Who are Buddies?

    Buddies are students of National Sun Yat-sen University who decided to help our

    incoming International Exchange Students, mainly shortly after their arrival. Their

    duties are among others:

     to contact an International Exchange Students before his/ her arrival

     to await a student at the place of arrival (airport, railway station, etc.)

     to take the student to the place of accommodation (halls of residence/ other place

    for accommodation)

     to accompany and show the way to school,

    Simply to make the first days of our International Exchange students in our city

    live easier.

    What else is offered by the Buddies?

    Common weekends are organized for Exchange Students during the school year,

    trips to the surrounding places, cultural-historical excursions to significant sights of

    Taiwan, sports activities, parties, etc.

    Basic Information

    The Republic of China (ROC), commonly known throughout the world as Taiwan,

    is an oceanic nation of 23 million people with a combined area of approximately

    36,000 sq. km (13,900 sq. miles), making it slightly smaller than the Netherlands. It

    comprises the main island of Taiwan (see “Taiwan Proper” below), the archipelagoes

    of Penghu (the Pescadores), Kinmen (Quemoy), and Matsu, and a number of other

    islands.

    The Republic of China (ROC) has been transformed many times since its

    founding in 1912. “Revolution,” “rebellion,” and “reform” characterize the three

    stages of the nation’s development. Having effected a relocation from the Asian continent in 1949 to Taiwan, the ROC has matured into a free-market, multiparty

    democracy and is now the home of 23 million well-traveled, well-educated, and

    industrious people.

    Cuisines in Taiwan have several variations. In addition to the following representative dishes from the people of Hoklo (Hō-ló) ethnicity, there are also

    Aboriginal, Hakka, and local derivatives of Chinese cuisines (one famous example of

    the last is beef noodle soup).Taiwanese cuisine itself is often associated with

    influences from mid to southern provinces of China, most notably from the province

    of Fujian (Hokkien), but influences from all of China can easily be found. A notable

    Japanese influence exists due to the period when Taiwan was under Japanese rule.

    Traditional Chinese food to be found in Taiwan, alongside Fujian and Hakka-style as

    well as native Taiwanese dishes, includes dishes from Guangdong, Jiangxi, Shanghai,

    Hunan, Sichuan and Beijing.

Ingredients and Culture

    Pork, rice, soy are very common ingredients, as with many Taiwanese cuisines. Beef is far less common, and some Taiwanese (particularly the elderly generation)

    still refrain from eating it. This is in part due to the considerations of some Taiwanese Buddhists, a traditional reluctance towards slaughtering precious cattle needed for

    agriculture, and an emotional attachment to such beasts of labour. Curiously, beef

    noodle soup remains one of the most popular dishes in Taiwan, in spite of this

    traditional aversion.

    Taiwan's cuisine has also been influenced by its geographic location. Living on a crowded island, the Taiwanese had to look aside from the farmlands for sources of

    protein. As a result, seafood figures prominently in their cuisine. This seafood

    encompasses many different things, from large fish such as tuna and grouper, to

    sardines and even smaller fish such as anchovies. Crustaceans, squid, and cuttlefish

    are also eaten.

    Because of the island's sub-tropical location, Taiwan has an abundant supply of various fruit, such as papayas, melons and citrus fruit. A wide variety of tropical fruits, imported and native, are also enjoyed in Taiwan. Other agricultural products in

    general are rice, corn, tea, pork, poultry, beef, fish, and other fruits and vegetables.

    Fresh ingredients in Taiwan are readily available from markets.

    In many of their dishes, the Taiwanese have shown their inventiveness in their

    selection of spices. Taiwanese cuisine relies on an abundant array of seasonings for

    flavor: Soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil, fermented black beans, pickled radishes,

    peanuts, chili peppers, cilantro (sometimes called Chinese parsley), and a local variety

    of basil (九層塔, literally meaning "nine storey pagoda"). The resulting dishes thus

    combine and form interesting tastes which make Taiwanese cuisine simple in format

    yet complex in experience.
