Taiwan Lantern Festival 2019 Experience! (Photo Essay)

Taiwan Lantern Festival

Welcome to the 2019 Taiwan Lantern Festival! Be amazed by larger-than-life lantern displays, by thousands of visually spectacular lantern creations over more than 38 hectares of land and 200 hectares of water.

Every year, the Taiwan International Lantern Festival rotates among different hosting cities within the country, with this year’s festival being held in Pingtung County, Southern Taiwan. This notable year marks the 30th anniversary of the annual celebration with thousands of crowds gathering to see the fireworks ceremony and stunning light-up creations open to the public from February 19-March 3, 2019 for free.

To make things a little different, the local government chose the “Giant Tuna“—a symbol of wealth and the leading produce of Ping Tung—as the main lantern, breaking the norm of using the Chinese zodiac as the theme image, although the pig will still be a prevalent lantern motif throughout the festival.

Here’s what you can expect…

NINYO Fusion Cuisine & Wine Lounge: Quezon City’s Most Romantic Restaurant!

Ninyo

Ninyo has long been part of my list for the most romantic restaurants in the city. What started as Manila’s Best Kept Secret, the humble ancestral house of Chef Nins Laus, is transformed into this quiet and intimate hidden paradise with its garden-like charm. From the moment you step in, you’re already greeted by the candle lights, beautiful pavilions, hanging vines, koi ponds, and antique accents in the interior.  —which unfailingly keeps taking the breaths of many lovers.

ninyo2

Aside from the gorgeous ambiance, it’s also a foodie destination for good food, with Chef Nins’ creative take of European-Asian fusion dishes. Note that Ninyo always updates its menu so its degustation is always a good idea. A set menu is a great option, easier than choosing from a wide array of food.
