I started a daily vlog about my life as an American in Taiwan


Good editing can make a lot of daily activities seem quite interesting. I need to learn from OP for some of my videos.


Thanks for the input! I really appreciate you taking your time to let me know! :slight_smile:


thank you! Thats what I’m going for. :slight_smile:


Lets go vlogging sometime!


I just watched the one with the breakfast, music, and talking. I was expecting to see something less than impressive but that was a really cool video. I like the way the music images and spoken words combine. I’ll subscribe to the channel


I would be down for that. I’ll PM you and we can set something up. Doesn’t matter the topic, I got (half) a lifetime of knowledge about Taipei, or at least I hope I do compared to some of the members here.

I hope I don’t bring down the value of your channel haha

As you can see from my videos, that I’ve posted before, not as many views as you. However, it’s more about the content! My videos is really geared towards a really small audience.


First of all, your scooter/bike footage is awesome! It would only add to my channel :smile: plus you can help me get some awesome gopro shots.

let me know whenever you’re up for something!


I’m flattered. My unedited, (some) poor quality scooter videos has caught your attention. In my defense, I was playing around with file formats that Power Director allowed, I’ve since realized I’m not pro enough and have switched to the Garmin Virb editing software.

Pay zero attention to the subscriptions and total views. I’ve had my account since the year Youtube was found and randomly uploaded an MV to test the capabilities. Turns out, if you search that MV on Youtube, mine is the first one that comes up.

Any who, don’t want to steal the thunder of your thread! Keep up the good work! Looking forward to the next one.


Today Taiwan essentially legalized gay marriage


What kind of camera do you use for recording?


a Canon Rebel T6!

I stayed at an awesome Japanese style hotel in Tainan, and learned how to make Oolong tea.


Rest areas in Taiwan are WAY bigger than any I’ve ever seen in America. What do you guys think?


There’s nothing quite like a Thai one :meat_on_bone:


Never been, care to elaborate? :slight_smile:


The classic one on intercity roads is a gas station with standard attachments like a convenience store, a coffee shop, and a food court. On highways there are some bigger ones that are like a long strip of like 100 different food, beverage and convenience stores of various types. Not so fancy, but would like to be there


Sounds really cool. Asian countries kind of crush it.


Most likely because the average individual Asian can’t handle driving for more than 1.5 to 2 hours at a time before needing a break and then desire a place almost like a low-grade night market; unlike North Americans who can drive on highways across the countryside and only stop when the gas tank needs to be filled up (and then get a bite to eat).


This is my new video about the subject of convenience stores. (be sure to subscribe)

As foreigners do we rely too much on convenience stores? Do we avoid talking with locals? Sometimes I really think I go to 7/11 too much, and I just need to put myself out into the local area…

I’m curious to hear everyone’s thoughts on the subject.


I did at first but don’t as much. Just when I want a Coke Zero or candy bar :slight_smile:

Also, for some reason I like those fun language misunderstandings.
