well, for anyone who do not even recognize oneself as Chinese, it is bit difficult to understand the national pride for a chinese and how important a unifying China is.

Anyway it's always nice to have foreigners defending Taiwan's political status.

Well I figure I'm a minority! I'm just an Australian of Singaporean-Malaysian heritage who visited Taiwan (was my dad's idea) and enjoyed it, and was quite impressed with it. I also have a connection to the Hoklo, since my ancestors were from Fujian province.

I gather that any foreigner with decent amount of international knowledge would know that Taiwan is not a part of China. :P

You should...yeah I've met quite a few Taiwanese, many on working holidays. There's some nice Taiwanese restaurants, and I do have a weakness for bubble tea lol.

Damn you Taiwanese for introducing something so addictive! lol


In Taiwan half the drinks in 7/11 are some kind of tea...it's a tea lovers paradise. Literally, we would even have milk tea with breakfast lol.

I prefer these kinds of tea


Those in 711 are more convenient though,since 711 is just SO widespread here.
