There are more and more Taiwanese people who have forgotten the importance of freedom.I study at a university in Taichung. Some of my classmates even claime that Taiwan is a part of China. I always feel sad about this. In the future 2008, I think Mr.Ma may win the president election. At that time, we will again to fear China which will force Taiwan to return to.

This is my first time to leave a comment on your site. I hope you can keep suporting Taiwan.


I'm really upset reading your post. Suppose you have a brother, who is a criminal. You can denounce his crime, but you can't deny your relationship. Whatever you think you are, other ppl see you as his brother. Face the fact is the first step towards a better life.

It's just sad to see comment like Max's. There is no need for Taiwan to be a part of China just because we have a common ancestry. We have a kinder, gentler, fairer, freer, all around better society than China, and we like to keep it that way. Way of life, man, is what separates us apart. Who cares that we are related hundreds of years ago. In China, people treat each other like shit and officials are corrupted. Why does anyone want to be a aprt of that?

Sorry Max, I mean Andy's comment is sad to see. I misread the line.


Max- That is interesting about your classmates. Most polls show that there is somewhere between 10-20% of people who support unification, but I haven't had a conversation with anyone who has expressed that opinion. I am wondering where they all are.

Andy- Your fatalist attitude is rather strange, I think. Face the fact that Taiwan must be part of a system such as China's? With no self-determination? I think you need to consider the order of the world as actually being determined by people's will.


This is the first time I've been to your blog and I think its great!

Andy: That is one of the most ridiculous things I've heard. All the European countries have common ancestry but do they view it as such? If you, for example, told a French person that he or she was in fact from England, he or she would definitely not be happy nor would an American you called English. "Deny your relationship... brother"??? Pffft

    This blog stands against the fictitious law passed in March 2005 by the P.R.C. proposing that unification is Taiwan's legal and moral duty, even to the point of the P.R.C. using force to uphold that fiction. TaiwanTiger ascribes to the statement of Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council that:

    "The Republic of China is an independent and sovereign nation and its sovereignty rests in the hands of the twenty-three million Taiwanese people. Only the twenty-three million Taiwanese people have the right to make the final decision on any change to the nation's status and future."

Taiwanese Food

    So, this seems kind of crazy, but hey we all love to eat, right? In Taiwan, it's considered a hobby. When you go on a trip, you need to stop at such and such town for their great ______. Noodles, shrimp rolls, chicken thighs, soup, whatever. Everyplace seems famous for some addition to the Taiwanese culinary tradition. So here I am attempting to document some of the traditions of eating, the places to go, and the food itself. This will be a difficult and slow moving project, because I feel really strange photographing food in the presence of other diners, especially when I have to stand on a chair to get it all in.
