Pros:

  • Cheap.
  • Fast shipping (within Taiwan). It only took three days to arrive.
  • Good for personal use.
  • Has enough torque to disassemble CVT assembly (clutch and variator). Please watch the video below for proof.
  • Has enough battery storage.

Cons:

I like this product. I’m happy and contented that it easily met what I was expecting for it to perform. It really can do the job that it is designed for. The scooter that is featured in the video is Kymco Jockey V2 (2011).


Conclusion:

I highly recommend this product to DIYers like me. It will surely not disappoint you. This can also serve as a screwdriver/drill. I ordered the one with accessories. A battery and a charger are also included.


NICOH Air Fryer Quick (and honest) Review

Pros

  • Japanese Brand. Siyempre, kapag Japanese brand, malamang ay matibay.
  • Compact
  • Easy to clean/wash
  • Easy to store
  • Affordable (link on Shopee where I purchased)
  • Great for personal use.
  • Already tried with lechon kawali, fried chicken, shrimps, fish, etc.
  • Maganda ang luto hanggang sa loob.
  • Convection type. Para siyang mini Turbo Broiler.

For Size Comparison

 

Cons

  • Medium power
  • 110 volts. Medyo hindi convenient na gamitin sa Pinas.
  • Pang isahang tao lang. Small capacity.
  • Medyo maingay during operation. Ang sound niya ay parang sa electric fan na nasa number 3.

Conclusion:

Maganda siya para sa mga taong may high cholesterol levels, dahil nakakaluto siya kahit walang oil. Gusto ko siya. Maganda at cute. Pang-isahang tao nga lang, kasi di kalakihan ang container niya. Pero worth it. Sulit na sulit ang pera mo dito. Japanese brand pa. Almost two months ko na siyang ginagamit at okay na okay siya. Big thumbs up para sa Nicoh air Fryer!

Paano Kumuha ng Driver’s License sa Taiwan?

Paano Kumuha ng Driver’s License sa Taiwan?

Driver’s License sa Taiwan. Mayroong dalawang klase or procedures ang  maaring gawin ukol sa pagkuha ng lesensiya sa Taiwan. Ilalahad sa post na ito ang pagkuha ng driver’s license para sa mga gustong magmaneho ng motorsiklo.

A) Kung mayroong valid driver’s license(not expired) kang hawak, na galing sa Pilipinas, ay maaari mo itong dalhin sa MECO upang maipa-authenticate. Dapat din siyang mai-translate sa wikang Taiwanese upang ma-consider na valid. For more details about this process,  please ask MECO directly. For assistance, please ask Ma’am Mei-Mei Chen. Di ko po siya personal na kakilala, pero nakikita ko sa mga posts niya ang mga natutulungan niyang mga Pilipino patungkol sa process na ito.

B) Pangalawang procedure. Ibabahagi ko ito sa inyo dahil sa personal ko itong naranasan. Take the license exam (at actual driving test) mismo sa Motor Vehicles Office o ang katumbas ng LTO natin sa Pilipinas.

Ang Motor Vehicle Office sa Taoyuan. May kalayuan po ito sa mismong Taoyuan Train Station, kaya I recommend using YouBike or take this route: ↓↓↓

Bus route from Taoyuan Bus Station to Motor Vehicles Office, Taoyuan.

 

  1. Here is the address: Taoyuan Station, Hsinchu Motor Vehicles Office

    新竹區監理所 桃園監理站

    No. 416號, Jieshou Road, Taoyuan District, Taoyuan City, 330

 

Steps sa Pagkuha ng Driving License sa Taiwan

  1. I-ready ang ARC(more than 6 months bago mag-expire) at 2 pieces colored 1×1 pictures. Kung wala kayong dalang pictures ay puwede namang kumuha ng larawan sa photo booth na nasa loob mismo ng medical facility. 150 NT ang bayad para sa pictures.
  2. Medical fee- 150.00 NT (mga accredited private medical facilities po ang mga ito na nasa labas ng Motor Vehicle Office).

    Actually, marami po sila at magkakatabi, pero I highly recommend this facility. Nasa gilid siya ng licensing office. Mababait ang mga staff dito at sila na mismo ang magfi-fill up sa form na kakailanganin. Mabilis lang ang processing sa stage na ito.

     

  3. Application/Registration Fee- 250 NT (sa third floor po, kung sa Taoyuan po kayo kukuha).

    Diyan po kayo pipila.Nasa third floor po iyang Registration Services Counter. Ang unang itatanong is kung may appointment ba kayo. Kaya huwag kalilimutang magpa-schedule ng appointment(nasa link po sa ibaba).

     

     


     

  4. Kailangan ninyong umattend ng seminar pagkatapos mag register. Aabot po ito ng more or less two hours. Ito ay composed of videos at instructions(more on Chinese) tungkol sa vehicular accidents at kung papaanong ang mga ito ay maiiwasan.

    Driving Course/ Seminar Room

     

  5. Pagkatapos ng seminar ay puwede nang mag proceed for the written test. Aabot ito ng 45 minutes. No cheating at no coaching. Video-monitored ang process during exam. Mabigat ang consequences kapag nahuli kang nag che-cheat. NO CELLPHONES are allowed in the examination room.

    The Written Test room.

    Important instructions regarding the written test.

     

  6. Makikita na kaagad ang resulta kapag pinindot ang submit button at tatawagin na agad ang inyong pangalan ng invigilator o ng tagabantay.
  7. Kapag nakapasa kayo ay bumalik kayo kaagad sa registration counter(kung saan kayo nag-register). Then, magbabayad kayo ng 21 NT, kung wala kayong dalang sariling motor. Ang 21 NT ay renta para sa motor at helmet na ipapahiram sa inyo. Pagkatapos nito ay puwede na kayong mag-proceed sa first floor kung saan ginaganap ang actual driving tests for motorcycles. Click this video upang magkaroon kayo ng idea sa driving test. I suggest you to bring your own helmet. Kahit hindi full-face type, okay lang. Pero kung wala kayong dalang helmet ay okay lang din, dahil may maipapahiram naman sila sa inyo.
  8. Kapag pumasa kayo sa stage na ito ay ibabalik ang inyong ARC at pababalikin uli kayo sa 3rd floor, kung saan kayo unang nag register, dahil dito na ninyo kukunin ang inyong Taiwan Driver’s License.
  9. Tatanungin dito ang inyong contact number at ive-verify ang inyong present address. Hihingi rin sila ng isang 1×1 colored picture for your driver’s license. May babayaran uli kayo dito na 200 NT.

GOOD LUCK!

DRIVE SAFELY!

READ THE REVIEWER AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN!


 

Notes:

Agahan po ninyo ang magpunta, dahil mayroon pong pila. Weekdays @8 am po sila nagbubukas.

Hindi po basta-basta ang written test. Review hard bago sumabak! Sa totoo lang ay halos one week akong nagbasa at nag-aral para sa test na ito. NAPAKARAMI pong mga sagot ang lalabas sa mismong test na makikita ninyo na sa MISMONG REVIEWER, kaya importanteng tandaan na po ninyo ang mga sagot.

Kung hindi po kayo papasa sa alin mang tests ay puwede kayong mag-re-take pagkatapos ng pitong araw. Ang written test naman kapag naipasa ninyo ay valid ng isang taon.

Di tulad sa atin sa Pilipinas ay hindi na rin kinakailangang i-renew pa ang inyong license taon-taon kapag kayo’y nakapasa, dahil valid ito ng hanggang anim na taon. You should also make an appointment para po kayo ay aasikasuhin. Paki-click ang links for the reviewer at para sa appointment. Here’s the reviewer for desktop PC/Windows.

Ang mga questions na mababasa ninyo diyan sa APP ay actual na mae-encounter po ninyo during the written test. Kaya tandaan na po ninyo ang lahat ng kaya ninyong tandaan. Ganoon din po sa reviewer for Windows.

  • Kailangan po bang humingi ng pahintulot sa employer o sa company namin kung gusto kong magka-motor?

This is according to our coordinator, noong tinanong ko po siya ng ganiyan, “You have complete free will, as long as you have a license to drive”. Nasa sa inyo  na po kung ipapaalam ninyo. Kung  bibili kayo ng motor sa isang shop ay required pong ipaalam ninyo sa inyong employer, dahil hahanapan kayo ng shop owner ng form of consent(from your company).

  • Expired na po ang license ko na galing Pinas. Puwede pa po ba?

Back to zero. Wala po kayong ibang choice but to take the exam sa Motor Vehicle Office.

  • May Student Permit License po ako from Pinas. Puwede ba iyon?

Hindi po valid iyon.

50 items times 2. The passing grade is 86. Kaya kapag namali ka ng 8 points or above, ay bagsak ka na po, at babalik ka na lang after 7 days para mag-exam uli.

  • Required po ba talaga ang Mandatory Liability Insurance?

Yes po. Kailangang-kailangan po iyan ayon sa Taiwan Law. Palagi pong binabanggit yan sa reviewer.

  • Kailangan ba talagang mag-review?

Siyempre po. Napakarami po kayong malalaman sa reviewer tungkol sa mga batas ng Taiwan regarding sa wastong pagmamaneho ng sasakyan.

  • Naka-encounter ba kayo ng new questions during the exam?

Yes po. May limang questions akong na-encounter na wala po sa mismong reviewer.


  • May expiration po ba ang driver’s license sa Taiwan?

Mayroon po. Six years from the date of issue.


  • Kapag may valid license na galing Pinas, kailangan pa bang mag take ng written exam?

Hindi na po.

  • Required po ba ang emission test?

Yes po at may multa kapag walang nakitang sticker sa inyong motor. Magtanong po kayo sa mga shop(like Yamaha). Libre po iyon at isinasagawa once a year at depende po kung aling buwan po naka-schedule ang inyong motor. Don’t forget to ask for a sticker after the emission test.

sample emission sticker

  • Puwede po ba mag-exam kahit walang appointment?

Not 100% sure, pero nasubukan na po ng iba(kabilang ako doon) at pinayagan naman sila. I-try ninyo lang po.

  • Puwede po bang gamitin ang name ng Taiwanese(for registration purposes) na pinagbilhan ng motor?

Yes po. depende na lang sa inyong usapan.

Tips: 

  1. Review. Review. Review. Ito ang sekreto upang pumasa. Madali lang ang exam kapag ikaw ay nag-REVIEW!
  2. Bago ka sumabak sa actual driving test ay magmasid-masid ka muna. Sa totoo lang ay, failed ako sa first attempt, dahil sa sumabak ako kaagad dahil sa excited ako. Pero on the second attempt(bumalik ako after 7 days), ay nag-observe muna ako at tinandaan ko ang mga mistakes ng mga nauna sa akin. Isinaulo ko na rin ang mga steps, gaya ng left turn, right turn, paglingon-lingon(very important) at sa wakas ay nakapasa ako.
  3. RADARBOT– Android app na ginagamit ko upang makaiwas sa multa due to overspeeding.

Shifen Waterfalls & Pingxi Sky Lantern

Shifen

Mayroong dalawang pangunahing attractions na pumapasok sa ating isipan tuwing naririnig natin ang lugar na Shifen (十分 Shífēn). Waterfalls at Sky Lanterns. Mukha bang pamilyar? Nagawi ka na ba sa mga lugar na ito?


Pingxi Sky Lanterns

sky lantern (天燈; tiāndēng), also known as Kongming lantern or Chinese lantern, is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. – Wikipedia

 


Sky Lanterns @ Shifen Old Street

Alam mo bang ang pagpapalipad ng mga sky lanterns sa iba pang mga bansa ay ipinagbabawal na? Sanhi ito ng mga insidente ng pagkasunog na nagiging dulot ng maling paggamit o pagpapalipad ng mga ito sa himpapawid.

Galing ang konseptong ito buhat pa sa sinaunang China (3rd century BCE), at ginagamit bilang signal(sa digmaan), ginagawang laruan o sa kanilang mga selebrasyon. Sa kasalukuyan, ay mayroon pa ring mga bansa na pinahihintulutan ang paggamit nito. Kabilang dito ang mga bansang China, India, Japan, Portugal, Brazil, Thailand, at syempre ay ang bansang Taiwan.

Shifen Old Street. Ito ang lugar kung saan matatagpuan ang maraming turista na galing pa sa iba’t-ibang panig ng mundo. Kalimitang makikita dito ang mga manlalakbay na galing pa sa Pilipinas, Korea, Japan, India, US, at Indonesia. Dito rin ginaganap taon-taon ang tinatawag na Sky Lantern Festival.


…sky lanterns are released into the night sky with people’s wishes written, to send the wishes and messages to God. – Wikipedia


Color coded. Narito ang chart o guide kung saan ay may mga kaakibat na kulay ang bawat wish na gusto ninyong isulat sa  mismong lantern. – credits to Wikipedia


 

What to expect:

  • Palaging umaambon dito, lalo na sa winter. Don’t worry, may mga nabibili namang raincoats sa old street.
  • Sky Lanterns’ price range: 150 – 500 NTD.
  • Walang entrance fee ang Shifen Waterfall.
  • Opening hours of Shifen Falls ay 09:00 -16:30.
  • Maraming kainan dito at reasonable ang prices.
  • Maraming tourists dito at halos all-year-round.
  • Download the Taiwan Railway Timetable app. Makakatulong ito sa pag-monitor sa schedule ng train sa Pingxi Line.

Shifen Waterfalls

Ang Shifen Waterfalls at Shifen Old Street ay halos magkalapit lamang. Kaya’t ang mga turista ay nagpupunta sa falls na ito pagkatapos nilang magpalipad ng lanterns. Aabot ng humigit kumulang sa 20 minutes, kung lalakarin mula sa old street hanggang sa falls. Sundan lang ang riles at mga kratula at tiyak na kayo’y makakarating sa Shifen falls.

Emerald cool waters and a dazzling view of the mountains. That is what you are going to expect at this natural river resort. Grilling is allowed and you can bring your own food and drinks. Drinking alcohol is also allowed, that even the resident store also sells these. Just remember to drink in moderation.

Please note that the goods here are a bit expensive though, so I recommend just to bring your own.

We came to this beautiful place through biking. One of our fellow cyclists suggested this spot.

Have fun! Enjoy!

Baishawan Beach 白沙灣 Báishā wān

Baishawan Beach 白沙灣 Báishā wān

Baishawan Beach.

Ang Baishawan beach ay matatagpuan sa hilaga ng Taipei City, at halos kalapit lang ng Tamsui (淡水, Danshui). Mapapansin sa video na nasa bandang ibaba, na ang kulay ng buhangin ay dark brown. Sanhi ito ng kakatapos lang na ulan sa lugar. Ang tunay na kulay nito ay maihahalintulad sa tinatawag na dirty white.

Pinong-pino ang buhangin dito. Kilala ang beach na ito sa larangan ng surfing dahil sa mga hindi pangkaraniwang alon nito at malalakas na hangin, na kagaya ng nasa Qiding Beach sa Zhunan.

Mapapansin sa video ang mga lubid na nasa dagat. Ito ang mga nagsisilbing indicators  na ang mga naliligo ay nasa safe zone. Mayroon ding mga nakatalagang lifeguards na patuloy na naka-antabay, kung sakaling may magaganap na mga pangyayaring hindi inaasahan, kagaya ng pagkalunod. Napansin kong alerto sila, dahil agad nilang pinupuna(pagsipol gamit ang pito)ang mga lumalampas sa linya. Maliban lang sa mga surfers na may dala-dalang surfboards.

Hindi bawal ang magpalipad ng drone dito, ngunit mag-ingat dahil sa bandang tanghali ay marami na ang tao sa lugar na ito. May mga tindahan at kainan sa bungad ng beach. Mayroon ding parking lots at  mga banlawan, ngunit hindi libre. 20NT ang bayad para sa mga gustong magbanlaw. 10NT naman sa mga gustong maghugas lang ng mga paa.

Ang presyo ng white/red na shed ay 1,500 NT, samantalang ang maliit na puti ay 300 NT per shed. Puwede nang gamitin sa buong araw. Puwedeng magdala at maglatag ng sariling tent ang sinuman.

Bade Bald Cypress Forest, Taoyuan (八德落羽松森林) 

Ang Ipinagkaiba ng White and Blue Collar Jobs sa Taiwan.

Heto po ay para sa mga gustong magtrabaho sa Taiwan,nang may idea po kayo.

Sa Taiwan ay dalawa ang labor class, blue at white collar or yung eco visa.

Blue collars ay sila yung 3 years and below or 6 semesters and less. Salary is 22K NTS at least, plus overtime pay if meron. Maximum of 12 years lang or 4x contract, then uuwi na kayo for good. Blue collars also pay monthly, for 3 consecutive years(usual contract = 3 years) to his/her Broker in Taiwan: 1, 800 NTS monthly on 1st year, 1700 NTS for 2nd yr and 1600 NTS for 3rd/ last year. May kaltas din na 8% tax, but reimbursible kung di ka magbe-break contract. Kapag nag break contract ka before 183 days, mapepenalize ka sa tax ng 18%, kaya may babayaran ka bago ka umuwi. May medical insurance din na kaltas pero maliit lang. The good thing in Taiwan healthcare is napakaganda, kung maooperahan ka sa kahit saang parte ng katawan ay, wala pa sa 8K NT ang babayaran mo kasama na pati gamot. Ang Out patient naman ay 150 NT ang lang bayad kasama na rin gamot. Swuerte kapag sagot ng company ang food and accomodation, otherwise sariling gastos mo ang mga iyan. Kaya during the INTERVIEW, itanong ninyo ito sa inyong employer.

White collar or eco visa, itong class of worker na 4 and 5 years course. Considered din dito yung 3 year
/tri-sem technology course. Walang limit ang contract, hanggat gusto mo or gusto pa ng employer mo. Pwede ka ring maging permanent resident depende sa iyo. Di tulad ng blue collar, ang white collar ay di nagbabayad ng broker’s fee at meron ding OT kung sakali. Pareho din ng kaltas ng tax at healthcare ng Blue collar. Kadalasan ay free ang food and accomodation pero mas maganda na itanong during the interview.

I hope na maliwanagan kayo kung sakali mang swertehin kayong makapagtrabaho sa Taiwan.
