Taiwanese student creates incredible art with materials others would throw away【Photos】

Tony Stark is a character whose power comes from his ingenuity in designing and building his Iron Man suits and weapons. And of course having millions of dollars at his disposal helped.

Meet Kai-xiang Xhong, the Tony Stark (sans riches) of cardboard art. Some people might laugh at the phrase “cardboard art,” but this man’s sculptures are so stunning that it’s hard to believe they are made of the same stuff your Amazon purchases arrive in. Take, for instance, the life-size Iron Man suit shown above. (Did we mention it’s wearable? There is a person in that suit, walking around and bending parts without it falling to pieces!)

The greatest wish of underprivileged “pig-shed” sibilings is to have a bright lamp

It was Children’s Day in Taiwan on April 4th, and while many children probably wished for new toys and games or a day of fun and play, a pair of underprivileged siblings living in Nantou County of Taiwan wished for nothing more than a really bright light so that they could study, and for it to rain less so that they could sleep on dry beddings.

Never fear, Uterus Man is here: Video featuring anthropomorphic lady parts turns heads

We’ve seen a lot of anthropomorphic characters coming out of Asia, such as smiling Japanese salmon fillets and Chinese “map girls.” There have been some really strange ones, but we never thought we’d see anthropomorphic lady parts rocketing across our computer screens. But here it is, Uterus Man, directed and edited by Taiwanese artist, Lu Yang.

A look at Asia’s schoolgirl uniforms【Photos】

Uniforms are worn all over the world by many different groups of people to visually proclaim their association. There’s military uniforms, nurse uniforms, fireman uniforms, flight attendant uniforms, and the one that many people probably have personal experience with – school uniforms. We take the uniforms we see in our own countries for granted, but of course with different cultures come different dress codes. Some countries want their students dressed traditionally, others allow a lot of freedom for them to express their own styles. So read on to take a look at some of Asia’s schoolgirls – eyes on the uniforms, please!

Lycra-clad Super Sentai descend on Taiwan to… pick up trash?!

Japan sure knows how to say thanks in a unique way! Super Sentai (not to be confused with hentai!) were on hand to save the day in Taiwan by rescuing an area from rubbish, in a street-cleaning event that began as a way of showing gratitude for Taiwan’s contributions to the Tohoku disaster relief effort. And what expresses those feelings better than people running around in flashy skin-tight suits?

Taiwanese school boy finds real grenade while playing war, presumably wins

The modern dilemma over whether it’s okay for young boys to play games based on warfare was seemingly put to the test in Taiwan recently as two very young boys happened upon a real and unused grenade near the park they were playing in.

The event, which was reported in Searchina based on New Taipei media, resulted in the military getting called in and opened up a slew of legal and sociological debate.

Why stare at fireworks way out in the sky? In Yanshui they’ll shoot them right in your face

Have you ever watched the first twenty minutes of Saving Private Ryan and thought to yourself: “Man, that looks like one hell of a party”? If your answer is yes, then you might want to check out the annual Yanshui Fireworks Festival in Taiwan every February.

The event has gained notoriety for not only shooting its fireworks into the sky, but also directly at the faces of people watching them. Although such interactivity makes this the next level in fireworks displays, this festival actually dates back nearly two centuries.

Taiwanese online retailer shows us the secret to increasing sales: BOOBS!【Photos】

Boobs make the world a better place. For starters, boobs give life. I mean, mothers breastfeed their babies, right? Also, boobs make mundane everyday life more tolerable. Seriously, could you imagine a world with only man boobs? How depressing is that! Let’s not forget that boobs work wonders on the internet (trust us, we’ve seen the page access counts spike whenever boobs are involved). And of course, boobs are the invincible sales boosters when it comes to the retail business.

A young online entrepreneur in Taiwan jazzed up his biker gear auction pages with a model’s shapely bosom and saw an immediate increase in page views, with a 30% increase in sales to boot!

This week, on a very special Photoshop Trolls: One grandmother’s dying wish

This week, on a very special Photoshop Trolls: One grandmother’s dying wish

For quite some time now we’ve had fun watching Asia’s Photoshop-skilled netizens have fun at the expense of others. Whether it’s putting boobs on a guy, or taking them of a woman, we’re always in for a chuckle. Still, it also makes you wonder what lies in the hearts of those anonymous artists. Do they have some sort of grudge against humanity as a whole to make us look as if we can fly by the power of our own farts with the mere click of a mouse?

Photoshop trolls’ souls were put to the test recently when a resident of Taiwan uploaded an old family photo along with his dying grandmother’s request: “Could anyone colourize this photo? Please grant this dying wish of my grandmother. All she wants is to be able to clearly see how her family once looked, one last time.”

Bus driver’s kind service towards blind passenger wins praise from Taiwanese netizens

Taking the bus or train is a mundane routine for many of us. Sometimes, when there are delays in the arrival or an unexpected breakdown of such public transportation, we get annoyed or even angry at the drivers or transportation companies. But how many of us have ever thanked them for fulfilling their responsibilities of arriving on time, or for driving safely?

Over in Taichung, Taiwan, a bus driver went the extra mile to help a blind commuter onboard and off the bus, winning some unexpected praise and commendation from passengers and netizens on Taiwanese forums.

Revolutionary illustration combines 2D and 3D techniques for super realistic butts!

Last year, we introduced an illustration guide book that teaches you how to draw men’s butts. They’re like green peppers, remember? Well, scrap that. If you can’t draw butts, here’s a nifty trick that’ll give your manga darlings a sexy tush that looks so real, it’s literally 3D art. All you need is your fingers! Details after the cut!

Sexy doctors and nurses serve up McDonald’s in Taiwan!

The weather might still be chilly down in Taiwan right now, but the heat among their McDonald’s outlets is blazing through the roof! Last year, we found outlets with their cashier girls dressed as maids, schoolgirls and flight attendants, but on New Year’s Day this year, an McDonald’s outlet at Kaohsiung joined the cosplay rally with cashiers dressed in pastel pink nurse uniforms and thigh-high stockings!

Oh duck! Giant rubber duck exhibition in Taiwan sparks off massive copyright infringement conflict!


It seems our favorite giant rubber duck is in deep trouble again! Following its deflating experience at Taoyuan, it has risen to the headlines again while visiting Keelung, the last stop of its Taiwan tour. This time around, not only was it put up to the trials of bad weather, a series of marketing and planning hiccups due to miscommunication with the art piece’s creator put the big yellow fellow through a whirlwind of media reports. But what exactly went wrong?

McDonald’s Taiwan serves up fast food with cat ears, schoolgirl uniforms and a salute!

McDonald’s Taiwan serves up fast food with cat ears, schoolgirl uniforms and a salute!

We recently found a McDonald’s in Taiwan with cashiers who served customers in ultra-cute pink maid uniforms, but apparently that was just the beginning. Not happy with just catering to McDonald’s customers with maid fetishes, this particular McDonald’s has been branching out and workers were seen wearing the iconic Japanese-style schoolgirl outfit, knee-high stockings and cat ears. These cat-eared Sailor Moon-inspired costumes were a big hit and have left netizens all over the world wanting more!

McDonald’s has maids in Taiwan. We’ve got videos here

McDonald’s has maids in Taiwan. We’ve got videos here

As an American living in Japan, I often get asked, “Do you miss McDonald’s?” This always strikes me as a strange question, as living near downtown Tokyo puts me in closer proximity to more outlets of the Golden Arches than I ever had growing up in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

Plus, it’s a little hard to get homesick for McDonald’s when you’ve got access to mouth-watering okonomiyaki and sushi joints, not to mention delicious Indian and Chinese restaurants. Being surrounded by the culinary delights of Asia means it takes something pretty special to coax you into a Big Mac run.

McDonald’s cashiers in Taiwan dressing up in frilly pink maid outfits definitely qualifies.

The thing that’s been in the spotlight on Taiwanese internet this week is a fairly simple, 10-second video clip. There’s no out-of-this-world discovery, fancy special effects or social drama to this clip, so we won’t blame you if you’re wondering why we even bother sharing it, but… but… it’s a video of real, actual, dancing boobs!

You want to see it too, right? We won’t tell anyone you took a peek, so go ahead and enjoy the show!

Video of man “posing as a Japanese” while smoking on Taipei subway leaves Asia confused

Video of man “posing as a Japanese” while smoking on Taipei subway leaves Asia confused

A curious video uploaded to YouTube late last week has been raising eyebrows across Asia today, but perhaps not for the reasons it was originally shot. In it, we see a man smoking a cigarette on the subway in Taipei, mouthing off to those around him after they ask him to extinguish it. A few seconds in, however, and we notice that there’s something else not quite right.

Simply titled “Man posing as a Japanese smokes on the subway“, the video has already been viewed thousands of times, with nearly every comment after it saying more or less the same thing: “That guy’s not Japanese.”
