Return to Taipei

The last time I was here was August 2009, for my grandfather’s funeral. Much has changed: the house (remodeled), my cousin’s job status (employed), and the location of my extended family (spread out in three points across Taipei). But some things never change – or at least they won’t for a long long while.

My uncle wakes up every morning at the crack of dawn to exercise. On weekends, he’s responsible for buying breakfast.

My uncle: the middle child (my father is the eldest).
Interests: long walks to the temple, the stock market, the newspaper, fried pork sung, and living to 100 at least.

My breakfast: Tuna sandwich with a cup of sweet hot black tea (or ‘red’ tea, as they call it here).

Chinese New Year is just around the corner…I can’t wait!
