Art by Chin Ko
I’ve always been drawn to old things, old things expand my imagination, and I enjoy listening to folk stories and being moved by them. I was lucky to grow up in Tainan, a historic and intimate place full of surprises. What I remember most about Old Tainan is the vibrant street life, full of tradition, where you can not only see but feel the energy of the the city.
After I left Taiwan, Tainan remained strong in my memories, especially its friendly people, unique culture, rich history, and simple pace of life. Luckily, I have always had the support and understanding of my husband Chin Ko, and when I described my impression of Tainan, he created colorful artistic interpretations of my memories. Through these illustrations, I hope that you will take a moment to rediscover and enjoy this beautiful city and its people.

長大後離開台灣，老台南的簡單與深刻存活在記憶裡，記得滿滿的人情味、獨特的文化、生活哲學以及時光的痕跡。更幸運的是得到老公柯金祥的支持，我向他描述印象中的台南，他用畫筆將我的記憶詮釋更多采多姿。 從心 看見老台南，要分享的是老台南給我們的感動，讓更多人看見值得慢下腳步的美麗人事物。
