What to expect at the upcoming KKBOX Music Awards 2018



Words by Chong Yoke Ming on 12 January 2018



The 13th KKBOX Music Awards will be held on January 20th at the Kaohsiung Arena in Taiwan. This will be the first time the annual award ceremony is held at Kaohsiung, as opposed to Taipei, where it has been held for the past few years. As the much-anticipated KKBOX Music Awards draws nearer, what can Mandopop fans look forward to? But first, here's why this event is monumental in the world of Mandopop.

What is the KKBOX Music Awards?

The KKBOX Music Awards is an annual music fest organised by Taiwan-based music streaming service KKBOX. Every year, KKBOX will examine the listening statistics of their millions of viewers, and identify the ten most popular singers on their platform to be given the “Artist Of The Year” award, as well as the winners of other awards.

While the more renowned Golden Melody Awards, equivalent to the Grammy’s of Asia, appoints a panel of judges who decide the winners each year, the KKBOX Music Awards are determined by public opinion through user statistics, which may help provide a more accurate representation of consumer tastes in the industry.

The awards ceremony takes the form of a concert, with nearly 20 sets of artistes invited each year to perform. Singers who have performed at the awards in previous years include Mandopop A-listers like JJ Lin, Mayday and Jam Hsiao.

Who will be performing at the awards?

KKBOX boasts a stellar line-up at this year’s ceremony, which not only includes some of the biggest names in the industry, but also some of the breakout acts that have made their mark in 2017.

Fans can look forward to performances from “Artist Of The Year” award winners, who are among the most-streamed singers on KKBOX in 2017. The biggest name amongst them is long-time Hong Kong artist Eason Chan, who shares the immortal “God of Singers” title with fellow veteran Jacky Cheung.

Also on the list are pop divas Rainie Yang and G.E.M., who are among the most successful female singers in recent years, as well as first-time winners of the “Artist Of The Year” award, including Taiwanese singer-songwriters R-Chord and Crowd Lu, Malaysian artist Namewee and Taiwan’s rising EDM-pop star Nick Chou.

Winner of the “Best New Artist” award J.Sheon will also be performing at the ceremony. The hip-hop artist released his debut album last year and since been touted as new burgeoning face of Taiwan’s hip-hop scene.

Aside from the award winners, KKBOX has also brought in three A-lister special guests who have found success on their platform with their recent releases. These include two of the biggest names in Mandopop, JJ Lin and A-Mei, both of whom released their latest albums in December last year.

Lin is the biggest Mandopop singer to have come out of Singapore’s music scene, and has won two “Best Male Singer” awards at the Golden Melody Awards. He has also been a constant in the past few renditions of the KKBOX Music Awards, and will be no stranger to performing at the ceremony.

A-Mei is widely-recognised as the “Queen of Mandopop”, and is a much-revered figure in Asian pop music — her latest album Story Thief saw all ten of its songs reach the Top 20 chart on KKBOX upon release last month.

You can also expect to see Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse — known for his starring roles in iconic films like New Police Story and Young and Dangerous: The Prequel — who recently announced his return to music, shortly after releasing a new single earlier this month.

Other acts from Taiwan are also expected to perform, including pop teen idol Bii, rapper Miss Ko, R&B singer-songwriter Xiao Yu, and newcomer ANNA, who is also the niece of A-Mei.

What other events can we expect?

Besides the awards ceremony on 20 January, music lovers can look forward to other events held around Kaohsiung in the same weekend.

The KKBOX Music Awards Pre-party will begin at 6pm on 19 January at the Aozihdi Forest Park. This is a free-entry event which brings together top talents from the hip-hop and EDM scene in Taiwan — performers include rising young stars like Mr. Skin, Kumachan, Julia Wu, Trout Fresh and DJ RayRay.

At 2pm the next day, the KKBOX Future Star Stage will take place at the Level 2 Square at the Hanshin Arena Shopping Plaza, showcasing six of the most promising campus bands in Taiwan. This is an event for talented young musicians to come together in a casual artistic exchange. The winner of Singapore songwriting competition “SG:SW 2017” Elton Lee will also be performing at this event.

How do I watch the KKBOX Music Awards?

Audiences in Singapore can tune in at 7pm on 20 January for the live streaming of the awards on Channel U, Toggle, YES933 or Yahoo. Fans can also watch the ceremony live via the KKBOX app or their Facebook page.

遊艇展15日開幕 可登艇過過癮

2018-03-09 23:48聯合報 記者王昭月/高雄報導


「2018台灣國際遊艇展」在高雄展覽館展出許多豪華遊艇。 記者劉學聖/攝影


第3屆台灣國際遊艇展3月15日至18日在高雄展覽館登場,今年共有10國、1千個攤位參與,展示65艘遊艇、動力船及帆船,更首辦登艇體驗活動,盼翻轉「遊艇等於富豪專有」觀念。

高市府及經濟部國貿局合辦的2018台灣國際遊艇展,規模創新高,今年規畫遊艇展示、水上泊位、水上休憩等7大特色區,吸引美國、加拿大等廠商參展,義大利與韓國以「國家館」方式組隊參加。

「遊艇展是宣示國家經濟實力的表徵。」台灣遊艇工業同業公會理事長龔俊豪說,各國多從每次參展的廠商及人數預測經濟景氣,今年他大膽預測,台灣未來的經濟景氣一定看好。

高雄副市長史哲表示,全球80呎以上巨型遊艇訂單總長度排名,台灣居世界第4,全台33家遊艇製造廠,17家集中在高雄,但高雄雖有得天獨厚的港口,遊艇產業仍走得太慢。近年市府打掉港區圍牆,建造輕軌、流行音樂中心、駁二及高雄展覽館,藉由水岸連結,翻轉高雄指日可待。

經濟部國貿局副局長李冠志十分看好高雄推動「水岸城市」、「藍色經濟」,日後可成為帆船賽事訓練基地,讓台灣隊有機會在國際露臉。

台灣港務公司總經理郭添貴表示,港務公司與高市府計畫攜手在15號碼頭建造遊艇港,陸域約1.12公頃,水域有15公頃,為高雄打造更優質的親水空間。

配合國際遊艇展登場,創設40周年的嘉信集團也在亞灣啟用22號碼頭,遊艇公會理事長龔俊豪說,台灣遊艇泊位不足,以回收廢棄貨櫃興建的22號碼頭,推廣循環經濟,也呈現平民風格,讓遊艇不再是侷限富豪專有的休閒,全民玩遊艇的時代已經不遠。

全球99輛限量超跑 高雄遊艇展另類亮點

兩年一度的台灣國際遊艇展,自今(15日)起一連4天,在高雄展覽館、亞灣遊艇碼頭及嘉信22號遊艇碼頭盛大登場,在這裡除了可以看到各式最新超奢華遊艇之外,若你來到現場,一定要來朝聖一輛全世界僅限99輛、目前全台唯二的Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato超跑,這輛車是過去專司超跑保險領域的「極速超跑保險」在攤位上的重頭戲,而在遊艇展中商借這輛車來展出,最主要的意義便是宣示該公司即將擴展遊艇保險業務。

據極速超跑保險執行長蔣宗玲表示,購買遊艇與購買珍稀超跑的客戶,基本上有相當高的重疊性,而針對如此價昂的動產,該公司將擔任保險代理人的角色,針對購買遊艇之後的理賠、保固及保修項目等內容,幫助船主與第3方保險公司或是遊艇製造商協調處理,避免船主因不熟悉保險內容而受到平白損失;而一艘價值動輒幾千萬甚至上億的遊艇,其保險金額亦如同超跑保險,每年約為船隻本身售價的1-1.5%,其中評估內容包含船隻狀況、船主本身出險紀錄等等而定,若以一艘價值一億的遊艇來說,每年負擔的保險費約介於100-150萬元。

至於極速超跑保險攤位所展出的Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato限量超跑,則是Aston Martin在2016年與義大利設計工作室Zagato聯手推出的限量車款,在以Vanquish車款的基礎下重新雕琢內外設計,車頭部分最明顯的特徵便是「凸」字型水箱護罩內的Z字狀網格,並嵌入了雙圓LED日行燈組,擋風玻璃在碳纖維材質的A柱搭配下,與向下削斜的側窗營造出環繞式的效果,形象上也和遊艇相當類似,兩側葉子板立體化的氣流孔內,亦有專屬的Z字圖騰;而車尾則是Vanquish Zagato最大的重點,招牌雙拱車頂線條之後,則是力度十足的流暢收尾,搭配火焰狀的立體LED尾燈,營造出英義聯手截然不同的設計語言。

在動力部分Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato搭載的是6.0升V12自然進氣引擎,過重新調校之後具備高達600匹的最大馬力,0-100km/h加速可在3.5秒內完成。至於該車的身價,據了解在國內成交價約是4000萬元左右,但全球限量99輛的身分,未來此車身價勢必水漲船高。(林浩昇 / 高雄報導)

Kaohsiung mobile library adds stops

By Huang Chia-lin and Jonathan Chin / Staff reporter, with staff writer

Kaohsiung Public Library is this year to expand its library on wheels initiative for Southeast Asian migrant workers by making stops at more locations across the city, officials announced on Thursday.

Since November last year, the “Mobile Library: Reading Southeast Asia” program has on a monthly basis delivered books to female migrant workers living at Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Inc’s dormitories in the city’s Nanzih District (楠梓), the officials said.

The mobile library is to add the migrant workers’ residential complex and Laborers’ Park (勞工公園) in Cianjhen District (前鎮) to its itinerary, they said.

The collection of 1,400 titles in Southeast Asian languages is to be increased by 400 books, mostly works in English and Filipino to accommodate a growing population of Philippine workers, they added.

The residential complex has an estimated population of 1,000 Philippine migrant workers, 100 Vietnamese and some Thai workers, the officials said.

Services at that location are to be available near dormitory units one to four on Kuojian Road, they said.

The Laborers’ Park stop would make it easier for migrant workers in the nursing or elderly care sectors to borrow books, the officials said.

Services are to be available at the entrance of the Laborers’ Recreation Center near the park from 3pm to 5pm on the last Wednesday of each month, they said.

The library on wheels program is to have translators hired from the city’s new immigrants, as well as sing-along and storytelling services for older people who migrant workers are caring for, when appropriate, they added.

The municipal library thanked the National Immigration Agency’s local office and the Kaohsiung Labor Affairs Bureau for their assistance in furnishing the venues and other support for the program.

Kaohsiung signs on to host 2018 Esports World Championship


2018/04/02 22:53:32


Image taken from Pixabay


April 2 (CNA) Kaohsiung signed a contract Monday with the International e-Sports Federation (IeSF) to host this year's annual Esports World Championship in November.

The contract was signed by Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊), Chinese Taipei e-Sports Association (CTeSA) Director Cheng Pao-ching (鄭寶清), and IeSF board member Colin Webster.

Chen said the city was well prepared to host the event for the first time after having successfully hosted the 2009 World Games, an international multisport event held every four years.

Esports have already become one of the most highly watched sports in the world, and they will be featured at the Asian Games in 2018 and 2022, she said.

Even the International Olympic Committee is discussing the idea of including esports in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, making it critical for Taiwan to continue developing its esports industry, Chen said.

The 10th edition of the Esports World Championship will be held at Kaohsiung Arena from November 9 to 11.

The three-day event is expected to attract more than 1,000 players from over 50 countries, according to gaming organizers.

Taiwan International Fastener Show reaches new highs in 2018






24TH APRIL 2018 JONATHON HARKER INTERNATIONAL, NEWS

The 2018 Taiwan International Fastener Show, which ran 10-12 April, broke its own records, with the most exhibitors and booths recorded at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre since it was founded.

This year’s show saw 415 exhibitors (2016: 402) and over 1,107 booths (2016: 1,002).

According to the official statistics, 2,193 international buyers (2016: 2,000) from 73 countries (2016: 75) visited. Participation increased 10% compared to the last show, in 2016, and over 30,000 domestic and foreign visitors also attended (2016 total: 28,586).

Up to 90% of buyers expressed their approval and satisfaction with this year’s exhibition and over 80% expressed their intention to return in 2020.

The top-ten purchasing nations this year were mainland China, Japan, India, United States, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, and Thailand. There were 70% more buyers from Italy this year, with more buyers also attending from Germany, Thailand, Brazil, Russia, and France, demonstrating that the exhibition has become an ideal business procurement platform for the global fastener industry, the organiser said.


Fastener Summit & procurement meetings



The 2018 exhibition featured a variety of activities, including the Global Fastener Summit held on the opening day of the exhibition, featuring a car fastener-theme. The European Fastener Distributor Association (EFDA), Auto Manufacturer Mercedes Benz (Germany), Vissart Europe (France), TR Fastenings (UK), and QST International (Taiwan) were all invited to analyse the global automotive fastener industry and market trends. The summit drew over 250 fastener industry representatives from 19 countries including Taiwan, United States, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, India, Poland, China, Brazil, South Korea, and Japan. The entire summit was also broadcast live to over 1,600 online viewers.

Taiwan International Fastener Show procurement meetings were held during the exhibition. Fifty-one ‘heavyweight’ buyers from Germany, United States, Russia, France, Brazil, and South Africa were invited to participate in 230 negotiation sessions with 78 domestic exhibitors, generating venue and potential business opportunities of up to US$270 million.

The first ever One-on-One Employment Meetings event attracted 6 domestic manufacturers and 16 applicants to 46 matching sessions. Five applicants were potentially hired as manufacturing employees. Two seminars focused separately on India and Indonesia’s fastener markets and smart manufacturing, and attracted over 300 fastener manufacturers.

Super Basketball League (SBL) Finals in Kaohsiung

Red-hot Braves looking to upset Archiland in Finals

By Jason Pan / Staff reporter

Sat, Apr 21, 2018

The Super Basketball League (SBL) Finals get under way today in Kaohsiung, with upstarts the Fubon Braves taking on perennial powerhouse Pauian Archiland in a best-of-seven series.

Both Game 1 and Game 2 are at the Kaohsiung Arena this weekend, before the series moves to New Taipei City’s Sinjhuang Gymnasium on Wednesday, with all the games starting at 7pm.

Fubon Braves supporters believe the team have unstoppable momentum after their surprise 4-0 series victory over regular-season first-place finishers the Yulon Luxgen Dinos in the semi-finals.

They face an experienced Pauian Archiland lineup who had won four consecutive SBL titles from 2011-2012 to 2014-2015 when known as Pure Youth Construction under the guidance of head coach Hsu Chin-che and his American assistant Ben Metcalf.

Hsu took over as head coach of the Braves last season after quitting Archiland in 2015 to take charge of the Shanxi Brave Dragons in the Chinese Basketball Association.

Meanwhile, Metcalf took over as Archiland head coach after Hsu’s departure and led the club to the SBL Finals in 2015-2016.

Archiland were beaten 4-2 by Taiwan Beer.

This year’s SBA Finals are seen as a fascinating battle between Hsu and Metcalf, with old master Hsu being challenged by his former understudy.

“It seems like everyone is focused on the two head coaches for this series,” Metcalf said. “I want to stay away from that discussion and hope the fans can concentrate on the performance of the players on the court. Both teams are familiar with each other, so it will be a great series.”

Fans are also looking forward to the key match-up in the series between the two US-born centers, Quincy Davis of Archiland and Garret Siler of the Braves.

Davis is likely to be joined in an attacking lineup by Shih Chin-hao, Lee Chi-wei and Chen Chien-en, who are likely to be going up against Siler, Tsai Wen-cheng, Chang Tsung-hsien and Hung Chih-shang.

There is also the contrasting playing styles of two Taiwanese-Americans, Douglas Creighton of Archiland and the Braves’ Joseph Lin, the younger brother of NBA star Jeremy Lin of the New Jersey Nets.

Fans were surprised to see Taiwanese-American NBA star Jeremy Lin in Kaohsiung Arena. He had accompanied his parents to watch both games and cheer on his younger brother, Joseph Lin, who is playing in his first SBL finals.

‘Red Quinoa Princess’ crowned in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Beauty contest celebrates aboriginal culture and quinoa

By Renée Salmonsen,Taiwan News, Staff Writer
2018/04/30 14:21



Sunday evening 12 women competed for the title of “Red Quinoa Princess” (全國紅藜親善公主選拔大賽) at the Han Hsin Arena in Kaohsiung.

Red quinoa (紅藜) is an indigenous Taiwan grain and a popular crop among aboriginal groups with many health benefits. The Pingtung County Majia Township Office held the event for this first time ever to raise awareness of the area and their treasured crop, also called "dulis" in Paiwan language.




The 12 competitors, aged 18 to 28, demonstrated their abilities to sing and dance, as well as their knowledge of red quinoa and culture.

The crown went to Ho Wei-lin (何韋琳), an freshman studying at the National University of Kaohsiung.

Although Ho’s family did not grow red quinoa, her father is a police officer and her mother works with handmade crafts, from a young age Ho would help her family and community members to sift the red quinoa as they prepared the grain to eat.

Ho said that the "Red Quinoa Princess” can serve as a marketing tool for Michia Township, according to LTN.

Ho said that before the competition she researched information on red quinoa and then asked her family how to describe the grain in their native tongue, according to Taiwan Indigenous TV (TITV).

CPC Corporation unveils Taiwan's first electric-powered oil tankers

The two ships are Taiwan's first electric-powered vessels with a hull capacity of over 500 tons

By Duncan DeAeth,Taiwan News, Staff Writer
2018/04/23 20:28



On April 23, Taiwan’s state-supported CPC Corporation unveiled two new oil tankers that will be joining their fleet, each weighing 1,999 tons, with a carrying capacity of up to 2,700 tons.

However unlike all of the company’s other vessels the “CPC No. 21” and “CPC No. 22” will be fueled by an electric propulsion system, the first of its kind for any of Taiwan’s ocean tankers, and marking the first electric powered ships in Taiwan with a hull capacity of over 500 tons.

The two ships were unveiled at a ceremony Monday in Kaohsiung Harbor ahead of their maiden voyage. The captains and crew of the two vessels also received the ships’ ensigns at the ceremony.

The electric oil tankers were built by a Singaporean company, Triyards Marine Service, and cost NT$367 million each (US$12.4 million). They are also constructed using a “double-shell” hull structure that will prevent leakage and large scale pollution in the event of an accident, according to the report at CNA.

After being constructed in Singapore, and tested on the water in Vietnam, the ships were brought to Kaohsiung Harbor in January, where they will now enter service as refueling tankers in the CPC fleet.

The chairman of the CPC Corporation Tai Chien (戴謙) said that the new electric powered vessels were constructed in response to the increasing demand for more environmentally friendly initiatives, and the country’s aim to become a more efficient “green” society.

Tai was quoted by CNA as saying that the new electric barges will produce 29 percent less Co2 than each of the other nine gas powered vessels in the CPC fleet.

The ships will not only set a new bar for energy efficiency among large ocean-faring vessels, but are also expected to have a positive impact on the overall air quality in Kaohsiung as well. With the new vessels in the fleet, the rate of oil imports coming from Hong Kong to southern Taiwan is also set to increase as well.
