    Hi! :D

    Wow, you got NJO over there? [face_shocked] I went to fnac a few times earlier this year, when I went back during the holidays, and all I see is LOTR and Harry Potter stuff. :mad: Or maybe I didn't look hard enough.

    I lived in Taiwan for ten years, between Taipei and Kaushong. I'll consider myself Chinese first, but let's not get into politics. :)

    Hi!

    First time in this forum (I usually go to Lit. and EUC forums.) I am a native Taiwanese and I live in Taipei.

    Maybe you already knew this, but we usually discuss local SW stuffs in [link=http://starwars.alittleboy.com]Star Wars Chinese Net[/link], a Chinese fan site, and bulletin bord systems. I am using the screen name Luke in both places :p

    Hah, yes, I've actually visited that site a few times in the past. I remember them having good TPM wallpapers; and I like the touch of Across The Stars when you go there right now, even though I mostly hate sites which give me music before I can do anything. I remember the boards being quite slow, and umm, not too familiar with Star Wars. I guess that's not too surprising, I mean, any one of Miyazagi's animated films probably cause more of a stir than Star Wars. I like the site though, it provides a lot of great information for those who can't read and write English well.

    Did anyone on that board do anything together? That would be quite special, true fans gathering instead of just letting the media hype it.

    bright sith, as a matter of fact, we are going to have a gathering this weekend in Taipei. There will be more than twenty fans join us. And our host might try his hand on the courses introduced in the Star Wars Cookbook :D

    The music is basically the site owner's idea. Of all aspects of Star Wars, he likes the music most :)

    There are not too many Star Wars events in Taiwan, other than that Toy premiere press conference, so most news are translated from U.S. fan sites such as TF.N. But you can find the full LFL released news letter there now.

    And you can find novel reviews and cover galleries I compliered there [face_blush]
