    Taipei, Taiwan's Bustling Lunar(Chinese)New Year Shopping Center-Dihua Street

    in Travel

     


    Dihua Street or Grocery Street is where many residents of Taipei, Taiwan head to for stocking up on food, snacks and treats for the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year. I recently visited the famous shopping market just two days before New Year’s Eve. I was there to shop, sample food, indeed why many people pay a visit and talk to some Taiwanese about why they enjoy Lunar New Year.


    Dihua market, for most of the year is Dihua Street-a center in Taipei for traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, fabrics, incense, and Taiwanese tea processing. First constructed in 1850, it’s original name was Center Street.


    This is the busiest time of year for Dihua street, with extra food stalls and vendors using all kinds of tactics to get your attention. Most of which are pretty friendly.


    Sampling is big here and many people come just to load up on the freebies. If you’re new to the food of Taiwan it’s a great place to learn about some of the traditional snacks and newer items with ingredients that can range from peanuts to dried fish.


    It’s Taiwan, so of course there’s always someone cooking food around the corner.


    The southern portion of Dihua is the oldest street in Taipei, dating back to Dutch rule from 1624-1661.


    In Taiwan many markets were built around temples and Dihua is no exception with worshippers getting in their last wishes for the year, or perhaps a good start to the new year.

    New Hampshire now up!

    in Politics

    Good evening, tomorrow morning on The Meter we will cover the upcoming primary in New Hampshire. In the Republican 7 field, Businessman Donald Trump has a sizable lead and Berine Sanders leads Hillary Clinton by a wide margin in the 2 person democrat contest. Both parties held their respective debates this week in the lead up to the nations first primary. Wall Street was highlighted amongst the democrats as Sanders hammered Clinton on her ties to Goldman Sachs. Clinton claims she is the true progressive while Sanders says that title belongs to him. Who do you think is the top Progressive? The Republican 7 had their fair share of fireworks as Christie says Rubio is too inexperienced to be Commander and Chief and Carson critized Cruz for "dirty tricks" in Iowa. Tortue made its way into the Republican 7 as Cruz said waterboarding isn't torture while Trump says he'll "bring back a hell of a lot worse that waterboarding". In other news Barack Obama paired a visit to a mosque in Baltimore admits controversy as that mosque has known ties to terrorism. Was this a smart move by the president? Please join us at 9:00 AM. The call in number is 347-308-8933. Your input is essential. www.blogtalkradio.com/themete

"Hold On", "Yaweh" and "What turns you on" Her first album project "Circular Soul" was a midwest compilation album of artist in which she wrote a song "Picture That" which would later become on the the songs added to her first album Project "Relations 1". Not only did this album sell out, but it also got her, her first licensing deal in the UK with a label called "Street Cultrue Records". This would not be Nichelle's only deal in the UK, which is where her biggest fan base seems to be. Her Sophomore Project, "Millenaire", which is still available on i-tunes as well as the internet and some stores got her another deal with a label called, "Cafedesoul Records". Cafedesoul decided to take a few songs from her first and second album and call it "Language of Love" which is also available on the web. This brings us up to the present.  this singer/songwriter is working on her 4th Album called "Soulfully Yours, Nichelle" 


    Nichelle has sung on numerous projects. One in particular , "A Call to Courage," received national recognition when Darron McKinney (soprano saxophone) and Nichelle Colvin performed the composition at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Candlelight Vigil held in Washington, DC May of 2001. There, the two artists mesmerized 18,000 law enforcement officers and the families and friends of America's fallen law officers. Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Sen. Trent Lott were among the attending.
