I’m Taiwanese and I was born and raised in the lovely harbor city called Kaohsiung (okay, it really only started to be lovely around 2008-2009). I graduated from the graduate program in Linguists at National Chengchi University (NCCU) in Taiwan. My love for Taiwan was always there, but it took some effort from engaging in vigorous discussions with my lovely friends, Taiwanese or non-Taiwanese, to draw out my passion to do something about it. It also took me some effort to get rid of my self-censorship because even uttering I love Taiwan was and still is somehow “political” on this island. My linguistics background has granted my some insights in the language situation in Taiwan, and this blog is my pursuit in broadening my knowledge in Taiwan issues.
