台灣朋友們 請直接省去英文部分!!!

(There’ll be a translation version under every paragraph with my terrible English….)
我英文很爛請多多包涵
但還是想打外國人看^^畢竟天燈是偶們的驕傲馬~~


今年我跟Iris 去菁桐參加2015年的天燈節
辦在菁桐的菁桐國小(不然還會在哪裡)
其實就非常接近平溪
通常一想到天燈 會直接聯想到平溪
可是今年就是在青桐舉辦!


今年被好多外國朋友說服 叫我一定要陪他們去參加這個活動
開始讓我覺得
天燈節好像真的是台灣 少數中可以向外國炫耀的local stuff這樣
不然台灣的特色,其實很難舉得出什麼例子耶

台灣的天燈節曾被Discovery頻道評為世界第二大節慶嘉年華
美國CNN新聞網推薦為「世界上52件最值得參與的年度新鮮事」、
全球最大的旅遊出版公司Fodor’s也將新北市平溪天燈節列入全球14大「死前必遊」的經典節慶之一,

雖然我離死還有一段距離
但是隨時也是要做好準備嘛
所以Alicia跟Iris決定give it a try !!!

 

2015’s first sky lantern festival was hold in Jingtong elementary school.
(there will be another two times because the event holds 3 times a year .
In 2015, it’s on 2/22,2/27 and 3/5.)


It’s really special because when it comes to sky lantern,normally Pingxi would be the first image that comes to mind.
Actually,Pingxi and Jingtong are quite close.
Just one station away from each(20mins on foot).

Taiwan’s sky lantern festival is a must-go destionation .
Cause it’s the one of few local stuffs that Taiwan is proud of.


It’s once listed by Discovery to be the” second largest Carnival in the world” (really?)
And was recommended by CNN as “the 52th worth doing something new
Also,The word’s biggest publisher Fodor’s listed the Sky Lantern Festival as one of “14 must-traveling destionation before death”.

Though I’m still young,

I should be well-prepared in any case.
So I determined that I should go there this year
Let’s get started !!

問題是,怎麼去呢!!!

 

四點時,我們先在木柵的”動物園站”等接駁車
為了這次活動,主辦單位每五分鐘就發一班連接木柵到青桐國小的bus
但也有很多別的方法可以去
因為不見得每次的接駁車都會辦在一樣的地方
所以以後朋友們要去的話
請先參考這個網站
這面非常詳細的列出來各種到達的辦法


http://www.sungertain.com/front/bin/ptdetail.phtml?Part=LOT22314

1. 第一種就是用主辦單位發的接駁車
先做到MRT 木柵捷運站 等接駁車
一人五十!!!
(上山50下山免費)
會排很久嗎??? 完全不會唷!!!超快的 但下山要擠一下

2. 第二種就是搭火車啦!
從台北車站出發 買到瑞芳(往蘇澳方向)的票
40分鐘後到瑞芳
轉菁桐方向 坐到平溪或菁桐站就好哩!!!
簡單嗎~

HOW TO GET THERE


When it’s 4:00
We waited for the shuttle bus which was lanched by the organizer
You can go there by other means
The details are in this website.


http://www.sungertain.com/front/bin/ptdetail.phtml?Part=LOT22314

But it’s all written in English
So I sort them out for you


1. Shuttle bus lauched by the organizer (directly take you to the destionation)
(1.) Take the MRT to the “Zoo station” (in Wenhu Line)
(2.) Wait for the shuttle bus when you go out the station
(3.) You will see countless people wait in line (that’s what Taiwanese always do)
(4.) Give the staff 50NT then get on the bus!!!


2. Train (you’ll have to transfer)
(1.) go to Taipei main station first
(2.) Then take a train to Ruifang(瑞芳)station
(3.) Transfer a train to jingtong(菁桐) but maybe you should get out off the train at pingxi station
(the exact place will depent on the organizer’s decision )


I recommend you arrive earlier because you’ll must have fun around PINGXI
PINGXI and Jingtiong are 20 minutes away on foot
The festival starts at 18:00
We arrived at 17:00
It’s not enough!!!

去到那裡時才五點多
菁桐離平溪不遠 走路20分鐘就可以到了
我跟Iris想說去平溪玩一下再回來
玩要玩什麼呢?
其實不外乎也就只是吃吃喝喝拍個照而已~~
真膚淺= =””


以下是我的三八寫真時間

Here comes my silly photos...

恩…鐵軌就是個怎麼照都照不膩的東東…
但是很容易跌倒唷
老人家不要輕易嘗試…

亂到不行的丸子頭(接駁車上狂睡 唉~)
搭配頗有詩意的平溪老街

Pingxi’s picturesque antique street

Iris幫我拍的一系列鐵軌照裡面
我最喜歡的就這張了
好像因為沒露臉
所以最好看~~~


Hehe I love railway
I love the pics without my face.

 

 

DSC_0541  

露個臉 也不賴壓^^ 不是變胖唷 是衣服!!!

also look good with my face

拍到最後 自己都覺得好像在為茶花綠茶拍廣告…
這 不 是 業 配 文…..


This is not a commercial advertisement for the green tea in my hand
I was just thirsty.

鐵軌上,有非常多人在放天燈唷
“on the railway”,lots of people were launching sky lanterns.

DSC_0503  

Make their wishes on the lantern.

你們難道不怕被火車撞嗎……
我心中一直有這個疑問
後來果然…火車來了!!!!

我開始為這些心懷盼望的同胞們擔心起來
別…別


DSC_0501  
light the fire and …..Release!!!

喔不
好像在演偶像劇 會不會太溫馨??
好險這個火車開的比騎腳踏車還慢
所以沒有人會在此喪命的
各位放心地在鐵軌上放天燈吧!!!

Relax,there won’t be any trains bumping into you
because they run as slowly as bikes.

不得了 有點淪陷在這個詩情畫意的巷弄之間了
“六點”就要開始”萬人齊放天燈”的活動
而且地點在菁桐國小
距離平溪20分鐘腳程

怎麼辦
我跟Iris不小心玩到六點多了
一路往菁桐國小狂奔

結果我們快到時
Oh no!!!
已經看到一大群天燈
遠遠地往天上飛去………
我的眼淚快飛出來!!!!

人家迢迢千里來這邊
為的不是去平溪拍幾張照片的小確幸
是為了見證台灣的最大的驕傲呀-----天燈 啊!!!
sorry 講話比較浮誇一點

We are too indulged in this touchy atmosphere.
to be aware of the time.
We suddenly noticed “Oh damn! it’s 6:00 already
We were supposed to be in the Jingtong elementary school and join the”tens of thousands lantern releasing show
RUN!!!

When we almost got there
We saw…
Shit!!! Hundreds of sky lanterns just released to the sky
Becoming smaller and smaller
I almost cried,we miss it !!! no!!!
Fortunetely,
A passenger told me,there are 8 terms in the festival
So I just missed the first,the other 7 were still waiting for me
Yeah~~~

好險在路上
有人解釋說
一次天燈節總共會有”八回”萬人齊放
(名字是這樣取 其實應該才百人而已….所以可以放很多回^^)

所以我們只錯過了第一回
快一點可以看到第二回喔!!!
不用急不用急~~~
幾點去都可以

果然 一到菁桐國小
就看到這個見證歷史的一刻
2015平溪天燈節 萬人齊放 第二回!!!!!
我忍不住呻吟出來!!!
啊!!!
因為實在太美了
但我一叫旁邊的人以為她踩到我的腳 狂說對不起….= =

DSC_0568  

 

WTF,it’s fuking spectacular.
I almost cried again !!!

(我不是很會拍夜景)

 

DSC_0560  

今年是羊年
好多天燈上都有一隻喜羊羊XDDD
You can see goats(sheep? I can’t tell the difference) on those lanterns

cause it’s goat year (sheep lamb?)this year.

如果覺得我的照片很醜
就打關鍵字找圖片(看別人拍的) 你就知道真的很美

這八輪中 每一輪會放不同顏色的天燈
不同顏色的天燈也有不同的意思
例如紅色代表吉祥
粉紅色代表愛情
綠色代表健康……

 

Lanterns of different colors are released in the different terms
and they stand for different meanings
Ex.
RED--FORTUNE
PINK—LOVE
GREEN--HEALTH

既然講到這種跟迷信、傳統、文化有關的事情
那就要來講解一下天燈的由來了!!yeah~~~


天燈也是有故事的!!!
以下取自wiki

平溪位在偏遠山區,清道光年間,當地族人辛勤開墾,成為的富足村落,但由於山區交通不發達,官府無法管轄,所以很多山賊。村民為保性命,在冬至過後,村民收成結束,即收拾家當遁入山區,一直到元宵,才派人回村察看,確定安全後,釋放天燈以報平安,此舉遂演變而成今日的平溪天燈節。

總之講了那麼多 天燈就是古人為了”報平安”發明的
有點感動…

演變至今
我們把心願也在天燈上,在簽上我們的名字,希望上天能夠接收我們的願望…..

是不是更有意義了呢!!!

Now that we started to talk about culture,
Let’s talk about something further.
Sky lantern has its own story.


It’s alleged that Long time ago (in Xing dynasty),
PINGXI’s transpotation was so inconvinient that police can’t monitor this area
Therefore,many mountain thieves covetted residents’ property cause they were rather rich in the past time.


When it’s winter solstice,folks gathered their assets are hided into mountain,
Assigning some to check their villige on The Lantern Festival.
After they were sure it’s safe,they released sky lantern as a message that they were safe.

Long words short,
It’s a message of safety.

But we use it to make a wish nowadays….

It is meaningful,isn’t it.
Hahahaha…..
