Holy Family Catholic Church and Taipei 101

Catholic church

I went to a Catholic church with my girlfriend on Sunday. The atmosphere of mess is different from Poland. Everything looks like very friendly and not so serious.

I also noticed that the Asia people are more devout than Europeans. When they came back after communion they already kept their hands together for prayer.

Unfortunately, the priest is not from the USA or England and his speech is very difficult to understanding.

I noticed a strange thing. After the Mass, everyone will speak his nationality if he/she comes in the first time. One an American said that he is from the Alaska, USA. It is very weird for us, Europeans because we do not speak of location so detail. However, maybe Europeans will speak such in the feature: "I am from Europe Union, Poland".

If someone want to go to English Mass, it is at 10 am on Sunday. The church is located on the opposite of the biggest park, Daan Park, in Taipei. The address is 50 Hsinsheng S. Rd., Sect. 2, Taipei.

Later we went to a mosque. I was surprised to see a sign with forbidden things. The punishment could be send to the police station if someone break rules.

Competition from Protestant Church

Catholic Church has a significant competition from Protestant churches in Taiwan. I saw even more Protestant churches than Catholic churches. Every month, protestant missionary press the bell of our door and ask: "Can we tell you about Bible?" Once a time, my girlfriend told them: "No, thank you. We are Catholic. Are you interested in Catholic?"

Short history

The ambassador of R.O.C. of the Holy See has presented the only constant diplomatic connection between China and that Holy See.

Efforts to shift the Papal nuncio to Beijing has failed. The Holy See has not admitted demands by the People's Republic of China to stop relation with ROC.

One characteristic of Catholicism in Taiwan lies on its ties with practices of Shamanism. These Shamanic habits, named Wushu 巫術 in Chinese, are different according to culture and region.

Taipei 101

Before I come back to Poland last year, I went to Taipei 101. The charge of the ticket is 400 TWD, and it is very high of the charge. I have to admit that I was impressed by the speed of the high-speed elevator. The speed amount to 60.6 kilometres per hour. The people will be on the top of the building (391.8 m) after 2 minutes.

The view from the skyscraper is very nice but nothing more. More attractive of me is very expensive restaurant and shops. The cheapest price of the restaurant which I found is 1 000 TWD per person.

The Taipei 101 comprises 101 floors above ground and 5 floors underground. The skyscraper is high 508 m. It was the first building on the world which amount 500 meters.

The Taiwanese is proud of the Taipei 101. There is a floor for VIP on the top of the Tower. Unfortunately, I was not there.

In the second "underground" floor, there is a huge food court. Unfortunately, it is always full. Nonetheless, there is very good tea shop. I like drink tea from this place.

Around Taipei 101

There is a shopping mall Around Taipei 101. It is a common spot for artists. One can listen music, look at acrobats which are amazing.

A beautiful hostess in a sexy outfit is trying to stop passerby and sell out something them. Predominantly, it is mobile phones from HTC or Samsung. They make sometimes promotion and give something for free. The man has no problem to get it as opposed to girl. For example, my girlfriend had to insure three times that she did not take earlier. The men have not this problem.

One a time I was in a large bookstore which is open 24 hours. I have to admit that Taiwanese read a lot, and there was a lot of people.

Everybody can watch a movie in cinema. There is also a lot of court food. I counted at least 3. I do not recommend eat Ramen because it is very salty.

I recommend drinking a bubble tea from a shop called CoCo. It tastes very good. There is always a long queue of people waiting to get the beverage. The shop also sales very good, cold, melting in the mouth herb jelly. Second, herb jelly is more healthy than bubble tea.
