“China, meet World.  World, meet China.” It’s statement is pretty clear. World Fairs and Expositions are a chance for the nations of the world to trade ideas and peddle their cultural and industrial wares.  This year’s show, held in an emergent and increasingly confident Shanghai, […]

Well, it’s been a while, Shanghai, but it’s good to be back; a great night out with Gerhard and the Shanghai design mafia, and home in time to see the sunrise from the 49th floor.  I might regret this tomorrow! Before I head out. Macdonalds […]

So I am here in China for the first time in six months or so; at least since joining the Latitude design team. I am here during Expo, and I will be sure to take the chance to go and take a look at it […]

Shanghai Quickie

Written by . Filed under Made in Taiwan. Tagged , , , , . No comments.

View from my hotel room – I am quite a big fan of the Renaissance in Shanghai – not super downtown, but close enough. It also floats above Zhongshan Park, which I had written about before. It’s quite a pleasure to drop in on the […]

Shanghai Tools

Written by . Filed under Made in Taiwan. Tagged , , , , . No comments.

The right tools for the right job (notice the saw, for cutting that huge diameter of pipe). Of course, four people need to watch at all times, in China. It shouldn’t, but I found myself exceedingly amused by seeing a scooter on fire while on […]

Total Eclipse of the Heart

Written by . Filed under Made in Taiwan. Tagged , , , , . No comments.

The longest eclipse of the sun for 300 years, and only my second total eclipse ever … and it was raining! Still, lots of fun running outside the China Dell office rattling off a bunch of shots. Thought it was rather amusing to see lights […]

Ye Shanghai

Written by . Filed under Made in Taiwan. Tagged , , , , . No comments.

In Shanghai and Hong Kong for a few days of business and pleasure. I haven’t quite found time enough to talk about the amazing number of visitors to Taiwan in the last couple of weeks, and indeed my intrepid parents in New Zealand, but I […]

Music & Aesthetics

Steve blagged some journo tickets to see the National China Beijing Opera as they visited town for their one-off Sunday night review, and it gave me the chance to have my first ever taste of this form of theatre that one might assume everyone sees […]

Zhongshan Park

Zhongshan Park from my hotel room I wait six months to travel with Dell, and then I travel twice in three weeks. Can’t complain. High above Zhongshan Park, through my hotel window I looked down each morning to throngs of people doing Taiqi, flying kites […]

Shanghai at Work

Written by . Filed under Made in Taiwan. Tagged , , . 1 Comment.

It took six months, but I finally navigated the corporate travel application system to jump on a plane (well, two – I missed out on the direct flight) to run over to Shanghai for three days of meetings. A tough few days in the saddle, […]
