It’s very strange that I should write more about
Taiwan but I would
write about .
As most of you know, my new friends Frederik’s family will be in New Zealand for
a family vacation. To get around the island, I think to rent a car from Snap
Car Rental is good. I guess you will worry about getting ripped off by this rental
car company. I would tell you about my experiences of renting a car in New Zealand . It might
come in handy in California . New Zealand

I thought the rental price would be budget. The lady at the counter suggested that we should upgrade to a full-size four-door (group E) car and the markup fee was only USD $10 dollars. You would be more comfortable and safer. This suggestion made our hearts beat faster. We agreed to upgrade. Then the upsell really begins when they asked what insurance coverage I wanted. The miss gave me two choices. I can get full unlimited coverage or their recommended coverage. She never said that insurance was option or that I can choose not to have it. She claimed that my insurance doesn’t cover everything if I get into an accident or the car was stolen. We were anxious that car napper stole the car. Finally, we decided to assume full responsibility. Luckily, we were safe.
But today I got excited when I surfed http://www.snapcarrentalauckland.com/. Experience
with rental cars from just NZ$19 per day. I should also plan to visit New Zealand
because it’s very cheap. New Zealand
It's worth to mention that you always drive on the left-hand-side of the road. The rule is different from ours in
. To rent
a motorcycle maybe a good choice so you require alpinestars gloves to protect
you. The Alpinestars WR-3 Glove is an all-weather touring glove and is both
100% waterproof and highly breathable, featuring advanced TPU molded knuckle
protection housed within the Leather main body construction for robust and
durable performance. If you’re going walking in the cold or rainy area, 100%
waterproof gloves are essential. Taiwan
By the way, if you keep some animals or pets, you should know how to care these animals. A guppy and sailfin molly died of hunger when we traveled in
Chicken Feeders or automated fish feeders are necessary for life. Korea

Taiwan, which is also named as the Republic of China, was founded in 1912 and it’s the first democratic republic in Asia. In 1949 the republic broadened its borders and now includes the islands of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, Matsu, Dongsha, Zhongsha, and Nansha.
The land area of Taiwan is about 36,000 square kilometers and it is shaped like a leaf. It is located off the southeastern coast of Asia. Japan is to the north; Philippines to the south These days Taiwan is getting more and more popular as a touristic destination, making it the perfect place to visit and spend some days, as it combines sea, monuments, culture and beauty of the landscapes.
Taiwan is located on the western edge of the Pacific and there is a lot of tectonic movement which creates these beautiful landscapes. Peaks and hills, plains, coastlines and basins, as well as numerous different natural landscapes combined with the nice subtropical and tropical climate provide different temperatures between the seasons. The species of animals and plants that live there are extremely rare sometimes and indigenous, so they are included in the endangered species. More than 18400 species are considered to live on the island and more of 20% of them are endangered.
When it comes to destinations in Taiwan that you can combine both pleasure and touristic attractions the choices are many.
Taipei is the capital or Taiwan and it combines both beautiful scenery and culture attractions. Don’t miss visiting the Long Shan Temple, Tamshui, National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine, as well as Ximending (Ximen Red House). When it comes to the landscapes and the scenery of the town it’s highly recommended to visit Elephant Mountain (as it also known as Nangang District Hiking Trail) and the Maokong Gondola in the mountain Maokong. The Maokong gondola route stops at Taipei Zoo, Maokong station and the Zhinan Temple. The Maokong station stop lies at the top of the mountain and it offers a panoramic view of the city. There, there is a nice restaurant where visitors can try local delicacies like noodles cooked with tea oil and glutinous rice accompanied with bamboo shoots.
Kaohsiung is one of the most beautiful towns in Taiwan and has both beautiful landscapes, like the Chichin Island and the Shoushan Mountain, two attractions that most tourists of the region visit. Chichin Seashore Park is created in the shore of the previously referred island and it’s very popular among the tourists. As for cultural attractions, tourists seem to prefer Buddha Memorial Centre, as a religious attraction as well as Fo Guang Shan Monastery. Qihou Paotai Storeland is an exceptional history museum and a must – see of the region.
Xinbei also provides great pleasure to visitors, as there are many things to do around. Do not forget to visit the Yeh Liu Geo Park, which is located in the area. It is a cape in the region of Wanli, near Taipei and it is famous for its hoodoo stones, the thin spires of rock that are formed by sedimentary stone. A lot of those rock formations have some creative names and the most known “The Queen's Head.” As for landscapes, the most romantic one in the region is Danshuei and you really need to visit Juming Museum, if you are around the area.
It’s a nice region where landscapes and sceneries are the most important things to see in the area. Taroko Gorge and the Tarako National Park are very beautiful and attract a quite big amount of tourists. Never go during a dry season, as the water rushing down the gorge and makes a world of difference. Ruisui and the local university are good spots to visit too.
There, you can visit Anping Tree House, a historic spot, as well as the Chimei Museum and the Confucius Temple. There is also a very nice historic museum, Tainan Parkthat, is a tourist attraction too, but not only. It’s a very nice landscape too.
If you need further information about getting in these regions or travel there from England, manchester airport contact number is the one you need to call. It's a very nice country to travel to, so don't hesitate to get more information about it.

If you have the ability to live anywhere in the world, where would you live? Of course, I would live in Taoyuan. But I suppose many people like Jay Pee will pick

Some people might question me about mag alloy wheels. You might say that I am supposed to be about job or making money online, but you forget that the root of all evil eats, transportation, and… er… excretes online money-making schemes. I had the impression that I drove without shock absorbers on

Recently I began to hate my boss because he did not want to renew the factory contract. Although I know maintaining a healthy working relationship is basic to keep the odds smooth and organization’s structural and objective goals to be met with, I have not escaped by sheer luck. I thought that if it all falls on you, being the employer; hence, you need to keep your team happy and cheerful around work. Don’t make me a dull boy because at the end of the day, I need active and dynamic people to take my company to success. ‘Happy employees’ is equal to the extent of my success and growth rate.
Don’t believe me? Get Apple’s example! They spend up to a fifth of their entire working day exclusive for creative thinking sessions, apart from the fun and frolics always going on there. They do make sure that they can inspire their staff to think innovatively and for that, they do everything that gives them the power and brain booster they need to keep Apple number one among the global tech arena.
So, as a manager, you need to know what can make your staff working productively and happily, and what does otherwise…as for otherwise, I’d come to that later.
1. You should hire priesthood holders because they have a responsibility to their employers. Regarding their responsibility to their employers, President Hinckley said: “You have an obligation. Be honest with your employer. Do not do Church work on his time.” This is the most important way. If you can not hire these church members, you can follow the ways below.
2. You need to question you’re working practices all the time. Rather than having yourself stuck with Hitler-like ways, remember this: you’re not at war and you absolutely don’t have to be a strict General type controlling your officers to fire freely. Take it easy on them and yourself. Think frankly and give them some motivations to like you, apart from excursion incentives.
3. Promote even the meekest of your employees to share their thoughts. You recognize they all should have a say when given a chance. Pay attention to everyone’s ideas, explain them their equally important and then see the results driven from this positive sign.
4. Be kind in giving them good bonus. Hey! They earned it in the final analysis. If you’re company is moving up easily, you have to indebt your employees for the success to. How about ‘employee of the month’ type awards? This would encourage them further to give in their 200% instead of a 100% that anyone can do as easily as slicing butter with a knife.
5. Who discern the secret of a great company’s leadership? It’s the way of life they build where people feel coming to work isn’t a part of their job, but they feel a part of it to get an opportunity to contribute to its expansion and progress.
If you consider you can be all the above, you will have a strong team of employees willing to do and die for you… of course, not word-for-word, though.
However, here comes the ‘otherwise’ part, I spoke of above; if you are unsuccessful to make them happy, you might either end up losing employees or worse, make enemies out of them.
And here comes the best part – the 6th point!
6. Just to be on the secure side, you must install a cell phone monitoring application like mspy into their work phones to make sure they don’t go behind your work. Before you install it, you can read http://www.mspy.com/blog/mspy-reviews-revealed-the-real-essence-of-the-app/. When you’re being all so good to them, they end up stabbing you badly. So, beware of that!

Also known as Fuxing Park, Jiaoban Mountain (Jiaobanshan) Park is located on the southwest side of Mt. Jiaoban. Among the main attractions at the roomy park are the dozens of high maples that turn crimson red in autumn. The park is also home to old towering pines and plum trees that turn the park into a sea of pink during the blossom season. I took the “梅的故事之二” picture because I thought there should be some cultural histories on it. Today I searched Google and found “In 2003, the Taoyuan County Government invited 12 well-known sculptors, including Wu Hsuan-san, to create public art for a sculpture park and public art education area at Jiaobanshan Park. The highly creative sculptures blend with the local landscape and have contributed to the tourism appeal of this area.” Wu Hsuan-san is one of Taiwanese best-known painters and sculptors. The answer seemed to content me.
Fuxsing Youth Activity Center is suitably located in Jiaobanshan Park. You can make reservations for rooms online if you can read Chinese. Or I can help you to reserve rooms at this hotel. Of course, you can use CouchSurfing to send me a new CouchRequest. If I am free, I will host you. Then you can take 5098 and 5104 bus to Jiaobanshan Park. Hope you travel to the beautiful place in Taoyuan.
