cavitena


Jota Cavitena is a dance that shows strong Spanish influence. This jota (is a genre of music) came from the Spanish-speaking town in Cavite named Ternate. Costume is elaborately embroidered "Maria Clara" and "barong tagalog". Castanets fashioned from Bamboo provide clacking sounds adding to the lilting music.
