The USA is the place I was born. Canada is the place I was raised. Taiwan is the place in my heart.

Taiwan is a land of extremes.

Water rationing has been underway for months in northern Taiwan due to record lows in rainfall. Now that the typhoon season is upon us; the drought is over since there have been heavy rains throughout the island over the past 5 days … but now parts of Taiwan (e.g. Tai Chung) are experiencing FLOODING!

Such is Taiwan, the land of extremes.

What do I mean by that? …that there are extremes in political opinions, personal opinions, in the way that new regulations are implemented, in the range of what’s legal and/or illegal… The society is going through major changes and reforms at such a rapid pace that it seems like new legislation is being enacted daily and there's always some heated debate going on over a new issue or proposed reform.
