    TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Chinese names of the filmmaker Chi Po-lin (齊柏林) and his award-winning documentary "Beyond Beauty: Taiwan from Above" (看見台灣) were displayed on the Taipei 101 Tower on Sunday, June 11, as Taiwan marked the passing the filmmaker who died in a helicopter crash in Hualien on Saturday.

    Chi gave up many things to pursue his dream of documenting Taiwan through aerial photography.

    Maria Yoon got married for the 53rd time in a simulated ghost marriage at Yunshan Temple in New Taipei City’s Sijhih District

    Korean-American performance artist Maria Yoon who married 52 men in 50 states and two of its territories in America got married again on Saturday at Yunshan Temple (雲山巖) in New Taipei City’s Sijhih District (汐止), with the groom being Howard Chen (陳豪爾), an affluent Taiwanese man who died in June 2001.

    I know it's kind of an odd thing to celebrate the Fourth of July while in Taiwan, but Americans can't help but to feel a twinge of FOMO when seeing all our friends firing up their grills for Independence Day backyard bbqs. So I put together a short list of places you can go for smoky charred ribs, brisket, BBQ pork and all the sides.  Mac and cheese, cornbread, coleslaw, baked potato or baked beans. I was going to add some Japanese yakiniku and Kbbq for extra meat grilling action, but I decided to save that for another day.
