Episode 14 – My old ‘hood—Taipei
Original air date: April 5, 2010




Ivy Lin talks about Episode 14 of Current City:

This episode is possibly closest to my heart…a very sentimental journey indeed!
You will hear the sounds of the city where I grew up; the sounds of the yummy street food I miss so much; the sounds of bustling street vendors where my mom and I get the good buys; the uprooted feeling of being a visitor in a place I used to call home.
With the aid of some very sappy Taiwanese pop songs (see below), I was moved to tears during the editing of this episode. So come join me down memory lane in my old hood—Taipei!

Music for this episode is from New Greatest Hits II 2008 (Taiwan pop) and Missing You Compilation. Songs include “You Are a Song in My Heart” by Wong Li-Hong and Selina (duet in Taiwanese and Mandarin Chinese), “Rainy Day” by Nan-Chuang MaMa, “Listen to Mom!” by Zhou Jie-Lun, “I Didn’t Realize You Were Right Next to Me” by Hsiao Hong-Ren and “Our Love Was a Game, a Dream” by Wang Jie.
