相信大家只要提到雪梨,第一個會想到的景點就是Sydney Opera House啦!!
但你們有發現…上面那張照片其實就是它本尊嗎?

 

一年一度的Vivid Sydney被評選為澳洲2013年的最佳節日,它是一個由燈光、創意、音樂及科技所組成,將整座雪梨市區妝點成絢爛的奇幻城市。在18天的展出期間,雪梨街頭免费展示各式燈飾及動態燈光裝置,同時舉辦一系列世界級創意產業論壇和大型現代音樂表演,燈光秀由各國藝術家餐與創作,許多雪梨代表性的建築都將在精心設計的燈光投射下閃耀光芒,讓到訪的旅客目眩神迷。

 

就讓親身感受過Vivid Sydney活力、夢幻與現代的筆者推薦你幾個不容錯過的燈光秀據點吧!

雪梨歌劇院帆船造型的建築設計本來就非常壯麗,覆蓋上3D投影更加凸顯出它的結構美

 

Customs House

每年最有趣的燈光裝置就屬海關大樓了!除了配合音樂在外牆以3D影像投影,2013年海關大樓的燈光裝置採取互動式的設計,民眾可以在大樓前的廣場跳舞,隨著民眾的舞蹈可以變換投射在大樓的燈光色彩。
而2014年的設計則是用燈光"雕塑"出各種樂器,當你碰觸雕塑前的觸控式螢幕,你就可以把那個樂器的色彩、光線、形狀跟聲音帶到現場中。

 

Darling Harbour

延續2013年的一大亮點"繽紛水舞劇場(The Vivid Aquatique Water Theatre),2014年的Vivid Sydney主辦單位以雙倍壯觀的水舞秀驚豔大家,由法國國際水秀公司(Aquatique Show International)打造四個巨型水幕以及大幅面的投影,加上四個大功率的全彩雷射光束,在每個整點都有5~6分鐘的雷射燈光水舞秀。
個人非常推薦大家鎖定星期六Darling Harbour 晚上8:30的煙火秀,看完還可以等9點的水舞秀,讓你省時又省力!

(水舞燈光秀為6 pm~11 pm的每個整點)

 

Sydney Harbour & Sydney Harbour Bridge

Vivid Sydney在2014年第一次延伸到雪梨港灣上,搭配壯觀的港灣大橋燈光秀,今年各个遊輪、渡輪以及水上計程車都會披上繽紛的LED燈光,成為燈光秀的一部分,它們的颜色由Intel的電腦控制技術,藉由最新的衛星導航定位,當他們從不同位置進入港灣將會改變船上的燈光顏色。

雪梨港灣大橋則採用互動式裝置,從位於靠近Luna Park的海濱步道所設置的互動式觸控螢幕,你可以選擇自己喜愛的顏色和排列順序,近距離觀賞自己的創作。

 

看完以上分享,相信大家一定非常想親臨現場,可惜2014年的已經結束囉~
不過大家可以趕快安排2015年的假期親身去體驗Vivid Sydney噢~

 

2015年的展期為5/22~6/8,別去錯日期唷!

藝妓回憶錄的紅色隧道

六月 10 2014 Published by under 食記x校園x餐廳活動

很多人到日本京都旅遊,是專程去賞櫻賞楓的,
假若時間允許,
在這裡非常推薦一個不能被忽略的景點-伏見稻禾大社。

IMG_4625

許多人會對這個景點名稱,或許不那麼熟悉,
但只要提到在藝伎回憶錄中,
小百合在一整排的紅色鳥居中奔馳而過的畫面,
應該都對這一幕留下深刻的回憶。

當然除了令人震撼  一望無際的紅色鳥居外
伏見稻荷神社還有個看點就是隨處可見…..可愛的狐狸神!!

3未命名

 

在日本相傳狐狸是會帶來錢財的吉祥動物,
所以想求財的人來伏見稻荷大社就對了!!

未命名

在神社裡隨處可見不同造型的狐狸神
據說嘴裡都會咬的物品代表著庇佑的事物

未命名2

 

 

在走訪了京都必去景點–金閣寺和清水寺後,
別忘了來到伏見稻禾大社親身感受紅色隧道的魅力

忠食。旅行

六月 06 2014 Published by under EZ心情

 

各位忠食的朋友,應該常聽到這句話「旅行的目的地,並不是一個地點,而是看待事物的新方式。」by 亨利米勒。

如果你也認同並享受這種情緒;是不是也跟我一樣想像"美食"在旅行畫布上,更增添了一種色彩。

而在每次旅途or冒險中,你又得到了那些顏色!?

接下來,就讓我用色彩來敘述並回憶自己最熟悉的"旅圖"

 


 

有時候在做旅行的功課, 我們會訂一個心目中最高級的餐廳來犒賞自己或孝敬父母;孝順如我當然是選擇後者,那是一抹孝順的橘紅色

旅遊人生就是要變成當地人啦

五月 30 2014 Published by under EZ心情

       很多人旅遊可能是走馬看花加逛街,我個人還偏好做當地人愛做的休閒活動,往往出國旅遊都要耗盡我一個月以上才能滿足我內心的探險因子,所以,到當地成為當地人變成我旅遊的宗旨,今天讓我介紹澳洲伯斯。

      我最瘋狂的行為就是用力走了4個小時抵達SWAN RIVER,出發前背包還裝了三份吐司跟一大瓶水,我這人只怕餓死不怕累死XD! 抵達SWAN RIVER這美景實在是難以形容,多希望這河上小屋是我的!(我要當包租婆想瘋了~)

 SWAN RIVER

另外一個變態行為就是要搭訕澳洲的小朋友(這是我的癖好),完全不管爸媽臉上有三條線的感覺

              小妹妹被我嚇到

  越糾纏年紀越小==她只是個寶寶啊

33687_433592873172_6953279_n

  握手也要像政客~~

跟小朋友

當然!!人生最不能錯過的就是要進Casino賭一下(是我這樣想拉) ~伯斯Casino只要辦會員卡就可以有5杯 free drink~另外記得要搭專屬BUS順便購買10元票券就可以擁有buffet吃到飽,辦會員卡Casino還會退5元澳幣給您,主要是希望您能在裡面好好玩樂一翻!!

賭場P1080248 (1)

   

人生除了賭之外,自給自足的補給活動很重要,不用錢更重要!!

想吃魚就爬下橋墩釣魚(因為澳洲海鮮爆貴XD)!!

其實當我爬下去時尿都快滾出來XD…..後來是有三人協助我~從上往下幫我慢慢放到地面上,

不然我想我會攀著橋墩木頭下不去==

這真的很高!!!!!!!我又沒有180==

我釣魚的英姿

陸地上的活動不夠的話,就往天上飛吧!!澳洲人最不怕戶外活動會冒險,我當然也要嘗試一下當機長的快感!

飛機駕駛艙還有教練陪我~超級興奮

藍天白雲+飛機!

 所以在國外不只可以逛街採買~有機會的話一定要跟當地朋友認真的體驗生活!!!當然也不要忘記吃美食~下次有機會再來報導一下美食YA

Israel, A Startup Nation

四月 03 2014 Published by under Design

I recently had the opportunity to visit my parents in Israel. 

Israel is a nation with interesting stories. During the 6th Century the diaspora(the historical exile and dispersion of the Jews) began. Starting from the the conquest by the Babylonians, followed by the Romans….As the persecution continues, the Jews fled to many different parts of the word including, US, France, Canada, UK, Russia, Argentina, Germany… 

 It was not until 1948, the Israel nation was established. Even after the establishment, many of its neighboring countries were eager to wipe them out from the map. Israel shared its border with Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon…Wars between its neighboring countries persisted even until today.

However, even with all the instability, the nation was able to attract many financial capitals into the nations. Israel has formed its own financial center at Tel-Aviv. Today, Israel has a GDP per capita of USD36,200.(Taiwan’s GDP per capita is at 20,706 ). Israel currently has the world second highest startup firms (lagging behind US only), and largest number of NASDAQ-listed companies outside North America. In 2010, according to IMD, Israel ranked 17th among the world’s most economically developed nations. 

According to the World Economy Forum, Israel is …

1st in the world for flexibility and adaptability
1st in the world for scientific research
1st in the world for entrepreneurship
1st in the world for information technology skills
1st in the world for expenditure on R&D (as % of GDP) 2nd in the world for innovative capacity
2nd in the world for venture capital
4th in the world in utility patents per million population 

With all that being said, let me share some of the photos taken during my trip to Israel.

 

 Tel-Aviv : The Financial Heart of Israel and of the World

IMG_2207-1 

The building behind is where my dad works at and is also where the Taipei Economic & Cultural office is located. The building is occupied by many large firms such as IBM, Deloitte, Accenture, BCG….

 

 Language – Hebrew:

IMG_2198-1

The national language is Hebrew. English is not widely used in Israel. It is hard to communicate in English even in Tel-Aviv. The Hebrew language is written from right to left. The above receipt is written in Hebrew, making no sense to me!

 

FOOD! What do they eat

IMG_2141-1

Above is a picture of my family having a meal by the beach. The sunshine is great at Israel, almost too much for most time. As you can see, we have to have our sun glasses on to prevent the brightness of the sun. The amount of rain that Israel gets in a year is about the amount of rain we get in a  day in Taiwan! Well, talking about food, their main source of starch is from bread. They have a bread called Pita, which is a flat bread, usually comes in a round or oval shape. Most of their vegetables come in the form of salads. Its hard to find cooked vegetables in Israel. My mom tries to stir fry the vegetables at home, but it tasted really bad since most of the vegetables sold in Israel are not meant to be cooked. By the way, Israeli really love cucumbers!  You could find cucumbers in most of their dishes.

Overall, their food are very light on the stomach: does not contain much grease and does not contain heavy seasonings. Yes, the cons for such a healthy diet is the sacrifice on the taste. It really doesn’t taste that good 🙁

However due to the heathy diet and passion for exercising, Israelii’s life expectancy is among the world highest: 80 years of age(excluding the ones that sacrified during the war!).

 

Jerusalem: One of the oldest city in the world!

Located on a plateau in the Judean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea. Jerusalem is the most populous city in Israel, with a population of 8 million.

TEMPLE

IMG_2070-1IMG_2033-1 

The picture above is the temple where the coffin top Jesus laid upon is currently located. The coffin top that Jesus laid upon after the crucifixion.

WAILING WALL

IMG_2013-1IMG_2007-1

 The picture above was taken at the wailing wall, also known as the western wall. The western wall is a remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Jewish Temple. The walls stands about 8m high and its a site for Jewish prayers and pilgrimage.

The picture on the left is a picture taken during a ritual for a boy’s coming of age. Each Jewish boy would come to the wailing for the coming of age ritual at the age of 14. As you may wonder, the little black box tied to the forehead on some men in the picture is a tiny version of the bible.

The wall is separated into two areas, one side for the men and one side for women. The men and women are not allowed to cross over to the other side. 

If you take a close look at the wall. There are many holes on the walls with papers inside them. These paper are not trash from the visitors, but are messages from each of the believers to god. They believe that placing their messages into the walls is a way for communicating with god.
