Everyone knows about orchid flowers, and rarely aware of their scientific alliance as Phalaenopsis, or sometimes also refer as Moth Orchids.

Phalaenopsis is least that I have heard of, only till I get to know Taiwan is championed as the the leading grower and export of orchids globally.  Thus, dominating more than 70% of the world’s market.

Tainan City, specifically at the location of HouBi district , is given the great honor to showcase its annual event, Taiwan International Orchid Show (TIOS).

After living here for some time, I started to fall in love with this plant. Least as a hobby, and more towards an obsession for its exotic beauty.

I have taken some abstract-shot of Phalaenopsis orchids, where you can see the anther cap, lips, stigmatic surface.

One shot with a spider resting on the petal.

Every photography shot from my mobile camera and has shared in my Instagram’s profile.

Found this video in dual languages introducing about Tainan City.

Also provide English subtitles if spoken languages are in Mandarin or in their local Taiwanese language.

This video is produced by Tainan City Government Tourism Bureau.

And it lasted about 30 minutes which provides a fully comprehensive understanding of its life, culture, food, living, education, work and play.

Chinese character (安) engraved on stone.

Pronounce as “An”, same sound and word-stress as first syllable of ‘Unless, Until, Under’.

Meaning: peaceful; at ease; undisturbed; tranquil; calm; safe; secure.

One of the most auspicious characters in Chinese culture and ethnicity.
