When I made up my mind to become a travel blogger, I decided to begin my career in a country in Asia. I chose Taiwan as the first country for my blog as I had read many interesting things online and from fellow travelers that really made me want to experience life in Taiwan.
Less overtime, more time to enjoy Taiwan
I'm a Malaysian-Chinese who has been living in Taiwan for more than six years. If you want me to describe the beautiful Formosa in my own words, I would say it has become my second home especially when I have married a Taiwanese.
As a foreign national who has spent over seven years living in Taiwan, I consider this country to be my second home. Having first come here when I was 23 years old, I have, in many ways, grown up here.
I am not a morning person. For years, I accepted early classes, lectures, and Chinese character dictation questions without complaint and without choice, but the arrangement was hardly optimal. I reached breaking point the summer after my sophomore year in college.

Riding on the back of a scooter is an exercise in letting go. Your ride shows up and leaves the engine idling; they hand you a spare helmet; you throw your leg over and before you can remember what you were so damn worried about ... it's happening. At some magical point of weaving through choked streets lit by illegible billboards -- up and under narrow one-lane overpasses -- passing chicken trucks and ever-menacing blue pickups, the secret fear of handing control over to a stranger slides away and gets left behind like an old self.
No words sufficient for the days of memory
I've been wracking my brain for days trying to come up with the perfect topic for this piece. Something that would offer insight and wit, with just the right amount of humor. But alas, nothing came. And as the deadline drew near, I had no other choice but to review each and every detail of my trip in the most methodical manner I knew how. But once again, to no avail.

A small island, but a very special place
I remember seeing a television remote control when I was 4 years old, back in my home in Glasgow, Scotland. "Made in Taiwan" was written across the bottom.
Being a foreigner in Taiwan is a funny thing. The way you meet people and the relationships you have with them in Taiwan are completely different from the way you get in touch with people in your native country.
My first impression of Taiwan when I came back last time in January was the revamped Terminal 1 of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. I noticed there were a lot of signs courting Chinese tourists in the Airport's duty free shops. I also found that there seemed to be a lot more R.O.C. flags hanging along the main roads of Taipei.
