YES WE CAN

Vancouver can be as competitive.
That is to compare with rising Asia.
But we have to change mind set.

It is a regional issue in Taipei.
And it intends to sharpen up the edge to compete.
That is the airport in first line as business center.

Seeing what Taiwan is aiming at.
We can’t help but to think.
Vancouver has to be as competitive.

After all, it is the door of BC.
That goes with the full West region.
Burnaby will be fully affected.

Headline in Taipei is this.
Two major airports will be national level business center.
Vancouver can be as ambitious.

Winter Olympic is gone.
But money spent big time.
We need better continuing usage of our investment.

Business China is hot.
All see Taipei as extension of China domestic market.
And life style Taipei can be charming.

This can be window shopping for all kind of business.
Time and money saved big time.
And it is stretching the imagination of all Taiwan’s creative thinking.

Taiwan is also making good assessment of China’s middle class.
The spending power is the focus of world.
Travel free for China visitors will be the goal at end of the year.

This is why I can’t wait to go back at earliest time.
That is to see if our airport is customers friendly now.
And their mentality toward Asian face is another.

SEX IN THE CITY

Gay Taipei is a missing link.
Flora Expo 2010, Taipei will need it.
That is to reach top international consumer.

SF told the world in 1994.
Gay is on the high end on income.
Air France was first to prove the market is solid in 1996.

They spend money on self.
Conventional supporting family like wife and kid is not an issue.
That makes them the best consumer ever since.

Asia has long on the conservative side.
Taipei, by old Chinese tradition, is evasive on the issue.
FLORA EXPO Taipei of course is not showing any effort.

But organizer must want this event profitable.
Gay Taipei, then, is good for the goal.
But no one is even thinking about it yet.

There is still time.
It is up to few who care.
Action must start now.

You can think it in classical term.
Or you prefer the modern and current version.
It is time to show the world event all inclusive.

And action pack is a promise.
Flower to represent Gay Taipei is a start.
Invitation to world gay communities is next.

Flora Expo will be on from November 6 to April 25, 2011.
“Show girl” is current hot subject in city.
That makes “Show Boy” the best follow-up.
 
Prince of Gay Taipei is a good thought.
They will all be in name of flowers for representation.
Each month will be uniquely illustrated for the duration.

November, month of Thanksgiving in US, is one.
December is Xmas for all in the world.
JANUARY is New Year everywhere.

FEBUARY will be locally for Chinese New Year.
March and April will be new spring and April Fools Day.
And there will be a big final bang.

Next year will be the 100 YEARS OF REPUBLIC OF CHINA
Taipei has no choice but all out for the occasion.
Sex in the City T-shirt is a must.

Prince of Gay Taipei will be catchy.
Flower Boys will be hot.
It will snowball the occasion.

Gay fashion and trend will be maxed if with world gay communities.
And it is important with full flower representation.
Sexy will be the passion and style to make the event hot.

Flower, at end, will be deep-rooted in town.
Taste will attract high end spenders from now on.
That is why international gay communities the key.

But the Mayor is not helping.
Real public is in no way to get involved.
Transparency and accountability are not in sight.

All is a media play at the moment.
He thinks mainly the year end election.
That blinds him to see a chance to make history.

Taipei can be the Flower City of the World.
That can be better than running for Presidency.
All in Taiwan will remember him.

REALITY CHECK

Tracy McGrady signs 1-year, US $1.3 million deal, with Piston.
That is low for a super star.
It shows how bad he wants to play.
The reality is.
He is seeking a playing chance.

China is # 2 as Japan’s economy slows now.
All start wondering.
Is US next?
And US lag behind China in pursuit of clean tech.
It is catch-up time.

China, US play bluff on high seas.
US military had long history to make things worse.
This one is a thorn in the eye.
State Department official declare Security pact covers Tiaoyutas.
No wonder top US scholar declares US act out like terrorist.
 
Birth rate Taiwan is reaching zero.
Population growth sounds off warning.
Who will support the aging mass?
Government is playing catch-up.
Things are not looking good.

Copycat was a dirty name.
But now it is a brand for China.
Have no idea how or when it became legit.
It is everywhere now.
And big corporations get rich by it.

India Independence Day was August 15.
39 companies celebrated.
In old days, it was 150 or more.
Many moved to China.
But they are due back soon.

Taiwan will have municipal elections at end of year.
They will be in new form of 5 mega cities.
But the strangest thing is.
Why major activities went over sea to US?
It is no way because more voters there.

EMPIRE BUILDING

“Image Maker” made my day in UC Berkeley school days.
It implied Reagan story.
That is how he was skillfully transformed.
It is from a sunset secondary film star to a rising son in politics.

That is the power of America dream.
The man became President of USA.
And it tells us.
Everything is possible.

My life then became a constant duplicator of the concept.
I often wondered.
How I will be the master of the game.
My fancy is an empire builder.

It has been real for me.
Looking back, all said I had a rich life.
It earned me a reputation.
That was nothing small for Tom Tao.

Jones Cup and Taiwan Pro-basketball were my fancy in sport world.
World Anti-Communist League was international relation in lesser situation.
And German Taipei Trade Office allowed me to play the business and tech.
I was an empire builder.

Now I am having a chance to try a new one.
It is not for me personally.
It is for my friend.
He wants to be king of Mekong River.

He connects well in Cambodia.
But he needs organization adjustment.
Being a nice guy hurts him.
Boardroom is not a classroom.

He has Philippines, Singapore, US, China and Cambodia in full network.
His base is in Taiwan.
His eye is on Burma.
And he notices the new need in India.
 
It is vital for Taipei as headquarter to update.
It ought to have full detailed and complete information at all time.
All will be at his finger tip by today’s tech development.
That is essential for man in charge.

The focus is event or issue of the day.
They ought to be ready on hand.
That is what command center is all about.
And this is just a start.

Asia is the place to be in this century.
China interest comes first for next 3-5 years.
But US presence must be monitored too.
Taipei has to be brain to all things.

Service mentality is essential to the whole organization.
The newest American Express Blake Card shows the way.
All has to be in high end of example.
Local underground casino also serves the customers the best.

Can you imaging.
They are utilizing Super Rail to please customers in convenience.
Human ego for self interest into service is at its best.
Empire is here to serve.

Staffs must be kin to politics.
All join government press releases need good analysis.
Latest between Taiwan and Singapore demonstrated that.
That goes to future Cambodia and Philippines ones with Taipei vital.

Republic of China will reach 100 in next year.
Events and issues with the best creative effort will get the most attention.
His Tainan root and connection are good.
It can play major role in this election year.

China inland cities development is another focus.
And China’s Indian Ocean economic interest also is immediate future.
Economist’s success in market strategy comes to mind.
That is “with us, you become smart”.

Forums will be cheapest way for public attention.
Current in Taipei is China political and tourism forums.
They are making the best of example.
We need to link China, India, Cambodia and Philippines by using forums wisely.

Food in taste reaches far and near in our daily life.
That is why it is a necessary tool.
We need our own food presentation.
That ought to fit into healthcare and hotel program.  

INDIAN OCEAN

China is ambitious.
Trade is the game.
The strategy is to expand the trade zone by using the south province.

It will be the corridor to reach South Asia.
A super trade zone in Indian Ocean is the goal.
That will change the area forever.

This will test the wisdom and skill of both China and India.
Peace and trust are the main concern.
And friendly third party is very important.

It is clear to see US interest to use India and Vietnam as local balancing force.
The rest seems to be on China side.
Conflict is clear and obvious.

Yes, recent USA and Korea military exercise worry many.
And more exercises will follow.
US are determined to demonstrate his Asia presence.

Many want peace but few are not.
Some are opportunist.
That makes situation dangerous.

Then we need the wiser few to create more incentives.
That is to keep peace work.
The Indian Ocean “move” can be a constructive one.

My friend has strong Cambodia and Philippines tie.
And his base is strong in Taiwan.
China needs to be correctly involved to make world a safer place.

Taipei is a balancing point.
We can set up shop here as thinking tank center.
Meetings here often will help all to understand what is the best for all.

West is not in touch with the new generation of China.
They see all in power now as part of one party dictatorship.
The peace nature or hardship in growing up as training is not credited.

Obama and the team is a perfect example.
That makes the world dangerous by not understanding.
CIA has all the correct hard information without software understanding.

India can do better even with scar of past losing war experience.
This working together in the same region is the best to know each other better.
Together, the world can see the difference.

Yes, we will work hard to make it possible.
Taipei will be the place to get them together often.
That is why Taipei is the best.

GAY TAIPEI

The FLORA EXPO will be in town.
But there is no flower representing gay Taipei.
And gay has a large community here.

This can be the best coming out time.
To name a theme flower is a first step.
And to send out invitation to all gay communities in the world is second.

Local gay group ought to create own gay flora expo event for the occasion.
This is a “once in life time” opportunity.
It is especially true for the creative and ambitious.

Taipei can reach out in every way to the world.
Its creative can shine gloriously.
But it seems all silent on this front.

And gay consumers have long being the best in the world.
But Taipei is being conservative.
Officials had long avoided this in the past.

Now, it is catch-up time.
It is the best for creative few.
The short of time may serve the situation the best.

MADE IN TAIWAN

MIT was the pride of the island long time ago.
But it had hit the dust ever since.
Now, it is coming back.

Yes, it is hot again.
This time China is a factor.
It is a brand they can’t say no.

China is the focus of world attention.
No one in the world can afford to miss the stage.
And they are in driver seat.

Made in Taiwan is a brand now.
And the special cultural advantage shows.
China side’s obsession is the power.

Computer as pride of MIT helps.
Taipei computer show from August 5 to 9 will prove it again.
China buying groups are here in mass.

And the show is free.
That by itself is a telling tale.
The gate fee is nothing to the organizer.

Maybe you can’t be in Taipei.
But web site tica.org.tw will help.
To people there in person, door prize will be plenty.

No wonder Taipei is getting ambitious.
They are eyeing Asian Games in 2019.
And China is hosting the current one this year.

Shanghai is hosting the WORLD EXPO.
And Taipei will follow with FLORA EXPO.
To all ambitious, action is certainly in Asia.

政府外包

政府的功能是公權力的<執行>與相對責任的<完全>承擔,這權
責是絕對的,但我們現在看到的,卻是政府功能外包.

最近報導的雲隧消防,居然外包園藝商,更令人不可思議的是,這
卻是一間”空殼”公司,它包了政府七千萬的工程.

事實上,政府的事務外包,最明顯的,就可由報上人事廣告看出,其
中最多的,就是保全人員,幾乎天天都有,到處都是.

再仔細的去看,很多都是捷運保全,居然是每一段由不同公司外
包,這可是跟市政府”真正”需要<統一領導>時開玩笑.

大家都記得內湖捷運的風波,我那個七月四號就在現場,很明確
的就是,人為動線沒有管控,但所有焦點卻在系統體系上.

如果有人記得捷運開創期,那時可是從上而下,處處有人觀察確
定每一個流程與進度,就因為有第一現場的了解與掌握,才可能
有了當時後來的順利進行.

反觀那個七月四日,現場看不到任何工作人員,更不要說保全人
員了,因此”人線”成了無頭亂流,問題才大了.

現在看來,政府工作,連一個捷運都分段外包保全,看來真的有了
事,光是各段執行的協調,就保証是大問題.

帶過兵打仗的人都知道,聯軍經常是歷史上大戰的失敗一方,
國共大戰如果不是國民黨各軍頭不合作的話,今天的歷史就不
一樣了.

這就是馬郝二人的”盲點”,去開幕通車,卻看不到流線的人為空
白,而郝還是將門之子呢.

大的來看,如果政府公權力的執行,就這樣外包了,那責任呢?真
的有了事,那不亂才怪.

第一線的人,像保全,成了形式,出了事不死人才怪.花博就要來
了,郝政府準備好了嗎?

就有人指出,花博開場就是市選時,類似內湖線的事件,一發生,
這不但是國際大笑話,選票也保証跑光光.

對,問題就可以從捷運保全分段外包看出.

無怪有高明人士指出,民進黨年底市選看好,看來就靠花博捷運
出事了.

更有趣的是,大家都看不到郝團隊警覺重視,居安思危無人,蘇
當選可能性大增.

但蘇電視上的臉色正好相反,再一想就明白了,因為市長到手,
2012的總統大戰,就只能做幫手了.
