Sometimes I feel kinda pathetic cause I frequent this forum. I mean, after all, I haven’t lived in Taiwan for a long time. My date of removal:
November 1, 1999. That’s over six years ago. And I’ve been back to Taiwan for a visit only once since then. In fact, come to think of it, I’ve now been back in Canada just a bit longer than I was in Taiwan in the first place. Time flies!
My excuses for frequenting this forum? Here they are:
- I had a great time in Taiwan.
- I enjoyed the expat community in Taiwan when I was there, and at times I really miss it. This is one way of participating in it.
- My job (Chinese translation) and my wife (Taiwanese) keep up the ties and the association with the place and the language.
- This is a pretty good forum, all told. It’s an interesting mix of personalities and topics.
So, has anybody out there been gone from Taiwan longer than I have while still posting on or viewing Forumosa? Or am I the only (sad, pathetic) one who can’t get on with his/her life?
