Transcript of Taiwan
The National Palace Museum in Taipei City is one of the most famous museums in the world alongside the Louvre and the Smithsonian. During the Japanese invasion,
the Nationalists saved many treasures of ancient China from being destroyed and brought them to Taiwan. Some of the most famous artifacts include the Jadeite Cabbage With Insects~ Jade carved into a bok choy cabbage shape complete with a grasshopper, the Meat-Shaped Stone~ a curious little piece of Jade carved in a quite natural looking way to represent a piece of meat, and, my personal favorite, the Carved Olive-stone Boat~ a carving of a Chinese boat made from a single olive pit.

Bubble Tea's origin is debated upon quite often, but it is generally accepted to have been invented in T'aichung by a woman named Liu Hsui Hui in 1988. Liu Han-Chieh was the
first to come up with serving tea cold,and
his manager, Liu Hsui Hui, added her
tapioca ball dessert into the tea, creating
the first bubble tea. This was in the Chun
Shu Tang teahouse in T'aichung, Taiwan.

Taiwan's Independence Day
October 10 is Taiwan's Independence day. In Chinese, we call it shuang shi jie, literally meaning double ten festival (10/10->double 10). The date was set to commemorate the WuChang uprising, a revolt that led to a declaration of independence from the central government by Wuchang and several other provinces in China in 1911. The uprising led to the XinHai Revolution that ended the Qin Dynasty, the last dynasty, and then eventually establishing the ROC. At that point, Taiwan had total control over what is now mainland China.
That was lost to the Chinese Communist Party
