Came across your blog while visiting Taichung after a 17 year absence. Reading about the racism issues here brought back quite a few memories. I was living in Taiwan from 1991 to 1998 (half of those years in Taichung). Got married in 1996 and then returned to Montreal with Taiwanese spouse ... the main reason being I'd much rather raise our kids in a multicultural environment like Montreal than here despite the financial rewards (I was working in the import/export business while here). Absolutely no regrets about our decision.
The one who’s sick is this society. It’s the adults. It’s the parents who were brainwashed, like me. You were a little prince who always had pure thoughts. You completed your mission. You made public opinion boil over all right. You’ve made us brainwashed adults rethink things.
New blog post: Spare a thought for the Western men trapped in #Taiwan. This is my commentary on the article in #Japan Times, that caused a lot of buzz among foreigners in Japan. How many parallels can be drawn here? I think quite a few.
I have no idea why I have 5.4 million views on #Google+, as I am really seldom posting here. Check my views from yesterday (left) and the ones of today (right). In less than 24 hours I received almost 9000 views, but no comment and just one +1.
