My first Post Card from Hong Kong with Intpostage.com

Last month I shared Howto Improve Your Post-office Box’s Performance and began to send postcards to other random members with Intpostage.com. I sent 9 postcards for the first time. I have not heard from anyone for a long time. Then I started to study Postcrossing which is an online project that allows its members to send and receive postcards from all over the world. I also signed up in Postcrossing but I found that I only can send 5 postcards initially and must write a given Postcard ID on the postcard. I finally realized why I could not hear anyone for a long time. I forgot to write a given Postcard ID on the postcard when I sent 9 postcards with Intpostage.com. I sent private messages to them. My luck's in. There are four of them to receive my postcards. The others did not reply or said no. I was quite confident that I will be a good postcrosser in the future.

After a few days I received this first postcard from Hong Kong with Intpostage.com. It's a fun thing to do. This a postcard about Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence which is a museum in Hong Kong, China, located in a former coastal defence fort overlooking the Lei Yue Mun channel, near Shau Kei Wan on Hong Kong Island. The new friend told me the story and I told I only a visit to Tai Koo. I'll visit here if possible and I can stay in East Hotel which is located at 29 Taikoo Shing Road, North Point, Hong Kong.

How to Improve Your Post-office Box’s Performance

It’s getting hot. I was not able to keep my head in the weather. I was busy because I wrote from morning to night. Last week at the self-reliance group meeting I had two actions — I will (1) talk with at least 10 customers to learn if they would buy more if I had more to sell and (2) visit at least four lenders and ask them the questions on the loan terms worksheet. The work was not so easy as I imagined. How will I get 10 customers to talk? A few days later Sophia told me that the lease on our post-office box expires at the end of this month. 
The only one postcard
She did not want to renew the lease because we only received one postcard over the past six months. The post-office box’s performance is too low. Then, after a few days, Intpostage.com let me have a beautiful idea. I'd think it well worthwhile to try.
This is about offline blog promotion ideas and you can improve your post-office box’s performance. In today’s review, we’re taking a looking at a nice program designed specifically to help you exchange souvenirs and postcards randomly. You send something, and then you get in queue to receive. The more you send - the more you will receive. It sounds great!
First you may click "Postcard Exchange" or “Souvenir Exchange”, than pressing "Send postcard to this user" or "Send souvenir to this user" to the given address providing it with ID according to instructions on the page. Receiver will enter that ID and then you get in queue to receive souvenir or postcard. Anybody can create their own groups for exchange anything by type or by interests.

I hope I'll have more ups in the future. I want to evaluate the success of the postcard exchange.

Redeem the ACHI Points you’ve earned for an Award Night at Sheraton Hiroshima Hotel Japan

It is a long time since I wrote previous post. I am very busy on Job Da Ren and became a self-employment group member to learn how to grow my business. My wife is pregnant with her first child. I need to look after her while I am off duty. She is also planning to start a baby shower. Oh, I have a lot of things to do. I also want to add my own events to my calendar. So do you know how to grow your business? The answer is you can create an event and let people search events on Qwaggle.com. In today’s review, we’re taking a looking at a helpful program designed specifically to help you to find events and fun thingsto do around USA.
My first idea is to redeem the ACHI Points you’ve earned for an Award Night at Sheraton Hiroshima Hotel Japan.

I chose entertainment and family category. The other categories you can choose are atrs, music, fitness, health, sports, recreation, religious and others. The event description I wrote:
“As a Fun Taiwan Facebook Fans, you have choices. Redeem the ACHI Points you’ve earned for an Award Night at Sheraton Hiroshima Hotel Japan. Although I have announce this event on Job Da Ren(http://job.achi.idv.tw) and this is special for Chinese, in the running month I want to share this on Qwaggle.

You can earn Achi Points for eligible Agoda hotel stays, Amazon, meeting and events, and more. See below for ways to add to my facebook fans.
1. Be Fun Taiwan fans http://www.facebook.com/i4taiwan
2. Backlink to Fun Taiwan: <a href=”http://funtaiwan.achi.idv.tw”>Fun Taiwan</a>
3. Use http://www.agoda.com?cid=1718839 to stay eligible Agoda hotels

Hope you enjoy the stay at Sheraton Hiroshima Hotel Japan.”

This is for Chinese so I try to create an event on Qwaggle.com. There was an error and my event couldn't be submitted. I guess it’s because the venue is not in USA. I felt sorry for this. But if you are in the area of traveling (vacation, business trip) or the events are comedy, festivals, fairs and kid friendly around USA, it’s still helpful for you.

If I cannot create an event, I will browse popular places to find some things to do. Things to do in Boston, Things to do in San Francisco, and others are in the list.. This is a list of towns and cities in the world in alphabetical order beginning with letters A. I like to travel New York, NY so I click the link on “Things To Do This Weekend”. I found “Improving Financial, Physical and Spiritual Health Through Meditation”. Great! It seemed to prove my point. You can grow your business on Qwaggle if you are in USA.

Are you seeking someone for marriage?

Here we are again. It’s definitely true that sex appeal can put on the market and, well, guys feel alone and like that female friendship. When I was single I have the same experience. Now I am serving in the bishopric of the Chung Li 1st Ward in Taoyuan, have responsibility for single adults and help them to develop personal relationships with each individual. I hope to help each single to seek someone for marriage. Today, maybe this will be a business model.
I found the newest product to join is http://www.loveloved.com. That’s going to be the center focus of today’s review, giving you a new chance to find each other on the Internet. What’s great about LoveLoved is that it's completely FREE! So many other dating sites have some fee involved, LoveLoved is 100% free! You can go ahead and signup and you are asked to create an account and enter some information. I was surprised that it’s very easy. Generally for any kind of social networking site you have to enter in your address and zip code. All of the fields are required for sign up. For me I like these signup processes.
Wait! It suddenly strikes me that I should share its services:
* They offer free membership for single men and beautiful women.
* After free registration we will be able to send messages to other members.
* Send messages to other members for free.
* Receiving messages as little from 50 cents per message.
* 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Ouch! That really hurts. If we want to read messages we need to pay. But I think it's acceptable. Dating with Russian Women on the site is very simple. Online international dating site LoveLoved features single Russian women and hot Ukrainian girls who searching long-term partners in different parts of the world for romance, love and marriage. If you find a beautiful Russian bride or hot Ukraine women, then you are in the right place.

Top 10 Small Tourist Towns in Taiwan - Beitou District

Beitou District (Chinese: 北投區) is the northernmost of the twelve districts of Taipei City, Taiwan. The historical spelling of the district is Peitou. The name originates from the Ketagalan word Kipatauw, meaning witch. Beitou is the most mountainous and highest of Taipei's districts, encompassing a meadow with rivers running through the valley which have abundant steam rising from them; the result of geothermal warming. The valley is often surrounded by mist shrouding the trees and grass.
Beitou is famous for its hot springs. In March 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan.
Beitou is one of the largest concentrations of hot springs and spas in the world. Once a small park where locals used to relax in the hot springs, the Beitou Valley has evolved today to include over thirty resorts; A 20-minute train ride north of Taipei takes you to Beitou. The resorts and spas are regarded by many locals and international tourists as among the most relaxing and rejuvenating places in the country. The spas consist of different degree pools (from cool to very hot) and minerals. However, residents of this district note that sulfuric fumes from the hot springs do ruin their electric appliances in the long term.
Latterly the waters themselves were the first and comforts like pretty baths, meals and massages came a distant second. Today Beitou supplies dozens of bathing options, from simply soaking your feet in the roadside streams (cost: nothing) to fascinating private baths in swanky resorts (cost: prepare your credit card for an exercises). No matter how much they cost, you should choose a place to go.


The resort area is a few minutes’ walk from Xinbeitou MRT station. Within the Beitou Park are the Beitou Hot Spring Museum and public hot springs. The park is bordered to the north by Zhongshan Rd, where you’ll find the Ketagalan Culture Centre and the route towards the Di-re Valley(地熱谷), the source of the many resorts’ hot springs. During the Taiwan Hot Spring & Fine Cuisine Carnival (台灣溫泉美食嘉年華) in October, Beitou’s resorts provide particular packages.


Whispering Pine Inn: More than 80 years old, this Japanese-style inn is a registered historic landmark but it’s closed until 2014/10/31.
SweetMeHot Spring Resort (水美溫泉會館, 224 Guangming Rd, Beitou; 台北市北投區光明路224): Across from Beitou Park and a walk from Xinbeitou MRT station, the SweetMe has a weird name but beautiful facilities. It opened in 2003 as the latest incarnation of an older resort. There are indoor and outdoor baths, extensive spa and dining facilities and Japanese touches all over. Even standard guest rooms have beautiful bathtubs.
Shan-YueHotspring Hotel(山樂溫泉,No.17, Quanyuan Rd, Beitou Distri; 台北市北投區泉源路17): For travelers who want to take in the sights and sounds of Taipei, Shan-Yue Hotspring Hotel is the perfect choice. This modern hotel is in the vicinity of popular city attractions such as Beitou Park, Beitou Hot Springs Museum, and Taipei Children's Art Museum. At Shan-Yue Hotspring Hotel, every effort is made to make guests feel comfortable. While lodging at this wonderful property, guests can enjoy elevator, car park, valet parking, free Wi-Fi in all rooms, coffee shop. Many rooms even provide desk, hair dryer, complimentary bottled water, air conditioning, refrigerator to please the most discerning guest. The hotel's sauna, hot spring bath, steam room, garden are ideal places to relax and unwind after a busy day.

Top 10 Small Tourist Towns in Taiwan - Dajia District

"蔣公路" by Fcuk1203 - Own work. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons.

Dajia District (Chinese: 大甲區) is a coastal suburban district in Taichung, Taiwan. It is located on the northwestern corner of Taichung. In March 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Touist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan.
Dajia Mazu Sightseeing Cultural Festival, Taichung A religious and pompous event – Dajia Mazu border-tour of incense-offering
In the spring of Taiwan, amidst blossoming natural flowers, every locality is stirred for the event of welcoming and receiving Mazu. Mazu, being long stalled adored in the temple, is being shouldered by worshippers to view the spring for blessing. Everyone with religious sentiment happily participates in the event of the joyful god-welcoming competitions.
Among these events to welcome Mazu, held in every locality, is the border-tour of incense-offering of “Dajia, Taichung Mazu Sightseeing Cultural Festival.” The tour would travel across the city and village of the former Taichung County (now part of Taichung City), Changhwa County, Yuanlin County, and Chiayi county and is considered to be one of the major events of Taiwan’s religious community. As a whole, the tour would march a distance on foot of 330 kilometers, and lasts over 7 days and 8 nights, passing by more than eighty participating temples. During the border-tour of incense-offering, both the traditional folk arts as well as new-generation artistic performance of Taiwan join in the tour for joy, attracting a great deal of attention.
As the worshippers travel through the county and city with the faith of Mazu, they build up friendships with people along the way. During the 7-day and 8-night tour of incense-offering, there are joyful and exciting events and religious prayer as well as concentrated and ascetic sentiments – a co-existence of the heavenly and temporary, while artistic performances of the ancient, contemporary, local, or overseas are staged within the same context of space and time. As a result, the intermingled moments of religious faith and an exhilarating joyful atmosphere have confirmed the religious faith of the people of Taiwan.

In recent years, the festival is increasingly attracting the growing number of Mazu worshippers in mainland China - in 2010 there were more than 2,000 mainland followers from about 40 Mazu temples. President Ma Ying-jeou also attended.

Top 10 Small Tourist Towns in Taiwan - Daxi Township

Daxi Township (Chinese: 大溪; also seen as "Tahsi"), is an urban township in eastern Taoyuan County of Taiwan. In March 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan. Daxi is known for its dried tofu (大溪豆干), a popular ingredient in Taiwanese cuisine. I very like 老阿伯豆干(No.37, Zhongzheng Rd., Daxi Township,桃園縣大溪鎮中正路37號). You should taste them. Daxi is also home to the mausoleums of two Kuomintang leaders: the late president Chiang Kai-shek in nearby Cihu and his son Chiang Ching-kuo in Touliao. Back Cihu has no military use anymore, because of the Taoyuan County government's efforts to open the area to the public. There ' s a fine view of the lake.

Daxi Old Street which is comprised of old stores on Heping Road, Zhongshan Road and Zhongyang Road is well-known throughout the country. Daxi Old Street is filled with diverse stores with the façade designed in a Baroque style that is a perfect blend of the East and West. In the past, the architect would cover and hide their work before completing as they were afraid that their original design would be plagiarized by others.
Daxi Old Street is crowded by both local and oversea visitors each day for the rich cultural and traditional style architectures, as well as a wide array of Daxi specialties, such as firm tofu that are made into many flavors, old-time flavor tofu pudding that can dry one’s thirst, and peanut caramel candy that are handmade. There are also a number of stores selling traditional folklore toys and goods that children may learn the life of people back in old days and for the adults to refresh their childhood memories.

For most travelers I think you can take Taiwan Tourist Shuttle bus from Taoyuan Zhongli Bus Station to Daxi Old Street. You can also visit Shimen Prairie , Daxi Mausoleum and other scenic spots. But if you only want to visit Daxi Old Street, I suggest you take Taoyuan Bus #5098(桃園客運) from the back of Zhongli Railway Station (中壢後火車站) to Daxi (大溪). Of course you can take the bus from the stop near my home and I will help you. Sometimes riding to Daxi on the scotter on holidays is very convenient because of the traffic jam.  
If you are from Taipei, Lonely Planet Taiwan7th Edition was written:

Getting There & Around

To begin your journey by bus, you need to get to Daxi (大溪; Dàx ) first. Take the MRT to Ximen Station and take exit 2. Walk south to Guiyang St and turn left. Cross the road and just past Yanping Rd wait at the
bus stop in front of Soochow University. Catch the Taipei–Daxi bus #9103 (NT124, one hour, head way timetable) to the Taoyuan Bus Company (桃園客運; 03-388 2002) station in Daxi. This is the last stop.
From here you can catch buses as far as Xiao Wulai, but be warned that there are fewer and fewer buses running these routes, so it’s best to call the Taoyuan Bus Company to confirm the schedule. It’s so much better to have your own vehicle. Consider renting a car in Taipei or Zhongli.
There are also Bed and Breakfast like 維多莉雅民宿 but I think you'd better to know Chinese then you can book the room.
