With an estimated 70 per cent of Taiwanese receiving cable and an equal number listing television as their main past time, the cable market is a lucrative one. But competition is increasingly fierce. With the possibility that foreign satellite companies could soon join the fray, programmers are for the first time having to respond to viewers' demands. Walk down any street in Taipei and you can't fail to miss the mass of wires strung across the buildings overhead. Around 70 per cent of the Taiwanese have cable beamed into their homes, with an equal number listing television as their favourite pastime. It's a hugely profitab...

Also lovingly labelled the "Eyes of Maokong Gondola", these cabins have a separate queue and ticket price.

Infinite life” is a 3.6-meter-tall sculpture in front of the Taipei 101 building. It was created by local sculptor Kang Mu-xiang, who made the work from discarded elevator cables. He found a creative and ingenious way to bring new life to materials that would be otherwise have been discarded as scrap. Follow our report as we learn more about this artist and his extraordinary gift for creating art from non-traditional materials in an uplifting and inspiring way. Taipei 101 is the world’s fifth-tallest building. In front of it sits the public artwork ‘Infinite Life”. Each day the artwork attracts visitors, who draw near so they can take in its metal aura. This work was created by white-haired local sculptor Kang Mu-xiang.Kang Mu-xiang SculptorI am very moved because this work needs people to interact with it. It needs people to appreciate it, touch it, love it, or hold it. I once saw a pregnant woman who was standing next to one of my works from the “Life”series and I thought she was communicating with the work.Kang Mu-xiang is a native of Miaoli’s Tunghsiao where he grew up in a big family that produced traditional handicrafts. At the age of 25 he went to Miaoli’s Sanyi ,which is Taiwan’s largest woodcarving arts center, to become a wood carver. However, he soon gave this up to follow his own path.Kang Mu-xiang SculptorI was 30 years old and I wanted to give up woodcarving because I knew that my predecessors including my elder brother who were involved in traditional (wood carving) didn’t leave behind any works of value. I knew that I could not just keep copying pieces like they came from a mold. I needed to find a creative way to pursue art, as I wanted to become an artist.In 2002, Taiwan was hit by a large number of successive typhoons which knocked down thousand-year-old trees that were washed all the way down to the coast. Kang arrived at Guishan Island and was one of the first artists working with driftwood created by this disaster.Kang Mu-xiang SculptorI can only hope for what I might salvage today and what I may run into tomorrow. For example, I may find some camphor wood today and perhaps I may see cypress tomorrow.Kang lived in solitude on Guishan Island to gain inspiration for his new "Life Series," which includes a primal image of a mother holding her young infant.Later, Kang would turn to bronze and stainless steel sculpture to express the same vitality.In 2012, the world’s tallest environmental skyscraper was planning to replace the cables for its high-speed elevators, which led to a chance opportunity for Kang. Christina Sung Taipei 101 ChairwomanWe were advised to sell to the cables to a recycling center but we didn’t really feel like we wanted to part with them, so we decided to keep them and see if they might have some use later on. I happened to meet Kang Mu-xiang who is one of our tenants. He is a very passionate Taiwanese artist, and when we saw his wood carvings we asked him if he had any interest in turning these cables into artwork. When Kang first viewed the cables, he felt as if he was experiencing a dialogue between dream and reality.Kang Mu-xiang SculptorAt that time, I saw these used cables and began to think of my parents. I remember when I was a child my mother would wear a straw hat and my father would carry straw baskets on his shoulder. I hoped to turn these cables into an important work of art. Hsu Rong-chiang ArchitectIf you bend the cable it snaps back. The cable is just so stiff, so I asked him how he planned to work with it. And secondly, I asked him what he was planning to make. Kang Mu-xiang SculptorI wanted to use my strength and my methods to pull create these lines. Hsu Rong-chiang said I was crazy and this was not going to work.While Hsu was not optimistic, Kang decided to go ahead. He actively sought ways to clean the grease off the cables and as well as different ways to bend them.Hsu Rong-chiang ArchitectLater, he came to me with a poster which contained an art work that was also wound with steel cable. When I saw it I was a bit startled and then I thought, what didn’t seem possible Kang was going to make happen. Kang Mu-xiangSculptorTo support these wires, I first made an actual size model from Styrofoam and wound the cables around it. Afterwards, I melted away the Styrofoam by setting it on fire, but the sculpture had nothing to support it and became unstable. With no way to allow the work to keep its shape long-term, Kang’s effort was for all practical purposes a failure. However, the problem inspired an architect friend, Hsu Rong-chiang, who came up with a new idea. He used a computer to calculate weight-bearing points of support, and create an interior frame from pieces of stainless steel. The innovation gave the project new life. Kang Mu-xiang SculptorThe hardest part was working with these hard materials, as the cables had to be heated upwards of a thous...

Filmed on: December 14,2016 On our second day in Taiwan, we went to Taipei Zoo, Maokong and Shilin Night Market. //Taipei Zoo// It was generally a good experience. The entrance fee was cheap: 60 NTD and the zoo was really huge. There were a lot of places to visit but we didn't get to visit all of them because of time constraints. Jed really enjoyed our Taipei Zoo trip - it was his favorite part. He loved seeing the koalas and pandas. Lol. He was like a kid. //Maokong// The ride on the "Maokong Gondola" was okay. Too bad it was quite foggy during our ride. Beware of expensive tea at Maokong. We had to pay 590 NTD for our "authentic tea". Too expensive in my opinion. Make sure you clarify how much you have to pay before actually ordering. We also visited Ikea |we do not have Ikea in the Philippines| & spent a significant time there just going around and looking at different stuff. Lol. I ended up buying a hamper, office supplies and other home stuff. //Shilin Night Market// a must see when in Taipei. There were really good finds around Taipei. I actually like the night markets in Taipei more than HongKong. I find Taiwanese people are generally friendlier and more helpful & the Night Market vendors are more accomodating. Food was good too!!!!!

Man/Eng/Nat Taiwan's cable T-V industry is booming, with more than 60 channels competing for an audience share of the T-V-obsessed population. With an estimated 70 per cent of Taiwanese receiving cable and an equal number listing television as their main past time, the cable market is a lucrative one. But competition is increasingly fierce. With the possibility that foreign satellite companies could soon join the fray, programmers are for the first time having to respond to viewers' demands. Walk down any street in Taipei and you can't fail to miss the mass of wires strung across the buildings overhead. Around 70 per cent of the Taiwanese have cable beamed into their homes, with an equal number listing television as their favourite pastime. It's a hugely profitable market -- some industry insiders estimate its value at 300 (m) million U-S dollars. Years of only having three state channels have sharpened the Taiwanese appetite for change and variety. At the forefront of the revolution is cable news. TVBS is one of the new breed - launched in 1993, the news channel is on the air 19 hours a day. A focus on live reports and a willingness to cover controversial stories has helped it make large inroads into the terrestrials' audience figures. But the company's ambitions go further - like many domestic and foreign firms, it is lured by the size of the international Chinese market. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Who will be more qualified than us in this region, we are talking about something like one-point-three (b) billion Chinese, not including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia. All those people who can speak Chinese. This is going to be a great market." SUPER CAPTION: Lee Tao, General Manager TVBS Recently, cable's role in distributing information free from state controls has become particularly important . With tension rising in the run-up to Taiwan's first fully free presidential elections, campaign reports fill Taiwan's T-V sets. According to analysts, it is the audience's hunger for free and unbiased reporting that has brought the cable channels much of its success. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Perspective, I think there are a lot of consumers who are aware that the terrestrials only present one of view and a lot of information be it news or programming is not disseminated to the public. I think it is a choice, they can see something they can't see on the terrestrials." SUPER CAPTION: Darlene Lee, Managing Director Frank Small and Associates Audiences are suspicious of the three state channels' perceived political links. Major shareholders in them include the ruling K-M-T political party, the Ministry of Defence and the Provincial Government. TNN or "Truth T-V" is at the opposite end of the spectrum to TVBS. Taiwan's first news-only channel, its operation is small with capital of just over seven (m) million U-S dollars. Its appeal lies in a focus on local news with more than half its reports in Taiwanese. The three national networks may have enough money and backing to hold audiences to established programmes, but are seen as unresponsive to audience needs. Their poor image means a steady flow of viewers are changing to cable. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "My family rarely watches the news of the 3 national networks. We usually watch TVBS." SUPERCAPTION: vox pop According to researchers, Taiwan's audience is hard to please. SOUNDBITE: (English) SUPER CAPTION: Darlene Lee, Managing Director Frank and Small Associates Foreign firms are waking up to the possible profits and the market is bracing itself for outside competition. Further competition may prove to be too much competition for some.
