Blogger celebrates in Tainan and Kaohsiung

The launching of the blog “Living and Loving Art” called for a celebration cake. The Shangri-La Far Eastern Plaza Hotel in Tainan came up with a yummy two-tiered walnut cake. The white chocolate heart was a loving touch. The patisserie department even artistically scribbled the name of the blog on the heart. Big, red strawberries on the cake provided good cheer on this memorable occasion.

The fireworks at the Kaohsiung Main Stadium, the site of the 2009 World Games, on May 20 brought this celebrating blogger to a new high. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra made its Taiwan debut on this night of nights, playing Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” for opening piece.

Toyo Ito’s architecture cut an impressive silhouette against the Kaohsiung sky. The pyrotechnic display, which accompanied the Tchaikovsky selection, ignited the night, exciting this blogger with ideas to create bursts of virtuosity on “Living and Loving Art.”
