Lai Yu-jia likes babies. She adores their cuteness and softness. And this is the reason why she chooses to develop a series of products related to new born baby such as hand-made soap, bracelet, and towel etc. She studied Chinese birth customs and noticed that many traditions are lost or changed through time. But she see these traditions a way of showing how important and valuable a baby is to a family in old days. For example, a tradition called Xi San (literally wash three) happens on the third day after a baby was born. People will give newborn a bath in hope of health and peace. Lai uses her creative thinking to design products related to these customs and hopes that the value of these customs can be saved although the form might change.


Will you be interest in knowing what kind of cousin did crown princes have on their table? Two students Hong Yu-ting and Jiang Wang-yu not only reveal this secret but also bring these foods to life. According to Jiang, the Taiwan Nichinichi Shimpo, a newspaper published during Japanese colonial period in Taiwan, has recipes for a famous restaurant where Japan crown prince dined during his visit to Taiwan in 1923. They follow the recipe and bring new energy into these cousins by design four different lunch boxes. But the cooking process is not always smooth. Although they like to cook, it still took about three months to make sure every dish in the box is perfect. Because these are banquet dishes, they also made some alternations in order to fit them into a lunch box. Take a fried egg dish for an example, this dish was originally a soup. Yet they managed to conserve the soup flavor by adding it to a batter and then fried it .  “I want to show people that Taiwan also has fine banquet dishes besides local dishes”, Jiang added in the interview.
