White Out

There is an annual white themed rave in Taiwan that has been going on for 8 years now, and I was fortunate enough to attend this year. DJ's that performed this year include Vicetone, Tom Staar, and Heatbeat.

The rave scene in Taiwan is definitely growing rapidly as EDM gains its popularity in Asia. To be honest, I was not a huge fan of EDM initially, but after attending Ultra and the White party, I've actually grown to really enjoy it. As for my outfit, it was explicitly stated that in order to get in the party, you must dress in ALL WHITE. They almost didn't let me in because I wasn't dressed in 80% white clothing. I went with extremely minimalistic pieces with a black and white simple palette to highlight the white. I actually found this top a few hours before the rave because I was not happy with what I had on initially.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Ultra, it is an EDM music festival that tours all around the world. After a 5 hour bus ride from Taipei to Kaohsiung, I finally arrived at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center where Ultra was being held. I was fortunate enough to be at the first row in the center, where I was able to get an amazing view of everything. The music festival lasted from 4PM to 2AM, but since I was in the front where the music was blasting the loudest, I was not able to stay the whole 10 hours. I stayed for 6 hours and I was on the verge of fainting because it was so humid and crowded. The experience was amazing and I have to say my favorite DJ was definitely Justin Oh. I was not able to see Above & Beyond because they performed last, but I'm sure they were amazing as well.

I feel like because it was the first year that Ultra came to Taiwan, the quality was not up to par with the other ones. The venue was indoors, people were not dressed in rave-esque clothing, and the DJs were not as great as the other Ultra tours. However, I believe that Ultra Taiwan will only get better every year from here on out, and I can't wait to come back for round 2! So proud to be Taiwanese! EDM is definitely redefining the music industry by uniting people from all over the world with their passion for music.

nobody said it was easy

I find it extremely hard to pull together an outfit that is both weather appropriate and comfortable in Taiwan. It is so humid and hot here that I feel like I am sweaty all the time. This outfit is breathable and perfect for a casual day out with some friends.

June 5th was my mom's 54th birthday, so we had dinner at a panoramic restaurant on the 85th floor of Taipei 101. The view was breathtaking as we overlooked the whole city of Taipei while enjoying our delicious four course meals. Family always comes first, and I just wanted to remind everyone to always appreciate the love that our family unconditionally provides us with. Treasure the time you have with them because you never know where you will be in a few years. It's definitely been hard on my family with me living in NY, my sister in LA, and my parents in Taiwan. Having to travel across the globe simply to reunite with my family has made me realize that I need to take advantage of every moment I've got with my family.

Love Always,
